Breeze Of Spring should appreciate the extra 200m after hitting the line nicely to nearly place behind the runaway winner in both starts last month and can figure in the finish. Telecom Rocket relished a step-up to the 1,400m for a rallying fourth to Bellagio after showing glimpses of form in four of his opening five straight 1,000m runs. He'll go close. Royal Chocolate tamely faded last start and steps up in trip but had been knocking on the door in six of seven other 1,200m runs at both tracks and has the speed to lead or take the sit carrying a light weight in a possibly paceless race. City Legend is still trying to recapture his best form after soundness issues but is clearly capable when right, including rallying seconds in three of his opening four C&D runs this term. He can't be written off.
