Graham Motion will saddle Miss Temple City as the morning line favorite at odds of 8-5. A dark bay daughter of Temple City, she has been on the board in all four career starts and will be trying to earn her first stakes victory.

Ayaady stepping up to stakes company
Second choice at 7-2 on the morning line is Ayaady for trainer Chad Brown. A gray daughter of Tapit, she will be stepping up to stakes company for the first time.

Javier Castellano will be back in the irons and they will break from the rail as she goes for her second win.
Lady Zuzu may be rounding into form
