At the lukewarm price of 4/1, Schivarelli is the morning line favorite after running second against $100,000 optional claiming foes April 24 at Keeneland in his last start. Schivarelli, trained by Eddie Kenneally, has been a bit of a curious horse in his nine-race career, seemingly flirting with top-class ability on numerous occasions, but failing to establish himself as a legitimate stakes contender. With three wins to his credit, Schivarelli has missed major time after beginning his career with two easy victories and running fourth in the Grade 1 Wood Memorial in 2014 behind Wicked Strong. Schivarelli is ideally suited for the 7 furlong trip (1 for 1 in his career) and has trained forwardly at Churchill Downs since his last race.

Ruble takes on stakes foes 

At 5/1, Ruble makes the jump from the $50,000 claiming level to tackle stakes competition. The Brendan Walsh trainee was a facile winner April 29 at Churchill, winning by 4 ½ lengths prompting Walsh to try the five year-old Exchange Rate gelding against stakes company. Ruble, a winner of 5 races in 19 starts will get the services of Julian Leparoux, and break from post 6.

Russellin could be live 

Russellin (8/1) is likely to get dismissed by the wagering public, but could represent the best value-based play in the field, after posting competitive speed figures and gearing up for his second start off the layoff for trainer Chris Hartman.
