"...she can follow up her win from last time..."

Timeform on Malibu Mischief

#7 Malibu Mischief - Aqueduct R5 (19:22)

There's a fair chance that Malibu Mischief will get an uncontested lead in this $25k claimer, and she'll be very tough to catch if that is the case. Starting out for new connections, she can follow up her win from last time, with Radiantrithym fancied for the forecast.

#5 Trappe Valley - Hawthorne R3 (19:55)

Trappe Valley wasn't at his best last time but is worth giving another chance to, having shown an ability to bounce back from poor efforts in the past. Touchofchilipepper may emerge as the main danger, while American Heritage can't be ruled out either.

#1 Hide and Street - Hawthorne R6 (21:25)

Both Hide and Street and Rocket Queen come into this contest in good form, with narrow preference for the former, who may get a good trip just in behind the pacesetters. Kalliste Rose is another who's in good heart at the moment and looks best of the rest.
