Richard Hughes presence on PRETTY BUBBLES takes the eye as the latter steps out of maiden company for the first time and she gets a speculative vote. Princess Spirit won a handicap over track and trip last month and should be in the mix again while La Rosiere wasn't beaten far when fourth here on her latest start and is another with claims. Minstrel Lad made the frame here back in June but over a longer trip and the remainder make no appeal.
