BUMBLE BEEE has been off the track since October but won a maiden race by a wide margin over track and trip in between moderate efforts on Turf. She’s weighted to beat these if running anywhere near her official mark. Munificent has undergone wind surgery since last in action and also gets additional headgear while Mops Gem is preferred to Hotalena and Gypsy Boy of those that have been handicapping.
