Rumor in allowance
Three-year-old filly Market Rumor broke her maiden on the fast main track here when contesting a $70,000 maiden special weight event back in July.
The Afleet Alex filly pulled away from her five rivals to register a five-and-three-quarter length success that day and she has twice been tried in stakes company subsequently, finishing a nine-lengths sixth in the Grade 3 Monmouth Oaks at Monmouth Park the following month prior to registering a much improved neck second in a minor stakes at Laurel Park last month.
With Glamour Girl and Gabriel Saez likely to want to make the running as they did when winning at Churchill Downs last month, our selection looks likely to be able to race just behind the pace as she bids to go give trainer Ian Wilkes a first victory at this meeting.
This drop to allowance company is a further positive with regards her chances and, having shown good form here in the past, she is taken to register a second career victory with jockey Chris Landeros in the saddle for the first time since that maiden special weight triumph back in July.
