Two past winners among the 11 entered for the Maryland Hunt Cup

Both Maryland Hunt Cup's 2016 winner, Senior Senator, and the 2017 winner, Derwin's Prospector, both trained by Joe Davies, have been entered for this year's running on April 28.

senior senator last fence G NSenior Senator, who won the Hunt Cup in 2016, won the  Grand National on April 21.Among the field of 11 entries, five are horses that haven't run in the Hunt Cup before.

After the Grand National, Davies said he would wait to see how Irvin Crawford's Senior Senator was during the week prior to the race before deciding to run him.

Senior Senator fell at the third fence in last year's race, but if he runs this year and doesn't fall, he has to be the favorite to win.

He would be ridden by Eric Poretz.

Derwin's Prospector, owned by Garry Brewster, will be ridden by Gonzague Cottreau, and Bruton Street-US' Drift Society, trained by Jack Fisher and to be ridden by Hadden Frost, should be co-favorites if Senior Senator doesn't run.

Drift Society was third in the Hunt Cup in 2016 and lost by 3/4 of a length to Derwin's Prospector last year.

Imperial Way, trained by Elizabeth Voss, finished fifth in the 2016 Hunt Cup but didn't run in last year's race.

Old Timer, trained by Richard Valentine, lost his rider in last year's Hunt Cup and just finished fourth in the Grand National. He'll be ridden by McLane Hendriks.

Joshue G,, trained by Kathy Neilson, fell at the fourth in 2016 and fell at the sixth in 2017, and he finished fifth in the Grand National on April 21, ridden by Eddie Keating, who is named on him for the Hunt Cup.

Also entered in the Hunt Cup are five horses that haven't run over its testing five foot fences, including Jeffrey G, trained by Jason Cole, Sovereign Fund, trained by Stephanie Dowling, Wildcatter, trained by Voss, Gas Can Eddie, trained by William Meister and Prime Prospector, trained by Todd Wyatt
