Rockingchair class drop?

At Lone Star in today's 2nd race (5.5f dirt, 3yo & up fillies)): "Rockingchai"r (fav @ 3-1 mlo) is clearly the fastest horse.She has run only five races. All as a 3 yroand were 5.5 or 6 f. The last three were sprints@ 5.5 f : 11 (last),11-1, 15-3, 26-2-tu & 15-1.The next closest is "Just Talking" (12-1 mlo) with a 13 3 races ago also @ 5.5f. What do you make of "Rockingchair's" class drop from an ALW$31,080 to a $10M claimer? I'm going to play "Just Talking" and" Harpiel " (7/2 mlo) with a best of 14, last race out. These appear to be the two best after RC. Any opinions-help me learn? Will RC bounce, or get a new top? Or is the class drop off a 5th place finish in a 5.5f from the 11th pp significant?
