|7||Mayberry Deputy||Julien R. Leparoux||Kenneth G. McPeek||15/1|
Relentless Dancer has scored two victories by combined total of 19 1/2 lengths. This is a major jump in class for him. He worked a sharp half mile on Monday.
Tiz the Law is the class of the field and the horse to beat in this race. He had a poor effort over the sloppy at Churchill in last outing. He should be sitting behind until the final turn and start to pass the field down the lane.
Toledo needs pace to chase to have shot of being on the board. The speed in this race will improve his chances of being on the board.
Mayberry Deputy was a maiden winner at Gulfstream surface last month. He came through moderate fractions and won going away.
Ete Indian won his debut sprinting on turf, and in his most recent race he won an allowance race on the dirt at Gulfstream. He needs to improve to find a spot on the board. He is moving up in class and should not be a factor.
J’s Top Three Picks:
- Tiz the Law
- Ete Indien
