Race Summary

  • #8 Quality Step: Figures for a great trip while getting first run on the stretchout speed drawn on the rail, and this guy's recent races are all competitive here. Single?
  • #9 Enduring Honor: Versatile sort got run off his feet a bit early last time behind a hot pace but rallied nicely to be 2nd with a big figure, should be closer early here, as the pace looks moderate, and he's really stepped up his game since getting back to the turf; look out.
  • #1 Red Hot Looks: Cheap speed or no, he's almost sure to find the front and has handled the turf in the past. Wouldn't be a shock to see him winging it up top and trying to stick around for a piece.
  • #4 Completely Bonkers: Tends to be a bit one-paced in the final stages, but he's still capable of something a bit better than he showed last time out.
  • #12 Honest to Goodness: Heavy hitter won for 16k two-back then was in too tough in the allowance ranks last time, so the drop to 10k will work, as will ll three of his last runs, but this wide draw did him no favors, especially if you're taking this 9-2 ML; using underneath only.
    • Spencer's Final Thoughts: Quality Step looks plenty interesting, and he'd be a big play for me at something like the 4/1 ML price. He's in line for a dreamy trip off a likely loose leader, and his running lines are among the best in here.
    • Nadeau's Final Thoughts: We end the late Pk5/Pk4 in a real scramble, where you could go several different ways, which means the 9 could really fall through the wagering cracks, even though his form of late stacks up nicely here, so give him a look in all the slots, and especially to end both Pks, as he's got a big shot, and yet getting there first would add a ton of value to both sequences.
