Friday finale is to be run at one and one eighths miles on the turf. Top choice is No. 3 Apreciado who ran a great race here three weeks ago. The cutback in distance today should suit him well. Also like his sheet pattern. Speaking of speed figures, No. 4 Paddy O’Dini has impressive numbers. Morning line 30/1? We realize he’s kept lesser company, but numbers don’t lie. Likely favorite will be No. 7 High Promise. His last race at Churchill was a solid effort. Trainer Brian Lynch has good stats, especially when teamed up with jockey Leparoux on the lawn.
