No. 8 Only the Gold will get a great set up for his closing run, No. 10 Noble Kent will go better with the big drop in class. 8-10
No. 3 Miss Fast Eddie got squeezed at the start in her last race to lose all shot when exiting our HTW list, we will give her another shot, No. 8 Appearance gets a drop in class and Bejarano gets back on. 3-8
No. 3 Frumious comes off a long layoff but looks live off of those bullet works, No. 4 So Brillant always gives his best and may be an overlay. No. 6 Secret Circle is the stablemate of So Brilliant and has never been worse than second in seven starts with five wins. 3-4-6
We will need to take a stand and single No. 5 Can the Man in the players pick five as he looks to have found an easy spot. 5
The hot riding Nakatani gets on the Steve Asmussen trainee No. 3 Tickle Again, No. 7 St. Malo’s Gate has not panned out for Carla Gaines but this expensive 4yo filly could wake up today. 3-7
Players pick five
No. 4 Final Step ran huge in his one and only at Del Mar and only needs to handle the dirt to get the job done today, No. 7 Eddie’s First is a very live first time starter out of the sire Square Eddie and the dam Teresa Ann who has dropped five winners from five starters including a stakes winner. No. 10 Enterprising is a Tom Proctor first time starter who draws his buddy Gary Stevens. 4-7-10
Exacta box 4-7-10
How can I not use the Jeff Mullins shipper No. 1 Sharp Richard at 20-1 with Joe Talamo in the irons going a flat mile on the grass, he broke his maiden going 7-1/2 on the grass, No. 3 Magnum Force gets Bejarano which makes him a force with these. No. 11 Ransom Canyon will be making a big wide late run. 1-3-11
No. 4 Cunning Ride broke his maiden on this course and has a very nice last work, No. 6 Fighting On is a perfect fit at this level. No. 10 Master Rudy who is 15-1 on the morning line looks like a live price play with the bug boy Orozco getting the call. 4-6-10
Exacta box 4-6-10
We will single No. 1 Big Bane Theory in the late pick four, this colt has won two of his four starts on this turf course. 1
No. 7 Meet Me for a Kiss gets Sutherland in the irons and that sounds like a good idea, No. 12 Glad’s Gals may like this 7 furlong distance. If playing exotics in this race use the No. 9 Frannie’sspirittoo, she is always there but has no win spirit. 7-12 (9)
HAVE A GREAT COLUMBUS DAY!
