Jockey Agapito Delgadillio got to know him last out when finishing a close second, he will get a perfect rail trip. No. 2 Boru is the speed and the speed has been holding on this turf course. No. 7 Time Is Now drops in from straight maiden races and will wake up in this spot. 1-2-7
We get only five $15k fillies and mares going 6-1/2 furlongs. We will take a shot and single No. 2 Red Stitch who just missed at this level in her last start, her first at this level, she will love the extra furlong today.
We get just another five horse field. This time $25k starter allowance runners going 1-1/8 on the grass. No. 1 Tough It Out get the good turf rider Brice Blanc back on for John Sadler. No. 5 Twentytwentyvision drops in class and gets his second start off the Mike Puype claim, he hits at around .30% second off the claim.
We will need to go four deep in this maiden race for 3yo going six furlongs. We will use No. 2 Tilted Towers who owns a big work for his first start; No. 3 Mike Operator who is out of the dam One Pacific Tower who has dropped 6 winners from 6 starters; No. 6 El Vasco with the hot rider combo of Flavien Prat and Richard Mandella and No. 7 Oakland Mills a first time starter out of the dam Natural Glow who has dropped 5 winners from 5 starters. 2-3-6-7
No. 1 Rinse and Repeat has been one unlucky horse. He could have won his last two starts but trouble cost him in both. Maybe he’ll have a clean trip today. No. 8 Foster Boi exits the same last race as Rinse and Repeat, he just missed by a neck. 8**-1
