No. 1 Norvsky just broke his maiden on this course at this distance, this 3yo gelding looks like an up-and-comer on the grass and could come right back with a repeat win. No. 5 Moonlit Habit exits our HTW list and looks very sneaky in this spot. 1-5

Key Play

Race 8

Really don’t like the ones that have run in this 32k maiden claimer so we will shoot with No. 1 Scofield Barracks, a first time starter for Bruce Headly with Solis riding and No.3 Shark City, a comebacker for trainer Ed Moger who has been know to pop big with horses like this. 1-3
