Hand-selected by The TimeformUS team, Horses in Focus stand out on our feature sets, such as pace projector, TimeformUS speed figures, spotlight ratings, trainer ratings, pedigree ratings, etc. Expect to see TimeformUS Horses in Focus on this blog typically every Wednesday-Sunday. If Horses in Focus are available for tracks with a later post-time, they will be added to this post throughout the day.
Tiz Adore (#7)
Had a terrible trip last time, in traffic for much of the race.
Drops in class from a 99-rated race into this cheaper 91-rated maiden claimer.
May be more settled second time back from the layoff.
3/1 on ML
Tale of Mist (#3)
Half-brother to Tonalist has plenty of upside.
Was facing a very deep maiden field in debut.
May have bled in that race, since he stopped so abruptly; now gets Lasix.
12/1 on ML
Irish Filibuster (#7)
Was in a bad spot for most of his debut and was steadied hard at least twice.
Debut was a merry-go-round race, so he couldn’t make up ground once clear late.
Mike Maker gets a trainer rating of 98 with 2-year-old maidens on the turf.
5/1 on ML
Dancinthenightaway, the 5 horse:
Pace Projector shows her just off the early lead.

Nodiac, the 2 horse:
Makes US debut for outstanding trainer.
Training very well for this.
Trainer gets 96 rating off layoffs.
7-2 on ML.
