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.
Lady Liana (#7)
Her dirt speed figures from early in her career make her the horse to beat.
Has proven that she can handle route distances on the turf.
Should sit a good trip just off the speeds.
7/2 on ML
Uno Emayo (#6)
With three speeds projected to vie for the lead, should get a fair pace to close into.
Faced an impossible task in the Sleepy Hollow last time.
Has kept good company and may be better than speed figures suggest.
5/1 on ML
Elusive New Yorker (#11)
Ran well last time after breaking towards the back of the pack.
Has woken up since switched back to dirt.
Last two speed figures stack up well against those of the favorite.
4/1 on ML
