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.
Makes second start back since a long layoff.
Has run competitive speed figures before and after the break.
Liked the inner track in the past.
10/1 on ML
Steadily improving with each start.
Was racing on a dead rail through the stretch last time, which may have cost him his best chance.
Runs like a horse that should appreciate two turns.
8/1 on ML
Candid Desire (#4)
Has run competitive speed figures in last two starts.
Raced very wide around the turn last time, losing significant ground.
Should get a contested pace to close into.
