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.
Mister Monolo (#2)
Race Rating of last race suggests that this is actually a drop in class.
Is in the best form of his career right now; 101 speed figure is the highest last-out number.
Showed a great deal of determination holding off a good horse in Banker’s Holiday last time.
3/1 on ML
In Spite of Mama (#6)
Recent dirt efforts are slightly better than they may appear.
Projected to be stalking a pace that favors runners on or near the lead.
Loved two turns on the inner track last season.
6/1 on ML
Sol the Freud (#2)
Was done in by having to duel on the inside through fast fractions last time.
Projected to be racing outside the other speed today; can stalk the pace.
Owns some of the highest recent speed figures in the field.
