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.
Hottie Potati (#5)
Earned a field-best 93 speed figure last time out.
Race ratings indicate she’s coming out of a race that was at least as tough as the maiden special weights the others exit.
Drawn well outside of the two other speeds.
3/1 on ML
Bi Light of Day (#3)
Has been in great form since returning on the inner track this winter.
Projected to be on the lead in a situation favoring horses near the front.
Ran better than it appears last time after getting bumped around at the start.
5/2 on ML
Race is predicted to feature a fast pace; she is one of a few closers in the field.
Had to overcome a three- to four-wide trip around the turn two back.
Was compromised by a slow pace last time.
15/1 on ML
Turco Bravo (#6)
Is good enough to win races at this level on his best day.
Last race suggests he may be rounding back into top form.
Would offer value as the longest shot on the board.
15/1 on ML
Tribal Fighter, the 1 horse:
Took money in debut and was eliminated at the start.
Has returned to train extremely well out of the gate.
Trainer gets 100 rating with this rider.
4-1 on ML.
Inexcess Time, the 7 horse:
Has the fastest last-out speed figure in the field: a 94.
Pace Projector shows him in striking distance early.
Facing easier today.
5-2 on ML.
