Morning line favorite Invisible Crown (#3) ran well enough in his first start off the claim for Michael Pino, finishing a late-running second with a very swift pace (color-coded in red) to close into. He’s run plenty of competitive speed figures, but he’s starting to run out of chances. We prefer a couple of more lightly raced runners that should offer better value.
He’s One Wild Dude (#2) put in an even effort in his debut, splitting the field while never really threatening for the win. He’s back at the same level today, but gets a very positive rider switch to Joel Rosario, who has been successful (100 rating) when riding for Lisa Lewis. The Pace Projector is predicting that he’ll be closer to the pace today.
Our top pick is MADEYOURPOINT (#10), who ran very well in his turf debut.
He is getting a more subtle, but still positive, rider switch: to Jomar Torres while dropping in class. Despite getting involved in a fast pace and steadying at the top of the stretch, he was still running on late last time. He’s likely to go off at a generous price for these low-profile but capable connections.
