Mewannarose (#5) comes into this off two consecutive wins against similar company, but I’m a little skeptical of him at a short price. He rode inside biases to victory on both Jan. 13 and March 5, and I don’t think his form is quite as solid as it appears. Additionally, he is supposed to get some real pace pressure from Gentrify, given the rider switch to Kendrick Carmouche on that foe.
I’m trying to beat the favorite with SIR BOND (#6), who actually overcame an inside bias to win on Feb. 4. While that win came for $25,000, the 113 TimeformUS Race Rating assigned to that event suggests that it was every bit as tough as the $40,000 claimers that Mewannarose exits. I don’t mind the claim by Bruce Levine, who has had success with this horse in the past.
Underneath him, I’ll also use Los Borrachos (#1), who turns back in distance and faced tougher in his prior sprints.
