Man of Wiregrass (#6)
Put in a decent effort against a salty group of open claimers last time, going a distance that is a little short for him.
He is one of the few horses with speed in a race where two of his major rivals are plodding late runners.

Did well to survive a fast pace last time in his first start against winners.
Trainer Dave Cannizzo gets an 86 Trainer Rating with runners going from stakes to allowance company.
He is a half-brother to accomplished turf sprinter Acquired Cat, so shouldn’t mind this turn-back to 5 1/2 furlongs.
