Needed his debut effort, in which he was sluggish early and racing greenly.
Ran much better than it appears in his second start, hanging on well despite setting a fast early pace.
Should appreciate the slight turnback to six furlongs.

Did not get the best of trips last time when stymied between horses before encountering traffic in the stretch.
Gets a postitive rider switch to Jose Ortiz.
Is bred to be a talented turf runner since his dam won more than $500,000 racing primarily on this surface.

Tale of S’avall (#1)
Typically runs well when he has rail position, so this inside post position should benefit him.
Two of his four career wins have come at this seven-furlong distance.
Was in the best form of his career at Saratoga, and will be a factor if he runs back to those races.
