Race 2: Swiping Dan (#3)
Raced very greenly in his first start with blinkers last time; should be better prepared this time.
Faced better maiden special weight fields in his two prior route attempts.
DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Kelly Breen is 11 for 32 (34 percent, $4.40 ROI) with maidens going from sprints to routes on the dirt.
5-2 on ML
Race 4: Thirsty Donnerstag (#3)
Did well to make a wide closing move last time on a day when the rail was the place to be.
A one-turn mile is probably his best distance.
The Pace Projector is predicting he will get a fast pace to close into.
8-1 on ML
Race 6: Eighth Commandment (#1)
Was hindered by racing on a dead rail on Jan. 21.
Should appreciate the slight stretch-out to 6 1/2 furlongs.
Should receive an honest pace to close into with speeds like Ribbonite and Awsum Roar in the field.
