Race 3: War Chest (#4)
Was impressive in his winning debut at Belmont last year.
Got poor trips in each of his last two starts against winners.

Race 7: Wegetsdamunnys (#11)
D’ Funnybone is a decent 13% turf sire, and the dam Mystic Miracle was a 4-time turf winner.
Her last race is better than it seems given the wide trip.
Trainer Jeremiah Englehart is better known for his dirt runners, but he gets an 84 Trainer Rating in turf sprints.

What does Timeform think about my boy jack over beyers and his chances in the Kentucky derby field of possibly 20. I exuded his 3rd place finishes because of the ride KD gave him and I feel now he knows the horse better and he is able to rate him better from far back especially in a deep field with a deep tiring track as Churchill. I like the way he gallops past the wire and feel like he 1 1/4 mile distance will be within his reach at the top of the stretch mowing down the tiring horse late except the speedster like audible, justify, magnum moon and Mendelssohn. Your feedback is important to me
