Race 4: Magnifier (#4)
I think this horse is going to get an aggressive ride from Kendrick Carmouche in a race that doesn’t feature much speed.
Never was given a chance last time at Gulfstream when he was taken back and steadied early while buried down inside.
Danny Gargan is very selective about the horses he starts at Saratoga, so I think it’s meaningful that he’s shipping this one up from Florida.

Race 6: High Promise (#3)
Ran well going 1 1/4 miles last season and may actually prefer longer distances.
Should find himself on the lead this time, and I think he’s going to react very well to be allowed to run freely in front.
Ran much better than it appears last time after getting shuffled back to last around the far turn.

Race 9: Focus Group (#4)
Was hindered by a slow pace at Belmont last time and had to alter course late when in the midst of his run.
Will appreciate stretching out to a 3-turn 1 3/8 miles, since his stamina is his greatest asset.
Any residual moisture in the ground should help this horse produce an effective late kick.
