Race 1: After You (#6)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting a situation favoring horses on or near the lead and he is predicted to be in front.
  • Earned a 98 TimeformUS Speed Figure in his maiden win as a 2-year-old and some of his rivals aren’t even running that fast now.
  • Has been put through a series of rigorous drills for this return for Neil Drysdale.

7-2 on ML


Race 4: He’s No Lemon (#2)

  • Has been steadily improving ever since Graham Motion stretched him out to this distance earlier in the year.
  • Was ambitiously entered in the Belmont Derby, where he was excluded on the also-eligible list.
  • Barely lost to the classy Pillar Mountain, who looks formidable against a tougher N2X group later in the week.

8-5 on ML


Race 9: Roaming Union (#6)

  • Has shown subtle improvement since the claim by Rob Atras.
  • Is coming in off some of the best efforts of his career in a race where all of his other main rivals are in questionable form.
  • Has always been slightly better around two turns, so should appreciate the stretch-out to 1 1/8 miles.

5-1 on ML
