This starter optional claimer has attracted 5 runners after scratches, and they’re difficult to separate. 

Winning Connection (#1) makes some sense as an alternative, but I’m not sure he’s going to be a great price either. He was no match for runaway winner Adero at this level last time, but still earned a solid speed figure for the effort. He might have more success if he could get back to the front-running tactics he used early in his career.

The TimeformUS Pace Projector is predicting a scenario that could favor the front-runner. That role could be occupied by GOING IN STYLE (#3), who adds blinkers for this race. He wore that equipment in his second start when he was aggressively used to challenge the superior Forbidden Secret before fading. He subsequently broke through against maiden claiming company, beating today’s rival Winning Connection. Since then he’s lost twice at this level, but he caught wet tracks both times in races that featured some tougher opponents. I like him stretching back out to a mile, and I find it interesting that he’s not for sale today despite being offered for the $50k tag in his last two starts at this level.
