Calder: Some interesting maidens

Email

An interesting group of 2yo maidens going a mile. Great Scot the current favorite at 2-1 although his first race and only start came on the turf. Does get Lasix today. Second choice is Universal Soul at 3-1. He's made up some ground in a couple of shorter dashes but can he sustain that rally at a mile?  Truly Distinctive was a nice second behind runaway winner in his debut and adds blinkers which should put him on or with the early pace where he should be joined by REprized Halo who turned in a game two turn bow with claimers.  The Waco Kid has chased home a couple of runaway winners while losing ground through the final furlong of all three previous starts.  Racing Aptitude was bet to a stunning 7-5 in his debut, showed nothing but now returns off a couple of decent works at a whopping 15-1. Looks like the value play. Jockey Luis Jurado took off Truly Distinctive to ride Stolen Posse who has been whispered around in some corners as a good thing.   Good Luck sorting this one out.
