Monmouth: Double Desert a Fat 12-1 in the 8th

Email

Taking an early look at today's Monmouth card there is one longshot that intrigues a bit. That's Double Desert (#8) in the 8th race. She lost to a few of these same horses when last seen but that race presented a much more difficult pace scenario, as there was a fair amount of speed in the field and the race set up for the closers. That doesn't seem likely today, and Double Desert should benefit from forward position this time around. In fact, she may even be able to shake loose and control the pace. At 12-1 on the Morning Line, she's worth a long look.
