Monmouth: Joey P. Can Make Amends

Email

I'm really expecting Joey P. to bounce back in today's 8th race off a sub-par effort in his latest, when he was off a step slowly. That really cost him, as he weakened late after prompting the pace, but with a clean getaway from the rail today he may be able to control the pace. Todd Got Even is in tremendous form, no doubt, and he can win this even if he has to run down a loose Joey P., but in terms of value, and given Joey P.'s past success here he's worth a play, especially in Pick 3, 4 and 5 plays. Todd Got Even is a must-use, of course, but he's likely to be around 6/5 or so, vs. around 5/2 for Joey P.
