Monmouth: Value in Later Races


Be wary of Auto City (#11) in the 5th race. He lost his latest as the favorite but he had a terrible trip, including a very slow start, and that left him with too much to do in a race which lacked pace, and thus favored the speeds. He won't be a huge price but he may not be favored, either, with Chromospere likely to do the honors in that regard.

In the 7th, Ciro's Clearance (#8) seems well spotted after landing in a race where his closing syle was compromised, due to a lack of pace up front. Ciro's Clearance was behind early there but he closed well despite chasing the controlled pace, and he won two straight prior to that, at least one an impressive score.

Vision of Noah (#9) returns to a sprint after a couple of routes in th, and though he was off the board in his latest try at this six-furlong distance that was a sprint devoid of pace, and he had little chance to close. No such worries here, as there does seem to be a better set-up.
