Left from post 9 in his first start of the year and was parked forcing a quick pace, held well until the three quarters in what should be a good tightener off the layoff

EIGHTEEN -

Blasted to the lead in :25 4/5, rated the half, paced a :26 3/5 third quarter opening up a two length lead and had something left to win clear in 1:49 1/5

BLATANTLY BEST -

Left from post 8 and was used hard to a :26 first quarter, tucked in the pocket, looked for room in the stretch but was caught in tight quarters

FULL CODE -

Pulled first over into the second turn, grinded into contention against a sharp front runner, paced a :27 third quarter, finished gamely for the place

MAJOR WAR -

Left from post 5, was three wide part of the first turn, was used hard to clear past a :25 2/5 opener, yielded, chased the fast pace and excusably weakened in the final sixteenth
