Race 3:

Highway Star (#3)

Ran well to win the Go for Wand two back over a couple of next-out stakes winners.

Was wide against a pronounced rail bias last time, costing her any chance of being competitive.

The TimeformUS Pace Projector is predicting she will be racing close to the pace in a situation favoring horses on or near the lead.

5-1 on ML

 Race 7:

Big Louie D (#4)

The TimeformUS Pace Projector is predicting he will be in front early in a situation favoring the leader.

Earned a field-best 124 TimeformUS Speed Figure two races back.

Was involved in a fast pace (indicated by red color-coding in the PPs) in a race dominated by closers last time.

10-1 on ML

 Race 8:

J Boys Echo (#1)

Was racing three- to four-wide around both turns on a day when you wanted to be on the rail in the Withers.

Previously had gotten a less than ideal ride in the Delta Jackpot, costing him a better placing there.

Drew a great post position down along the inside this time.

8-1 on ML

 Race 9:

Bred to Boss (#5)

Got a questionable ride from the apprentice last time, finding trouble at multiple points during the running.

Gets a significant rider upgrade to Rosario Montanez.

Has previously run speed figures that would make him competitive against this field.

30-1 on ML
