Race 3:

Grumpelstiltskin (#5)

Recorded the highest TimeformUS Speed Figure in the field.

Was off about a length slowly before rushing up last time.

Forced the pace to collapse in a race dominated by closers.

5-1 on ML

Race 4:

Jan’s Reserve (#4)

Was squeezed back at the start last time, putting him farther back than he would have otherwise been.

Made a four-wide premature move on the far turn.

Figures to get a more honest pace to close into Saturday.

12-1 on ML

Race 7:

J. J. Jake (#3)

Was shuffled back on the turn last time before re-rallying in the stretch.

Has a pedigree to suggest he can handle this distance.

Carlos Martin gets a 90 trainer rating with horses trying routes for the first time.

8-1 on ML
