POST-SCRATCHES


4th: MSW, 3yo, 1m-70y (P6, P3, DD)

This is a very nice group and it may require using half of them for safe P6 passage..

Most Likely: #1 Apartfromthecrowd 4-1 WON ($7.20)
Next Best: #7 Opportunity Cost 7-2 9th
Best Value: #8 Robbins 10-1 3rd
Exotics Use: #10 Into the Breach 5-2 2nd
Super Add: #2 Morocco 10-1 4th


5th: Jazil, 4+, 1m-70y (G/S, P3, DD)

As discussed with Nick Tammaro on Weekemnd Preview, playing against Royal Posse (6/0-3-0 on Inner Track) seems prudent. Sunny Ridge won Withers here last year and can set up shop behind the speeds..

Most Likely: #2 Sunny Ridge 6-1 WON ($7.00)
Next Best: #3 Royal Posse 7-5 4th
Best Value: #5 Grasshoppin 20-1 2nd
Exotics Use: #6 Doyouknowsomething 7-2 3rd


6th: ALW/N1X, 4+, 1m-70y (P4, P3, DD)

Outstanding group including late-to-emerge-at-3 types Diversify, Know Your Customer SCR'D and Exulting.. Older prices Pretentious and Nigel's Destiny have plenty to like from off the pace..

Best Value: #10 Exulting 6-1 9th
Next Best: #9 Diversify 6-5 WON ($2.70)
Exotics Use: #4 Pretentious 5-1 8th
Super Add: #3 Nigel's Destiny 10-1 4th

Exotics Use: #7 Cat's Landing 6-1 3rd


8th: ALW/N1X, 4+, 6f (DD)

Another nice ALW set, this one going short. Ultra-consistent Sciacca gelding Candid Desire, now 5, has banked $200k+ and has nibbled at open company last pair. Two of his 3 career tallies have come on this strip and he should get an ideal trip stalking the honest pace. Invading Conquest dispersal refugee 'Expresso' gets first try on main track for which he was bred..

Most Likely: #3 Candid Desire 5-1 WON ($10.00)
Best Value: #4 Conquest Expresso 20-1 5th
Next Best: #9 Divine Interventio 4-1 2nd

9th: MSW, 3yo-F, 5f-T/115' (P4, P3, DD, Hi-5)

Mysterious-looking set of 3yo lawn-dashing fillies with 4 firsters and 4 others making 2nd/3rd starts. Few distinguishing characteristics to latch on to, but Gary Barber paid $290k for Objective Complete, a NY-bred Miss Impazible filly at the FL Sale last March who is working sharply for capable first out barn..

Most Likely: #2 Objective Complete 4-1 6th
Next Best: #3 Raging Town 3-1 7th
Best Value: #6 Morticia 15-1 WON ($25.40)

10th: Ft. Lauderdale (G2), 4+, 8.5f-T/48' (P3, DD, Hi-5)

Conventional wisdom says Divisidero will need one over track where he has arrived late in 3 previous stake tries, but natural progression from time last seen may enable him to overwhelm this good group. Plenty of pace to run at if he starts tardily. After that, feel free to spread far and wide building tickets..

Most Likely: #7 Divisidero 4-1 3rd
Next Best: #1 Heart to Heart 3-1 4th
Best Value: #9 Flatlined 15-1 WON ($32.60)

$1 Exacta (9-8) Paid $202.50
$1 Trifecta (9-8-7) Paid $1,591.70
$1 Superfecta (9-8-7-1) Paid $4,628.20



11th: Hal's Hope (G3), 4+, 1m (DD, Hi-5)

Wilkes has had to deal with an issue or two with Bird Song, but has maintained Unbridled's Song/Bird Town colt as talented as anything he has had in his barn. Chance for a moderate pace gives Leparoux opportunity to cruise up front, something he does well when given opportunity. Price will be right..

Best Value: #3 Bird Song 6-1 2nd
