11th: Sir Barton, 3yo, 8.5f (P3, DD, Hi-5)

Terrific group of second tier (currently) sophomores with host of double digit players with upside to consider.. Watch Me Whip (12-1), ATR house horse courtesy of Dale Romans, may be this good trying stakes company after MDN scamper; No Mo Dough (12-1) superb moving to 2 turns in ALW win at CD Derby Day; Steady developer Society Beau (12-1) never misses a check; Honor the Fleet (5-1) moves to 2 turns having done little wrong for Lou Albertrani in first 3 career starts. Eye-crossing cast and black hole for P5/P4..

12th: Dixie (G2), 3+, 8.5f-T (P3, DD, Hi-5)

Nothing clever here, though 10-1 on Chad Brown/Castellano (Catapult) feel like obligatory inclusion..

Most Likely: #7 Blacktype 4-1 3rd
Next Best: #4 Projected 3-1 2nd
Best Value: #8 Catapult 10-1 4th
Exotics Use: #2 World Approval 7-2 WON ($7.00)
Super/Hi-5: #10 Ring Weekend 4-1 10th


13th: Preakness (G1), 3yo, 9.5f (DD, Hi-5)

Critics can talk all they want about Always Dreaming winning with 'perfect trips', but horses like him are making their own trip with their sustaining speed. Am reminded the more I think about it, of the 2003 Preakness when Funny Cide was similarly being called a perfect trip Derby winner and proceeded to throttle foes. Potential parallels to that edition don't end there either, with Classic Empire perhaps playing role of Peace Rules here and Cloud Computing subbing for Midway Road. Think the place to stand against always Dreaming is at Belmont in 3 weeks..

Most Likely: #4 Always Dreaming 4-5 8th
Best Value: #2 Cloud Computing 12-1 WON ($28.80)
Next Best: #5 Classic Empire 3-1 2nd
Exotics Use: #6 Gunnevara 15-1 5th
