A 60% chance of rain could play a role into this race. The temperature will be warm still at 85 degrees.
My 3 picks:
2- Battle Plan
8- No Advantage
My pick to win:
Battle Plan: Won 4 straight races including the last 2 races coming in this distance. Great on layoffs of more than 2 months. Could continue his hot streak on a less than fast racetrack tomorrow.
No Advantage: Only 7 wins in his 20 career starts, but he has Calvin Borel on board and he is great at Churchill Downs. Also, he in his last 10 starts, he has won 5 and finished 2nd twice. A high-pay bet.
Blame: Finished in the top 3 in all 9 starts with 6 wins including winning his last 3 starts. He does great in his 2nd start since his layoff, winning twice.
