...more racing!!!  Delaware Park springs back into action and the night cap offers a very hittable Superfecta opportunity.  #3 Nathan's H Q  (3-1) and #10 The Prince (5-1) offer a solid win contender duo for the top of the ticket.  Nathan's H Q is a lightly-raced three year-old shipping in from Gulfstream.  Makes his second start off a five-month layoff.  Won his debut at Delaware going away.  Has killer early speed which is very conducive to this racing surface.  His last two works were solid and Martin Clyde is capable of leading this one to the winner's circle for the third straight time.  Only concern is the amount of speed in the race.  If Nathan's H Q gets unhinged while up front, #10 The Prince will be there to pick him up.  Clearly the class of the field, this Tony Dutrow trainee will be sitting in the cat bird seat about 3 or 4 lengths off the early leaders.  He boasts strong BRIS late pace figures despite laying close to the heat.  With this three-level class drop, The Prince looks poised to pounce.

#4 Sheila's Magic (6-1) and #9 King Rock (4-1) are both closers that will benefit from the hot early pace.  Perfect candidates to wheel in the three and four hole in Superfecta tickets.

Here's the way we'll play it...

$.30 Superfecta 3,10 with 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 10 with 4, 9 with ALL  ($42)

$.30 Superfecta 3,10 wiht 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 10 with 1-4, 6-10 with 4, 9  ($36)

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest...an 8. Very confident that 3 and 10 are the best horses in the field. For those that want to reduce the total price, consider a .10 Superfecta or apply the same strategy to a Trifecta play.
