Post Time 3:57PM EDT--If it stays together, we have a rare 13 horse field on a Monday at Delaware.  From the Derby on Saturday back to bread and butter on Monday!  Delaware Park is particularly friendly to those with early energy distribution#6 Five Shadwell is an interesting value play at odds of 10-1 or higher.  His debut at Parx back in December was decent enough.  He engaged in a speed duel from the start but showed some courage to hang on to fourth place against 10 other rivals.  Has the speed potential to clear this field.  No published work since 4/16 which is worrisome.  No world beaters in here, so worth a play.  #5 Monroe's Hope is your likely favorite off the narrow miss against similar.  Big gap in his work pattern raises some flags.  Gets blinkers so you know he'll be winging early.  Let's take a stand against in the win spot.  #12 I Suppose will benefit from a very honest pace.  He'll be running fastest late and could prove tough to deny in a field packed with runners that prefer to get it over with early.  #13 Rythmin Simon is facing much, much easier and long works are encouraging.  #3 Midas Terms look to be a good candidate for the bottom of exotics.

Thanks all...the scratch of the 5 made the 6 look even better. Ticket building strategy didn't result in a cash but hopefully some of you had the square-priced winner.
Very nice call!
nice call shutty!
