Patrol Leader can bounce back at Mountaineer

Monday's opening race from Mountaineer is a $5,000 claiming event for 3-year-olds and up traveling one mile on the main track. 

#1 Patrol Leader (3-1) finished a fading 4th (beaten 10.75 lengths) as the favorite at nine panels in the slop here Dec 7. He rallied for the show at 6f in his prior local start and an effort like that would work well in this spot. Houghton knows him now and the versatile gelding can rebound on a fast track. The rail post is clicking at a 20% rate (395 race sample) and he could offer a hint of value as the possible third betting choice.

The Plays:

$12 to win, $18 to place #1

Watch out for the sleeper, #4 Ridin' Hard (15/1) - This is a long shot race with an overlay trainer and a horse that has the total pace scenario. Bet #4 to win at 10/1 or better. Exacta 4/all. Tri...4/3,6,1,2/all. Good luck!!!
