In the Colonial Turf Cup I kind of overlooked Straight Story because I had bet Take the Points ATB and was trying to will him home to 3rd but it didn't happen. I won't overlook Straight Story again after watching him in the Va. Derby today. I picked Battle of Hastings for my win bet, but thought he had been beaten watching live. I was surprised when he was announced as winner. I was, however, very dissappointed with Hold Me Back. Take the Points looked better than he has in sometime. He was actually right there on the rail with a shot to win. Great race.
With Nicanor scratching I believe given his recent performance at Colonial that Battle of Hastings may be the horse to beat. Also, don't count out Hold Me Back who has done pretty well in most of his 3 yr. old races. I think you can through out the Ky. Derby on him because a lot of good horses got bad trips in the Derby.
