Another pretty open and excellent betting Raven Run. I'm picking 4 which shows how tough it is for me to narrow my picks. Lucy N Ethel who's done nothing wrong. Southern Girl who's unbeaten in sprint races, Curlin's Approval who's bringing a solid Florida form and Sophia's Song who's run solid races in five different tracks and takes blinkers off for this.
Surprised that Princess of Sylmar and Untapable is above Go For Wand. Looks like the most recent runners had more attention on the list.
IMO Frosted will be entered in BC Classic. I just don't see his connections settling less than the big prize. We'll find out tomorrow.
I do like Up With the Birds here as he kept solid company in his career and did win the Nijinsky at Woodbine. My only caveat is that he doesn't seem to win outside of Canada. I do like the up and comers Renown (solid win at Lrl at this distance), Greengrassofyoming (won Gr. 3 at AP, kept solid company in last pair and gets class break) and Camp Creek (longshot but did win at this distance in Breeders Stakes and curious to see how he runs outside of Woodbine. Worth a look at 15-1 ml odds).
I'd add Renown and box them.
I think Frosted will run in the Classic. I just see Godolphin going big with him since this will most likely be his last shot at BCC, unless they plan on running him at 5 which is rare for horses under Godolphin. Winning the classic (which I agree with the majority here will be tough since his best this year has been at a mile) or at the least placing would be a nice feather in the cap for marketable stud career.
I'll be going with Greengrassofyoming, Up With the Birds and Camp Creek here.
AP Indian is definitely a contender here and he might an underlay. Like how the connections have brought him along this year and he's as game as they come and has early and stalking capabilities. I want to see the ml odds before I'd make final selections.
Forgot to add Drefong in here.
The BC Sprint is always tough for me and of course this year's running won't be any different. Eager to see the final entrants but do like Lord Nelson (his home track and unbeatable at this distance) and East Coast invader Joking. Might change later but these are my initial favorites.
