Virtually everyone has Dort and AP as the top pair. So let's look a little deeper. Who do you like from the following four: Carpe Diem, Firing Line, Materiality, Mubtahiij? I think you can make as good a case for FL as for any of them.
Nothing wrong with Martin Garcia, but I think Stevens has to get a slight nod in the jockey department between these two.
The debate among HRN folks is already taking shape. AP or Dortmund? Carpe Diem or Mubtahiij? Materiality will have backers. This is great news from a wagering point of view. Even if AP and Dort are co-favs on the first Sat in May, Carpe Diem and Mubtahiij will take plenty of money. Should get some juicy prices!
Seriously, Call Me George?
May single this guy in multi-race wagers this Sat. If he doesn't win, I have no idea who will.
I'll likely mix in either the 2 or the 8 (if not both) with CC and Lea. While I'm intrigued by the 1 turn angle for CB, you do realize that, before scratches, the contenders are 1-9?
6 to upset.
And DRF isn't even charging for it! Maybe I'll make a donation to say "thank you" for allowing me to read about it.
For wagering purposes, I don't know anyone who likes deep closers (they are too pace dependent). But for watching purposes, you have to love them! I watched the Forward Gal Stakes again this morning. For most of the race, Birdatthewire was struggling to stay on the screen. Talk about coming from the clouds! Happily, I singled Consumer Credit, played the 1 and 8 in leg 2, and then spread 6 deep in the third leg of the pick 4, tossing in the 4 for fun! Cashed a nice ticket when Dubai Sky came home safely in the 11th.
