No. 3 Spirited Sol (6-1) frequently runs his race at this course and distance. The tactical gelding is sharp and could easily make it two straight local wins. 

No. 6 Hammer Lane (9-5) set the pace from the inside post and weakened in the stretch in a local stakes race Sept. 19. He is probably the one to catch. 

No. 7 Resist the Devil (7-2) usually finishes in the top three at Presque Isle. This is his winning distance and he probably will stalk the pace from the outside post. 

No. 2 Franz Josef (5-2) turns back in distance and should work out a decent stalking trip. He won a longer local sprint July 11 and is winless in six starts at this distance. 

Wagers: 

No. 3 to win

Exacta 3-6-7/2

Trifecta 2-3-6/2-3-6/7
