#1 SLEEPY EYES TODD (3-1) owns early-pressing versatility, and with speed to his outside, he will probably sit a ground saving stalking trip. He is sharp and fresh, and is fast enough to win this on his best day.
#7 Mocito Rojo (9-2) is a classy flat mile specialist, and he is a graded winner at this course and distance. He should get plenty of pace to chase, and Gerard Melancon guided him to a couple of stakes victories in 2019.
#9 Vangilder (8-1) should get a nice setup for Steve Asmussen. The four-year-old colt needed his one mile return at Will Rogers and should move forward. He easily won an entry level affair at this course and distance last year, and followed that up with a stakes victory at Albuquerque and a runner-up finish in the Super Derby (G3).
