No. 7 Gordian Knot (3-1) captured all three starts, and his last two victories were stakes races. He captured both local outings and should get pace to chase.  

No. 12 Winning Time (4-1) set the pace and ran off the screen in his local state-bred maiden win on Nov. 7. He drew outside the other speed.  

No. 2 Ninetyprcentmaddie (7-2) won all three local starts, and he keeps improving as distances increase. I like his early-pressing versatility. 

No. 4 Picture This (9-2) went all the way in his last two dirt sprints at Delaware Park. He improved his speed ratings in all three starts and should make his presence felt from the outset. 

No. 1 Keithsendsshelloooo (8-1) is consistent and versatile. He finished in the top three in all eight starts and placed in a pair of stakes races. He picked up his first win in a maiden claiming sprint at Penn National last time, and I like him more underneath. 

Wagers:

No. 7 to win

Exacta 7-12/1-7-12

Trifecta 2-4-7-12/2-4-7-12/1
