Wednesday's Best Bet: First Forever leads off at Penn National

Wednesday’s 5th race from Penn National is a starter allowance event for fillies and mares dashing six furlongs on the main track (Post Time 7:49 p.m. EST).

No. 5 FIRST FOREVER (7-2) won her last three starts vs. lesser and she keeps stepping up and scoring. The sharp win type owns early-pressing versatility and she earned an improved speed rating Dec. 3. 

No. 3 Littlebitalily (9-5) was part of the exacta in her last seven starts but she has dropped four straight. She squandered a clear lead Dec. 3 and might be in front in the lane once again. 

No. 6 Cutefacechubywaist (5-2) caught her stablemate Littlebitalily in deep stretch in a similar course/distance spot Dec. 14. She won’t be 6-1 this time.
