#1 WHISTLE ME HOME (5-2) has early-pressing speed and the rail, and his new rider Pablo Morales might just go on with it in a race without much early pace. He has not been showing early speed recently, but that was mostly due to turf, wet tracks, and outer posts. 

#3 Malio’s (4-1) likes to be forwardly placed, and he was competitive in all six starts this year. He probably fits with these.

#5 The Curt Fox (7-2) is a contender on numbers but his lack of speed is a concern. He has been settling for minor awards recently, and a rallying underneath finish might be the best he can hope for in this spot. 

#7 Sacramento Q (8-5) is back around two turns in his second start after the Gerald Bennet claim. All five of his wins were around one turn.  

Wagers:

Exacta 1-3/1-3-5
