September 14, 2019 06:28pm

#2 DECORATED INVADER (9-2) has two turf routes under his belt and he ran well both times. The $200,000 Keeneland sales grad fired a turf bullet for this Sept. 6, and his new pilot Irad Ortiz Jr. should have running style options with the versatile colt. 

#6 Mystic Lancelot (3-1) might be a good one for Todd Pletcher. He easily beat a next-out winner in his turf sprint bow Aug. 15. The $450,000 purchase will probable stalk the pace under John Velazquez.

#5 Keep On Truckin (4-1) easily went all the way as the chalk in both all-weather sprints. He switches surfaces and has to travel another 2.5 furlongs. He looks like the one to catch. 

#10 Talking (12-1) attended slow fractions and kicked home nicely in his flat mile turf debut at Monmouth Park Aug. 17, and the runner-up was a next-out winner. He will probably try to close this time. 

#1 Vitalogy (8-1) scored in a 16-horse field in his turf sprint bow in Ireland July 24, and he was an okay fourth in a Group 3 event in Great Britain Aug. 21. He might be this good.
