Jason Weaver: Enable’s the Saturday nap but plenty more value to be had

Can anyone challenge Enable? Is Accelerate a shoo-in? Weaver with the answers to these questions and more...

churchill-downs Kentucky Derby


Churchill Downs – 16:00

Marley’s Freedom has taken her form to another level for the legendary trainer, winning her three starts for him in good fashion and going sweetly through the grades,

She is towards the top of the market – but deserves to be.

Churchill Downs – 16:38

It looks as if they had World Of Trouble wrong earlier on as he was aggressively campaigned on the dirt. However, since switching to the green stuff he is two from two and his ability to handle yielding track may well swing it in his favour.

Churchill Downs – 17:16

Catalina Cruiser is unbeaten in four starts and looks flexible regarding trip back up over 7f last time and shows blistering pace.

He’s 8/5 on the morning line price but he could be so dominant in this division.

Churchill Downs – 18:04

Magic Wand goes up against her old rival Wild Illusion again, but she has managed to beat that runner previously, The reason for selecting her to turn back last time out form around is that the Aidan O’Brien runner has the help of medication.

Churchill Downs – 18:46

Promises Fulfilled is another challenger on the card who is trying to re-invent himself back down in sprinting.

He ran in the Kentucky Derby behind Justify but was beaten by miles and the team had a rethink. He may well just go under the radar at around 6/1 on the morning line.

Churchill Downs – 19:36

Now is the time for Expert Eye to step up as he’s been a nearly horse up until this point. A two-turn mile with Frankie in the saddle could prove his optimum conditions – take a look back at his last start on Arc weekend and he was the unluckiest runner on the card.

Churchill Downs – 20:16

Wow Cat was a champion back home in Chile and suffered her two defeats to date for this trainer, Chad Brown. However she has progressed to win last time out over the exact same trip and it was a ready victory with the jockey not having to do much in the straight.

At around 8/1 she’s an each-way player.

Churchill Downs – 20:56

Enable might just be getting better, if that’s even possible.

After only two starts for the 2018 campaign, we can expect a flying dismount and she will be the cornerstone of many an accumulator.

Churchill Downs – 21:44

Accelerate went off an odds-on shot last time but was only getting going late on, so the margin of his victory disguises how well he was going at the line.

He is a real grinder, and with tough conditions looking likely his experience against West Coast should see him collect the big prize.
