Spectacular Road has faced tougher opposition than today’s when beaten on his last two starts and will appreciate the drop in class. Never Have I Ever is also likely to be on the premises, while Tale of a Song can make the first three as well.
Sky D has been running with credit in stronger races than this at Gulfstream of late and can make his first start for Ian Hemingway a winning one. Snow Lion should also give a good account if getting a run from the reserve list. Sinatra Devil is another to take into account.
Mardi Gras Girl proved a disappointment last time but she was bumped at the start and looks worth another chance. Main danger Lady Breanna will be suited by switching back to dirt from turf, while Tale of V K comes here at the top of her game and should also be thereabouts.
The Barclay Tagg team are in great form at the moment and Hail Michigan makes plenty of appeal switching back to dirt from turf in a weak maiden claimer. Todd Pletcher’s Silver Maker is sure to be popular but it has to be a concern that this $800k purchase is now in to be claimed for just $12.5k on only his third start.
Quiet Company was our selection when scratched from a weaker event in favour of this race yesterday, but she still looks worth backing despite being in this slightly deeper contest. Carolyn’s Smile, Teenage Kicks and Bird Map are all with chances, but they’ll have to go some to catch the front-running Quiet Company.
Youshouldbesolucky has largely been running well of late and should give another good account in this turf claiming contest. Positive Phil put up a good showing when third over C&D last time and can prove the main threat, while Smell of Roses is another that should go well.
