Blame The Gods dug deep to score over C&D, while Algodonal was just behind Feature Creature when they took minor honours – also over track and trip – although the latter isn’t guaranteed a run. Too Much War accounted for Jost Sayin last time, but maybe MONEY FACTOR can capitalise on having her sights lowered.
Compensate finished runner-up in a stronger event over track and trip last time and isn’t passed over lightly while Afficionado boasts some useful French form and any market support on her US debut would be interesting. However, AMERICAN TAP scored by nearly five lengths on her second start at Woodbine in October and can prove herself above average here.
Reservenotattained and Louie’s Kingdom both have their sights lowered and look capable of making their presence felt but CAT GONE QUICK shed the maiden tag with an impressive success and could prove tough to catch if adopting the same positive tactics here.
HAUNTEDBYTHEMUSIC could hardly have been more impressive when winning on his debut in December and connections have booked Irad Ortiz Jr for this assignment, suggesting they’re confident now he’s up significantly in class. If the three-year-old falters, the likes of I’ll Fight Dempsey and R Mercedes Boy will be there to pounce.
