HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
BIRD’S I D: Raced in some traffic and finished evenly when fourth in his most recent start on class hike to restricted allowance level; holding good form, so include.
D J’S STORM: Shot to a clear advantage and yielded in the stretch when a good second in her first start since early-July most recently; she’s the one to catch and beat next time.
DUCHMASTER: Gave an improved effort with rally to be third in blanket finish most recently; can get overdue maiden score for J. Gagliardi barn next time.
JULES CAESAR: Raced with pace, took over, and posted nice score when switched to turf for the first time in his 20th career attempt most recently; right back.
PETIONVILLE’SDREAM: Chased the pace and weakened to finish fifth in his first start off claim/layoff most recently; class hike did show confidence, so expect more early and throughout next time.
4*SPECIAL: CLASSY ZIP: Put in big middle move to blow things open in the stretch and then hold on for two-length tally over restricted stakes rivals; hard to knock five-for-eight career mark.
LONGSHOT: SPEEDY SWEETY: Battled early and weakened to finish fourth on class jump to allowance scene most recently; very good form lately, and can still offer value for solid T. Kreiser barn.
ACTIVE DUTY: Chased and only had an even finish for sixth when cut back to seven furlongs off a slew of route efforts; sharper for next time.
MALIBU TIDE: Faded to fifth in allowance try most recently following good third in maiden debut; back to maiden company for score.
POLAR SURVIVOR: Chased the pace and stayed on to finish a good third off a slow break in her racing debut; juvenile daughter of Survivalist can be player at restricted level.
PRESS HERE: Raced wide and gamely but could only manage fourth behind blowout winner in her latest; on the board in six of 11 tries, so include in gimmicks.
SPIRITED MISS: Rallied off a slow break to be along in time for handy debut win over nine rivals; juvenile daughter of Sky Mesa for Oxley/Casse team appears to have a future.
TYZACH: Chased wide, put in early run to contend, and then stayed on evenly to finish an acceptable fourth in first synthetic try at demanding seven-furlong trip off brief respite; primed now.
4*SPECIAL: SISTER FRIEND: Gained wide and finished a narrowly beaten second in yet another good try most recently; keeps sharp form and typically offers value – works for us.
LONGSHOT: DEAD ON: Lagged early and never threatened but did manage to pick up fourth of 10 in a useful racing debut; might want more ground for M. Pierce barn.
