7th: San Gabriel (G2), 4+, 9f-T (P4, P3, DD, Hi-5)

There is ZERO pace involved here which opens the door for someone clever to seize control with miler types Next Shares and Cleopatra’s Strike the most glaring candidates. Woodbine ex-pat Cleopatra’s Strike now with D’Amato and lures Prat and today may be the right time to latch on at 8-1. As you heard when he joined ATR Wednesday, both of the Proctors are big players. Inside ground-savers Liam the Charmer & Platinum Warrior can impact..

As discussed with Baffert Wednesday, this is a test for work-in-progress Coliseum. He is a very aggressive colt and Joe Talamo is doing his utmost to get the Godolphin Tapit homebred to relax. (Here’s his 12/30 bullet work where you can see how hard he pulls early: https://www.xbtv.com/video/coliseum-…ber-30th-2018/). He may out-talent this group in his 2 turn debut, but he also could burn up and prove vulnerable late. He’s giving considerable experience away to the likes of Gunmetal Gray, Gray Magician and stablemate Much Better..
