6th: MSW, 3yo, 8.5f (P4, P3)

Asmussen-Santana won corresponding race on opening day last year with Holiday Man and Admiral Shepard, who exits the Seymourdini debut at AQU, looks like this year’s model. Tony Dutrow offers Southwest Trail (2nd start; 1st Lasix) for local Ed Anthony (of Loblolly fame), while Dothat Dance ran into Brody’s Cause and Conquest Big E two back. Scissors and Tape ships from FG for Maker-Ramsey and My Chennai Xpress WON will break through at some point. Good looking group for OP’s first 3yo graduation event..

Most Likely: #10 Admiral Shepard 6-1 5th
Next Best: #2 Southwest Trail 5-1 6th
Best Value: #4 Dothat Dance 10-1 9th
Exotics Use: #7 Scissors and Tape 9-2 10th

7th: OC/C, 4+, 5.5f (P3)

Condition calls for non-winner in 6 months and hard-hitter Alsvid fits perfectly. To be fair, several here including Cinco Charlie and Double Ours also look like the race was written for them. Excellent set..
