8th: OC/N1X, 3yo-F, 8.5f-IT (DD)

Nice feature with any number of soph gals with upside including a pair of Chad Brown first time 3yo starters in imported Elysea’s World and expensive Grey Stark. Clement’s Width gets back to turf and Shug’s Hold Harmless within 6L of Catch a Glimpse in the Herecomesthebride. Not Taken for Matt Gatsas and Terranova holds intriguing hand with host of siblings that were very good on grass. Looms a threat at 20-1 under hustling Carmouche..

Next Best: #1 Width 7-2 3rd
Best Value: #7 Not Taken 20-1 6th

9th: NY-MCLM/$25k, 3+, 7f

Bad bunch o’ coconuts and as Andy Serling says, bad horses win bad races, so be open to anything. Maker’s Croke Park drops from NY-MSW company as does Ronen’s We Did and note that We Did faced open MCLM’s for $30k two back and fit. Nic Esler good with firsters and Peculiar Sensation won’t have to be that special to win here. Caelifera and Cat’s Landing have form cycles that point to efforts that can win. Levine drops down, cuts back, turf to dirts and doffs hood with Wizard of Id. In other words, think you’ll need to cover a handful to close out sequence with any confidence..

Most Likely: #2 Croke Park 7-2 6th
Best Value: #10 Wizard of Id 15-1 7th
Next Best: #8 Caelifera 8-1 11th
Exotics Use: #4 Peculiar Sensation 10-1 3rd
