Looks like a week where I'm going for moon shots pretty much across the board! What's happened to me?
Either I'll be looking to buy a new pair of shoes on Sunday, or I'll be eating boxed mac and cheese for a month.
Tom Fool - Comma to the Top ships across the country a week after a brutal race and I'm taking him? Madness, I tell ya! But, there's no foolish Mike Smith gunning for the lead in this one, so he should be sitting pretty and crush these.
Gotham - I don't really like anyone here. Vyjack might get an easy lead and run away with this, but he's going to be bet down. Overanalyze might be able to overcome his post and long layoff, but he's going to be bet down too. So, I'll look to others at a price. I finally landed on Ore Pass...yeah yeah...Maryland horse who hasn't gone two turns...maybe I'll get 20-1. I'll also take a good look at Transparent, who won with ease after a bunch of trouble, albeit in a slow time. If I can get 10-1, I may play both to win.
Swale - Why is Clearly Now 15-1 on the morning line? I'll take him here. We'll see how good they were behind Itsmyluckyday!
Baffle - Rosengold at 8-1 on morning line. Looked fab last out and here's hoping that Caught Napping needs a race
Las Virgenes - Beholder will be, what, 1-5? 1-9? I'll look to the logical alternative in Fiftyshadesofhay. Maybe I get 5-2?
Kilroe Mile - Suggestive Boy will be, what, 3-5? 2-5? Let's try Mr Commons here.
SA Handicap - Man, what to do here? Game on Dude will get an *easy* lead. I don't think he'll be stopping this time, but he's going to be such a short price. Ron The Greek just rolled last out. He looked really good, but he's going to be bet down too. I'll take a left turn here and go for Called To Serve. New shooter who's training up a storm. I really hope I'll get 6-1 on him!
Good luck all!
