Son of Chai Latte closed against similar last out. This time he looks for a better result than 4th. Has only won once sprinting and that was in his maiden score. For that reason he is in over his head and will need to improve.

Was second to the logical favorite last out but not by much. Already a tough field with some interesting newcomers. If he didn’t win last time it will be hard for him to win today. Not saying it’s a long shot but he won’t have it easy sitting off the pace today.

Tired going long last time which isn’t his game at all. Throw that race out and he ran 3rd in a tough stake where the field went 1:09 for a final time. Definitely puts him in contention. Expect him to challenge the leaders early and forcefully.

Went wire to wire defeating several in the field. Will see some company today on the front end and it will be an obstacle. Nevertheless he’s a proven winner against these horses and there’s no reason to suggest he can’t do it again.

Veteran cuts back after a place effort going long. He’s sprinted before so he understands the game. Perhaps the last race was an indication he’s going in the right direction after a few less than stellar races. Let’s see if Sanny Village has this horse figured out.

Comes out of a Grade 1 to run back where he belongs. Didn’t embarrass himself but whats the difference after not hitting the board in 2 starts.

Closing style suits with speed up top. Will be charging late and for that reason he has a chance to win. Came charging late from the same post with the same number of horses. Dangerous.
