Fighting Words

For obvious reasons, Mourinho (3-2) is a deserving favorite of today's G3 Smarty Jones off his excellent second to Greyvitos in the G3 Bob Hope, and the fact that Bob Baffert is an otherworldly 45% successful shipping into Oaklawn Park.

But we're looking for a minor upset with Combatant (2-1) who also was second to Greyvitos while spotting that one recent conditioning in the Springboard Mile at Remington--whose horses transition well into Hot Springs.

Taking Combatant to win at 2-1 or greater, an exacta box with Mourinho, and adding promising Navistar (5-2) to the super-exotics mix.
