Leave the Basil, Take the ‘Scarole
Today's Aqueduct feature is a state-bred secondary allowances optional claimer for older males going a flat mile and it will be very difficult keeping early line favorite Go Get the Basil (9-5) out of the winners' circle.

He owns the tactical speed to keep contact in a relatively paceless group and reunites with Solis, who gets along very well with the newly turned 4YO.
Taking Go Get the Basil to win, no price restrictions, and key boxing him first and second in multiples with recent Nevin claim [32%] Indy Tune (4-1), possible pacesetter Joe Mooch (10-1) and Call for the Clock (2-1), nicely drawn and second off the layup.
