Turnbacks R Us

A choice of two features offering the same purse of $77,000 on the turf but we'll stick with the more conventional 7 furlongs as opposed to the mile and a half "rider's race."

Ordinarily, this would be a good chance to try to upset the Chad Brown-trained favorite Hillhouse High (6-5) with Christophe Clement's finished-well-too-late last out Scatcapade (4-1) with Belmont winning pilot Joel Rosario.

But the favorite has a little too much performance figure edge, the better position given the dynamic, and Chad is an otherworldly 38% and profitable turning back into sprints off routes.

We'll take Hillouse High to win, no price restrictions, exacta boxes with Scatcapade and uncoupled mate Tasmona (6-1), switching to Castellano, and will try to fill out super-exotics with price shots Inspired by Grace (10-1) and Knacque (8-1).

Number of Selections since 2007: 1548

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 471-296-240

Amount Wagered: $3,096 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,186.40

Profit to Date: $90.40
