Hot Barn Will Give No Quarter
Even though it drew seven horses overnight, very competitive renewal of the G2 Hall of Fame Stakes. Bobby's Kitten (7-5), the most accomplished, is a deserving favorite (7-5). Bashart, 2-for-2 on Spa turf and at the distance (4-1) is an obvious contender, and is the troubled-last out, aptly named Long On Value (5-1).
But no barn has been hotter than Graham Motion's, whose Give No Quarter (3-1) comes off a strong-finish allowance win in a large field making his season's debut at Belmont last month, Mr. Motion is a profitable 22% effective in LAY-2 scenarios, there looks to be sufficient speed up front and Maragh takes a return call with pole position. Tiz Wonderful cot has lots of upside.
Taking Give No Quarter at early line odds or greater and keying first and second in super-exotics with his rivals here.
