Thunder Moccasin (7-5) won an extremely impressive debut with authority, earning an excellent figure with laudable energy distribution. Ever So Lucky has missed a bit of training with foot bruise but was an impressive juvenile for Hall of Famer Sheppard; do not underestimate talented colt but it doesn't seem prudent to take him at a short price.
Of the possible money horses, Il Villano followed series of pace tops with a lifetime best figure. He returns with good spacing and will be running late here. Fast developing Quick Wit never has taken a backward step and attracts Dominguez. Using all three beneath Thunder Moccasin in the exotics.
