Most turf sprints are interesting by nature but today's particularly so because it has drawn disparate styles, lots of form and top riders from top outfits. It might be one of the rare times value will be available on a Chad Brown trained, Joel Rosario ridden turf runner. Southpaw Slammer is 4-1 on the early line.

Newly turned 4-year-old appeared in need of recent return from layup, finishing willingly after the fact. With lots of speed signed on, a race under is best and an outside post, a strong late run should get the job done. It will take nothing less.

Taking Southpaw Slammer to win at 3-1 or greater and key boxing him in multiples with super sharp Drunken Love (6-1), dropdown Saint Pete (3-1) and the very speedy Starship Wildcat (5-2).
