We decided to let spacing and connections decide this one. Saint Of Saints (3-1) is coming off a career best effort last time out when second at 6 ½ furlongs following his pacesetting try in the key Derby Trial. The mini-turnback helps but he returns relatively quickly.
The same can’t be said for Gypsy Robin (9-5) who’s attempting to win her fourth straight and was a Grade 2 winner at Keeneland start before last. However, she has reacted off top efforts in the past and meets males for the first time.
So it’s Doctor Chit (5-2) for us, an open-lengths maiden winner over Keeneland Poly before shipping north to Woodbine and winning a first-level allowances in another dominant performance. He’s held his form well since, if workouts are a measure, showing an ability to handle dirt on Saratoga’s Oklahoma training track.
Taking Doctor Chit to win at 2-1 or greater and keying him first and second in exotics with his rivals here.
