It's hard to know where the early pace is coming from with any certitude but we do link the idea that Ambusher (4-1) is coming into this off a new pace top and is getting class relief dropping from graded stakes. The spacing is good give his recent schedule and Brian Hernandez Jr. is taking a return call.
Taking Ambusher to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Zucchini Flower (7-2), from very live conne3ctions, and Natalie Victoria (9-5), who should benefit from recent return from a layoff.
