A very competitive eighth race feature at Aqueduct, an optional allowances featuring some talented, albeit absentees. Our preference is for Candyman E (7-2) who won the DeFrancis Dash last fall, improving his 6F record to 6-for-9 but he's been unraced since G3 Toboggan. Fortunately, Tony Dutrow is 30% efficient with lengthy absentees, reaches out for Castellano and this crack sprinter has worked very well at his Fair Hill base

Taking Candyman E to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing in the exacta with Beggarthyneighbor (4-1), returning for Chad Brown, and Nathan’s H Q (15-1), who has run well when fresh and owns competitive figures.
