Today's feature is a bit more interesting going in than were those offered earlier this week--meaning there may be an opportunity to get paid in this spot.

There's enough early speed signed on to insure that the winner will be a close-range stalker or late runner. We prefer the former tack.

Bird House has really come to hand this late winter and fall, has the aforementioned tactical speed, favorable outside position, hails from a barn (Gary Gullo's) that's having a profitable 2013. Further, his recent runners have been live and the filly will appreciate the switch back to the winter track, over which she's half her four lifetime starts.

Taking Bird House to win, no price restrictions, an exacta box with well placed Pennymine, and adding price shot Jitney to the super-exotics mix.
