Prolific winner Joey P must break sharply from the rail position or risk getting trapped. A fresh horse, he likely will press the pace of early speedster Mirine's Victory. If that scenario unfolds, Yes Yes Yes beneath Mike Luzzi should be stalking from the cat-bird seat, third. When he kicks for home, he should have the jump on the field's best late runner, Pavo.
