A Merry Old Soul Was He


Never want to take a short priced favorite returning from a long layup, especially going a flat mile, but Matt King Cole (2-1) has returned at middle-distance one-turn routes before.

The first time he was beaten a nose by a nice colt, Gift Box, while finishing 18 lengths in front of the show finisher. The second time he did so, he won. Outclassing this group on paper, why not again?

Taking Matt King Cole to win, no price restrictions, key-boxing exactas with Gentrify (10-1) and Three Alarm Fire (4-1).

Number of Selections since 2007: 2182

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 660-428

Amount Wagered: $4,364.00 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $4,465.70

Profit to Date: $101.70

Close, and Hopefully a Cigar


Today's Feature Race Analysis courtesy of promotional arrangement with http://www.123BET.COM

The G1 Cigar Mile at the Big A is highly contentious with no clear cut favorite. All the major contenders, of which there are many, have their attributes, but none can escape reasonable criticism. We refuse to take a short price.

A horse we believe matches up fairly well on class line and should definitely appreciate shortening up to a one-turn mile is Divining Rod (8-1).

Undefeated at the trip, albeit around two turns, trainer Arnaud Delacour adds blinkers and reaches out for Daniel Centeno, who won his last two rides on the 4YO, and coming off a good second behind Noble Bird in Keeneland's Lafayette.

Taking Divining Rod to win at 5-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Threefiveindia (6-1) and Connect (5-2), adding Anchor Down (2-1 to the super-exotics mix.


Number of Selections since 2007: 2181

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 660-42

Amount Wagered: $4,362.00 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $4,465.70

Profit to Date: $103.70

Taking the Three-Year-Old in the Clark


Churchill's Grade1 Clark Handicap in recent years has become one of this country's preeminent handicaps and today's field does little to disqualify that notion. It's interesting, competitive and replete with top class runners.

This is the day that Gun Runner (4-1) should finally earn his G1 bones but, of course, it won't be easy.

However, he comes up to this the right way off his BC Dirt Mile placing, and recently has not enjoyed the easiest of trips. No excuses here. With his tactical speed and pole position, he should be able to sit in perfect position until Florent Geroux pulls the string at headstretch.

Taking Gun Runner to win at 3-1 or greater, key boxing the exacta with Noble Bird (7-2), and adding Shaman Ghost (8-1) and Hoppertunity (5-2) to the super-exotics mix.

Number of Selections since 2007: 2179

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 659-423

Amount Wagered: $4,358.00 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $4,459.50

Profit to Date: $101.50 (Thursday results not included)
