 ** Best Bet: It’s Gravy has been very consistent in his first 4 starts going different distances with four different jockeys Today’s scenario is no different. The son of Fred will try a mile for the first time and gets the services of Eric Cancel. This gelding just missed in his last versus stakes competition.

* Best Value: Love And Love has won three straight at the Big A since February 16th 2020 and is coming off her career best Beyer. Her tactical style should allow her to stalk the speed and take over in mid-stretch.
