As much as handicappers such as myself like to bet on horses “on the come,” rapidly improving, whether it be physical development, or a barn or equipment change, sometime you have to stick with the form-and trips, especially when the ‘come’ horse is a short price.
Fulton Market (3-1) certainly is an improving three year old and Tom Proctor is treating her accordingly, giving her plenty of recovery time from her last big maiden score, a key race that has produced no less than four next out winners.
But Trevess (4-1 loves two things: the trip and Gulfstream’s Tapeta Track. For one thing, she’s 6-for-13 at the trip. For another, she’s won half of her eight starts on today’s surface.
And check out her last run at GP, AUG 5, Race 8. You don’t win too many 5-1/2 furlong sprints on any ground racing five wide throughout.
She’s paying the price for her good record, lugging 124 pounds here. But she will be bettable because of Proctor’s filly.
Betting Trevess to win at 5-2 or greater, and a quinella with Fulton Market.
