While Topper T. (9-2) might not be as fast as several of his rivals, he’s in top form for a repeat of his most recent local win in today’s sixth a Oldsmar, an NX3/optional.
But has been been improving since Jon Arnett haltered him for $20,000, his figures showing the coveted incremental improvement in recent starts.
His pace numbers have been improving to which adds some security in terms of his proper present level and apparently Arnett likes what he’s seeing.
Arnett has entered under the allowance condition rather than offer him up for sale for $100K, five times the claiming price, and that speaks loudly to us. Leading rider Samy Camacho takes a return call.
And so we’re taking Topper T to win at 7-2 or greater and key-boxing exactas with distance specialist About Today (2-1) and the talented, if unpredictable but properly spotted No Que No (5-2).
