It may be a risky game we’re playing here, choosing the favored half of an uncoupled entry, but recent form dictates that we must: Meteorito (5-2) rates to make amends for his narrow defeat last out.
Improved since the Jorge Delgado claim, gelded five year old found himself on he lead in a pace-less race but was hounded throughout, losing by the bob of a head. Check out that effort at GP on June 25, Race 5.
He won his prior start, showing immediate improvement for Delgado, coming from off the pace. He prefers to run at a target and his wide draw with a patient Chantal Sutherland likely will produce that scenario and should keep the odds bettable.
But his stablemate is interesting. Cheaper on paper, Triple Jeopardy (15-1) is coming off a win but is first tine off the Delgado claim who gives Sonny Leon his first opportunity for this outfit.
Triple Jeopardy made a move forward and is on a good line but may not be the same horse switching to Tapeta but value seems assured. If you want to take a chance, you will get paid if he scores.
But we will take Meteorito to win, as he is 2-for-4 at the trip and 1-for-14 at all other distances, at early line odds or greater, and quinellas with his stablemate and King Theo (7-2), making his first start off the Aubrey Maragh claim, a profitable 27% scenario.
