** Best Bet Aasr benefited from his first two races in maiden company to graduate in his third start by stretching out to a mile with slightly richer maidens to score an impressive beyer number of 96. He moves up a level but his closing speed should beat this ordinary group. Key to horizontal wagers.

 * Best Value Hold The Salsa gets a short field loaded with blistering speed which should favor his tactical speed running style. Yes Eagle Orb was ahead of him twice in their young career, but a suicidal pace definitely favors my value selection…………………… Key to vertical wagers.
