Handicapping Picks for 04/06/2012

Race #7 - Rating = 2
#8 Circle the Moon - Fair odds 5/2
#7 Twin Six - Fair odds 5/2
#4 Cat Talk - Fair odds 7/2

Circle the Moon won at this mile trip when last seen versus Cal-Breds only at this NW1X allowance level and with Talamo up then as now and with the best last race Equibase Speed Figure in the field (104) to repeat or improve on he would win his 2nd in a row. Twin Six got poor posts in his last 2 races and tired after leading but did come from off the pace three back in his turf rout debut and under Rosario (who rides today) so if he can relax a bit in the early stages he could return to competitive form good enough to win. Cat Talk makes his 2nd start after coming back from 6 ½ months off and with Smith riding back after getting familiar with him and having suffered from some traffic trouble at a critical stage of the race last out or likely closer but still 4th and 1 ¼ lengths from the winner at the end he rounds out our trio of contenders in this event.
