An excellent Saturday program begins with a $40,000 claiming miler that appears made to order for #2 Bench Light. The Benchmark gelding whipped a softer field with a strong number last month and looks capable of winning right back on the double jump for new trainer O’Neill. #5 Swift Eagle likes to run second and third a bit more than he likes to win, but with the switch to hot-riding Desormeaux the veteran Sadler-trained gelding has a strong look, especially if he can repeat his nice score over this course and distance two races back.
