The card looks fairly chalky early on. In the first race #4 Superfecta is 9/5 on the morning line and likely will go lower. The West-trained gelding should appreciate this shortened sprint trip and can make amends for his recent runner up effort at 3/5 across town. If you’re playing the early daily double, focus on #2 Plug Me In and #5 Trimaran in the second race. The former ran like a short horse in his recent comeback and was victimized by a slow pace; he’ll be sharper and tougher today with the return to the high priced claiming ranks while retaining Bejarano.
