Tiz Lately, 14 of 24 in the money lifetime, goes sprint to route today. My main interest in the 5YO mare is her excellent turn time gain and increase while having a lower speed figure last time out. Yes, this can be meted out while adjusting in distance but this tactical runner is among the faster of her type. Seeking big upset here.
In the Classic, I like Surgical Strike, Uncle Jerry and Itsnotezbeinbreezy.
Surgical Strike, favored at 5-2 is an easy pick. 3rd in the American Turf at Churchill last out, also 3rd in the Spiral, winner of the Battaglia Memorial, he owns fastest speed figure for the distance, has positive pace form having a small new top of 93 last time out while running 6 wide. I like his recent pattern of figures alongsides.
