Win Pick

1:54 pm Churchill Downs (Race 7) – Legendary Gift +500

There are likely to be several future winners in this maiden field but the one of most interest is the Eddie Kenneally-trained Legendary Gift. She ran very green on debut in January, but did much better in the Keeneland slop last time. With that positive experience under her belt, she looks capable of improving again  and is taken to find around three lengths with her reopposing rival Seascape, with her barn’s runners in good form.

Win Pick

2:23 pm Churchill Downs (Race 8) – Attorney Tim +250

Although slightly off the boil when last seen at Fair Grounds in March, Attorney Tim is usually a consistent performer. He is forgiven that latest effort and taken to return to his usual standard at a track he has performed well at. As one who tends not to do his best work until late, he can sit in behind from his wide draw and be delivered to challenge from off the pace. His turf Beyers stand up in this field and he looks capable of a second career success.

Great Workout

Win Pick

4:09 pm Belmont Park (Race 3) – Great Workout +300

Bet into favourite on debut at Aqueduct last month, he was the narrow winner of a maiden special weight over what looked to be an inadequate 6f. He came late to win that day and both his style of running and his pedigree suggests that he should be suited by being switched to a route this time. He’ll know more about the game this time and with his half-brother, Mo Ready, third in the Grade 1 Belmont Derby over 1m2f last year, he may be capable of a good step up this time and is taken to win again.
