(7) I DRAINTHESWAMP A – left out and took the lead briefly before getting shuffled to fourth. He was pacing up the inside but had no room as the rail was completely shut-off and he had rivals to his outside. He’s got speed off the gate and hopefully he finds himself in a good spot early, with racing room late. Marcus Miller gets the drive tonight and I’ll side with him for some value.
(4) PASSA-GRILLE BEACH – was locked and blocked by a wall of horses turning for home last week and had no chance. Draws well here and might be able to get a good piece of this with a trip.
(5) BURNHAM BOY N – NZ shipper who had two lackluster qualifiers and will now make his NA debut on lasix. Patrick Ryder qualified him both times and he will now pick up the services of Dexter Dunn. I’m not sure what to make of him, though.
