0.75 units.  bombs away.

race 10

2 WP

20/1 ml.  late speed, distance, stamina, pattern.  question on distance on this surface.  question on class (grinded it out into slower fractions in last two against cupcakes compared to these).  like the big move up in class.  like the off the pace style around two turns.  note this is a change in running style.  like the improving pattern maybe he really woke up as a 5YO.  daddy got better with age as well (GZ).  feel like there will be a hot clip here and it sets up for someone rolling late.

this is a solid crew.  however I don't see any real solid horses that can run 105 or better consistently at this distance.  i don't see any supahstahs here but some are legit.  Fort Larned is the fastest horse but i think he could get gobbled up late against this quality of competition.

so, bottom line taking a shot with a bomb.  enjoy the day guys

Also like the recency but no real edge a couple others are sharp as well and appear quite physically fit and ready to roll.  Hymm Book interesting here as well but don't know if we can expect his best ever he seems to have shown his best already.

Also noted this skipper sent a bomb to run 2nd in the Travers last year so at least he has shown a sense of when to swing for the fences.
