Best Bet: 9 Endowed Clement doing well with 2yo's on debut.

No Chalk:  8 Royne the mad scientist hooks up with JR at 9/2 and the presence of the 1  and 1A will ensure value on this horse.


Best Bet: 11 King James -- J Ortiz tries to take down WW and Irad on 7 Lyrical Poet

No Chalk: 2 Cousin Andrew finished right behind King James last out when trying turf first time.

Best Bet: 7 Spun and Won comes off a winning effort at Parx and even though the Bensalem shippers have not done well here -- I think 2 Cost Basis does not offer value
