Nick Shiambouros returns with his best bets from Cigar Mile day at Aqueduct and the Championship meeting at Gulfstream...
"He was checked for racing room at the entrance to the straight, but finished strongly and was not beaten all that far"
Following Sea upset minded
Following Sea should make his presence felt in this mouthwatering Grade 1 on the main track.
This talented performer finished third to Aloha West in the Breeders' Cup Sprint at Del Mar last month. He was checked for racing room at the entrance to the straight, but finished strongly and was not beaten all that far.
I would not consider him unlucky, but would have made things interesting with a clear run. I think he is sitting on a big effort and should be backed around his Morning Line price of 6.05/1.
Stablemate Americanrevolution is the favourite at 4.1 on the exchange. He demolished a field of NY breds at Belmont Park last month and is an exciting prospect. This is his toughest assignment to date but is still improving. Trainer Todd Pletcher holds him in high regard and is not dismissed lightly.
Tune In to take Crown Jewel
Tune In should go close in this Stakes race on the main track.
This gelding beat Ludington in great style in an allowance race over this course last month. He made most of the running and found plenty for pressure to win going away. This was a super effort and this five time course winner should have more to offer. This valuable race is for horses who have started for a claiming price of $35K or less. He is suited by the conditions of the race and should be backed around 4.03/1 on the exchange.
Favourite Girolamo's Attack is the main danger. He has won a couple of restricted handicaps and comes in to this race in fine form.
