Timeform on Pass The Gravy

#4 Joyful Heart - Gulfstream R6 (20:43)

Joyful Heart went off too hard in front when only ninth last time but should bounce back to form ridden with a little more patience this time around. With the very fast front-running Conquer in opposition, the selection should get a good tow into the race before getting first run on the closers. Main danger Bourbon Currency ran well off a layoff last time and should move forward stretching back out in trip.

#3 January Won - Gulfstream R7 (21:15)

January Won faced some stiff tasks in Graded company after winning his maiden at Saratoga last year and looks to have been found a good spot for his comeback in this $25k claimer. Kenny McPeek's charge should get a good pace to run at and can pick up the leaders late in the day. Dizzy Sight is another returning from a break and may prove the biggest threat.

#2 Pass The Gravy - Gulfstream R11 (23:17)

Pass The Gravy hasn't been seen for 558 days but hails from a barn that has exceptional numbers with horses returning from long layoffs. The selection plunges in class and could simply be too good for this field if retaining even a portion of his ability. French Quarter won here last time and looks the obvious one if Pass The Gravy fails to deliver.
