SEA COAST a close se­cond in both U.S. starts, need only re­peat ef­forts to fi­nally get back on win­ning track. CON­QUEST MIS­BE­HAVE broke slow, rushed to con­test the pace from tough po­si­tion be­tween horses early on, faded late in good show­ing com­ing off ex­tended va­ca­tion. Fig­ures to im­prove off ef­fort if away cleaner from in­side post. SAWYER run down late by ul­ti­mate win­ner while clearly best of the rest re­turn­ing to a course she’s han­dled ex­tremely well through­out her ca­reer. Hard to leave out of the equa­tion.


CON­QUEST SAND­MAN ran huge in de­feat when de­but­ing on the grass af­ter break­ing slow, rac­ing rankly, mak­ing huge middle move be­fore drop­ping tough de­ci­sion at the wire. Toss last when hav­ing lit­tle chance break­ing from post 14 go­ing 9 furs. on the main. Finds him­self poorly posted once again but should prove formidi­ble if he draws in. CANNES a well bred sort out of a mul­ti­ple G1 win­ning mare and a half to Filmbi. Gets Lasix for bow. Barn not noted to hav­ing them cranked off the bench but this one hasn’t seemed to miss a beat in the a.m. for quite some time. OUR WAY back to what ap­pears his fa­vorite sur­face while turninig back in dis­tance af­ter also be­ing com­pro­mised by turf post in main track bow.


CON­QUEST TYPHOON, the day’s best, checked briefly com­ing to the quar­ter pole while not badly beaten in the Trop­i­cal Park Derby, fin­ish­ing within a length of next out N2X main track win­ner Team Col­ors in the process. Tries al­lowance com­pany for the first time, need only trip out from the rail to best th­ese. BEST BARD and NO­TA­CATBU­TAL­LAMA look like the main com­pe­ti­tion, both hav­ing to over­come tough out­side posts to­day.


DOC­TOR MOUNTY ran evenly in well graded dash launch­ing ca­reer at 6 1/ 2 fur­longs in a field that in­cluded next out SW King Kranz. Stretches out for lo­cal bow, train­ing well for a barn whose young horses have good suc­cess with one un­der their belts. MO POWER necked by Avast Matey af­ter be­ing hung wide through­out in promis­ing de­but and an­other who should move for­ward with added dis­tance and the ex­pe­ri­ence. Log­i­cal in here. DIXIE RUN­NER was well backed at first ask­ing, hung late while fin­ish­ing on his left lead in a race which might be bet­ter than the fi­nal time would in­di­cate. Ex­pect­ing much im­prove­ment to­day.


GLID­ING BY got a very in­ter­est­ing trip to say the least mak­ing pre­ma­ture middle move be­fore hang­ing late in her 3yo de­but. Gets shaky edge in wide open stakes with more ju­di­cious han­dling. CON­QUEST BE­BOP fol­lowed big poly­track de­but with solid and game se­cond place ef­fort try­ing turf for the first time de­spite hav­ing to rally off slow pace along with pre­ferred choice. An­other one of many likely con­tenders in very con­tentious race. AMI’S MESA im­pressed launch­ing ca­reer with two straight poly­track wins at Wood­bine but el­i­gi­ble to han­dle the turf be­ing a half to G3 grass win­ner Ami’s Hol­i­day. Might be a bit of a sleeper mak­ing grass bow in this spot.


MO­HAY­MEN couldn’t have been more im­pres­sive at 2, con­tin­ues to train­ing for­wardly for 3yo bow. Fig­ures for­wardly through­out, hard to look past de­spite the short price. CON­QUEST BIG E may have the best chance of spring­ing up­set. Bounced back from fair ef­fort in the Breed­ers’ Cup with im­pres­sive al­lowance win at Churchill to close out 2yo cam­paign but yet to win on dry land. GREEN­POINTCRU­SADER an­other who moves up in the wet hav­ing cap­tured G1 Cham­pagne in im­pres­sive fash­ion over sloppy strip last fall. Gets J R up for first time to­day.


PADDYRYAN comes up taggede for the first time in the fi­nale, may have enough speed to take ad­van­tage of in­side draw, hang on to earn diploma for this tag. WHAT POWER a half to G1 SP Bat­tle­field An­gel, de­buts below pur­chase price for top con­nec­tions. Must re­spect in this spot. SO­CIAL STRANGER log­i­cal but per­haps a bit vul­ner­a­ble at short odds re­turn­ing to the grass off a big main track show­ing when dropped to this cat­e­gory for the first time, catch­ing slop on 1/ 10.
