MONTCALM (2) will be tighter following 2 runs back from a break, the latest here last week when well covered behind MUCHO MACHO MAN. Not suited off gate 6 in that, he moves to a tight alley here and can look to fire out to the front and controlling the tempo will take some stopping.
MUCHO MACHO MAN (3) is the king of the triangle at present and aims up for 6 wins in a row. He pressed forward from gate 4 last week and forced his way to the front and once in control it was never in doubt. The lead is likely not there this time which might hurt but he can’t be discounted.
SELECTIONS: MONTCALM (2), MUCHO MACHO MAN (3), PLAYNSERIOUS (1), SAMS A CHAMP (4)
