Beerkeg’s Picks

Holeshot: TENPOINT SPOKEN – This field lacks a true front runner, however I would project TENPOINT SPOKEN to emerge as the pace setter.  He prefers to stick within two lengths of the lead, but has set the pace when needed.

Favourite: TEXAS HAMMER (3/2) - TEXAS HAMMER is a heavy favourite having been victorious in her past four starts, three of which were at the Local Stakes class.  TEXAS HAMMER prefers sitting off the pack out of the gates and pushing into the lead as she comes down the stretch.

Wildcard: UNCLE BROADWAY (7/1) - UNCLE BROADWAY has faced off against TEXAS HAMMER in his only ever Stakes race back in November  2018 running this same distance.  Both horses have a very similar racing style, which was seen at that race when UNCLE BROADWAY tailed TEXAS HAMMER the entire race finishing 1-2, with TEXAS HAMMER pulling ahead down the final stretch.  UNCLE BROADWAY was only 3yo at that time, and will hope 8 more months of training can make up the gap.
