Beerkeg’s Picks

Holeshot: GENERAL CROOK - QUIST AGAINSTLIGHT and MANDES SPIRIT are the only two to go wire-to-wire in the field, however both appear to be cases of them having to take the lead in a small field when the field lacked a true front runner.   GENERAL CROOK has stalked just off the pace in his starts so far, with this field lacking a front runner by choice my bet is on GENERAL CROOK to shoot out of the gates to the lead.

Favourites: ZERO POINT ZERO (9/2) and GENERAL CROOK (7/1) – Both of this fields ‘Beerkeg Picks’ share similar career paths, having come from just off the pace out of the gates to take the lead early into the stretch and pull ahead to safe leads to open their career with maiden victories.  Both were followed up with successful stakes debuts in their second races finishing first and second respectively, while also posting significant speed figure jumps into the upper mid 80′s.  GENERAL CROOK  will likely look to stalk behind the leaders and make his push to the lead around the 3.5-4 furlong point of the race, and if successful will then need to fight off the closers down the stretch.  Meanwhile ZERO POINT ZERO  has emerged as a deep closer so far, and will likely conserve energy out of the gates by positioning himself at the back of the pack waiting to make his push down the stretch in hopes of pushing past the leaders by the wire.

Although ZERO POINT ZERO has the highest speed figure of the two and comes in as the favourite based off the morning lines, my pick to come out on top will be GENERAL CROOK who is looking to make it 3 for 3 in his career.

Wildcard: SUPERDOG BONES (18/1) - SUPERDOG BONES  has managed to finish in the top 3 in all five career starts, and is coming off a big bump in speed in his last race.  Although he’s not a favourite, with a little luck and another bump up in speed he could be able to keep up his streak of finishing in the money.  For those looking for a big payday, SUPERDOG BONES is my wildcard pick.
