EVANGELINE DOWNS Race #3

Top pick: #12 (CORNERS AFLEET) (10-1) - Longshot had no chance last out after he was bounced around soon after the break. He had shown good early speed in his previous outing and draws a good post and has blinkers added.
2nd pick: #10 (Earl and Vinegar) (6-1) - Speedy gelding has run well in two straight at this tag and trip and last out checked in third in a solid effort. In a capable barn (Frank Leggio) and 4-year-old is win candidate this evening.
3rd pick: #11 (Coded Sugar Cane) (6-1) - He chased and tired late racing here at this tag going 6.5-furlongs on May 23rd. Improving and this home-bred can factor at a square price.
4th pick: #7 (Beau Gator) (10-1) - Racing first off a 15 month layoff on May 28th he rallied to finish 4th of 12, beaten three lengths in a contest he probably needed. He's worked since and is a threat if he avoids a possible bounce.
5th pick: #4 (Cotile's Rose ) (7-2) - Lightly-raced, he finished second here at this level and distance on May 7th, then returned a month later and had a troubled trip. Speed/stalker must be left in the mix.
