PRESQUE ISLE DOWNS Race #8
Tuesday 07/01 05:20 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (SECRET SOUL) (5-2) - The probable favorite, gelding is cutting back in distance after a pair of sharp local efforts going two-turns. He has some back class, meets a weak field, and is the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #7 (Street Ballad) (3-1) - Well bred 5-year-old has been competitive in two straight here at this level and is another that will be shortening up in distance. Gelding finished a close up 3rd at this trip on May 28th and must be considered a threat.
3rd pick: #8 (Megiddo) (7-2) - Mountaineer invader has been facing tougher there in his last pair and enters off a career best figure running on the turf last out. Five-year-old by "War Front" is a factor if he can switch his latest effort to the "poly."
4th pick: #2 (Red Friday) (15-1) - Even-paced type is racing third back off almost an eight month layoff and could grab a small share at long odds with a bit of improvement.
