9 Holy Invader(L) 115 Franco 1-3-3 Toscano, Jr 5-1

Modern Child tallied solid final fraction when winning last and fired half-mile bullet on inner strip on Wednesday. Romancing the Gold gets class relief, is speedy and owns three wins on winterized oval; very playable. Pontus also is fleet-footed and makes peak start of form cycle; dangerous. Zivo consistently logs fast figures; dangerous. Pass the Tap was unjustly placed first after phantom foul on Sunday, but owns swift numbers and must be factored into the mix.

Kid Blast tallied career best final fraction when a change-of-pace second last out; more to come. The Big Deluxe notched swift pace and final figures when winning last; very dangerous. Western Tryst makes first start since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez and would be aided by hot fractions.

Stellerite is 1-for-1 on the inner strip and now makes first start since claimed by Bruce Levine. Missed Count owns fast final figures and makes first start for David Jacobson; big-time player. My Cousin Zinny owns speed and sharp current condition; must factor into the mix if able to escape AE list. Blue Ballerina was second in last and is right in the thick of this on 'A' game.
