6 Outlaw Cody Z(L) 113 Coa 1-2-4 Morrison 12-1

Scenic Gulch was compromised by soft fractions when second to a tons-the-best winner in last; rates close call. File Gumbo has finished second in last three starts; continues trend? Mrs. Calabash gets class relief and should be favorably placed in field that's light on speed.

7 Hooked Forever(L) 120 Castro 5-4-3 Ryerson 6-1

Beat of the Drum drops and adds blinkers for potent second-out stable. Thnxtomyuncle gets rider upgrade and fired 3-furlong bullet since late-running second in debut; very dangerous. Fierce Face failed to fire on wet surface last time but could rebound on dry land. Hyman Roth debuts for Mike Hushion; could be the goods.
