Artemis Agrotera visually and numerically impressed when winning debut by 11 lengths; rates slight edge based on early speed advantage.

15Bernardo(L)118Ortiz1-3-4Toscano, Jr3-1

Mike and Rob overcame wide trip and soft fractions when a clear-cut winner in last; more to come. Northern Tripp packs powerful late wallop and should be aided by longer trip and probable pace dynamics. Orino is speedy and will prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Grahamandwithers is another front-runner that must be factored into the mix. On dirt: Petrocelli.
