6 Carnivore(L) 1-2-3 Shepherd Delozier 123 20-1

Eskendereya was a dominant winner at the distance in Fountain of Youth and has trained sharply in the interim. Awesome Act got nice setup in Gotham; bounces today? Schoolyard Dreams fired half-mile bullet since game second in Tampa Bay Derby; dangerous.

16 Ommadon's Answer 7-x-x No Rider. O'Brien 116 12-1

So Scott, from a dam that's thrown two grass winners, switches to sod after tough-trip fourth in well-bet debut; recoups losses. Tom Kitten was third in last two and should move forward with return to grass. Thundering Roar returns to turf and gets rider upgrade; very interesting. Union Army is fresh and makes grass debut; worth a look.
