10 Gold Vendetta(L) Davis 113 20-1

1a King David J(L) Napravnik 118 8-1

Strummer is riding an improving line on the numbers and should be set for peak effort in third start of form cycle. Fiddlers Patriot exits top-figured score in last; must sidestep bounce. King David J was a terror on this surface last winter; worth long look.

Laus Deo displayed potent stretch punch when breaking maiden at Philly Park last time and fire half-mile bullet on Tuesday; more to come.
