8 Executive Search(L) 1-4-6 Serpa Jacobson 118 10-1

Clemens fell victim to sizzling splits in last and now makes first start since reclaimed by Galluscio; sitting on breakthrough effort. Yes It's The Truth drops to lifetime low for Tony Dutrow; more than good enough on 'A' game. Noble King's speed gives him a puncher's chance; don't ignore.

Keep Thinking was dq'd from top spot in last and consistently logs fast figures; big-time contender. R J Hope displayed late turn of foot in debut this past fall and is training consistently for return.
