Maiden Special Weight, 5-1/2 furlongs, 3 yo’s and up
Possible overlays Morning line
#7 Raise the River 9/2
#8 Ribald 5/1
This is the first maiden race I have seen this year where 3-year-olds are facing older horses. Six out of the 10 runners in this race are 3-years-old, but I don’t happen to like any of them.
Both #7 Raise the River and #8 Ribald have good speed and are coming off recent layoffs. They both look better to me than the morning line favorite #10 Charlie and Chris.
So, I will bet $200 to win on both #7 Raise the River and #8 Ribald at odds of 3/1 or more.
