Fountain of Youth
Chalk: Buddy's Saint, if he can run back to Nashua Beyer speed figure of 101, he'll be tough. Although, coming back from a 20-point Beyer drop and three month layoff I'm willing to take a stand against.
Who I'll cheer for: Jackson Bend, underrated, suspect breeding but his trainer, Nick Zito knows how to get three-year-olds ready.
Upset possibility: Aikenite gets his regular rider back, Alan Garcia, and will have a pace to run into, but he must overcome the track basis against such moves.
Chalk: Drosselmeyer's connections make him the likely favorite: Winstar, Mott, Desormeaux, but who knows how good this colt is coming off a decent allowance win at Gulfstream?
Who I'll cheer for: Ron the Greek, most likely second choice. It's hard to route against Triple Crown possibilities coming out of Remenington, Hoosier and Delta.
Upset possibility: Discreetly Mine an improving colt by Mineshaft second off layoff for Todd Pletcher will give you a good ride at 5-1 or better.
Chalk: Conveyance gets the lead from far outside but will have his hands full with Dryfly to his inside.
Who I'll cheer for: I love Dublin's Spa form - convincing maiden win and Hopeful Stakes win - which he is likely to return to following minor surgery. Watch out Lukas is back!
Upset possibility: Cardiff Giant, one of the other Left Coast horses in town may put it all together on dirt. Then again, maybe not...
