#6 DEEP CANYON had the lead up until the final strides of his last race, under these conditions a few weeks back. That was his first start since August, so he could very well come back stronger and more fit with that effort under his belt. The morning line favorite is especially susceptible having been off since January. It is not unusual to see precocious horses that don’t come back quite as dominant simply because others of their generation mature and have caught up by this point. We will try to hook up our top pick with a few longshots in the exacta pool and hope that Mad Flatter isn’t at his best or that his best isn’t enough.
