Overall the speed figs of this pony look formidable in this contest. He should have a strong performance versus this easier field of horses. IDOL MCARTNEYVALUE - Could provide positive profits based on competitive recent speed figs with an average of 60. Is a definite contender - given the 64 speed figure from his most recent race.

# 4 ZAMIDUE 6/1

# 5 THE BIRDMAN 10/1

# 3 LITTLE MARIO 4/1

My pick for this race is ZAMIDUE. Win percentage one of the most favorable in this group of animals. The speed figure of 65 from his last race looks very strong in here. Has earned reliable Speed Figures in dirt route races in the past. THE BIRDMAN - Is hard not to look at based on Speed Figures which have been decent - 56 avg - of late. Will most likely compete quite well in the early speed battle which bodes well with this group. LITTLE MARIO - Perron has a strong 16 percent win rate with entries running at this distance and surface. Must be given consideration based on the very strong Equibase Speed Figure posted in the last outing.
