Horse of the Night

BCS CHIEF (2ND) : Hard to argue with his consistency this season as hes hit the board in seven of tries. Hes fresh off a big second place finish that came from the second tier so Im not really worried about him drawing the outside in this short field. Hes also capable of flashing good speed as he showed in those efforts two and three starts back so that will give his pilot plenty of options. Hes in top shape right now and it should pay off with a victory over this group.

Keep an Eye On These

WOLF CREEK PEGASUS (4TH) : Showed good speed in a nice second place finish here last week. Hes knocked at the door in a couple of his recent efforts and his work should be rewarded here this evening.
TOGETHERFOREVER (7TH) : Mare handled the class hike to this level last week and came up with another big victory. Shes never been better as she goes for win #10 on this season and with the inside post shes going to be the one to catch.
THEDAYYOUHAVEMADE (10TH) : Red-hot mare is gunning for her fourth straight victory here. She leaves from the second tier so shell have to work her way to the front but if she can avoid the early traffic shes going to be tough to collar.


Backstretch Info

MASTER OF DESIRE (5TH) : Beaten favorite chased a tough winner while finishing a close up third in his last start. He drops in class tonight and with the inside draw he certainly appears to be well placed in here. He seems to like the half-mile oval here at Maywood posting a win, a second and two thirds in his last four starts on this surface. He should be in line for the perfect ground saving journey this evening and that will make him very tough to stop.
