After failing to make it past day one in last week’s Let 8 Ride, I’m back at it again this week with a fresh approach and some help from the weather since the off-the-turf nature of the race scratched the field down to 7 from 12.

#12 Hollywood Script is the top selection here dropping in class off an off-the-turf for these same connections second off the claim. Moving inside from post 12 to post 7 in this one-turn mile should help Hollywood Script clear comfortably and make all to win the nightcap and send us to Friday.

Those who want an alternative might look to #9 Eternal Rules, who did very little running last out on dirt at Indiana Downs, but now he returns to Arlington Polytrack, which generated a win two back. He’s also shown ability to be near or off the pace, and with E.T. Baird picking up the mount expect him to be more forwardly placed and be most in position to win if Hollywood Script falters.
