MR. ONLINE has won three straight races and five of his last eight and was second in the Grade 1 Nearctic four starts back, but this race came up with a lot of speed and the gelded son of Silent Name must avoid an early duel. GUYS REWARD was an upset winner over the odds-on favorite SALTO in the Grade 3 Tampa Bay in Hillsborough and is worth a bet to make it two straight at long odds from off the pace. GUYS REWARD is a Grade 2 winner with earnings of over $650,000. SALTO gets a reprieve for his loss to GUYS REWARD and projects for a good trip stalking the early leaders. UNBRIDLED OCEAN and ABTAAL are two long shots from solid stables who both will be doing their best running late. UNBRIDLED OCEAN was sixth in a Group 3 in Dubai last year while ABTAAL won a Group 3 in France and was good enough to finish eighth of eighteen in the Group 1 Two Thousand Guineas behind Camelot in 2012. This race has huge payouts written all over it. The trifecta and superfecta wager will be huge.
