Presque Isle Race 7 | 7: 55 pm ET Claiming (7.5) for 3&up going 6f (A)

6-Fort Morgan  This 5 yo gelding has placed in 11 of his 20 career starts while winning only 1 of those. In his last start, he was away very slow but was patiently handled and gained well late to finish 3rd. The drop down in distance may help and a better break from the gate will have this horse prominent at the wire. Adds jockey Eddie Dominguez

5-High Intense  This 3 yo colt will be making his first start for the new connections. He was claimed last time out at Delaware Park, where he went quickly to the front to set the pace and went under a hard drive to hold on for the win. He will be making his first start on the synthetic surface and adds jockey Antonio Gallardo

3-Dixie Band Man  This 6 yo gelding has been in very good form. He has hit the board in 6 of his last 7 starts. In his last start, he was well placed and rallied 3 wide to get up for 2nd. Adds jockey Angel Quinones

Picks: 3 - 5 - 6

Long shot play:  10-Walk A Mile

Good luck and have fun!
