Overall View

Tiny Tina is at a great Morning Line price for the opener in California. Flavien Prat is up and he is winning 29% of his races at the meet. Flavien has also won, (as it seems every time), a ton of races sprinting down the hill. Tiny Tina is trained by Phil D’Amato who is winning 25% of his races at the meet and 17% of his races moving horses from routes to sprints. The heavy ML favorite is Classy Atlantic. Classy Atlantic is the speed of the race and Mark Glatt trains. Glatt is winning 15% of his races at the meet. Last time out Classy Atlantic ran a decent fifth at the mile distance, the cut back in distance should help the horse improve but there is other speed on the rail. That speed is Tapitha Bonita who is going to make its second start at the distance. The horse ran in third her first start at the distance running down the hill, and hopefully the two speed horses will duel each other to defeat to help the closers win the race.

Picks:4-5-3-6
