The Rebel

Derby dreams abound for these 11 going postward in the G2 Rebel Stakes ~~ Enjoy our analysis:

1-Title Ready   2/5 lifetime ~ won his first try at OP earning a 94 bris figure which is his career high  ~ blinkers were on for the first time ~ trained by Steve Asmussen ~ will be on or near the lead ~ tough one to figure out in here

2-Curlin’s Honor  2/2 lifetime both wins by a neck ~ hasn’t gone farther than 6f ~ has been odds on both starts ~ will be moving late

3-Solomini  has 1 win in 4 lifetime races was DQ’d in the G1 Los Al Cash Call Futurity earning him a 101 bris figure which was his last start 98 days ago ~ has been training very well coming into this race ~ will not be our top pick but will be used underneath

4-Magnum Moon  2/2 lifetime won stretching out last race at Tam earning a 90 bris figure ~ big work 3/10 ~  has plenty of upside & will be our top choice

5-Higher Power   2/3 lifetime with 1 win at OP which was his last start earning a 85 bris figure ~ both of his wins were at 1 mile ~ another one in here who could improve

6-Pryor   1/4 lifetime he just broke his maiden last start earning a 94 bris figure at OP ~ trained by Ron Moquett this is a big class jump & I just don’t see him competing well today

7-Sporting Chance  2/4 lifetime ~ was bumped a bit in the Southwest but he wasn’t really threatening at that point of the race ~ trained by D Wayne ~ he did win the G1 Hopeful at Saratoga last year ~ has some buzz surrounding him ~ could be around for a piece of the pie will be used underneath

8-High North  1/5 lifetime ~ ran a non threatening 5th in the Risen Star ~ he seems out of his league with this group

9-Zing Zang   1/5 lifetime ~ both of his starts this year have been less than stellar ~ Steve Asmussen trains ~ has the looks of one in over his head

10-Combatant  1/5 lifetime ~ the 3rd Steve Asmussen trainee in the race ~ he has three consecutive 2nd place finishes ~ his career best bris figure is 95 which was earned in the Smarty Jones at OP ~ not sure if this guy will ever put it all together but is a must use underneath

11-Bode’s Maker  1/9 lifetime ~ has raced 4 times at OP & his best placing was 3rd ~ when he does run well he’s coming late ~ we will use him on the bottom of our tri’s & supers

Top pick:  4-Magnum Moon  W/P   exacta: 4/1,2,7,10     triple:  4/1,2,7,10/1,2,3,7,10,11   superfecta:  4/1,2,7,10/1,2,3,7,10,11/1,2,3,7,10,11

Saver:  exacta:  1/2,4,7,10   triple:  1/2,4,7,10/2,3,4,7,10,11
