Horse Number: 4

Odds: 7-2

Race 1 Comments: LITTLE BEN shuffled to last at the half, slipped out pacing :28.1 third quarter, tipped wide and rallied gamely for place. 10-year-old has raced well in all three Catskill starts and appears on edge.

Race 2 Comments: IMIDEAL HANOVER lost any chance when he didn’t leave in local debut. Speedy 8-year-old moves inside and figures to be much tougher on or near the front this time.

Race 5 Comments: In a field that is a combined 1 for 106 on the season, ROULETTE RULER has been facing Maine breds in stakes events most of the year and now ships in to Catskill’s leading barn. Appears to have the most upside in here.
