Verdict

A few of the fancied horses coming into the race have drawn high stall numbers and that leaves Bob Baffert's runners holding a strong hand. Tap It Rich made an impressive winning debut over a mile here and a high speed figure suggests he's superior to stablemate NEW YEAR'S DAY. But the latter has the proven form as he beat subsequent Grade 1 winner Bond Holder on a synthetic surface at Del Mar in August and has been working well on dirt. A short distance to the first turn over this trip makes Havana's task that much harder as the ante-post favourite is drawn out wide. The front-runner beat previous Grade 1 winner Strong Mandate, also competing from a high post, in the Champagne Stakes at Belmont last time but will have his work cut out trying to hold a good position. We Miss Artie may not be as inconvenienced by his draw given he was held up when winning the Futurity trial at Keeneland but Mexikoma recorded a much better speed figure when winning his maiden at Delaware and could go well at a price.
