Taku in Friday's fourth race look's about as honest as they come, handled NW of two in his last and I've seen nothing in his moves that say he' just a fast closing sprinter. Pedigree-wise, the numbers looks solid for a two turn trip. He has one to beat in here and I like his chances.


He's All Heart comes back Saturday after a sparkling outing, was getting a little short late but it was to be expected after just the lone sprint prep. Conditions of the race fit very nicely. The chance of rain simply enhances his chances.
