Of the Baffert entries my choice w/b Nero. Asmussen's Copper Bullet is interesting but I need to see the post time price. The colt is as likely to back up off his recent top, imho. as well as pair-up.
Still Having Fun has proven to be a solid sprinter and fit. I don't expect a bounce and think that one is the most likely to run a race that hits the board. He also should be an overlay shipping in from MVR. The othe MVR shipper BOBBY’S WICKED ONE Should also be a bettable price.
As good as trainer McCarthy was to me @ the Breeders Cup his young filly Vibrance did not comeback with a good race. Axelrod's running style makes me doubt him @ 7F even more than I did Bravazo (whoops on that one). But trainer MM did win last year.
Apparently others are thinking Baffert is gettable in this years rendition of the Malibu. I guess the success of Mind Your Biscuits last year and Runhappy the year before proves the West Coasters are beatable at home.
Many terrific race hourses have a Malibu win on their resume. A terrific betting race McKinzie has the most celebrity I suppose but who was the last Baffert Trainee you remember bouncing back after a really poor race maybe Game on Dude once. Lastly Hollendorfer is displaying confidence in Kanthaka who is arguably a jump up candidate.
Bottom line I like half a dozen of them.
