This could be a very good race for taking a shot at a price, as I doubt Cox has the M/L favorite cranked up for this one.
While the TG pattern looks very good on Alwaysmining, my concern is that he has never run his "A" number outside of Laurel.
Extrordinary Jerry is clearly the fastest horse on TG, but I noted that he ran his best number with a perfect set-up when he closed off a suicidal pace at GP last year.
While they are both certainly playable at a price, I think there is also another long shot in the race that is worth a look:
Snapper Sinclair (15/1) - He was hung out 3 wide chasing a duel in a fast pace last time out at Oaklawn. He could appreciate the turn back to a flat mile and his TG# 3 back could see him get a large piece of this race.
Also, I think that Ny Traffic could be overlooked in the Matt Winn Stakes. A pair or better of his last TG# would make him very tough.
