Some of my thoughts:

I also agree that The pattern of Happy Saver is a positive one and a new top would not surprise me. Since his trainer is TAP and his 4 y/o campaign started as well as one could hope for, what's not to like? I assume TAP has some other trainees that he could have entered and chose this guy. The only oddity, for me, is the late start to his career and there are many potential inconsequential reasons for that. Add the top rider. My Top pick.

With regard to Mystic Guide, I am leery of trainer Stidman. wasn't he down and out a couple of years ago. Wasn't there a cloud of suspicion over him for PED's at one point? TG says ground loss should not be a concern and that's probably true but this one is habitually wide. One could consider his race two back as being the end of the development road and his next race c/b a collapse or a pause in a downward spiral. It seems his likely price doesn't support any doubts and I have some.

As for value, I have no argument with Max Player, however, I'd look to the second Pletcher trainee (Morretti - who gets weight) first, then the mid-Atlantic iron horse Informative. Because I am one of the 1%r's who thinks he could duplicate the ridiculous 0 he ran last out?

Confident one of the TAP entrants will win.

Airing on Fox is curious who will the announcers be?
