Churchill Downs Race 10 – Post time: 5:26 ET
7-Aloha West (8-1)
This rapidly developing 4-year-old colt just crushed a softer field over this track and distance when drawing away in powerful fashion by five lengths in a fast, highly-rated and visually pleasing performance, one that makes him dangerous right back despite the class hike into listed stakes company. Drawn comfortably outside and with the ideal late-running style for this extended sprint distance, the son of Hard Spun shows a recent bullet drill (47 seconds, fastest of 31) to give strong indication that another forward move is lightly. There’s good wagering value in the win pool and in rolling exotic play at or near his morning line of 8-1.

5-Flash Magic (3-1)
Showed plenty of promise in a trio of maiden races in California last year when trained by B. Baffert, including a sharp runner-up effort behind future multiple Grade-1 winner Princess Noor in her debut, so if she returns as well as she left for new trainer S. Asmussen she’ll be hard to beat in this extended sprint for maiden fillies and mares. The works, including a bullet gate work in 46 2/5 seconds (fastest of 141 for the distance) two weeks ago should have fit and ready, and as a first-time Lasix user and removing blinkers the daughter of Pioneerof the Nile looks capable of producing a winning late kick. At 3-1 on the morning line, we’ll make her an aggressive play in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics.
