Del Mar Race 6: Post: 3:00 PT
5-Sir London (5/2)
Caught a buzz saw in his debut and ran very well to be a clear second after a slow start and some traffic trouble along the rail in the opening quarter mile. He’s trained splendidly since, so we’re expecting the son of Malibu Moon to step forward in a big way and graduate from what looks to be a decent field of maiden juveniles. The S. Callaghan-trained colt retains F. Prat, and while he’ll probably will go lower than his morning line of 5/2, we’ll make him a win play and rolling exotic single.

Was given a run in his debut and then, as expected, stepped forward considerably in his next outing. Despite severe traffic trouble on the turn and again approaching the stretch, the son of Kitten’s Joy produced a serious late bid to win going away while visually much more dominant than the length-and-one-quarter margin of victory might indicate. The late-to-the-party 4-year moves up a level that should be well within his abilities but shortens to five furlongs over a course that promotes speed, so his task certainly won’t be easy. That said, the M. Glatt-trained gelding has much more upside than the others.
