AMERICAN CURRENCY is unexposed and appears on an upward curve. He's expected to build on his Del Mar maiden claimer victory last time and notch a double. Walk On Water and Get Em Up Scout complete the shortlist.

Verdict

Tasunke Witco makes some appeal on his Del Mar victory on his penultimate outing but preference is for ROMAN TIZZY, who makes stronger appeal on his recent second at the same venue. El Super could also feasibly finish on the premises.
