SUPER BIRD finished with a wet sail when only narrowly losing out at this track last month and this expensive purchase should be able to resume winning ways sooner rather than later. Great Lite turned in an improved showing when second here recently and is feared most ahead of Run For Zach, who is capable of much better than he has shown of late.
