Justintimeforwine is the only one of these with course experience but Gary Contessa's youngster will need to show plenty of improvement to score. Therefore, it may be best siding with newcomer BIG'S GRAY DAY, who did an encouraging piece of homework recently to set him up nicely for this. 40,000-dollar buy Beyond Gone is another debutant to consider.
