Race Tip

FAN THE FIRE (2) built on a nice second two starts back at Keeneland (Dirt) with a win over 1m at this track (Dirt) two-and-a-half weeks ago, getting home by 0.8 lengths. Florent Geroux scored on him last time and retains the ride. Looks well placed so expect another big run. WESTERN COMMAND (6) finished 10 lengths away in seventh last time out over 5½f at Fairgrounds eight weeks ago. Steps up in distance. Among the chances. PICO D'ORO (5) returns from a lay-off after finishing off the last campaign in solid form including a narrow defeat over 6f at Oaklawn Park (Dirt) last time out. Expected to be competitive. TRUE JEDI (4) turned in a nice effort to score two runs ago but was less impressive last time out when third over 6f at Keeneland, beaten 6 lengths. In the mix.
