Verdict

CRYSTAL KING represents a top yard who do well with their four-year-old's and he can get his season off to the perfect start with a victory in this eight runner handicap. Sleeping Lion was twice a winner last season and he can finish runner-up on his seasonal reappearance while third place can go to Lexington Law who is one of two representatives for his trainer.
  1. Crystal King
  2. Sleeping Lion
  3. Lexington Law
