Battaglia’s Picks 6-4-10-7 Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐

#6 Drake’s Passage-won three in a row before missing by just ½ length last out against open company allowance runners. He is back in with New York breds and looks to start a new win streak.

#4 Olympic Dreams-is making his third start back off a 3 month layoff, has won 2 of 4 with a third here and has won 2 of 3 at this distance.

#10 Straight Arrow-drew off to win by 9 last out while earning a triple digit speed figure. He should like this distance and should be in the payoffs.

#7 Sheriff Bianco-has been in the money in 11 of 12 over this track, is coming off the 2nd fastest of 92 others work and should be a decent price.
