Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 8 
Race overview:  A competitive N1X for 3up going 6Fs on the main. 
Pace:  The pace seems hot and competitive, as several want to motor early, especially because several of them drew wide too.  
Trends:  There’s been just four racing days, but overall, the main track has been on the fair side, with winners able to come from everywhere. 
Best Play:  #3 Mullikan (5-2): Expected stalker had a rough trip last time when he blew the break then rushed up before predictably tiring late, so with an alert beginning today he should trip out beautifully off all the speed. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
