Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 5 
Race overview:  A very weak MSW for 3up sprinting on the main, and it’s the distance that’s key here, as it will play to #4 MAPPER (3-1) a lot more than it will to #7 Sidekick (5-2). 
Pace:  It should be hot and contested, as not only are there ore than a few who want to be involved early, but there is a slew of firsters entered too, several of which have bullet drills for their unveiling. 
Trends:  N/A 
Best Play:  #4 MAPPER (3-1): Stalked impressed on debut in a fast MSW at GP for Rusty Arnold, who rarely has them cranked, so he should be primed now, and his main rival #7 Sidekick (5-2) hasn’t started since August are sure looks like he wants longer and another turn. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single to end the early Pk5/Pk4, and in the middle Pk4 as well.
