Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 5 
Race overview:  A full field of 30k N2L sprinters, with several who are in with winning chances, though #8 SONO GRATO (8-1) offers plenty of value off a troubled trip. 
Pace:  It should be hot and contested, as several here want to motor early, which means a stalking gear seems imperative. 
Trends:  Winners are continuing to come from everywhere, with no noticeable biases, both in terms of path and running style. 
Best Play:  #8 SONO GRATO (8-1): Stalker will like the pace and ran well at the level last time, with far from a fair go of it after a slow start and extremely wide bid on the far turn. 
Bet Types:    WPS bet and a must-use to end the early Pk5/Pk4, and to kick off the middle Pk5 as well.
