PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  6/4/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 3 
Race overview:  A deep and competitive 16k claimer sprinting on the main for older. 
Pace:  It looks hot and contested—and a few of the favorites may get caught up in it—so taking someone with a stalking style appears a prudent approach. 
Trends:  The main track played a bit more on the fair side last week, as winners were coming from everywhere, though tactical speed (at the very least) is always preferred.  
Best Play:  #5 ALL EYES WEST (9-2): Class dropper didn’t make a dent for 40k off the Cano claim and now drops, but this is a crafty barn, and this veteran should sit a dream trip just off the pace. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well.
