PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  5/4/24 
Featured track  Churchill Downs   
Race number  10 
Race overview  A wildly deep and contentious renewal of the G1 Churchill Downs for 4up going 7Fs on the main track. 
Pace  For a 7F G1 sprint there’s not a ton of it on paper, but there’s also a full field, so the pace should develop, though coming from the back and winning might be a big ask, and there are more than a few of those types here. 
Trends  It was just a few days early in the week, but the main track played fair, which is noteworthy, as it can tend to be very fast and potentially speed-favoring as Derby Week, and especially Friday and Saturday, draw in. 
Best Play  #4 MR. WIRELESS (6-1): Perceived two-turn specialist came back in a 6F sprint at FG and rolled, with a monster figure too, so adding another furlong should only help, and while this is a deep and competitive field, there are no stars, and he seems to be in a great spot off that encouraging comeback. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet, and single in ALL horizontal exotics as well.
