Work All Week (6/5) will be making his six year-old debut and his first appearance since becoming a Breeders’ Cup winner November 1 at Santa Anita. The gelded son of City Zip has won 12 of 15 career starts including 5 of 6 in 2014, but will need to be sharp for his return against a capable field. If works are any indication, the Roger Brueggemann trainee is picking up where he left off, showing a steady stream of quick drills at the Churchill Downs Training center dating back to April 19. Brueggemann connects at a 14% clip with runners returning from layoffs greater than 180 days.
Alsvid live and dangerous
Alsvid (3/1) looks to be the main danger to upset the champion’s bid for a winning return. Trained by Chris Hartman, Alsvid captured the Grade 3 Count Fleet Sprint April 9 at Oaklawn in his last start. The six year-old gelded son of Officer appears to be in career-best form as he prepares to make his first start at Churchill Downs.
Can't dismiss the gentleman
Gentleman’s Bet (7/2) has run poorly in his last two starts, finishing last in the Count Fleet and fourth, beaten nine lengths in the Grade 2 Churchill Downs Stakes May 2. The speedy Ron Moquett trainee is dangerous if he can return to form. Gentleman’s Bet is one for two at Churchill and owns the fastest Beyer Speed Figures of any starter in the field.
