Free Betting Pick
Threefiftyseven looks really good coming into this race. According to his trainer, he is in perfect order. However, he will have to get past stablemate British Royalty.
One of Threefiftyseven’s advantages over British Royalty is that the latter has only raced in one outing. On the other hand, Threefiftyseven has finished on-the-board in all four of his career starts.
