Anybody take a look at this race yet?  This is the 3rd race in the Japan Road to the Kentucky Derby.  (This is the race Epicharis won.)

Will another Sunday Silence be coming our way?

I took a peek at it & with 16 entered, it's wide open, IMO.  The colt who won the Cattleya Sho at 2 is in - Ruggero.  One who won the Zen-Nippon late last year & trained by the same trainer who trained Epicharis is out - Le Vent Se Leve.

I think Great Time looks interesting.  Highly regarded every time out & never worst than 2nd (4-2-2-0), picks up the services of Ryan Moore & appears set to go off at around 6 or 7 to 1, stepping up.

Rapier Wit looks like the favorite at 2/1.  There are some huge,huge prices in here.

It's a 30 point race.
