Warren Point (9/5) is a Euro/foreign invader making his U.S. debut, and a most reliable board hitter.

The numberFire data picks Classic Catch (9/2) to win with top jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr. riding for leading trainer Todd Pletcher. He should be in peak form in his third start as a challenger, adds GTS.
