Prince of Wales Stakes Picks and Race Preview

The second leg of the Canadian Triple Crown goes Tuesday night from Fort Erie race track, where Sir Dudley Digges will try to take another step toward Canadian racing history.

Although he took seven starts to break his maiden, it could be said that Sir Dudley Digges never really ran a bad race prior to the Queen’s Plate, with seven finishes in the money from eight lifetime starts, and he was moving so well in the Plate Trial to get up for third, he looked like a horse sitting on a big race. Those who had faith scored at 16-1, but following the Plate win, he’s now 2-1 in the morning line for the Prince of Wales, a price that has the feel of an overlay and worth trying to beat. 

Going into the Plate, Amis Gizmo (5-2) was seen as the one to beat, and his second-place finish when he was caught in the shadow of the wire shouldn’t take too much shine off of his ability. He made a strong middle-move to get past the speedy Shakhimat to take the lead at the mile marker, but he had to emerge from the pack to do so, and he should get an easier stalking trip here behind the likely pace of longshots Leo From Heaven (20-1)  and perhaps Narrow Escape (30-1).

Although he was trying stakes company for the first time, Leavem In Malibu (5-1) garnered some interest from the betting public after consecutive open-length wins in his two previous starts. He has the talent to get into the mix here, but the question may be how he takes to the Fort Erie dirt, as all his previous efforts have been over the Woodbine tapeta surface.
