Daddy Nose Best (Eclipse Sportswire)
Daddy Nose Best appears to be a classic buddy-up horse. Running with another horse is a comfort zone for him. You can see his urgency and stress assuage when he gets a buddy next to him who is roughly equal in physical ability.
Daddy Nose Best won his last two races, but those were much weaker horses than he is going to face in here, and even then he did not put those horses away powerfully. I don’t see any urgency to release and run past horses.
