Longshot Players: You might want to take a look at No. 2 Zozos (8-1):
This is a horse with tactical speed who can get himself in a great spot to play a spoiler today.Zozos broke his maiden very impressively and in his most recent against winners when he sat off speed and drew off to win by 10 1/4 lengths.
It will be hard to upset Epicenter in this one but the price will be short and you can shot around for a value play as the one mentioned above.
