As much as an Arrogate fangirl that I am, I'm 100% certain this horse is a lock for the Classic. I think the only thing that might beat him is a bad start or worse.

Two things worry me about Gunner in the Classic - West Coast and a muddy track.

Has he run bad in the mud?
I always think smaller horses with "goat feet" do well in mud because they have less surface area to suction!

Haskell 2016 and Jockey Club Stakes 2015. True, he was younger, but still it worries me. Rain is predicted BCC day.

I wouldn't worry too much about rain just yet, we're a week out. It wouldn't take much for things to change between now and then.

You can't even trust the forecast for tomorrow, let alone a week out. :D
