Analysis: Twenty Gauge is coming off a good runner up finish at Kentucky Downs in his turf debut, beaten 3 3/4 lengths by Lawn Ranger, who came back to win the Bourbon (G3) in his next outing on Oct. 5 here.The Romans trainee is by FuPeg out of a Fit to Fight mare that has dropped two other foals to race including a turf winner. Another move forward makes this guy the one to beat here.
Majestico is coming out of the Bourbon where he ran well in a fourth place finish, beaten 1 3/4 lengths at 16-1. The colt was a good third in his debut at the Spa going 5 1/2 furlongs and when a game second on the stretch out in his second career start at Churchill Downs. He is a logical threat here dropping back in with maidens.
