Who will win in the Head-to-Head matchup: Cherry Wine or Collected?
The only time Cherry Wine ran on a wet track he won by nine lengths so the conditions on Saturday shouldn't be an issue. Cherry Wine is a natural closer so while others will set or press the early pace, he should finish strong and has a great chance to finish in the top 4. Collected is regarded by some as the best of the "other" speedsters, but I like Cherry Wine to finish slightly better on Saturday.
