Prayer for Relief (30-1)

Here's what we had to say about him prior to his last race, the Woodward Stakes:

The oldest runner in the field at six, Prayer for Relief has career earnings of $1.85-million, the highest in the field. He has gone off at 48-1 and 25-1 odds in his last two starts and while he did finish fourth and third, which could be considered “out-running” his odds, neither race was impressive from a Pace Figure perspective. His most recent final figure of 75.2 was regression off a 76.9 effort on July 5. He showed a consistent ability to run a CPT (Cyclical Pace Top, which is when an older horse runs his fastest 4f figure as compared with the 10 previous races while putting in a solid final figure). This pattern should have shown his last race on Aug. 2, but instead he regressed.

His Woodward figure of 75/69.3 was a slight improvement and more of a surprise than not. It looks to be a foundational final figure and one you would expect him to stay above.

The Play: Mega-Longshot – His draw, which is deep down and inside, at 1 ¼ miles with no speed and a long run into the turn smells trouble. Sure to be 40-1 or higher, he should be a consideration for fourth if playing superfectas.

The Pattern Guide highlights Form Cycle Patterns, a series of 12 symbols/abbreviations, each with its own definition. These patterns are the easiest and most effective way to evaluate what we can expect from a horse's future performance and expected form cycle.
