Wednesday's opener is a modest $50,000 maiden claimer that might be best left alone. #5 Swiss Currency, #3 Big Bad Boo and #1 Sky’squickscore all exit straight maiden events but none have done enough to inspire confidence even at this level. Of the three, Swiss Currency may have the most upside. #6 Good Turn is a first timer with a couple of bullet works to his credit but hasn’t really impressed the private clockers. And #4 Swiss Emperor has speed breeding and solid connections but really hasn’t shown much gate zip in the morning. Might be best to go with the usher’s tip in this one.
