Analysis:His latest victory was a nice step forward for Battalion Runner off of his impressive maiden win. However, I moved him down for 6 to 11 because it wasn’t overly impressive to me, and I believe he’ll have to pick it up a bit to move up to the next level successfully. Still with Pletcher on his side he’s worth a serious look.
