-Lookin At Lucky, even thought he missed the Travers due to an injury, takes a big cut in price from 7/1 to 9/2.  He is now the solid #3 choice behind Zenyatta and Blame.  

-Rachel Alexandra, who is probably no better than 10/1 to even start in the Classic, saw her odds go from 5/1 to 12/1.  Her future odds for the Ladies' Classic are currently 4/1, which is the third choice behind Blind Luck (2/1) and Devil May Care (7/2).  That may be where the value is for Rachel right now as I don't know that she would be the third choice on race day at a mile and a eighth against Blind Luck and Devil May Care.  And whatever struggles she had during the 2010 season, she's still an awfully good filly, especially at distances shorter than a mile and a quarter.

-Blame drops a tick to 5/1.  His next start should be in the Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont Park.

-Quality Road sees his odds hold at 4/1.  Despite what I thought was a so-so effort in the Woodward I doubt we'll see his odds get much higher than 5/1 or 6/1.

-Fly Down is starting to take some action as his odds are cut in half from 30/1 to 15/1.

-Rip Van Winkle, winner of the Group 1 Juddmonte at York, pops in at 16/1.

-Travers winner Afleet Express, ingored in the Classic odds for several weeks, gets into the mix at 18/1.

-Dublin is holding steady at 20/1.  Is this horse even in training anymore?

-Ice Box, Super Saver and First Dude all drift into higher odds and for good reason; none of them have accomplished a thing this summer.  All three ran well at Churchill in the Derby but at this point they are so far off form (especially Ice Box and Super Saver) that it's hard to envision them wining the Classic.  First Dude has been the most consistent of the three but I can't argue with 30/1 on him right now.
