Despite having his form tail off during the second half of the season, Its a Bird figures to be heavily favored to defeat six rivals in the $200,000 Carl G. Rose Classic at 9 furlongs. But at or even near his best, Its a Bird towers over his six opponents in the 1 1/8-mile Carl G. Rose, having registered 107 Beyer Speed Figures on three separate occasions in 2009.Only one of the rivals - Too Many Toyz, who earned a 98 Beyer notching his third straight entry-level optional claiming victory three weeks earlier - even approaches that type of number, and he will be taking a major step up in class Saturday. Dream Maestro was runner up in last years running, though his form seems to be not quite as strong either. Pound Foolish won a nice N2X allowance race over the Calder surface but he is facing much tougher here. Imawildandcrazyguy and Hals My Hope seem to be about equal in ability, but if Its a Bird doesn't show his best, either could get a check.
