  1. based on yesterday…any money for Moore to beat Davis in any sprint event is wasted money…22,86 converts to 22 low on mondo…unless Moore playing possum…

  2. Big showdown in Class 1 100m finals, if both reach the finals, between Kevona and Ashanti. Historically, Ashanti has not focused on 200m. I think she trains for the 100/200, she will equally competitive as Kevona.
