ALFIE SOLOMONS (Kantharos), previously entered in a July 24 turf sprint at Saratoga that he later scratched out of, is back in the entries and slated to make his career bow in this closing-day spot at Kentucky Downs. The chestnut, bought for $285,000 last year at Keeneland September, is a full-brother to MGISW and dual-surface star World of Trouble. Owned by Andrew Farm and For the People Racing and trained by Wesley Ward, he missed nearly a month on the worktab after his scratch, but has returned with three sharp breezes at Keeneland, capped by a five-furlong move in :59 4/5 (2/6) Sept. 6. Ward has also entered Invader (War Front), who looks to make amends after running sixth as the favorite in his career bow July 6 at Belmont. Racing for Grandview Equine and Cheyenne Stables, the $500,000 KEESEP buy also drilled five furlongs Sept. 6 in Lexington and earned the bullet, going in :59 2/5 (1/6). The bay is out of GSW/G1SP Say (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), making him a full-brother to GISW Fog of War and SW Naval Intelligence. —@JBiancaTDN TJCIS PPs
