Brethren bandwagon expands, Anthony's Cross and Silver Medallion shock out West, Derby Trail loses a big one

So the bandwagon is about to get bigger for Brethren, but who exactly did he beat? Plus only an 83 Beyer fig?//Anthony’s Cross surprises the Robert Lewis while Tapizar looks to be too much of a headcase//Silver Medallion shocks El Camino and gives Asmussen redemption, but I still can’t get excited about that Tapeta surface//Boys at Tosconova off the trail.  Odd that they still don’t really know why//Lots of works including a bullet by Santiva.
