Turn 4 notes:

A lot of hot brakes after all the 180 plots last turn

Peeples brakes hard to 100 shedding two wear through the 60 and onto the next racing line
Schultz slows safely to 120 spending two wear in the 80s and starting the line behind the leader
Rund stands on the brakes for 100 and is one wear lighter on the Les Combes line

Bernhardt also tests the binders and follows onto the line behind Rund
Benham at 120 moves to the outside of the pink machine
Baker closes on the pack at 180

Next deadline: Turn 5 due Monday, June 17 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC
