Sunday April 11, 2021

Race 1

3) gets big post relief and I’ll take the value here

7) likely favorite after solid effort. Must play again

4) may need a start but is fast enough if ready

RACE 2

4) couldn’t catch a tough winner last time. More value

3) best on the lead and just needs to outlast them

1) huge on the barn change. Can easily repeat

RACE 3

6) will be ready second time off the layoff

1) makes sense again but will be a short price

7) no value here either. Chalky race

RACE 4

3) has early speed and will use it against a weak field

2) may get the pocket trip. Needs more late pop

1) not passing anyone lately. That’s my issue here

RACE 5

6) you won’t get ML odds. Well bred gelding has potential

1) inside draw helps. Should be right in the mix

8) tough post. I like 2nd start back though

RACE 6

4) new barn but he is a war horse

2) probably sits the rail and looks for another check

1) better than recent lines. Looking for value underneath

RACE 7

4) buried inside last time. Solid player in here

1) will be firing from the rail and can get the two hole ride

6) likely the one to catch. Exotics only for me

Race 8

1) just missed after being used twice. Use again

2) gets a driver change and good post. Setup horse

8) fits well but will have work to do from out here

RACE 9

3) softest field he’s seen in awhile. Slight edge

1) makes sense from the rail. Price may be short

9) Obvious and will be overbet. I’m against here

RACE 10

2) sleeper of the night after a big effort

7) good start last time. He needs pace to chase

5) easy miles his last two. Use with caution

RACE 11

1) the coveted “now or never” spot

3) my key horse in the race. Solid contender

8) 2nd time in a hot barn. Bad draw though

RACE 12

7) too good last time. He’s rolling again tonight

8) Josh Green isn’t shipping here for no reason…

3) always put in play. His form is excellent

RACE 13

3) I still have to stick with him after 3 straight wins

5) will sit and follow cover to hit the ticket at a price

4) is in play if he can get a pocket trip here. Lots of speed

Race 14

1) good form. Give the slight nod in here

4) best when near the front. I think he fires again

2) needs a trip to contend. Late move expected
