Race 1

4) will take money and is the one to beat on the class drop

8) should’ve won last week so I don’t trust him now

2) big move last time. Slight chance with rail trip

RACE 2

3) got rolling too late last week. Good spot to stay closer

2) sneaky good in here. He gets on a regular schedule now

9) consistent but this post really hinders his chances

RACE 3

1) it’s a huge class drop and I go elsewhere for the value

6) draws perfect if he can get moving a bit sooner

4) the form is solid and he most likely fires again

RACE 4

1) back class and inside draw on the ship. Winnable spot

5) obvious but he’s not in good form. Against w/ no value

2) form will return. This barn is hot as well

RACE 5

7) very easy spot for this horse. Is he tight enough though?

5) the one to beat but he’s been camera shy

2) must play from the inside. He needs more finish

RACE 6

1) I liked him last week and he raced well. Should win here

6) very consistent so if they go his fractions, he can win

4) in play for exotics. He needs to show me a little more

RACE 7

3) J Rob jumping on to drive gives him the edge here

1) will get an inside trip up close. Slight upset potential

8) as good as any in here. The post is his only issue

Race 8

1) 2nd start back. He should be ready to roll tonight

5) just has to get close enough here. Lots of value as well

3) the form has returned. He does need a trip though

RACE 9

2) they shouldn’t beat him. Tons of class

5) always needs a setup but should hit the ticket

9) fairly consistent. Post really hurts. Exotics only

RACE 10

2) loves to win and the barn change won’t hurt either

4) good form lately. Just not finishing the job

6) the fastest in here. I’m not keen on the price though

RACE 11

6) early speed will be key in this race. He makes front

7) solid at this level. Needs pace to chase

9) versatile and classy. He’s always in play for me

RACE 12

6) the race sets up for a closer and I think he gets the setup

8) facing a littler easier company. Must use with value

1) likely fires and gets the pocket trip. No soft fractions

RACE 13

1) drops back down in class. Good key horse in exactas

9) nice horse but leaving the Moreau barn is a negative

2) crushed off the layoff. He needs his best tonight

Race 14

2) draws better and he should be near the lead throughout

1) always tough and he will also stay up close

6) toss his latest. Prior efforts were solid. Must use

Race 1

♞ 6) Took a bad shuffle last time. Just needs clear sailing
♞ 5) Second start should be even better than her debut
♞ 4) Right there every week

Race 2

♞ 4) Raced well off the shelf. This is a crush spot
♞  9) May take money but is one that just goes along with them
♞ 7) Got stung and paid the price last time. Should fire again

RACE 3

♞ 5) Gets a big driver switch after being parked. Drop and pop
♞  7) Another class dropper but she doesn’t win much
♞  6) The speed is there. The layoff is the concern

RACE 4

♞ 5) Gets back on a semi-regular schedule and gets a drop in class
♞ 3) Much needed class relief. She still looks to need a trip
♞ 4) Comes in off a layoff and decent qualifier. Exotics only today

RACE 5

♞  6) This is a bet back and you get a class drop
♞  2) Likes to chase. Driver change is key
♞ 1) Has early speed and should end up in the two hole

RACE 6

♞ 4) Has issues but the qualifier was massive
♞ 3) Big driver change and good post. Must use here
♞  1) Class drop helps. He needs a wakeup call

RACE 7

♞2) Huge drop in class. Big favorite here
♞ 6) Got stuck inside last week. Frank will have clear sailing tonight
♞ 4) Does enough to hang around for minors again

RACE 8

♞  7) He was used hard early last week. Expect another aggressive drive
♞2) Has been staying close at this level. Similar tonight
♞  5) Won the last time he raced at this level. Price is right

RACE 9

♞  1) Faced some tough winners this season. Inside post helps here
♞ 2) Was rolling late last week. Expect him to be closer tonight
♞ 6) Just has to stay flat to have a say again

RACE 10

♞ 4) Fractions killed him last week. Just needs a breather
♞ (5) Makes sense to get put in play after being shuffled
♞  6) Will get a nice setup tonight

RACE 11

♞ 6) Has been sharp and may offer better value tonight
♞ 4) Gets a better post and will closer
♞ 7) Perfect trip looks unlikely this time

RACE 12

♞ 8) Did all the work last week. She gets cover tonight
♞  9) Will look to follow my top choice the whole way
♞ 2) Brings exotics value from the inside with solid form

RACE 13

♞  3) Post shift is enough to warrant me playing on top here
♞ ) Can sit inside and make a race of it late

RACE 14

♞ 2) Had an easy trip last time. Watch for more aggression
♞ 4) Excellent form should continue, even with the class hike
♞ 5) Another in good form. Tough to toss completely
