Sunday Oct 25, 2020

Race 1

3) has the speed as long as she stays flat. Take the price

6) very consistent type. Good horse to key all around

1) chased a fast mile last time. A rail trip looks good again

RACE 2

5) doing his best work right now and he’s firing again

3) was too far back last week. Decent value for pick 5

6) will sit and follow again but has to get closer tonight

RACE 3

2) gets CC to drive and makes this one the top pick

5) third time lasix. Seems to be best near the lead

4) facing easier company. Just a chaser for exotics

RACE 4

2) been too far back the last couple. Driver switch is huge

6) gets class relief and should stay close throughout

4) early speed is his game. He just has to fend them off

RACE 5

6) was in a tough spot last week in the fast pace. Great play

7) always a play and now you get Corey driving

8) gets a class drop but tough post. Still a use

RACE 6

4) should be a big fave that’ll be tough to beat

8) usually plays underneath and I see no different here

1) huge post improvement makes him a price in exotics

RACE 7

9) even from out here, this horse is tons the best

2) new barn but would need a serious wake-up call to win

1) good enough to sit inside and make a late run for tri’s

Race 8

6) tough race but the early speed is with this horse. Edge

2) post advantage helps. Tough to leave off your tickets

9) makes sense but has to overcome the post

RACE 9

1) was in a bad spot last time. The rail keeps him closer

8) hits the board weekly. Early move coming

2) likely sits the pylons tonight. Slight upset chance

RACE 10

5) drops and keeps CC. He will be much closer tonight

3) the one to catch…again

4) the setup looks good for a late rally to go by this field

RACE 11

9) was MASSIVE last time. That form continues

7) also obvious here. Solid exacta contender

1) loves the front and will likely take a pocket trip

RACE 12

3) was Davis’ pick getting out of claimers against toughies

6) Eric Ell on fire here. Must use on the ship in

2) always in the hunt. Inside post helps in this tough race

RACE 13

1) not much else will leave so he can steal the fractions

8) just has to get close enough from this outside post

5) another closer. The speed is there if he minds manners

Race 14

5) needed the last start. He should be tough to beat

7) has back class and can outfinish this field

8) facing easier but the post kills his win chances

RACE 15

8) loves this level. They have to catch him

5) looks like the setup horse. A late move is coming

9) been close recently. J Rob will get him involved

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
