Tuesday July 7


2) HAULIN OATS Too sharp right now. Tough one to go against

3) OFFICER JIM Good enough form to make it a race late

6) BUDGIE SMUGGLER Has been consistent and makes sense to hit the ticket again

5) SWEET VIVIAN Minors player with a trip


6) PROLOGUE He’s in top form and if he goes the same mile as last week, he wins

3) MYSTIC RULER Throw in your pickers. Class drop should help him a ton

4) GIGGLE MONSTER Always a threat against these. Has to get closer today

5) TIMETOPLAYTHEGAME Got stung hard last week. He should duck early


4) PLACE AT THE BEACH Tough trip last time. Bobcat should be more aggressive early

2) PRINCESS DELCINE Loves this track and makes sense to be there late

3) DONTCLOSEYOUREYES Benefitted from the trip two back. No value and I’m against

5) RELENTLESS DANCER Gets a driver change and class drop. Must use in pickers


4) THEREALGOODS Faced a tough winner last time. Softer spot here to be close again

7) WX DONTWORRYBOUTIT Consistent form but has to overcome the draw today

8) DON’T WANNABE LATE Showed decent miles at Fraser. The qualifier was sharp

1) HERECOMESTHETHUNDR Gets a post shift and will likely sit inside for minors


2) SB BODACIOUS Giant effort last week. Tough spot but I love his current form

5) I’M AN ATHLETE Showed no interest in his latest. He will be closer in here

4) SKIM THE TOP Had a nice setup but couldn’t finish it against my top pick last week

1) QUEENACE BLUE CHIP Gets the rail and slight edge over others for the superfecta



7) STORMYWEATHERAHEAD Bet back that only needs a little pace to chase

6) MARCED MAGIC Cold barn but he should be ready to roll after getting trapped

1) MYSTER DRAGON Looks obvious but won’t have any value. Still a use

2) ZANETTI Cut some fast fractions last week. Needs a breather on the lead today



5) MY FRISKIE BOY Gets a driver change and this looks like a setup in his favor

2) WESTERN DEVIL Is always a use against these. Inside post helps

4) BUNKERHILL PHIL Seems to not want to win right now. Good key horse though

1) TO THE LIMIT Will suck along on the rail for a piece of this



6) LAST FLIGHT IN N Gets Pat Berry to drive and outdraws her biggest rivals. Slight nod

9) AMASA ARION Is game but will have to work hard to make the lead again

8) MY KIWI LADY N Needed that last race. Sneaky price play if they go fast early

7) ALWAYS BE LUCY Perfect trip winner last time. More work to do from here



9) ROCKIN SPEED Ships from Hoosier after a couple of needed starts. Classy horse

8) HEZA REAL DIAMOND Excellent form and he’s gonna fire from the car again

7) TOP NOTCH Another with good form. Any of these can win this race

6) STUCKEY DOTE Always a factor but he’s not at the top of his game just yet



6) IMONLYTELLINYAONCE Was in a tough spot last time. Here’s the price of the day

8) SELMA O’BRIEN Right there every week. Just has to get close enough today

4) REYS N A RUCKUS Tons the best last time. Better group here with little value

1) PLATINUM TIME Will be up close from the rail. That’s where he’s best

9) EXPLAINNOTCOMPLAIN Would rate higher if not for the poor draw


9) CENALTA DIAMOND Is better than these but she’s not herself. Still gets the edge

1) FUTURE DELIGHT Will be in the outer flow for sure. Form is good since shipping

8) LOOKSLIKEWEMADEIT I expect this one to fire early. That’s her best chance here

7) BERTHA VANATION Has the class but hasn’t raced since May. Exotics only today

5) BAIA’S DELIGHT Flew home in her last start. She needs her best to repeat
