Race 1

(2) THISISHOWWEROLL nice-looking colt exploded late in the qualifier for the win showing a big burst of speed.  (9) KING OF THE SWAMP put in an excellent debut showing good pace on both ends of the mile.  (3) QUINNOCCHIO has some ability and should be better in his second lifetime start.

Race 2

(3) QUEEN BEE filly looks to be a little more advanced than the others at this stage.   (1) BI POLAR ROSE will look to make it two straight to start her career and has lots of room to improve.  (4) FOX VALLEY YOKO raced well in the qualifier and finds an inexperienced field.

Race 3

(6) PARKLANE SPARKLE filly has a ton of upside and a big engine.  (5) GET THE TERROR was hit in the face with the whip in her last race causing the break.  The 3-year-old is one of few in the race who can pace with the top choice.   (10) BOXED CHOCOLATES has been off for six weeks and could need a start.

Race 4

(7) GET YOUR CAMO ON 2-year-old makes his debut off a super qualifier.  (6) A REAL HOOSIER flashed ability and has proven connections.   (8) GOLD STAR IMAGE doesn't look like much on paper but could show significant improvement in his second go.

Race 5

(9) MIRIAM'S JET needed his first start and raced the best of all from way back.  (4) MAZEPPA HANOVER has been much better for the new connections and should keep moving forward.  (3) ELOQUENCE well bred filly has a nice pedigree and should offer a big price in a tough race to handicap.

Race 6

(3) ONE SURE APACHE takes a huge drop in class and should hit the board with a good effort.  (1) NITROEN FUSE gets the best post and owns a good brush when timed right.  (7)  BLUEBIRD CHEETAH has been off a few months but does own ability when tight.

Race 7

In a wide open and tough race to handicap (10) I'M REAL GOOD drops back down to a level that is much more manageable; fires early.  (4) READY will be tough to beat if he makes the gate.  (5) IM A DAN FOOL is a bit of a question mark coming off the scratch but his best would get his picture taken.

Race 8

(5) LITTLE MS CHRISSY has little to show for her efforts so far in the 4-year-old campaign but that could change in this spot.  (4) FOX VALLEY VETO appears to be getting better and was razor sharp last start, however the gelding does face a much tougher field.  (3)  GRC TRAVEL KING is only good for a few starts; use underneath.

Race 9

(2) ONE JAZZY LADY should be sharper off the victory after a few weeks off.  (3) KESONS ALLURE is just now rounding into form after a long layoff and has some ability.  (6)  ALWAYS A ROBIN well bred filly raced evenly last out but should find this spot much easier.

Race 10

(1) DOTS BIGBOY looks tough to beat at this level with a decent effort.   (2) THREE NEW DAWNS was no good on the tight turns at Maywood but was better on the big track.  (8) FOX VALLEY IVAN is hit or miss but a good effort puts him in the money.
