Race 1

(5) RT HABENERO has really rounded into a nice race horse late in the year.  (3) CAPTAIN GREEDY will be flying out of the gate early securing an excellent trip up close.  (4) JAKE QUAIDER has flashed some ability in a field with few contenders.

Race 2

(3) LITTLE MAN MORAND went from racing gamely to completely empty last out.  The gelding gets a driver change and finds a weak field.  (9) BOOT SCOOTN BOOGIE will offer a big price in an inconsistent field full of question marks.  (8) PARK LANE SCOOTER will also offer a big price and has shown the ability to make a decent move late at times despite looking terrible on paper.

Race 3

(3) RIVERSIDE GOLD comes into the race off a decent qualifier and has some upset potential.  (6) VALLEY PHOTO well bred mare raced well in her career debut and should have more to offer.  (2) VICK VALOR made a big late burst last out after breaking at the start; threat.

Race 4

(6) HAPPY TIMES THREE filly has talent and some recent excuses.  The connections have shown the ability to bounce back after a poor start.  (5) PRINCESSS JOVENTINA four-year-old mare looks terrible on paper but was bet way down off a layoff at this level and needed her last two starts.  (4) ALWAYS A JEWEL always seems to come up short; command a price.

Race 5

(5) LIZZABELLE doesn't win often but is capable against a very soft field.  (3) INDIAN CREEK KATIE gets a low percentage pilot but has really shown a big late kick even with dull cover.  (9) PARK LANE CRYSTAL would have been a heavy favorite at this level last year and does own the ability to win despite being shut out on the year.

Race 6

(5) HOLY MCMOSES was roughed up last out but could be a big player with a smooth trip.  (1) DAVE'S ART looks to be in line for another ground saving trip; threat.  (2) PARTY'S GOLD bumps up in class off two straight victories and could have more to offer.

Race 7

(6) VAL'S WAY has been very good at this level and should offer a fair price.  (2) SAND IN MY BIKINI has turned it around in two of his last three racing very gamely in the victories.  (4) SISTER'S KEEPER looks to have a chance in an evenly matched race but is probably best used underneath.

Race 8

(4) PARKLANE GLITTER never fired after a big effort.  A repeat of his start prior gets it done.  (3) GET THE TERROR is very inconsistent from week to week but has beaten this field on the year.  (9) SANDCASTLE GIRL probably has the most ability but needs another big effort from a tough post.

Race 9

In a tough race to gauge (5) ALEXIBRAY should offer value and raced gamely to a horse who has dominated this class on the year.  (6) KITTY O'BRIEN has been heating up and just needs a good setup; fires late.  (3) DONTMESSWITHANGEL kicked home nicely last out despite poor cover and a soft middle half.
