BEST BET: BET THE SIGHTS

First Race:

1. HALO WORLD 2. GIST OF ART 3. TRI PAW

HALO WORLD stretches out for the first time this season following pair of useful sprints. Beyered consistently in the low 80's around two turns a year ago which makes him too fast for these if able to run back to those kind of performances today. GIST OF ART turned in monster effort first time off the Hurtak claim and should get a perfect trip stalking pace of old nemesis TRI PAW. Latter again looks like the controlling speed stretching back around two turns off wet track sprint. Posted 76 Beyer beating softer on Aug. 27.

Second Race :

1. TIS ME 2. HAPPY LISA 3. COUNTERMEASURES

TIS ME overcame very slow break to finish full of run adding Lasix and dropping to the bottom for her second start. Steps up a notch but need only come away clean to be along in time unless one of the firsters has some talent. HAPPY LISA contested very fast pace, stopped badly on drop to this level, stretch to seven-eighths. Turns back in distance and eligible to show marked improvement if she gets loose on the lead. COUNTERMEASURES looks best of the new faces. Both of mare's previous foals to make the races are winners. Turned in good half mile gate move 8/29.

Third Race:

1. ROYAL LAD 2. HE'SACHICMAGNET 3. MAJOR MECKE

ROYAL LAD stretches out for the first time while returning to maiden ranks after holding own against undefeated Carey's Gold in opening leg of the stallion series. Sire has produced several stakes caliber routers including Snuck In, Outofthebox and Brave Raj winner Ms Brookski on Saturday. Won't look back. HE'SACHICMAGNET raced wide, finished evenly making two turn debut off eight week layoff. Bred to handle the distance. Can move forward prove major factor with that one under his belt. MAJOR MECKE comes off best yet at this distance.

Fourth Race:

1. TIMELY TINA 2. JEBLETTE 3. HOMEBODY

TIMELY TINA has yet to run a poor one on the lawn. Should come running late off what figures to be a very honest pace. Shaky edge in current form in wide open affair. JEBLETTE exits key race which has produced three next out winners, finishing third despite rider losing whip in late stretch. Worked sharp half on wet main track for this. HOMEBODY extended Devin In Pink before dropping length decision the latter returning to win N2X condition earlier this week.

Fifth Race:

1. MAGGIE MAE 2. KALI'S COURAGE 3. PRINCESS JINGLEBUN

MAGGIE MAE might prove best of a weak lot if able to run back to well graded maiden win on Aug. 6 when outgaming PRINCESS JINGLEBUN who returned off that effort to earn diploma by five lengths. KALI'S COURAGE the victim of rough trips in both tries since shipping in from West Va. Might wake up at a price with these.

Sixth Race:

1. CAUTIONARY 2. SUAVE QUEEN 3. FANTASY JET

CAUTIONARY woke up with addition of blinkers on stretch to seven furlongs. Should sit perfect outside, stalkers trip over track that has favored that type of running style all week. SUAVE QUEEN steps up after being haltered from her last for trainer who has had good success first off the claim. Exits well graded dash Aug. 21 and key race that produced three next out winners just nine days earlier. FANTASY JET stretches out off game dash and may ultimately prove the one to catch.

Seventh Race:

1. BORN TO PIC 2. TRUE LOVE'S SECRET 3. AWOL HONEY

A familiar bunch have back at it again with BORN TO PIC perhaps capable of reversing recent setback at hands of nemesis TRUE LOVE'S SECRET with the right trip. The latter's only setback in this category came two back when he was roughed and shuffled down the backstretch. The logical one at odds on but facing prospect of overland trip from outside post. AWOL HONEY never runs a poor one with this kind.

Eighth Race:

1. SUGAR N SPICE 2. TOUR HOSTESS 3. VALID FORBES

SUGAR N SPICE back on top of her game at this point and should catch both favorable pace scenario and a track that enhances her stretch running style. The same holds true for TOUR HOSTESS who should again be coming on strong along with preferred choice at the end. VALID FORBES turns back off a couple of disappointing tries around two turns. Eligible for improvement from off pace of Too Many, Not In Order and perhaps Vague Memory.

Ninth Race:

1. BET THE SIGHTS 2. SERIOUS ATTITUDE 3. IM APPROVED

BET THE SIGHTS, the day's best, returns to level at which he posted pair of easy victories earlier this summer. Need only avoid getting trapped down on what has been a dead rail to get back on winning track after being overmatched over wet track in his last. SERIOUS ATTITUDE showed some new life in the slop two weeks ago and the one to fear on his best. IM APPROVED makes 2001 debut but runs well fresh as evidenced by tough defeat in his 2000 bow under similar conditions here last summer. May ultimately prove the one to catch.

Tenth Race:

1. LISDUFF 2. HARBOR ACRES 3. MY GIRL KATHY

LISDUFF wheels back on short rest, plummets to the bottom after dueling, fading late along a dead rail as 1-2 choice in her last, a race run in eye catching :52.60 seconds.. Should prove too fast for these if avoiding similar trap near the fence. HARBOR ACRES hails from barn whose horses usually show improvement with one under their belts. Beat five debuting for slightly higher tag and has since been back to work a useful half for her first venture at this weak level. MY GIRL KATHY dueled, weakened while flashing improvement in her second start. Can't ignore.
