Shadow Runner, Surrey Star

C's

Lil Bit O’Fun

SEBASTIAN FLYTE (#5, 5-1) is a former Grade 1-placed runner who turned back the clock with a game victory at BHP June 9, and now gets a most encouraging multiple-level class hike. STONEY FLEECE (#7, 5-1) came back after 2 months off with 2 sharp outings at BHP and may be ready to peak. 

Race 4

Keys

Matagot, Affliction

B's

Public Defender

C's

Jazillionaire

MATAGOT (#5, 6-1) ran on decently on turf at BEL June 21 for 4th. However, not only did that come on turf but it came for nearly twice this tag. He’s since moved West, drops and the Kitten’s Joys love Polytrack. AFFLICTION (#9, 5-2) takes a most significant drop after finishing 4th for $62,500 at BHP June 13. He gets Bejarano and boasts 2 solid works since.

Race 5

Keys

Sugar Spice

B's

Saturday Nite Wish, Abella, Salty Forecast

C's

Pennies From Denny

SUGAR SPICE (#1, 7-2) returns from a lengthy layoff with strong works (2 bullets) for Belvoir who is proven off the bench. She may be the speed of the speed and the rail is playing friendly so far this meet. SATURDAY NITE WISH (#5, 3-1) comes off a sharp 2nd at BHP June 27, her first start in 10 months, and was claimed by West. ABELLA (#6, 6-1) has been knocking on the door while SALTY FORECAST (#3, 6-1) is capable of better than her last at BHP June 13 (ran 7th). She’s worked sharply since and is reunited with Maldonado who was up for her 2 prior strong races.
