Analysis:
NORTHEAST HARBOR has been outsprinted in the early portion of her sprint efforts, but she may appreciate the slower pace of this route event. She stretches out in the third start of the form cycle, and drops in for a maiden claiming tag for the first time. She may work out a nice tracking trip under five-pound apprentice rider, and this barn shows strong numbers with juveniles (5-26, 19% over the last year with all two-year-old runners).
DIVA'S GOLD has several angles in her corner as she drops for a tag in her second start back. She was bumped hard at the start of her most recent try at Presque Isle Downs, and was caught up in a pace battle for most of the way. She should be attending the fractions once again today.
ECHOES RESOUNDING showed speed over a closer-friendly Turfway track in her initial route try, and can move forward off that effort. Expect Corey Lanerie to have her close up as she saves ground going into the first turn.
THREEFORKS RIVER finished evenly behind promising turf filly Abbott Hall in her only route attempt, then passed some tired runners when dropping back to a sprint last time out. She draws a terrible post, but can run late here at a price. SONG OF CHARM rallied belatedly in her debut at Churchill Downs, and that race produced three next-out winners. She didn't show a similar kick in her subsequent starts, but drops and switches to hot-riding Robby Albarado. DANCE WITH DADDY raced evenly in her debut, and wheels back on short notice. She had a terrible post for her debut run, and is another that can make the exotics at a big number. TACTICAL DISCOVERY adds Lasix after an awful effort at Saratoga. The recent bullet work indicates improvement may be on the way. YESMAR ran into a runaway at Turfway Park, but was claimed out of that race, and may be tighter in her second start back. BODAZZLE comes out of a quick maiden special weight at Turfway, and can improve as she drops. The daughter of Albert the Great should also appreciate today's added distance. BRIGHTIA RUBY adds blinkers, but must improve four lengths on Yesmar. LANCELOT'S LOVE switches to live barn after dull try at Emerald Downs. She's bred to like this distance, and isn't impossible in what shapes up to be a tough, tough maiden claimer.

Selections:
1. Northeast Harbor
2. Diva's Gold
3. Echoes Resounding

The Play:
Northeast Harbor to Win at 7-2 odds or greater

Analysis:
PISO MOJADO showed good speed last time in a Monmouth Park maiden special weight dominated by odds-on King Puma, the next-out winner of a 100K stake at Presque Isle Downs. Piso Mojado drops into the claiming ranks for the first time, and should be forwardly-placed.
POT OF GOLD has a little pedigree being by Touch Gold from the female family of Serena's Song. It looks like he missed some time between his last two workouts, however.
STROLL WITH ME blew a clear lead over the Kentucky Downs sod, but earned a solid Beyer that day, and returned with a bullet work at The Thoroughbred Center. He's another likely pace factor.
TRANQUIL TIMES has eaten a lot of money in his short career, but he goes second off the layoff, drops in class with early speed, and switches to Robby Albarado. He has yet to gain ground from the stretch call to the wire so demand mutuel value. BERGMAN made a midrace move in his debut at Arlington, drops in class, and adds Rene Douglas. He may work out a nice trip behind the speeds. MIDNIGHT BREAK took some money for his debut at Presque Isle, and ran evenly behind a runaway winner that came back to run third against King Puma in that synthetic stakes race. He seems well-placed by the underrated Eric Reed. INDYAMA JONES makes career debut for top connections, but the workouts fail to excite. CHAPEL BY THE SEA tired badly in career debut at Turfway. Don't be surprised if he tries rating tactics here, and this barn is fantastic with young horses.

LOOKN MIGHTY FAST has reeled off some quick works over this surface. PAID PREVIEW sold for $140,000 as a weanling, but is in for almost half that price today.

Selections:
1. Piso Mojado

Analysis:
FLY TRUE is by a precocious sire out of the Grade 2-placed mare Fly Borboleta, and she needn't be a star to beat this bunch of maiden claimers. She shows a string of steady workouts over Turfway Park's polytrack, and capped off her tab with a strong five furlong drill on October 11.
CHANGING STORM goes out for low-profile barn so he should be a good price. There are some turf influences in his pedigree that may help him adapt nicely to the synthetic surface.
DOOKIE DUCK exits a slow maiden special weight at Turfway Park, but worked a bullet in the interim, and may show better early zip here.
FULL CURTAIN drops with speed, and can be an early pace factor under Julien Leparoux. MY BUDDY GARFIELD adds blinkers after drifting out badly in his debut at Turfway. He worked a bullet out of the gate on October 11 (presumably wearing blinkers), but needs to show more. STEAMIEST was dull on the board prior to his debut, then didn't run a step once the gates opened. ALL THAT MONEY may be in a bit steep. TOTAL DARKNESS goes out for strong debut barn, but will have to break well from the inside post. WHAT ABOUT IT BRUD shows some quick works at Churchill for underrated, excellent barn, and wouldn't be a surprise under Robby Albarado. HOPE FOR US ALL is bred for more distance, and hasn't shown a published work in fifteen days. RIVERMANS CHARMER looks in tough.

Selections:
1. Fly True
2. Changing Storm
3. Dookie Duck

The Play:
Fly True to Win and Place at 5-1 or greater

Race 8
6 Furlongs (Polytrack)
Allowance (N2L)
2-year-old fillies
Purse $52,000

Analysis:
SWEET RELISH was off poorly last time out over the Arlington polytrack, was in behind horses on the far turn, and was hassled by another rival throughout the stretch. She still bulled her way out nearing the wire only to be bothered again when the winner drifted out just a bit. She should get a solid pace to attack in here, and only needs an alert break to contend.
ARGYLE PINK was a resolute winner of her debut at Saratoga, then ran well behind a pair of good fillies in the Grade 2 Matron at Belmont. She obviously has ability, and looms a strong threat from stalking range.
FOUR GIFTS beat six next-out winners in her career debut at Arlington, then was leaning on Sweet Relish during the stretch run on September 19. She may revert to speed tactics under Shaun Bridgmohan.
RACHEL ALEXANDRA won a key race at Churchill, then ran on well to be second in the Grade 3 Debutante. She's working quickly for her return to action, but must prove her mettle over polytrack. MIN D'ORO ran away and hid in the mud at Suffolk Downs, but the pace may be hotter in this spot. LADY GRIZZLEY scored as the chalk first out over the Tapeta surface at Presque Isle Downs, and now adds Lasix for high-percentage barn. She needs a slight Beyer boost to contend for win honors. PRIDE won first-out here during the spring meet, and never had a chance when wide in the Arlington-Washington Lassie. She'll have to work out a trip from a tricky post. HOT PISTOL only earned a 35 Beyer for her maiden win at Mountaineer, and will need to do better here. RUNAWAY HEART hasn't shown much in her last two races against stakes horses.

Selections:
1. Sweet Relish
2. Argyle Pink
3. Four Gifts

Sweet Relish to Win at 7-2 or greater

Analysis:
EL CRESPO's frequent workmate, Kopitar, scored here as a "Keeneland Baby" selection the other day at a big price. A son of A.P. Indy from a quality family, El Crespo may offer value in a strong race featuring some top connections and bloodlines.
Uncoupled entrymate KING BO BO is homebred by the solid sire Menifee, and is another worth following at what should be good odds.
BLAME raced on a deep rail in his career debut at Turfway, but earned a solid Beyer Speed Figure, and gained valuable experience from that race. He wouldn't be a surprise.
RICORIATOA could be any kind as the colt is by Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Smarty Jones out of a half-sister to Preakness winner Bernardini.
AQUINAS has picked up the pace in his recent workouts, and goes out for one of the best debut barns in the business. SMOKNDRINKNGAMBLN showed speed at Turfway Park, and can be part of the pace here. SARATOGA SINNER's frequent workmate, Uno Peso, disappointed at rather short odds here yesterday. FLYING

WARRIOR passed some tired rivals in his debut at Arlington, and the barn does much better second-out than with firsters. Expect improvement. REWIRING exits a slow maiden race at Turfway, and is stuck on the rail. JADAL goes out for barn that has sent out tons of live babies this year. This one has a nice pedigree, but may eventually do best at longer distances. FEEL OUT MOMENT's frequent workmate, Frame of Reference, did nothing the other day for Pletcher. PEGASUS FEVER adds Lasix, but must improve off dull debut at 33-1 odds.

Selections:
1. El Crespo
2. King Bo Bo
3. Blame

The Play:
El Crespo to Win and Place at 6-1 odds or greater
