Race 1

(10) WORLDCLASS HANOVER thrived last week with the class drop, powering by her rivals late. She can repeat here despite the post, which should help her price. (1) RENEGADE MAGIC shows two wins on her card already in the non-winners of three class that she took in August; using. (3) MERCHANDISER bottomed out the field last week using blistering speed to the 3/4 pole. He may need more careful rating this time, but, he is a contender again. (8) PRESQUILLE capitalized on a slowing pace last time. These are tougher but he can close for a smaller share this time.

Race 2

(8) TONIGHTIMLOVINGYOU was visibly motoring late in the mile last week. She can win here if she gets rolling earlier. (4) DOCS SAUSILITO draws inside and faces easier. She will rightfully take plenty of action here and she's the one to beat. (2) TOP ROYAL is another that will benefit from post relief and she has shown in the past that she can take lots of air and keep coming; using. (5) HEX should be heard from early; late is debatable.

Race 3

(3) DELIGHTFUL HILL stands a decent chance of being situated in the pocket turning home here and that's when she is most dangerous; slight nod. (2) WAASMULA comes off two good tries vs. some of the best on the continent. She's the one to beat but she'll be odds-on. (1) WRANGLER MAGIC should get a good trip starting from the pole and make the ticket. (4) STORM POINT is worth a look for the exotics based on the recent company she has kept.

Race 4

(9) LEAVING A LEGACY was a strong winner while taking a new life's mark last week; call to repeat. (2) MATTJESTIC TEMPO was a victim of interference and knocked out of the race before the start last week. She has proven that she fits this class. (6) TOTAL KNOCKOUT takes a check almost every week but she will need a perfect trip to beat the top two choices. (8) CHARMING HILL was 2nd to the choice last week and she can grab another share here.

Race 5

(7) WINDSONG LIGHTNING raced well considering the brutal trip he got last week. He should be tough here from an improved post. (3) HOPIESDRAGNINTHEDO retains Filion and leaves from a much better post here; using. (2) IM THE PIED PIPER comes off two failed efforts as the chalk at Flamboro but he could get sent early this time which would make him a player here. (8) CASIMIR OVERDRIVE will be winding up and passing many of these down the lane for a share.

Race 6

(3) RAMAS LAST SON comes off an even effort vs. better when he had missed a month. Saftic has driven him aggressively in similar spots in the past and he should be a good price; top call. (4) ELEGANT SERENITY should go better here but she might be an underlay on the board. (9) YOURE MAJESTIC is worth a look dropping in class with a 26 4/5 kicker in tow from last week's mile. (7) LADY PING has been racing great when she has been flat, but she has a history of chronic gait issues; your call.

Race 7

(1) VELOCITY DRIVEN moves in nine posts and he should get a good pace to stalk from midpack this time; slight nod. (5) ERLE DALE N takes a big drop and he will no doubt get put into the race early here by McNair. (9) HEZA THRILL N has been impressive in both starts since shipping overseas. Don't dismiss him despite the class rise. (4) SINGLE WHITE SOCK looks logical for a smaller share here.

Race 8

(9) REGALLY READY should blast right to the front here in the class drop. She is a good bet to drop-and-pop. (5) RIDE AWAY SHARK has been racing well at this class and she will likely pop soon at this level. (2) NINETTE B is likely to make the Tri or Super ticket off a good following trip here. (4) SOUTHWIND GEISHA raced tough last week at the bottom level but she has beaten better in the past.

Race 9

(7) WHISKEY TAX eludes the very hot Windsun Revenge this week and he should have a great shot here with that rival missing in action. (6) NAHAR took a new life's mark last week when cruising vs. easier. Count this 11-year old as a contender here. (8) CATCH THE DREAM is always a danger to pass them all if he gets the right pace setup; using. (5) RUBBER DUCK figures for a slice here.

Race 10

(3) STACIA HANOVER paced her back 1/2 in 54 flat last week and she can take this group if she's kept in close enough range. (2) OUR HOT MAJORETTE was just beaten in a gritty effort last time. She's the one to haul down. (1) DAZZLING ROCKETTE has been racing well in the top class at Hoosier. She can take a slice here with her typical closing brush. (5) WITCH DALI should be part of the early pace and she could go a long way if she is left alone for too long.

Race 11

(1) SELLING THE DREAM is one of the sharpest racehorses on the grounds. I'll stick with her again this week despite her facing tougher. (4) LIGHTS GO OUT steps up off a sharp win and she gets a good post; using. (8) SHES LIGHTS OUT went a big trip on the rim to record a new life's mark last week. She can share here. (3) GRACIES PARADE has woke up in her last few starts and can use different racing styles effectively; consider for exotics.

Race 12

(3) JACK RACKHAM had no shot of passing them all last time but he did well to beat more than 1/2 of the field. Moving inside should precipitate a more aggressive approach; top call. (9) DREAMY FELLA is sharp, dangerous and might be a great price from out there; using. (5) DREAMFAIR MESA looked good striding out down the lane to victory last week. Toss him on Pick 4 tickets, too. (7) MACH POWER figures for a smaller share closing off cover. (4) ALL THE COOKIES was sharp in victory last week but these are a lot tougher; minor share predicted.
