Best Bet: WAASMULA (9th)


Race 1

(5) SHE LIGHTS OUT got back on track last week with an easy win and can take another here vs. similar. (1) BRITTLE was closing quickly at the choice late last time and if anyone can break this filly's 2016 goose egg in the win column it's Henry who has been on fire the whole meet so far. (4) DOCS DIVA steps up off a sharp win and can threaten the top two. Especially if she lands in the choice's pocket early. (2) WESTLUCKYCAM should grab a share of this starting inside.

Race 2

(4) KAMIKAZE LINDY trotted faster in his qualifier than his rivals in this race go for purses and he had a couple of good ones behind him in that mile; top call. (6) MUSCLE HUSTLE peaked winning the Tie Silk series and is the obvious danger. (7) MASS BALANCE shows a nice final 1/4 in his qualifier and typically makes the board when he stays flat. (5) GO GET BRUCE could move up dramatically with the barn switch.

Race 3

(5) WHISTYS PARADISE had too far to come last time when bet down to 1/5. The shorter field here is a big help to her. (1) NINETTE B was a strong winner off the claim last time and should get a good trip starting from the inside here. (3) DARKTWISTEDFANTASY could take this group a long way on the lead with so little early speed signed on. (4) FLOAT ON BY had a nice tightener at Flamboro last week and could be the sleeper here.

Race 4

(4) BRING ME DIAMONDS was a game winner last week despite missing 5 weeks. She can be expected to improve off that effort here. (9) ST LADS SMOKIN HOT lived up to her name in her seasonal debut and is the one to beat. (1) REGIL HURRICANE has been 3rd twice straight when leaving from the rail and could make it three in a row here. (7) MISTY DE VIE won off a bit of a lucky trip last time and is more likely to take only a smaller share here.

Race 5

(7) DAZZLING ROCKETTE has really turned up her game the past couple of starts. Ride her while she's hot. (6) MOONLIT DANCE should be able to latch onto some cover this time which could lead to a wakeup performance. (5) P L HURRICANE faces easier from a better post and should be tossed onto Pick 4 tickets. (8) MISS COCO LUCK has been racing well and will likely be rolled early here by McNair in search of a pocket ride.

Race 6

(2) MAYHEM SEELSTER finished off last season with a 3rd in the Breeders Crown final and races well fresh. She should be ready to roll here. (4) TOPVILLE CHEETAH went too fast last time and had nothing left for the drive. She can rebound here with a better trip. (3) GOOD WILL HANOVER and (6) TWIN B THONG are two more that look sharp and ready for their seasonal bows to consider here.

Race 7

(4) BACK YARD BABY is the only mare in this race with two wins this year which is as good an angle as you might find in this head-scratcher; slightest of nods. (6) CALL IT COURAGE keeps coming close but her 2 for 47 record the past two years is worrisome. (9) TIGRA SEELSTER has sneaky good form and could pop at a price here. (8) ADAYMER SEELSTER can close for a minor share here.

Race 8

(3) BLENHEIM closed for an easy win last week and should get a beneficial pace setup here. Call to repeat. (1) HAILEYSGONEDANCING was a sharp winner in her sophomore debut and is the one to beat. (6) MYRETIREMENTTICKET had good luck with Henry driving last season and isn't out of this. (4) WINDSONGMUSCLELADY comes off a perfect-trip win but faces tougher here. A minor award is likely her ceiling.

Race 9

(4) WAASMULA was impressive in victory last week, coming within a tick of her life's mark. She can double up here, again at a short price. (1) MUCH ADOO has been razor-sharp the past two starts and looks like the only real threat to the choice. (5) DELIGHTFUL HILL dropped and popped now moves back up but can take a share here. (3) TWIN B INSPIRING could better this placing if she can work out a pocket trip which is very possible.

Race 10

(6) JENKINS CREEK goes for Moreau here off the claim in a field where he should get a decent trip up front; top call. (9) YOURE MY HERO is fast but erratic. He can take this if he stays on stride. (1) NEW YORK NIGHTMARE should work out a better trip here and take a share. (2) MYSTIC DEUCE has raced well for trainer Bourassa and is in with an upset chance here.

Race 11

(8) PARKLANE GLAMOUROUS had a useful sophomore debut last week and can beat these if she is put into the race earlier. (2) RADAR TRAP was sneaking up late last time and can threaten off a good trip form an inside post here. (7) EVANGELIN SEELSTER burned a lot of money last week but now returns to a 7-day cycle here and can improve off that mile. (10) H P SISSY has been firing home quickly and can pass many of these late. (9) DIXIE LULLABY was a win machine racing in the Maritimes last year but gets a big test here from a challenging post. Small share predicted.
