Spot Play: LEGAL PROCESS (11th)

Race 1

(3) BROOKDALE SHADOW tracked swift fractions last time and was still around at the finish. She fits at this level and could notch her first win of the year here. (6) DOCTOR TERROR has beaten much better than these in the past and will be tough if she is anywhere close to her best here coming off a layoff. (8) MISCHIEVIOUSGIRLS should enjoy dropping to the bottom class here and can close for a share. (7) CALL ME MAYBE is another that will be passing rivals down the lane and she can fill one of the bottom exotics rungs.

Race 2

(5) CLASSIC VENTURE was an easy winner over most of these last time and is a solid bet to double up here as the chalk. (1) ELDORADO OF GOLD S has been a solid performer at this level when he stays flat and his potent late speed should get him close here. (4) PRINCESS CROWN has raced great in three Mohawk starts and she has really turned her form around; exacta factor. (3) A ROD HALL can close for a minor award here if he minds his manners.

Race 3

(7) HANNELORE HANOVER has been sensational so far this year and picks up Gingras here for this Armbro Flight elim; top call. (2) SHAKE IT CERRY has yet to notch a win this year but has the speed and class to contend if she stays trotting this time. (5) CHARMED LIFE rarely misses the board and will be closing late, as always. (3) ALLIE LABROOK beat the choice last time when that rival was hung the mile. She is more likely for a smaller share here.

Race 4

(5) PALM PATROL left hard for the front then stayed with the leader through some quick fractions last time. Moving to the middle of the gate should help here; slight nod. (3) SHOW SOME LEG raced well in her comeback race and should be a main contender here. (4) DE VALERIA just missed in two straight and should be able to latch onto some decent cover here then unleash her late kick; using. (6) CHEEKIE could get closer here starting from a better post.

Race 5

(1) BAR HOPPING dodges division leader Southwind Frank here and should offer a square price; call to upset. (3) DAYSON has been very impressive in his two wins and is an obvious contender that you must have on early Pick 4 tickets. (11) GOIN TO THE LIMIT must overcome the post, but he's another that rates highly on current form. Local hope (9) WILL TAKE CHARGE should be passing many of these late and can crack the Super or Tri.

Race 6

(6) VICTORIA SEMALU has improved her late speed in recent starts and should get a good trip near the front here. She is one of many that could win this. (3) LIGHTS GO OUT returns to a 7-day rotation here and should be flying late. (1) MISS COCO LUCK has been racing well using a closing style recently and isn't out of this. (2) GLAMOUR SEELSTER didn't show much in her seasonal bow but could wake up here with a much better effort.

Race 7

(1) MARION MARAUDER warmed up for this with an easy win vs. lesser here last week, now picks up Zeron and should be tough leaving from the inside. (5) TONY SOPRANO qualified faster than he ever raced on May 23rd and is the obvious main danger. (2) MERCHANDISER has been closing quickly in recent starts and should take a good share here. (6) DIA MONDE has improved dramatically this year now picks up a catch driver here. He isn't out of this.

Race 8

(3) BARN DOLL hasn't been able to get untracked this season but was better in her last start and might be able to bring her 'A' game here. (4) ELEGANT SERENITY closed sharply in the Miss Versatility here recently and has built up a good record at Mohawk. (1) KELSEYS KEEPSAKE goes for the always dangerous Burke/Gingras duo and will likely try to make front early and back the pace down in the middle stages. (7) RULES OF THE ROAD has fired off two impressive miles leading up to this and should also garner some Pick 4 consideration.

Race 9

(7) LYONS RIVER PRIDE gets a big driver change here and should be able to do some damage in this field. (9) THISORTHAT HANOVER re-qualified okay and although she is always risky with his gait issues, if she does stay flat she is a big danger here. (1) JORDIES HOPE has a strong in-the-money record and should take a slice here with the improved post. (3) ABBIJADE HANOVER has improved her form in her past two and is another that can enter the picture late.

Race 10

(3) UTOPIA goes for three straight here vs. tougher and he never gets bet; value play. (2) SECOND SISTER is the obvious class and should get untracked with a better effort here vs. much easier. (4) KINETIC KING was flying late last time and merits consideration despite the class rise. (5) MURMUR HANOVER should be closer on the class drop but note his weak win record this year.

Race 11

(7) LEGAL PROCESS unleashed a wicked late surge despite racing wide for most of the final 1/4 last week to win at a big price. Call to repeat off that impressive score. (4) RIDE AWAY SHARK has taken a while to come to hand this year but has reached her best form now and is a threat here. (2) D GS PESQUERO should be dangerous here on the class drop and the inside post should help. (5) SOUTHWIND GEISHA gets to drop in class off a good effort last week and she should be heard from late here.

Race 12

(5) BRING ME DIAMONDS raced well enough to get a check in the OSS Gold last week now faces easier and should stalk and pounce on a solid early pace. (8) WESTLUCKYCAM gets Jamieson back here and he should be able to work out a decent trip; using. (6) ST LADS SMOKIN HOT is capable of better and will likely be put into play earlier here and grab a share. (1) MISS BABE DELIGHT has been displaying decent late speed and can close for a slice vs. these. (7) GOLDEN IDOL comes off a quick win at Miami Valley and could be tough if she can make the front without a lot of pressure. That scenario is hard to predict, however.
