Race 1

(8) NOMATTERWHEN won in this class from the 10-hole two starts back and she should get an aggressive steer here with the drop back down to this level. (2) NINETTE B should wake up with a much better effort with a drop to this claiming class and she should be put into the race much earlier here. (7) DARKTWISTEDFANTASY hasn't fared well since being claimed by the Johnson barn, but the class drop should help her here, too. (4) BUNDORAN is capable of following along and closing for a smaller share late in the mile.

Race 2

(4) MACH DÉJÀ VU was closing too late last time into an accelerating late pace. He can move forward off that decent debut and may get a more aggressive drive this time. (2) BET ON BRETT wired the field off easy fractions and held the choice at bay late last time. He looks like the one to beat on paper but he may not get the same trip. (8) DOWN ON MY LUCK was a decent 2nd in his debut and is another contender to consider for Pick 5 tickets. (3) STONEBRIDGE BULLET disappointed last time but the trip just didn't go his way. He may get sent early this time which would give him a better chance.

Race 3

(3) BLUSH AND CRUSH raced much better last time but was no match for a heavily-favored class dropper late in the mile. She stands a decent chance of breaking the 2016 goose egg here. (5) ALL B OVER faces much easier here and should wake up in this spot with a better performance and result. (1) DEWEYKEEPUMNWHY is capable but often finds himself too far behind the leaders turning for home. (4) JUSTALITTLEFASTER is a good one to throw on the bottom of Tri and Super bets here.

Race 4

(8) SHES LIGHTS OUT faces much easier here after closing for a check in the Town Pro final and she should be more aggressive early in this company; top call. (9) BERNADETTE was a solid winner two back in a similar class then wasn't disgraced racing in OSS Gold company. She's in with a decent shot here. (3) LEAVING A LEGACY debuts for trainer Weller which makes her worthy of consideration here. (2) TONIGHTIMLOVINGYOU was close twice in non-winners of two classes last month and she should grab a share here.

Race 5

(2) P L HURRICANE set rapid splits last time and tired only late in the mile. She can take this group off a covered trip, which is a good possibility. (5) SOUTHWIND GEISHA finished evenly in a quick mile last time. Her good finishing kick might play better in this field. (3) RUBIS PRESCOTT grinded it out first up in a game effort but was beaten by a tripped-out pocket skimmer late. She's not out of this. (1) BROOKDALE SHADOW could get a similar trip to the winning journey she enjoyed last week, so toss her on multi-race tickets.

Race 6

(3) CATCH THE DREAM takes a big class drop for his third start of the year and a better result is likely despite him having missed a couple of weeks. (2) BAX OF LIFE is very competitive in these classes and should be on Pick 4 tickets. (1) CAULFIELD drops and gets a better post and is in with a decent chance here despite his poor win record over the last two years. (5) WHITE BECOMES HER will likely get an aggressive drive here but a minor share seems most likely for her.

Race 7

(3) SILVERINYOURPOCKET paced his back 1/2 in 54 1/5 in his debut after leaving from an outer post. He can leave better here and notch his maiden-breaking score. (4) ASTON HILL DAVE was a nose short of a game winner after getting bet down to odds-on last week. He is the main danger to the choice here. (9) KENTUCKY NICK gets a significant driver change here and he can be a lot closer at a price. (7) DOC SEMALU is another that should show improvement second time out. Toss him in your exotic wagers.

Race 8

(8) MASTER THE VIEW was a good 2nd to a more experienced rival in his debut and it won't be long before he registers his maiden win. (7) POP N LIAM moved aggressively in the third 1/4 and finished on even terms with the choice. He should be right there again tonight. (9) KINGSTON SEELSTER did his best work when racing off a helmet in his debut and he may be looking for that kind of a trip this time. (6) TREMENDOUS PLAY had a decent debut and could show a lot more here with that experience in tow.

Race 9

(4) NEVER BEEN TOLD stepped up in class and took a new life's mark first off the claim last week; call to repeat. (1) PUTNAMS NEW YEAR was 2nd behind the choice when also racing first off the claim and looks next best here. (5) HIGHLAND TARTAN is the best closer in here and if early battling materializes he could be the one to roll by late; using. (8) BETTER ART is another that should be closing late and passing horses down the lane to grab a share.

Race 10

(6) SANDBETWEENURTOES was flying late last time after missing three weeks. She should be put into this race much earlier leaving from a better post in a smaller field. (7) BEDROOM CONFESSIONS was a game winner for the 2nd time in a row and she may offer a decent price here. (2) WRANGLER MAGIC took a big shuffle last week which is unlikely to be repeated in this short field; using. (3) OUR HOT MAJORETTE will likely revert back to a closing style here and come on late for a share.

Race 11

(1) VICTORIA SEMALU lasted longer on the front end last time now she gets to drop one class. She should be prominent early here and could win off a pocket trip in a race where there are few leavers evident. (3) CALL ME MAYBE raced better off a short break and is another that could emerge late off an inside following trip here. (9) LADY JEN steps up off two solid wins and she isn't impossible here. (2) BAROCKEY should set the pace early and she would be tough late if allowed to take any breathers. (6) ST LADS PENNY LANE rarely loses ground late and she should be closing for a share here.
