Best Bet: DANA DEAREST (7th)

Spot Play: ITS NO SECRET (2nd)

 

Race 1

(4) MAJESTIC GINGER was on cruise in her latest before making a break. She would have been a going-away winner and will look to redeem herself. (9) DAMFOOLRMILLIONAIRE will need to overcome post nine, but is fresh off a win and remains at this level. (5) ADVERSITY has hit the board in each of his last two starts, draws well and was recently timed in 1:54 2/5.

Race 3

(6) DOUBLEDOWN GASS scored a new career best last week and has won two of his last three. (1) FORK has been trotting very speedy miles and gets major class relief. (5) NOBLE FLIGHT hasn't missed the board in five starts and is a logical option for the triactor.
