Race 1

(3) JORDIES HOPE was facing better before her vet scratch and her qualifier on August 5 was okay. I'll stab here in a race as wide-open as you will find. (8) DOCS HOLLYWOOD showed little when dropped to this class last week but she could benefit from a late pace collapse here. (2) MACH MAGIC is worth a look with the move inside, but she is still looking for her second win of the year. (10) DONTBRUISECARRIE has been racing against better and could crash the exotics at a price here.

Race 2

(1) MASS PRODUCTION won despite breaking early last time and gets a slight nod in one of several contentious sires stakes dashes tonight. This looks like a good night to spread far and wide for multi-race plays. (9) VERO AMORE BI was on his way to a win in his debut when he miscued. He can make amends if he stays flat. (6) DREAM MASSIVE has the best closing kick in here and is another you need to take a close look at for Pick 5 bets. (7) THEMANOFMYDREAMS is unbeaten when facing Grassroots competition so far. He isn't out of the picture despite facing tougher foes.

Race 3

(4) ROSE RUN SPEEDSTER failed as a big chalk last time out in Ottawa. I would expect a more aggressive drive and a better result here. (5) ROSBERG should appreciate the move back to the bigger track; using. (1) MISTER BIANCO - a $20K Forest City sale purchase - showed excellent late speed in his lone qualifier and can make an immediate impact here. (9) MANSIVE has already won a Gold and is another in with a shot.

Race 4

(7) ARTISTIC MADISON paced a 27 3/5 second 1/4 to make front last week then tired late. Facing easier again, she should be fit enough now to get the job done here. (10) STORM POINT flew home in her August 5th qualifier now she debuts for a new trainer; using. (6) BAROCKEY drops, but she has failed in this class a couple of times previously. She is likely to take a smaller share. (2) JUSTABIT MEAN has turned up her game the past two starts and she should share here despite the move up.

Race 5

(5) SOIREE SEELSTER produced a sensational late burst last week to reach up vs. lesser. She should be tough to hold off in her current form. (1) BID WRITER - fresh off a Battle of the Belles victory - is an obvious contender, but she may get over bet here. (7) TALBOT CHANEL has shown excellent late speed in all of her starts and is in with a legitimate upset chance here. (6) SOUTHWIND ION steps up off a sharp win and is another to consider in yet another race with several viable options.

Race 6

(2) CLARION HALL gets a post advantage on his main rival (10) LIFE WELL LIVED here and he may be able to get the jump on him and last to the wire. The latter is in great form and is an obvious contender to use on Pick 4 tickets. (6) TYCOON SEELSTER comes off a failed first-over bid, a trip which often produces some good-priced next out winners, consider. (3) NOBLE PRIZE almost blew up the tote board in his debut. He should be closing for a piece of this.

Race 7

(6) LINDWOOD BEACHGIRL outclasses this group and returning in a week this time should make her even tougher. (1) VOODOO CHARM was a decent third to the choice last week and is worth a shot for exacta plays here at what should be a decent payoff. (4) MUCH ADOO will look to take these all the way on the lead but will have a tough time holding off the choice. (2) MAYHEM SEELSTER beat aged mares two starts back and is another to consider for vertical wagers.

Race 8

(9) PASSPORT TO ART is from a dam that has produced all winners. She fetched $80K at the Lexington sale and looks ready here. (5) SOME ATTITUDE has fared well facing some good ones recently. She should contend here. (4) DARLINGS DRAGON had an adventurous trip when second to a very sharp winner last time; using. (6) AMERICAN HUSTLE should improve here and can close late for a share.

Race 9

(4) BLAMEITONTHENIGHT looks like a solid bet to keep her unbeaten string intact here, albeit at a short price. (9) AINT THREE OK was very game in defeat in The Battle of the Belles and she should be the main threat here. (1) YARIS BAYAMA was a good second to the choice last time. She should make the ticket here. (3) THORNE SEELSTER should contend for a minor award here.

Race 10

(9) DELIGHTFUL HILL is on a roll and will likely be a good price here stepping up into the top class. Ride her while she's hot. (8) SANDBETWEENURTOES made an aggressive move to seize control on the final turn last time and powered home. She is the one to beat. (3) MAPLELEA will be closing for a piece, as always. (7) MS MACH MAGIC has 11 slices in 19 tries this year and seems destined for another smaller share here.

Race 11

(7) STYLISH BEACHWARE had her win skein snapped last week but she can resume her winning ways here with her regular pilot back. (3) JUMP JIVE AND JAM rolled by the choice last week and is the main danger here again. (4) DIXIE LULLABY gets a positive driver change here. She is a threat and can offer some Pick 4 value. (6) BUTTERMILK HANOVER should be passing many of these late and take a share. (5) DOCS SAUSILITO moves inside and faces mostly easier. She could better this prediction.
