Race 1

(9) POWERFUL MISSION won the only Grassroots race she contested. Let's make her an angle play on top in the opener. (1) LATE SHIFT has yet to win but she has been close in this class every time and she merits respect here. (6) MAN SHES HOT got hung out in the fastest part of the race at Hanover. She has been consistent in this class; using. (5) YOU CANT AFFORD ME closes quickly every time and is another to consider for Pick 5 wagers.

Race 2

(7) STUCK IN MY SPANKS closed with a remarkable rush in her August 5th qualifier and she should prove much the best in here if she stays flat. (2) INNER DRIVE has won three straight Grassroots races in a row and is the next logical contender if the choice blows up. (8) JILONA gets Henry back here and can improve at a price. (1) TYMAL DECLAN appears likely to share off a following trip.

Race 3

(5) PURE KEMP motored home last time in a much-improved performance. She has to make a couple of lengths up on the favorite here, but has an upset chance. (4) DREAM TOGETHER is the one to beat at what will surely be a very short price here. (1) THE ERM is sure to be put into play earlier here in the final of this series. She is an exacta factor. (3) SOUTHWIND TESLA should grab a minor share at a minimum here.

Race 4

(4) ZAHARA SEELSTER closed quickly in her debut without threatening now she gets a positive driver change. Expect sharp improvement here. (8) COME WHAT MAY has faced much better and will take plenty of action here. She's no lock, but should be used on multi-race bets. (1) LITTLE HANOVER can improve off her debut race and she could change tactics here and look for a helmet to follow. (3) I WISH YOU WELL has displayed consistent late speed and she isn't impossible here.

Race 5

(6) ANIKADABRA is the only filly in this field that has trotted faster than 2 minutes. She should handle this group easily if she behaves. (5) CRYSTAL GUMDROP was impressive in her debut then broke in her most recent start. She looks next best off that initial start. (3) MAJESTIC WANDA seems to have things figured out now. She should share here. (1) HOPESWISHESNDREAMS should follow others here and stick around for a small slice.

Race 6

(1) PIRAHNA should be tough to beat here despite missing a week; top call. (3) BLAYDE HANOVER capitalized off a perfect trip and drive last time to win going away. He is a contender but notice that the choice handled him easily last time they met. (7) HEZA WORK OF ART got hung out the entire way last time an understandably stopped late. He could be dangerous here if he can clear early. (5) MOHEGAN BLUE CHIP seems logical to follow along and emerge late for a small cut here.

Race 7

(10) WILD ZINGER failed as a big chalk last week but perhaps missing a week had something to do with him being a bit dull late in the mile. Back in 7 days, I'll give him the nod. (9) SIR GALAHAD finished just behind the choice in a race he most likely needed. He can improve here; using. (5) SOUTHWIND SAVAGE was hung a long way to make the front last time. He is worth a look starting inside his main rivals here. (2) INTUITIVE WRITER had an impossible trip last time but kept passing horses; consider.

Race 8

(2) MUSICAL RHYTHM is the trotting king of Canada when he races here. He'll be very tough to upend here. (6) LOOKSLIKEACHPNDALE will likely revert to a closing style here which has worked well for him in the past. (7) WHISKEY TAX is in great form. He should make the ticket. (4) CASH FOR GOLD can wind up from the back turning home and pass a few of these.

Race 9

(7) MAGIC PRESTO looks tons the best in here off her OSS Gold form, but, prepare to take 1/5 if you are a win bettor. (4) ROYAL WITCH gets Lasix off a decent qualifier and can complete the exacta if she stays flat this time. (2) HAB FAITH is a consistent check earner who should make the ticket here. (5) WHOLE LOT OF SUGAR can stick around for a piece of this, too.

Race 10

(5) LINDYS TRU GRIT returns for a barn that can have one ready to fire a big shot off a break. I'll take a swing with him at what should be a square price. (3) OLYMPIC SON should be put into the race early here on the class drop; using. (7) CATCH THE DREAM is in good form and can win this if he is close enough to the leaders turning for home. (2) ELDORADO OF GOLD seems logical to make the Super or High-5 off a following trip. (9) BURNIN MONEY will be closing from far back and he should finish on the fringes.
