Spot Play: AINT THREE OK (5th)

Race 1

(5) WHISKEY LINDY is related to several winners and looks ready for action based on his qualifiers, although at press time, the driver that is listed has only 29 lifetime victories; slight nod. (2) KING OF MAGIC had a rough trip vs. a colt that is now three-for-three. He should be prominent here. (1) STORMONT DUNDAS is getting closer to that elusive maiden win and he rates highly in this group. (6) SIBSON sports a quick last 1/4 in his most recent start which could mean a better showing is coming here.

Race 2

(6) QUADRANGLE really turned it up in his September 6th qualifier; call at first asking. (5) MAJESTIC STREAK was narrowly beaten by a colt two back that then won a Grand Circuit race in his next start. If he stays flat, he should be right there vs. these. (3) DANCER HALL - an $18K Lexington purchase - had good late speed to offer in his lone qualifier. He can contend here right away. (8) LINDY THE GREAT is another colt making his debut that looks promising but he may be relegated to taking a smaller share from out there.

Race 3

(7) WALTZKING HANOVER was grabbed by leading trainer Moreau when pacing his second consecutive sub-1:51 mile. He should be very tough in here at a short price. (1) GIVE EM HECK has been very consistent and could trip out behind the choice here. (2) JENKINS CREEK was a winner back in claimers last week. He fits much better in for a tag and he should contend here. (3) CALGARY SEELSTER is another that races better when tagged. He should be part of the pace here and stick around for a share.

Race 4

(1) GRACIES PARADE just failed to get the job done when dropped to this level last week and beaten by one that tripped out. She can make amends here. (5) YOUR MY SECRET has won on this circuit previously and her last two lines from outer posts on a 1/2-mile track should probably be overlooked. She can offer some Pick 4 and Pick 5 value here. (6) SOLID QUEEN is another interesting shipper that shows some good miles at the Meadowlands last winter; using. (7) MYSTERY WRITER faces easier here and is another that should be considered for multi-race bets.

Race 5

(8) AINT THREE OK when last seen was making an explosive stretch move while running in so badly that it likely cost her the win. Perhaps she has everything straightened out now as she qualified well; top call. (1) VINTAGE BABE continues to race well and she will be a threat here starting from the inside. (7) AMBROSIA SEELSTER showed promise last winter and returns boasting a 26 3/5 kicker in her qualifier. She should contend here immediately. (6) DANISH N COFFEE seems destined for another slice here.

Race 6

(6) CLASSIC VENTURE was aggressively handled last week and he powered his way to a strong win; call to repeat. (5) LITTLE RED CHEV should be out closer to the pace here; that's where she does her best work. (3) RENEGADE MAGIC beat the choice two starts back and should be closer to the front earlier here than she was last week which makes her dangerous. (1) SASS is quite capable, but, he could also be prepping for an upcoming OSS Gold event; minor share predicted.

Race 7

(5) OUT OF SIGHT drops back into face maidens here and gets a good post to work with; top call. (10) VINTAGE BOOK faces straight maidens for the first time and she is worth a long look - even from out there. (3) JUST TOO SPOILED continues to close quickly on the end of her miles. She will get there soon. (9) LAURA HILL is a full-sister to double millionaire Rocklamation, but she may need one starting from out there.

Race 8

(2) DEWEYKEEPUMNWHY faced much tougher in his last start now drops back to where he should be more competitive; slight nod. (5) ADVERSITY drops out of the same race and he should be heard from here. (7) ITS HUW YOU KNOW had one race over the track vs. tougher and he broke early. He could show a lot more here. (8) NEILS GOLDEN GIRL took a new life's mark last week vs. easier. She will probably take a minor share here vs. this tougher group.

Race 9

(3) SPORTSMANSHIP woke up big time first time out for Auciello; call to repeat. (2) MAC RAIDER took a new life's mark winning his last start then vet scratched. If he is sharp enough, he should contend here. (6) COBALT MAN steps up off a narrow win here. He can take a smaller share. (9) HIDDEN POTENTIAL had a horrendous trip last time and didn't fade until late in the mile. He has upset possibilities but he needs to work out a trip from out there.

Race 10

(6) BLAYDE HANOVER went a tough first-over trip vs. a classy rival last week and he finished a strong second. He looks best here. (5) CAROLINA HURRICANE also faced tougher last week and he is the other one you need in the Pick 4 cash leg. (1) PRINT MEDIA races better when starting from the inside and he too faces easier here; consider. (2) KINGSLEY B rarely misses a check and he should grab a share here. (8) SPORTS VISION will be closing from far back as always and he should pass most of these late.
