Best Bet: JETTINS DRAGON (11th)

Race 1

(2) SANTO DOMINGO draws inside and raced very well last week. He was timed in 1:54 4/5 to finish second and remains at the same level. (6) AQUANILLA has won three of her last four starts and moves onto this circuit. She's versatile and has a good record this season. (7) LESLIE ROAD has a terrific closing kick and likely will offer a price. If he's not too far back, he's capable of hitting the board.

Race 2

(8) PANONGAHELA gets class relief and has posted a pair of terrific final quarters. He comes out of Menary's barn and likely will offer a low price. (2) DAVIDS DREAM draws inside and comes out of McNair's ban. He won in this class last week and won three of his last four. (4) MANCHESTER has the speed, but will need the trip. He's a better horse than he's been showing and will provide a price.

Race 3

(6) HLDONTGHTTOYURDRMS has a good record this season, has some time off and appears ready to go again. He posted three solid qualifying efforts and is capable of dropping more seconds. (4) CHARMED LIFE has raced very well this season and has gotten better towards the end of the year. She was timed in 1:53 in each of her last two starts. (8) LEGZY also has been at her best towards the end of this season. She's versatile, but appears to be at her best when she's put in the race.

Race 4

(4) PEENIE has won two straight and comes out of Johnson's barn. He adds lasix in here and has a good win record this season. (7) WINNING DREAM has the speed and drops in class. He gets a better post and shouldn't be too far back. (1) SHIPPS XPECTANCY gets the rail and has terrific gate-speed. He comes out of McMaster's barn and gets Davis, Jr. in the bike.

Race 5

(7) O U GUS moves into the Fellows barn and that's the main reason for my selection. He has some back class and is capable in this bottom condition. (2) WHEELS draws inside and comes out Menary's barn. He qualified well and gets Waples in the bike. (3) P L FANTASTIC won in this class two starts back and is very versatile. He should get a clean trip from the inside post three.

Race 6

(3) KINDLY POET has near $1 million made and all kinds of back class. He draws well and drops in class. (4) THEPANINSULAHOTEL has a good record this season, drops in class and draws well. (7) HARD TO MACH raced terrific two starts back and failed as the favourite last week in this class. He comes out of McNair's barn and might offer a fair price.

Race 7

(6) SHELBYS COBRA gets major class relief and is a top threat in here. He comes from a top barn and certainly has the speed. (7) FRANCESCHETTI has won three straight and certainly has the speed to go with this class. He moves onto this circuit and has a good record in 2013. (10) PISTON BROKE paced In sub-1:50 last week with a sizzling :25 4/5 final quarter. He draws outside once again and is very capable.

Race 8

(6) COOL ROCK has been knocking on the door in his last two starts and is due for a win. He has a terrific closing kick and if he's not too far back, he's got a great shot. (8) RED BUGLER hasn't been worse than third in his last six starts. He's a logical option in this class. (9) LIFEIMITTATESART has been racing much better in his last four starts. He's been finishing his miles well and gets Davis, Jr back in the bike.

Race 9

(6) PROTEGE SEELSTER comes out of Johnson's barn and has been racing at his best in his last three starts. He raced very well last week to finish third and once again is a top threat. (1) CHINA PEARLS moves back onto this circuit and won in this class just three starts ago. She reunites with Waples and gets the rail. (2) BRUCE THE BRAVE doesn't like to win, but has a good closing kick at the end of the mile. He draws inside and has been racing much better in his last two.

Race 10

(6) ELLIS PARK has won each of his last three starts. He has a terrific closing kick and although he faces a tough group, he's still a top threat. (2) SPARKY MARK moves into the Adams barn, who has a high average. He draws inside, gets Davis in the bike and has terrific gate speed. (1) UP THE CREDIT drops in class and has been well traveled this season. He has the speed and should appreciate the class drop.

Race 11

(8) JETTINS DRAGON hasn't missed the board yet this season from eight starts. He just missed last start from a post 10 start and likely will get a lot of attention in here. (4) BLUE CHIP SUNSHINE draws inside and has hit the board in four of his last five starts. He's got a good record this season and closes very well. (6) THORN IN YOUR SIDE won in this class last start in gate-to-wire fashion. He has a good record this season and is very versatile.

Race 12

(8) DUE WEST HANOVER was my top pick last start and got a tough trip. He hasn't won a race in two years and maybe I'm looking for a miracle. (3) PUTNAMS ATTACK draws inside and has a good record this season. He comes out of Auciello's barn and finished second in this class last week. (7) D GS WOODSTOCK has hit the board in three of his last four starts. He put in a sub-par effort last week, but comes out of Johnson's barn and has a good record this season.
