Race 2

(5) FERRARI SENA hasn't missed the board in two seasons, comes from Moreau's barn and just missed last week. (6) AMERICAN IN PARIS has an excellent record this season and provided the upset last week in this class. (1) MARLEE B has hit the board in two of her last three starts, gets the rail and has a patented late kick in this short field.

Race 3

(5) TAG UP AND GO is fresh off a gate-to-wire score and has been much better in his last two. (2) PRAYER SESSION draws inside and posted a strong open-length qualifier in his latest. (6) THE ONLY ONE was a game third last week. He tends to race inconsistently, but is worth a look if the price is right.

Race 4

(9) MR BIG HEAD has been the king of this class for the last four weeks. (8) GENESEE has been knocking on the door in each of his last four starts and comes from Fletcher's barn. (10) RAYS SAN is capable of overcoming post 10. He comes from Moreau's barn and has hit the board in two of his last three starts in this class.

Race 5

(7) LIGHTS GO OUT exploded last week en route to victory and is capable once again for MacDonell & Boyd. (2) BEACH GAL comes out of the Fan Hanover, faces older mares and might offer a fair price. (9) GREYSTONE LADYLIKE has been much better in recent outings, is fresh off a win and capable of the class jump.

Race 6

(1) ORDER BY COMMANDER gets Jamieson aboard, draws the rail and drops in class. (4) LAKEFIELD draws much better this week and drops in class. He hasn't raced well this season, but enters the bottom class. (7) MIDFIELD MAGIC has been knocking on the door at a higher level in his last two and should be a top threat in here with his back class.

Race 7

(4) HIT AND GIGGLE A has posted back-to-back wins in comfortable fashion and will be a top threat at this higher level. (8) MICHAELS POWER has all kinds of back class and qualified well in his latest. He'll look to regain top form. (5) HES A SENSATION has hit the board in three of his last four starts and remains at the same class.

Race 8

(8) MACHAL JORDAN dropped in class last week and just missed. He enjoys racing off a helmet and is a much better horse than he's been showing as of late. (3) LEAFS AND WINGS draws inside, gets Jamieson in the bike and will offer a low price in here. (6) BLUE CHIP SUNSHINE comes from the Moreau barn, moves onto this circuit following a win and may offer a fair price.

Race 9

(7) NICKLE BAG faces much needed class relief. He has all kinds of speed to offer and draws a better post. (4) WORLD AWAY shows the speed, gets a good post and has all kinds of back class. (3) STOMPIN TOM CREEK draws inside and has a good record this season. Davis, Jr. is back aboard and may offer a price.

Race 10

(7) STATE TREASURER has won five of seven this season and been the king of this circuit for the past few weeks. (6) EVENIN OF PLEASURER has been the picture of consistency this season and has risen to the top ranks. He continues to impress and is on his game right now. (3) ELLIS PARK will make his sixth start of the season, draws inside and has hit the board in each of his last two.

Race 11

(6) FOOL ME ONCE hasn't been at his best yet this season, but enters a low class and should be more suitable in here for his liking. (1) CHAMPAGNE PHIL gets the rail and has been a threat in this class in each of his last two starts. (2) UPFRONT HOOSIERBOY also draws inside and is fresh off a win. He has back class to offer and comes from the Johnson barn.
