Race 2

(8) HOLY MOLIE MAGGIE has been a consistent threat at this level for many weeks despite not winning. She's long overdue. (6) PROTEGE SEELSTER made a miscue in his latest, but was a game second two back in this class. He's classified right and comes from the Johnson barn. (1) JUSTALITTLEFASTER draws inside and closed extremely well in his latest. The rail is a good spot for him.

Race 3

(7) SWEETIE HEARTS was hard-used in the early stages of the mile last week. She draws outside in this short field and may offer a fair price. (1) QUADROPHENIA gets the rail, has won two straight and is capable of the class jump. (5) MARGIE has remained competitive in this division and gets Filion back in the bike.

Race 4

(2) SAUCY B might offer a fair price despite her back-to-back scores at Georgian; makes her way onto this circuit. (4) EMBRY SEELSTER enters the Tyrrell barn and has been a main threat at his level for many weeks. (6) VAL DI NOTO raced well in her latest, draws in the middle of the gate and has some upside to her.

Race 5

(8) CAVIART GRIFFIN was my top play last week but made a miscue. I'll back him again with a better post at the same class. He has the speed and raced terrific two back. (4) FINAL FANTASY comes from the Blais barn and drops into this maiden class. (3) MAGIC MADNESS gets a post two start, was timed in 1:57 4/5 last week and closed very well with a 28 4/5 final quarter.

Race 6

(3) EXHILATATED draws inside once again, has terrific gate speed and will offer a low price. (2) UNIQUE ROCK N ROLL drops out of the Town Pro Series, gets post two and comes from the McNair barn. (6) HARE TO ETERNITY raced very well in her latest to finish second at 22-1. A repeat effort makes her a top threat.

Race 7

(5) I WONDER WHY captured her first career win last week in impressive fashion and comes from top connections. (4) SOUTHWIND PARIS draws inside, comes from the Darling barn and was a game second in her latest qualifier. (3) MESMERIZE BLUECHIP won her qualifier with a terrific final quarter and comes from the Coleman barn.

Race 8

(6) DELIRIUM won last week impressively at the Grassroots level and should be able to handle this class. (5) MEA LILLEY MARK was a beaten favorite last week by less than a length. She draws well once again and remains a top threat in this field. (2) RIVETING has hit the board in each of her last two starts. She doesn't like to win, but is a good option for the triactor.

Race 9

(2) MUSCLE BABE has been the queen of this division so far this season and won at ease in her last two. (6) WHITE BECOMES HER put in a big effort in her latest at 18-1. She's hit the board in each of her five starts this season. (8) RIVETING ROSIE put her game face on last week with a third-place finish after starting off the year slowly.

Race 10

(3) DOCS HOSS has been a main threat at his level with two wins in his last three starts. (1) LITTLE QUICK draws the rail in this field and has an excellent closing kick. If he's well positioned, I like his chances. (5) WESTERN SENATOR raced much better in his last two. He's rounding into form and may offer a price.
