Race 1

(7) SETANTA was showing improvement here then tried an OSS Gold at London and broke stride late. He could bounce back at a square price and notch his maiden-breaking win. (1) CINCINNATI MISS followed an impressive winner the route in her season’s debut, which was by far her best performance to date; the main danger. (5) MARKETS UP was a lot faster than ever before in his May 29 qualifier and is interesting here on the barn change.

Race 2

(2) JUSTCALLMERONALD showed good speed last week but tired late. Returning to a 7-day cycle and dropping into a claimer should make him very tough here.  (10) HAVA KADABRA has been on a real roll and goes for Puddy off the claim. He is likely to face an early challenge from the choice if that one behaves. (6) JOSEPH GERARD has put two good miles in a row together and is likely for another share here.

Race 3

(6) DRINKSONTHEHOUSE showed improved late speed while passing horses behind a dominant winner. Moving to the middle of the gate should facilitate a better start and result here. (1) JENALEAH finished second in the same mile, showing big improvement over her debut. She’s the one to knock off here. (4) WHOSGOINGTOCATCHUS also exits the same race and is another contender in a wide-open dash.

Race 4

(2) LITTLE QUICK blasted through a timely opening in the stretch last week to win at 71/1. He may get a great pace scenario to chase here with so much speed lined up from the 5-hole out; call to repeat. (10) UNIQUE BARAN will take a lot of support off the Colin Johnson claim, but may get hung out early and softened up. (7) MACH TWO POINT SIX has been in great form out of town using various racing styles. He’s a contender here.

Race 5

(6) NOBLE POWER was visibly motoring late last week but it was too late. He gets to move to the middle of the gate here, which may be all it takes to get him in striking position earlier; top call. (4) COOL CREEK VALLEY had some traffic issues late in the same dash when finishing just ahead of the choice and rates highly here. (7) TYRONE ZOEY was a good third in the City of London Final and is another in with a chance.

Race 6

(5) FASHION MAVEN has shown rapid improvement since arriving on this circuit and last week’s win was easier than it looks on paper; call to repeat. (1) RATHER SWELL wasn’t far back of the choice but remains winless in 19 and it’s hard to say if he can turn the tables on the choice here. (7) RUSTYS OVERLOAD raced evenly in a rapid mile for the class and can be a late threat.

Race 7

(7) POWER MOVE finished behind three last week that would all likely be favored in here. Drury will be pointing to go right down the road with this one on the class drop. (9) FEISTY LOVE has been excellent in her past two and is in top form. (2) CAN I SAY has had two rough trips in the top class at Flamboro and should be prominent throughout.

Race 8

(1) LEGION OF BOOM raced well last week, considering it was only his second race in 5 weeks. He draws inside and should be prominent throughout here. (4) STAR COVER went a big trip from the 10-hole and was passed late by a big favorite. He will be tough. (2) BROTHER RANDY’s first trip over the big track was a solid effort and the winner of that one is a promising sort. He is in with a shot here, but will need a trip to beat both of the two above.

Race 9

(4) A MARCOU STORY was a sharp debut winner but in his next start carved out wicked fractions that understandably took their toll late. He should be very tough here from close range. (2) ABSOLUTLY OFFICIAL showed dramatic improvement last week and can go forward again here in his 4th lifetime start. (5) JET BLACK CADILLAC has improving form and can hit the exotics at a price here.

Race 10

(5) THE SHADOW KNOWS cut some big fractions off a two-week break in last week’s Grassroots and seems to hold a major pace advantage over this group; coast-to-coast. (3) MACH CODE woke up with a huge late burst last week but was aided by a following trip tracking a quick early pace. The pace set-up here looks much different but he can get up late for a share. (7) ANTAR PHIL raced decently enough vs. better last week to contend here. (8) REGAL SIGHT, 0-16, is likely for another minor share. (9) HP BUSHIDO DRAGJET went a big trip to take a new life’s mark at big odds here last week and should be respected.
