Best Bet: BET ON BRETT (4th)

Spot Play: LOOKIN ATA WINNER (2nd)

Race 1

(4) A DOOZY exits the Pure Ivory series where she raced decently and now faces easier here; slight nod. (10) JILONA looked like a winner last week after making two moves, only to be nailed late by the big chalk that broke then made a big recovery. She is a contender here despite the post. (8) HILARIOUS HONEY showed significant improvement last time and is one to consider for exotic bets. (7) A WHOLE LOT OF SUGAR has faced some decent competition in Grassroots races so far and she could find these easier.

Race 2

(2) LOOKIN ATA WINNER provided a stern challenge to a big favorite here on Friday night and didn’t stop badly despite not being able to clear to the front. If he goes here, he should prove tough. (5) NOTETOSELF HANOVER should show a lot more here back with non-winners of two company. (6) THE AVENGER tripped out to break his maiden and a similar journey isn’t out of the question here; using. (8) THINK AGAIN paced almost two seconds faster than his life’s mark in his August 19th qualifier; using.

Race 3

(6) CAMERON HILL raced well vs. her elders last week and now meets her own age group here again. She should be a big factor. (2) JANDERSON’s only loss came when she miscued early. She is an obvious major factor here. (7) MOUNTAIN OF LOVE has some of the continent’s rookie trotting leaders in his company lines from the Meadowlands; consider. (1) REACH THE PEAK comes off a solid 2nd in an OSS Gold dash and he should get another decent trip here.

Race 4

(5) BET ON BRETT has been facing the best 2-year-old pacers in the country and now meets a field that should be much more to his liking. Expect a more aggressive approach from this colt here. (1) BRAVE WORLD finished well last time and he may be figuring things out; using. (4) MR VARSITY is a 1/2 to four winners and he brought $80K at the Lexington sale; consider. (8) SOCCER HANOVER showed some late interest at Grand River last week and he can close for a piece of this, too.

Race 5

(7) STYLISH BEACHWARE got stacked up on too much cover last time and she couldn’t pass them all late. She should get a better trip here, and a better result. (3) DIXIE LULLABY has been solid in this class and her potent late kick is sure to come into play again here; using. (1) SEAWIND KERRY goes for trainer Brealey, who has been somewhat quiet at this meet, but keep in mind he has popped with this mare at a big price before. (8) JANETTES IMAGE can’t be ignored with her excellent record so far.

Race 6

(6) DOMEDOMEDOME may not have liked the wet track at Georgian Downs last time but she fits well here and should be prominent if that miscue was an anomaly. (5) MY REVENUER should get a better start here leaving from the middle of the gate; using. (8) FORK has seen better days, but if he is going to wake up, this will be the spot with the drop to the lowest conditioned level. (1) VICS ROYAL LADY has a shot to make some noise from close range here.

Race 7

(1) PRETTYNDANGEROUS was a sharp winner the last time she was in for a tag and she is likely to go to post as an overlay here; slight nod. (7) THREE PINK BOWS exploded with a new lifetime-best performance last week. She looks like the one to beat. (8) LADY JEN was sluggish at Grand River last week but if she comes close to reproducing her mile from two starts back, she will be very tough in here. (10) LEAVING A LEGACY brings good form back from Georgian and trainer Weller is always dangerous with these types; using.

Race 8

(9) TOY IS OURS showed some ability last year before being laid up due to gait issues. He can go forward now that he has a clean line on his card and may offer a big price. (4) SCOTTIES SPIRIT showed big improvement last time and is worth adding to Pick 4 tickets. (3) MOONLIGHT COCKTAIL couldn’t repel the winner in the third 1/4 last time, but her good early speed should play well here. (10) HONOR ABOVE ALL missed 17 days between starts last time and now returning to a 7-day cycle he should improve.

Race 9

(3) LINDY BEACH qualified faster on August 13th than most of these race, which gives him top billing here. (7) MAD MAD WORLD qualified well here on August 9th and this $30K Lexington purchase looks like he can be a threat right away. (6) SOUTHWIND SAVAGE closed okay last time and should be good for a piece of this. (4) CHALKY has been taking a lot of air at Grand River and sticking around for a share. He can take a smaller piece of the pie here.

Race 10

(8) GRANA PADANNO takes a big class plunge here and he should be fit enough with two tighteners under his belt now; top call. (3) NEILS GOLDEN GIRL put a big effort in from the worst post last time. She merits Pick 4 consideration off that effort and the move inside here. (6) DEWEYKEEPUMNWHY steps up off a win but he should be passing many of these down the lane. (5) TORTOLA SUNRISE rarely gets bet these days but he can threaten these from close range. (10) HUBBY NUMBER ONE was victorious the last time he was in this class but this post will likely limit him to a minor share here.
