Race 2

(6) UNLIMITED WINNER qualifier was huge, first race of the year was huge and he will tough to beat in here. (1) HARD ROCK TRIXIE has the rail and ships back after two beaten favorite efforts. (3) FIFTY JOULES broke at the start in last. Can land a share if he stays flat.

Race 3

(8) BALLYKEEL MIKE won going away two back but was uncovered a long way in last to just miss. Beaten favorite should closed well in here and the price should be decent from the post. (2) LEGACY CHIP fits very well in here and is the one to fear. (5) KING TRUT has speed and has been battling out of town.

Race 4

(2) MARIGOLD BLOOM seeks fourth straight and should be hard to beat. (1) STAR MASTER FOX has the rail and speed enough to stay close. (8) REAL SILVER has been impressive winning last two on front end but has to overcome the post.

Race 5

(5) CONTINUANCE has only one win lifetime but it is one more than anyone else has. Last two have been decent and she looks like the best of a bad lot. (2) PRETTY BOY CASH showed life two back and could get lucky with covered trip. (1) REALLY A LADYS MAN has the rail and made a move in a qualifier two months back that could win this.

Race 6

(5) BOOYAH TJ has been bet like the dickens in all recent outs and has given it a try in all with a couple of wins on the card. (1) LUCKY DANISH made a big move in last but flattened out. Better timing and a little luck could get it done from the rail. (8) AL MARK SNEAKY PETE just missed a wire job last week and gets long look despite the post.

Race 7

(9) CARRINO sucked along in the pocket in last and could not get there. Beaten favorite has enough to escape the second tier and thrown in some good last quarters in recent outs. Could get it done on best. (5) HES THE CHIP was used hard in last and stay close to the wire. (3) WARNERS SPEEDY ART just missed in last and cannot be ignored in well matched field.

Race 8

(1) ASHLEYS BAD BOY showed life last two and draws well. (2) BLOOMINGDALE races second over the course since shipping back from The Meadows and could be tighter this time out. (7) RACE ME ROCKY has speed and can be tough if he gets to the top. Post hurts a bit but do not ignore.

Race 9

(2) DEFTONES was parked for life in last. Faces weaker and should be the one. (3) BAY SHARK was parked too long two back. Put in a front end effort in last and ran out of gas. (4) BOURBANS BEST was second best in last and best efforts makes him tough.

Race 10

(2) WESTERN RANGE beaten favorite was second best in last and faces same kind. (1) A J CRESS was third best in same race and can get lucky. (3) U BETTOR WATCH OUT has weakened last two with victory a possibility. Fits this level in well matched group but has to get tougher.

Race 11

(2) ICONIC STYLE moves in second this level after modest drop. (1) ABBYS LUCK draws well after some no shot trips. (4) TERROR OF THETRACK gave a good account of himself at 75-1 in last and should not be overlooked.

Race 12

(4) MASTEROFCEREMONIES closed well two back but broke in last with chance for a piece. If he stays flat, he has a chance in field begging to be beat. (6) CDS ELDORADO sucked along in the pocket in last and held second.  Has shown some life last two and earns a look. (2) FORTUNE KING draws well and should stay close but won just once last season.

Race 13

(5) MARTIN HANOVER was parked the mile in last and did well for first time lasix. Should give a good account of himself. (3) AUTO PILOT went down the road in last and gave way late. (8) LATE NIGHT TERROR was all over the track in last but picked off a few with late wide rally.

Race 14

(2) PRAKASMAKESPERFECT jogged in last setting new life mark. Too sharp to look past. (4) SAMS YANKEE chased the top one home with a wide rally but was second best. (1) TALLYDEGA KID has the rail and can be close when it counts. Will have to step up the late rally some but the rail can sometimes be just the incentive that is needed.

Race 15

(5) INGLORIOUS MUSTARD two back was big inside rally to just miss. Drops, pops. (3) MISTYS DIGNITY faces weaker and earns look to land share. (1) STUBBYSLEISUREGUY has the rail and will be close when it counts.
