Spot Play: WEST RIVER VICTORY (3rd)

Race 1

(3) ROYAL BRIEFING comes off a nice victory and just needs to ration out his speed against another suspect bunch.  (5) NINO MARINO gave a decent effort last out but needs a good setup to hit the top spot.  (8) LINUS B WORTHY picks up the top driver and takes a significant drop in class, however the well bred gelding has a tough task starting from the far outside.

Race 2

In a wide open race full of question marks (5) BLUEBIRD JETTART should offer a nice price with a low percentage pilot and could be sitting in a nice spot late.  (3) WHOSBEST has just been racing evenly but does drop to the bottom level.  (8) STORM CRUISDER lightly-raced pacer has room to improve in his third career start.

Race 3

(1) WEST RIVER VICTORY took heavy tote action out of the blue last week just missing.  The trotter bumps up in class but can score a victory with a similar effort.  (2) FASHION GLIDE raced big last start from a tough post.  The 5-year-old mare keeps the top driver and could be the horse to beat.  (5) GET PACKIN veteran trotter has not been sharp for a new barn; command a price.

Race 4

(1) ALL PRO HALL gets the best post and is one of few who's been competitive at this level.  (7) EMERALD EXPRESS gets sent out for a hot trainer and should have some room to improve against much weaker.  (4) ARTISTIC DREAMER owns gate speed and should benefit from the top driver.

Race 5

(2) WESTERN RANGE gets sent out second start for hot connections and will be used aggressively.  (7) ACTIVATOR really lucked out last start with a breaker allowing the pacer to secure a pocket trip.  The 14-year-old will offer low value and will need a good spot off the gate.  (5) CYCLONE ASHORE should be closer turning for home and is one of few threats in the race.

Race 6

(1) TAX FREE will look to take no prisoners getting the jump on his main competition; fires early.  (7) OPENING NIGHT GEM well bred pacer has the most upside by far but will need to step his game up.  (6) PRETTY BOY CASH looks to be getting back on track but needs more; use underneath.

Race 7

(7) ELEVEN MADISON nice-looking trotter has tons of room to improve in his second lifetime start off a huge first effort.   (2) UF CASHNMYCHIPS filly also has some upside showing a good burst of speed last out; threat.  (5) GOVERNMENT OFFICAL went from loaded with trot to stopping last week.  If the gelding can duplicate his prior effort he's in the mix.

Race 8

In a weak field with few contenders (3) AMERICAN PILOT makes his first start for a new trainer and picks up a huge driver change.  (2) VANISCAPE drops to the bottom level and should be closer turning for home.  (4) EXPRESSO FORTE is capable of a good effort and will offer a monster price.

Race 9

(5) EMBRACE PEACE mare picks up top driver and looks to have some of the kinks worked out based on her qualifier and start.  (7) UNLIMITED WINNER has beaten better and just needs a trouble free trip for a piece.  (6) CHIPSWINGINGSTAR seven-year-old trotter could need a start but will offer a big price in a weak field.

Race 10

(4) DANNYS MAN was close last out against better; threat.  (3) JACK ATTACK BROWN has a tough time winning but should have a shot against an evenly matched field.  (1) ON THE GREEN needed his last start and gets the best post.

Race 11

(4) TEXAS RIDGE picks up the top driver off a huge drop in class.  (2) NEELY SPRING is likely the only threat to the top choice but needs to stay trotting.   (1) ANNIE'S MASTER looks terrible on paper but could be ready for a better effort; use underneath.

Race 12

(5) STRONSKI just missed at this level last out; fires early.  (8) GET GOIN MEL needs to find a way into the race but probably owns the most ability in the field.  (3) THE CLASSIC Z TAM faces significantly weaker and has jumped up with big efforts from time to time.

Race 13

(6) QUIK GROOM gets sent out for a top trainer and the best driver.  (9) KIASMA faces much weaker competition.  The pacer gets sent out for an inconsistent trainer but is capable of scoring a victory with a good effort.  (3) HERES HOOTER really raced well last start but bumps back up in class.

Race 14

(6) FOREVER GOOD will be tough to beat with an easy early lead.  (1) JACK FINN takes a huge drop in class with the best post.  However the pacer has just been racing evenly; command a price.  (2) J F COOKIN rarely wins but does pick up the top driver at the bottom level; threat.

Race 15

(6) LISLEA MORAN faces much weaker and should be closer turning for home; big chance.  (9) CMR WINDMACH pacer makes his third start back off a layoff and raced well last out.  (1) MAJOR MIKE has been better for a new barn but is best used underneath.
