SPOT PLAYS AND LIVE LONGSHOTS

Saratoga Race 4, (2:31 ET)

A little icing on the Ramsey’s record could be in order here as win-savvy 9yo CAYAMBE (#10, 4-1) makes his debut under the familiar red-and-white while well-drawn toward the outer with Rosie aboard. Former SoCal denizen knows all about the turf and figures a little sharper than normal off the nearly 8-week layoff; stalks-and-sees until it’s time to go to work. –Marty McGee

 

Saratoga Race 4, (2:31 ET)

JAGATI's (#5, 10-1) lone turf effort, as a first timer, was compromised by slow start, which hasn’t occurred since; appears versatile enough to get good position here.-Chuck Kuehhas

 

Saratoga Race 6, (3:34 ET)

Before being out-sprinted early last time, FARCE (#2, 10-1) won her first two turf starts, and the June 27 score came at the expense of four rivals that won their next outings. Favorably drawn for her local bow on the inner course, which has been quite speed favoring lately.-Dave Litfin

 

VULNERABLE FAVORITES

Saratoga Race 2, (1:30 ET)

With easily the top Beyer earned in debut, coupled with the troubled trip, ILLAPA (#8, 3-1) is very likely to go off a solid favorite; many well-bred fillies here to use instead.-Chuck Kuehhas

 

Saratoga Race 5, (3:02 ET)

Been a pretty tough Spa meet for NPZ with just 4 wins, and here’s one he’ll refit with a set of blinkers. It’s a move that perhaps smacks of a little desperation, as POW WOW WOW (#5, 5-2) has gone 7 straight races without being able to get through this first-level alw. condition; might just need a little softer spot than what she’ll find today in the form of D’princess, Currency Union, et al. –Marty McGee
