Race 2:

Monte Man (#2)
Gets a positive trainer switch from Gary Contessa to Steve Asmussen.
Kendrick Carmouche should have him more forwardly placed, which has worked for him in the past.
Has had minor trouble in some recent starts and is in better form than it appears.
7-2 on ML

Race 7:

Big Guy Ian (#2)
The Pace Projector is predicting he will be on the lead in a situation favoring the front-runner.
John Toscano gets an 89 TimeformUS Trainer Rating first off the claim.
Was compromised by racing two wide against a strong rail bias last time.
10-1 on ML

Race 8:

Hyde Park Express (#6)
Has run the fastest turf speed figures in the field.
Improved recent dirt races suggest that she's in good form coming into this return to turf.
Low-profile connections should ensure that she's a square price.
