Tioga: Sunday 7/1 Analysis


MEET STATS: 30 - 98 / $168.00

Best Bet: SPECULATIVE EDGE (3rd)      Spot Play: VITAL SPEED (2nd)

Race 1

(3) ARTEMAX sports a bunch of seconds and 0 wins in 18 starts, but this is a really weak group. (2) JBS BEACH ISCAPE should flash his early speed and get a nice chunk. (6) TOTALLY PERFECT has been getting checks consistently.

Race 2

(5) VITAL SPEED gets a subtle class drop, but enough to make a major difference. (1) TWIN B MY WAY comes off a toss-out effort from post 7 at Buffalo. (4) KANJO comes in from Pocono in search of an easier spot and may have found it.

Race 3

(5) SPECULATIVE EDGE won easily as advertised last week. It seems that the time off agreed with this guy. (1) WINBAK DIMENSIONS should gun from the cones and protect his position. (6) SHEER BRILLIANCE usually races well at this level.

Race 4

(6) THAT’S JUSTICE seems to be slowly improving for this barn. New driver this week could be the difference maker. (7) KOMMANDER HAWK is better than that start last week. (5) ERICHS BEST faced a monster last time.

Race 5

(6) ART FOR ARTS SAKE should appreciate leaving the Meadowlands. (3) SAND SAVAGE chased nicely last week. (1) FORTY CARROTS gets some class relief; hard to toss. (7) BLUE ROCK has ability but hasn’t started since October.

Race 6

(6) RIGHT ON TIME looks like the one to beat on paper but really doesn’t excite me much. (5) WARRAWEE MONARCH drops again and gets a better post. I’d have to use him. (2) RAGING GRIN has won and raced well at this level in the past.

Race 7

(2) VY HANOVER brushed and crushed last time and looks like the favorite in here. (3) BUCK STOPS HERE finds a field without a ton of early speed. Perhaps she can steal this race. (6) BETTOR B GENUINE was solid two back but got stuck behind a slow pace last week. (1A) LOONEY DUNE is another with early speed.

Race 8

(3) KENDALL BLUE has dominated this series so far; again. (2) ALL MUNKY BUSINESS needs another gear to get past the top choice. If she falters, this is your mare. (6) FOUR DAMSALS has disappointed thus far but is capable. (8) LEAHS EX is stuck in post eight.

Race 9

(1) REFLECTION OF BLUE finds a pretty soft spot upon arrival and should be tough. (3) SWEET TIME gets some needed class relief out of series action. (2) NUTMEGS DAVEY ships over in form.
