Spot Play: HIGH FASHION MEL (7th)

Race 1

(1) CAMPS BAY showed marked improvement last week and could step up again and take this in her 2nd start out of the Zeron barn. (2) DOUBLE OLIVES was impressive coming off a short break, looks to have her gait issues solved and is the one to beat here. (5) PASSIONATE BEAUTY was a solid winner in the maiden class but may find the top two tougher here.

Race 2

(4) ADAYMER SEELSTER makes her third start off a long break and did well here at this meet last winter; surprise package. (5) LIGHTS GO OUT struggled to keep up to her cover last week. She likely gets rolled early here and tries to take this group from start to finish. (6) WILDCAT MAGIC didn't fire last time perhaps due to the nature of the track. She should rebound with a better effort here.

Race 3

(8) STRONG HOPE broke stride and had broken equipment last time while making a pretty good late move. Henry should send this one early this time which is when he gets his best results. (3) MEGO MOSS is more than capable of competing at this level if he can stay trotting. (4) BROADWAY PRINCE looks best of the rest.

Race 4

(7) ST LADS PENNY LANE is the only class-dropper in this field which could be just what the doctor ordered for her. She will likely try to wire this group. (5) EAT ME UP has been racing well for the leading trainer out of town and merits inclusion on Pick 4 tickets here. (10) FOOLISH MIND won from the 10-hole two back then faced a mare that was making a big class drop and couldn't go with her. She wouldn't be a big surprise here.

Race 5

(7) BETIT TO GET IT has been razor-sharp in winning her past two starts; call to threepeat. (8) BROOKDALE SHADOW had good speed both early and late in her mile last week and should threaten here. (6) NAT A VIRGIN drops in class and is capable of threatening these despite her inconsistency.

Race 6

(10) BOY MEETS GRILL improved sharply last week, retains Filion and will be a good price; call to upset. (2) JOSEPH GERARD won several times in this class this summer and debuts for Zeron here. He's dangerous from close range. (1) NUMBER ONE HUBBY ships in with sharp form and debuts for Montini; another to consider.

Race 7

(7) HIGH FASHION MEL paced a 27 flat third 1/4 last week in her return from a break. That should have her primed perfectly here for a big speed try. (2) LICULIA A has been facing better at Yonkers and is the one to beat debuting for the top trainer. (8) ABBIJADE HANOVER has been flying home the past two starts and should be vaulting past most of these late in the mile.

Race 8

(5) OCEANVIEW BINDI tried it first up against a sharp repeat winner last week. She does better when cutting the mile and will likely be sent by Drury here. (4) SHUTTHEFRONTDOOR was a following third in the same mile and should also enjoy ditching the winner of that mile who moved up in class tonight. (1) DIANNA SANTANNA should beat a few of these off the gate which would make her job easier considering her preferred closing style.

Race 9

I will continue to ride (3) ARTISTIC MADISON until I find a reason not to. She is as sharp as a racehorse can get right now. (2) BET YA was a strong third to the choice last week and could try for the front or pocket early here where she is typically more effective. (7) MS MAC N CHEESE had a perfect trip last week but could not pass the choice late. She's sharp but will likely be closing off cover here this time.

Race 10

(2) WHISTYS PARADISE uncorked a wild rally last week to win going away; call to repeat. (5) CYNDALIANNE DUC was hung out making her move and raced strongly to be 2nd to the choice. She could turn the tables with a better trip. (6) JENNA CASIMIR is a good bet for the bottom of the tri and/or super.

Race 11

(2) SHOW SOME LEG moves inside and should get a more aggressive steer here. Slight nod in a wide-open finale. (9) HAMMER DOWN can get a big piece of this if she can overcome her post. Henry is one of the best getting them off the gate, so it's possible. (1) WINDSONG LINDSEY would be a big threat if she could duplicate her penultimate mile. (7) CLASSIC COMEDY didn't leave the rail last week and is capable of better. (4) LDL GEM was strong first up last week and could better this placing.
