Race 1

(7) ME THE BOSS will get my top selection in this wide-open dash based on his consistency as of late. (2) OAKLEA WYATT gets major post relief this week and the gelded son of Amigo Hall likely will have his gate-speed utilized.

Race 2

(3) KINDOFABIGDEAL looks like the horse to beat based on last week's big effort in a new career best clocking of 1:51 4/5. (4) VIP BAYAMA was the other division winner last week for trainer Stephane Larocque with a time of 1:52 1/5. (8) SO BAD IM GOOD made his third start back last week and finished a game third for trainer/driver Joe Hudon.

Race 3

(7) TOTALLY RIPPED was terrific last week to win the opening round of the series considering he made a break behind the gate. (4) WARRAWEE PREFERRED made a miscue last start and will look to rebound for trainer Per Henriksen. (6) WINDSUN COBRA has completed the triactor in each of his last two starts and comes from a very capable trotting conditioner in Ben Baillargeon.

Race 4

(9) FRANKIES FIRST LUV gets my top selection in this very wide-open tilt. (10) MAJOR HANGOVER doesn't like to win races, but is a must-use for the exactor/triactor with her recent performances. (7) SAM doesn't have the best record this season, but shows the speed needed for this dash.

Race 5

(6) WARRAWEE PRINCE went gate-to-wire last week in the opening round of the Autumn Series and looks like the horse to beat in this dash. (9) HEADSAREGONNA TURN raced very strong last week as the gelding attempted to go gate-to-wire, but came up short and had to settle for second. (1) RAMAS LAST SON gets major post relief this week with the rail as the sophomore began from post 10 last week in the opening round.

Race 6

(2) ADDISON BAY put forth a much better effort last week in the debut on lasix for trainer Dave Menary. (3) WILDCAT HANNA generally offers a fair price and the daughter of Mach Three has hit the board in four of her last five starts. (5) BACK YARD BABY has hit the board in each of her last two starts, draws in the middle of the gate and has put together a solid record this season.

Race 7

(5) BOAT HOUSE ROW has been knocking on the door in each of her last three starts and is due for a win. (7) SWINGING CAMI comes from the Tony Alagna barn and shows a much improved effort last week at 16-1. (9) BAROCKEY draws outside for a third straight week, but offers terrific gate-speed whenever it's called upon.

Race 8

(8) BULLET POINT likely will be the favourite in this dash when the gates unfold and rightfully so. (2) LIGHTS GO OUT is the other class-dropping mare in this field and the daughter of Western Ideal also comes out of the Fillies & Mares Preferred level. (4) BET YA just missed last week at this level for driver Jack Moiseyev.

Race 9

(5) LETS LEAVEM gets major class relief this week as the gelding drops back down into the bottom end condition class on the WEG Circuit. (2) SMARTY PANTS drops in class this week for trainer Richard Moreau and can't be overlooked in this class. (6) THE MUSCLER looked like he was going to be the winner in his latest pari-mutuel start of Nov. 7, but self destructed down the stretch.

Race 10

(5) SHES DANGEROUS finished fourth at a higher level last week therefore should be more effective in this lower condition for trainer Tony Alagna. (3) VAL DI NOTO has been the victim of outside post positions as of late, but the bay filly draws inside this week and driver Roger Mayotte will likely make the most of it. (6) PAID IN CASH will make her debut for new trainer Ted Macdonnell and the daughter of Well Said has put together a solid record this season.

Race 11

(1) NINE LIVES HANOVER didn't start the best last week, but made up for it as she closed from ninth-to-third in this class. (9) J HIGH has been terrific as of late with two straight wins at this level. (8) REGAL LUCK has hit the board in each of her last three starts and raced very well last week to finish second at this level.
