Race 1

(2) SELLING THE DREAM did well to close some ground late in a quick mile last time. If she is in range turning for home here, she could mow them all down. (6) HOT SPOT HANOVER is as sharp as they come and is the one to upend at a short price. (8) POP GOES THE WEASEL exits the same race as the choice and she could go a long way on the lead if she blasts to the front early here. (10) MISS BABE DELIGHT had a nice rally going last week then hooked wheels in the lane. She would be my top pick here if she drew better.

Race 2

(5) MAKER A YANKEE has been racing well in higher classes down south and it's hard not to like her in this spot despite missing 17 days of action; top call. (6) AGENT DINOZZO jogged last time he raced in a non-winners of two, albeit vs. easier. He should be close here if he stays flat. (9) TUSCANS MEMORY wasn't disgraced in the Autumn series and he picks up the leading driver here; respect. (7) POLLAR HALL made a big move to the front and held on late last time. He could better this placing in his current sharp form.

Race 3

(2) SUNRISE AVENUE looks much the best in here off her solid effort in the Autumn series last out. (6) SWAN FOR LIFE has amassed a solid record south of the border and she should get out near the front here which always helps on this track. (8) NIGHT WITCH had a tough trip last time in her first start over the track and she returns quicker here; expect improvement. (1) ARE YOU IN is another to consider coming off a much-improved performance. He can hit the ticket here.

Race 4

(6) CASIMIR OPERATIVE was on way too much cover last week but she raced well considering. If she can beat a couple off the gate here, it could make a world of difference. (5) I WISH YOU WELL was razor-sharp when winning off a 3-month break last week. She has to be considered despite moving up in class. (2) LIFE GROOVE improved sharply for McNair as many do and he sticks here; using. (7) DRIFT PANIC exits the Autumn series and she could get sent hard off the gate here which could make her tough to overhaul late.

Race 5

(2) LINWOOD BEACHGIRL moves inside and returns quicker this time. Expect a wakeup effort. (9) GREYSTONE LADYLIKE moves up off an impressive win; using. (6) LOVETHEWAYYOULOOK looks ready for a good effort coming off a break; beware. (5) REGALLY READY will be closing for a smaller share as she often does.

Race 6

(2) MISS JONES SHOOTER made several moves to win last week now she gets an advantageous draw compared to her main rivals; call for the threepeat. (9) BRING ME DIAMONDS was shaded by the choice last time in a good effort. She should be right there again. (8) QUEENOFHEARTS made up a lot of ground on the choice late last time. She isn't out of this, but she needs some luck. (6) CHARMING HILL seems destined for a smaller share here.

Race 7

(2) LEGAL PROCESS closed well into a strong late pace in her comeback race. She should be all set for a top effort here. (6) VOODOO CHARM figures on the class drop here if she can keep it together this time. (3) TRUE REFLECTION had no shot with the trip she had last time. She should be much more of a factor this time from an improved post. (5) SHOW SOME LEG can threaten here leaving from the middle of the gate.

Race 8

(3) MASERATI SEELSTER set big fractions and kept going in this class two back. With the drop back to this level, a repeat of that performance is very possible. (5) SKY GUY is one of the better closers in here and he could get lots of early action to set up his late charge. (1) THINK AGAIN almost nailed the choice off a perfect pocket trip last time. A repeat of that trip is hard to predict from the tricky rail post. (6) WATT A FUNNY FACE paced out of his skin for the first 3/4's Monday night repelling several challenges then he outstaggered the field late. He will be a pace threat at a minimum here.

Race 9

(2) IMAGINE DRAGON waited too long to move last week then pulled into a sizzling third 1/4 and couldn't advance. If she is put into action earlier here, she should be right there. (4) DELIGHTFUL HILL races best near the lead. Is tonight the night she blasts off the gate? (3) WRANGLER MAGIC is always a threat on or near the lead; using in Pick 4 bets. (5) REQUEST FOR PAROLE steps up but is sharp and she could hit the ticket at a price here by passing foes late.

Race 10

(5) DEWAR AND SODA raced well in the Autumn series and she looks tough here facing easier. (4) STYLISH BEACHWHERE should benefit from the better post and get within range earlier. (9) QUEENOFTHEJUNGLE wasn't far behind the choice last time and she should take one of the smaller shares here. (7) COLLECTIVE WISDOM steps up off a nice score but she is unlikely to get a 30 2/5 second 1/4 this time. (6) MISTY DE VIE will be closing to finish on the fringes most likely.
