Race 1

(2) ABSOLUT SEELSTER shipped to Flamboro for two easy wins now returns with a recency edge on his foes while looking for five straight; top call. (7) LEGGS MATTER took a ton of action last time and he proved to be live but he had a horrendous trip. He can go much better here. (9) SWAN FOR DEE closed ground late last time vs. a tough winner. She should take at least a slice here. (1) PREMIER GLITTER also showed some late interest last time and she could better this placing.

Race 2

(8) COUGAR GAL had a terrible trip when starting from the second tier at London last week but she should be on a front-end mission here. (5) SHES A MANIAC comes in off a sharp win but has now missed more than a month's action; mixed signals. (2) RUMOUR MILL goes for the hot Allard barn here but is another that has missed more than a month's action. She should contend if she is tight enough. (9) ALEXAS HOPE fits better in this class and she can contend if she stays flat this time.

Race 3

(6) READY ANY TIME has been powering home but falling just short. A slightly better trip and a bit of luck gets her into the winner's circle here. (8) MAJOR MUSCLE could clear quickly vs. these, which would give her a decent chance, possibly at a square price. (3) WITHAHEARTTOMATCH steps up off a win where she converted off a sweet trip, but it's not hard to envision her getting a similarly good trip here. (5) STONEBRIDGE PEACE should be passing rivals late to take a slice.

Race 4

(3) KEYSTONE DYLAN drops back in for a tag and he should get a good pace setup here and pounce late. (9) MR MACH JIMMY couldn't withstand a rival's wicked third 1/4 brush last time, but he did show some grit to come again late. He could take these a long way. (8) TOP DESIRE is in great form and can't be dismissed here. (2) EAST END should be able to take a share off a following trip.

Race 5

(5) LOVETHEWAYYOULOOK, by not getting any checks in her last two starts, gets to take a big class drop here and she should be tough. (1) BERNADETTE moves inside and is an obvious contender here. (6) PRETTY HOT was a sharp winner in this class two back and she stayed active during the break racing in the top class at London. She's another obvious contender. (8) AINSLEYNOELLE will be heard from early and likely stick around for a smaller share.

Race 6

(5) STUARTS DYNASTY raced much better last time which could be an indication that he is ready to break out of a long slump; call to upset. (7) EXEMPLAR has been facing much tougher regularly and he is likely to be put into play early by Filion here; using. (1) SMOOTHER RIDE finished ahead of the choice last time and he is in with a shot here, but post 1 isn't the greatest for a slow leaver. (4) MAKER A YANKEE is a good one to use underneath - notice the 10 slices from 25 tries last year.

Race 7

(6) ARTISTIC MADISON kept a string of good performances going last week with a strong 2nd to a class-dropping winner. She should be tough in here again. (1) WANDA BAYAMA has been on fire since returning to Larocque's barn. She could be good enough to withstand this sharp class rise. (3) KILLEAN FINALE will be riding the inside looking for room in the lane and if she finds some, she could kill your Pick 4 tickets if you don't use her. (8) REQUEST FOR PAROLE dropped, popped now she moves back up; minor share predicted.

Race 8

(9) IN SECRET lays over this group if he is put into the race early, which is what you would expect with the drop in class here. (4) AMITYVILLE LINDY was a solid winner in this class two back and looks the only real threat to the choice. (3) SCARY GOOD can rally for a smaller share at a price here. (7) SEVERUS HANOVER raced better last time and he is another to consider for the bottom of vertical wagers at a price.

Race 9

(1) P L HURRICANE has never been better. She should get a decent trip here; call to repeat. (5) SANDBETWEENURTOES missed some time but she had a qualifier which should help keep her tight. She is a Pick 4 must-use. (3) MS MAC N CHEESE makes a great living taking home smaller shares in this class which seems likely here again. (2) RUBIS PRESCOTT is sent out by the hit Nixon barn and she is worth a look at what is sure to be a big price here.

Race 10

(6) CASE DISMISSED had a tightener now she drops a level and gets McNair which has been a great angle at this meet; top call. (8) NAUGHTY LADY B also drops and shakes the white-hot Wanda Bayama this time; using. (4) THREE DREAMS is always around the money and she will get a lucky trip one of these times. (2) WILDCAT BEAUTY rarely wins but she fits this class and should share. (1) MAPPOS MOENHAY should improve with the move inside and she can take a smaller piece of this purse.
