Race 1

(3) SHEZ A GOLD MINE faced easier last week and converted by leaving fast and coming on again late. She stands a good chance of doubling up here. (6) GOTTALOTTAGO has compiled a good record down south and goes for solid connections here. She is the main danger. (7) TWIN B SWEETHEART moved into Auciello's barn and out of claimers coming off a layoff which is probably a good sign.

Race 2

(2) LATOKA took a better field a long way on the lead but couldn't repel the pocket-sitting class dropper late. He could take these coast-to-coast. (7) HUBBY NUMBER ONE was a good 4th vs. better now drops back into a claimer and is a top contender here. (8) NOWUCIT NOWUDONT moved first up into the teeth of a 28 1/5 final 1/4 which didn't work out very well. He could upset these with a trip.

Race 3

(1) BETIT TO GETIT is the hottest racehorse on the grounds and once again you will likely get a square price on her here; slight nod. (4) SANDBETWEENURTOES has been facing the best in North America and was a narrow 2nd here in the Breeders Crown in October. She is worth trying to beat at a tiny price having missed 4 weeks action. (3) MARLEE B is always around at the payoff but needs a perfectly-timed drive to get the job done.

Race 4

(3) MISCHIEVIOUSGIRLS only makes this class on the 3YO earnings allowance and should be right there vs. this group. (5) SHOW SOME LEG was well-driven to win last week, making the decisive move at the right point of the mile. She fits well here. (2) AINSLEYNOELLE got shuffled out of a chance to win last week and is a threat here.

Race 5

(4) DOUBLE OLIVES suffered a horrible trip on the rim in the Autumn series final. Starting from the inside gives her a better chance at working out a winning trip here. (7) WANDA BAYAMA changed barns and took a new life's mark in the opening leg of this series last week. She's the one to knock off here. (1) MUCH ADOO was challenged hard in the third 1/4 last week and survived the battle only to lose the war. She is a formidable rival here again.

Race 6

(5) TRUE DAY DREAM faced much better in her first start over Woodbine which also came after a five-week break. She should be prominent throughout here. (6) TORNADO TIM also faces easier and could pop at a square price. (7) OLE JACK MAGIC disappointed last week and is capable of a much better showing.

Race 7

(6) SOUTHWIND GEISHA has faced tougher recently and should be heard from here. (1) ADAYMER SEELSTER should get a decent trip starting from the inside here and if she can latch onto some decent cover could get the job done. (9) DAZZLE N DELIGHT has raced much better in her last two starts and is in with a shot here in a field with seemingly few contenders.

Race 8

(3) BAD AS LEADER was a sharp maiden-breaker last week, displaying good speed both early and late in the mile. These aren't much tougher. Call to repeat. (4) BOOZER BRUISER was hard used twice last week and paid the price late. A slightly easier trip puts her right there on the wire. (1) BARBARAS SHADOW got up late last time to break her maiden but will need to drop a couple of seconds to take this.

Race 9

(3) REGAL LUCK drops in class here and should get an aggressive steer from Christoforou. (6) MAPPOS MOENHAY steps up off a sharp win and must be respected. (5) PUTMEINTOGO will likely get pounded at the windows again here but didn't look great on the track last week. Proceed with caution.

Race 10

(4) TOTAL LEE pressed a very fast pace last week and didn't fold late; slight nod in a contentious dash. (1) BROOKDALE SHADOW drops slightly and should be up on or near the pace throughout. (6) MARQUISE DE SARAH has hit her best stride and is another that could take this.

Race 11

(7) D GS PESQUERO drops to the lowest conditioned class here and Drury will no doubt be gunning early with her. (9) J HIGH broke her lengthy losing streak in spectacular fashion last week and is the one to fend off late. (2) WILDCAT BEAUTY should get a slice on the class drop here. (3) BADLYINCLINED was a decent third to a dominant winner last week and can share here. (10) CALL ME MAYBE can pass many of these late and hit the bottom rung of the Super or High-5 at a huge price.
