Race 2

(3) DIAMONDS PRINCESS draws inside, won last start and comes from a high percentage barn. (7) LYONSSWEETIE comes out of the Corey Johnson barn and won't offer much of a price. She's been racing at her best in her last few starts. (1) TRAVELING JEANIE gets the rail, comes out of Auciello's barn and has hit the board in four of her last five starts.

Race 3

(6) TURBO DONATO is clearly the horse to beat after five straight wins. (2) ORDER BY COMMANDER has been first or second in each of his last three starts and remains at the same level. (4) A NASHTY BUSINESS has been very consistent in recent starts and once again draws well. He's at the same class and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 4

(8) ITS NO SECRET raced well last week in this class and is capable of winning. This is a wide-open field and she's lightly raced. (1) LANESIDE LEXUS finally draws inside, is very versatile and due for a big effort. (4) MISS SAND CREEK comes out of the Gillis barn and should provide a fair price. She gets Zeron in the bike, which is always a positive.

Race 5

(7) MISS POPPYCOCK has been racing at her best in recent starts and put in a solid effort last start. She did all the work and was only defeated by a nose. (9) ROCK N ROLL XAMPLE closed in :27 last start to finish third. That effort was impressive and sets her up well in here. (2) ONE LAST BONO got a terrific trip but lacked racing room. She was only beat by less than two lengths for the win.

Race 6

(7) PERFECT VACATION is always a threat at this level and was used hard in his latest. He comes out of Moreau's barn and capable in here. (8) JUSTALITTLEFASTER closed well last start to finish second. He's at the same level and once again a threat. (9) FIRST NOTABLE CHIP moves up in class and onto this circuit. His top form right now tells me he's capable of the jump.

Race 7

(8) WAASMULA did most of the work on the front last week before tiring. She's better coming from behind, so I'll try her this week. (9) ADDISON BAY draws outside this week, but loves to come from off-the-pace. She comes out of Menary's barn and has hit the board in three of his last four. (4) ST LADS PEEPER has been racing very well for trainer Wallace. She draws well and is certainly a good option in here.

Race 8

This is a wide-open tilt, but (8) BURLESQUE moves into the Johnson barn, which has been very good and that's the angle I've chosen to play. (3) MIA SEELSTER will offer a low price, draws inside and finished second at a higher level last week. (7) BEE FULLOF STEINAM raced well last start and is certainly capable of hitting the board in here. She'll likely offer a price and gets Drury in the bike.

Race 9

(6) MURRAYFIELD closed very well last week and is certainly on her game. She draws better this week and is a major threat. (2) LYONSAURA moved into the Johnson barn last start and the result was a winning effort. She draws inside and will likely be the tempo-setter. (9) ZIP CAR got an aggressive steer last week from McNair and she raced very well to finish second. That was her first start off the bench and should be even better this week.

Race 10

(2) EAT ME UP draws inside and drops in class. She comes out of the McMaster barn and will get a lot of attention. (8) WARRAWEE LIMELIGHT has a lot of back class to her, enjoys leaving the gate and is a top threat providing the right trip. (7) DOCS HOPE closed very well last week to finish third. She remains at the same level and has a patented closing kick.

Race 11

(8) REVIVAL ROCK qualified well for new trainer O'Sullivan and looks like she's ready to drop multiple seconds. Her 1:50 winning effort in Lexington last season will decrease her price. (3) LUTETIA SEMALU draws inside, comes out of Moreau's barn and has hit the board in two of her last three. (5) HONI MAKER comes out of the Paquette barn, enjoys racing from behind and should offer a price.

Race 12

(3) BAD GIRL VEGAS has been racing very consistently, draws well and has excellent gate speed. (4) WONDERFUL CHARM draws inside, is very versatile and has hit the board in four of his last five. (8) EMBASSY SEELSTER has a terrific one-the-board record in recent starts and enjoys racing off a helmet. She's capable as long as she's not too far back.
