Best Bet: MARQUIS VOLO (2nd)

Spot Play: OCEANVIEW BINDI (8th)

Race 1

(6) MISS COCO LUCK takes a big class drop here and returns in 6 days after missing 4 weeks between starts. She should be prominent throughout vs. this group. (3) ST LADS PENNY LANE went a long mile in this class last time and should get a much better trip here. Look for her late. (2) MARY CELESTE has been racing well and is always a bomb on the board it seems; consider for horizontal wagers.

Race 2

(1) MARQUIS VOLO has been a win machine in the non-winners of 2 and 3 classes and looks best here again. The inside post only makes him tougher. (4) NEILS GOLDEN GIRL was a strong 2nd to a sharp winner last week and is a threat here from close range. (2) DEMAND AN ANSWER was beaten twice straight by a foe that is on a real roll. He rates highly here.

Race 3

(2) BETIT TO GETIT continues to race very tough every week and shows no signs of slowing down; top call. (5) SANDBETWEENURTOES had very little to offer last week but that was only her 2nd start in two months. Returning in 7 days should make her much tougher. (6) MS MAC N CHEESE continues to grind out a good living taking smaller shares in the top class and that trend will likely continue here.

Race 4

(2) SHADYS M THREE made an uncharacteristic blast to the front early last week but then stopped late. That could be a sign that she will be more forwardly placed than usual in this weaker class. (10) BOAT HOUSE ROW also drops here and notice her last win was taken in this class on December 4. (1) MACHMETER won in a similar class at Flamboro last time and before that was facing better at this track. She isn't out of this.

Race 5

In a race filled with infrequent winners, (1) PRINCESS KATIE looks as good as any off her most recent try in this class. (9) FROSTY DELIGHT's race in a claiming handicap two back stacks up well here and she will likely be blasting vs. this weaker group. (8) IN THE SHADOWS has raced better in this class and is another in with a shot in a wide-open affair.

Race 6

(2) GRAND PREMIERE returns from a break looking sharp and is the one to beat here. (8) CRAZY BLUE produced speed both early and late in winning his last start and can threaten the choice if he leaves for a forward position at the start. (5) MACHO MASS would be a threat if he could reproduce his effort from two starts back.

Race 7

(5) BACK YARD BABY steps up off an easy win taken in quick time and should have plenty of early speed to chase down here; call to repeat. (2) RUBIS PRESCOTT capitalized off her preferred pocket trip last week and could double up if she can work out a similar journey here. (3) DOCS HOLLYWOOD loomed boldly turning home but the pocket sitter got free and got the jump on her. She needs some luck but is in with a chance here.

Race 8

(5) OCEANVIEW BINDI was stretched out to make front last week then immediately came under assault and eventually backed up due to the rapid pace. She can fare much better here starting from the middle of the gate. (2) KAYLA GRACE was one that battled the choice and she too faded late. Jamieson typically can improve one the 2nd time he drives; using. (8) P L HURRICANE won in a similar class on December 12 and should be considered for Pick 4 tickets here.

Race 9

(7) A PLUS ships in and looks fastest here. (5) BLACK WIDOW BABY powered to a new lifetime mark last week in what was by far her best effort to date; don't discount. (3) JORDIES HOPE is in great form and should make the triactor once again here.

Race 10

(3) STEVES LEGACY was smartly-driven to win last time, taking advantage of a slowing late pace. There should be lots of speed to chase here too. (5) TWIN B INSPIRING bottomed out the field in this class two back and is the main speed threat dropping back to this level. (2) JIMMY BE GOOD raced so well two back that last week's race was hard to believe. He can share with a more typical effort. (4) DEETZY will be passing most of these late but is hard to love on top. (6) NEW MIRACLE raced okay Monday night and can make the high-5 ticket if he goes here.
