Spot Play: RUBIS PRESCOTT (4th)

Race 1

(8) EVERY INTENTION has won 4 of his last 6 out of town and was a decent third in a solid field five days ago; slight nod in the opener. (3) THREE TRUTHS switches to Moreau's barn and showed enough speed last summer to contend here right away. (4) SILVERHILL BLAZE ships in from the Maritimes with solid enough form to make him a contender here.

Race 2

(10) FIVE BELOW made an eye-catching move on the turn last week and can take this at a price with a reasonable trip. (3) DEMAND AN ANSWER drops in class, gets Filion back and some post relief. He is the one to beat. (6) WALK THE PLANK has been solid in many of his past several starts and can get a big piece of this, but notice he is only still a one-time winner lifetime.

Race 3

(6) SHADES OF BAY tripped out to win the Valedictory final but if he reproduces anything close to the speed he showed in that mile he will be very tough to beat here. (9) DIGGIN IN continues to race well every week and is the main foe from close range. (4) SWAPPORTUNITY closed quickly when 2nd to the choice in his Woodbine debut and should share here.

Race 4

(5) RUBIS PRESCOTT left hard and got hung out last time. She is a pocket rocket specialist that can score an upset here if she can land in her favorite spot early. (6) MURRAYFIELD has always had a bit of talent now goes for top connections here; beware. (2) DONTTELLRUSS was a solid winner on a cold night a class lower and the step up doesn't appear to be that great; using.

Race 5

(7) CRACKER ZACK scored a big upset at a similar level on November 27th and has had a couple of rough trips since. He looks as good as any in this wide-open race and might bring a square price. (8) POWER MOVE may have found a field he can beat here and Drury is likely sending him early. (5) MASSIVE MUSCLES has been facing better and should be competitive here.

Race 6

(5) THOUGHTYOUDLIKEIT was noticeably flying late in his mile two back then got roughed up last week. He can rebound here with a better trip expected. (4) SHIPPEN OUT rarely wins but stacks up well here and should be close. (7) PISTOPACKINPIPER was driven perfectly to win last week in good time and is another in with a decent shot here.

Race 7

(5) BAGS FOR ALL raced evenly vs. better Monday night and is right back in here vs. much easier. She should be able to handle these. (2) MEGO MOSS has been faltering late in his miles but could land in the pocket here which would make him a threat. (9) UPFRONTLUCKYCAROL was a decent third when coming off a two-month break now makes her second start for Baillargeon and can grab a share.

Race 8

(2) TRUE REFLECTION takes a major class drop here which could do the trick for this win-shy mare. (5) WHISTYS PARADISE has been on a good roll and makes a logical move out of claimers here. She should be right there. (7) CALL IT COURAGE went a long, brave trip last week which could be a sign of better things to come; using.

Race 9

(5) BADLYINCLINED raced evenly vs. better last time and fits here; call at what should be a decent price. (6) J HIGH had a rough trip last week and should go better here. (2) ELIZABETH BLUECHIP wasn't disgraced in her first Woodbine start and could get a much more aggressive steer here.

Race 10

(6) DILLY DALI seems to lay over this group but also figures to be a very short price. (7) SHOW SOME LEG looks like the main foe to the choice and could upset with the right trip. The rest are likely fighting for scraps here and (9) AINSLEYNOELLE, (1) LITTLE MISS SPORTY and (5) VRAKA HANOVER appear to be the most likely to fill the minor slots.
