Race 1

(1) HERBIES WILDFLOWER has raced well in the top classes at Miami Valley lately and should be tough in here. Notice the narrow defeat Dec. 12 here to a foe that won the Preferred Trot this week. (4) HUBBY NUMBER ONE looked like a winner last week turning home then the leader took off again. He has a good shot from close range here. (6) TWIGGYS TWICK beat easier handily and should be able to share here.

Race 2

(1) A PLUS may have needed her first start over this track where she got tired very late; another chance. (7) BEYONCES ROCKIN has qualified sharply and these rivals are well within her grasp if she's ready to roll. (4) DONTBRUSIECARRIE has improved with McNair at the controls and shoots for three straight here; don't take lightly.

Race 3

(5) WHISTYS PARADISE has been tough in this class all winter now goes for a capable barn off the claim; top call. (7) NEVERSAIDIWASSWEET was chased down very late by the choice in an improved effort. She should be the main threat. (8) B SANTANNAS LOVE was claimed by Auciello and could threaten this group right away.

Race 4

(9) PUTMEINTOGO was a wire-to-wire winner last time in this class. Expect her to blast off for the lead at the start here. (6) DAZZLE N DELIGHT closed strongly late last time first time McNair drove. She could offer some value for Pick 4 tickets here. (5) MACHET ROCKET took advantage of a slowing late pace last time but she seems to be improved for the new connections and is a threat here.

Race 5

(4) DOUBLE OLIVES raced tough first-over into a quickening pace last week. She is extra-dangerous if she can find a helmet to follow. (1) AMAZING CONTROL will be tough, as always, starting from the inside and is the one to beat. (9) SHOW SOME LEG has upset possibilities if she can get started up quicker this week.

Race 6

(4) HOPE FOR PADDY closed with a furious rush to win last week and could prove to be a good claim; call to repeat. (1) TOTAL LEE raced decently vs. better in her last two and should get aggressive earlier here. (7) REGALLY READY moved to the front early last time but was quickly overtaken by the eventual winner and couldn't keep pace. She will probably revert to a closing style here and pass many of these late.

Race 7

(3) ASPEN CALIFORNIA looked like a winner last time but hung late, perhaps affected by the wind down the lane. She should get a solid pace to chase here. (9) VICS ROYAL LADY has been racing great but must overcome the outer post. (7) FEDERAL was a good 2nd first time over the track and should be considered here.

Race 8

(4) WAR N MUNN destroyed the field and took a new life's mark doing it last week. He should take another here. (3) THREE TRUTHS was patiently driven and took advantage of a slowing pace last week. He will need to get faster to compete with the choice here. (2) NEW STANDARD continues to close long after the race has been decided for a smaller share. Similar is predicted here.

Race 9

(5) SANDBETWEENURTOES fell just short last time in a much-improved effort; slight nod in a compact but competitive Mares Open field. (2) MS MAC N CHEESE went a big trip to beat the choice and is a top contender here again. (6) BETIT TO GETIT went a bit too fast early and is extra-tough if she can get a breather.

Race 10

(3) WAR FILLY was out a long way trying to make front last week and it cost her late. A slightly better steer gets it done here. (5) P L HURRICANE drops to the lowest level and should be right there. (8) CHEEKIE is much better saving her move until very late and will likely be driven that way here. (10) JAKARDEZ has been facing better and could get a piece of this at a price. (4) IMA HOLY TERROR should be passing horses late and is a good one for the bottom of exotic wagers.
