Spot Play: TWIN B INSPIRING (6th)

Race 1

(6) WAR FILLY was making a big move around the final turn but then kept getting pushed farther and farther wide as others tipped out in front of her. That was a pretty good effort but ground loss was critical. She can take this with a better trip. (10) BOAT HOUSE ROW drops to a level where she can threaten but she is win-shy and must overcome this post. (5) SHADYS M THREE is another that rarely wins but can threaten at this class and she could even get the job done with the right trip.

Race 2

(5) PERFECT ROAD has raced well for trainer Fellows and was a devastating winner last week vs. a bit easier. Call to repeat. (9) HARLEIGH RYDER motored home in the final 1/4 last week and passed more than 1/2 the field while doing so. She could win this if she can get off to a better start. (10) DONICUS puts a five-race win streak on the line here and is up against it facing better and drawing the 10-hole; minor share predicted.

Race 3

(5) MOONLIT DANCE raced decently in her four-year-old debut now gets what should be a better set-up in this shorter field. Top call at what might be a square price. (4) WAASMULA was driven very aggressively last time putting up big fractions and she held on gamely. She is in top form and must be reckoned with here. (3) WITCH DALI fell just short of nailing Waasmula late and is another mare in with a shot in a compact but competitive field.

Race 4

(8) STONEBRIDGE MEDUSA is the first starter for a modest dam but she may have some talent based on the way she finished her final qualifier. Slight nod in a race full of unknowns. (5) DORABELLA came up with her best effort to date last seek. She may have found a field she can handle here. (3) DEUCETTE is related to several winners that won dozens of races but all had mediocre to poor debut efforts; your call.

Race 5

(4) JETPEDIA was live last week but just too far back early; another chance hoping he leaves a bit this time. (3) WIZARD OF OSNEY stole a soft middle 1/2 and was impossible to catch late. He has raced great for Moreau and is the one to beat once again. (9) HILLSONATOR escapes the outstanding Musical Rhythm and has to be considered here.

Race 6

(5) TWIN B INSPIRING was a blowout winner here at the end of January then had two tough trips. She can take this group a long way. (9) ST LADS PENNY LANE drops to a level where she is usually solid but must overcome this post. (2) TRUE REFLECTION could upset with the right trip, but it would need to be near-perfect considering her lack of killer instinct.

Race 7

(5) IRISH SCOTCH closed strongly in his Woodbine return last week and is capable of leaving much better. Perhaps he will blast off early here looking for position. (4) OAKLEA WYATT has been racing well in the top class at Flamboro and has to be considered here. (7) ASPEN CALIFORNIA may benefit from getting off the rail here and hit the ticket at a price.

Race 8

(8) WANDA BAYAMA wasn't hurried early in her comeback race and as such couldn't reach a sprinting leader late. She likely leaves harder and moves earlier here; top call. (1) OUR HOT MAJORETTE was an easy winner in the open leg and will have to be caught here. (5) ANISTON SEELSTER was a bit rusty last week now comes back in 7 days and should be better for it.

Race 9

(3) A PLUS used a devastating 3rd 1/4 move to blow her rivals away last week. Call to repeat in her current form. (7) DOCTOR TERROR is capable of a much better effort and the slight drop in class may wake her up in her fourth start back. (4) KISS ME OR NOT drops a level and should be prominent early, at the very least.

Race 10

(5) OSTINATO debuts for Moreau and slides into a claimer. She might be a decent price too; slight nod. (8) CYNDALIANNE DUC also drops and last time she was in a claimer she was a sharp winner; using. (10) OLIVIAS WAY fits great in this class but post could do her in here. (7) NUNETTE B and (4) CARLY HOLLYWOOD are reliable check earners that can make the Super or High-5 ticket.
