Spot Play: NINETTE B (6th)

Race 1

(2) CHOOSE MY JET miscued on the first turn last week then had to expend too much energy to make the front and she paid the price late. I'll give her another chance here likely at a better price. (1) COTTONWOOD CREEK showed some zip in the back half last week and rates an upset chance here. (5) WINDSUN GLORY faced better in the Miss Vera Bars series but resurfaces here having not raced in 4 weeks. I'll take a stand against this likely chalk based on that inactivity.

Race 2

(4) DONICUS set out too fast early last time and put up some big fractions that he couldn't sustain. He can get back on track here with a more patient drive. (5) WILLYORWONTHE took a ton of action and converted easily in gate-to-wire fashion. He can get faster and will be a tough foe for the choice here. (2) HARLEIGH RYDER has produced good final quarters in his past two starts and she can make this ticket if she starts her move earlier this time.

Race 3

(8) CYNDALIANNE DUC roared home to take a new life's mark last week and rates highly again here; call to repeat. (2) I C ANASTRO goes first time for Moreau here off the claim and wasn't that far behind the choice last time; using. (7) WHISTYS PARADISE is a risky proposition here having missed 3 weeks but could threaten if close enough turning home.

Race 4

(4) AINSLEYNOELLE went a monster first-over trip last week and kept advancing despite being uncovered in a quick third 1/4. A slightly easier trip puts her in the winner's circle here. (1) ROCK HER WORLD showed speed both early and late in her mile which is often the sign of an impending win; using. (5) TWIN B INSPIRING can't be totally dismissed coming off a lifetime-best score, but, she will likely face sterner mid-race challenges here.

Race 5

(4) HILLSONATOR has yet to miss the exacta in 7 starts this year and returning to a 7-day cycle here likely makes him even tougher here; top call. (7) HUBBY NUMBER ONE was impressive taking a new life's mark last week and has to be considered here off that mile. (5) FLEET BUMBLEBEE has been lights out in his last two vs. easier and is another to consider for early Pick 4 tickets.

Race 6

(2) NINETTE B was refunded last time after racing with broken equipment throughout then claimed by a trainer that does well with new acquisitions; price play with the step back into conditioned company. (1) ADAYMER SEELSTER won when last in this class and looks like a big threat here. (3) BOAT HOUSE ROW should show much more here with the move inside and typically performs best at this bottom conditioned level.

Race 7

(3) NIGHTONTHEROAD was flying late last week and it's likely Hudon will provide a more aggressive steer here. This gelding continues to improve and can take these if forwardly-placed early. (6) MISSYS GA GA has excelled for Moreau but was carefully handled late last time by Filion. It's hard to say for how much longer she can avoid previous gait issues from resurfacing. (5) DOMITIAN HALL was a strong winner in a lifetime-best time in his second start for Vanderkemp and he is one to fear again as further improvement isn't out of the question.

Race 8

(4) LIGHTS GO OUT powered up late last week to score an upset over some of these. She rarely wins two straight but she could get a great setup here and vault past the leaders down the lane again. (7) RUBIS PRESCOTT got room late to nab second behind the choice and is usually a threat in these classes from on or close to the lead. (6) P L HURRICANE has been racing well and her good tactical speed makes her a contender in this field.

Race 9

(7) BIG RICH trotted as fast in his recent qualifier as tonight's opponents do for purses which suggests that his issues have been straightened out; top call. (3) OLE JACK MAGIC drops to the bottom conditioned level here where he is always a threat. (4) J CS JAKE also drops and should be heard from this time.

Race 10

(6) POP GOES THEWEASEL has been impressive in both of her Woodbine starts and looks good to repeat vs. these. (4) SPORTS EXPERT paced a sub-27 second third 1/4 last week which helped set things up for the choice. She can turn the tables with a better trip. (5) PRINCESS KATIE has improved since being claimed and should hit the board again here. (7) CANT STOP ships in off an impressive score at London and can't be dismissed here. (10) DONTBRUISECARRIE miscued while on the move last week. She could make the High 5 ticket at a big price here.
