Spot Play: GIVE ME AN AMEN (9th)

Race 1

The owner of (4) I AM SPECIAL hands the training duties over to leading trainer Moreau here which has been a deadly angle all meet long; top call. (1) LOVE DETECTIVE drops out of a quick mile in a stakes series which means he will get bet and likely add value to the choice. (6) FASHION GODDESS couldn't get close to the white-hot Tarot last out but fits here for a barn that is going well right now.

Race 2

(5) MYSTIQUE BEACH BUM came to life last week with a powerful late move to win and likely gets a very good pace scenario to set up a similar result here. (4) AFTER ALIMONY dropped into a claimer and disappointed but was claimed by Moreau; she's dangerous. (7) LARJON LAURA was also claimed out of a big win but that was a terrible field. These are much tougher.

Race 3

(2) MUSICAL SPELL left more alertly last time and charged up late for 2nd. He can take this group with an alert start. (3) ETRUSCAN HANOVER is one with both talent and issues; hard to love, tough to toss. (1) JUSTCALLMERONALD self-destructed early last time but he's a factor here if he stays flat.

Race 4

Several drop from higher classes in this crapshoot. Of those, we'll call (4) WANNA ROCK N ROLL on top. She has improved her late speed dramatically the past two weeks. (2) DAZZLE N DELIGHT stayed in last time but had pace to offer in a rapid final 1/4. She could trip out in this dash. (9) MURRAYFILED is in top form and will be charging late for a share.

Race 5

(1) BAD BAD BOY has faced much better the past three and should go much better in his first start vs. claimers; top call. (10) WOGGY ROCKS capitalized off a great trip to register a lifetime-best win. Top contender but post 10 makes things tougher. (9) DECISIVE DESTINY made several moves from the 10-hole in his first start off the claim then faded late. He can contend here with an easier trip.

Race 6

(5) MISTRESSTOTHESTARS moves into the Menary barn and sports a rapid qualifying win; top call at a likely short price. (6) ADDISON BAY was close behind classy Anderlecht twice in open company at Rideau. She should be a top player here. (8) BOAT HOUSE ROW got stalled behind dead cover last out but closed well in the lane; contender.

Race 7

(3) BADLANDS LOVE left hard from the 10-hole and was only beaten late in a quick mile. She gets the call here with the move inside. (8) ARTISTIC MADISON won comfortably but was DQ'ed for interfering at the 3/4. She is speedy but often looks unsound; contender nonetheless. (2) KISS ME OR NOT was inexplicably rated off a slow early 1/4 last out. Speed is her best game; expect to see it here.

Race 8

(4) YOUR MY SECRET stayed off the early pace and came with a powerful first-up move to record a life's best win. Call to repeat. (1) PINOT GRIGIO was out the route and couldn't keep pace with the choice late. The move inside gives her a much better chance to be closer. (6) ONYOURMARKNATAVA should be coming with her typical late rush for a share.

Race 9

(7) GIVE ME AN AMEN finished full of pace last week now steps into the top class. Call to upset. (3) MARQUISE DE SARAH hasn't won yet in March but was Queen Bee all winter in this class and is always dangerous. (1) HOPE FOR PADDY has hit her best stride now and has beaten most of these before; beware.

Race 10

(7) OCEANVIEW BINDI moved into this class last week and vaulted off cover to win easily. She's in top form and can take another here. (8) ST LADS PENNY LANE surprised everyone by reversing tactics and blasting to the top last time to lead throughout. She steps up but is obviously sharp. (3) MACHYNBYRD PRINCESS followed the choice home last time but couldn't get close. She should share here. (2) A REAL COMMITMENT blasted home to win in a much-improved effort. She can better this placing. (10) ONE LAST BONO hasn't missed the board all year but has her work cut out vs. these from out there.
