Race 2

(6) VOELZ HANOVER won at this class in her first start of the season last week and once again is a top candidate. (4) WAASMULA has been racing at her best, draws well and is fresh off a win. (2) D GS PESQUERO draws inside and has hit the board in each of her last four starts.

Race 3

(5) MIYAGI HANOVER recovered well last week to finish fifth considering he made a miscue at the start. (9) GREAT WHITE WAY comes out of the McNair barn, qualified well and enjoyed a successful rookie campaign. (3) CHEVIOUS COLE draws inside and raced very well last week to finish third. A repeat effort makes him a top threat.

Race 5

(2) EXCUSE ME PLEASE scored a convincing win last week in this class and a repeat effort makes him a top candidate. (6) HOLY MOLIE MAGGIE comes out of the Menary barn and has proved to be very competitive at this level. She's versatile and gets Jamieson. (8) DUKESTER made a miscue last week in this class as the favourite, but won the start prior.

Race 6

This is a wide-open tilt, but (6) I GOT TO BOOGIE shows the speed needed, should offer a price and drops in class. (10) BETIT TO GETIT drops in class, has excellent gate-speed and is able to overcome post 10. (7) BRUSHSTROKES closed very well last week, will offer a price and will need the right off-the-pace trip.

Race 7

(7) ITS NO SECRET gets significant class relief and should be able to capitalize at this level. (2) EAT ME UP draws inside and raced very well for the debut of Moreau last week. She's a prime candidate once again. (1) ST LADS PEEPER gets the rail, comes out of the Wallace barn and comes out of the Preferred.

Race 8

(2) HOPE FOR PADDY draws well, drops in class and closed very well last week at a higher level. (1) LETS GO GET EM went a solid qualifier in her latest and a repeat effort from the qualifier makes him a top threat. (6) DREAMFAIR ECLIPLSE gets significant class relief, gets Waples and comes out of Fletcher's barn.

Race 9

(7) MAGIC LINDY raced very well last week considering she began from post 10. She draws better this week, has the speed and remains at the same class. (3) FALCOR BLUESTONE gets post relief, comes out of the Johnson barn and should be better placed in the early going. (4) STRONG HOPE was timed in 1:54 4/5 last week. A repeat effort makes him a top threat.

Race 10

(2) RAVISHNMASTERPIECE was a comfortable winner last week when put on the front. She remains at the same class with MacDonell back aboard. (4) NEFERTITI BLUECHIP comes out of the Darling barn, closed well last week and should be closer to the front this week. (1) VIOLET BAYAMA draws the rail and raced terrific to finish second last week considering she made a break at the start.

Race 11

(4) MAJOR DANCER comes out of the Coleman barn and was a comfortable winner last week at this class by open lengths. (9) NAT A VIRGIN qualified very well last week for Jones. She had an enjoyable campaign last year and appears ready at this class. (2) LEGAL PROCESS draws inside, comes out of the McNair barn and qualified strong in both efforts.
