Spot Play: BATTLE CALL (7th)

Race 1

(10) PAMPERED IN PINK was a powerful winner again last week while taking a new life's mark. She can triple up here as her good early speed should help negate the outer post. (2) OCEANVIEW PANCHO ships west in tremendous form and he should be able to shave several seconds off on the big track; using. (3) EMPIRESTATEOFMIND has won 3 of his last 5 after going winless in his first 5 starts. His racing style should play well here; another contender in a contentious opener. (7) NIGHT WITCH will likely be overbet here off her blowout maiden win. I will play to beat her.

Race 2

(2) AWESOMENESS lost positions early in the stretch then came again last week. He may look to control things here. (1) EAST END edged the choice last week and this rematch looks like a two-horse race on paper. (7) SHARKY SHARK is worth a look for the exotics off his nice maiden win. (3) SHADOWFALL should be closer here leaving from a better post.

Race 3

(1) SIBSON is the lone winner facing a debutante from post 10 and eight others that are a combined 0-116. He's worth a swing when you consider those numbers. (10) VEYRON - a $20K Harrisburg purchase - doesn't have to be the second coming of Mack Lobell to compete with these; using. (2) CORE FUSION should improve leaving from the inside and he will likely get put into play early here. (3) ANDOVERS CHOICE is in good form, but he has also failed 23 times in this class; your call.

Race 4

(8) LONEWOLF CURRIER goes for the top barn off the claim coming off a quick and powerful win. He should be tough to beat at a short price here. (9) PAR INTENDED is razor-sharp, but post, pace and racing style could work against him here. (7) P L HEAVENLY's lone 2016 win came at big odds over this track early in the year; consider for exotics. (4) BAZINGA BRAD is in tremendous form and can't be left off tri and super bets.

Race 5

(2) RAGING FINGERS - winner of 35 of his last 55 starts - was reclaimed by Cullen last time and he should get a good trip on or near the pace here; slight nod. (7) STIMULUS SPENDING drops to a level where he is typically tough; toss on horizontal bets. (3) CUNDALINI almost pulled off a shocker two back and he could get a great trip near the front here. (1) LITTLE TURK should be passing many of these late for a smaller share.

Race 6

(3) HLDONTGHTTOYURDRMS takes a big class plunge here after stretching his legs vs. much better coming off a 4 1/2-month break. I'll give him the nod vs. a mostly suspect group. (8) ROCKIN WITH DEWEY also drops and she should get sent early here; using. (1) ENTRANCED usually races well at this level. He can close late for a piece. (4) CROWN CLASSIC is another that should be passing horses late.

Race 7

(9) BATTLE CALL moves into a potent barn and adds Lasix and he has shown he has the speed to overcome this post; top call. (4) CS EYE returns from a break for trainer Weller and he is likely to be sent hard early here. (2) MACH IT BIG was just short in this class last time and leaving from the inside gives him a good shot in a race with several contenders. (1) FRANKIE BOY displayed good speed both early and late in his qualifier. He is another to consider for Pick 4 bets.

Race 8

(6) JENKINS CREEK went a big trip on the rim last time and he was claimed. A slightly better journey and he gets it done here. (8) HIGHLAND TARTAN has the speed to overcome this post and an aggressive driver; beware. (4) COBALT MAN drops a level and he should be heard from here. (3) NEW YORK NIGHTMARE's style isn't the best for this track, but he should close for a share.

Race 9

(5) WARAWEE PROTON keeps winning and keeps getting claimed. He goes for the top conditioner here and he should be very tough to beat. (4) DEMAND AN ANSWER gets McNair here and he quite often can wake one up the first time he drives; consider for exotics. (1) GIRL DRAMA has taken her seasonal mark at Woodbine. (2) BLUSH AND CRUSH gets an interesting barn change here.

Race 10

(7) DONNA PARTY drops back into a claimer here and she should be prominent throughout. (2) GROUND SHAKER passed rivals as the late pace accelerated last week. She can be a big player here. (8) LADY JEN should share going first off the claim here. (6) ALEXAS HOPE will be passing foes late and she could pass them all if she is close enough at the top of the lane. (4) SHES A MANIAC will be a pace factor early but she is likely to stick around for only a smaller share.
