Best Bet: WILD AND CRAZY GUY (9th)

Spot Play: SILVER BULLET (4th)

Race 1

(4) ASPEN CALIFORNIA started up too late to threaten a loose leader but could turn the tables on that rival here if driven more aggressively. (7) DOMEDOMEDOME blew the race wide-open in the third 1/4 last week and is the obvious one to beat here. (1) PISCEAN was pushed hard in the third 1/4 last week and faltered late. She could do better here off a following trip.

Race 2

(3) LADY PING was patiently-driven last week but when shown racetrack in the lane she easily powered away from her rivals. Another short field plays right into her hand; call to repeat. (5) SHEGUINDAH pushed a quick third 1/4 and provided perfect cover for the winner. She races better on the lead or out of the pocket and could score an upset if forwardly-placed early. (2) LUAU HANOVER will likely be closing belatedly again for a share.

Race 3

(7) MARQUIS VOLO and (5) LOVE HUNTER both come off sharp scores and look like the main contenders here. Nod to the former based on his strong win record. (8) JAYPORT ALL MUSCLE was flying late last time and likely closes for another minor share here.

Race 4

(10) SILVER BULLET is a full-sister to two that won 16 races and more than $300K between them and took marks of 1:49 4/5 and 1:51 3/5, respectively; upset special. (9) DOUBLE DECKER drops out of the Snowshoe series and should show more here. (8) DURANGO SEELSTER made a pretty good middle move last week which could be a sign further immediate improvement is coming.

Race 5

(1) ROCKY DE VIE raced great first-time hoppled last week and was an unlucky loser. Top call despite the class rise. (6) OLE JACK MAGIC couldn't chase down a loose leader that stole a big breather last week but he continues to race well and could get a better setup here; using. (3) POWER MOVE lived up to his name in deep stretch last week and is another to consider for vertical wagers.

Race 6

(6) SLIP INTO GLIDE has the best closing power in a field where there figures to be a strong early pace; top call. (4) ZEUS LIGHTNING beat most of these two back and is clearly at the top of his form now; using. (8) FEARLESS MAN is the main speed threat but could get strung out too long trying to make the front here.

Race 7

(7) THE BIG YEAR got mired in some brutal traffic until it was too late last time. Expect Jamieson to work out a better trip here. (10) FOREVER JUST got fried early last time now gets to drop in class again. He is a big threat here. (4) HUNCH MAN disappointed last week as a big chalk but should be able to grab a share here.

Race 8

(4) VELOCITY HEADLIGHT went a huge trip last week hung out for a long way in quick splits yet rolled on to victory despite that park out. He should be tough here again. (5) ONE WARAWEE left hard, took a shuffle then tried another move in his first start off the claim. He can improve here with better racing luck. (2) JAC SPADE has returned from a long break in solid form but can be a bit of a hanger and needs a great setup to win. It's possible here that he could get just that.

Race 9

(7) WILD AND CRAZY GUY faces much easier here and should prove tough to beat. (4) TOTALLY RIPPED can close with a big rush at times and is in with an upset chance here. (2) GRANA PADANNO's last couple of starts are better than they look on paper and he can grab a piece of this.

Race 10

(3) BROADIES SONG gets a much better post and a ton of early speed to chase here; predicting he rolls by late. (2) LIKEAVIRGIN is 2 for 2 racing for Cirasuola and will be winging it here trying to go coast-to-coast. (1) CLIFF DRUMMOND has been racing great in the Preferred 3's at the B tracks and isn't out of this. (7) INTENDED STYLE drops and is another that can close out the late Pick 4. (9) JUST HENRY had several claims in on him last week and debuts here for Menary who took him for himself. He is yet another contender.
