Best Bet: JUST HENRY (9th)

Spot Play: BLISSFULL YEARS (4th)

Race 1

(7) HLDONTGHTTOYURDRMS was expected to leave hard last time but didn't, instead going a long first-over journey which failed. Expect him to blast early here. (6) MUSCLE MATTERS has won two of his last three in lower classes after winning only one of his previous 16. He figures here, too. (2) CASH FOR GOLD faces easier and can share here if put into the race.

Race 2

(6) ONE WARRAWEE set a new life's mark last week and attracted a claim. The short field should enable him to get good position early; call to repeat. (5) CHEYENNE FORD is the best closer and the short field should also benefit him here. (2) WOGGY ROCKS has been in good form for a few weeks and should be in the mix here from close range.

Race 3

(3) UNE DUHARAS didn't race horribly last time from the 10-hole. This is as wide open a race as you'll see so we'll price shop with him on top. (6) PERFECT ROAD looked like he was in prime position to end his winless drought but self-destructed on the final turn. He's hard to love and hard to toss in this weak field. (9) ANOTHER KATIE makes her first start of the year off two qualifiers. She isn't impossible here if the intent is there.

Race 4

(2) BLISSFUL YEARS left hard last time but was shuffled out of contention. He gets to face even easier here and can take this with a reasonable trip. (8) HES A SENSATION and (7) SUNNY BEACH DAY both take bigger class drops than the choice but both are notorious deep closers that must be put into the race earlier to get it done here.

Race 5

(9) NOWUCIT NOWUDONT trotted to a powerful win in a new life's mark last week and when he's on his game he can win himself right into the top class. He should be tough again here. (2) WILD AND CRAZY GUY should get a better trip here starting from the inside and is a threat. (6) OUR MOJO keeps racing well from close range and will get lucky one of these weeks.

Race 6

(9) SHOCK N ROCK drops to the lowest level here and should get an aggressive steer. (5) MILLIONDOLLARCELL showed improvement in his last couple of starts and has upset possibilities here. (8) TIGHTEN UP closed powerfully last time and is another contender to consider for the early Pick 4.

Race 7

(5) STORMONT KATE drops and faces a field she can boss similar to the way she did on Jan. 9; top call. (8) SUMMIT CITY NATE had a rough trip last time and still didn't fade horribly. He could land in the choice's pocket early which would make him a threat. (4) POWER MOVE has been in the mix in most of his recent starts and can capitalize if any early battles develop.

Race 8

(4) ETRUSCAN HANOVER is as good as he's ever been and is worth a shot at a better price here than he has been in his past three. (3) LINDYS TRU GRIT debuts for trainer Wallace after being bought at the Meadowlands Mixed Sale for a sale-topping $125K. He obviously can take these if ready. (2) FEARLESS MAN continues to be the one to chase down but he may get tested earlier here.

Race 9

(6) JUST HENRY flew down the lane last week after gapping his cover on the final turn when the pace started to accelerate. Expect a more aggressive steer here. (5) BROADIES SONG chased a sharp winner home after leaving hard for the lead early. He is in top shape and is a contender here. (3) HE IS RISEN debuts for a trainer that has been doing well with new acquisitions. Don't sell this one short.

Race 10

(6) KABLOOIE took a major overland route last week to get up late. He should get a better trip here and can repeat. (4) LOVES A CHALLENGE escaped late to finish 2nd to the choice. He took a lot of action in that race so he was obviously well-meant. (2) KOULTONS ROCKET can contend at a price here starting from the inside. (8) FIRST IMPRESSION stayed in last week and lacked room. He can better this placing. (3) SOS MACH XTREME rarely misses a check and is a good one to use in Supers and High-5s.
