Race 1

(7) JULERICA took lots of early action last week then blasted from the 10-hole but got fried. He could last much longer here in his second start back. (5) LIFEIMITATESART stayed game despite going a tough trip last week and he gamely got up on the line. He should be tough right back. (2) BEACH TERROR was just short last week and he gets an aggressive pilot here; using. (6) JAC SPADE is dangerous here, but he is more apt to take a slice than win.

Race 2

(4) COBALT MAN tried to go down the road from the rail last week and was just short. He has more options here and can work out a winning trip. (5) LONEWOLF CURRIER provided perfect cover for the winner last time in another good effort. He rates highly. (8) MUSSELSFROMBRUSSELS hasn't missed the board in three starts in this barn; consider. (3) BANK SHOT HANOVER drops into a claimer here and picks up the hot Roy. He is another that merits a look.

Race 3

(7) P L JERICO faces easier here in his third start back and he should be leaving; slight nod. (3) BATOUTAHILL was outsprinted late last time, but she continues to be a threat every week. (4) WINDSONG MAGIC is another that comes to play every week and she is a threat from up close. (5) READY ANY TIME steps up off a sharp win but these are a lot tougher.

Race 4

(1) JOSHUA MY BOY is on a roll for Allard/Roy and he should get another good trip here; top call. (8) MYSTIC DEUCE is another that is in top form who should be right there. (9) OCAPTAIN MYCAPTAIN took a new life's mark off the claim and he is a threat, but he could provide perfect cover for the choice here. (4) WHO DOESNT - A 37-time winner - is a perfect 2 for 2 since being claimed and is another that merits multi-race wager consideration.

Race 5

(4) SINGLE WHITE SOCK won at a higher level the last time McNair drove. He should be tough racing this low. (6) IDEAL JET is another that should like this class, but he tends to be a bit trip dependent. (7) MCKINNEY attracted a claim last week and he's worth a look here. (8) PRINCE CLYDE has seen better days, but the class drop could perk him up here.

Race 6

(1) EURO GAP shows promise as an undefeated colt thus far and he shouldn't have an problem with these if he stays flat. (5) ASTERIX should be in the thick of things again, but notice he is still stuck on one win. (4) SIBSON is another that can be forwardly-placed and stick for a slice. (3) VASCO BI steps up off a maiden win. A small share is likely here.

Race 7

(4) PASSPORT TO ART goes for new connections here and the sharp final 1/4 in his qualifier is a good sign. This is a good spot for him to break his maiden; top call. (9) BET TILL DAWN finished fast in both 2016 starts. If he is put into this race earlier, he has a shot. (3) ACHILLES SEELSTER is worth considering at a price with the leading driver taking over. (2) ONLY HALF BAD tried a first up move last week but the winner was far too strong. He can improve off that effort.

Race 8

(1) FEARLESS MAN raced too good not to win last week. The streaking winner that nailed him then isn't in this field. He should be tough on the lead here. (4) A ROD HALL continues to power home late. He will be the one to fend off down the lane. (7) ITS HUW YOU KNOW never missed the board and tonight should be no different. (2) WILD AND CRAZY GUY will be passing some of these late for a slice.

Race 9

(5) PODGE was unlucky to get beat by a rival that slid up the rail late last week. He can rebound here and beat these. (3) FIRST CAR got a smart steer and nailed the choice last time. Roy sticks; using. (2) MR MATCH ON BEACH steps up off a narrow win but his good tactical speed puts him the mix here. (6) REDONKULOUS figures to fill one of the lower rungs of the Tri or Super.

Race 10

(5) CATCH THE DREAM drops to a class where he should be prominent here. (6) APRIL ROSE is sent out by a hot barn and she should get an easier trip on or near the lead here. (2) CALL ME RICHARD was flying late last week; using. (3) INTIMIDATE drops and gets Lasix, but he has missed four weeks; mixed signals. (1) BIG RICH can leave near the front here and take a share off an inside following trip.
