Best Bet: WINDSUN GLORY (3rd)

Spot Play: CASIMIR LOW GEAR (1st)

Race 1

(1) CASIMIR LOW GEAR raced Thursday night first off the claim for a trainer that had success with him in the past. He closed well against the bias in the sloppy conditions despite following stalling cover. He should be solid here with the move inside. (6) LIKEAVIRGIN wired the field in the same race but was unchallenged throughout and aided by a speed-favoring bias. He is a contender but is likely to have more trouble with the choice this time. (5) LUMIERE raced well in his first start over Woodbine and should take another share here.

Race 2

(4) WARAWEE PROTON returns to Woodbine and races at the level at which he was claimed when winning 4 starts back. He can get back on track here. (6) CLASS ME NICE closed well in his first start for new connections and faces a field which doesn't exactly light the track on fire in the final 1/4. He can close for a big chunk of this purse. (1) JAYPORT SUNRISE rarely misses the Super and should share here off a good following trip.

Race 3

(3) WINDSUN GLORY was an easy winner last week despite having missed a month's racing. Expect more of the same here in the opening leg of the Blossom series. (2) QUEENOFTHEJUNGLE is likely to be sent hard for the front early here and looks like the main threat - if there is one. (1) MONEY MAGIC has hit the tri in 7 of 8 starts this year and should make the ticket here, too.

Race 4

(3) P J CAMDEX closed furiously last week to just miss to a big favorite. If he can lay a bit closer early, he can take this group. (9) JENKINS CREEK was a blowout winner for Menary first off the claim and will likely try to take this group down the road as well; using. (2) THEY CALL ME GORDY lacked room down the lane last week or he likely would have been closer. He is one of many to consider in a tough leg of the early Pick 4.

Race 5

(9) LEGIONSOFANGELS made two moves last time when facing an impressive winner. She should be a top contender in this suspect group. (2) JAGERSRO improved in his second 2016 start and should be close vs. this group. (5) MISSION MAN is from a dam that won her debut and this colt won't find an easier spot to make his debut; consider.

Race 6

(2) KOULTONS ROCKET goes first off the claim for Stewart who does well with new acquisitions; top call. (6) INTENDED STYLE was an unlucky loser last week after a tough first-over journey. He is a must-use in the Pick 4. (7) MEERSBURG passed them all last week now goes for Waxman off the claim. He has to be considered also.

Race 7

(2) BAX OF LIFE got a clean line last week now faces easier. She should enter contention down the lane here and with a reasonable trip can beat this group. (1) SLIP INTO GLIDE faces his easiest company so far this year and will be heard from here. (9) PLATOON SEELSTER can take a share here at a big price if he stays flat this time.

Race 8

(2) BAD AS LEADER made a move to the front on the backside last time but came under immediate assault in a quick third 1/4. She can get a much better trip on or near the front here and notch a minor upset over (6) BLUEBERRY WILL, who looks to keep her 2016 unbeaten string intact. The latter may be vulnerable here vs. better, however. (7) NOONE TO DEPEND ON showed some promise in the fall and will be a contender in this series but she may need a start or two to show her best.

Race 9

(5) HLDONTGHTTOYURDRMS is one of three trotters dropping from the top class here that will be looking to grab the lion's share of this purse. This gelding has been getting closer recently and can take this from close range. (4) WILD AND CRAZY GUY should be more forwardly placed here and is a threat. (3) ZEUS LIGHTNING also drops from the Preferred but seems win-averse on most nights. He is hard to love on top.

Race 10

(7) SIR MACHALOT was winning here in this class when last seen on Feb. 15. He has stayed sharp earning checks in a higher class out of town and should be prominent here. (3) SUNNY BEACH DAY flashed some early speed last time which could be a sign that a better effort is coming. Look for him to reverse tactics here and pass many of these late.  (6) SOVEREIGN WEALTH was close in a similar class last week and can take a share here. (9) PRINCE CLYDE takes a class drop and isn't out of this but he must overcome the outermost post.
