Race 1

(4) MEGO MOSS, winless for a long time, closed well last time and picks up Jamieson here in a race that could fall apart late; slight nod in the opener. (5) O U SEXY GUY has gone two big uncovered trips in the top class at London and merits a look vs. these. (7) OLE JACK MAGIC fits in this class and may elect to follow a helmet here which could produce a better result.

Race 2

(2) SHOCK N ROCK closed quickly last week but the ones in front of him weren't slowing down. The drop in class should put him right there tonight. (3) FOREVER JUST was out a long way last week which was his undoing. He looks like one of the best ones of this group. (6) HES A SENSATION drops to a class where he should be very competitive but he does have win-shy tendencies.

Race 3

(6) MUSICAL RHYTHM steps into the deep end here tonight facing Preferred foes but he could be this good. (2) WILD AND CRAZY GUY is one that could take advantage of an early speed battle here. (1) FEARLESS MAN could get into a spirited early tussle with the choice. The question is: will either of them give in?

Race 4

(4) DREAMFAIR MESA tired late on a track rated two seconds slow last week. He can make amends here. (3) GOTTI looks like a player here but notice the 11 slices vs. one win in 22 starts. (Note: Second choice Home James was an early scratch.)

Race 5

(3) OK GLADIATOR got a clean line last week in his 2nd start for the new barn; expecting more here. (1) LOVES A CHALLENGE does well in this class and stays in it off the claim. He's the one to beat. (6) THEY CALL ME GORDIE raced decently last week after shipping in and he could share here.

Race 6

(4) UNE DUHARAS has put together 3 starts in a row where she stayed trotting and showed a bit of life in the 3rd 1/4 last time. Maybe she can move forward now. (8) LEGION OF ANGELS has raced well in two straight but needs to find more late speed to get the job done. (5) ASTERIX showed little in his season debut but could wake up with that start out of the way.

Race 7

(7) EASY LOVER HANOVER shoots for his fourth straight since arriving at Woodbine and has a big shot to do it despite facing slightly better. (8) P H KENNY has been great so far this year and looks like the main danger. (3) SMALLTOWN TERROR was one of few that was closing ground late vs. the choice last week. He could upset with the right trip.

Race 8

(6) BAGS FOR ALL finds a spot where the lead is hers for the taking early. She could wire this group. (2) KINETIC KING used a huge third 1/4 last time to bottom out the field. He is a contender here in his current sharp condition. (8) CHARLIE IS A JOKER takes a big drop but is an infrequent winner that must overcome the outermost post. Beware taking too low a price on this one.

Race 9

(4) IN SECRET failed to deliver as a big favorite last week but could work out a different trip here and make amends. (3) GRANA PADANNO has been racing well for several weeks and looks like the one to beat. (6) SLIP INTO GLIDE drops and will take lots of action. I'll take my chances trying to beat him with hopefully a better-priced option.

Race 10

(2) UF BETTORS HANOVER faces much easier here and should get a more aggressive drive; top call in the finale. (9) PRINCE SHARKA hung in there a bit batter last time and no doubt will be blasting early again. His good early speed makes him a contender. (6) COMEONANDGETSOME went two long, tough trips in a row and held well racing out of town. He can threaten these. (3) LIVE AND LEARN continues to chip away taking small shares and that should continue here. (5) CHEYENNE FORD took crazy action last week and showed little. He can do better here.
