Spot Play: M T UR POCKETS (4th)

Race 1

(7) WESTLUCKYCAM ships in join Menary's barn and simply looks faster than her rivals. She'll likely kick off the proceedings as a popular winner. (1) NOONE TO DEPEND ON raced very well in her season debut and could drop a second or two here. (2) BLUEBERRY WILL tries for six straight here but might find the choice too tough.

Race 2

(2) MIAMI MAGIC was a strong maiden winner last week and this group might be even easier; call to repeat. (4) SECRET MUSCLE showed good early speed last time but went too fast and paid the price late. He can hang around for a share here. (5) LEGIONOFANGELS finishes somewhere between 2nd and 5th in every start. She can crack the tri or super here off a following trip.

Race 3

(2) HEAVENLY HILL raced well in the Petticoat series and ships in to face easier here; top call. (4) WINDSUN GLORY has been an easy winner in her past two but will need a faster final 1/4 to knock off the choice. (5) EVANGELIN SEELSTER was an impressive debut winner and the filly she beat came back to jog on Thursday night here. She seems to have a big upside; using.

Race 4

(4) M T UR POCKETS ships in and goes for trainer Weller who is deadly with these types; top call. (1) CREAMPUFF MACDADDY made an ill-advised move into a hot early pace and paid for it last time out. He fits much better here and is a big threat. (5) JUSTCALLMERONALD was entered Friday, too, but does fit well in this class if he goes.

Race 5

(6) READ THE PROPOSAL drops in class here and can take this group coast-to-coast. (3) YORK SEELSTER goes for Moreau off the claim which is enough for me to toss on my Pick 4 ticket. (4) CANADIAN WRITER drops back into a conditioned claimer and should show much more here.

Race 6

(2) WILD AND CRAZY GUY has been racing decently in the top class and fits well here. He is one of several that could take this dash. (3) BAGS FOR ALL didn't threaten last week but likely gets sent here early which will give her a much better shot. (1) BIG RICH steps up off two strong wins and isn't out of this but is likely to face more heat up front.

Race 7

(8) DAYLIGHT RUSH drops back to a class where he should be a strong contender. Driver MacDonald has been running hot lately; top call. (4) WINDSUN FALLS has really improved in her last two and another slight move forward would put him right there on the wire with these. (1) SPORTS COLOGNE has a long winless drought but has been coming close lately and retains Filion. He isn't impossible here.

Race 8

(5) INTENDED STYLE was an easy winner last week and is a top contender again right back. (6) PRINCE SHARKA interestingly comes up tagged after a conditioned win two weeks back; mixed signals, but on form he is an obvious contender. (7) LOVEDANCINWITHYOU went a long trip in a quick mile vs. better and can contend here on the class drop.

Race 9

(3) FEARLESS MAN looks to add to his 2016 bankroll before they shift to Mohawk. He should be tough to beat here on the lead. (5) ETRUSCAN HANOVER is capable of better than his last two but needs to get better position early than he did last time. (6) HLDONTGHTTOYURDRMS moves back up off a sharp win but is more likely to take a smaller share here.

Race 10

(3) SOVEREIGN WEALTH is the only multiple winner in this field that is near-impossible to figure out. He gets the slightest of nods in a race you should consider taking all in the Pick 4 if your budget allows. (4) MACHAPELO closed well for third last week and should share here but his 0-26 record the past two seasons makes him hard to love on top. (5) JAKE LOEWEN is getting closer and can take this with a trip. (7) COMEANDGETSOME almost always gets a check but often loses ground late. (6) WASHINGTON HANOVER attracted a claim from trainer Pereira last time. Maybe he can wake him up.
