Best Bet: BETIT TO GETIT (2nd)

Spot Play: TENDTOWIN (9th)

Race 1

(2) WARAWEE PROTON lost all chance at the start last time but won 3 of 5 previous to that break in stride. He looks as good as any in as weak a $12K claimer as you'll see here. (8) KREMLIN closed well into a slowing pace on a night where the track was killing speed but he should contend here. (10) BLUSH AND CRUSH looks like a contender by default, even from out there.

Race 2

(1) BETIT TO GETIT showed considerable grit last week re-rallying very late in the stretch to win. She'll be tough to beat here starting from the inside. (2) GREYSTONE LADYLIKE never entered contention last week after starting from the outside. The shorter field helps her considerably and she is a big threat here. (4) MS MAC N CHEESE projects to get a good trip near the front and should share.

Race 3

(6) J CS JAKE stayed flat and raced much better last week. Maybe Moreau has his issues fixed; top call. (1) WINE PHOTO stopped in the lane last week but the track was playing against his style that night. He should rebound with a better effort here. (5) PETTY HANOVER has won off two sweet trips in a row. He may not be as lucky here.

Race 4

(6) COOL ROCK was an impressive winner last week and should offer a good price here on the class rise. Slight nod over (8) CAMAES FELLOW blasted last week but took a major shuffle as there were several lead changes. He could take this lesser group all the way. (3) HES A SENSATION also drops and should close late for a share.

Race 5

(9) EVERY INTENTION went a huge trip on the lead to fall just short in the Snowshoe series last week. He is one of several in with a shot here. Best to go deep in multi-race wagers. (8) KING OF DELIGHT ships in and drops from non-winners of three company; another contender. (1) TEAM CAPTAIN gets post relief here and could get a better trip on cover leaving from the inside.

Race 6

(2) BRINGHOME THEBLUE was one of only three winners from 11 races that turned for home with a lead and held it last Saturday. He is in tremendous form and should bring another good price here. (5) MOHAWK WARRIOR will take all the money in the win pool and is the obvious one to beat. (6) JULERICA has an erratic stride at times but always closes well down the lane. He's a good one for triactor tickets.

Race 7

(7) TOTAL LEE was totally blocked until very late last week but was flying once free. These are tougher but the price will be better, too. (5) OUR HOT MAJORETTE recovered nicely from an uncharacteristic miscue and will be tough vs. these if she behaves. (1) HOPE FOR PADDY plunges in class and won last time she was in a similar class. She's an obvious threat.

Race 8

(5) MCKINNEY got fried early last week and should have less competition for the front here in this easier class; top call. (6) STAR COVER was bottled up late last week on an off track. He can improve sharply here with a better trip. (2) MACH PRIDE won impressively Monday night and isn't out of this despite the rise in class.

Race 9

(5) TENDTOWIN went a big first over trip off the claim last week now jumps in class which will only inflate his price; call to upset. (7) VELOCITY DRIVEN is in tremendous form and is a must-use in the late Pick 4. (2) SOMEWHERE FANCY beat better two back and is another that has to be considered.

Race 10

(1) VITAL SIGN closed powerfully off excess cover last week and moving inside here should only help. (3) IDOLE DUHARAS left hard and finished fast to win off the claim and should get another good trip here. (8) CHEYENNE REIDER continues to race well despite starting from the outside every week; consider.

Race 11

(6) MACH A WISH raced well when last at this level and should be able to work out a decent trip here; slight nod in the finale. (4) MURRAYFIELD flew home to win off a layoff and can contend here, too. (2) ST LADS PENNY LANE closed belatedly last week but missed a check. The inside post should help here. (7) AINSLEYNOELLE chased a very tough winner home last week in a decent effort and should get a piece of this. (5) YOUR MY SECRET faces tougher off a sharp win but can grab a check here.
