Best Bet: NICKLE BAG (3rd)

Spot Play: BETTER ART (7th)

Race 1

(4) GIRL DRAMA may get the required battling in front of her here to set up her late charge and she is sure to be a better price than last week; slight nod in the opener. (9) WINE PHOTO goes first off the claim here off a big win but he and his next door neighbour (8) WIZARD OF OSNEY may cancel each other out if both are intent on making front early. They rate highly but must avoid that early battling to hit the wire first.

Race 2

(4) J CS JAKE simply went too fast early last time and paid the price. Moving inside and lining up in a shorter field should play to his strength here. (7) HUBBY NUMBER ONE has lost three straight to one that has been hot all winter and the reclassification should help his chances here. (5) NOWUCIT NOWUDONT took a new life's mark two back then was claimed out of his last in which he broke while trying to move to the lead in the first 1/4. He is fast but very erratic and it's hard to say how he will perform in a new barn.

Race 3

(1) NICKLE BAG is at the very top of his game right now and should take another here. (3) PRESCOTTS HOPE will likely be put into the race early by Hudon here which makes him dangerous. (6) NIRVANA SEELSTER gave the choice all he wanted last week but couldn't hold him off. He will likely get more company early this time.

Race 4

(1) RAFA tasted defeat for the first time in the Snowshoe series final but looks best here on the opening leg of a new series. (3) LEGION OF BOOM wasn't pushed last time from an outer post but was an impressive winner two back and can rebound here. (2) CAJON LIGHTNING has tailed off a bit but should be good for a minor share.

Race 5

(4) VELOCITY DRIVEN showed little in the Preferred last week but now gets to drop to a level where he won easily 7 weeks ago; top call. (2) COOL ROCK continues to motor home but hasn't been close enough to capitalize. The post relief should be a big help here. (1) TRACK MASTER D started in a claimer for the first time in his racing career last week and was an easy winner. Claimed by Auciello, he is a player here.

Race 6

(6) BAGS FOR ALL has raced okay a class higher in her past two and the class drop here should make her a top contender. (1) JAYPORT ALL MUSCLE has faced some tough foes in non-winners of three and may do better here. (2) JUSTALITTLEFASTER is capable of a big late rush on his best day and has upset possibilities here.

Race 7

(7) BETTER ART raced well when claimed last week now debuts for a barn that can move one up right away. He will likely be on a speed mission from the outset here. (4) MONTEZUMA BLUE CHIP went out too fast early last time and tired late. He could get a great trip behind the choice here. (9) STEVES LEGACY has been racing great in this class and should nab a share here.

Race 8

(3) WAZZUP WAZZUP went a huge first up trip to win in his first start in a new barn last week; call to repeat. (2) AVATARTIST couldn't fend off the choice but did race tough and should be prominent throughout again. (7) HOUSE OF TERROR steps up off a super mile and can't be discounted.

Race 9

(6) P L HEAVENLY rocketed home at a big price to win first time out for trainer Brealey. Further improvement is a  good possibility here. (2) SENIOR MARKET had good speed both early and late last time and will pop one of these times at a good price. (3) DIGGIN IN should be a threat from close range here.

Race 10

(1) TENDTOWIN gets Jamieson back here and he almost won with him at this level 4 starts back; angle play. (3) HIT AND GIGGLE A qualified well in the snow which may indicate a bounce back effort is coming. (4) AMERICAN ROCK should get a good trip near the front here and take a share. (2) TOMITTA BAYAMA roared home to win at a huge price last time and although these are tougher he can take a share. (8) CRAFTY master was first up vs. a very tough winner and likely will be passing horses after riding cover here starting from an outer post.
