Spot Play: TANGO STAR (3rd)

Race 1

(9) MADDYS CREDIT took her only win here earlier in the year and showed keen interest late in her October 28th qualifier; call to upset. (4) SUNSET FILLY comes off a sharp win and although she will likely face a quicker early pace here, she's the one to beat. (6) COLLECTIVE WISDOM could last much longer near the front on this track. (10) THE CAMEL EXPRESS should be considered coming off a nice win, despite starting from the widest post.

Race 2

(8) GRACE DUHARAS drops from non-winners of three back to a very weak non-winners of two test here; top call. (2) LITTLE STUIE should fare much better starting from an inner post; using. (6) SECRETCODE HANOVER comes off a failed first-up bid and he could fare much better here off a trip. The trainer/driver jogged with a 19/1 shot on Monday night. (9) HILLS ANGEL is worth a look for the bottom of vertical bets; notice she has finished third more than 1/3 of the time this year.

Race 3

(4) TANGO STAR was getting to the winner late in the mile last week. Expect a more aggressive steer from this post. (7) THINK ON IT is on a roll and he showed some grit last week down the lane; using. (8) MAYFIELD DUKE was a good 2nd to a very sharp rival last time. He should be a threat from close range here. (10) MACH POWER doesn't need to do much to make the final probably after winning last week. I will try to beat him from the 10-hole here.

Race 4

(9) NOTETOSELF HANOVER won at a price two back when he worked out a great trip from an outer post. There are many slow leavers in here so he has a shot to repeat that trip. (4) PERSERVERANT bottomed out the field last week, but he isn't known for putting back-to-back good races together; your call. (1) NEW STANDARD is worth a look here landing in a claimer for the first time, which often provides a dramatic wake up. (8) IMSPORTY goes for Fellows off the claim and he could easily better this placing.

Race 5

(2) UNITED BI set some big early splits then held on last week. There is other speed in here, but he doesn't need the lead to win; slight nod. (4) WINDSUN MISSILE sat behind slow early fractions then was repelled late by a stubborn leader. He is a top contender here. (5) THE LAND SHARK gave the winner a scare last week and he should be considered here off that improved effort. (10) MISSION MAN seems likely for a smaller share.

Race 6

(9) SENIOR K is in by far the best form of his life and he should beat these if sent for position early from this post. (4) P L JACKSON has only missed the exacta twice all year and his late rally fell two steps short last week. He is the main danger. (3) JACK RACKHAM will likely look to sit a trip here and I always thought he races better as a stalker. Toss him in the tri. (1) SPEEDLING can get a good trip here and stay for a small slice.

Race 7

(3) HOMER RUN ships in and gets Davis. I'll take a stab here. (5) EAS IDEAL lost all hope at the start last time. Weller may have him fixed up here for the 2nd start out of his barn. (9) LYONS WILLIAM should be a speed threat here for Henry. (8) HES GONE BADDER is starting to get the look of a professional maiden but he should take a slice, as he usually does.

Race 8

(1) GEORGIES POCKETS trotted a middle 1/2 in 55 4/5 last week on his way to a big win. He is too sharp to bet against now. (4) MOONSTAR MISSION parlayed a soft trip on the engine into a solid win last week, but he will likely face more intense pressure earlier in the mile here. (8) MOSTINTERESTINGMAN is racing well and he is logical to hit the ticket. (7) JLS BAD MOON RISIN followed the choice last time and he was best of the rest. He should share here.

Race 9

(2) UF BETTORS HANOVER drops to the bottom here and he should get put into play early from a good post. (6) DREYDL HANOVER comes off a good qualifier and faces a mostly weak bunch here. He could surprise off a trip near the front. (5) SHADOW MARGEAUX blew up on the first turn last week. He can hit the ticket if he stays pacing this time. (8) DRAKE has a strong in-the-money record and is a good one to use on the bottom.

Race 10

(8) STIR AND SERVE has a great record racing out of town this year, is in good form and should bring a square price here. He can beat these if raced from close range. (1) CALGARY SEELSTER can set big fractions and keep chugging, which can be a major advantage on this track. (4) JAC SPADE does his best racing here and his form is improving; using. (7) TEA WITH MS MCGILL drops back down and he should wake up with a much better performance. (6) NEVER BEEN TOLD is always around the money and shouldn't be left off High-5 tickets.
