Best Bet: BIG BANG BOOM (5th)

Spot Play: PONDER THE DREAM (2nd)

Race 1

(4) SANDY DE VIE displayed good speed both early and late last week and will likely try to take this group right down the road. (1) MADDYS CREDIT is the first foal to race out of a well-bred dam that raced once and didn't break 2:04. Based on the late speed she showed in her qualifiers she looks ready to roll at first asking. (5) ON THE MINUTE MARK is a 1/2 sister to local mare Mea Lilley Mark, a 12-time winner that took a mark of 1:52 flat on a 7/8ths mile track. She likely has a lot more to offer than what was displayed in the lone qualifier.

Race 2

(5) PONDER THE DREAM is out of a dam that won the Robert Stewart stakes at 2 and has produced 4 winners from 4 foals so far, including $214K-earning 14-time winner Can He Go. This filly's final quarters signal readiness. (7) DOCS DIVA is out of the well-bred unraced Artsplace mare House of Pan that has produced several useful winners including locals Docs Hoss and Docs Hollywood. Her Jan. 14 qualifier over a 'good' track was quite good; using. (6) MONEY MAGIC was beaten by a sharp debut winner last time and should be on your Pick 5 tickets, but is worth trying to beat if she goes favored.

Race 3

(7) MAGICAL PUMPKIN pops up in a conditioned claimer here after facing much better recently and should be on go when the gate leaves. (3) FREDDIE also faces easier here while tagged for the first time and looks like the main foe to the choice. (5) WIZARD OF OSNEY showed good closing power in both his qualifier and comeback start. Moving in 5 posts gives him an upset chance.

Race 4

(7) WINDSUN GLORY was an impressive upset winner in her debut and this group isn't that much tougher. Look for her to double up here. (10) SHEZ A GOLD MINE faces easier and should be blasting early. (1) UNO CINCUENTA raced evenly in the Blizzard series but had a nice last quarter on a track rated good. She should have a big shot here.

Race 5

(9) BIG BANG BOOM went a big trip last week in fast time on a track rated 'good'. He looks best here and will take some beating. (3) GIOVANNI finished next to the choice last time and could trip-out here from a better post. (7) BAD GAMER will be closing late but might have trouble with the top two.

Race 6

(6) COUNTRY PROPHET didn't race very well over 'good' tracks the past two starts, but he can rebound here if the track is fast. (10) HURRICANE HAZEL got hung out to dry last time but retains Filion here and will be a threat off a reasonable trip. (9) TYMAL WIZARD is one of the best ones in here but is usually a victim of his own racing style, thus the 1-19 record.

Race 7

(5) R U MACHIN ME looks to drop-and-pop here and should get sent hard by Drury from the outset. (10) VEGILANTE HANOVER went a big first up trip last week only to hang in the last couple of strides. Debuting for the top barn he's an obvious threat. (7) STONEHOUSE PETEY drops into a claimer for the first time, but has a stale date most recently. The time to play this one might be next week.

Race 8

(2) KADDY made a bold move last time and sustained it to register an upset, beating many of these. She can repeat here. (6) VICS ROYAL LADY fell just short to the choice and will likely set the pace here again. (7) AMITYVILLE LINDY closed with a flourish late to complete the tri behind the top two and is another to consider for your Pick 4 tickets.

Race 9

(1) NEW STANDARD was much the best last week but too far back in too much traffic for too long, which cost him the win. He should get moving sooner here. (5) KWICKY KWANZAA missed a month of action before last week's even race and should be much better here. (6) WINDSONG LEOPOLD closed strongly for third last week and his last 1/4 speed on that occasion should be respected.

Race 10

(5) TERRORCAM faces much easier here and should be prominent throughout. (9) LUCKY COCKTAIL has done well in a similar class out of town and should be gunning to the front early. (4) WHITEGLANCE had some gait issues last week. If she can stay flat here she will be dangerous. (2) IN THE SHADOWS should get a good following trip and take a share. (5) MARACHERE rarely misses a check and should grab a piece of this.
