Spot Play: JETSTER (1st)

Race 1

(2) JETSTER goes for Brealey off the claim here; angle play in the opener. (4) EINHORN was chasing a runaway winner last time and finished an OK third. His improvement in his last two starts make him a contender here. (3) GOODMORNINGMISTER couldn't close into an accelerating late pace last week. He should be much closer here.

Race 2

(3) SANDY DE VIE's closing kick was thwarted by a 59-flat middle 1/2 last week. She can get there vs. this group if she starts her move earlier. (5) CAMPS BAY was a strong 2nd to a big favorite last time, but his 1 for 22 record is a concern. (7) MADDYS CREDIT closed quickly last time but could do no better than third. She has some upside and could take this with the right trip.

Race 3

(3) GENTLEMAN JIM, a $60K Harrisburg purchase, is a half to Speak To Me, who earned $500K by the end of her 3-year-old season last year. If this Muscle Hill colt stays flat here, he should contend. (4) ROADMAPPER raced well first up in his career debut last week and looms a threat. (8) MAJESTIC MISTRESS is a half to two winners from two that the dam has produced thus far, and this filly qualified well with trotting hopples on March 3rd; upset chance.

Race 4

(4) REGAL FAME was claimed by Moreau after failing as a heavy favorite when racing off a three-week break in action last time. He should be tough racing out of the top barn back on a 7-day rotation. (6) PERFECT VISTA goes for Auciello here off the claim and he is having a strong meet so far; using. (2) SOS MACH EXTREME produced his fastest final 1/4 in some time last week and is another to consider for early Pick 4 wagers.

Race 5

(9) A ROD HALL was going to be a winner last time but broke deep in the stretch, which cost him that victory. He re-qualified well and looks as good as any in this wide-open field. (6) FASHION STAR made two moves to the front last week but couldn't withstand third-quarter pressure. He has raced well since shipping here and should contend again tonight. (4) WILLYORWONTHE recaptured winning form last week and has beaten better in the past; beware.

Race 6

(2) BUCKSHOT KILLEAN was a sharp first-over winner racing in a new barn last time and can repeat here. (6) BOLERO TRISCO closed strongly for 2nd behind the choice despite having broken equipment; looks like the main danger. (5) JAC SPADE looks best of the rest and is likely to take a smaller share again.

Race 7

(3) LOVE U FOREVER had a sneaky-good try here last week in a claimer and is likely to show more early speed here as she has done in the past; slight nod. (8) MUSCLE TIME made a big first-over move in the third quarter last week, but couldn't sustain that bid. He will likely be looking for a helmet to follow here. (5) APRIL BREEZE ON was an easy winner in good time in this class on Jan. 21. If she has her issues straightened out, she will be a player here.

Race 8

(1) CHOOSE MY JET showed dramatic improvement while racing in a new barn last week and could offer a decent price here; call to repeat. (8) BLUEBERRY WILL has been an impressive winner in two straight to start the year and is the one to beat. (7) MATTJESTIC TEMPO fits well here if she has her breaking issues straightened out; using.

Race 9

(3) MACH POWER was beaten by one last Thursday that repeated Monday night. He should get a more aggressive steer early here and resume his winning ways. (4) CANADIAN WRITER was claimed when setting a lifetime best mark last week and can threaten in his current sharp form. (6) WHATASHOWINONTARIO can be expected to show improvement in his second start of the year.

Race 10

(7) BETTER TO BELIEVE was a sharp winner over a slow track in London last time and now ships in for a Hall of Fame trainer. Don't be shocked if he can go much faster here. (9) NEW STANDARD continues to close rapidly but too late. He will likely win the first time he is in a contending position turning for home. (1) JENS CREDIT used a 27 3/5 backside brush to open up a big lead last time but couldn't hold the advantage to the wire. She could beat these with an easier trip. (5) GANACUS SEELSTER has improved his late speed and should get a piece of this. (2) HUGHGETTHECREDIT can lay closer early this time while leaving from a better post and crash the exotics at a huge price.
