Race 1

(7) MICHAELS TURN has started his racing career late but with two convincing wins out of town meriting the move to the big track; top call. (1) GUSCREST took a ton of action at the windows in his debut but was conservatively driven. He showed some life in the lane and could go much better here. (3) TYMAL SIGNATURE continues to race well and get good checks; one of these times.

Race 2

(7) WOGGY ROCKS was live last week but after escaping the rail late was nailed in the very last stride by one that had built up better momentum. He should be able to get a good stalking spot early here. (6) CAPELO was predictably short late in the mile after having missed 3 weeks due to weather cancellations. He is a top threat in here. (1) REMEDYFORTHEBLUES has been on a major roll out of town after going winless in 2014. He has earned the promotion to the big circuit and would be no surprise in his current form.

Race 3

(8) TYMAL COLLOSUS figures to get out closer to his main rival (7) BIG PACKAGE here which may be all it takes for him to turn the tables. The latter was claimed last week after winning for the 5th time in 6 starts. He is the obvious danger. (2) JUSTALITTLEFASTER was a closing third to the top two and looks best of the rest again here.

Race 4

(2) MAKE WAY did just that after a barn change last week leading all the way en route to setting a new life's mark; call to repeat. (6) BADLANDS LOVE took a trip down the 401 to London and left with a Mares Preferred win. Returning to home base trainer Moreau spots her realistically in for a tag here and she is a major threat. (3) ONE BADLAND NITE moved to the front in the third 1/4 but predictably tired late after missing three weeks action. She can better this placing.

Race 5

(2) KIWI PRES, after missing 22 days action, went a long parked trip then broke stride late. He projects to get a much easier time of it early here and should be able to wire this group. (7) JLS TIMES R GOOD has been first up twice since the claim and hung on decently. He can win with a covered trip. (9) UTOPIA converted a nice qualifying mile into a win and may finally have his gait issues solved. Look for him late again.

Race 6

(1) OOH SHESA BADLANDS is out of millionaire dam Oohs N Aahs who has produced nothing but winners so far from her 7 foals that have raced including five that have gone in under 1:55. This one looks ready to fire first out for Menary. (2) HIGH FASHION MEL showed some talent in an abbreviated unbeaten season at the 'B' tracks last year. She is well-prepped to be ready first out here. (10) TWIN B SWEETHEART raced very well from the 10-hole last week and would be no surprise from out there tonight.

Race 7

(5) IN THE SHADOWS is bred to be fast early and bravely held second in her debut when a blowout winner was sprinting away from the field. Expect a much more aggressive steer here. (6) BET ON HILL has been phenomenal over London's 1/2 mile oval and brings an unbeaten record and a world of confidence to the big track. (8) FRANNEY LOVE DAT takes a drop out of the Miss Vera Bars stakes series and should go much better here.

Race 8

(2) ROAD SENSE got stuck in behind a faltering leader at a key point of the race last week but obviously had trot when free too late in the lane. He should be sitting on a win now. (5) JUSTCALLMERONALD moves into Moreau's barn for the first time which is as potent an angle you will find at this track; beware. (9) SAM HAYES finally stayed flat in his 5th qualifier but in doing so trotted a nice mile. You may want to take a look at his record last year before you toss him.

Race 9

(7) KIKISKISSINKOUSIN couldn't keep pace from a quickening leader last week but projects to get a sweet ride behind pacesetter (9) ONE LAST BONO who does not have the same late speed. The latter has been on fire at London and Flamboro and is sure to be the pacesetter here. (1) DAPPLE APPLE hasn't been in the greatest form but may get perked up by a barn change here.

Race 10

(2) GREYSTONE MOE is in the best form he has seen in a while and can win from on or off the pace. Three straight are within his scope when this sharp. (8) ELECTRIFY was interfered with late and moved up to 2nd as a result. He is sharp but needs things to break just right to convert. (7) SOUTHWIND TERROR tried the choice first up and was repelled. Starting further out he should be able to latch on to some cover here. (5) KOULTONS ROCKET showed some grit to get up right on the line. He should be good for a share here, too. (6) PRESCOTTS HOPE moves to a much better post which again makes him a factor.
