Race 2

(7) FLEXIBLE WOMAN was a convincing winner last start and appears to be the filly to beat in this series. (4) TOSCA comes out of the Henriksen barn, posted a strong qualifier and raced in the Gold series division last year. (1) K D BELLA draws inside, has shown the potential to go a big mile and is a top prospect in this series.

Race 3

(4) MISS EVERYTHING draws well, comes from a top barn and raced much better last week. She has the speed and pedigree in her favor. (10) DOMEDOMEDOME posted a solid qualifying effort last week and is versatile. She'll have to overcome post 10, but looks like she's ready to drop time. (8) FASHION GODDESS has the speed, breeding and driver in her favor. She's a top choice for the triactor.

Race 4

(6) CARSONS CAMALOT went a tough trip two starts back and an even better performance in her latest. (2) THINKBEFOREUSPEAK draws inside and is fresh off a convincing score. (9) DERBY DYLAN gets the services of Jamieson this week, which will drop her price. He has the speed, but needs a clean trip.

Race 5

(6) DUKESTER moves into the Cirasuola barn and has been a top threat in this class for many weeks. (7) MO DEBRA has hit the board in three of his last four, remains at the same level and comes from a high percentage trainer. (10) DESIGNER GENES was put into the race last week and enjoys racing from behind. She'll have to overcome post 10, but at this level she can't be overlooked.

Race 6

(4) PARTY DONT STOP hasn't won in his last three starts as the favorite. He draws better this week and should get the job done. (1) ROYAL ASHTON draws the rail, raced very well in his season debut last week and can only improve. (2) MITTCENT VAN GOGH draws well and raced very well last week despite suffering broken equipment.

Race 7

(9) BUDDHA BLUE CHIP has won three straight, remains at the same class and is the horse to beat. (10) P L HAYMAKER went a serious mile in his latest qualifier. High winds occurred that day and a repeat effort sets him up very well in here. (3) PRINCE CLYDE draws inside, won his last two qualifiers and enjoyed a successful rookie campaign.

Race 8

(2) RAMZAN draws inside and comes out of the Moreau barn. He just missed last week and remains at the same class. (9) LENNY MAC qualified very well and comes out of Hall of Famer McIntosh's barn. (7) JUKEBOX JACKIE has hit the board in two of her last three starts, is versatile and should offer a price.

Race 9

(8) BETTER ART comes out of the Puddy barn, gets Jamieson and is due for a win in this wide open tilt. (10) SWEET COLT OF MINE will have to overcome post 10, but has shown the speed and will offer a price from the outside. (2) HISTORIAN draws inside and finished third in this class last week. He's versatile and gets Davis in the bike.

Race 10

(10) MR BIG HEAD went up the claiming ranks and has dropped back down to where he won at five starts back. He's the top choice based on his 1:51 4/5 latest outing and class drop. (4) FOREGO THE CIGAR hasn't been at his best in recent starts, but he draws inside and is a patented closer. (8) LIS DEO has hit the board in four of his last five starts and is a top choice for the triactor.
