Spot Play: JORDIES HOPE (4th)

Race 1

(6) BEACHSIDE BUNGALOW is shipped in by Alagna racing and goes here for the potent Waxman barn. These look within his scope; top call. (3) DECISIVE DESTINY closed a big gap second time out for Auciello and is likely to leave hard for position and contend here. (8) CAPELO gets claimed every week and returns to a barn he won for four starts back; obvious contender.

Race 2

(7) CROWN ISLE shipped in, cut some honest fractions and just failed to last. He was claimed by McMaster who excels with these types; top call. (2) LITTLE QUICK got good positioning and nailed the choice right on the money; top contender again. (5) P L GYRO hasn't been used overly hard the past two from outer posts, but has a better chance to share here from mid-gate in a smaller field.

Race 3

(3) TYMAL SIGNATURE raced much better last time from the 10-hole for a barn that has been much more effective of late; top billing. (4) BRINKERS DREAM debuts for Bax and wouldn't need much more than she showed in her qualifier to contend here. (2) ARRAKIS obviously has a bit of talent, but needs to get it together on race nights and mind his manners.

Race 4

(9) JORDIES HOPE was called to win last week but miscued at the start. She recovered decently for a check and can take these if she stays flat. (8) WARAWEE QUALLY continues to contend every race; she has to get lucky once, no? (4) OOH SHESA BADLANDS hasn't lived up to her stellar breeding yet but looks like one of the best ones in here.

Race 5

(6) COOL CREEK VALLEY cut some big fractions and was unlucky to get picked up late by one that was covered up inside all the way until late. (9) IN SECRET has returned to action in great form and is the one to fend off late. (2) WIZARD OF OSNEY was used hard early and faltered late. He can sit a trip here and threaten these.

Race 6

(4) REGIL HURRICANE was a visually-impressive winner in her 2014 debut and can double up here. (9) WAR FILLY came to life in the HPI series and is the obvious one to down. (7) HAPPY ENDING GAL had a useful comebacker but needs to find more speed late in her miles.

Race 7

(7) MOPEY COREY put together his best mile in some time last week and should be able to build on that; top contender vs. this group. (6) ROAD SENSE moves to a better post and Zeron should have him in position to get a good share here. (1) OUR MOJO drops again after breaking early and is a contender if flat.

Race 8

(5) KIKISKISSINKOUSIN left hard as expected but several early lead changes played against her as she was shuffled out of a contending spot. She has a good chance at a much better trip here; top call. (8) ROLLTIDEROLL suffered a similar fate in the same dash and likely makes front here where she likes to be. (2) DAPPLE APPLE continues to improve and will be sitting on a win soon; beware.

Race 9

(3) CANADIAN EDITION was victim of some unnecessary early dueling for the lead and was the only one near the top to survive it. He is obviously live and should get a better trip here. (1) CLICK BOOM was overdriven early and paid the price. From the rail here things should go much better for him. (6) A AND C ARTIST continues to show good late speed, but is often too far back to threaten for the win; minor share likely.

Race 10

(5) DEBBIES MACH sat in the gapped pocket behind some ridiculous fractions then took over the lead late only to be nailed. That was a big improvement in overall speed; top call. (2) MAKE WAY looked like she was pacing away from a fire early last time. She could do with better rating. (8) A LOT OF SENSE took advantage and chased them all down late. She contends again here. (6) BADLANDS LOVE drops back to a class where she fits and should share. (1) STRYKING DOVE looks like one that can ride the rail for a piece.
