Spot Play: FEEL THE HEAT (3rd)


Race 1

(3) SENTIMENTAL LADY Pacing miss raced evenly in her latest; good chance she could turn things around with a return to her Oct. 29th trip. (4) HUSTLEONHOME has fine speed and will be the one to catch. (2) ST LADS MORGAN With the post relief, she can put in a better effort than her last flop.

Race 2

(2) MY IDEAL HANOVER's last one was a dud but the good news is she moves inside; has tactical speed and with a favorable trip, is lights out for the rest. (3) ALITTLEEASTERMAGIC could not get to the winner last out; will be on the engine and appears to be a big threat. (3) ANEGADA based on her last two, she is knocking at the door; watch out.

Race 3

(5) FEEL THE HEAT put in a good effort at Pocono last time around. He is clearly sharp enough to boss these at his best. (3) THEREISAPACEFORUS Very consistent gelding will make some serious noise in deep stretch. (6) TOO DARN HOT will be closing in the final strides.

Race 4

(6) TWIN B SPY was mildly placed in his latest. Gelding appears to be heading in the right direction and Bartlett signs on to drive; primed. (3) ROCK SONG Game effort against better last time out; major player. (4) INTHENAMEOFJAMES sat in the pocket the entire trip but could not get to the winner in his most recent outing; not out of this.

Race 5

(2) CHAMPAGNE SHOWER She fits well in here; showed good early zip last time out so there's a good chance she could move forward. (8) DEREK DELIGHT tired in the stretch drive and had to settle for the show spot last out; post does hurt but she is very capable. (5) ICED OUT rallied strongly to nail down the third spot in her latest; watch out.

Race 6

(1) LITTLE MISS HENRY was caught for win honors last time out; now will try her best from the fence and with the right kind of trip, she can make tonight a winning one. (5) I DO IT MYSELF took the pocket route home to victory last time around; main danger. (4) GRACE SEELSTER Speedy mare will take these as far as she can go; beware.

Race 7

(5) HARMONY OAKS QUIKE closed well to grab the place spot in her last try and is knocking at the door based on her last three trips to the post here; threat to boss these with a fine-timed drive from Smith. (1) ELM GROVE INARUSH moves now to the rail slot and that might help her cause. (3) PALM PATROL is another one with a good inside slot; don't overlook.

Race 8

(3) REQUEST FOR PAROLE was sharp in her last start at Philly; moves back to the half-mile oval and trainer Burke's main man Brennan has the assignment; dangerous. (8) SELL A BIT N has wheeled off two straight victories; contender again. (7) KRISPY APPLE is much better than her last flop; not out of this by far.

Race 9

(1) ROETHBLISSBERGER put in a good effort last out; gets the rail slot and clearly he fits well in here; the pick. (4) TYLER moves down a bit in class and that might be what he needs to contend with these. (3) ANNUITY was late on the scene to grab his third straight score recently; must be a major factor in all the exotics.

Race 10

(1) ROCK N LOAD Pacing mare moves to the fence and drops in class; poised to get the job done at her best. (2) CANACO STAR gets post relief and that should help her cause; we shall see. (8) STRINGS closed well to grab the place spot last time out; gets a bad slot but could be a contender in here.

Race 11

(6) CRACKER COFFEE Her last two starts puts this gal right in the mix with these; form is good enough for this gal to return to the winner's circle. (1) MONKEY ON MY WHEEL Qualifier at Freehold was good for her return to the races; threat from the fence. (5) FOR THE LADIES N charged late to nail down the placing last week; watch out.

Race 12

(4) CAROLSIDEAL leaves the 8-hole off a fast closing fourth last out; now this gal has a good chance to get the job done over this group. (1) SET ME UP has good sharp speed and draws the rail slot; quite dangerous. (3) ROCKN RUBY N Easy score against lesser last time around; don't overlook.
