Race 7 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Five Pool

MEET STATS: 305 - 927 / $1688.30  BEST BETS: 44 - 74 / $151.00


Best Bet: HIGH OCTANE N (4th)

Spot Play: CHALEURS FANTASY (10th)

Race 1

(1) BUBBIE BOY drops to the basement and draws best; no excuses accepted. (7) REAL FLIGHT returns locally off a blowout score at Monti and the classy gelding looks to be back in shape for a barn that's had some live ones recently. (2) SHADOW PLACE arrives from Canada for Lachance and that's always been a good angle; watch the board for signs of 'Lachance' money.

Race 2

(2) COZY BEACH finds a cozy spot in a very weak field and the 2-year-old Casie Coleman trainee may be talented enough to get the job done. (1) YOU CANBEANANGEL will be flashing speed from this spot and may have enough to hang around late. (6) CINNAMON GIRL has raced well in her last three with Brent Holland at the controls.

Race 3

(2) COLONIAL ROAD has surprisingly done nothing since the Allard claim but he drops in class and can easily awaken. (5) I SCOOT SAM ships from the WEG circuit in Ontario for Coleman and the veteran should fit well with these. (8) ONTHECLOCK HANOVER was a good second off the Banca claim but now he's stuck in post eight; tough spot.

Race 4

(1) HIGH OCTANE N gets an impossible-to-ignore driver change to Bartlett and he draws best to boot; overdue veteran will attract plenty of attention based on those two angles. (5) COSMICPEDIA is on his regular race a week, skip a week routine and all he does is win but I never trust him. (3) LISTOWEL is better than he's been showing and he picks up Zeron with an improved post.

Race 5

(1) CLEAREDFORTAKEOFF has raced well in her last two starts and she should be close enough to strike from this spot. (3) SHE'S A HOT MESS looms the one to beat based on her last two solid efforts. (6) HEAVENS LEGACY closed very crisply last out and was Dube's choice.

Race 6

(1) GRAND MASTER double-drops in class, draws best and has a good history of awakening in scenarios such as this. (6) ELECTRIC CHAPEL returns off a dull effort at Philly and his prior local start he battled pressure and gave way; Bamond import seems capable of better. (4) GLASS PRINCE used to be much better than this; two back he showed some signs of life.

Race 7

(3) ALL WEEK gets class relief after getting shuffled back in last; he loses Bartlett but still looks like a player. (4) FAN OF TERROR came up short last out after cutting the pace; prior start versus similar he was a well-rated winner. (5) KINGS BARNS didn't fire his best last out but he remains a closing threat.

Race 8

(5) LAST DRAGON hasn't been all that bad in recent outings and he meets a field with question marks. (7) DONT TELL WAYNE just failed last week at this level and he'll need to be firing from this spot. (1) VILLAGE BEAT plunges out of claimers, draws best and obviously has a chance.

Race 9

(3) MALAK USWAAD N returns locally with class relief and has had plenty of success here in the past. (4) FOOL ME ONCE had no realistic chance last week from the eight hole but he won his prior start at this level as the odds-on favorite. (1) NATURAL LEDA was caught uncovered last out; should be in line for a smoother trip tonight.

Race 10

(5) CHALEURS FANTASY raced very well in her local debut for the Rohr barn and she can build off that effort. (6) LITTLE JOKE is a nose shy of a five race win streak and she'll be forwardly placed. (4) MYDELIGHT BLUECHIP always offers a nice closing kick.

Race 11

(8) NATIONAL DEBT just came up short last week after doing the heavy lifting versus better; 4-year-old has found his stride since joining the Alagna barn and he has to be considered despite the outside draw. (4) DEMOCRACY N drops from claimers and was a winner at this level a few races back. (1) MY TEMUDJIN N is sometimes erratic but toss out last week's break and he was right there in his prior two races.

Race 12

(3) ZIGGY SKY may be a bit of a reach in here but he's been racing well lately, gets a reasonable draw and faces no world-beaters. (2) ODYSSEUS BLUECHIP closed well from a tough spot upon arrival and now moves inside while picking up Bartlett; he's the one to beat. (4) DELLA CRUISE should be good for a share but doesn't like to win.
