Spot Play: OK FEISTY (4th)

Race 1

(3) PRINCESS REDI ships from Illinois and the filly knows how to win; she's got as good a shot as any here in the opener. (2) B B HAPPY took all the money upon arrival but caved in on the front end; she deserved another look.  (5) BETS DRAGGIN FLY was second best last out while following a live flow; threat with a trip.

Race 2

(3) MR GREENWELL ran a steady race last week but he did get bumpy on the final turn; if he can hold it together he'll be a big threat here. (2) STRIKER ACE has raced well in his two local starts. (5) FITNESS CRAZE was a solid uncovered winner upon arrival and clearly he can repeat; Brennan drives again.

Race 3

(2) IPO BLUE CHIP needs to stay trotting and if she does she may prove faster than these. (5) MOVADO HALL ships from Vernon and gets a big driver change to Brennan. (1) STAND GUARD was nailed on the wire last week in his local return; he's got class and draws best tonight.

Race 4

(4) OK FEISTY hasn't been awful in her recent starts, including last week when she had no chance of reaching; threat here with a live trip. (6) THATS MY DREAM is another Vernon shipper who gets a driver upgrade to Brennan. (1) LOOKOUT STOKK ZONE bumps up off a win but doesn't face a powerful field; she can save ground and rally late from this spot.

Race 5

(5) GET PACKIN drops back to the level where he's taken two straight; logical start to the pick five. (4) TWIN B NAVIGATOR was second best to the top choice two back and he'll probably be leaving the gate from this spot. (1) GAME CHANGER has hit the board in five straight up at Monticello.

Race 6

(1) OUTRAGEOUSDELIGHTN is fresh Cassar stock shipping in from Dover and this looks like a perfect spot. (6) J K CHEERLEADER has raced well in three starts at this level since returning locally. (5) SHAKE IT UP HIGH got back on the winning track last out but this seems to be a tougher field she's facing tonight.

Race 7

(5) UPFRONT COUNTRYBOY is up in class again after being reclaimed by Spano but he's too sharp to ignore. (1) CLEM returns off a blowout score at Saratoga and he must be respected from this spot. (7) GEORGE JETTISON goes for a new barn and lands outside off a no-excuse effort; tough to endorse for the top spot.

Race 8

(3) REPORT FOR DUTY N  is clearly feeling good again and the veteran can take this field the distance. (1) DASH N loses Bartlett tonight, but he's in line for a live trip from this spot. (4) FOX VALLEY ACTION was parked the mile last week in his debut for Fraley; another chance.

Race 9

(5) DELCO ROCKNROLL has never been better and is a neck shy of a six-race winning streak. (7) LITTLE PRINCE was claimed by Garcia-Herrera and he merits serious respect based on that angle. (6) MONEY TWITCH A returns locally and he's been racing well.

Race 10

(2) COFFEE ADDICT has raced really well in all efforts since joining the Saunders barn; she deserves top billing from this spot. (1) KEYSTONE WANDA looked good in her two local appearances. (8) HANDSOFFMYCUPCAKE has plenty of ability but the eight hole is a huge obstacle to overcome.

Race 11

(1) DILIGENT PROSPECT gets much-needed post relief and the filly will be much more involved tonight. (2) WINDSUN KENDA returns locally after flashing speed out of town. (5) MY QP DOLL could be a closing threat.

Race 12

(1) DENVER DOLLY returns locally with class and post relief for a barn that's had plenty of local success; it should be all-systems-go from this spot. (4) ART OF ILLUSION also gets class relief and could be more of a player. (2) ARCTIC ESCAPE has shown improvement recently; Brennan picks up the drive.
