Best Bet: NEWBEGINING (12th)

Spot Play: FOX VALLEY CHRISTO (1st)

Race 1

(2) FOX VALLEY CHRISTO is reunited with Bartlett, and they teamed up to win three back; threat from this good post. (3) BETTORS ARENA will probably be showing early speed again from this spot. (1) DAWSON CITY gets tested for class tonight but he looks for four in a row and young driver Austin Siegelman looks like he knows what he's doing.

Race 2

(3) FORCE NINE has back class and he did win his qualifier; maybe. (1) CRYPTO MAN lands an inside post and he has Sears driving but this veteran doesn't win often. (4) WHATTA HOTTY didn't fire on the rim while chasing a fast mile last out.

Race 3

(6) DELIGHTFUL DRAGON was last seen in a Breeders Crown elimination, where she was overmatched. This is obviously a much easier spot and she did win her career debut here. (1) JOKES JET came up just short last out and she's the obvious main threat to the top choice. (4) LOOKOUT STOKK ZONE has been knocking on the door for some time now. She's been third best in her last five and she should hit the ticket again.

Race 4

(6) SONG DREAM has raced well out of town in her brief career and the filly should be forwardly placed here. (1) STRIKER ACE ships down from Canada where he had been racing well but he's missed some time; short price looming. (7) DOCTOR LILY also arrives from out of town and has won three of four.

Race 5

(6) NOWERLAND FIREBIRD draws outside of her main competition tonight but she's been sharp as a tack and the price should be decent. (2) STORMY NEW YORK broke last out; prior effort was solid when Sears drove. (1) FORTISSIMO returns locally and has been racing well for the Buter barn.

Race 6

(2) RELENTLESS G finally lands an inside post and it should be all systems go tonight. (7) FRIDAY AT FIVE also gets class relief off a good second-place effort; only problem here is the post. (3) SPUNKY MONKEY debuts for Allard via claim and Sears drives.

Race 7

(1) CLEM escaped a horror shuffle last week with late pace; should be smooth sailing tonight from this spot. (3) EXPLODENT was decent upon arrival; Goodell may have this one forwardly placed. (5) GEORGE JETTISON was a game uncovered winner upon arrival and he stays at the same level.

Race 8

(1) JK CHEERLEADER likely needed that last start and she's fortunate enough to land the rail spot again; filly could trip out tonight. (5) FASTER FASTER was no match from the pocket last out; Brennan should be firing hard. (2) SOMEKINDAMONSTER has talent but is erratic.

Race 9

(3) ALFREDSSON has found his stride since returning to the Allard barn and he's clearly capable here. (2) REPORT FOR DUTY N drops in class off a decent second place effort. (4) AUSSIE REACTOR A is in for a tag tonight but he's got some tough ones inside of him.

Race 10

(6) SKY DESPERADO kicked home sharply two back to post the upset; Fraley trainee faces no standouts here and is worth a look. (5) DINNER GUEST has some class to him and he may be leaving the gate from this spot. (3) SHEER DESIRE raced well last week and he picks up Sears tonight; overbet?

Race 11

(2) FREETIME is still looking for her first seasonal victory and this may be a good spot to get it done. (3) JK BLACK BEAUTY really has no excuse last out, which was her first for a new barn. (5) LIGHT OF DAY could be a closing threat for the Toscano barn.

Race 12

(1) NEWBEGINING was a good second last out and now he lands the rail; veteran looks rock-solid from this spot. (6) SIR ZIGGY'S Z TAM picks up Stratton on the catch drive and this gelding appears to be on the comeback trail. (2) GIDDY UP BLACKFLY should be close up throughout.
