Best Bet: ROCK POWER (6th)

Spot Play: VINOVIO (9th)


Race 1

(1) LATESCAPE wasn't particularly aggressively handled last week and was outfinished after pulling uncovered; give her another chance with a better trip starting from the rail. (4) RED HOT HILL saved, shook free and got up last time; overbet off that effort? (5) SOMETHINGINAWATER collapsed after walking on the front end last week; perhaps she's better suited from off the pace.

Race 2

(3) SHIFT RIGHT could not close the deal last week after parking pressure and trying to bottom the field; he'll be favored again tonight and let's see if he can actually make it to the wire. (5) MAGRITTE finished well to upset in her local debut; threat. (6) FAST N VICTORIOUS understandably tired after being hung by the top choice; he's just 1 for 28 lifetime.

Race 3

(2) POKERFACE saved ground and finished decently last week; she showed some solid efforts from inside posts near the end of 2016. (5) DOC'S DIVA makes her second local start now in the Mark Ford barn and she may be capable of showing more. (1) NORTHERN SOIREE has raced well to hit the board in her last three but don't accept too short a price here on this 2 for 40 performer.

Race 4

(7) ZUZU debuts for new connections after hitting the board in her last five tries; she likely needs some help from this spot but is worth a look if the price is right. (5) COUSIN MARY looks for four straight and seems the one to beat. (1) FAMILY ROLL CALL was a good second last week and draws best again.

Race 5

(2) MR BAILANDO has been close up in all recent efforts, draws well again while meeting nothing special. (3) BRICKMAN gets needed post relief and picks up Bartlett. (5) BREAKTIME HANOVER was in behind a tiring rival last week and seems to be a contender again.

Race 6

(2) ROCK POWER was just shy from the pocket last week, his first start in a month. Banca trainee should be ready to roll tonight. (1) ROCKET J shook free with late pace last out, could do so again. (6) SPINSTIGATOR tried to rush up into the first turn and broke last out but his prior start was good; price factor.

Race 7

(5) DAKOTA JACK ships cross-country off a win for the Ruiz barn and he looks like he could fit nicely here; Bartlett drives. (3) J K COWBOY raced well upon arrival then was far back last week; he could be a player if he reverts to that effort two back. (1) FINAL JUSTICE has been tearing it up at Monti, but this isn't Monti...

Race 8

(8) TALK SHOW finished mildly after being glued to the rail versus rugged overnight foes last week; he's better classified tonight and may be good enough to overcome the eight hole. (1) AZUL POOL was a winner two back and moves all the way back inside. (2) BLAISE MM HANOVER went down the road last week and Bartlett sticks with him.

Race 9

(5) VINOVIO was a pretty good second last week and he meets a field without much early speed; does Holland try blasting from the gate? (7) BULLY PULPIT would be the clear one to beat if he had drawn inside. (4) SHANE ADAM fits with these but rarely wins.

Race 10

(3) GIVEMEYOURHEART moved to contention but was overwhelmed late last week; mare has had some nice efforts here in the past and should be the best price of the contenders. (6) MADE OF JEWELS AS was a good second in her first start moving to the Burke barn. (5) FREEZE OUT drew away impressively last week; logical.
