BEST BETS: 4 - 15 / $19.80


Best Bet: OH SUGAR (2nd)

Spot Play: BEACHY DREAM (12th)

Race 1

(2) COLONIAL ROAD was quite dull in his latest; gets serious post relief and the good news is Brennan has the assignment. (4) MONTREAL PHIL flashed speed last out but needs a favorable trip to contend. (7) COME ON RIDGE did not get the job done as the chalk last time around when he tired in deep stretch.

Race 2

(5) OH SUGAR made a first over bid and she did get the lead turning for home, but could not sustain her run through the stretch recently; gets Brennan back in the bike and with a fine-timed drive, she can get the job done. (4) A LITTLE ROLL was sharp in her first pari-mutuel start taking second place money. (3) FAITHFUL FRIEND needs to revert to her February 8th trip to make an impact in here.

Race 3

(3) ROCKSTAR STRIDE now gets a cozy post to work with. On January 9th, this gelding just missed the score by only a nose; has every right to make tonight a winning one. (1) LAWGIVER HANOVER was sent down the road but could not hold off the winner in his latest trip. (7) CASTLE FLIGHT closed fast at the 3/4 pole and opened up for an easy victory against lesser last out.

Race 4

(2) UNIX HANOVER was most likely used up in the early stages when he folded turning for home last out; clearly he has the speed to boss these down the road. (1) ANNUITY could not get it done when this guy was sitting in the pocket most of the way last out. (4) AUCKLAND FLYER could make some noise if given a better trip.

Race 5

(2) BEAS IDEAL unbeaten mare will be tested moving up the ranks but should keep on her winning ways. (1) SILOUETTE moves back to the fence where she made January 25th a winning one. (6) GOLD STAR DYNASTY closed strongly to nail down the placing last out.

Race 6

(2) JAY BEES GRIN N Finally receives post relief; on January 25th this pacer was very sharp to take home second money; ready for action. (4) CLASS SIX is very fast for team Brennan/Burke now he makes his return to the Hilltop where he was a clear-cut winner on December 8th. (1) SIMPLY BUSINESS also gets the luck of the draw and could be a factor in all the exotics slots.

Race 7

(3) ARI ALLSTAR took the pocket route home to victory last time out; seems to be heading in the right direction and two straight is well within his realm. (4) BOBJACKS ANGLE A This might be a perfect spot for this gelding to contend with these and the 4-hole can only help his cause. (1) AMERICAN RAGE closed well from the 8-hole to grab the fourth spot last out and should fare well from the fence.

Race 8

(8) MOONLITEONTHEBEACH His third place finish last out is an indication this guy is ready to move forward despite the move to the 8-hole. Trainer Bamond will call on Sears to get this gelding to greet the cameraman for pictures. (2) CARTOON DADDY moves back inside where he took home top prize three trips ago. (3) DIAL OR NODIAL was late on the scene to grab the fourth money and the inside slot should put him right in the mix.

Race 9

(4) BIN N HEAVEN fast and consistent mare has hit the board in her last six tries; good to see Bartlett keeps the faith and remains on this 4-year-old. (5) TWIN B HONOUR just got up to take home top prize via the pocket route last time around. (1) MYDELIGHT BLUECHIP rallied nicely for all the glory in her recent trip to the post.

Race 10

(4) KEHMMYWOOD Gelding has put in two good efforts in a row and the 6-year-old figures to make some serious noise if given a favorable trip. (2) RURAL ART was in the pocket most of the way but could not get to the winner missing by only a nose last out. (1) CAVIART LUCA moves now to the fence and has done quite well in his last three starts.

Race 11

(4) SNAP TO IT A moves down the ladder for the Bamond barn; gets a better post to work with and at his best, he can boss these. (2) HIGHVIEW CONALL N also gets class relief and the 2-hole can only help his chances against this group. (1) MAINLAND KEY N moves back inside where this gelding missed the victory by only a neck two starts ago.

Race 12

(5) BEACHY DREAM Very consistent gelding might have found a perfect spot to get back into the winner's circle; beat lesser company two starts back and figures to get a favorable trip and score over these. (2) ABERDEEN HANOVER closed fast to grab the place spot and missing glory by a nose last out. (3) ITSONLYROCKNROLL A put in a nice run from the pocket but could not get to the winner in his latest try.
