Spot Play: IMPRESSIVE EARL (2nd)

Race 1

(2) ARDENS STORM N showed a new dimension last week by grinding it out uncovered; veteran can repeat down the road tonight. (8) ROCK ME PLEASE is handicapped by the bad draw but the Fraley trainee is sharp. (6) ARTSBRED CAMOTION is better than some of his prior efforts would indicate.

Race 2

(3) IMPRESSIVE EARL was pretty good in that qualifier and we all know that this oldtimer is more than capable with these. (5) REDWHITENBLUESTONE has been showing big speed at Freehold. (7) DEAD WRONG has been good lately but she may be done in by the poor post.

Race 3

(5) A SHAM OF AMBER enters the Petticoat in career form while looking for three in a row; Case trainee should be forwardly placed from this spot. (8) MATTIE TERROR GIRL has been knocking heads with some good horses over at The Meadowlands and she may be the one to beat, even from this spot. (2) SO LONG MY LOVE ships from Northfield in good form, draws well and picks up Brennan.

Race 4

(4) DOO WEE RUSTY is a nose and a neck shy of a five race win streak; note that Sears chose her over (1) ROAD BET. The latter beat the top choice last out and is obviously logical from this spot. (3) KJ'S FOXY LADY showed major improvement last week.

Race 5

(5) HOBE SOUND has been positively super since joining the Andrew Harris barn and the good times should continue tonight. (4) CLORIS HANOVER showed plenty of life in that qualifier. (3) SENTIMENTAL LADY arrives off a win at The Meadowlands.

Race 6

(4) MY SHIYEN was confidently handled to victory last out and she's peaking now as she heads to the Petticoat series. (3) NAUGHTY MARIETTA ships from Dover where she's had some tough trips and she could fit nicely here. (7) ODDS ON ALPHA jogged last week; only problem here is the post.

Race 7

(3) MACHAROUNDTHECLOCK is in a new barn and ships to new surroundings but on paper she looks tons the best. (2) SIMPLETWISTOFFATE has some ability and she draws well. (6) R MARIE HANOVER ships in off a win and she has some stakes experience.

Race 8

(4) MORE THAN THAT was overmatched at The Meadowlands; this should be a better spot. (1) THE PERFECT DREAM does show a win at this level two back and she's probably the one to beat. (3) TED'S DREAM GIRL has been much improved in her last two.

Race 9

(3) MAINLAND KEY N was my best bet last week but couldn't get here due to the weather; gets the call again tonight. (8) MACHAPELO has been good since moving into the Cassar barn. (5) TRIPLE MAJOR has Sears driving again and has been second best in his last two.

Race 10

(5) REPORT FOR DUTY N jogged two back at this level and this veteran has come back sharp for Garcia-Herrera. (4) GAVINS DESIGNER is back in for a tag off a solid score last out. (2) MOVEOUTOFMYWAY should appreciate some post relief.

Race 11

(3) SAM'S ESCAPE has been sharp for ages now and he finally gets a good post to work with. (1) GEORGE JETTISON moves inside off last week's needed start. (6) DINNER GURST tripped out for the score last week for potent connections.

Race 12

(3) ANTIGUA HANOVER took all the money last week as I suspected and didn't race badly; give her another chance. (1) HANDSOFFMYCUPCAKE has hit the board in all of her 2014 starts but the mare seems habitually camera-shy. (4) LEAVEUMLADY returns locally and should get involved here.
