Race 1

(1) CARROBEAN PACETRY didn't fire last week but I'm going to give her one more chance from the rail. (5) THE PERFECT DREAM had a touch of late pace last out after missing time and she may be forwardly placed tonight. (2) CALL JESSICA LE gets some post relief and should be involved from this spot.

Race 2

(5) MARION MISS JULIE returns locally for the always live Garcia-Herrera barn and the mare has plenty of back class to call upon to get the job done. (4) DEAD WRONG looks for two in a row; logical. (1) MARTZ CREEK REX finally lands inside after four straight poor posts.

Race 3

(7) SEAFOOD ANNIE may need some help from this spot but she's got some ability and could take this with a live trip. (5) HILARIOUS HAYLEY looked very promising when she first arrived locally but the Lachance trainee has tailed off; she's second-time Lasix tonight. (1) LOOKOUT STOKK ZONE rarely wins but she's a steady check-getter.

Race 4

(2) AMERICAN SHUTTLE has looked like a different horse for her new barn and she should control the action from this spot. (4) MY SHIYEN backed up last week but she returns to Sears tonight. (6) IT'S A MIRACLE has raced gamely in defeat in her last few for Burke.

Race 5

(8) KEYSTONE WILD CARD is able to double-drop in class off the claim and he was a winner with better two back. (2) DINERO FISHERMAN ships in and lands in a good spot. (7) WHATA HUSTLER has good speed to overcome the outside draw.

Race 6

(1A) HOBE SOUND cruised through two legs of this series and she's clearly the one to beat in here. The good draw only helps her cause. (5) ROAD BET has also been rock-solid in all of her 2014 efforts; expect a big try tonight. (6) A SHAM OF AMBER has raced well and has plenty of ability, but the outside post may seal her fate.

Race 7

(5) TRIGGER FINGER has had his moments here in the past and he returns into a field with no standouts. (1) SIR ZIGGY'S Z TAM probably deserves to be the favorite but he doesn't win often. (4) ART OF TEMPTATION closed well last week for a share.

Race 8

(2) LITTLE PRINCE drops, gets post relief and is clearly the one to deny. (4) WESTERN DAKOTA has raced well in his last two and landed minor shares; veteran fits with these. (1) ONE THROUGH TEN gets needed post relief.

Race 9

(4) FASTLANELUKE is reunited with Brennan and they can fire to the front. (2) RU READY TO ROCK beat up on cheaper at Saratoga and he's fit well here in the past. (1) FRESH N FAST was Sears' choice and he draws best; obvious threat.

Race 10

(4) TRIPLE MAJOR faltered from the pocket last week with little excuse but his prior efforts were good and there's nothing special in here. (5) BUBBIE BOY drops in class but he needs to generate some early speed. (1) BIG TIME ROCKS found his stride versus lesser.

Race 11

(2) THAT MAN OF MINE has been super since the Berkeley claim and he can take another with some racing luck. (1) LUCKY MAN seems to have found a home at this level. (5) REPORT FOR DUTY N gives his all week after week but he's been coming up just shy recently.

Race 12

(2) GRAB YOUR KEYS hasn't done much recently but maybe he can get well versus this suspect field. (3) CHEYENNE JEFFREY has some early speed, should be sitting close to the pace. (6) TWIN B HOLLISTER hasn't raced badly in his last two.
