Spot Play: KLM EXPRESS (2nd)

Race 1

(6) M G HOME RUN raced well in his first start off the bench and Brennan should be heading to the front from this spot. (2) DVC GIVEMEATTITUDE draws well again and should be right in the thick of things. (5) THREESTEPSTOHEAVEN hasn't been all that bad in recent outings.

Race 2

(5) KLM EXPRESS is best here, no? Marshall should find a way to win this. (2) ONE MORE KID and (3) MARION MISS JULIE are clearly the only other contenders in here.

Race 3

(1) ORIENTAL CARPET draws best here and should have no problem controlling this. (4) IM A NICE SKY ships in off a much-improved effort and he can show more tonight. (3) EAGLE ARTISAN gets some post relief and he was second best three back from a similar post.

Race 4

(8) SECOND HAND NEWS has plenty of gate speed so the eight hole shouldn't present a serious problem. (5) CORONATIONS K has raced well in his last two and he looks like a nice fit at this level. (4) CURLY TOP gets some needed post relief.

Race 5

(5) ORANGE BIGI drops in class again, has early speed and a tactical advantage on main rival (6) FOR YOU ALMOSTFREE. The latter also free-falls in class and looms a big threat. (1) ARRIBA AMIGO folded on the front end upon arrival but he still merits a mention.

Race 6

(3) BEAUTIFUL LADY needed last week's start at The Meadowlands, where she raced evenly after two decent qualifiers; she should be primed to go tonight. (5) INTOVIEW went down the road in her career debut at Philly. (4) EXPOSE has raced well since arriving locally but she faces some tougher rivals tonight.

Race 7

(3) DOO WEE RUSTY failed in the Petticoat final but she can get well versus these. (2) SUPER SOPH has obvious ability and qualified sharply; big threat. (1) LOOKOUT STOKK ZONE always manages to pick up a check.

Race 8

(4) CLORIS HANOVER was a game uncovered winner last week; weak call here to repeat. (1) HILARIOUS HAYLEY faltered on the front end last out; perhaps he's better suited for stalking. (6) RIGHT ON MOLLY ships from The Meadowlands off two good efforts.

Race 9

(3) WHOLLY LOUY drops in for a tag off a couple of dull performances; veteran is eligible for improvement. (2) HARD TO MACH had some good local efforts here in the past. (1) MOVEOUTOFMYWAY gets another crack at a good post off a no-excuse effort.

Race 10

(6) ISLAND JET has had some good efforts here in the past and he ships back off a big score at Saratoga; worth a look at a price. (4) ELECTRIC SHOOTER gets class relief and would seem pretty logical. (3) SOUTHWIND TABOR should be close to the action.

Race 11

(4) JUST THAT has raced pretty well in recent outings and he faces nothing special in here. (1) JIMMY COWAN N has always been a bit erratic but he does have ability. (3) STONEBRIDGE BONUS debuts for Laterza but he's unproven at this level.

Race 12

(5) RECENT NEWS had no chance versus better last out; Bartlett's choice is capable with a trip. (3) SAND BENELLI gets needed class relief. (1) FOOLS GOLD has a chance but he's tough to endorse but the top spot based on his last two outings.
