Spot Play: LETTUCE HANOVER (3rd)

Race 1

(2) MY TALLIA IDEAL looked very sharp in her career debut; she'll have to work harder tonight to repeat but I think she's got the talent. (6) UILLEANN has speed for live connections but she's still a maiden. (1) COOL THEIR JETS ships in, draws best and has Sears driving.

Race 2

(3) NOWERLAND FIREBIRD drops in class off an aggressive try and she's clearly the one to beat here. (1) THEKEPTMAN has been awful recently and comes off a scratch-sick but all he has to do is suck along from this spot to land a share. (2) CREDIT LIMIT never wins, but he can be counted on to hit the ticket.

Race 3

(4) LETTUCE HANOVER arrives from Dover off two solid speed tries and the filly looks perfectly spotted here. (5) THREE TO DANCE was never a factor last week but I would expect her to be more involved tonight. (2) FASTER FASTER had some local stakes experience as a freshman.

Race 4

(1) KLM EXPRESS tumbles to the basement and this looks like a now-or-never situation. (5) GRAIN OF TRUTH is the other classmaster here; cold exacta box? (3) PIO POWER showed a touch of life last week.

Race 5

(3) BRUSSELS HANOVER was a sharp winner right off the bench; his prior effort was a runner-up placing in the NYSS final; filly looks like the deserving favorite here. (2) SPELL TO CAST showed plenty of vigor in that qualifier. (7) SHES LOVIN IT is stuck outside but does have speed to compensate.

Race 6

(5) RAMBLIN RICK beat better than these four back flashing sharp speed. (2) BENNS SURE THING was much better upon dropping to this level. (4) S F CIRO is tough to endorse for the top spot but he can usually be counted on for a share.

Race 7

Rene Allard liked (3) CHINA KING so much that he paid a 10K premium to reclaim him; down the road. (1) GLASS PRINCE moves back to the rail and promises to be more involved. (2) MR ROCKFORD has shown improvement in his last two.

Race 8

(6) HIGH NOON showed high speed and set a hotly contested pace, battled stubbornly and didn't tire that badly last week; this is a competitive field and he may offer a price. (4) MALICIOUS returns locally and faced much better than this last year. (7) SEA VENTURE was treated rudely last week; tonight he'll try it from off the pace.

Race 9

(7) WAYNE THE LEFTY tumbles out of the Levy and he should handle these despite starting from the poor post. (3) ART FOR ARTS SAKE drops out of claimers, draws better and could show more. (1) GRAB YOUR KEYS has been a bit of a disappointment since returning this season.

Race 10

(3) OIL MAGNET drew off late despite a tough trip last week; repeats. (1) CASHENDASH HANOVER ships in sporting some fast times and he draws best here. (2) BESTNOTLIE HANOVER enters claimers off a game front-end score upon arrival.

Race 11

(1) CHICAGO HANOVER gets another free ride in this class and draws the rail to boot; totally deserving of his 3/5 morning line. (2) EMJAYEM GRAND N returns locally and has a decent history here. (3) BETTORS CURSE hasn't really done much recently but he does get some post relief tonight.
