Email

MEET STATS: 120 - 342 / $577.30

Best Bet: COSMICPEDIA (9th)     Spot Play: WINBAK SPEEDI (7th)

Race 1

(6) KID CRUISER was a curious claim two back, then had an impossible trip; he may seem like a bit of a stretch from this spot but stranger things have happened. (1) HE'S GREAT won easily at this level two back; logical favorite. (2) TOO MUCH PEPPER returns with post relief.

Race 2

(2) NOWERLAND FRIEND was a decent looking three-year-old for Garcia-Herrera and company; what the heck happened? (5) REV IT NOW seems better suited for the big track. (3) SUNSET GENTELMAN showed improvement last out.

Race 3

(3) SAKRA FELLA has always had ability; now he drops in class, gets post relief and Sears drives; lots to like. (4) GIACOMETTI never seems to win, but he can be counted on for a share. (7) BOI was overmatched in the Levy; dropping out of that series doesn't guarantee a win, however.

Race 4

(1) CABO BLUE draws best in his local return and he could trip out from this spot. (4) RAPID STRATEGY seems to have forgotten how to win. (2) LUCERNE DE VIE is an interesting shipper and Sears picks up the drive

Race 5

(4) THE ENCOUNTER figures to take them as far and as fast as he can; he may hold on, then again he may not. (1) MAGNUS DEO isn't a prolific winner, but he can be close enough to strike. (3) RIOPELLE should save ground here and he can hold for a share.

Race 6

(3) SPUDCAM drops back down in class and he can grind his way to victory. (4) ISLAND REDEMPTION stalled on the rim last out; he's capable of better. (6) ENRY hails from a barn that's been good all year.

Race 7

(6) WINBAK SPEEDI moves into the Harder barn and picks up Brennan for her local debut; figure on forward progress from the gate. (1) HAYWORTH BLUE CHIP has looked decent early on in her three-year-old season for Schnittker. (3) CAROLSIDEAL was game in defeat last week for Dauplaise.

Race 8

(5) I GOT SKILLS ships back locally and hinted at some ability in the Petticoat; there's no killers in here. (2) HEAVENS BETTORHALF beat a softer field at odds-on last out. (3) VANITY FAIREST showed some good efforts at Chester (I mean Philadelphia).

Race 9

(1) COSMICPEDIA is in raging form right now for Banca and he clearly deserves top billing from this spot. (2) SHOWTIME SHARK should be close up throughout. (6) STONEBRIDGE ROCKET has missed time, but he does have speed and probably fits with these.

Race 10

(1) KEVLAR HANOVER was beaten by Sparky last out in 40K claimers; no shame in that. (4) SHOTGUNA A picks up Sears tonight, also gets some class relief. (2) SALVESTER STALLION had some early speed and was shuffled back last out; he also gets class relief here.

Race 11

(4) TYS A BIG STAR is simply a classier horse than main rival (5) MILITARY STRATCOM and he has a post edge. The latter has been an ATM machine for Pena. (6) DALLENBACH HANOVER is a nice fit at this level, but was done no favors at the post draw.

Race 12

(3) PEMBROKE NICK has turned it around in his last two for Brennan/Pena and he drops in class tonight; 6/1 morning line???  (1) OPEN WATER can't seem to win, but he's usually close. (4) CHINA KING collapsed deep stretch last week in his second start for Banca.
