Best Bet: CRESCENT CITY (9th)

Spot Play: SIGN TO INVERELL A (7th)

Race 1

(4) LUCKY TERROR gets a touch of post relief in his third start off the Abbatiello claim and I get the feeling he's capable of showing more. (3) BETTOR DESIGN raced evenly last week and he's got plenty of back class. (5) GIDDY UP DELIGHT drops in class and gets away from the eight hole.

Race 2

(3) REPORT FOR DUTY N is somehow winless on the year but he's been racing well and gets needed post relief tonight; capable of scoring for his new barn. (1) RAGE N RYAN has been sharp in his two starts for Garcia-Herrera and from the rail it's impossible not to include him. (5) CAVIART KEY is not a likely win candidate but from this spot he looks best of the rest.

Race 3

(1) TWIN B SPEEDO hasn't done a heck of a lot this year but he drops to a new low and draws best; gelding gets a weak call from this spot. (4) MACH TO THE MAX went evenly upon arrival and he's guaranteed to show more tonight. (5) FASTLANELUKE has had no luck recently with the post draws; this is the best spot he's seen in some time.

Race 4

(1) SKYFUL OF LIGHTERS was overtaken by a tough rival last week but held well late. He can advance off that effort. (5) NATIONAL DEBT has been a train wreck since his big east coast splash last year. I'm not saying he's a bad horse but he hasn't come close to expectations and he's still winless on the year. I'll let him beat me at a short price. (4) EMPEROR MONTANA N has looked good since arriving from Australia.

Race 5

(6) MY TEMUDJIN N has never been one of my favorites but he had very sneaky pace last week from the eight hole and he could get up late with a live trip. (5) WHOGOESFIRST has fallen on hard times but the ability is there; maybe Bartlett can wake him up. (2) SIMPLY BUSINESS moves inside and can threaten on best.

Race 6

(4) SHADY CITY has been hit-or-miss for Team Stalbaum but we've seen what he can do if he's right. (5) DELCO ROCKNROLL hasn't done much recently but maybe that aggressive try last out was a wake-up call. (1) LIVE ON drops back to a more reasonable level and draws best.

Race 7

(3) SIGN TO INVERELL A never got involved last out after a couple of decent efforts upon arriving from Australia. Expect Bartlett to get aggressive from this spot. (2) AMERICAN FLIGHT had some belated pace last week, which was an improved effort. The post relief makes him a major player tonight. (5) BRETT MCFAVRELOUS comes off a sick scratch but he was super in his previous two efforts for the DiDomenico barn.

Race 8

(5) QUICK AINT FAIR arrives from The Meadowlands, where she's been racing well versus arguably better and she picks up Sears tonight. Perhaps she's too obvious? There certainly won't be much value betting her but I suspect she'll win. (4) GAME THEORY finished very well last week after the fact and she can build off that effort. (3) TAMMY ANN is usually close-up but doesn't win that often.

Race 9

(2) CRESCENT CITY is another Chris Ryder shipper on the card who looks to have found a perfect spot; she will look to score at odds-on. (5) LYONS SHADOW was a winner last out at 1/9 odds and the mare looks to be a clear second best to the top one. (6) HEAVEN ON EARTH may be best of the weak rest.

Race 10

(4) MIDNIGHT DYLAN N raced better last week and now the Vallee trainee gets some class relief as well as picking up Bartlett; lots to like. (1) SAMANDAR hasn't done much recently but he lands the best post and he has plenty of back class. (7) FOUR BOYS finds another tough spot but he's capable of kicking home for a share.

Race 11

(5) OHOKA TEXAS N didn't race that badly in his local return when he held well off an uncovered trip. Worth a look in a questionable field. (1) TYLER hasn't won in some time but at least he draws best. (3) KIWI IDEAL N hasn't really fired with anything recently; perhaps that controversial dq a few months ago jinxed him.

Race 12

(5) STERLING COOPER gave way on the front end last week after setting the pace under pressure; Sabot trainee has good speed and is worth another try. (2) OPEN WATER has shown improvement since joining the Banca barn but he does double-jump in class tonight. (1) DELLA CRUISE draws best again but he did hang from the pocket last out.
