Best Bet: SOMEWHERE IN L A (6th)

Spot Play: KILLER MARTINI (10th)


Race 1

(3) SNAP TO IT A never really fired last week yet still almost managed to run second; Bamond trainee likely needed that start off a month and he can be tighter tonight. (2) PANSFORMATIVE gets needed post relief and will be much more involved. (5) AMERICAN RAGE is another with back class who should benefit from racing back on consecutive weeks.

Race 2

(4) CHEYENNE SEEBER drops a notch off a rail-sitting trip; he was a winner when last at this level. (3) CHUCARO ACERO BC raced well last week and is starting to prove he belongs with this type. (2) P H KENNY gets needed post relief and will be much closer to the action tonight.

Race 3

(4) PASS THEM BY N finished with pace from a tough spot last week; he gets the nice combo of class and post relief tonight and the versatile veteran can fire from the gate. (2) BETTOREVER also drops and moves in off a needed start; big threat. (3) URBAN RENEWAL has hit the ticket in his four local starts but has yet to win.

Race 4

(2) TYBER TYKE looked very sharp wiring lesser and I'll stick with him. (5) DULL ROAR closed willingly to rally for second last week and he looks like a player here. (7) MATTAMERICAN is stuck with a tough outside post but he is sharp enough to land a piece.

Race 5

(5) BLOOD BROTHER raced very well in his 2017 debut and he lures Bartlett off of (2) P H SUPERCAM....interesting. Overbet? The latter raced well but was a victim of circumstance last week; Zeron gets the call tonight and would certainly be no surprise. (6) ROLAND N ROCK is in career form but needs a bit of help from this outside post assignment.

Race 6

(6) SOMEWHERE N L A went wire-to-wire in his last three and there's nothing in here to prevent him from taking another. (2) DYNAMIC YOUTH has been sharp for an extended period of time for Carl Cito, Jr. (5) GIVENUPDREAMING was second to the top choice last week and should be leaving the gate again.

Race 7

(5) UF LARRY ALLTHEWAY raced okay last week while having no real chance; he should be a healthy price in a field full of question marks. (2) ROLLIN RING AFIRE moves to the Banca barn off a good qualifier. (4) HERE WE GO AGAIN is probably the one to beat but he's tough to use on top.

Race 8

(4) DOCTOR BUTCH picks up a new set of hands in Scott Zeron after his regular driver Holland surprisingly opted off; Toscano trainee is probably best here. (7) SAPPHIRE CITY was a winner last week for his new barn and he can handle the bump in class. (1) IRA CHIEF gets class relief and a driver upgrade off a needed start.

Race 9

(4) LUCAN HANOVER had no excuse last week but Bartlett drives again and he deserves another chance. (3) CLASS SIX needed last week's race and he's capable of showing more. (2) BULLET BOB always has good speed but is usually lacking late; use underneath.

Race 10

(1) KILLER MARTINI hasn't put in a bad effort in ages and he gets another good draw; Bucci trainee isn't a prolific winner but if he keeps his good form the wins will come. (3) LORD OF MISRULE was very game in defeat last week. (5) BIG SURF gets Bartlett back in the bike and could be leaving the gate.

Race 11

(5) CASIMIR JITTERBUG is much better than he's shown in his last two starts; time for a wakeup call. (2) BORDER CONTROL A is another ex-Milici horse resurfacing in the Banca barn; he's a threat if ready. (1) KEYSTONE HONOR was second best last week and can round out the ticket from this spot.
