Best Bet: A COOL CARD (12th)



Race 1

(1) P L FIGHTER seems to have tailed off in his last couple of races but he does drop in class and draws best for connections that are tough to ignore. (3) GRAND MASTER moves inside and should be more involved. (5) ART OF ILLUSION has been solid since the claim by Adamczyk.

Race 2

(2) JOHN'S POLYVIEW has just missed in his two races for Brainard; he was Bartlett's choice over the Fraley trainee. (1) DUKE DID IT drops, draws best and appears to be a player from this spot, despite what his 15/1 morning line says. (5) MAY DAY has good speed, stamina is the question.

Race 3

(2) LIFE UP FRONT has bounced back nicely in his last two efforts after a couple of dull tries; veteran can get it done from this inside post. (4) WARRAWEE NEEDY blasted down the road to beat lesser last week; obviously he's got the class to handle these. (1) GRAB YOUR KEYS may have been a bit overmatched in his last few.

Race 4

(3) STONEHOUSE ADAM was in a bit too tough in his last two out of town; Burke trainee seems to fit well at this level. (4) DIAMOND COWBOY drops in class for the `Allard' stable off a couple of flat efforts. (2) GOOD DAY MATE only missed a head last week but had no real excuse.

Race 5

(1) HERE WE GO AGAIN moves all the way inside while remaining at a winning level and I guess it's time for me to play him on top again. (2) JUSTIFIED may be cutting the mile in what looks like a two-horse affair. (4) VILLAGE BEAT was uninvolved last week, may be the same tonight, but he can save ground and hit the ticket.

Race 6

(3) BEACH MEMORIES was used hard early and gave way in the late stages last week; could be smoother sailing tonight from this spot. (4) MCERLEAN was uninvolved last week; prior form is excellent. (2) BJ'S GUY steps up to the Open ranks off two solid wins.

Race 7

(5) HANG TEN flew home from nowhere last week to surprisingly narrow the gap late; he can return to the winner's circle in this weak field. (1) EIGHTEEN gets post relief in his second start back from the brief vacation. (4) HYPNOTIST gets some needed class relief and he does move in a couple of notches.

Race 8

(1) MICKEY HANOVER and (2) ORILLIA JOE both drop out of the Open into this softer spot, they draw the best two posts and one of them should get the job done. (3) MR HASANI N fits well here but he may have to do it from off the pace.

Race 9

(1) MOVEOUTOFMYWAY finally gets that post relief he needs and he can finally show what he's got tonight. (6) IRA CHIEF toured the track from an impossible spot last week but he drops and could be more involved tonight. (2) MCRUSTY draws back inside and could complete the bottom of the ticket.

Race 10

(1) KIWI IDEAL N took all the money last week but didn't fire; I'll give him another chance here with the possibility of tripping out from the rail. (3) FAT MANS ALLEY gets another inside draw but I thought he should have won last week. (5) SOURCE OF PRIDE looks for two straight tonight.

Race 11

(3) MONTREAL PHIL is up a notch in class tonight but he does get needed post relief and he has the class to compete here. (5) DAVID'S DREAM rallied from a tough spot last week and he'll be closer tonight. (4) STOLEN CAR doesn't like to win but he'll be right there late.

Race 12

(6) A COOL CARD was a solid winner last week, beating Fat Mans Alley in the process, and he gets a free ride at this level. (4) TYE SEELSTER debuts for new connections and he's been razor-sharp. (2) TALKING BLUES moves up off a loss but he lands inside again and could land a small share.
