Best Bet: SUNFIRE BLUE CHIP (12th)

Race 1

(4) RU READY TO ROCK gets post relief after a needed first seasonal start; Godinez trainee was Kakaley's choice and could be on the move early. (2) TAURANGA took advantage of a good setup to upset versus lesser last out; tough to justify the low morning line here but he is in with a good chance. (1) RIVER RUN FOR RYAN had good finishing pace in last and he draws well again.

Race 2

(2) YOU'RE MAJESTIC ships in from The Meadows, joins the O'Sullivan barn and has amassed a nice bankroll in her young career; take a long look from this spot. (6) WATKINS may need some help from this spot but he's been good in his last two. (1) OUTBURST gets some needed class relief.

Race 3

(1) BLATANTLY BEST has faced better with some success in the past and he lands the rail in a race with many suspect contenders. (7) CARTOON DADDY was Bartlett's choice but he needs to overcome the post. (3) MAJOR BUBBLES N makes his U.S. debut off an even qualifier; consider underneath and tab for future efforts.

Race 4

(7) CYCLONE KIWI N was second best to a tough one last out and the Bamond trainee looms the one to beat here despite the outside post. (4) JENERAL PATTON paced a big back half en route to victory last out. (3) OUR WALDEN BURY N can save ground and shake free with pace.

Race 5

(4) ONE THROUGH TEN usually flashes good speed but doesn't always finish; maybe the fresh hands of Brennan can shake him up. (3) PASS THEM BY N is capable of powering past these if in the mood. (1) ONEDIN MACH N was Dube's choice and he returns locally with the best post.

Race 6

(7) RED HOT HERBIE and (8) NOT AFRAID have both been solid in their 2016 starts but the nod goes to 'Herbie' with the post and tactical advantage. (5) MAJOR ATHENS ships in and joins the Milici barn; he faces tougher but is worth a look underneath.

Race 7

(6) SNAP TO IT A gets some needed post relief and needs a trip but is worth considering if the price is right. (2) VILLAGE BEAT also drops and gets needed post relief. (7) TWIN B HOLLISTER finished very strongly last out but he loses Bartlett tonight to the top choice.

Race 8

(5) PHIL YOUR BOOTS never got involved last out from the outside post; with this better starting spot he should revert to aggressive tactics. (6) MELMERBY BEACH was very good in defeat last out and has been a solid performer since the Annunziata purchase. (4) HUGH HEFNER N has looked good since arriving in the U.S.

Race 9

(1) FORTY FIVE RED will be looking to go coast to coast from this spot and he'll probably be favored to do so. (3) SOHO JACKMAN A closed well last out and always gives an honest effort. (5) SUPREME MACH N loses Dube tonight but he's got ability and could be considered for a share.

Race 10

(2) BJ'S GUY makes his second return start off a needed tightener and the veteran can carry his speed a long way from this spot. (4) ROLAND N ROCK couldn't hack it uncovered last out and faded; he can be on the lead or stalking from the pocket tonight. (3) SHADY CITY is always capable of grinding this type down if close enough.

Race 11

(5) CROSBYS CLAM BAKE put in a stellar effort in defeat last out and may just be a smooth trip away from posting a mild upset. (3) MONEY MAVEN is up in class again but is perfect since arriving locally for Julie Miller. (1) CLEMENTINE DREAM gets a free ride at this level off a win and draws best; can't fault anyone for backing her.

Race 12

(1) SUNFIRE BLUE CHIP went down the road impressively versus the same type and the Takter trainee looms a very short price in the finale. (2) DRUNKEN DESIRE A gets both class and post relief tonight. (3) CAROL'S COMET woke up with a better effort last out upon returning to this level.
