MEET STATS: 38 - 119 / $181.90  BEST BETS: 6 - 10 / $20.70

Best Bet: SANTANNA ONE (4th)

Spot Play: HANG TEN (12th)


Race 1

(3) BURKENTINE HANOVER gets some class and post relief tonight and he's got a decent history here. (1) SPINARAMA also drops, draws best and driver Siegelman should get very aggressive from this spot. (2) TWIN B HOLLISTER should be saving ground and he should have something left for the finish.

Race 2

(5) O'SUNDLAND was dead-game in defeat from the eight hole upon dropping to this more realistic level; Stalbaum will be firing to the front and will look to take these the distance. (1) HI HO STEVERINO lands all the way inside and he figures to sit the trip. (4) TAURANGA was aggressively handled upon arrival and despite tiring it was an encouraging effort.

Race 3

(5) IN COMMANDO has paced evenly in three local efforts versus better after shipping from Canada; Mark Ford trainee could be ready for more tonight. (1) IDEAL FASHION stormed home versus lesser just five days ago, now he draws best; big threat. (2) LAWGIVER HANOVER was turned away while uncovered into a rated pace the other day; Vallee can sit here and shake free with pace.

Race 4

(2) SANTANNA ONE raced well last out for a share. Tonight he returns to Bartlett, lands another good post and seems a touch better than these. (1) GOOD DAY MATE doesn't win all that often but he's perfectly capable of being right there at the wire. (6) POP COP tries Sears tonight off a couple of uninvolved efforts; watch the board for some clues with this one.

Race 5

(4) ATOCHIA returns locally and makes his second start since 2013. Remember, he was the Levy champ a few seasons ago. (6) TWIN B FAMOUS won't pass horses late but he does have sharp early speed which can land him in a good spot. (1) PANONGAHELA inherits the rail spot with the early stratch of Eighteen and he should be able to hang around for a share.

Race 6

(2) MCERLEAN was a razor-sharp winner last out and from this inside spot he should be well within striking range again. (1) MICHAEL'S POWER has all the controlling speed in here and he lands the best draw. (8) TAKE IT BACK TERRY is stuck outside yet again, totally devoid of any luck in this open draw. Sharp sort should be able to pass some rivals for a share.

Race 7

(3) CLASSIC GENT was a bit overmatched in his last two versus Open types; gelding gets some needed class relief and he's reunited with Dube. (4) KIWI IDEAL N was a solid runner-up last out after a rugged uncovered try; import is capable of taking all here. (2) LIFE UP FRONT finally put it all back together last out and he's got the back class.

Race 8

(1) HOLDINGALLTHECARDS tackles tougher but he lands the coveted rail spot again and he's sharp enough to handle these. (6) WARRAWEE NEEDY has a ton of early speed at his disposal but he may face some early opposition. (3) AMERICAN RAGE has two wins and a second in his last three and he clearly fits here.

Race 9

(3) THE LADIES MAN was much better last out and the Burke trainee should be close up throughout in this tough-to-figure event. (4) DONAU steps up off three very sharp efforts.  (5) I FOUND MY BEACH is clearly a speed threat but he's gonna have to dig in late.

Race 10

(6) P H SUPERCAM was aggressively handled from the eight hole and almost lasted the distance; Bamond trainee has maintained his edge so far in 2015 and he's the one to beat despite the outside post. (1) MICKEY HANOVER gave way weakly from the pocket last out with no excuse and he will look to rebound here. (5) BAD BOY MATT acclimated nicely with a second place effort to Mcerlean.

Race 11

(4) HEEZ ORL BLACK N has quickly proven that he belongs with these Saturday night types and he can take this with any sort of live steer from Vallee. (2) TALKING BLUES is back up in class off a sharp score. (3) SOURCE OF PRIDE has failed to get involved in his last two after beating lesser but he gets post relief tonight.

Race 12

(4) HANG TEN has been in tough spots in his last three but has finished those races decently enough to hint that he's still sharp; this looks like a very realistic spot tonight. (1) SOMETHINGINTHEWIND gets class and post relief in his second 2015 start. (5) VALIDUS DEO moves in a couple of spots and could be a late threat.
