Email

MEET STATS: 137 - 429 / $734.30  BEST BETS: 17 - 34 / $65.00

Best Bet: ROCK ON MOE (1st)

Spot Play: WARRAWEE NEEDY (5th)

 

Race 1

(4) ROCK ON MOE was pretty game for second last week after a tough two-move trip and he should take the next logical step forward from this spot. (6) ART OF ILLUSION needs a bit of luck but he's been pretty good for an extended period of time. (3) KID PK is short on class compared to others but the form is there; consider underneath at a price.

Race 2

(3) BEST SAID was uncovered into a rated pace last week and paid the price late; prior effort was solid and note the Mark Ford barn has been going well recently. (4) STAY UP LATE gets some class relief and looks like a good fit in this 4YO Open event. (5) THE LUNCH PAIL doesn't always like to win but he should be moving well late.

Race 3

(4) ZOOMING gets much-needed class and post relief and the Buter charge will be much more involved tonight. (1) BOUNCING BAX returns locally and she's raced well here in the past. (5) ROLLS BLUE CHIP hails from Burke and must be considered.

Race 4

(1) EXIT CAM took money last week, closed well but had too far to come; expect good things tonight from the rail. (5) BJ'S GUY just missed with better two back and had no chance last week. (3) DREAM OUT LOUD N hasn't come back as sharp this season as his connections would have hoped but he still remains a threat with these.

Race 5

(5) WARRAWEE NEEDY seems to be better and classier than these; millionaire should head to the front and can take these the distance. (1) OUTRAGEOUS ART has been flat in recent efforts but he lands the rail again and could be sitting another pocket trip. (4) UNCLE GOODFELLOW has been sharp in his two starts since the Allard claim.

Race 6

(8) MICHAEL'S POWER jogged last week and he clearly has the early speed to overcome the eight hole assignment; gelding is capable of making it two straight. (4) SAPPHIRE CITY tripped out and was a solid winner in the Levy consolation and he should look for a similar spot tonight. (1) HEEZ ORL BLACK N gets lucky with the best draw and Vallee can hit the bottom of the ticket.

Race 7

(2) SCOTT ROCKS ships from Pocono off a game win for the Oakes barn and he looks like a good fit here; Sears drives. (3) STATESMAN N faces softer here and should be better. (4) TWIN B IMPRESSIVE was solid on the front end disposing of lesser and he can build off that effort.

Race 8

(7) LUMINOSITY was a solid second last out to Bee A Magician, who was surprisingly strong right off the bench; his time to shine tonight. (4) IL MAGO hails from connections who have had a solid meet here; worth a look. (2) FORT VALLEY AS has speed and a good post to work with.

Race 9

(3) IN COMMANDO has been sharp for an extended period of time now for the Ford barn and he may have a clear path to the lead from this spot. (5) POP COP was a big winner versus lesser when last seen locally. (1) AMERICAN FLIGHT has shown the ability to hold his own versus this type.

Race 10

(3) BET THE MOON double-jumps in class off a solid win but he's raced well with this type in the past. (4) MOONLITEONTHEBEACH gets much-needed post relief and he can be more involved from this spot. (5) AMERICAN RAGE fits here but he hasn't been at his best recently.

Race 11

(4) TWEET ME has hit the ticket in her last five starts and she gets away from some tough rivals tonight. (7) THERAPUTIC has surged up the class ladder and looks for his fourth straight. (8) ROSSINI has loads of ability but he's coming off a break and is stuck in a tough eight-hole assignment; perhaps he can rally at a price.

Race 12

(3) SUMMER SMACKDOWN has just missed in his last four; camera-shy type may be able to get the jump on his main rivals tonight, however. (6) VALIDUS DEO is probably the one to beat but the Bamond trainee is stuck outside again; aggressive handling can get it done. (1) SKY IS THE LIMIT faces tougher but can hang around for a share.
