Email

MEET STATS: 347 - 1015 / $1,883.80

BEST BETS: 46 - 84 / $152.80

Best Bet: UPFRONTWHOSURLADY (2nd)

Spot Play: HERETIC FRANCO N (3rd)

 

Race 1

(3) GIDDY UP DELIGHT has come up a touch short in his last few tries but they have been good efforts; veteran should be on the move early. (8) FRATERNITY is razor-sharp for Bartlett/Milici but has to overcome the eight hole again. (6) WELL TO DO ships in, now in a new barn, and can be given a look at a big price.

Race 2

(4) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY debuts for Milici via claim, picks up the top driver and will be heading to the front. (1) DELICIOUSLYNAUGHTY was uncovered a long way last week and held well for a board spot. (7) FRESH SQUEEZED has been very sharp in his last two but is stuck with another poor post.

Race 3

(6) HERETIC FRANCO N has been a disappointment since arriving in the U.S. but she drops to the bottom level tonight and faces an equally questionable field here. (2) FANCY DESIRE returns locally and has loads of back class. (7) FREETIME showed some live moves when she raced here last year.

Race 4

(5) IDEAL NUGGETS put in a big two-move effort in defeat versus better last week; tough to look past from this spot. (2) NEFERTITI BLUE CHIP backed up from the pocket last out but clearly the Bamond trainee is better than that. (1) WRAPPED TO GO steps up in class looking for three straight but she is unproven at this level.

Race 5

(2) GEISHA GIRL N just missed at this level two back and she draws inside what she needs to beat. (3) KEENE OLIVIA gets much-needed post relief and will be much more involved. (4) HEAVENS LEGACY is a good fit with these but hasn't won in some time.

Race 6

(3) WYNBERG COURAGE N beat these two bask with Lasix added and the import may have more to offer. (1) ARTSMAH missed a nose to a classy rival last out and he draws best again. (2) I'M SUPERSONIC A was shuffled a bit last out as the winner cleared; don't hold that against him.

Race 7

(5) ALBERTO CONTADOR N has faced much better than these in the past with some success; veteran can be tighter in his third start back from vacation. (1) LIGHTNING RAIDER also gets class relief and draws best; huge threat. (6) MACON GEORGIA A was a sharp upset winner last week and can be considered.

Race 8

(3) PASULTIMATEDELITE N made a very untimely break last out at Pocono and prior to that she was facing much better locally; mare clearly deserves top billing. (1) GADSDEN HANOVER could not sustain to the wire last week; gets another crack from the rail. (7) MILLWOOD FAITH N has been good in her last three with Lasix added; consider underneath at a price.

Race 9

(4) SAM'S ESCAPE has been dull recently but he gets class relief and lures Bartlett. (2) BACKUP A was a very sharp winner two back against similar. (1) ARTIST NIGHT goes for another new barn via claim and has been sharp recently.

Race 10

(5) UNION MAN HANOVER could not sustain a two-move effort last week; a smoother trip can get it done. (1) SMOOTH CRIMINAL was claimed again out of last, where he never fully fired in a fast mile; good inside spot helps his cause. (4) GYPSY LEATHER finally put it all together and was dead game winning last week.

Race 11

(1) WESTERN BAYAMA has been sneaky-sharp in all recent and he gets the post relief he needs to push him over the top. (3) CHOCOLATE CRACKERS debuts for Milici off the claim and has that Bartlett guy driving. (5) IDEALBEACH HANOVER drops in class and he's capable of blowing these away if in the mood.

Race 12

(7) MASSIVE ATTACK A is done no favors by the post draw but he's had some success facing much better. (3) OUR ELS DREAM N had no excuse last week; she's better than that. (6) BABY REMIND ME drops back to the level of her last win.
