Spot Play: SON OF NORDIC (2nd)

Race 1

(5) DINAH ROSS usually brings a big effort at this level and gets a better post to work with this week. (4) CS KENTUCKY drops down and could get involved at a decent price. (7) PAY TRIBUTE has only been defeated at this level once since August and that came when she drew outside; underlay?

Race 2

(5) SON OF NORDIC arrives from the Midwest in fine form. Gelding was here earlier this year and defeated much better than he faces tonight. (1) ROSE RUN LINO finally gets a good post to work with; wakes up? (3) TSMLIL ORPHAN ANDY seems to be coming into form.

Race 3

(4) BAY FISHEN DOC was handled conservatively last time, but from the improved post against this weak field, it is time to flash some speed. (1) PASS THE DECK has the inside advantage, which is a big plus in this field. (3) ARTS BLAZE looks like a player if nearly four week layoff doesn't affect him.

Race 4

(1) MICHELLES IDEA gets post and class relief on Thursday. Mare lured driver Brian Sears off a Rene Allard trainee. (2) BUDGIRLS HANOVER should be sitting first or second; big threat. (4) CHESCA GIRL couldn't handle a tough trip recently; don't ignore her.

Race 5

(6) FIRE IN THE CELL gets to face mostly lower claimers this week and the added distance race should mean an easy path to the front off the gate. (5) GRAND VICTORY comes off a sharp effort. (1) ANTHONYSKYWALKER hails from the team of Allard and Sears.

Race 6

(2) PASSION R VIRGINIE has been a star since joining the Brittany Robertson barn; staying here. (5) SAMS SHUFFLE is another sharp mare. She should offer some value. (1) ANOTHER HANOVER certainly has a chance but seems likely to be overbet. (6) PEMBROKE BOW BOW changes barns off a win.

Race 7

(4) DENYITTOTHEEND drops down and gets a new set of hands at the lines; good angles. (1) CAMPHOR HANOVER draws well this week for a top barn. (2) DUEL CHEEKS ships back to Yonkers at a reduced level.

Race 8

(4) FAIR VOLTAGE comes down from upstate and seems to fit with this bunch. Perhaps Sears can wake her up. (5) MILEYS BIG WORLD makes her second start off the bench. She draws better and drops down; big threat. (3) ALWAYS LOVE ME is another getting some class relief.

Race 9

(1) SAMS ESCAPE is right at home at this level. He should be tough from the cones. (3) IDYLWOOD PHOENIX looks for his third straight. (4) DEFIANCE N comes off a win and hails from a powerful barn.

Race 10

This race is wide open on paper. I'll try (3) SAM SWIFTY, who is as fast as any in here when she gets a clean trip. (4) APACH OF LUCK looks like the favorite and the one who will be firing off the gate. (1) FLYING MOCHA should protect her inside position and be involved. (2) MY DEAL has put in some good races lately. (7) GIVEITTOMESTAIGHT hails from a good barn and has Brennan.

Race 11

(1) LE SENATEUR A L dropped and popped last time; again. (4) BINGO QUEEN seems to get stronger as the race gets longer. She is a clear threat if she minds her manners. (3) CANTAB ABS puts in a decent performance every week.

Race 12

(1) GROUNDED moves inside this week and adds Brennan. (6) MY IDEAL HANOVER drops way down in class; must use. (5) ADDYS WAY ships in with some credentials.
