MEET STATS: 35 - 107 / $168.50  BEST BETS: 5 - 9 / $17.70

Best Bet: BO TOX HANOVER (12th)

Spot Play: JD’S CALEB MAN (9th)


Race 1

(3) CASE SOLVED has been a terror at this level since joining the Banca barn and she can trip out here to take another. (4) BABE'S CHIP stopped on the lead last week but she drops back to the level of her recent win. (1) LITTLE MERMAID N gets serious post relief and will be right there at the wire.

Race 2

(3) AUF WIEDERSEHEN was used a bit too hard last week and gave way late; mare drops to the basement level tonight and can atone. (1) RUNAWAY ROSE was an upset winner two back then tried to get close from the eight hole and faded badly last out; threat from this much-improved post. (2) DENYITTOTHEEND is another sharp claimer on paper from Banca but she's missed almost a month.

Race 3

(4) ZINDERELLA really had no excuse in last week's added-distance event after rating a soft pace; maybe she can rebound here facing a suspect group. (3) GIVEITTOEMSTAIGHT avoided early trouble then jogged. Was she lucky or good? Garcia-Herrera trainee has loads of back class. (2) TASHIA has hung badly in her last three races; tough to endorse for the top spot.

Race 4

(2) REAL AMOR was a good second last week versus similar and she looms large from this inside spot. (1) FREETIME returns locally and she's had some moderate success here. (6) CLIMATE HANOVER keeps getting unlucky at the post draw but she's got the ability to compete here.

Race 5

(3) ALITTLEEASTERMAGIC goes for her third barn in as many starts and she's remained sharp; takes another. (2) MIKALEH needed last week's start and she should be tighter tonight. (1) WEEKEND GETAWAY ships back for Fluet, draws best and adds Sears.

Race 6

(4) ROCKNROLL JEWEL has been on a pretty good form spree for Berry and he will likely he hustling to the front. (1) COLBY JATE shipped back and worked out a decent trip but came up a bit flat late; with speed and the rail spot he's a must-use. (3) BAGS OF MONEY has hit the ticket in his last two at this level.

Race 7

(5) CLEM changed hands last out to the Banca barn but didn't skip a beat with a solid pocket score; consistent sort can repeat. (1) TOP GEAR debuts for Harris off a nice two-move effort. (3) CASHENDASH HANOVER bounced back with a well-rated front end score last week and clearly he fits with these.

Race 8

(2) MAYTIME TERROR finally gets a good post to work with and he was Carlson's choice in this wide-open affair; worth a long look. (5) ANDREW LUCK seems to be hit-or-miss but the ability is there. (4) JUST THAT has been overachieving of late and he should land a share with any sort of decent trip.

Race 9

(6) JD'S CALEB MAN has been super in his two starts since being claimed by Adamczyk and he should offer some value from this spot. (4) DELCO ROCKNROLL lands in a more realistic spot in his second start off the Robinson claim. (1) VENGANCE does have speed and the best draw; obvious exotics candidate.

Race 10

(3) BILLMAR SCOOTER has done nothing of note recently but she's capable of beating these on memory. (2) MY TALLIA IDEAL gets a better post to work with and she'll be more involved. (1) HOOSIER CHATTER had aim last week but hung on the wire; needs more late.

Race 11

(4) CANACO STAR has been insanely sharp for an extended period of time but now she gets sent out for new connections; I'll give her a chance to maintain her edge. (1) MANDY'S MATTJESTY gave way with little excuse last week; maybe she'll do better with a stalking trip. (2) GROUNDED returns to the Banca barn via claim and can show improvement.

Race 12

(1) BO TOX HANOVER has been crying out for an inside post and the gritty mare will take full advantage. (4) PRECIOUS ROSE N also gets some post relief and her effort three back was solid. (3) STORMUNN has been sharp but beware she NEVER seems to win; use underneath.
