Race 2

I will try (3) RULE BY STRENGTH tonight to pull off the upset. (6) GET PACKIN has speed and gets class relief. (1) JON WIN put in a game effort for the score at Monticello last week.

(4) SAMS TREASURE might be waking up, so with that said, this guy can top these at his best. (5) DONTAKEYOURGUNS put in a game try for the place spot last time around. (7) MYRAS HIHO could land a share.

Race 4

I will take a chance on (2) JULIAS SONG N to get the job done against this weak field. (7) RUNAWAY ROSE & (5) LITTLE MERMAID N both have speed.

Race 5

(1) MARIE THE ARTIST is a sharp pacing mare. She can get it done once again. (2) PEMBROKE CUDDLES moves down the ladder. (3) DENYITTOTHEEND could have a say with these.

Race 6

(5) CARNEGIE could be ready to fire his best; worth a try if the price is right. (2) CASH VALUE closed strongly for the show spot last time out. (8) GAELIC AND GARLIC could fare well from the 8-hole.

Race 7

Philly invader (6) KITTYS PRO GIRL is good enough to make tonight a winning one. (2) LIZZIES DREAM put in a mild bid in her recent try. (3) BABES BISTRO could hang around for a share.

Race 8

With the move down in class, (1) CAT CORA could boss these gals at her best. (6) CRAZY LUV BIG raced evenly in her previous trip. (4) CHAROLETTES MAGGIE has tactical speed.

Race 9

(5) CHANG DYNASTY fits with this group and his latest from the 8-hole was sharp. (4) DREAMLUCK flashed good speed in his most recent trip. (6) ACTIVATOR rallied strongly for win honors last week.

Race 10

I'll try (1) TOUGH LOVE against this group to mow these down in the stretch. (3) ORIENTAL CARPET could be right in the mix with the post relief. (4) VESUVIO GRANDE has hit the board in his last five tries.

Race 11

(5) ALTERNAT THURSDAYS seems fit and ready to return to his winning ways. (7) EXTRACURRICULAR rallied well for the place spot last time around. (4) IDLE TIME has fine speed to be a factor in here.

Race 12

This looks like a perfect spot for (2) WILDFIRE OSBORNE to get the job done. (7) BEST BUSINESS is very sharp and is the main danger. (5) LATE FLYIN N will be closing in the final strides.
