RACE ONE (DOUBLE -  2-3, 2-6, 7-3, 7-6 / PICK-5 - 2,7 w 3,6 w 2,7 w 4 w 4)

7-CHEEKY LITTLE MINX...post hurt chances in last.  Has huge brushing power. Can benefit off quick panels.

2-OLD OAK...finally got elusive win in last. Does step up a notch but recent form warrants consideration here.

1-PC’S ALLEYWAY...except for miscue three starts back, been very sharp. Should sit cozy throughout the mile.

RACE TWO                                              

3-ROCKNAPOWERSTROKE...finally drew better post here. Look for quarter move to the front from this post.

6-PAPARAZZI PRINCE...doesn’t win often but showed some strong pace while double-bubbled in last--:27.4.

2-REVENANT...lightly raced youngster had a very tough journey in last but showed courage when it counted.

RACE THREE (PICK-6 - 2,7 w 4 w 4 w 1,7,8 w 5,6,7 w 7)

7-LEGEND FIELD...was bothered in last. Had some decent trot middle stages of the mile. Dips to amiable spot.

2-FLASHY LADY...comes off solid win from 9 post in last wiring competition. Stays put in same class. Danger.

6-KAMIKAZE LINDY...made confident quarter move in last but hung out to dry. Did hold very well, though.

RACE FOUR (PENTAFECTA - 4 w 1,2,3 w 1,2,3 w 1,2,3,5,8 w 1,2,3,5,8)

4-FLEETWOOD HALL...enjoying rejuvenation with Rick. Very sharp backside m”oo”ve in last in handy triumph.

3-KABU...left a tad in last to settle in garden spot then sat chilly before finding room inside in lane. Contends.

2-SOUTHWIND STRYKER...probably was best last time but early miscue cost him 10 lengths or so. Dangerous.

RACE FIVE                                                  

4-IM AN ART MAJOR...stays put in same class after showing backside blitz when given room to roam. Fast!

6-Y S JOE...dips down to a more amiable situation here. Can swallow lots of oxygen & can grind a long way.

3-DANZA...went first up in last but winner’s :27.4 finale too tough to handle. Still, compares well with others.

RACE SIX (PICK-4 - 1,7,8 w 5,6,7 w 7 w 1)

1-JLS TOO HOT TAJ...lolly-gagged well back in last and got caught up in backside mix-up. Cozily close in here.

8-RAMZAN...left in last from post 9 but hung out to dry like wet laundry. Picks up live cover this time around.

7-DC FLASHBACK...gets out the Open 2 class to much more friendly surroundings. Could be on the engine.


6-DIVINATION...been sharp last few starts & pulled off major upset with strong first over bid. Love the form.

5-BAD ANGEL...actually showed some good trot the final half mile in last. Could be on the choo-choo train.

7-M T UR POCKETS...when in the mood, she has very strong brushing power. Who shows up--3 yo or 10 yo?


7-BEIGNET...warrior had a tough journey in last but still showed willing pace final 3/8s of the mile. Edge here.

5-FOUR STARZ ALEX...was involved in a bang-bang finish as speed demon came back to field late. Good form.

4-HILLCREST BIGDADDY...not much on paper these days but gave hint in last with good backside pace--28.2.

RACE NINE (SUPER HI-5 - 1 w 2 w 4,5,6 w 4,5,6 w ALL)

1-PEENIE...warrior dips back down to spot where he won two starts back. Drew rail & should be sitting cozy.

2-CAM’S ORACLE...in new hands for this after win in “6’s.” Probably on the choo-choo train when gate opens.

6-CABO REAL...showed some backside pace in last and continued strong to the wire. Picks up live cover here.

4-TERANADAWN...loves to be in the thick of things from the get go. Equipment problem in last had no effect.

5-MACH IT PAIDEN...kind of an “even-steven” effort in last but did show some pace deep in the lane. On tkt.
