5: Mr Shiver (Joubert, Hanson)118/5-2

6: Dark Captain (Butler, Diodoro)118/9-5

7: Tahkodha Royale (Hernandez, Sheehan)123/2-1

TAHKODHA ROYALE has had a million chances facing tougher and now drops in facing softer. Have to use because of favorable speed figures and with the drop in class. DARK CAPTAIN finished runner-up last two out. Has a fighting chance going to the front and lulling the field to sleep. MR SHIVER will come rolling late but needs a better start.

4: Ball and Chain (A.Canchari, Robertson)119/5-2

5: Manille (Butler, Robertson)123/9-5

6: Tiz Lately (Hernandez, Berndt)119/8-1

MANILLE enters with consecutive wins. Projects to stalk the frontrunners. CIARAN’S PRIZE comes in off impressive stakes win and too will sit in the wind tunnel behind the wall of speed. BALL AND CHAIN is all about speed and will be involved in a spirited pace from the start. Had four straight wins before losing as the chalk last out.

6: John’s Luck (Velazquez, Heitzmann)117/5-2

7: Politicallycorrect (A.Canchari, Robertson)119/6-1

Love that gutsy win by HOLD FOR MORE in the Minnesota Sprint Championship. Not sure he will get the quick pace scenario today. JOHN’S LUCK will be involved early. POLITICALLYCORRECT cuts back in distance for first sprint effort in nearly a year for strong connections.

8: Redneck Richie (Lopez Jr., Cole)123/4-1

9: Mr. Fuzzybottom (A.Canchari, Tracy Jr.)123/4-1

Anything close to last effort should put MOON GUN back in the winner’s circle. Expect jockey Mojica to stalk the pace. RED N BLACK ATTACK has tactical speed to be on or near the pace. Disappointed as the favorite last three out. MR. FUZZYBOTTOM was second best last race while prompting the pace. Consistent runner usually gets a share.

5 About 1 mile, 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $7,500. Purse: $14,500

11: Gentle as a Breeze (Ramgeet, Van Winkle)123/9-2

12: Saturday’s Light (Delorme, Padilla)123/12-1

VANDERBOOM RIDGE returns to the sod where he does his best running. Expect jockey Butler to take responsibility on the lead. GENTLE AS A BREEZE will be on the heels of Vanderboom Ridge pushing the pace. Cutback in distance should help. TIGER D has never been in a field this soft.

8: Mnms Slamin Quien (Velazquez, Tracy Jr.)119/15-1

9: Kelamonster (Nolan, Robertson)119/3-1

BERRY SMART ran well enough last out in the slop with early speed to take seriously at a price. Love that Canchari remains aboard. KELAMONSTER is first-time starter with a strong series of works for the Robertson barn. JOHNNY THE JET and SUDDENLY SEYMOUR are must-use coming from off the pace.

8: Deja l’Etoile (A. Canchari, Scherer)123/5-2

9: Kipper Key (Velazquez, McShane)123/8-1

TRIDENT HERO ran second on a muddy track last out and should enjoy a fast track. DEJA l’ETOILE returns to the one-turn event and should have no problem carrying his speed to the stretch run. KIPPER KEY will cut loose late. Needs snappy fractions to get the job done

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Pensador (Mojica, Bravo)122/8-1

5: King George (Delorme, Sweere)122/20-1

6: Best of the Bleu’s (Goodwin, Sharp)117/20-1

ONE FINE DREAM is deserving big favorite and enters with four straight wins at Prairie Meadows against tough competition. Speed figures tower the field and will be a single on most Pick 4 tickets. NO HOLDS BARRED too ships up from Iowa and finished second behind top pick last out. PENSADOR has look of outside contender but will have to step it up to get the win.
