6: Takethisdemmi (Arroyo, Rampadarat)119/20-1

7: Cinco Y Cinco (Bell, Robertson)119/9-5

LAW REVIEW posted best speed figures last out pressing the press but settled for place honors. Could find himself on the lead today. CINCO Y CINCO ships up from Arlington Park for the Robertson barn and should be plenty fit as the favorite. CUZAN should improve and be considered a contender. Ran a solid second in lone start in the slop.

2 6 furlongs. State-bred. Fillies and mares. Allowance. Purse: $32,400.

6: Dear Fay (Bell, Robertson)121/3-1

7: Storming the Gates (Keith, Bravo)121/6-1

HOLLY IN APRIL should get nice stalking trip pursuing the pace-setter after a pinched start last out. DEAR FAY might have turned the corner last out with impressive driving win. Steps up a level today. AMAZINGLY KAREN is the one to catch and also steps up in class after gate-to-wire victory last effort.

3 About 1 mile, 70 yards. Turf. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $20,000. Purse: $14,000.

15: Tickle Me Twice (Escobar, Sheehan)123/15-1

16: Parris Island Babe (Franco, Silva)118/12-1

EXCUSEMEPLEASE will try to lead the field to the wire setting slow fractions with Butler aboard. RAMSAY returns to the lawn where she has done her best running after showing little in dirt sprint last out. DEAR HRISHI pressed the pace before weakening against tougher last out.

4 11⁄16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $12,000.

6: Covert Mission (Hernandez, Perez)118/10-1

7: Awesome Year (Franco, Van Winkle)123/9-5

Three-horse race on paper, but leaning toward the outside runner AWESOME YEAR, who ran career race two back at this level and near distance. FORTUNE AFAR seeks third consecutive victory for Midwest Thoroughbreds with Martin remaining aboard pressing the pace. JOSHUA'S JOURNEY was over his head last out in return and should be front-runner.

5 About 1 mile, 70 yards. Turf. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $27,000.

10: Getting Birdie (Keith, Biehler)118/10-1

11: Bourbonology (Goodwin, Rhone)123/10-1

SEEKING LUCK has been facing tougher while tracking pace-setters and should be in the mix down the stretch. Stevens is at the helm for first time. BANDED is a late closer who would appreciate a decent pace scenario; stretches out after four sprint races. VERTICAL LIFT should also appreciate the stretch-out after running second last out to a beast in first turf start of the meet.

6 11⁄16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $5,000. Purse: $12,000.

7: R Skydiver (Martin, Silva)119/9-2

8: Vini Vidi Vinci (Goodwin, Burgess)119/5-1

ASK EDDY took over at the halfway point last out and held on stubbornly as the chalk for the victory in Canterbury debut. COWBOY LUKE enjoyed the sloppy course in all-out driving win with career-best speed figures; rates higher with moisture on the track. MILES HEIR was second-best to our top pick and seeks revenge today. Will be flying late.

7 About 7½ furlongs. Turf. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming $25,000. Purse: $29,000.

8: Saratoga Boot (Von Rosen, Chambers)119/6-1

9: Purest Form (Butler, Rhone)119/5-1

10: Moroccan Brew (Bell, Robertson)123/9-2

HURRICANE LAKE will be tough to beat if he can transfer some of the running style he showed on the West Coast circuit facing tougher fields. I expected better from PUREST FORM in Canterbury debut last month after running on the lawn at Gulfstream Park, where there are always solid fields. We'll draw a line through last race and put him near the top today. SEVEN TUFF's lone two turf starts were both solid runs at Turf Paradise.

8 5½ furlongs. State-bred. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $7,500. Purse: $11,500.

11: Already Ready (Olesiak, Smith)119/8-1

12: Cyclone Canyon (Velazquez, Biehler)123/4-1

IDEAL ASSCHER CUT finished ahead of some of today's foes after pressing the pace and running in holding pattern for place honors. Deserving favorite in this unreliable field. GRAND AND REGAL takes massive plunge and should get a nice price for an upset play second off the layoff. CYCLONE CANYON got off to slow start but managed to make ground in closing. Has tough assignment starting from the 12-hole.

9 300 yards. 2-year-olds. Maiden. Purse: $11,000.

9: Physical Touch (Goodwin, Hunt)122/10-1

10: Jakes No Fool (Buening, Taylor)122/10-1

GOOD EYE should improve second time out after slow start in debut. A PRICELESS GAL gained late but missed hitting the board last out as the favorite. JAKES NO FOOL and ENGINE NUMBER NINE are solid players and must use on tickets.

6: Fun in the Waves (Shaw, Johnson)124/4-1

7: Quick and Sweet (Ruiz, Sharp)126/7-2

8: Noble Wave (Frink, Pride)126/6-1

EXPLOSIVE GUNS drops in class and distance trying to get first gold medal in more than a year. FUN IN THE WAVES always puts up solid numbers and is a dangerous threat as usual. QUICK AND SWEET needs to step it up. Has been fading in late strides but still is a must-use in this group.
