7: Good Eye (Eikleberry, Harris)122/4-1

8: Irish Brew (Suarez Ricardo, Hanson)122/10-1

9: Quick Juice (Torres, Blair)122/8-1

GOOD EYE gets new barn with Eikleberry remaining aboard after three so-so starts; barn does decent with new draftees. JUSTA BUMP ran third in debut and deserves to move forward second time out. QUICK JUICE lures top jockey Torres to remain at the helm after weakening in debut.

2 11⁄16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Starter optional claiming. Purse: $14,000.

5: Freedom First (Butler, Donlin)119/6-1

6: Morganouska (Von Rosen, Schnell)123/3-1

7: Ask Eddy (Martin, Brinson)121/6-1

AWESOME YEAR came back strong for the win after losing in questionable DQ two back driving clear to four-length victory while letting others do the dirty work up front. RATON PASS dug in stubbornly to get the win after sitting off the pace; has been a money-maker in past eight starts. FREEDOM FIRST drops in class and stretches out after some less-than-thrilling performances sprinting.

3 About 11⁄16 miles. Turf. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming $25,000. Purse: $29,000.

6: Vertical Lift (Butler, Rhone)121/5-1

7: Mygreatauntbelle (Shepherd, Turco)119/12-1

MACHORINA gets the stamp of approval and will be shooting for her fifth consecutive win on the turf with Bell as the pilot; likes to be forwardly placed before pouncing on the front-runners. GO GO JILL will be the one to catch; led throughout last race lighting up the board for the win at a big price. FLEET DYNA owns the second spot with four consecutive place efforts; almost caught a nonchalant Machorina down the stretch last out.

4 About 1 mile, 70 yards. Turf. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $25,000.

8: Concorde’s Rebel (S. Stevens, Rhone)118/15-1

9: Itza Twister (Escobar, Kirby)123/5-1

RUSSIAN DANCER is a deep-closing invader from Arlington Park who faced tougher in his two lone starts; would be compromised by a fast pace tonight. TO THE STARS begins turf debut looking for first career win; bred well for the grass. TIGER RUN is your lone pace-setter who could steal it up front if jockey Rivera can dictate leisurely fractions.

5 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $11,000.

8: Arvindra (Goodwin, Brinson)123/6-1

9: Mingo Edge (Ocampo, Tracy)123/8-1

10: Grand Avenue (Barton, Tracy)123/6-1

SCOTTS GAP will be the deserving favorite; narrowly missed last out closing from far back. Speed figures tower over the field. LATE DEVELOPER returns to local area after contaminated running at Prairie Meadows; expect much improvement with Butler hopping back. They won as a duo two back. FRANZ will be sent to the front with Keith in the saddle. Will keep her followers alert with expected quick fractions.

6 1 mile. State-bred. Fillies and mares. Maiden claiming $7,500. Purse: $11,500.

8: Desert Ballad (Escobar, Rhone)123/20-1

9: Kippy Longstocking (Swiontek, McFadden)118/12-1

With not much early speed to look at, I expect CONNIE LEE to get unchallenged lead and possibly sneak away in this struggling maiden field trying two turns for first time. LIL GIZMO is 0-for-16 as the grizzled veteran of the group but gets major opportunity to break her maiden on the class drop. SHAL PAL’S CASTLE has hit the board in past three starts sprinting; looks to have the ability to run today’s distance for first time.

7 6½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $10,000.

7: Thecausewaykid (Butler, Rhone)123/6-1

8: Fort Humbug (Velazquez, Scherer)119/5-1

FORT HUMBUG was overmatched last out at the $50K level and drops here to career lowest level. Has early speed to keep front-runner honest pressing the pace. THIS GUY should show inside speed cutting back in distance as the probable one to catch. HOLA WILDCAT, SLEEP WALKING and BARCELONA KID are all major players in this evenly matched field.

8 John Bullit Stakes. 11⁄16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Purse: $35,000.

6: Moe Man (Shepherd, Wilkes)118/6-1

7: Al Musaddad (Keith, Biehler)118/12-1

8: Common Sense (Butler, Rhone)120/6-1

GLOBAL STAGE thrashed the field last out at Prairie Meadows with career-best performance; newly claimed gelding for Silva barn is talented enough to duplicate that running. MOE MAN stumbled out of the gate and lost his jockey last out but has ability to bounce back and have a game showing without the early issues. WILD JACOB has good early and late speed, allowing jockey Eikleberry to choose where he wants to sit for pace setup.

9 6½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $12,500. Purse: $14,000.

4: Sam Wayne (Bell, Riecken)123/5-1

5: Unlawful Detainer (Eikleberry, Silva)123/5-2

6: Gadzooks (Franco, Silva)119/8-1

UNLAWFUL DETAINER could prove tough with anything close to last effort, where he just missed after pressing the pace; should enjoy terrific position sitting off the pace. RUNNIN ON DIESEL swung six wide to get up for win last out at Prairie Meadows. Has two wins in three starts. SO HONORED comes off the shelf from summer vacation for new barn. Could pull the mild upset if ready.
