5: Setnmupknocknmdown (Eikleberry, Donlin)123/3-1

6: Joshua’s Journey (Canchari, Lund)123/2-1

JOSHUA’S JOURNEY will try to lead the field to the wire in cruise control as lone pace-setter in a field full of followers. SETNMUPKNOCKMDOWN will string along and get first attempt at the front runner; consistent runner is usually hanging around down the stretch. T. THOMAS had a poor start last out and should improve with clean break closing late.

6: Casa de Cambio (Eikleberry, Hop)119/7-2

7: Gadsden Purchase (Rivera, Oliver)119/10-1

CASA DE CAMBIO gets class relief coming up from Turf Paradise and is the main threat closing late, should have decent pace to zoom in on. LEMON JUICE ran a four-wide bid for second best last out in his best race in a long time. Has no reason not to keep moving forward. PARADISE ROCK looks to be the speed of the race as the one to catch. Won last out going gate-to-wire in a four-length victory.

3 5 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming$4,000. Purse: $9,500.

6: Tanabata (Shepherd, Hawley)123/4-1

7: Intercompany Loan (Canchari, Scherer)119/9-2

8: Husker (Henson, Walker)119/8-1

TANABATA sprinted away last effort at 4 furlongs while being ridden out as the heavy favorite. Trainer Hawley is hitting 45 percent in the consecutive win category. PEARLZ GIRL should get the perfect set-up if meltdown occurs up front while schlepping along behind the speed. Expect SPARKLE NATION and KVELL A LITTLE to keep the top pick company in what looks to be a screaming’ pace duel.

4 1 mile. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $28,500.

4: Affirmed Cure (Castro, Peters)121/8-1

5: Sneaky Blowout (Martin, Scherer)121/3-1

6: Sheer Trick (Hernandez, Brinson)121/9-5

SHEER TRICK appears to be the one to beat coming off a closing win and has class edge on his players in the field. Crafty veteran can sit off the pace or close from far back. SNEAKY BLOWOUT was never a threat last out at Churchill Downs after a a nice win at Gulfstream Park in a hard-fought duel. Could come back fighting with newly claimed barn. MOJUMBO reruns to running on dirt after three lawn races, strong trainer angle for Valorie Lund.

7: Money Buy You (Canchari, Rarick)119/9-5

8: Hes a Preacher (Olesiak, Wekseth)123/8-1

MONEY BUY YOU will be seeking his third consecutive victory in three attempts shipping up from Tampa. Dictated the pace last out before shaking clear to 10-length romp. YOU’RE MY BUDDY drops a level and regains last year’s top pilot Dean Butler. Should enjoy the class relief when making closing run. SUGAR BUSINESS is a tough read coming off the long layoff but faced tons better last season, including stake races.

6 5 1/2 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming$6,250. Purse: $10,500.

8: Velocity (Eikleberry, Hanson)119/6-1

9: This Is the Bizz (Rivera, Bethke)123/15-1

GELDAUTOMAT ships in from Santa Anita for the Diodoro barn. Appears the one to beat as the heavy favorite and is a good bet first off the claim. BILLSBYJIMMY ships up from Oaklawn after a trio of non committal performances, but drop in class and early speed puts him in the mix. PEACH JUICE and TWO CHANCE invade from Fonner Park after both getting show honors last out.

7: Granny Joy (Butler, Rengstorf)123/6-1

8: Holiday N Newport (Lopez, Diodoro)123/5-2

CIRCULAR LOGIC will be tough if runs back to form from any of her races down at Turf Paradise, hitting the board in all four starts, including two wins. HOLIDAY N NEWPORT should keep the front runner honest sitting outside pressing the pace. Deserving M/L favorite ships in from Santa Anita for trainer Diodoro. ONLY ANNIE PEACH could be the rabbit to catch but will have to be at her best holding off her opponents.

5: Hidden Edge (Keith, Biehler)121/7-2

6: Spinning Steel (Carreno, Oliver)117/3-1

Tough to separate the field in the nightcap but I’ll give the nod to REASON’S HARVEST on the class edge. Should also get a great view of the scramble to the lead by a few of her rivals. EARL’S GIRL, JUSTAPURDYBIRDIE, and HIDDEN EDGE will be in a three-way battle royal for the lead at a expected frantic pace, one could come out unscathed and be tough to finish off at the end.
