7: Smarties (Golibrzuch, Miller)124/9-2

EAGLE RISING dueled but faded last out but should improve second time off the layoff for top QH trainer Hardy. SMARTIES last effort was a clear victory on the local venue last August. PANTHER PRIZE ME has been training well off the long absence.

5: Hrishi Suprem (Keith, Bethke)123/5-2

6: Jumpin Jimineys (Butler, Fauchald)123/12-1

HRISHI SUPREM was bumped after the start but managed strong bid running three wide to get up for place landing last out. Could be tough foe with clean break. REGARDS drops from allowance after being a non factor to start the season on opening weekend, merits respect on the drop in class. SAM’S SILVER STAR might need a race off the seven month layoff but could get in the money gimmicks underneath.

15: Deja l’Etoile (Velazquez, Scherer)118/8-1

MR LEWIS has been facing much tougher out of state and should be plenty fit for his Canterbury debut. Would love to see pace battle up front as he will be rolling late with veteran jockey Martin aboard. COSTAUD won gate to wire last out off the two month sabbatical and now gets top jockey Butler as the pilot, could prove tough if Butler hits the cruise control button for first half mile in the lead. LIFE A RILEY gave a couple of game efforts last two out but just came up short, should appreciate tonight’s longer distance.

15: Mostly Mozart (Eikleberry, Scherer)117/8-1

16: Permit to Carry (Goncalves, Silva)117/10-1

CASTLEDERG will be my top selection if he gets in off the AE list. Gelding has been facing stronger fields down south and will get perfect pace scenario to cut loose on with his strong closing kick. SIR SEARSUCKER enters with three consecutive wins under his belt and now steps up a level against the big boys. ETON RIDGE has class advantage over most his rivals and now stretches out after sprint win last out while drawing away.

SKIERS GOLD has been training smartly for first stop in thoroughbred racing, bullet drill in last workout. SKIING ON BUTTER is another beginner with strong work tab coming in for debut, perfect field for these first timers. G ROAD should show early speed after finishing for show money last out pressing the pace.

8: Orfan Ole (Swiontek, Kane)123/3-1

PLENTY OF SUN was second best in debut after advancing the long way around the track. Expect jockey Franco to sit off the pace as the huntsman for first shot at the pace setters. I expect ORFAN OLE and ARCHARCHMONARACH to hook up in early duel coming from their respected outside posts, both finished second last out after leading late.

8: Five Seasons (Carreno, Diodoro)123/9-5

FIVE SEASONS appears the one to beat with his favorable speed figures shipping up from Oaklawn Park, slight concern of giving way and coming up empty last out. TRUCKIN did just that with strong driving win last out at Turf Paradise, should enjoy extra furlong with his late rush. GEORGE RAY is consistent runner who is usually hanging around down the stretch.

7: Hiteckboogie (Murphy, Keen)123/3-1

8: Sudden Tempest (Butler, Sheehan)123/12-1

ORIENTAL SECRET drops for over half the price shipping up from Tampa Bay Downs, look for the filly to come from off the pace leaving others behind. GOLDEN CARAT won her lone start while flying late and getting her picture taken, no reason not to duplicate that effort. Stablemate COUNTRY COUNTESS, too won last out for trainer Silva and should be forwardly placed pursuing the front runners.

8: Hummin Through (Escobar, Donlin)118/12-1

MACHO STORM ducked at the break last out but rushed up for improved position to get up for third. Needs better gate exit on the stretch out to two turns to save some energy for later stages. LOCKEDUPFOREVER and STEVIEFROMSTANLEY also stretch out to two turns and could enjoy the longer distance after a couple of hum-drum efforts sprinting.
