7: Bdb Iam a Tres Knud (S. Ricardo, Hanson)124/12-1

8: Wilena Featured (Valero, Willis)124/8-1

JESS PAINT YOUR LIPS is the cream of the crop to start the day and looks extremely tough to beat. DIANAS TRES SEIS and CANDYS LITTLE WAGON have favorable speed numbers and are top choices to use underneath.

8: Hr Chatter Wagon (Goodwin, C.-Hill)124/10-1

9: Eagles Span (Salazar, Olmstead)124/9-5

EAGLES SPAN seeks third consecutive win and draws ideal outside post. ROCK CANDY SA has fighting chance in first stop at Canterbury, strong connections who will draw money at the betting windows. JUSTIFIED and THIS DOLL CA RUN both enter off driving victories.

8: Valiant Norther (Montoya, Hardy)124/10-1

9: Jam (Smith, Hunt)124/20-1

FERRARI JAMES is consistent money maker and class of the field. KOKKO WAGON has never been off the board including three wins. BELLA NONNA is usually a dependable foe but got off slowly last out, could shock with clean break.

6: Bearing North (Butler, Rhone)123/6-1

7: Derbigny (Lopez,Jr.,Tubbs)123/7-2

KNIGHTINMODERATION broke sharply last out and controlled the speed up front but failed to hold for the win. Expect same speedball technique with company joining him near the lead. YA MON drops to cheaper version off the turf and should be plenty fit while closing late. DERBIGNY caught a muddy track last out setting the pace and tired when things got interesting. Might last longer on fast track.

7: Valet (Swiontek, Livingston)123/2-1

8: Hrishi Suprem (S.Bethke, Danger)123/12-1

VALET is allowance dropper with tactical speed who should get perfect stalking journey and cut loose when things unfold in front of him. BOLD ENTRY returns to sprinting after humdrum effort running longer in first race of the season a month back.

Moving down in class should help second time out. THE GENT IS A CAT might be the one to catch with Canchari aboard with no true front runner in the field. Wide open race with many ways to go.

9: Houdini Hill (Coddington, Fields)123/15-1

MOGILNY steps up a notch after confidence building gate-to-wire win by triple lengths. NEVER HIDE moves down in class after a four wide useful effort at Prairie Meadows last out finishing in the 4th spot. BACK FROM AFRICA has been in the money last five races including a couple gold medals, looms the late closing threat.

16: Anxious Dreams (Martin, Jr., Diodoro)119/8-1

I’ll give MALIBU PRO a pass last out off the layoff while sprinting on the turf against much tougher. Not a ton of pace in the field, so expect Canchari to gun it out of the gate. HUALAHUISES has speed figures that match up well with this group and might enjoy ground saving rail trip with his one dimensional middle move. MR. ARTURO ran second-best last out at this level swinging six wide, should enjoy extra yardage.

11: Xans Storm (Joubert, Hanson)119/10-1

12: Shot of Joe (Rosier, Sheehan)123/20-1

Extremely wide open maiden race to start the Late Pick 4. JOHNNY THE JET got up for second best last out after contaminated start, could be sharp at a price with healthy beginning. DAKOTAROAN has been third best in both starts at huge prices, maybe best used underneath. MINNESOTA OUTLAW jumps off the turf after fading a effort and returns to sprinting on the dirt where I feel he’s most comfortable. PERFECT KARMA has solid work tab coming in with his presentation to racing.

MORE ON TAP switches to top jock after a DQ and place finish last two races. Tough if runs anything near those two speed figures. SIOUX HOCKEY changes jerseys but not jockey after a couple of red ribbon finishes at today’s distance, should be in the hunt from the start. DAY SIX and ALPINE GATHERING are destined to duel at swift fractions with all others in pursuit.

8: Sky Surfer (DelormePadilla)123/3-1

OMAHA HURRY should enjoy the extra furlong after running out of real estate last time out while closing late. Deserving favorite but slight concern with lack of group speed to rally on. SKY SURFER lost his jockey last race after clipping heels with rival, well worthy of another chance to regain previous form. EXPRESS RIVER too deserves a mulligan after poor break last effort on the turf. Looks to rebound to form he exhibited down in Texas before heading north.

ALWAYS A CHANCE looks awfully tough to beat here coming off a five length clearing victory for the Diodoro barn. I’M A SOUTHERN DIVA ran third to Always A Chance and could move one step forward with Butler remaining aboard. MY PLACE OR PLACE and CASSIDLY will round out the skinny part of my exotic ticket.
