6: Mystic Lake Monster (Bachicha, Jr., Johnson)124/10-1

VIRGIL COLE surged late but just missed last out while finishing third, should enjoy added yardage. PR LADY IN RED was runner-up last race as the favorite. TD CARTEL EXPRESS broke slowly and got bumped out of the gate, deserves another chance.

BLACKS CARTEL has been second-best last two efforts. VODKA AT MOONLIGHT is 4-for-7 in career starts, and got the better of Blacks Cartel last out. V Os FILO cuts back in yardage after finishing off the board last out as the favorite.

9: Cozy Owen (Sanchez, Padilla)119/8-1

10: Mark Him a Winner (Shepherd, McKinley)119/15-1

SABOTAGE is eligible to improve in his second start on the turf course, after a decent effort last race. SUDDENLY SEYMOUR might attempt to run out the clock on the lead, in a field full of pursuers. Ran for place and show honors in lone two turf starts. TRI SPOT looms the late closing threat with his big kick. Came up a dollar short last out, splitting traffic along the way.

10: Solomon (Ramgeet, Lund)120/15-1

FUDGE PROUD has faced much tougher in his brief career but has been on the bench for eight months. Working solidly for his return. PREACHER TIME wore down his opponents down the stretch for a 2-length margin victory last out. Been spruced up with a quick bullet drill. SMOLTZ will try to control a moderate pace and fend off challengers when things get interesting.

15: Lil’ Apollo (Mawing, Bolinger)124/20-1

CALEB’S COMET doesn’t need the lead but might take it with the inside draw and with not much speed in this large group. SLIP AND DRIVE gets jockey switch to A Canchari. ROB’S PAL has early speed, but jockey Lindsay must deal with starting from 13 hole.

8: Classy Shackles (Loveberry, Van Winkle)114/5-2

9: Familiar Rhythm (Hamilton, Bravo)117/6-1

BLACKBERRY BRANDI shook clear from the field last race, breaking her maiden in her second career start. Love the confidence, wheeling back in seven days. MAGIC COWBOY came flying late to get the win last out, after breaking in the air at the start. SMOOTH CRIMINAL, CLASSY SHACKLES and FAMILIAR RHYTHM are first-time starters, with workouts suggesting they’re ready to go.

6: Seynatawnee (Hamilton, Bravo)122/6-1

7: Ryan and Madison (Goodwin, Scherer)122/8-1

The Minnesota Oaks appears to be fairly wide open, with most runners stretching out for the first time. PINUP GIRL is one of the few runners who have been around two turns and was a winner two back at a mile distance. DOUBLE BEE STING keeps improving with each race and ran career-best speed number last out. Filly looks like she should enjoy running two turns. SHIPMATE is all about speed and is the one to catch to get the win.

6: Formidable Force (Mojica, Jr., Bravo)122/10-1

7: Grand Marais (Velazquez, Scherer)122/8-1

The Minnesota Derby goes through the favorite HOT SHOT KID, who has done nothing wrong in his three starts this summer meet. Has been around two turns once, and that too was a win at Oaklawn Park. GRAND MARAIS is usually involved early and will rank higher if rain is in play. Lone win was on a sloppy course. FIREMAN OSCAR will be holding his own after exiting a solid win on the turf course in allowance race.

10: Il Brigante (Loveberry, Robertson)124/9-5

11: Tahkodha Belle (Evans, McFadden)124/20-1

COZZY KINDA LOVE built a big lead and held on for dear life last out to get the win. Look for same approach Saturday. IL BRIGANTE is strictly a late closer and pace scenario should set up nicely for this filly out of the top barn. FOLLOW THE SPIDERS should be prompting the pace with ground-saving rail trip.

5: Malibu Pro (Loveberry, Robertson)122/7-2

6: J P of Galilee (Canchari, Hornsby)124/2-1

J P OF GALILEE jumps off the turf, for a trainer who excels in the surface switch. Doesn’t hurt to get top jock aboard. SOLVE circled the field five wide last out, for a commanding five-length win, moving away with each stride. Top trainer Robertson sends out MALIBU MAX and MALIBU PRO, both major players.
