1st - In Sunday's 1st, Art of the Game was bet 1st out for a reason, and with a clean break today should prove tough to beat.
2nd - I am hoping for similar with Alexa in the 2nd race. With a clean break she has a big chance to wire these.
3rd - Tricky 3rd race, but I am hoping for enough speed to get Escape Artist home. Invocation is logical and Comandante is my longshot throw in.
4th - I'm not trying to beat Madam I'm Adam in the 4th, but could use any of 4-7-6-2 in the early Pick-4.
5th - I do not get the appeal of Bashart stretching out in the 5th, and would try to beat him. High Ransom is a longshot that I like. 3-7-4-5.
6th - The 6th is a war. I went with Street Lord. Read the Proposal is also logical and Alcolite might be a price worth throwing in.
7th - The 7th is wide open, but MY Uptown Gal did have traffic issues last time, and likely does better today.
8th - Tapicat will be very hard to beat, at a short price, in the Lake Placid given both her ability and likely tactical edge.
9th - Channel Marker and Shadow Rock are the 2 for me in the 9th, with Shadow Rock very possible to turn the tables from their last meeting.
10th - In the 10th, tough to go against Sheppard ( Aflutter ) & Three Streets ran well last time in a suspect race. Bank Float can improve too. 294
11th - The 2 with experience, 7&10, look tough in the finale. I could also throw in Coronette. Good luck to all today. It should be another great day.
