    Race 1
    #6 Tracking the Cat just missed last out for Md $50K. The drop in class is a bit suspicious after the good run for $50K but can’t pick against him. #3 Discreetly Firm showed little in his first back off the brief freshener but adds blinkers this time and past form suggest he can be competitive at this level. #1 Majestic Heir also adds blinkers and drops in class. He is moving back to the sprint after trying a route of ground last time.

    Race 6
    #7 Holly Field is making his 3rd career start and brings the best last Beyer figure. Beaten favorite last 2 outs but looks good to redeem himself here. #3 Shareholder Value just missed in his last and definitely poses a threat with these. #4 Red Bo is a firster from the Casse barn and works suggest he is well prepared.
