    Race 1
    #6 Classic Bo had a very troubled trip last out after putting 3 wins in a row together. Back in for a tag here and looks dangerous. #2 Bottle Walk showed early speed in her last but gave in before the wire to finish 2nd. She may have needed that race off the layoff and should be sharp for this one. #1 Katy's Duchess broke her maiden last time and looks good to land a share here.
