Race 1:  (4) Way to go Trish is back on her best surface and the barn is doing well with limited starters at this meet.  Exacta boxes 4-5, 4-6
Race 2:  (7) Banree shows the best gate work of the two Ward-trained horses and that gives this one the edge.  Exacta boxes 7-4, 7-5
Race 3:  (2) Thirtysilverpieces drops in class and has won on dirt before.  Exacta boxes 2-5, 2-4
Race 4:  (5) Strike Tone won first-time out, suggesting talent, and the barn is red hot at this meet.  Exacta boxes 5-6, 5-4  
Race 5:  (11) Zamquick ran well here in the fall and the switch to Leparoux in this spot is a positive.  Exacta boxes 11-8, 11-6, 11-5.  (If rained off the turf, (12) Bannah is the pick).
Race 6:  (9) She's a True Beauty beat seven rivals in her debut and is training well.  Exacta boxes 9-7, 9-10, 9-2
Race 7:  (7) Keen Pauline drops in class and the turn back in distance is a positive.  Exacta boxes 7-2, 7-5, 7-4
Race 8:  (7) Indian Rainbow had trouble in the US debut last fall and goes for a good layoff trainer in Clement.  Picking up a top local turf rider is a plus, too.  Exacta boxes 7-8, 7-4, 7-1
