*D: Went down 2 or more betting notches and finished 4th or worse

4th race – (7) Princess Ulele takes a big class drop and looks best in this spot. (6) Don’t Get Khozy hit the board in her last two starts and should be the main rival. (3) Lalali might appreciate a switch from turf to dirt. (1) Fast Venezuela has speed and will be a contender from the rail. Betting strategy: 7 to win, place. Exacta box: 6-7. Exactas: 6-7 over 1-3 and 1-3 over 6-7. Doubles: 1-3-6-7 with 3-8-9-12. Pick 3: 1-3-6-7 with 3-8-9-12 with 3-5-9-10.

5th race – (3) Pop a Choc (B) made a promising move to get the lead in midstretch before tiring. Should benefit from that promising debut and get the job done here. (8) All I Need is a firster from Pletcher who may prove a major threat. (9) Gibberish might appreciate a switch to turf. (12) Talking Book should be a factor in the final furlong. Betting strategy: 3 to win, place. Exacta box: 3-8-9-12. Doubles: 3-8-9-12 with 3-5-9-10.         

6th race – (10) Lookinlikeaqueen (C) dropped from 8-5 to 6-5 and rallied nicely in the final furlong to notch a victory. She should get the nod here. (3) Bareeqa won a claiming stakes last time and looks like the one to fear. (9) Sister Gema is worth a long look in her first start for Tomlinson. (5) Scatnap is in great form and cannot be overlooked. Betting strategy: 10 to win, place. Exacta box: 3-5-9-10.

10th race – (6) Cariba missed by a nose last time and should make amends here. (3) All Quality had a rough trip off a layoff and should be a force here. (12) Take Ten comes off a nice maiden win and merits consideration. (5) No Way Jose can be a factor in the final furlong. Betting strategy: 6 to win, place.  Exacta box: 3-5-6-12. Doubles: 3-5-6-12 with 1-4-5-6.

11th race – (6) Better With Age (B) was forced to rally six wide and finished a fast-closing second. She should work out a winning trip here. (5) First In Command (B) was bump hard at the start and never fired. Deserves a second chance here as she returns to turf. (1) Follow the Flag gets Saez, blinkers, Lasix and the rail and seems destined for an improved effort. (4) Renata was a game second in her debut and will be a main contender. Betting strategy: 6 to win, place.  Exacta box: 1-4-5-6.
