4th race – (4) Time to Two Step (C) dropped all the way from 3-5 to 1-5 to post a maiden win. Should be able to handle winners at this level. (3) Stormy Boss missed by a neck last time and could be the one to fear. (6) Paynter Fest drops off a claim and a weak effort but might wake up here. (1) Samoa could be tough to catch from the rail. Betting strategy: 4 to win, place. Exacta box: 1-3-4-6.

6th race - (2) Untitled was second in a Grade 3 stakes and should relish some class relief here. (1) No Getting Over Me also exits stakes company and cannot be ignored.

Exactas: 1-2 over 3-4 and 3-4 over 1-2. Doubles: 1-2-3-4 with 5-9-11-12.

9th race – (1) Temple rallied to just miss last time and should prevail here with a rail trip and a little more distance. (7) Ry’s the Guy has speed and might be tough to catch. (9) Krampus rallied wide last time and might get a better trip here. (10) Rijeka seeks back-to-back wins and deserves a look. Betting strategy: 1 to win, place.  Exacta box: 1-7-9-10.
