Hot List Key:     

A : A preferred horse to watch                   B: Secondary horse to watch
*C: Went down 2 or more betting notches in the final 3 minutes and finished 1st through 3rd
*D: Went down 2 or more betting notches and finished 4th or worse
* - 4 or more betting notches if 11-1 or more.

1st race – (8) Bellatrix’s Wand takes a big class drop and finds a weak group that she should be able to handle while she switches to turf. (7) Dancingwithjimmieb has enough late speed to hit the board. (4) Impression Given could be tough to catch here. (3) Rosasparks may appreciate a turnback to a sprint.  Betting strategy: 8 to win, place. Exacta box: 3-4-7-8. Doubles: 3-4-7-8 with 2-4-5-11.

2nd race – (2) Awesome Evil returns to a sprint and should turn in an improved effort. (11) Fury Song should also thrive in a sprint. (4) Too Stylish was overmatched last time but fits better here. (5) Harts N Flowers was hurt by a wide trip and should work out a better trip here. Betting strategy: 2 to win, place. Exacta box: 2-4-5-11.

7th race - (8) Shanghai Moon (B) was tested on turf last time and was a creditable third. Returns to his preferred surface and should be formidable here. (5) Neverstopdreaming should be the one to fear at this level. (4) St Joe Viper was gelded since his last start and adds Paco. Could turn in an improved performance. (2) Quality On Tap should be a factor off the Barboza claim. Betting strategy: 8 to win, place. Exacta box: 2-4-5-8. Doubles: 2-4-5-8 with 1-2-7-9.

8th race – (9) Bean Counter (A) was given a freshening after a solid effort on the front end. May not get caught today. (1) Champagne Horizon was a wide second last time and will be dangerous from the rail. (2) Mike’s Girl was a close fourth as the favorite and merits consideration here. (7) Jen Take Charge posted a maiden win off a layoff and should be a main factor against winners. Betting strategy: 9 to win, place. Exacta box: 1-2-7-9.

10th race – (1) Mystery Bank was claimed by Joseph and moves up while adding Lasix. Should be suited by the mile distance. (10) Budget Buster was third and second in his last two starts and belongs in the exotics. (3) Kuduro returns for his first start since June and should be a key contender in a claimer. (4) Fork Union is also worth a look while taking on claimers. Betting strategy: 1 to win, place.  Exacta box: 1-3-4-10.

No.
