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 – (7) Ima Pharoah makes his first start for Pletcher and looks best in this spot. (2) Onward ships in from New York and should enjoy the sprint distance here. (10) Fugitive is another firster who could be a player in this field. (4) Victory Town tries dirt for the first time and is worth a look. Betting strategy: 7 to win, place. Exacta box: 2-4-7-10.

5th race - (7) Barrantes makes his debut in a claimer for Brown. He’s won with this move before and should be able to notch another victory before. (3) Lets Play Hardball makes his first start for Maker after a claim and should be a main threat. (8) More Than Usual starts his career for Joseph and should not be ignored. (2) Souper Energizer drops into a claimer and should rebound from a weak effort. Betting strategy: 7 to win, place. Exacta box: 2-3-7-8.

7th race – (1) Stormy Nelly turned in a powerful, front-running win and figures to be tough to catch from the rail. (6) Over Gators also has speed and could be the key threat. (3) Ballie’s Dream steps up but seems to fit in well here. Betting strategy: 1 to win, place. Exacta box: 1-3-6.

9th race – (2) Valdolobo (C) dropped from 9-5 to 7-5 and then drew clear in the stretch. Can make it three in a row here. (6) Rule Yourself rallied wide last time and should take a step forward in his first start for Joseph. (5) Bad to the Core has worked nicely since a dismal showing last time and may wake up here. (1) King Leonardo missed by a nose and may rule supreme here. Betting strategy: 2 to win, place.  Exacta box: 1-2-5-6. Doubles: 1-2-5-6 with 2-4-5-8.

10th race – (4) Dalarna (A) exits an impressive win in a claiming stakes and can notch a fourth win in five starts here. (2) American Ninja looks like the one to fear. (5) Armchair Jockey is in great form and belongs in the exotics. (8) High Noon Rider clipped heels last time and merits a second chance here. Betting strategy: 4 to win, place.  Exacta box: 2-4-5-8.

No.
