8 Got a Hunch(L) 115 Ortiz 2-3-5 Cannizzo 5-2

Got a Hunch is riding a forward line on the numbers; weakness of field is selection's strength. Retired drops, returns to dirt and makes peak start of form cycle. I Wished displayed improved speed in last start; worth a look.

7 Lady Banks(L) 120 Castro 2-x-x Lawrence, II 9-5

Lady Banks made wide, sustained rally when a clear-cut second in debut; more to come. Merry Meadow is speedy but has finished second in last two starts; continues trend? Funny Lady gets the meds and is firing bullets for first start since October; very dangerous.

7 Stormy Success(L) 114 Coa 10-7-4 Toscano, Jr 30-1

Ea owns speed and has shown the necessary stamina to navigate 12-furlong trip. Colossal Gift won last on turf and owns victory on inner surface. Rocky World is a deep closer that would be aided by hot fractions.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $16,000. Purse: $25,000.

1 Wildichi(L) 114 Rodriguez 5-7-8 Odintz 30-1

8 Why Not Her(L) 122 Smith 6-4-2 Stoklosa 7-2

9 Phantasticus(L) 121 Morales 4-4-3 Ness 5-2

Why Not Her logged solid efforts on inner track last winter and is training with a purpose for return. Bluegrassislegal has finished second in last two starts; be no surprise. Wildichi (improved pace figure in last) and Chubbalita's Joy (riding a forward line on the numbers) will both offer juicy odds.

4 Union Boss(L) 115 Garcia 5-2-1 Antonucci 7-2

5 Belle Gallantey(L) 120 Morales 3-1-5 Grusmark 4-1

Union Boss owns sprinter's speed and could play out as the dominant front-runner with aggressive ride. Royal Lahaina was a hard-charging second in last; very dangerous. Belle Gallantey notched fast figures in last two starts; right in the thick of this.

10 Pegasus Diamond(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 2-10-5 Englehart 2-1

Pennymine is firing bullets for first start since showing improved speed in most recent start. Fujiana tallied swift numbers when second to a repeat winner in last; could easily take this. Buck Stops Here owns four second from five starts; finally graduates?

7 Iron Lou(L) 121 Arroyo 3-1-8 Englehart 9-2

8 Pro's Pal(L) 121 Gomez 3-2-2 Divitto 10-1

Litigate compiled steadily intensifying work slate for first start since July 4; rates close call based on price potential. Dan's Gold, another that's training sharply for return from long layoff, tallied both lifetime wins on inner strip; very playable. Stonecoldsteamer owns speed and fast numbers; right in the thick of this.

1a Pegasus Papou(L) 114 Coa 7-3-4 Persaud 50-1

See Me Proud drops, returns to dirt and could be sitting on breakthrough at fat ticket. Political Justice is a very tough customer when allowed a soft lead. Term Loan gets class relief and returns to surface of lone victory; very dangerous. Festive Spirit packs a potent late kick on best efforts.
