Best Bet: AVE. OF THE PINES (5); Best Value: APPLE (9)1

1 Mile. Claiming $7,500. 4&up. Purse: $14,000. (All races on inner track). Post - 12:30.1 Psychotic Summer(L) 6-7-6 Lezcano Toscano 113 12-1

3 Four Star Bo(L) 2-4-9 Lopez Henriques 118 9-2

4 Charing Cross(L) 7-6-1 Serpa Gyarmati 113 10-1

5 Vinnies Wild Tale(L) 1-7-1 Davis Barrera 115 9-5

6 Ecru Egret(L) 5-4-5 Musarro Persaud 113 6-1

7 New Spirit(L) 4-7-1 Luzzi Benzel 118 5-1

8 Davy's Bank(L) 5-4-2 Bocachica Grusmark 118 8-1

New Spirit made middle move and flattened in sprint last and could be primed for breakthrough in third stateside start. Davy's Bank displayed improved speed in last and owns fast back figures; dangerous. Vinnies Wild Tale was fast-figured winner last out; is bounce looming at short ticket?

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $50,000. 3yo. NY Bred. Purse: $26,000

1 Dixie Nite Out(L) 4-2-x Chavez Contessa 120 8-5

2 Sourceofthenile(L) 8-x-x Hill Hushion 120 6-1

3 Money's Sweet(L) 2-x-x Napravnik Rice 115 3-1

4 It's the Big Cat(L) 7-9-2 Cohen Gyarmati 120 5-1

5 Spicy Steve(L) 6-x-x Fragoso Donk 120 6-1

6 Chieftains Warrior(L1) x-x-x Studart DiSanto 120 15-1

7 Centripital(L1) 4-x-x Davis Corrao 115 20-1

8 Prince Dylan(L) 5-11-x Serpa Hertler 115 20-1

It's the Big Cat is speedy and meets slow group; weakness of field is selection's strength. Dixie Night Out will be the beneficiary if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Money's Sweet is another that will be aided by pace meltdown.

6 Furlongs. Allowance Fillies. 3yo. NY Bred. Purse: $40,000

2 Azucaa Anne(L) 1-2-3 Rodriguez LeCesse 118 15-1

7 Northern Warrior(L) 4-1-7 Lezcano Ubillo 113 30-1

1a Screen Saviour(L) 4-7-4 Hill Bush 118 4-1

Valuable Lady looms the main speed and logged four tightly grouped works last month for first start since October; primed and ready. Shine Upon, another that's training with a purpose for first start since this past fall, was fast-figured winner in debut; big-time player. Azucca Anne exits dominant victory in last and could have more to give; don't dismiss.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $35,000. Fillies. 3yo. Purse: $20,000.

2 Kittylicious(L) 4-4-5 Serpa Sciacca 115 12-1

7 Siwanoy Lila(L) 6-9-x Jara Zito 120 12-1

1a Lady Whimsical(L1) x-x-x Napravnik Martin 120 9-2

8 Ninety Five(L1) x-x-x DeSouza Saccardo 120 15-1

Kittylicious lands in field where pace dynamics could suit late-running style to a tee. Destiny Road drops and returns to sprint; very playable. Razzlemedazzleme will prove tough on a soft lead.

1 Mile. Maiden Claiming $15,000. 3yo. NY Bred. Purse: $16,000.

1 Fast Spender(L) 7-x-x Lopez Martin 120 15-1

2 Venice Beach(L) 7-4-5 Luzzi Levine 120 8-5

3 End of the Gulch(L) 6-7-x Bocachica Gyarmati 120 20-1

6 Nicoletti(L) 5-5-x Cohen Aquilino 120 8-1

7 Give It Back(L) 7-10-8 Musarro Tannuzzo 113 15-1

8 Mount Karakorum(L) 6-4-5 Studart Odintz 120 12-1

9 Mom Proof(L) 2-2-8 Serpa Persaud 115 7-2

Ave. of the Pines has trained strongly since earning improved pace figure in last; breakthrough predicted. Mom Proof closed with interest in most recent and looms a stretch threat once again. Venice Beach drops to career low and makes first start for Bruce Levine; very dangerous.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $12,500. 4&up. Purse: $14,000.

1 Raging Meese(L) 2-5-7 Bisono Barker 122 4-1

2 Illegal Search(L) 2-4-6 Cohen Contessa 117 5-1

3 Winitback(L) 2-7-8 Bocachica Grusmark 122 8-1

4 Montana Music(L) 10-6-8 Serpa Ritvo 117 20-1

5 Eddie's Point(L) 3-3-3 Davis Lotruglio 117 6-1

6 Dontquityourdayjob(L) 2-6-3 Saez Martin, Sr. 122 4-1

7 Little Alex(L) 4-2-5 Dominguez DiPrima 122 5-2

8 Bad Boy Luke(L) 5-7-3 Simpson Henry 115 20-1

9 Numerous One(L) 8-6-6 Corujo Quiles 115 50-1

Dontquityourdayjob was pace and trip compromised when a fast-figured second in last and could give one more before the bounce. Little Alex is riding a forward line on the numbers and now makes third start of form cycle; very playable. Winitback is 0-for-17 but looms a wire-to-wire threat on best; must respect.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Claiming $20,000. 4&up. Purse: $23,000.

2 Fuhrever Dancing(L) 2-2-4 Chavez Gullo 123 5-2

1a Malibu Moonshine(L) 5-12-5 Bocachica Jacobson 123 6-1

7 Regents Ridge(L) 8-2-3 Cohen Autrey 123 10-1

8 Rovic's Wealth(L) 7-1-1 Hill Duggan 123 12-1

9 Air Lord(L) 2-1-1 Dominguez Maker 123 6-1

Air Lord makes first start for barn that excels with new claims after unleashing wide run to get second in last; handles today's added ground. Fuhrever Dancing tallied very fast internal and final figures when a game second last out; regresses today at short odds? All in No Outs gets confident class boost after strong third in last and owns fast back numbers; big-time threat.

8

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Allowance. Fillies and Mares. 4&up. NY Bred. Purse: $41,000.

1 Hookin the Goods 7-7-10 Lopez Pringle 108 30-1

2 Wise Choice(L) 7-3-3 Musarro Sciacca 113 15-1

3 Bearursa(L) 3-9-1 Dominguez Asmussen 118 3-1

4 Kaffiend(L) 3-1-2 Espinoza Morrison 118 5-1

5 Imaladystella(L) 5-7-2 Rodriguez Gutierrez 118 20-1

6 Honeymoon Suite(L) 2-3-4 Serpa Contessa 113 7-2

7 Jabbar(L) 6-6-6 Cohen McGillycuddy 118 6-1

8 Imthequeenofqueens(L) 2-4-5 Lopez Parisella 118 2-1

Honeymoon Suite makes peak start of form cycle after earning fast late pace figure in last; more to come. Imthequeenofqueens was hard fought second in last but seems to prefer runner-up awards. Bearursa was late running third in inner-track debut and should appreciate today's longer trip.

9

1 Mile. Claiming $15,000. Fillies and Mares. 4&up. NY Bred. Purse: $19,000.

1 Apple(L) 6-7-1 Chavez Contessa 118 9-2

2 Worth a Shot(L) 1-5-6 Davis Corrao 115 20-1

3 Gin Tango(L) 2-4-5 Napravnik Brown 118 6-1

4 Runnin On Guilt(L) 4-1-3 Luzzi Benzel 118 10-1

5 Hello Gold(L) 1-3-8 Bocachica D'Amelio 120 20-1

6 Crafty Shocked(L) 5-6-1 Dominguez Dutrow 118 3-1

7 Mustang Fever(L) 9-2-3 Cohen Parisella 118 5-2

8 Queen of Protocol(L) 6-2-8 Lopez Donk 118 5-1

9 Western Slang(L) 9-9-10 Serpa Ritvo 113 30-1

Apple made menacing middle move and flattened last time and should be tighter in second start since July. Crafty Shocked returns to selling ranks after even fifth versus arguably tougher in last; big-time contender. Queen of Protocol gets class relief after sub-par effort in last; dangerous on best. Worth a Shot and Hello Gold are last-race winners that will offer juicy odds; both are worth a look.
