8 Taxadame(L) 3-6-6 Migliore Barbara 122 10-1

Illegal Search exits determined maiden score in last and has foundation on the final figures. Taxadame drops after earning improved pace number in last; price will be tempting. Why Because is another that gets class relief and should be aided by turn back to sprint.2

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Maiden Claiming $35,000-$25,000. 3&up. Purse: $21,000.

1 Ali's Joy(L) 4-4-x Hill Duggan 116 4-1

7 Forty Prayers(L) 3-4-2 Cohen Jacobson 116 9-5

Ali's Joy is fresh and makes first start with maiden claiming tag; weakness of field is selection's strength. Itch returns to maiden ranks and owns field's best numbers on 'A' game. Sequoya Mountain earned good number when third in last and now makes peak start of form cycle.

9 Bounder(L) 7-4-10 Musarro Hertler 113 10-1

Sourceofthenile gets price cut in half after even fourth in first start since five-month layoff; forward move predicted. McGee's Miracle gets rider upgrade and makes first start with maiden claiming tag; dangerous. Mind Boggling is 0-for-22 but owns competitive numbers.

9 Cajun Belle(L) 5-8-5 Musarro Signore 112 15-1

Lilly Of Paradise logged hard charging score in the slop last time and should have more to give in second start since September. She's Prime failed to beat a horse in most recent but owns fast numbers on best efforts. Cajun Belle didn't fire on wet track in last but owns fast figures on dry land; don't ignore.

Dreams Of Tomorrow ran into a buzz saw when third in debut and could play out as the main speed at today's longer trip.

Kill The Joker lost all chance in most recent but was good second in debut; dangerous. Bold Direction made mild move when third in first start; right in the thick of this.
