# 4 LOVE WHO 10/1

# 3 TOTEE 4/1

# 5 BOY G. 8/1

I back LOVE WHO for this race especially at 10/1. Should be considered a key contender on earnings per start at the distance/surface alone. Should go off at a nice price and has some positive angles going for him. Ought to be given consideration based on the very strong speed figure recorded in the last contest. TOTEE - Is worth a close look and may be a wager - strong Speed Figures (67 average) at today's distance and surface lately. Looks competitive versus this group and will most likely be one of the leaders. BOY G. - Could provide positive gains based on strong recent Equibase Speed Figures with an average of 76. Has a sharp shot for this race if you like back class.

# 1 ROMEO ROYALE 2/1

# 7 ROMANTIC CHANNEL 12/1

# 2 PURINCAT 6/1

I've got to go with ROMEO ROYALE. Bracho ought to be able to get this gelding to break out quickly in this competition. Could provide positive profits based on formidable recent Equibase Speed Figures with an average of 83. This horse has a wonderful winning percentage in turf sprints. ROMANTIC CHANNEL - Have to assume this one will make a good impression following the quick return to the races. Looks very strong against this group and will almost certainly be one of the early speedsters. PURINCAT - He has been running soundly and the speed figures are among the best in this group of horses. With a very good 86 speed figure last time out, will definitely be a factor in this contest.

# 5 GHOSTLY WONDER 3/1

# 6 PARED 5/2

# 2 CHALICE 9/2

GHOSTLY WONDER looks to be a competitive contender. Sound average Equibase Speed Figures in turf sprint races make this pony a solid choice. With one of the most favorable jockeys in terms of gains at the window, don't count this gelding out. Will most likely compete solidly in the early speed battle which bodes well with this group of horses in this race. PARED - When Cox uses Bracho there's a good chance for profits. With a very good 73 speed figure last time out, will clearly be a factor in this outing. CHALICE - Has to be considered a key contender on earnings per start at the distance/surface alone. Is tough not to consider given the company run in lately.

# 2 COUNT ON DIAMONDS 3/1

# 5 SHE CRACKS ME UP 5/2

# 3 MY LIL ANTO 5/1

COUNT ON DIAMONDS looks to be a decent contender. Recently Jurado has been scorching which may give the edge to this filly. Has to be given consideration - I like the figs from the last outing. I think having Jurado ride this filly is a smart selection. SHE CRACKS ME UP - Angelle has a strong win percentage with horses travelling in dirt sprint races. Quinones will probably be able to get this filly to break out early in this competition.

# 8 MYAKKA PRINCE 6/1

# 7 MY FRIEND DAVID 6/1

I've got to go with CORPS OF DISCOVERY. Overall, has one of the best earnings per start in dirt sprint races in this group. Has to be carefully examined versus this field displaying strong figures as of late and an average speed figure of 84 under similar conditions. With one of the strongest jocks in terms of profits at the window, don't count this gelding out. MYAKKA PRINCE - Make a note that this one runs on Lasix today. Should best this group here, showing solid numbers of late. MY FRIEND DAVID - His chances to score are much better this time around facing this softer field of horses.
