# 10 LOST APTITUDE 5/2

# 7 BANK OF DAD 8/1

# 8 HAWKEYE DECLAN 4/1

LOST APTITUDE is the strongest bet in this race. Demonstrates the look of a profitable play, averaging a solid 77 speed fig which is one of the best in this group. With Ramgeet in the saddle guiding him, this gelding will most likely be able to break out early here. Should be considered for this event if only for the solid speed rating put up in the last contest. HAWKEYE DECLAN - Capellini is trying to win with this horse by bringing him back so soon. This gelding has a strong win percentage in turf sprint races.

# 5 DON'T ROCK ME 5/1

# 9 CLASSIC BOBBY 4/1

# 7 MEDIEVAL SWORD 3/1

I back DON'T ROCK ME here. Ought to be given a chance here on the basis of the figures in the speed department alone. Could best this group based on the speed fig - 62 - of his last contest. Has very good Equibase Class Figures relative to this group - worth a look. CLASSIC BOBBY - With Ramgeet on top him, this gelding will almost certainly be able to break out quickly in this race. Ran a solid last race. MEDIEVAL SWORD - Gomez is serious with this one, wheeling him right back. Is a sharp contender based on figures garnered recently under today's conditions.

# 10 SOCIAL AFFAIR 5/2

# 6 I'VE HAD MY SAY 15/1

# 8 APLOMB 7/2

SOCIAL AFFAIR is my choice. Must be given a chance given the class of races run recently. Has run strongly when moving a turf route race. With a formidable jock who has won at a competitive 21 percent rate over the last 30 days. This has to be one of the top choices. I'VE HAD MY SAY - Appears to be the type to be helped now going off Lasix here. Must be carefully examined as he drops to compete against this softer field. APLOMB - Investors ought to note that this equine runs with second time Lasix today. Recently Reed has provided players with a very good winning percentage with horses running in turf route races.

# 4 RENA STARLIGHT 9/5

# 6 NO JOKE BABY 7/2

# 5 SEPTEMBER CEREMONY 4/1

RENA STARLIGHT could be the bet in here. Her 65 average has this mare with among the most favorable Equibase Speed Figures for this event. I think having Quinones ride this mare is a smart choice. Ran a solid last race. NO JOKE BABY - Will almost certainly come out sharp - I have liked the way this filly has moved swiftly to the front end recently. Earned a reliable Equibase Speed Fig in the last race. Can run another good one in this race. SEPTEMBER CEREMONY - Looks very strong versus this field and will almost certainly be one of the front-runners. The speed rating of 62 from her most recent race looks strong in here.

# 4 WACKY INDIAN 5/1

# 6 SANTELLI 2/1

WACKY INDIAN looks to be a decent contender. Love when any horse makes a quick turn around. Has performed soundly recently in sprint races, posting a nifty 56 avg Equibase Speed Figure. Ran a very solid last race. SANTELLI - He looks very good in this spot and I expect will be on the lead or close at the midpoint. Garnered a formidable Equibase speed fig in the most recent race. Can run another good one in this affair. YODELING HONEY - Has longshot potential and could prove victorious at a juicy mutuel. Is a solid contender based on numbers earned recently under today's conditions.

# 3 NOONTIME BADGE 2/1

# 1 STEDFAST CAT 3/1

# 5 GRAVE 6/1

NOONTIME BADGE has a very strong shot to take this race. Could provide positive profits based on very good recent Equibase Speed Figures with an average of 60. This gelding has been consistently running well in his latest outings. Had one of the most favorable speed figures of this group in his last affair. STEDFAST CAT - Has to be given consideration against this field displaying formidable numbers lately and an average Equibase speed fig of 58 under similar conditions. Radosevich has him trained quite well to break swiftly out of the starting gate. GRAVE - With a reliable 55 average speed figure at the distance, seems well suited for today's race.

# 8 ALL ABOUT ME 10/1

# 3 END OF THE SEARCH 9/2

# 7 SHESA SPICEY CAT 12/1

ALL ABOUT ME looks to be a strong contender and could score at a price in here. This equine is ranked high in this group of animals in earnings per start at the distance/surface. Has to be given consideration against this field displaying very strong figs as of late and an average speed figure of 60 under similar conditions. Vaunts formidable speed figs on average overall when measured up against the rest of this field. END OF THE SEARCH - Has to be used in the exotic wagers. With a very good 61 Equibase speed fig last time out, will surely be a factor in this contest. SHESA SPICEY CAT - Has been running in the most competitive company of the group lately. Looks decent to be up near the lead at the first call.
