Jill Byrne's Handicapping
Walkin in a Shadow (2) has been training sharply for a barn very proficient with juvenile runners. Path of Pride (5) debuts with moderate works, but the stable usually has their first time youngsters ready to go. Angel Socks (1) has the experience edge and would be a danger if she can repeat her first outing.
Handsome Jack (5) drops in class after showing good speed in his debut and looks hard to go against at short odds. Ccs Captain Crispy (7) debuts for a trainer and jockey combination that has had success locally with two-year-olds. Ready Set Whoa (4) had a wide trip versus better and can be a factor with the experience of that race and the class drop here.
The Ward entry of Krazy for Kaya and Fierce (1/1A) have trained swiftly for their debuts and get the slight edge today. Omnitap (6) has worked steadily for her first start and has a precocious pedigree. Dixie Devon (7) has a win early type pedigree and has worked evenly for this.
Zulu Warrior (5) has the speed to be close throughout and may carry that speed further with the rail out on the turf course. Hurricane Elvis (1) has some decent turf form at this level and goes for a new stable today. Primo (6) tries the grass for the first time and has the most upside to improve off only two tries.
Fleetwing (7) takes a drop down the claiming ladder and should find the seven furlong distance suitable for his running style. Evanscourt (1) was able to win in his debut with Borel up and can repeat that effort today off the layoff. Gold’n Holiday (9) was overmatched last out and can make amends today.
Maybelle Slew (3) returns to the Midwest Thoroughbred Stable off the claim and is ultra consistent at this level. Cactus House (1) and Won Great Damsel (1A) are also well placed and have the current form that makes either a danger here. This Time (10) comes in off a sharp win and has the speed to be prominent from the start.
Homerun Berti (3) exits a sharp win in his turf debut and has the good speed to be close with the rail out on the turf course. Shore Do (2) drops in class for this and has a win over the Matt Winn Turf Course. Evacuation Route (4) has good turf form and will be rolling down the lane when the speed may be backing up.
Neck ‘n Neck (5) exits graded stakes company where he ran evenly. He has found a much better spot to get back on track today. Quiet Man (2) has back to back wins against lesser fields but has to be a factor while in good form. Big Town (3) is a danger from just off the pace on his best performance.
Hometown Legend (1) has been knocking on the door at this level and looks to get a good trip from just off the pace here. Big Whiskey No Ice (10) turns back in distance and will be finishing well if the pace is quick. Sunday Missile (2) has good speed and can last for a share of this. Power Key (7) and Laope (9) look best of the race to cap off the Super Hi-5.
