Jill Byrne's Handicapping
Tequila Gentle (6) drew the rail in his last two tries and was forced early in the races. He gets a more favorable post today and a drop in class. Edward’s Moon (7) improved last out and looks formidable here. Song Ahead (1) makes his first start off a layoff and is training well.
Backside Blackie (4) is in good form and excels over the local surface. My Irish Girl (5) has the back class and returns from a long break for top connections. Parade of Homes (3) steps up off consecutive wins for a team with the hot hand.
Original Kitten (1) had a rough trip when third against similar last out and figures prominently with better racing luck. American Kitty (7) finished just behind the top pick last out and look strong again today. Very Special Lady (6) is capable of a top finish off her best efforts.
Jill Golden (2) drops in class and tries the dirt for the first time off the layoff and looks set to go here. Candy Store Kid (7) has been close at this level and has the fitness edge over the top pick. Delta Lady (1) ran her best race at this level on the dirt course and will be running late.
Wildcat Nation (6) drops sharply in class for today and will be tough to go against off his prior form. Dynamite Lonnie D (7) is quick and may last longer with the drop in price and distance. Adaro (2) faltered versus slightly stronger company recently but was sharp at this level prior to that.
Double Tapped (2) debuts for a top stable and has a good pedigree and nice works for her first out. Dixie Devon (4) ran evenly in her debut and can move forward with the experience of that race. Five Star Dixie (6) is working steadily for her first start and has a precocious pedigree.
Loaded Lady (6) exits a nice win on the turf and looks capable of the step up here today. Fleur De Lilly (7) ran well against a strong field last out and should be well placed throughout. Dogtooth Violet (4) is consistent and need only transfer that form to the turf today to be effective.
Uptown Bertie (4) faced a very strong winner last out and can move forward in her second try versus winners. Tapit Dancer (7) ran well in her first start off the layoff and should improve as well today. Malibu Holiday (5) also exits a strong field last out and should appreciate the added distance here.
Storm In Your Eyes (5) adds blinkers today and drops in class of the claim for a leading barn. Cielo Classic (6) has been away for an extended period of time but would have to a factor off his prior form if anywhere close to ready today. Gruenewald (4) is solid at this level and rarely misses an on board finish here. Blingboy (3) and Seguro (1) round out the top five.
