Jill Byrne's Handicapping
Tapanna (2) has been off form versus better but can improve today with the switch back to turf and drop in class. Timely Pursuit (3) is consistent and ran some of his better races on turf. Smokin Star (1) exits a strong race and has some prior good grass form.
Krazy For Kaya (5) just missed in her debut and looks solid here. Ocean Park (2) made up ground when wide in her debut and can improve here. Lucky Mary G. (7) has been training well and has a strong win early pedigree.
Por Que (6) was forced to move early from the rail draw last out and can get a better trip today. Biker Boy (5) defeated the top pick and will be close from the start. Victory Notion (2) chased the top two and will be rolling late.
Isthmus (4) defeated a stronger field yet drops today and still must be considered for these connections. Andersonstate (2) has speed from the rail and is also stepping down the claiming ladder. Our Dark Knight (1) has been facing tough company and has a good local record.
Ibn Shaniko (2) could not hold on late at big odds last out but gets a shorter distance and gets the slight edge. Fela Kuti (4) returns from a long break and is well placed here. Five Afleet (5) gets some pace for his closing kick today.
American Indian (1) and Cowdray Park (1A) make a strong entry with sharp works and nice pedigrees for a top juvenile barn. Positively (4) can improve with the added distance off a solid debut effort. Hornet (5) and Tattaglia (7) look equally tough to go against from the Asmussen barn in a tough looking group of colts.
Mycitytip (8) faltered from the rail last out but can rebound with a better post and class drop. Troika (2) just missed last out and is a big threat to the top pick. Shesa Louie (4) ran well when sprinting and will be a part of the pace here.
Jungle Juice (3) just beat many of these same foes and now steps up for the hot stable. Virginia Ann (2), second to the top pick, also goes for a new barn that does well in these scenarios and looks tough again here. Storming Wildcat (6) has the turf form that the top two lack and looked sharp in her last start.
Shortbread (6) was second at this level in a quickly run race and should get a perfect trip today. Firetack (7) had a terrible trip last out and is a factor today from the outside. School’s Out (1) impressed in his maiden win but will be pressured from the rail post today.
Kitty Wine (7) has raced well in all turf tries and has the speed to be a danger here. Putthebabiesdown (5) makes her third start off the layoff and has the back class on turf to be a strong threat today. Wine Princess (3) has a top pedigree and returns on the turf where she ran very well in her debut.
Captain My Captain (7) is in great form against better and drops today for a hot barn. Honor In Peace (5) steps up for new connections off a big win. Enon (8) shortens up and makes his third start of the form cycle today. Win Tucker (6) and Gratitat (2) round out the top five.
