Jill Byrne's Handicapping
Race 1 – Vicki’s Trump (9) has speed and is in the best form of this group .Quite Explosive (7) goes for a new stable and drops to an all time low level. If she returns to her form last year she will be a factor here. Queen Gracie (5) drops in class from open claiming company and fits well here.
Race 2 – Herbal Prospector (4) comes in off the layoff for sharp connections and has been working very well for today. Hennyville Slugger (2) has run two solid efforts and is well placed today. Manly (5) drops sharply and returns to the dirt course where he has run well before.
Race 3 – Friend In Need (4) ran evenly in both tries and should be close to the pace on the stretch out in distance here. Living My Dream (6) also steps down the claiming ladder and can be a factor if she runs as well on the dirt today. Sexy Suzy (7) has run close at this level previously and figures to be in the mix here. Tightly Wound (5) and Fawning (1) fill out the Super Hi 5.
Race 4 – Boss Barney’s Babe (6) faltered against better last out and looks to make amends n the drop in class and return to dirt. Orland Flash (2) made up ground in her debut and can move forward off that effort. Rich Chocolate (7) is a newcomer with a precocious pedigree and a good series of workouts.
Race 5- Nisteltoe (4) comes in with an undefeated record sprinting on the grass and looks set to add to that today. Well Deserved (1) has been facing tough company and has the advantage of a win over the local turf. Kiss In The Forest (5) was an easy winner on the turf in similar conditions and is a strong contender today.
Race 6 – Do Me A Solid (2) showed life in her recent start and will be a factor off that effort. Gripey Sarah (5) also has been showing consistency at this level and can compete with these.
Race 7- Lady Stonewall (5) ran well in her debut and has trained sharply since. Montana Native (9) encountered a wide trip on a wet track last out but a repeat of her first race makes her a factor here. Hells Bay (10) had a rough trip in her debut as the favorite and can make amends today.
Race 8 – Admired (8) chased a sharp winner here last fall and has the speed to be a danger from the outside. Dark Nebula (2) is in good form and also ran one of her best races over this course. Witty Gal (7) stopped abruptly last out and now returns to the main track and for a claiming price.
Race 9 – Lelaps (6) had a rough trip last out but a return to his stateside debut makes him a strong presence today. Grand Arch (8) is bred to handle the added distance today and should be close throughout. Film Making (3) ran his best effort at this trip behind a next out stakes winner and is proven against quality company.
Race 10 – Liberty Bound (5) could not overcome a trip from the rail last out and can be better suited by the draw here. Quite Ready (2) could not last in the same race as the top pick but fits well again here on the class drop. Caddo Lake (9) adds to the pace here and will be competitive with this field. Firetack (7) and Sixoeight (11) complete the Super Hi 5.
