Jill Byrne's Handicapping

  • Race 1 3-1/1a-4

    Illegally Blonde (3) just missed at this level last out and looks good with these. C P Hath A Way (1) and Teller Terri (1a) make a strong entry and either one looks like a top threat. Excessiveness (4) was an easy winner off the claim for top connections and a repeat of that makes her tough today. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 3-1/1a-4

  • Race 2 2-3-5

    Proud Image (2) drops in class off a decent effort in his first try against winners and gets the edge here. Ruthless Empire (3) just missed versus tougher and may look to take this field gate to wire. Gator Camp (5) was overmatched in his last and can get a share of this. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 2-3-5

  • Race 3 7-3-4

    Teardrop (7) debuts for a top juvenile barn and looks ready to go today. Scooter’s Choice (3) is working well for her debut and has a precocious pedigree. Redgrass Cat (4) showed speed in her first try and may improve with that experience. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 7-3-4

  • Race 4 5-3-8

    School Mascot (5) drops in class today off a couple of decent turf tries and can be a factor in this very well matched group. Nora’s Song (3) ran well in her debut and can move forward today off that race. Rate Change (8) ran well last out and is another taking a step down the claiming ladder. Her race here last fall was good enough to fit with this group. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 5-3-8

  • Race 5 2-1-3

    Bemata (2) was overmatched last out and will appreciate the class drop and the shorter distance. Arbiter (1) was a determined winner last out in a very quick final time. A repeat of that makes him a strong factor today. Grey Oak (3) fits well here with a return to his form in his maiden win. JILL’S SELECTIONS –2-1-3

  • Race 6 7-2-4

    Ladies Luv Outlaws (7) put in a poor effort last out on polytrack but has worked well since then and gets a slight edge here. Appeal Image (2) has run well locally and exits a strong recent effort. Senor Hambone (4) adds blinkers today and drops in class for a good stable. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 7-2-4

  • Race 7 8-9-5

    Crazy Lucky (8) exploded in her first turf try with a nice win and a repeat of that puts her right in the mix here. North By Northlite (9) has a good race on the local turf and should like the turn back in distance here. R Next Escapade (5) tries turf off of a good recent try and has the speed to be close early. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 8-9-5

  • Race 8 7-6-10

    Ghost Is Clear (7) has been facing better company and has excellent form on the main track. Tiban (6) is consistent and does some of his best running at Churchill. Bug Juice (10) is on a win roll for a sharp stable and fits well from just off the pace here. JILL’S SELECTIONS- 7-6-10

  • Race 9 10-1-8-5

    English Pound (10) put in two good turf efforts this year and is the one to beat today. Prince Of Spain (1) was too far back off a slow pace last out and had a wide trip. He should get a better pace setup today. Raven’s Honor (8) and Siegfried Line (5) look solid in the top five. JILL’S SELECTIONS- 10-1-8-5-7
