Jill Byrne's Handicapping

  • Race 1 6-2-1

    With Excellence (6) has been facing the boys recently and now returns to her own gender in a spot she fits very well. Shelly’s Hope (2) prevailed off a 28 month layoff and wheels right back in a protected race. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 6-2-1

  • Race 2 1a/1-2-3

    Homeboykris (1a) put in a strong effort here in the spring before faltering in two subsequent tries. If he can return to that performance he looks competitive here and is joined in the wagering by Tangled Sheets (1). Ya Gotta Have Soul (2) has been consistent since returning from a layoff and is proven at the distance. Taproot(3) failed off the claim last out but may not have handled the sloppy going. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 1a/1-2-3

  • Race 3 5-6-4

    Call Pat (5) has run well in all tries except for her turf effort and gets the edge in this well matched field. Immortal Fame (6) is very similar to the top pick in form but has a slight speed edge. She’ll Get Even (4) will be running late and fits well with this group. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 5-6-4

  • Race 4 1-3-2

    Monastic (1) is a winner over the Matt Winn turf and comes in to this race in improving form. Film Making (3) always puts in a strong finish and has raced well on this turf. Callingahardten (2) is inconsistent but when on his game he fits with these. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 1-3-2

  • Race 5 4-1-2

    Lady Spencer (4) drops in class and returns to the main track for a top team. She has the speed to be a factor from the start. Majestique (1) has a couple of good performances at these conditions. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 4-1-2

  • Race 6 3-8-4

    Cassatt (3) debuts with a long series of eye catching workouts for top connections. She has a strong pedigree that should handle the distance in her first try. Harlan’s Special (8) was not disgraced as a maiden in the very tough G-2 Pocahontas and is a top challenger today. Annulment (4) raced evenly in her debut on the turf and has a pedigree to improve with time and the surface switch. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 3-8-4

  • Race 7 2-5-4

    Gospel Lesson (2) was a winner at these conditions in the spring and should get a good stalking trip in a competitive race with plenty of front runners. Banjammer (5) has traded wins with the top pick and tends to do his best running close to the pace. Hazards of Love (4) is on a win roll for a top team and adds to the depth of this well matched group. JILL’S SELECTIONS -2-5-4

  • Race 8 4-5-8-3

    Broadway Zen (4) has worked well and has a precocious pedigree in this strong looking group of juvenile runners. Wizardly (5) starts for the powerful two year old connections with a good series of morning works. Standpoint (8) adds to the depth of new faces in this race with solid workouts and a good post. Kowboy Boots (3) has experience and can improve today. JILL’S SELECTIONS -4-5-8-3

  • Race 9 6-2-1

    Googleado (6) has been chasing top company since his arrival in the states and now draws a better post and a slightly easier group for his return to Churchill. Recalling Memories (2) has been solid in all his starts and will be running on late with these. JILL’S SELECTIONS- 6-2-1

  • Race 10 3-4-10-2-9

    Heroic Act (3) was bet in his debut and showed little on the polytrack. He has worked well over the Churchill surface and now drops slightly in class with the experience edge. Ship To Shore (4) makes his first start for a top stable with some steady workouts. The Duck (10) is another of the debut runners worth watching on the tote board. Whyprolongtheagony (2) and Rooster Crusher (9) look competitive in the Super HI 5. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 3-4-10-2-9
