Jill Byrne's Handicapping

  • Race 1 6-8-7

    Got To Work (6) drops in class and can improve off a sluggish start first out and with the switch to dirt. Something Blue (8) raced evenly on the turf and can move forward off her debut. Housewife (7) picks up top rider Bridgmohan and steps down the claiming ladder. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 6-8-7

  • Race 2 5-2-6

    Cotton Alley (5) ran decently here against stronger company and fits well on the drop down today. Top Knot (2) showed good speed in California and goes for a new stable today. Mrs. Darcy (6) picks up Lanerie and may prefer the switch to dirt here. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 5-2-6

  • Race 3 6-9-11

    Added Delight (6) has a win locally and gets the edge on her better efforts in this wide open event. Just For Instance (9) turns back in distance and should be well placed in this spot. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 6-9-11

  • Race 4 8-2-6

    School Mascot (8) drops in class, and ran well on the main track versus better at the Fairgrounds. With some pace in here she should be closing late. Bow To No One (2) has defeated some of these and has the consistency edge. Midnight Flute (6) has been competitive at this level and can get a piece of it again if on her best. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 8-2-6

  • Race 5 3-12-1

    Beer Garden (3) has been in poor form versus stronger fields and looks to bounce back against softer company here. Callingahardten (1) like many of these is inconsistent but on his best will be a factor. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 3-12-1

  • Race 6 5-1-10

    Ship To Shore (5) stretches out off the claim and has trained well for this. Bad Student (1) has raced evenly in his last two starts and gets a ground saving trip here. Kenrado (10) has a couple decent efforts at this level. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 5-1-10

  • Race 7 9-3-4

    Air Squadron (9) actually crossed the wire first but was taken down. A repeat of that effort makes him tough with these. Royal Warrior (3) chased the top pick and will like the added ground here. Dyker Beach (4) always seems to land a share of the top spots and looks competitive again today. JILL’S SELECTIONS -9-3-4

  • Race 8 2-10-4

    Wings Of Fortune (2) is consistent and just missed at these conditions making him a strong runner here. I’ll Call (10) goes for top connections and should have no problem with the distance today. Prado Cat (4) has been off form of late but may improve with the marathon trip today. JILL’S SELECTIONS -2-10-4

  • Race 9 1-4-3

    Remember Then (1) turns back in distance and returns to the main track. The rail post is not ideal, but she looks strong in here. Lady Diva Ga Ga (4) does her best running on the dirt and is proven in solid stakes company. Amie’s Dini (3) is another with good form against better fields and looks to get a good stalking trip today. JILL’S SELECTIONS- 1-4-3

  • Race 10 11-12-3-9-5

    Capital Goods (11) is one for one over this track and now drops in class off the claim for a top stable. Defer Heaven (12) is well placed in this conditioned claimer and has dangerous outside pace. Chief Gaga (3) steps up in good form and will be closing late. Kenny’s Lake (9) and Hanuman (5) round out the top five. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 11-12-3-9-5
