No. 4 Grandstand gets his first start off the Steve Sherman claim, bet him to cash. 4

Race 2

No. 1 Eltoninadress loves to win races and ships in off of two straight wins and gets her first start off the claim, she will be gunning from the bell but finds other speed in the race and that could set up the race for No. 5 Special Summer who will sit chilly off the hot pace and pounce down the lane. 1-5

Race 3

Race 8

Lots of early speed in here so we will search for someone coming late and that will be No. 7 Demon Dancer who just got his maiden breaker here January 2, he will be flying late and looks like a repeater, we will single in the late pick four. 7

Win and place 7

Race 9

No. 6 Aalsmeer drops back with 20k claimers and ran a good second here at this level one race back after hopping at the start, No. 2 Star of the Dia just missed here at this level last out back in November, he is very steady and it’s a good sign he comes back at the same level off the layoff. 2-6
