Race 3: 6- Thrill Seeker – Finished a strong third, in her last effort, but closed home strong in 28.0, that could be enough. 2- Dirty Blonde – Got very rough in the final ¼ at Scioto, and tired late, giving another chance tonight. 7- Tiffany Rocks As – Raced well from the inside last out and is looking to continue improving.
Race 4: 9- Muscolo – Got a tough trip from the outside in his last start, expect a better trip from the second tier. 8- Walltocousins – Another with a big shot in here, throw out the last start. 2- Airzooms Image – Hasn’t gotten the best of trips against Open and Open II company, should improve with class relief.
Race 5: 1- Prsntpretynperfect – Draws extremely well after winning from post 7 in her last effort, she jumps off the page. 2- Kay Again – Has the ability to be prominently placed on this ticket. 8- Bad Girls Rule – Should get a good trip from the far outside.
Race 6: 2- Silver Spir – Has hit the board in her last two starts, one of them from the outside; could strike against this class.1- Mcport In A Storm – Could step up and race well tonight.6- Grant Land – Looks to be in the thick of the action from mid-pack. 4- Enjoy The Scenery – Draws well this week after a tough effort from post seven last out, improvement could come here.
Race 7: 1- Shakewhatmamagaveu – Draws into a race where several could win; this one gets the slight call over the others to get the job done. 9- Pure Paradise – Has some half mile track experience and that should play to her favor tonight. 5- Ask Me Ifi Care – Should not be overlooked as a potential competitor in here.
Race 8: 4- Classic Gent – Got a brutal trip from post seven in his last start, facing company that he has beaten before. 9- Thinkofagameplan – Was 2nd in his last start against this class, draws decently and can come from off the pace. 2- Dalhousie Dave – Could add value to the ticket.
Race 9: 1- Belle’svictoryring – Is the speed of the race and should race well upon returning to Northfield. 6- Somebody As – Another that looks to be tough in here. 9- Keystone Chester – Has been racing well and that trend should continue. 8- Palmers Pride – Looks to be a factor in here, my only concern is post position.
Race 10: 6- Milliron Pete – Dropping down to face easier after two tough efforts, his closing kick will make him dangerous. 1- World Of Gaming – Stepped up to this class last time out and raced very well, should not be overlooked. 3- Finnish First – Should get a good trip as the Scioto Downs invader.
Race 11: 7- Sports Sinner – Looked very sharp from the outside in his last start and I expect another big effort. 5- Southwind Amazon – Has been very dangerous from a post other than the outside, throw out the parked out journey. 6- Lincolnjames – Has a lot of speed and will be up to contend with the pace early.
