Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering 

Arlington     Race 6  (4:40 ET)  6 Furlongs    Claiming $20,000

Best Value Play: # 3 Slick Pardoned Me (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #4 Moroccan Brew (4/1)

Other Contenders: # 2 Strike the Tiger (7/2), #7 Roarin Missle (4/1)

Analysis: High percentage trainer Hugh Robertson sends out Moroccan Brew with a small drop and some useful works for a race that fits the colt well. Strike The Tiger was claimed for a lower price last time but should prove to be a tough old pro in this field. Roarin Missle likes the distance and likes Arlington-more than enough to win. Slick Pardoned Me could be the surprise with the right pace and loves artificial surfaces.


 Churchill   Race 11  (6:00 ET)  6 Furlongs   Claiming $30,000 3L

Best Value Play: # 10 Tyrus (10/1)

Most Likely Winner: # 7 Radiant Talent (5/2)

Other Contenders: # 2 Le Mans (3/1), # 9 Indisputable (8/1)

Analysis: There is no doubt that Radiant Talent is the one to beat. The Fairgrounds shipper has an impressive history and drops in class. Le Mans is trained by the dangerous Steve Asmussen who drops his charge in class. Indisputable has shown impressive preparation after his layoff and looks capable in this field. Tyrus drops lower than ever before, gets blinkers and zipped a strong work in Lexington last week-beware.
