Monmouth Race 1, 6 Furlongs Claiming $5,000 (12:50 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 Ominous Thomas (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #4 Drinks to Go (3/2)
Other Contenders: #1 Lord Chelsie (9/5), #3 Chasin the Cash (5/1)
Analysis: Drinks to Go should be toasting a win when the dash is over. Most prominent speed figure and double digit lifetime wins make him tough. Lord Chelsie takes a little drop and has the back class to take these. Chasin the Cash comes in from Penn National with a win against similar and ran against much tougher in New York earlier this year. Ominous Thomas changes barns after a dismal effort but has plenty of early zip to upset the field.
Woodbine Race 3, 6 Furlongs Claiming $10,000 3L (1:47 ET)
Best Value Play: #2 Best of John (15/1)
Most Likely Winner: # 6 Fantastic Prospect (3/1)
Other Contenders: #2 No Appreciation (3/1), #3 Runnaway My Way (7/2)
Analysis: Last race may have been bad but Fantastic Prospect takes a huge drop and trainer Attard keeps his money man on board. No Appreciation gets the blinkers and that may renew this gelding’s early speed. Runnaway My Way doesn’t like his picture taken but figures make him hard to ignore. Best of John takes a big drop and may surprise if he returns to his old form.
