Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering

Presque Isle    Race 4,   5 1/2 furlongs Claiming $5,000 (6:40 ET)

Best Value Play: #3 Tenn Roses (5/1)

Most Likely Winner: #9 Roman’s Touch (7/2)

Other Contenders: #2 Adjournment (4/1), #5 Hobo to Hero (3/1)

Analysis: Roman’s Touch shows enough back class in his form to be the winner plus gets the outside post that allows for a perfect stalking trip. Adjournment has shown enough to be dangerous and certainly needs to be considered for the exotics. Hobo to Hero could be the favorite and has the speed figures. He also could run in a lower condition but his trainer placed him here. Tenn Roses has the ultimate weapon and that is speed. He should get the lead and it will be a question of him making it to the wire.      

Presque Isle  Race 5,   6 furlongs  Claiming $5,000 (7:05 ET)

Best Value Play: #9 Castle Quarter (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #4 Dogwoods Lance (5/2)

Other Contenders: #2 Tropical Deputy (3/1) #3 Goodness Greycious (5/1)

Analysis: Dogwoods Lance scored big in an entry level allowance event and drops back in for a small tag. Normally a question mark, but this one looks to be back where he belongs and should be tough. Tropical Deputy is a consistent sort that has maintained good speed figs and could benefit from a stalking trip. Goodness Greycious has notched a dozen career wins and will be a threat from the gate to the wire. Castle Quarter has hit the board 41 times in his career and will be the off the pace threat if a speed duel develops. Never been on the all- weather but sire stats say he will like it.
