Woodbine Race 6, 6 furlongs $16,000 (3:28 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Best Behavior (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #10 Winter Lady (4/1)
Other Contenders: #3 Helio Bird (5/2), #7 Sweet Cup (3/1)
Analysis: Winter Lady gets her serious jockey to return and this consistent runner should get a great trip from the outside. Helio Bird takes a drop for a combo that does well together and posts the best last race speed figure. Sweet Cup runs for one of the best combos in Toronto and looks for her third straight win. Best Behavior goes for new high percentage barn that does well with first claims and Stein is a competent pilot for this speedball that could steal the race.
Woodbine Race 7, 7 furlongs Allowance 2L (3:57 ET)
Best Value Play: #1 Bears Grace (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #3 Pipers Future (5/2)
Other Contenders: #2 Firewithdesire (8/1) #12 Cryptonite Tonite (8/1)
Analysis: Pipers Future turns back to a sprint, is a beaten favorite and keeps Contreras in the saddle. Firewithdesire is another turn back that will come from off the pace for the tough combo of Steve Attard and Campbell. Cryptonite Tonite looks inviting on the return trip for trainer Buttigieg, who puts one of his top riders on board. Bears Grace is a double digit morning line with Pat Husbands riding-how often do we see that in Toronto? A clean getaway and she could rob this field of all chances.
