Oaklawn   Race 5   6 furlongs   Claiming $10,000 (4:32 ET)

Best Value Play: #9 Bridge of Allan (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #7 Original Art (3/1)

Other Contenders: #1 Backdoc (5/1), #5 Value Trap (5/1)

 Analysis: Original Art takes a huge drop second race after being claimed for a much bigger tag. Is it a winning attempt or an attempt to sell the old boy? Hard to ignore the back class. Backdoc will make his first run after being claimed by a good claiming trainer that has him spotted well. Value Trap swaps barns again and will definitely be the pacesetter. The class drop may be all he needs for a victory. Bridge of Allan really faced some toughies in the past and now takes another drop with a jock that is one of the best in that neck of the woods.

Oaklawn   Race 11   6 furlongs   Claiming $6,250 (7:41 ET)

Best Value Play: #12 Proud Image (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #7 Barnie R (5/2)

Other Contenders: #1 Whoopie I Ki O (8/1) #9 Lucky A.C. (9/2)

 Analysis: Barney R goes for the ultra-hot Villafranco barn, turns back from a route and is placed in the hands of a jock often conspiring with the trainer. Whoopie I Ki O returns back to a level where he should be more comfortable and have a better shot at winning. Lucky A.C. is a hard knocking veteran taking a drop for a good barn with a versatile running style. Proud Image may get ignored because he is an Arky bred in open company, but the guy has got speed to contend early and may be in a good spot at a good price.
