Woodbine    Race 6   6 furlongs   Optional Claiming $20000 (2:28 ET)

Best Value Play: #9 Rexton (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #8 Check Em (7/2)

Other Contenders: #2 Bear’s Cowboy (5/2), #3 Dr. Harkness (3/1)

Analysis: Check Em should be the controlling speed of the race, takes a drop and gets Husbands in the saddle. Bear’s Cowboy goes for Baker after a rest, a sharp work and a drop to his lowest level ever. Dr. Harkness must be used even though he has a difficult time finding the Winner’s Circle, plus the addition of blinkers should help his cause. Rexton is always seems to be knocking on the door and should benefit from adding blinkers.

Woodbine   Race 7  6 1/2 furlongs Allowance 2L (2:57 ET)

Best Value Play: #9 Ring With Bling (6/1)

Most Likely Winner: #4 Niigon’s Queen (5/1)

Other Contenders: #10 I Scream Sunday (8/1) #12 Natural Blonde (3/1)

Analysis: Niigon’s Queen drops back from stakes company, may control the pace and keeps Stein aboard. I Scream Sunday may be on the brink of a break out race and it is important to note that Husbands remains in the saddle. Natural Blonde is a little camera shy, but it is hard to leave her out after her last race and considering the usually effective jockey trainer combo. Ring With Bling set the track ablaze with a work last week and is a definite off the pace threat.
