 Woodbine    Race 1   7 furlongs Claiming $12,500 (1:00 ET)

Best Value Play: #5 Blue Waters (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #4 Simple as That (8/5)

Other Contenders: #1 Classic Ladedah (5/2), #7 Canna Red (4/1)

Analysis: Simple as That runs for a trainer that is deadly with sprinters and gets Husbands, plus a nice class drop. Classic Ladedah drops in class and could be the pacesetter. Canna Red makes an attempt to repeat while going up in conditions but notice that Wilson jumps off Gonzalez’s horse to keep this one, and she rides more winner’s for him than any other jock. Blue Waters is improving and could be a surprise late runner that makes an impact.



Woodbine   Race 8  6 1/2 furlongs (T) Claiming $40,000 2L (4:26 ET)

Best Value Play: #3 Stealth Bolt (12/1)

Most Likely Winner: #8 Big Belief (7/5)

Other Contenders: #5 Shirley Street (9/2) #7 Madcap Duchess (3/1)

Analysis: Big Belief looks to be ready after a rest and useful works. The class drop should also help get her to the wire before others. Shirley Street faced tough guys in open company and returns to a two lifetime condition. Her trainer has huge numbers for third time after layoff. Madcap Duchess keeps Contreras after a dull effort but burned it up with a work last week; probably ready. Stealth Bolt runs for the long time successful barn of Reade Baker. She looks terrible on paper but consider Baker’s numbers with turn back and third layoff runners and it’s a different story. Plus, he will give a leg up to his old friend McAleney.
