Woodbine    Race 3   6 1/2 furlongs   Claiming $12,500 3L (1:56 ET)

Best Value Play: #5 Echo Flat Out (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #6 Speyside (7/5)

Other Contenders: #3 Goodnight Hawk (5/1), #8 Western Tune (5/2)

Analysis: Speyside is a legitimate favorite taking a drop for the powerful Reade Baker barn and keeping Stein aboard. Goodnight Hawk runs second time after a rest, gets Contreras and steps up after a win. Western Tune drops after finishing third three consecutive races-in form and dropping. Echo Flat Out can be a late threat and trainer Chircop switches to his all-time winning rider, Campbell.

Woodbine   Race 7  1 1/16 miles  Claiming 8,000 2L (3:57 ET)

Best Value Play: #8 Data Based (12/1)

Most Likely Winner: #1 Theregoestheblonde (6/1)

Other Contenders: #4 Big Daddy Bill (5/2) #10 Cape Zavata (9/2)

Analysis: Theregoestheblonde takes a subtle drop and stretches out with a enough back class to make the difference. Big Daddy Bill removes the blinkers and should be rolling late in the game. Cape Zavata has hit the board enough and has good enough speed figures to warrant consideration. Data Based could be a very good price because of a cold trainer and cold jock, but do notice the big drop in class with blinkers added.
