Oaklawn Race 1, 5 1/2 furlongs Claiming $7,500 (2:30 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 Dixie Banner (12/1)
Most Likely Winner: #10 Keepinonestepahead (4/1)
Other Contenders: #2 Gallant Gent (5/2), #9 Tobes the Man (5/1)
Analysis: Keepinonestepahead has 14 career wins and looks ready in his second race off a rest. Trainer scores early with claims and he took this one two races back. Gallant Gent ran in the tough southern California circuit and makes his second start since moving eastward. Tobes the Man make his second start after being claimed and after a layoff. He has the numbers and a post for a good stalking trip. Dixie Banner hasn’t won in a while but he carried his speed a little longer last time and a return to last year’s form will make him a major threat.
Oaklawn Race 2, 6 furlongs Claiming $5,000 (2:57 ET)
Best Value Play: #11 Sheer Joy (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #3 Stay Sees Mom (3/1)
Other Contenders: #6 Foxy Affair (4/1) #9 Blessed Moon (9/2)
Analysis: Stay Sees Mom has a quarter of her races and looks prime after a tune up race for her layoff. Foxy Affair looks a little bit overmatched, but he goes for the hottest trainer around and turns back in distance. Blessed Moon fits well at this level, won her last and drops a little bit. Sheer Joy won a half dozen times last year. She has posted some good numbers and the far outside post will be perfect for her running style.
