Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering

Oaklawn   Race 6,   6 furlongs   Claiming $30,000 (4:46 ET)

Best Value Play: #7 Shimmy Tinjo (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #4 Rhetorical (2/1)

Other Contenders: #1 Total Immersion (3/1), #5 Original Art (6/1)

 Analysis: Rhetorical will be the one to beat due to his impressive resume and a smoking hot effort last out. Total Immersion was claimed by one of the best in the business last time and returns to battle after a couple of useful works. Original Art looks to be about even with Total Immersion and certainly has the capability to take this one. Shimmy Tinjo ran terribly last time, takes a drop from tough allowance company and once ran very close with Rhetorical. He may have a shot if the back class kicks in.

Oaklawn   Race 7,   6 furlongs   Starter $30,000 (5:14 ET)

Best Value Play: #8 Givmethreestepsmr (10/1)

Most Likely Winner: #5 Pretzel Logic (4/1)

Other Contenders: #1 Indian Alley (5/1) #2 Southern Symphony (5/1)

 Analysis: Pretzel Logic goes for the ultra-hot Villafranco barn, and his second time claims normally do well. Indian Alley was right behind Pretzel Logic last time and has a good chance with a little luck along the rail. Southern Symphony actually outfinished Pretzel Logic last time but will need a lot of luck with her habit of running so late. Givmethreestepsmr has several good races disguised in her form and looks to be ready in her second race after a rest.
