Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering

Oaklawn   Race 4,   6 furlongs   Claiming $7,500 (3:52 ET)

Best Value Play: #5 Kentucky Lightnin (15/1)

Most Likely Winner: #8 Crown’s Path (8/5)

Other Contenders: #6 Dixie Banner (3/1), #7 Denali Thunder (5/2)

 Analysis: Crown’s Path was claimed back at Keeneland for a higher amount by the hot Chris Richard barn. He looks ready to go and should handle these. Dixie Banner has finished in the money 24 times and is a threat from off the pace. Denali Thunder will be all or nothing on the front end. A “wire” job is very possible. Kentucky Lightnin will probably be overlooked but if he returns to form of last year he will be rolling late.

Oaklawn   Race 6,   5 1/2 furlongs   Claiming $7,5003L (4:46 ET)

Best Value Play: #10 Corporate Intrigue (12/1)

Most Likely Winner: #7 Royal Dehere (8/5)

Other Contenders: #1 Sharp Harbour (7/2) #6 Easily Tricked (10/1)

 Analysis: Royal Dehere was claimed by the Richard barn after a big win. The slight jump in class should not pose a problem. Sharp Harbour fits well with this crew and will be in the thick of things late in the game. Easily Tricked makes his second run after a layoff and sports decent speed figures from the past. Corporate Intrigue is a risky play, but a return to form of a few months ago and he can be a winner.
