 Arlington    Race 5   6 furlongs   Claiming $25,000 2L (5:54 ET)

Best Value Play: #4 The Green Cougar (10/1)

Most Likely Winner: #5 Shanghai Red (2/1)

Other Contenders: #1 Gibson’s Bullet (6/1), #7 Takeittothehouse (5/2)

Analysis: Shanghai Red runs for a hot barn with his usual rider and is top form with three runners up in a row. Gibson’s Bullet didn’t like Louisville while facing tougher on the lawn and drops far below claimed level. Takeittothehouse has tons of speed from the gate and is a genuine danger to escort the field past every pole. The Green Cougar runs for Team Block and gets a hot jock. His best races were sprinting on the poly last year as is the case in this event.

Arlington   Race 8   7 furlongs Claiming $7,500 2L (7:254 ET)

Best Value Play: #7 Sweet Afleet (12/1)

Most Likely Winner: #5 Miss Vestal (3/1)

Other Contenders: #2 Tyne Bridge (9/2) #9 Golden Annie (5/1)

Analysis: Miss Vestal looks prime after a good race that produced a good speed figure. Tyne Bridge broke her maiden by double digits and will prompt the pace. Golden Annie ships in from the Empire State and returns after a freshening. She sports a string of good works in Chicago. Sweet Afleet seems to have improved since leaving Tampa and is an off the pace danger in this field.
