Woodbine Race 4, 6 1/2 furlongs Claiming $8,000 (2:37 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 True Executive (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #8 Tevez (5/2)
Other Contenders: #4 Tapitdar (6/1), #7 Machito (7/2)
Analysis: Tevez goes for lucky career win number thirteen and despite his advanced age warrants top consideration, and Da Silva stays aboard. True Executive has racked up a long list of solid, consistent speed figures and gets an upgrade in the saddle to Wilson. Tapitdar has plenty of back class and comes back for his second race of the year, and he should be tight and ready to go. Machito can be versatile and he gets the blinkers removed-high win percentage and loves the artificial surface.
Woodbine Race 8, 6 1/2 furlongs Optional $62,500 (4:50 ET)
Best Value Play: #4 Remebel (20/1)
Most Likely Winner: #1 Tamazula (2/1)
Other Contenders: #3 Dancing Ashley (6/1) #8 Big Brown Brookski (3/1)
Analysis: Tamazula will be coming late in the show but this one has the class, the consistency and may get a speed duel up front. Remebel could be the play of the week in Toronto. Trainer Reade Baker is one of the best in the business and second time layoff runners are one of his specialties. The three long works and moving the filly back to a longer sprint is probably a recipe for success. Dancing Ashley has a terrific resume and should be prime for a good outing being her third race after a long layoff. Big Brown Brookski is a tough customer with blistering speed and if they don’t burn her early she may provide an escort all the way to the wire.
