Oaklawn Race 6, 6 furlongs Claiming $7,500 (4:46 ET)
Best Value Play: #4 Denali Thunder (20/1)
Most Likely Winner: #8 Defer Heaven (8/1)
Other Contenders: #10 Prospect Knight (8/1), #11 Muazzaz (20/1)
Analysis: Defer Heaven has the best chance to win if he can get the lead in this wide open affair. Prospect Knight takes the double drop after being claimed a few back and his connections do well together. Muazzaz has a good resume and has run some good ones, even finishing a close second to Defer Heaven in Lexington. Denali Thunder left smoke on the track after the hot gate work and takes a drop for a trainer that needs a win.
Oaklawn Race 7, 6 furlongs Optional $40,000 (5:14 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Officer Alex (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #4 Alsvid (6/5)
Other Contenders: #1 Brewing (7/2) #2 Unbridled’s Note (5/2)
Analysis: Alsvid runs for hot connections, delivered a recent sizzling work and appears to be the class in a good field. Brewing goes for Lukas and will attempt to win with his best weapon-speed. Unbridled’s Note hasn’t won in a while and now winds down to his lowest level in quite some time, but he has Asmussen as his conditioner. Officer Alex may appear outgunned but he has faced tough company for a long time and ran evenly in a good field last out.
