Churchill    Race 6,    6 furlongs Claiming $8,000 (3:16 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Fifty Pesos (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #2 John Gordon (5/2)
Other Contenders: #5 S C Redslegacy (7/2), #7 Waldo (8/1)

Analysis: John Gordon spent a lot of time against tougher before dropping down in class. He is also back at Churchill, a track he seems to love. S C Redslegacy failed as the favorite in a higher class over in Hot Springs and seeks an off the pace victory. Waldo ran against some decent horses in Cleveland with blinkers. He now becomes reacquainted with the eyewear and turns back from a route. Fifty Pesos ran well in his only two starts in Louisville and now returns to the Twin Spires. A touch of his back class coupled with his speed could make him a dangerous participant.

Churchill   Race 8,   7 furlongs Allowance 1X (4:18 ET)
Best Value Play: #1 Jrock (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #2 Harvey (5/1)
Other Contenders: #6 Mr. Right (9/2) #7 Starter (4/1)

Analysis: Harvey goes for the hot Calhoun barn with some huge speed numbers. Mr. Right seems to collect a lot of paychecks and doesn’t stop running. Starter is familiar with this level and has a decent record at Churchill. He is a definite threat if the pace gets warm. Jrock runs for an Irishman and will be ridden by a Frenchman. The combo may work especially since he is coming off a huge win in Lexington.
