Woodbine Race 7 7 furlongs Claiming $10,000 (3:54 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Drenched (15/1)
Most Likely Winner: #12 Bear’s Taurus (3/1)
Other Contenders: #7 Thundering Waters (4/1), #9 Prince Raphael (10/1)
Analysis: Bear’s Taurus gets Husbands in the irons, cuts back from a route and should be the major threat late in the game. Thundering Waters goes back up the claiming ladder and tries to make it a threepeat. Prince Raphael takes a big drop in the second race after a freshener and the distance should suit him well. Drenched drops in class, turns back in distance for trainer Josie Carroll after a semi-break from action.
Woodbine Race 8 6 furlongs Optional Claiming $ 20,000 (4:23 ET)
Best Value Play: #7 Holy Academy (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #5 Duppy Conqueror (2/1)
Other Contenders: #2 Niigon’s Queen (5/2) #3 Ring With Bling (3/1)
Analysis: Duppy Conqueror hasn’t run a bad race in over a year and there is no reason to expect anything but a competitive performance in this one. Niigon’s Queen was a beaten favorite over Duppy last time and looks to be the speed threat. Ring With Bling comes back after a win, fits well with these, will stalk the early pace and should get first run to the wire. Holy Academy returns to battle after a freshening for the very successful jockey-trainer combo and her last work signals readiness.
