Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering

Woodbine   Race 2   5 furlongs   Claiming $12,500 (1:30 ET)

Best Value Play: #3 Quicklime (10/1)

Most Likely Winner: #6 Victoriana Rose (5/2)

Other Contenders: #5 Holy Wow (3/1), #9 Two Brews to Go (7/2)

 Analysis: Victoriana Rose appears to have turned into a monster. She looks hard to beat after that last win at the Fort plus the recent workouts. Holy Wow was dropped until she found the spot and returns to take another condition, which she can do if she gets the lead. Two Brews to Go returns after a rest for trainer Nick Gonzalez with one of his money riders stays aboard, and she drops in class. Quicklime may not have the best win record but she cannot be ignored. She is consistent and can benefit from a hot pace.

Woodbine   Race 7   6 1/2 furlongs Optional $20,000 (4:05 ET)

Best Value Play: #1 Plenty of Honour (15/1)

Most Likely Winner: #2 Holy Academy (7/2)

Other Contenders: #3 Why the Ring (6/1) #7 Tiny Bear (3/1)

 Analysis: Holy Academy comes back to polytrack and, drops in class for a successful combo. Why the Ring gets the blinkers which should keep her closer early and also takes a drop in class. Tiny Bear closed well in last, has plenty of back class and runs for a longtime successful combo. Plenty of Honour raises questions, not just because of the class drop, but because Husbands climbs on board for trainer Sid Attard. Husbands has delivered more winners for Attard in the last five years than any other rider, and Patrick was aboard when this one broke her maiden. The morning line is much too high for this horse.
