Arlington    Race 2   6 1/2 furlongs   Claiming $5,000 (2:29 ET)

Best Value Play: #7 Bluegrass Type (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #5 I’ll Show Them (9/5)

Other Contenders: #1 Rich City Dude (6/2), #2 Ideal Alluvial (9/2)

Analysis: I’ll Show Them has a very impressive resume and a versatile style. Definitely the one to beat. Rich City Dude will be at the mercy of the pace but if they go to fast to early he could be the one to pick up the pieces. Ideal Alluvial can be ultra dangerous if he can convert his route speed to sprint speed with stamina being the biggest question. Bluegrass Type has moved around a lot and made a living, he likes Arlington and this experienced veteran can be tough if he fires his best shot.

Arlington   Race 5   6 1/2 furlongs  Claiming $7,500 3L (3:56 ET)

Best Value Play: #4 Toews (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #9 Myles (5/2)

Other Contenders: #2 Sheriff Bart (6/1) #6 Python (3/1)

Analysis: Myles comes back quick after a decent race and his consistency in speed figures gives him the nod. Sheriff Bart keeps the hot jock and his last pair suggest he is in top form. Python is dangerous because of his tactical speed and takes a drop in price while moving up in conditions. Toews could repeat if he duplicates his last effort and Baird stays aboard.
