BETPTC.COM SPOT PLAYS – Saturday, February 15, 2014

Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering

PARX   Race 3,  7 furlongs   Claiming $7,5002L  (1:19 ET)

Best Value Play: #8 De Rage Girl (10/1)

Most Likely Winner: #7 Catnipper  (5/2)

Other Contenders: #4 Sheedbdawon (4/1), #6 Miss Sweet Afleet (7/2)

 Analysis: Catnipper looks to be much the best even though a big class drop in her second race after a layoff causes suspicion. If she is in shape the race will be no contest. Sheedbdawon is dangerous because she ships in from New York, takes a class drop and is turning back from a route. Miss Sweet Afleet may be a little camera shy but she poses an off the pace threat and she has been bet well in her last several outings. De Rage Girl almost scored at this level a couple of races back, now drops down to take another shot.

 PARX  Race 6,   6 1/2 furlongs  Claiming $16,000 (2:40 ET)

Best Value Play: #3  Thinking of Girls (5/1)

Most Likely Winner: #4 Surprise Strike (5/2)

Other Contenders: #2 Giant’s Tomb (9/2) #5 Miami Mako (2/1)

 Analysis: Surprise Strike drops in class, has a terrific resume and the versatility to with this one without much trouble. Giant’s Tomb has missed winning 4 in a row only by a head. Hard not to like a horse with form this good. Miami Mako was claimed at this level in November and now comes back after a rest. Seems like this one has faced tough company all of his life. Thinking of Girls leaves starter company and has certainly faced tougher in the past…ran for twice this price last year.
