$1 play: 5/389/5/45911= $12
Race 7: I'm going to single (5) Autumn Magic who is my Best Bet tonight. She loves this track and has a class edge here, dropping off some solid efforts at Philadelphia.
Race 8: This is a wide open race and all three of my contenders are horses that struggled last year but have backclass. (3) Demanding Force is first time Burke. (8) Sky Tantrum took his mark at this track. (9) Pang Shui is my top pick off a big drop.
Race 9: (5) Wisenheimer has three wins but gets in under the earnings cap. I'll single him in this N/W 2 Series leg.
Race 10: This is the most wide open race of the sequence, a 12 horse C-2 that seems likely to be won by a longshot. I'm using two of the obvious horses, (4) Lizzie's Dream and (5) JK RU Bettor Yet, and two potential big longshots, my top pick (9) I Luv It and (11) Joyful Years.
