Race 7: Lots of wide open races tonight. In this race I'm going to go four deep and use all of my contenders, (1) Princess Cruiser, (5) Cheyenne Miriam, (6) Big McDeal, and (8) Bullet Point.
Race 8: (2) Sweet Jusice is razor sharp but I have to use (3) Il Mago, who went a big trip behind the favorite last week, and (6) Lauderdale, who is picking up Gingras for Burke.
Race 9: (4) Olivia V ships in from Woodbine for a good outfit and lands in the Burke barn while picking up Gingras. This is a wide open race but I'm going to single this one on the theory that I have to take a stand somewhere.
Race 10: (5) Mr Fenwick sort of sticks out here but he's not all that reliable. I'll also use (4) Twin B Spike Man, a trotter that can be trouble when he stays flat.
