MVR 2-1-16

Ramblings aren’t always wagers.

Race 1 – Quick glance at this short field gives the lean to MVR runner on the improve #4 WOULDN’TITBENICE. Speed and fade effort at a mile gives #1 WAR TIDE a chance. #6 SIR GRAY just missed at Turfway going longer against claimers; a win would be the trainer’s first since 2014 – 2-4*-5-6* ($40.20)

Race 2 – #2 (PP1) NUESHTY won fresh here in November; gets first jump from the rail. #5 ARBITER has tangled with some of the fastest in town; trainer’s win % gets a bump when Bermudez rides  – 1-5*-3-4 ($17.20)

Race 3 – #1 BRAVE ELLEN who has been travelling on Inirio’s I-71 shuttle; beat next time winner DREAMINIG OF KITTEN last time here. Returning to two turns has improved #4 CRYPONITE TONITE. #5 TEN CENT HAT makes interesting stretch out off defeat; Giglio barn deserves respect – 2-5*-3-4* ($11.20)

Race 4 – Turfway shippers steal the limelight here. #3 VANDEELITA took money against better at Churchill in November. Three-year-old #6 MICHEVIOUS KAT takes a sharp drop without showing much spark since breaking her maiden but fired a bullet work here 22Jan; FYI: niether of these trainers has shipped a winner in from TP. Local hope #5 BE NICE closed against the bias here 11Jan – 3*-5*-4-2 ($4.00)

Race 5 – #3 (PP2) D’LOVELY DANUTA and #7 PIXIE CHICK continue to seek their winning levels. Ohio beaten-claimers are difficult to trust – 3*-1-4-6 ($3.00)

Race 6 – #1 HE’S ETAIN tries to stretch his win streak to four for sharp connections that know how to string wins together. MVR record setter #2 LUCKYSDREAM has excelled at this distance; was “all out” at the wire last time  – 8-2*-1*-4 ($20.40)

Race 7 – #8 BAYOU ST JOHN might settle off the pace from this post postion; Pilares is back. #3 FALSE POSITIVE just missed when these two last met – 3*-4-5-8* ($6.40)

Race 8 – #2 DYNAFOX stalking while saving ground might work with this speedy bunch; has raced with better. Outside leverage gives #8 SMOOTH ARRIVAL an opportunity to eyeball inside speed.  #5 P BOO TOWN will be the one to catch; distance is an issue – 8*-2*-4-1 ($10.00)
