Thistledown 8/18

last minute looks, stating the obvious . . .

Race 1: (Nondescript six pack of Ohio maidens): #6 SEFAPIANO REWARD gets tepid nod; usually perks up a bit when she dips in for a tag. 1-6*-2-5 ($27.60)

Race 2: #3 OUR EYE CANDY distanced most of this field 02August going a mile. #2 TOUR FOR LOVE has recorded the fastest local routes. 6-1-4-3* ($2.80)

Race 3: #6 KATALUST won easily while returning to Ohio company 10July; nice work here Monday. 6*-5-2-3 ($2.40)

Race 4: #4 BOBBYSLUCKYSEVEN was stuck in a hot heat coming off his brief vacation; chance to improve today. 1-3-5-4* ($6.60)

Race 5: (Well balanced field): Perhaps an early speed duel sets the table for #7 PYRITE GREEN. 3-1-6-4 ($5.60)

Race 6: It’s all about speedy #4 YURIBI; her “A” game would be an easy winner. #5 JILLY FROM JERSEY is a grinder worth watching. Scratch #4 YURIBI; 5*-1-6-2 ($14.20)

Race 7: #1a, pp4 I’M IN A HURRY might be the “speed of the speed.” If not, Stablemate #1, pp3 WHERE’S WOODY is an excellent alternative in this field full of need the lead types. (The abundance of “horses for courses” in here = anything can happen.) 1A*-1*-2-4-3 ($3.40)

Race 8: #1a, pp5 ICY INTERLUDE looks like cheap speed but he’s got to be collared. After knocking at the door all summer #7, pp8 WILKO FREEWAY may have found the group he has been seeking. Scratch #1a ICY INTERLUDE; 7*-5-4-10 ($6.60)
