Thistledown 9/5

Race 1: #6 KISS LIMIT will force the pace today. #5 MALIBU WEST is on a tear; won’t get away with slow fractions here. Youngsters seem to hold advantage over journeymen. 4/5*/3/1 ($13.40)

Race 2: #6 ALLURING APPROVAL chases a familiar target; likes today’s distance. Glenroy Brown (#2 VALKIMQUA) is 2/2 with Finger Lakes imports. 6*/3/1/4 ($7.60)

Race 3: #6 JOHNNY UTAH has the best speed in here; needs some pace to chase. #4 DUBACIOUS was freshened after finally dropping to this realistic level. 4*/1/6*/3 ($9.00)

Race 4: ACCREDITED Ohio-bred maiden races can easily produce random results. #1 MT. ORAB KIDD has done his best running in Cleveland. 8/2/6/7 ($10.60)

Race 5: #5 RUNNIN GUN is the fastest local runner at this distance. It appears that if #4 UNCLE WALTER is ever going to get his act together it will be on dirt. 2/6/3/7 ($3.40)

Race 6: Ship-ins muddy the waters but #7, pp8 SHE’S A CITY GAL certainly looks right; rolling into form; claimed by sharp barn. The Shanyfelt stable (#4 ROADA WISH) is heating up. 2/7*/6/3 ($5.80)

Race 7: The abundance of solid speed in here might set this up for #1, pp3 WHERE’S WOODY; always closing but not across the wire first since December 2016. #1a I’M IN A HURRY and #4 DANCING KING could put on test of heart up front. 1/1a*/5/3 ($3.40)

Race 8: #2 M G JUNIOR gets another shot at a level where he can compete. 1/2*/5/3 ($11.00)
