Race 3

#8 Mardene (23% Win Projection) 2-1 ML

Comments: Despite being a 16-race maiden, the big class drop here for Mardene might finally find the winning spot. A trio of other contenders here tied at 14% Win Projections next; the numbers say single or you’ll wind up spreading very thin.

Race 4

#3 Mi Tormenta (20% Win Projection) 8-1 ML
#11 I’ll Take the Gold (16% Win Projection) 5-1 ML
#7 Charlotte’s Silver (13% Win Projection) 6-1 ML

Comments: The top-2 morning line choices don’t get billing from the algorithm, but three medium prices have emerged to give some minor upset coverage.

Race 5

#8 Crimson Nights (23% Win Projection) 3-1 ML

Comments: There’s a big, 11-point gap in the Win Projections between Crimson Nights and anyone else, despite the top pick’s 0-12 career record. She’s knocked on the door, however, and may have found the right bunch. Next-best here is #4 Cherry Gardens 12% (9-2 ML), second in 3 of her last 4 starts, and then a huge cluster between 8-10%. Adding Cherry Gardens isn’t the worst idea, but the numbers suggest singling.

Race 6

#2 Colonel Mustard (22% Win Projection) 7-2 ML
#7 Leslie Chow (19% Win Projection) 3-1 ML
#3 Basketball Jones (16% Win Projection) 2-1 ML

Comments: It’s only a field size of 7, so many will narrow here. You could find value outside favorite, Basketball Jones, who has been beaten at 2-1 odds in two straight. But Colonel Mustard and Leslie Chow are only 2-for-31 lifetime combined, so they’re not obvious win machines.

Race 7

#8 Oheavens (27% Win Projection) 10-1 ML

Comments: Probably the boldest separator here from the 1/ST BET AI as it is Oheavens at a nice price and then a long, 12-point ways back to a cluster of contenders. The inside three are all between 13-15%, while there’s no love for the top two ML wagering choices.

Race 8

#5 T’pring (20% Win Projection) 3-1 ML
#13 Sweeping Passion (18% Win Projection) 8-1 ML
#11 Gunnawin (12% Win Projection) 6-1 ML

Comments: With a massive field of 14 in the main body, at the bottom-level maiden claiming ranks no less, comfort is in numbers. T’pring has been second in two straight, but winless in 24 starts. Sweeping Passion has been in the money in 4 of 8, a more appealing overall record. Inconsistent Gunnawin’s race two starts back might win this.
