Race 7

WILLY BE SMART looked good win­ning a race sim­i­lar to this at NP Aug. 11. He must deal with a change of venue but he’s run well here be­fore (two sec­onds in two tries). STAY GLAD has blos­somed of late and gets a most en­cour­ag­ing mul­ti­plelevel price hike. MOMTHINKSIMCUTE turned the cor­ner this sum­mer at NP but af­ter a big maiden win was over­matched in his first try vs. win­ners there Aug. 25, while also go­ing a dis­tance he’d never seen. He dropped back to this level and a shorter trip here Sept. 8 and re­sponded well, run­ning on to be a clear sec­ond. (3)

Race 8

ONLY ONE KISS found open stakes foes too tough at NP July 18 but she’s been fresh­ened and moves back in vs. state­breds only. She worked well here Sept. 7. FOOL­ISH BLUE MOON showed tal­ent at NP a few months ago, was fresh­ened and came back here Sept. 2 to eas­ily beat maid­ens so she’s ap­par­ently fig­ured things out. CAN’T TOUCH THIS set the pace be­fore fin­ish­ing sec­ond to ‘MOON in that Sept. 2 race but re­mem­ber this gal was the heavy 9-10 fa­vorite. (3)

Race 9

I MISS BACK WHEN con­tin­ues her solid form and she’ll ap­pre­ci­ate not see­ing top distaffer Raider lined up against her here, hav­ing chased that beast in her last four starts. EMMA JEAN TOO looked like a new horse blast­ing ri­vals in a sprint at 12-1 at NP Aug. 18. The ques­tion is, can she be as ef­fec­tive rout­ing? (2)

Race 10

THOU SHALT SLEW comes off a pow­er­ful win at MD go­ing a mile. He short­ens to 6 fur­longs but that shouldn’t mat­ter as he won at this trip at MD July 6. He fig­ures in it from the bell. QUICK SIX looked good wiring maid­ens at NP Aug. 6, do­ing so af­ter stum­bling at the start. He fig­ures the one to catch. A GUY CALLED SUE was a de­cent third in a race like this here Sept. 3 so he’s a good fit. There’s am­ple speed in here, too, which may bol­ster his late run. (3)
