BEST BET: RACE 2, SILENT TANGO

FIRST RACE

KEY RED checked in sec­ond in each of her last two ex­cur­sions vs. $20K maid­ens. She can find the mark in this $16K maiden tilt, with Kimura back aboard. MINE FAST PHILLY was in solid maid­en­claim­ing form prior to a fad­ing fourth in a re­cent maiden spe­cial. FIELD LET­TERS is de­but­ing with a sprint-ori­ented pedi­gree, al­though her sire has got­ten just 8% first-out win­ners.

SEC­OND RACE

SILENT TANGO has worked well since a dis­ap­point­ing fifth-place fin­ish as the fa­vorite in a $20K route Nov. 11. She could make some noise off the claim by a ca­pa­ble con­di­tioner, at a price that should be ap­peal­ing. NO EX­TEN­SIONS placed in both of her Novem­ber out­ings at this level, races which fol­lowed an ex­tended lay­off. SOME RIGHT NICE is el­i­gi­ble to im­prove sec­ond-time out in her first try for McKnight.

THIRD RACE

QUEEN OF SUM­MER was blocked on the turn be­fore closing for third in her first at­tempt at this $10K NW2 class Nov. 18. Lead­ing rider Da Silva takes over for lead­ing trainer McKnight on the lightly-raced NY-bred, who worked a bul­let the other day. CORKER ben­e­fited from an in­side bias be­fore drift­ing out late when earn­ing her diploma with a good Beyer for this cal­iber of com­pe­ti­tion. DI­A­MOND EX­PRESS was sur­pris­ingly empty when drop­ping to this level five weeks ago. She de­serves a mul­li­gan with Kimura tak­ing over.

FOURTH RACE

SPIRIT OF CALE­DON failed to hit the top two this year while a fringe player vs. $20K and OS/$40K com­pany. The drop to $10K B com­pany is sig­nif­i­cant, and he fig­ures to be prom­i­nent with Ryan back in the sad­dle. ITSTARTSWITHADRINK is plung­ing back down to the lower ranks off a slow­start­ing sixth for $40K. Si­mon Hus­bands in­her­its the mount from the sus­pended Fuku­moto on the 4yo. PLEAS­ANT FOR­EST ral­lied from far off rapid splits to land a re­cent $20K NW2 route. The pace won’t be as hot this time. Use SEIZE THE BAY un­derneath in the gim­micks.

FIFTH RACE

GAM­BLE’S CANDY has worked en­cour­ag­ingly for a suc­cess­ful owner/trainer combo. The daugh­ter of high-per­cent­age de­but sire Twirling Candy is half­sis­ter to the pre­co­cious stakes win­ner Blue­blood. Her dam romped in her only start, earn­ing an 86 Beyer. FU­RI­OUSLY FAST ral­lied for sec­ond be­hind the fu­ture N1X win­ner Pearl Heist (78 Beyer) at first ask­ing in a quick maiden spe­cial Nov. 3. CALAIS CAT is adding blink­ers off a fresh­en­ing. She could be along to pick up some of the pieces. KA GEE GEE is an­other prospect for the lower rungs of the ex­otics.

SIXTH RACE

SOUPER RIPTIDE ral­lied from 10 lengths back for sec­ond be­fore gal­lop­ing out very strongly at first ask­ing in a Nov. 18 sprint. The blue-blooded son of Tapit will ap­pre­ci­ate the stretchout to a mile and a six­teenth here with Lasix added. FULL EX­TREME placed in each of his last four starts, in­clud­ing a nar­row loss in an iden­ti­cal spot two weeks ago. Mary­land in­vader STEREO VIEW­ING is tak­ing on the boys. She hung late when sec­ond in both of her races, and could be in the hunt for the mi­nors. First-time geld­ing RU­MORS OF VI­O­LENCE is an­other nicely-bred Mary­land ship­per.

SEV­ENTH RACE

RINCE TAPAIGH and MODUS OPERANDI are both

turn­ing back while drop­ping from an N1X route. Note that they ran one-two in a $25K claimer over seven fur­longs Oct. 27. UN­SEEN AN­GELS faded late to fin­ish fourth be­hind the afore­men­tioned duo af­ter set­ting the pace then. Seven-eighths is a bit far­ther than she wants to go, but she could round out the tri as an un­der­lay.

EIGHTH RACE

Mary­land-based GLOBAL AC­CESS over­came a trou­bled trip to grad­u­ate here sec­ond-time out in a Tapeta route Oct. 31, from which the third horse ex­ited to dom­i­nate maiden spe­cial types with a 70 Beyer. The half-brother to stakes win­ner March to the Arch ap­pears to have plenty of up­side. SIR WIN­STON is adding blink­ers off a wide/closing third in the G3 Grey, a suc­cess­ful an­gle for Casse, es­pe­cially in lo­cal stakes. Ken­tucky ship­per BAY­TOWN JIMBO saved ground be­fore end­ing up sec­ond here in a re­cent N1X won by Fed­eral Law, who came back to fin­ish a bang-up sec­ond in the Coronation Futurity. THE BOSS FAC­TOR is chart­ing un­known ter­ri­tory around two turns, off a front-run­ning maiden romp over seven fur­longs.

NINTH RACE

L. A. HOUSE awaited room on the far turn en route to fin­ish­ing third be­hind the two fa­vorites in an iden­ti­cal spot Nov. 23. This third race of her form cy­cle could be a peak one. DOLLY DAG­GER just missed af­ter a wide/stalk­ing trip in the above­men­tioned event, which was her first start around two turns. ACHAINOFLOVE landed on the edges be­hind the top two picks af­ter closing wide on her left lead that day.

TENTH RACE

MAG­I­CAL MAN is worth a flyer in this sec­ondlevel op­tional claimer, even though he’s been a vet scratch since win­ning his third straight al­lowance Oct. 20. He fig­ures to be press­ing what could be a mod­er­ate pace, and might have enough left to hold off the closers. CON­QUEST LEMONRAID has been knock­ing on the door at this level, but his hang­ing ten­den­cies make him a dicey win play. He ben­e­fited from an anti-speed bias when los­ing his last out­ing to a re­ju­ve­nated 3yo. MARTEN LAKE has been rock solid through­out the meet against op­tional-starter com­pany. He’s a good fit from a Beyer per­spec­tive, which is also the case with GLACIER.

ELEVENTH RACE

SCREEN­WRITER was a bit rank early last time when a prom­i­nent sec­ond in an N1X over 10 fur­longs. The turn­back to nine fur­longs could be ideal for the daugh­ter of Ghostzap­per. PER­FEC­TION CAT out­ran the top choice for sec­ond in a nine-fur­long N1X Oct. 28, when she put up a 75 Beyer. The run­nerup from her re­cent flat fourth re­turned to win an N1X (73 Beyer). HOLY FORT rode an in­side bias in a gate-to-wire maiden spe­cial tri­umph Oct. 7. She’s worked okay since, and Da Silva in­her­its the mount from the in­jured Pa­trick Hus­bands. CAPE MIST is an­other pos­si­bil­ity.
