MATT DINERMAN

Race 1: 2-Call Me Never, 1-Web of Demons, 5-Arviat Bay

Race 2: 5-Tres Twain, 4-Sharp Focus, 3-Hello Brown

Race 3: 7-Swiss Script, 1-Knife River, 6-No No

Race 4: 1-Meatball Paul, 5-Memphis Mobster, 8-Geldaudomat

Race 5: 7-Bob Is Back, 5-Parkers Bluff, 6-Secret Harbor

Race 6: 2-Coming in Hot, 5-Hoody, 3-Cause I’m Bad

2-Coming in Hot makes his first start since October for trainer Blaine Wright, who wins at a 26% clip with runners making their first start off a layoff longer than 180 days. This gelding runs his best races over this track and has been working very quickly in preparation for his 2017 debut. Since this is a waiver-claiming race, Blaine opts to protect him so he cannot be claimed; that’s a positive sign. 5-Hoody was very competitive at the open 10k claiming level all of last year and has hit the board in the majority of his races. He fits in well with this group. 3-Cause I’m Bad finished third at this level on opening night and could hit the board again with his best race. A good one to use in exotics at what might be a decent price.

Race 7: 2- *Thorn Legacy, 4-Royal Patriot, 7-Our Power Surge

*best bet

VICTOR THE PREDICTOR

Best Bet today as usual this time of the year is a real challenge….. VALID KEIKI although has been training very well towards his return, long lay off for 3-year-old’s generally means a small problem came up last year so he was given plenty of R & R. The work tab shows he’s ready and has talent. He’s worth a long look in exotics.
