Race 1: 1 Leadership, 3 Chaching Pete, 2 Mr Top Kat
Race 2: 7 Judy Kay,8 Jazz Queen, 6 Val de Saire
Race 3: 3 Bell Wether, 5 Anjamima, 2 Indagreenandbeyond

Race 5: 6 Colton's First, 8 Epic Electorate, 1 Cat Mon Blue
Race 6: 2 Ugottabcatty, 3 Financial Officer, 5 Churchbob
UGOTTABCATTY came from last inside the final half furlong
to score last time and is in solid form. Can repeat. FINANCIAL OFFICER also
woke up late when runner-up that race and remains a threat. The
lightly-raced CHURCHBOB is yet to run a bad race and may measure up.
Race 7: 4 Arraignment, 1 Big Question, 3 Twentyten

NOT BE PERFECT has run better in sprints of late so may recover some form here.
Race 10: *6 Bell Wether, 4 Game Kick, 4 Lasting Smooch

Victor "The Predictor" Cozzetti

Friday, August 1

Well here we go again ,looking for a "Best Bet." With BUDDY DAVE I have no doubts. I see him run often and he looks great. Simply poor racing luck. Rider knows him very well. A key play in today’s Pick-4 and Pick-5.

Saturday, August 2

Saturday's feature sets up very nicely for Jebrica. With three burners
signing on, the pace looms to be quick which is much to his liking. When the
dust clears, Jebrica and Juan Gutierrez figure to get all the chips for the
Jim Penney-trained 6-year-old.

Good Luck
