Race 6: 2 Rainier Ice, 5 Chaching Pete, 3 Mr. Top Kat
RAINIER ICE came up against a solid sprinter when runner-up
last out and can atone here. CHACHING PETE may stick around longer here
given a softer pace is likely. MR. TOP KAT has too good a record to be overlooked.

RAINIER ICE IN TODAYS 6TH RACE LOOKS LIKE A SOLID PLAY ON A TOUGH FRIDAY CARD. THE GELDING CERTAINLY HAS HELD HIS FORM. BARN TAKES A SHOT DROPPING A NOTCH AFTER BEING AWAY, ANOTHER WISE MOVE RETAINING GALLYN MITCHELL TO RIDE. THE KIND I KEY ON TOP AND THEN WALK AWAY.

The last time I saw DEAD EYE, I was working the paddock with John Lindley.
I saw the action he was taking (5/2 at one time), and that I commented I couldn't
play him at all. Well, I about had to eat my words as he came
flying late. I mean flat smoking. He caught my attention and I so noted on my Trip
Sheet. Claimed by sharp barn who'll leg up higher percentage pilot, all
systems go today with Dead Eye.

Moment Of Weakness has been getting close. Ignore the "vanned off" note in his last race, nothing serious. It was more of a preparation problem that wasn’t handled properly. Disappointing as it proved costly in the races final stages. Moment of Weakness gets the money today.


Good Luck
