RACE 1 Thistledown Picks
SOLE FACTOR was an unfortunate second here last month and could go one better to claim a first win since November under Luis Rivera. GIFT FROM MOM and Sheza Fine Justice are also noted.
WIN: SOLE FACTOR
VALUE: GIFT FROM MOM
RACE 2 Thistledown Picks
MAXIMIZER finished second behind KHALFANI here last month before confirming the form with a win of his own a few days later. He might have been unlucky during the first of those outings, and is taken to reverse the placings. Will Runaway can take third.
RACE 3 Thistledown Picks
DREAM ON JILLY will have entered a few notebooks when finishing second here earlier in the month and shaped there as though stepping back up to a mile would really suit her. THREE ILLUSIONS is on a hat-trick but faces stronger opponents here, while Myositis Mystique is a lazy type and should appreciate this extra test of stamina.
WIN: DREAM ON JILLY
VALUE: THREE ILLUSIONS
RACE 4 Thistledown Picks
OLLIVANDER arrives having won his last couple of starts and his most recent victory, when beating Gizmo Jones by five and three quarter lengths, makes him tough to oppose. DARINGLY BOLD may pose the main threat dropping in grade.
VALUE: DARINGLY BOLD
RACE 5 Thistledown Picks
GOES TOO FAST has been knocking on the door and is taken to get his head back in front. The main dangers appear to be IRON MEN OF METZ and Kid Russell.
WIN: GOES TOO FAST
VALUE: IRON MEN OF METZ
RACE 6 Thistledown Picks
NATIVE HAWK was no match for an easy winner on his latest start at Gulfstream Park but the eight-year-old can gain compensation this time around. HIGHLAND PARK HERO and Small Town Hero appeal most of the remainder.
WIN: NATIVE HAWK
VALUE: HIGHLAND PARK HERO
RACE 7 Thistledown Picks
BEARPATH has been knocking on the door and wouldn’t be winning out of turn, though preference is for MISTER MOBIL, who ran well for a long way over 6f last time and could appreciate this slight drop in trip. Danefield is no forlorn hope for a place.
WIN: MISTER MOBIL
RACE 8 Thistledown Picks
SPRING CITY GAL hinted her turn was approaching when second here last time. Cascabria is a model of consistency and can fight it out with Flashy Patch for the silver medal.
WIN: SPRING CITY GAL
VALUE: FLASHY PATCH
