JACK HAMMER (2) worked forward from gate 6 in a 2nd division band 5 race last start and held ground when 10m from the winner TOP TRIO. He does his best work when able to get forward and with brilliant stand manners and a great record at the tapes, he can get forward and dictate.
MAJOR SCORE (5) will find this easier than the stand he took on last start when locked away on the pegs and sprinting home sharply to finish 3m from the winner MACH ALERT. That was his debut from the tapes and with a similar effort can give this a shake.
PROFICIENT (4) is racing in top form and has been a winner in 2 of his past 4 starts. Forced to work in the run last start he fought hard to the line when 3m 3rd to IOWNATURBO. He is in the mix, just needs to step cleanly.
PLAYNSERIOUS (8) is another making his 1st race appearance from the tapes.A strong winner at AP 4 starts back when sent around to the breeze, he is off the short back-up and has the handy record of 2 wins from 3 starts at the track.
SELECTIONS: JACK HAMMER (2), MAJOR SCORE (5), PROFICIENT (4), PLAYNSERIOUS (8)
