PRESQUE ISLE DOWNS Race #3
Tuesday 08/05 03:15 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (VIOLA) (3-1) - This $16,000 claiming event has attracted a very strong field for the level. This grey mare is in top form and has gone 6-4-1-0 here since the start of the meet in May. Stalker has won two in a row at this tag going 6-furlongs and the shortening up of a 1/16th today is not a problem.
2nd pick: #3 (Greatest Dream) (5-1) - Away for almost eight months, she's rounding back into good form and last out here missed by a "head" when facing slightly weaker. By far her best since returning and she has some back class. Win threat at a square price.
3rd pick: #2 (Clear Code) (8-1) - Speedy grey mare finished a pace-chasing third here on July 1st racing for a $7500 tag. Claimed that day by Dale Capuano, he's given her some time off and 6-year-old has a fine 6-furlong local drill showing on July 26th. Don't just dismiss.
4th pick: #4 (Cash Cow) (8-1) - The speed of the speed, filly has gone 3-1-0-2 here since coming off a 6 1/2 month layoff in late May. In career best form at present and her ability to break on top makes her dangerous.
