Carryovers: None

Race 65-1-4-2In this starter/optional claiming race at six furlongs, #5 Arrivederla (2-1) ran a strong race last time and lost by a nose while closing on the winner. He also seemed to have a strong edge over Chargin Storm in that same race and is the one to beat here…  #1 Chargin Storm (5-2) is our second choice. If this half of the Jamie Ness entry runs, he will be a solid contender with good speed figures and a class advantage over some others in here… #4 No More Talk (7-2) has had a case of seconditis lately, but it is hard to ignore him since he has seven lifetime victories and he has a win in his only other try at Delaware Park… #2 Great Go Go (8-1) has lots of early speed and may get an uncontested lead, which is always dangerous.
Race 73-4-5-2In the $40,000 allowance race for non-winners of two at a mile and a sixteenth on the turf, #3 Tapwood (8-5) was pressured early last time but dug in and held on for second in a game effort. There may be less pressure up front today, and he looks strong against this group… #4 No One to Blame (4-1) had a strong effort last time here at Delaware where he closed late to finish third. If he can repeat his 74 speed figure today, he will be right in the mix… #5 Operative (20-1) had a very tough trip last out and can move up from that race with better racing luck. If he can regain the form he had in New York last year, he has a shot today… #2 Walk Up Music (3-1) has only raced once in the last year, but this trainer/Jockey combo must be respected.
