- In this second-level allowance/optional claiming race #7 Belle Tapisserie (4-1) was running very well until his last race, out of which trainer Kieron Magee reclaimed him. Magee was willing to pay $35,000 to get this horse back, and he knows how to get the best out of this gelding. We have him on top today. #6 Heart Rhythm (5-2) has been running well in recent races and has good speed figures at Parx. This will be Michel Pino’s first starter at Delaware this meet and he has a 24% winning percentage at Delaware in recent years. He looks dangerous here. #3 D’ Rapper (8-1) has run some big speed figures at Churchill Downs and Jamie Ness is 34% on first after a claim. This gelding has been working well and wouldn’t be a shocker if he pulled off an upset today. #2 Redeem Eddie (7-2) has speed and has been working well including a bullet work on June 13th. He has a shot today.
- Race 7: 11-2-12-7
- Race 8: 7-4-1-6
- In this $38,000 maiden special weight at 5 furlongs for Delaware Certified two-year-old maidens we are looking at #7 Rustys Gfivefifty (5-1). His breeding seems like he may want to run early, and Claudio Gonzalez is 24% with first-time starters. He was working fast in June and has now backed off and we like the workout pattern. We have this colt on top. #4 Crabs N Beer (4-1) is another first-time starter and he’s been working well at Timonium. Jamie Ness is 21% with debut runners and this colt should be considered. #1 Addicted to Chaos (3-1) closed late to finish second in his debut. That experience should help him run a better race today. A possibility. #6 Buster Bruno (8-1) has been working well at Monmouth and looks like an interesting longshot play.
- Race 9: 7-3-1-4
