In this $ 8,000 claiming race for NW2 at one mile #3 Supporting Actor (2-1) ran some decent races at this level in Maryland and has a bullet work on August 21st. He appears to be the best of this field and we have him on top. #7 I Am It (8-1) is taking a class drop and should improve on second back after a layoff. He could run a big one today.  #2 Jarlian (3-1) is back on the dirt where he won, and taking a class drop today. He must be considered.  #5 Tempting the Tiger (4-1) has some speed and could pick up a minor piece of the pie today.

Race #7   Picks:   8-1-4-6

In this starter allowance at about 1 1/16 miles on the turf #8 Uncle Andrew (3-1) has run well against tough competition. He had some trouble in last and could rebound with a big performance today. We have him on top. #1 Unconquered Spirit (4-1) went to the lead in a mile-and-a-half marathon in last but got nipped at the wire. If gets the lead in this race, he may be tough to catch.  #4 D’craziness (10-1) will be running late and if the speed falters, he could get up and win at a price. #6 Atreyu {8-1) has run some big races in Maryland and should be considered.

Race #8   Picks:   2-6-1-7
