Race #5 Picks: 4-8-12-11

Race #6 Picks: 1-6-4-7

In this allowance/optional claiming race for N2X at 5 ½ furlongs, #1 Mojovation (6-5) has experience and has been facing tough completion at Parx. His speed figures are very competitive and he looks tough in this spot. He will need to get out of the gate quickly to not get too far behind the speed horses in this 5 ½ furlong sprint. #6 Shacks Way (9-2) lost an Iron at the start in last after winning four-in-a-row. He looks very solid in this spot. #4 Omaha Red (3-1) was running well at Hawthorne before shipping to Delaware. This 3YO may have room for further improvement and looks like a competitor here. #7 Where Paradise Lay (8-1) has the speed to get a minor award with this group.

Race #7 Picks: 3-1A-2-10

In this allowance/optional claiming race at 1 1/16 miles on the turf, #3 Summer to Remember (5-2) was running well in New York and now shifts into Tim Kreiser’s Penn National barn. He has shown he can win at this level, and the competition is usually tougher in New York. He looks to have a class edge over this field. #1A Angelus Warrior (5-1) ran well at this level in last. Should improve in second back after a long layoff. #2 J Beresford Tipton (9-2) has shown some talent and has been gelded since his last race. Trainer Arnaud Delacour wins at a 21% clip for a $2.43 ROI when coming back from a 61-180-day layoff in 48 attempts. #10 USS Constitution (5-1) has been competitive at this level and should be considered.

Race #8 Picks: 1-3-5-2
