Race 4




Last time she visited Charles Town, #4 Miss Chamita (5-1) won an allowance nicely. She returns today for the next allowance condition, and the way the race shapes up, with some early speed sorts, should benefit her late-running style. In her prior CT visit, she made a strong rally before encountering traffic and then clipping heels.. Morning line favorite #5 My Flicker (5-2) makes her first visit to CT for leading trainer Farrior; he and Montano are 5-for-12 together. This miss ought to be in the early vanguard… WV-bred #1 Nice n’ Broad (9-2) just missed versus similar in last on a muddy track; she’s 0-for-9 on off tracks, so another good effort could be in the offing today… #2 Determined Truth (3-1) dusted never-two rivals in last and takes the next logical step today….

Race 6


Morning line fave #6 Hot Fudge Sonde (5-2) surged to the lead versus similar in last before gacking it up late. In his third off a four-month break, he could be sitting on a return to his best form, which would get the money here… #7 Remys Showtime (7-2) might be controlling speed here, but the lackadaisical record — just three wins from 27 outings and none in 10 2022 starts — makes him hard to endorse on top… Pretty indifferent outing last time for #1 Happy Years (6-1), but we’re inclined to forgive it and look for a better effort today… The speedy #4 Roll Dem Bones (10-1) figures to be up close early…
