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

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

Race #4 Picks: 2-7-6-4

Race #5 Picks: 3-6-1A-2

Race #6 Picks: 1-2-5-3

In this $44,000 allowance race for N3L at 6 furlongs, #1 Little Vic (2-1) runs good races when he isn’t facing graded stakes competition. He topped out with a 91 speed figure at Monmouth in May when he drew off. A repeat of that race should put him over the top. #2 A Dangerous Guy (3-1) has run a string of good races at Parx. He beat next-out winner Spikezone two back and fits very well with this group.  #5 Spikezone (8-5) exploded for an 8 ¼ length victory in last, running an 88 speed figure. He has been working fast since that race and is a contender. #3 One Whirlwind Ride (10-1) has run some good races at Monmouth and could figure into the exotics.

Race #7 Picks: 1-5-3-4

In this first-level allowance/optional claiming race at one mile, #1 Bumperdoo (6-1) is undefeated at Delaware Park with three wins in three tries. He ran poorly at Laurel in his last, but we look for him to rebound now that he is back on the Delaware surface. #5 Trululu (6-1) ran well to win his debut race, but didn’t take to the slop in his next outing.He should be running on a dry track today, and this isn’t a strong field. Any improvement will put him right in the mix. #3 Stefano (3-1) had some good route races at Monmouth and has been working well. Fits with this group. #4 Fole’s Notion (15-1) woke up last time out when the race was taken off the turf. He is inconsistent but may be peaking in his form cycle.

Race #8 Picks: 7-5-4-1
