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

Race #3 Picks:  10-8-2-3

Race #4 Picks: 2-1-3-4

Race #5 Picks: 7-5-8-6

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

In this allowance/optional claiming race for two-year-olds at one mile, #5 Didinger (1-1) was running well at Saratoga and Parx and broke through last time to win a maiden special weight by thirteen lengths. Ran second to Tuskegee Airmen two back, who went on to win the Rocky Run Stakes here at Delaware.  This colt has superior speed figures and should be able to handle this field. #1 Fun Lovin Criminal (3-1) has been facing tougher at Laurel and had trouble in last and got off to a poor start. Coming back after eight days and we think he will run well today. #2 We Dont Need Roads (4-1) had all three of his races taken off the turf, but has run pretty well. #3 Love Me Not (6-1) is adding blinkers and moving back to dirt after two turf tries.

Race #7 Picks: 2-5-1A-6

In this $44,000 allowance race for fillies and mare N2L at one mile, #2 Carroll Girl (9-5) has been a beaten favorite in her last two at Parx but will be facing less tough competition at Delaware. If she can repeat any of her recent races, it should be good enough to beat this field. #5 Focus (5-2) won a maiden race in the mud after it was taken off the turf in last. If she can repeat that effort on a fast track, she will be in the mix.  #1A Argentina Girl (8-1) is making her debut at Delaware after running at Parx in state-bred races. She has shown some speed and could get into the exotics.  #6 Vodkatini (7-2) is moving back to dirt after showing early speed on the grass.

Race #8 Picks: 2-7-4-1
