(4th race) 4 CHURUBUSCO with plenty of speed in this race, it should set up nicely for this stretch runner; 1 OATMAN is the speediest of the speed; 2 LUI LUHUK will be chasing the top one from the start. (8th race) 1 SPRUCE LAKE has won two in a row, and should make it three; 3 STREAK will have to be caught; 11 PREMIUM UNLEADED need much improvement to threaten the top pair. Fair Grounds: (1st race) 7 STRIKE HAPPY has a big chance to never look back; 14 GOANDLEAVEYOUR- MARK had problems in a needed race, a month ago; 12 ESS EL YOU nished rst in her latest race, only to be ed; 3 SECRET is working well for her return to the races. (2nd race) 4 WHEATON HOME was second best when dropped to this level, three weeks ago; 10 PLACID DREAMS won with ease a month ago, when claimed from a top trainer, by a trainer that had this horse earlier in the year; 5 ESPOOF should be in a pace battle with the top one from the gate. (4th race) 1 FAST CITY GIRL sharp trainer prepped this one at Delta Downs, now goes for the big money while facing Louisiana breds; 13 ALL TOO SOLID all three of her races have been good; 9 CURLEY KIM both of her races have been promising.
