Horse of the Night

ATOMIC ART (13TH) : Turned in a very solid effort in defeat last time out as he wound up finishing third after the tough first over journey. He had won his two previous starts in come from behind fashion but with the inside draw tonight Iím hoping heíll be able to show a bit more gate speed. If he can flash the early foot he should wind up landing in a perfect spot and that should get him back on the winning track.

Keep an Eye On These

CS EYE (5TH) : Ships over from Hoosier after tiring late in his last start. It looks like a switch to the smaller oval could help this youngster and from the inside I would expect him to be on or near the lead every step of the way.
FEEL LIKE DANCING (7TH) : 6 figure winner in 2013 looks to be in a perfect spot to get her second win of the 2014 season. She gets major post relief and sheís in soft here which is going to make her tough to collar.
FIRSTCLASSALLTHWAY (10TH) : Talented gelding was in a little too tough in that last start at Balmoral. He drops and returns to Maywood which proved to be a winning move two starts back so letís give him the call in here.


Backstretch Info

RAGING CAM (12TH) : Long overdue for that first win of the 2013 season and this looks like an absolutely perfect spot to get rid of the goose-egg. He chased a very tough winner in the slop last time out and that effort seemed to indicate that he may be rounding into a winning effort. He flashed good speed before giving way late two starts back and with the inside draw I would expect him to be in command of things right from the word go tonight. If he can catch a breather somewhere along the way he could be tough to collar.
