An Expert Analysis of the Scarborough Downs Card

Thursday August 24 - Post Time 4:30 PM!

Race One ... AMAZING QUEST makes his first start for new connections following the recent $3K fairgrounds claim - Drops into the NW's bracket and gains the Campbell Call to return immediate dividends ... EXPERT HANOVER drops back down to the NW's division of the bottom claiming class after a gallant attempt versus optional $5K sorts - Gains the rail and does possess the gate speed to take full advantage of that happenstance ... SHAM'S BIG GUY threw in a pretty game effort versus a rather sharp bunch in last - Drops down to the cellar level tonight ... 2-1-5

Race Two ... FIFTY SPENDER has absolutely thrived since venturing in from that NY circuit and appears to have hit her best stride in recent appearances - Makes the quick turnaround once again tonight but she has been an amazing money making machine during this streak ... CAMTIZZY draws horribly tonight but does come with the proven ability to overcome the outside post positions - Prick up your ears if Campbell elects to steer over the 1,4,6 & 7 ... PLAYMATE INTERLUDE draws well and bids to build upon that solid third place showing in last ... 4-8-3

Race Three ... VICTORY TAX benefits from the also eligible clause as he drops down slightly in company - Classy campaigner faded in the Skow-town mud in last but that line appears to be a mere aberration ... TANGO PIRATE recovered from the early misstep to grab a top-three placing in last - This trotter may well be the fleetest to be found on this program page right now ... UNCLE FREDDIE rallied smartly with the trainer in the seat last week - Prick up your ears if Campbell elects to steer over our top tab ... 6-3-4

Race Four ... SHE'S ALL FINN makes the key second start off the qualifier after just giving way late in a prep mile that featured a 58.3 back-half! - Charts suggest she'll play a swift game of catch-me-if-you-can with these ... BIG BAD ROCK makes his second Scarborough start after getting dissed to the quarter in 27.4 last week - Draws the inside edge of the chief contenders tonight ... VERMILLION BIRD scratched out of a race where she figured heavily last week - Still figures heavily tonight too ... 3-2-5

Race Five ... ELLA BUNDA makes the quick turnaround once again this week but does so boasting extremely keen form - Regains the Campbell Call while realizing rather substantial hidden class relief too ... FORT BRAGG searches for his first seasonal score but has hit the board in 2 of his last 3 starts - May be gearing up for a big effort soon ... KAJA has now hit the board in each of her last 5 starts - She's certainly at a seasonal peak right now ... 2-4-3

Race Six ... ITS A GO retains the level of his last two wins while continuing to flash all that incredible speed and form - We'll keep riding the lightning hot pony all the way to the cashiers windows ... FALCON'S LUKE jumps up in company after getting passed in the mud by a rather nice horse during that recent fairground start - Returns back to the scene of his most recent win tonight ... THE WAY LIFE SHOULD BE sports right now sort of form while drawing the inside edge in this split tonight - Regains the driver who last won with him too ... 6-3-1

Race Seven ... LUIGI drops down to this straight conditioned class event after matching strides with tough optional claiming foes of late - Bids to build upon that deceptively solid performance in last ... FIESTY BARAN now makes his third start of the season and figures to be rounding nicely into form - Capable veteran draws kindly once again this week ... SOME LUCK SOME ROCK returns to the Downs off a successful tour of the NY and Vermont fair circuit - Speedy sort may be well hidden in here ... 3-2-6

Race Eight ... PERSONNEL SPACE benefited from an extremely nifty drive in last as they threaded the needle to get through tight quarters late to grab the win - Retains the level of last week's win and last week's driver too ... MEDOLAND JT appears just as sharp as any entry to be found on this program page and draws handily tonight too - Has now hit the board in 15 of 20 seasonal starts ... THUNDERS TOY never found a way to overcome the outside draw in last but slides in a few notches here - Regains the Campbell Call just for good measure ... 6-3-5
