An Expert Analysis of the Scarborough Downs Card

Saturday May 27 - 4:30 Post Time!

Race One ... MIRICLE MAVERICK sped jauntily down the highway when first introduced to driver Drew Campbell last week, posting a brand new lifetime mark in the process - Retains both the level of last week's win and the Campbell Call tonight ... CHECK IS IN THE MAIL doggedly tracked our top tab last week, doing all the work the hard way in a brilliant first over attack - He appears at a lifetime peak right now and draws the inside edge in here too ... MR BO DIDLEY continues to exhibit steadily improving form in each successive start - Wins one soon ... 5-1-3

Race Two ... AINT NO MO benefits greatly from the also eligible tag as he tumbles down the class ladder here - Sharp and speedy sort appears well matched in this grouping ... WISHING YOU WELL is the other notable class dropper to be found on this program page - Figures to lose his regular driver today but there are adequate reserves sitting on the bench in this split ... BUBELEH STONE won for fun while slumming at the MADC level last weekend but should prove more than capable here - He races one level beneath his regular optional claiming class today ... 6-5-2

Race Three ... GEISHA GIRL returns to the raceway today off a tantalizingly close-up speed-tightening trip to the Ridge on Tuesday - Makes the quick turnaround but rejoins a level where she has enjoyed incredible success this season ... KIM'S DAY rejoins a roster for whom she became quite streaky last season - Sharp speedy from at the Ridge is quite evident in those charts ... SIGN OF A DIAMOND benefits handsomely from the also eligible tag while simultaneously making the key 2nd start Lasix - Sharp mare looms large in here ... 3-1-5

Race Four ... DRAGON KING makes the quick turnaround from Wednesday's Queen City appearance - This classy veteran was a rather zippy winner when last seen here at the Downs ... CAMS TRIVIA has not enjoyed the most successful trips in recent starts but he may be a player if he can get away a bit handier from the rail tonight - This well-bred sort is surely fleet enough to contend ... PAN TAYLOR threw in her best effort of the season in last - Bids to build upon it here ... 5-1-4

Race Five ... SIGN TO INVERELL has been rather handily bested in all recent starts but earlier in the season had flashed considerably improved speed and form - Drops all the way down to the bottom conditioned class to regroup tonight ... MCHEARTBREAKER is the other notable class dropper to be found on this program page tonight - She's been holding her own versus tough mares this spring so her credentials recommend her chances ... MR HAPPY PANTS exits colt class competition to battle older more experienced foes in here - That recipe has worked in the past and he's certainly sharp enough right now ... 1-5-3

Race Six ... GO WEST LUCKY CAM bids to build upon that solid runner-up placing in last week's appearance - Could be tough in here if he can grab the early lead ... NATURAL BREEZE drops down in company after encountering 1:56-ish speed in last - Draws well and has been sharp racing fresh off the self this season ... WAKE was the winner in the MADC last weekend as he benefited from the perfect trip scenario - Hopes for much the same tonight ... 5-1-3

Race Seven ... ROCKNROLWILNEVERDIE returns to the raceway off a zippy Queen City score while boasting a tally of 5 wins already this season - This one has yet to miss the board in any 2017 start ... JJS JET draws the inside edge over his chief rivals and is quite competent if left loose on the lead - A win versus these might be considered only the slightest of upsets ... HEDGES LANE always heads to the raceway with his game face on - Sports that perfect 7 for 7 on the board ratio so he's a must play in here ... 5-2-3

Race Eight ... WESTERN drops into the NW's bracket of the bottom claiming class as she makes her first state of Maine appearance - That sharp speed-tightening chart from the Ridge is quite prominent indeed ... FUNNY LENA returns to the raceway off those recent raids on the Ridge - Appears extremely well-spotted in here if our top tab falters ... CARLS GLORY sharp mare draws poorly today but she has yet to miss the board ... 1-5-7
