Presque Isle Downs - Race #2
#6 Three O One He finished with a little enthusiasm last time out when racing over the local surface for the first time, and the move around two turns should work in his favor here. Playable in a race where the pair to beat both have 16 losses.
#5 King of the Ring He has had plenty of chances, but he's a good fit with these after a trio of local special weight tries. Worth a look at this level locally, but it's tough to get too excited about landing here.
#3 Gold Czar He found the right level with this type, but he is another who is short on excuses at this point in his career who probably won't offer a really appealing price.
Race Summary Three O One might be the right one after turning in a useful local debut last time out, and this one-mile trip here might suit him well at a square price on the rise.
Presque Isle Downs - Race #5
#7 Golden Sweets She didn't show much when sent to post at 23/1 in the debut run last fall, but she brings an interesting worktab with her to this local debut and would seem plenty playable at anything like the 5/1 ML price.
#3 Patti D She might wind up an underlay after settling for underneath slices in consecutive races, but her form fits well with these in a race that doesn't seem to have a whole lot of depth.
#5 Come On Let's Ride Speed is dangerous with her best, but she tends to be a bit dicey late in the lane and be best used in the underneath spots with these.
Race Summary Golden Sweets is probably capable of something better than she showed in her debut run last year, and the hope is that the other listed pair will take enough cash to keep the price playable here.
Presque Isle Downs - Race #7
#1 We the Clouds Gets the slight call in a fun and competitive race, and she'll step up after a couple of really sharp scores in her first two races over the surface. Nothing wrong with having the hot rider up again.
#4 Forgotten Peace She has been so reliable when racing here, and she has some tactical ability and a mild rating gear that might allow her to sit right up on the stretchout pace drawn further outside. Top choice handled here in the two-back run.
#3 Redeem My Heart Her form looks pretty solid with these, and something like her three-back try going long with stakes company would keep her in the frame with these. There's a scenario in which she wins this.
Race Summary We the Clouds was flattered when Forgotten Peace came back to win last out, and 'Clouds has looked really sharp in a couple of local wins since leaving the turf behind at Churchill.
