By Mike Paradise

  FOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 27 AT MAYWOOD-

Best Bet: Mr. Matlock (8th race)

First Post 7:30 pm

FIRST: PACE, COND, NW 1 OR 2 RACES, PURSE $3,700:

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)  ODDS  LAST 3

4  Evergreen Artist, R. Warren  2-1  *1 2 2

5  L-Thisishowweroll, Leonard  5-2  4 8 5

1  J B’s Hero, Smolin  4-1  2 5 7

6  +Every Advantage, Anderson  5-1  1 8 4

7  L+No More Terror, T. Warren  6-1  9 3 *3

3  AJ’s Prince. Durante  10-1  3 3 10

2  L!Pondas Cutelildude, Carpenter  15-1  6 8 9

EVERGREEN ARTIST could make the front again and win right back. THISISHOWWEROLL comes off a wide mile. Casey got him to the top last time he drove him and might again.  J B’S HERO just missed and another trip on or near the front looks likely.

SECOND: PACE, COND/CLMG $7,000, NW 1 OR 2 RACES, F & M, PURSE $2,500:

1  L-Sandy Dune, P. Curtin  5-2  4 2 6

6  Fancy’s Falooshe, Bell  3-1  4 7 4

7  Hadley Drama Queen, Rath  5-1  5 5 x

2  !Skwway Clara, Carpenter  6-1  10 8 8

8  Imajean Rocks, Smolin  6-1  5 3 10

4  +Playforyourdreams, Husted  6-1  1 5 5

5  L-She’s A Gem, T. Curtin  15-1  5 6 9

3  AJ’s Princess, Durante  15-1  6 5 6

SANDY DUNE could be racing closer to the front and maybe come away with her maiden win. FANCY’S FALOOSHE may have dropped down to a winning spot in her Maywood bow. HADLEY DRAMA QUEEN can be better after a needed start.

THIRD: PACE, COND/CLMG $7,000, NW 1 O2 2 RACES, F & M, PURSE $2,500:

7  L+Baby Dee, Leonard  9-2  4 4 1

5  L-Green Valey, P. Curtin  5-2  *2 2 4

4  Our Miss Leah, T. Warren  3-1  5 1 2

3  L-No Gun No Fun, Smolin  7-2  3 7 6

2  Simply Burbon, L. Finn  6-1  4 4 3

1  !Tequila Babe, Oosting  6-1  5 8 3

6  L-Elusive Return, T. Curtin  20-1  7 8 6

BABY DEE kept sharp at the fairs. Freshman handled this oval earlier. GREEN VALEY could get to the top in better shape and not be collared. OUR MISS LEAH didn’t leave last time but she may be going out tonight. Consider.

FOURTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 6, PURSE $3,000:

1  !Bohemia, Oosting  5-2  2 2 6

2  +Dakota Roadster, Smolin  3-1  1 7 6

4  L-I Bizel The Shizel, T. Warren  7-2  4 5 6

3  L-Shootingforthestars, Leonard  6-1  2 5 6

6  L-R Duneshine, R. Warren  6-1  6 7 7

7  L+BC’s Chief, Carpenter  6-1  2 7 2

5  L-Conzo, Anderson  12-1  3 4 *5

BOHEMIA fits well inside with the drop if right. Scratched lame 3 weeks ago nevertheless Oosting took him over the No. 4 horse.  DAKOTA ROADSTER was game winner who dropped in with a price tag and isn’t in much tougher. I BIZEL THE SHIZEL looks capable of rallying past if things go his way.

FIFTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, F & M, PURSE $3,100:

1  L+Dakota Run, Leonard  5-2  1 *2 3

5  Viva Venturi, R. Warren  3-1  8 3 1

4  L+Bonjour Madam, T. Curtin  4-1  3 3 2

3  The Doe, Smolin  9-2  6 2 2

7  L-Flashy Dune, Oosting  6-1  5 3 3

6  L+Uneek Venturi, R. Warren  8-1  2 3 2

8  L-Towne Believer, P. Curtin  20-1  4 6 7

2  L-Hip Shaken Mama, T. Warren  20-1  5 4 7

DAKOTA RUN steps up however filly won with authority and is in line for another good trip. VIVA VENTURI might be a flat mile away from going all the way. BONJOUR MADAM is a threat to get up in time at maybe fair value.

SIXTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, ICF, PURSE $2,750:

1  L-Inxpressiblebeauty, Leonard  7-2  4 *1 2

7  L-Walkinthemoonlite, T. Warren  3-1  1 2 3

3  Dakota Snow, Oosting  4-1  3 5 3

5  LL-Perfectly Clear, Husted  9-2  4 1 7

4  L-Wild Berry Muffler, Smolin  6-1  2 6 6

2  L+Primrose Path, Carpenter  6-1  1 3 7

6  Stephie Clay, T. Curtin  8-1  4 3 1

INXPRESSIBLEBEAUTY moves inside. He may have to be sharp enough to get it done first up. WALKINTHEMOONLITE moves to the outside but may seek and get a spot up-close. DAKOTA SNOW could get another journey near the front.

SEVENTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, F & M, PURSE $2,900:

6  L-Full Of Grace, Leonard  3-1  *2 *7 *1

5  L-Rockin Sockem, R. Warren  7-2  1 4 2

4  L-Lucy Flew, Oosting  5-2  1 5 5

8  Always Reese, Husted  4-1  *4 *1 *2

7  L-Getoutthewayanmove, Carpenter  10-1  2 6 6

3  L-Sand In My Bikini, T. Warren  12-1  3 8 9

2  L-Buckeye Dragonlady, T. Curtin  15-1  2 6 6

1  L-Summer Town, L. Finn  25-1  6 6 8

9  L-Jenna W Rivndel, Anderson  30-1  7 8 10

FULL OF GRACE reunited with Casey who had a pair of front-end wins in this class with her. ROCKIN SOCKEM has also fared well at this level and may also be heading out. LUCKY FLEW took advantage of a great trip. Recent Lasix user is another major threat in here.

EIGHTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, PURSE $2,900:

9  Mr. Matlock, Smolin  9-5  *1 5 *1

1  Tornado Henry, Husted  7-2  2 4 4

5  Motorin Matt, R. Warren  4-1  4 *3 3

8  L-Catch The Wave, Oosting  5-1  4 6 *4

3  Jm’s Double Terror, Rath  12-1  5 4 5

6  Sonny Dean, Leonard  12-1  5 8 2

2  Diamond Desire Ivy, RS Finn  12-1  3 8 6

4  Mr. Hans, P. Curtin  20-1  6 6 5

7  L-Lestrade Hanover, T. Warren  30-1  7 7 7

MR. MATLOCK starts behind a contender and could make it four in a row at Maywood. TORNADO HENRY can get an easier trip from here and may avenge his losses to the above.  MOTORIN MATT could come on a get into the gimmicks.

NINTH: PACE, COND, NW $1,000 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $2,750:

1  L-Whistle Pig, Leonard  5-2  5 8 *7

2  L-Makena Cat, Carpenter  3-1  *3 *3 8

7  L-Jovanna, R. Warren  9-2  5 2 9

8 L-Alaughandasmile, T. Warren  6-1  7 2 6

5  L!The Bruzilian Blur, Anderson  6-1  4 *6 3

4  L!Sister’s Keeper, T. Curtin  8-1  6 6 6

3  L-Dolly Dune, L. Finn  8-1  4 4 5

6  L-Zumba, Oosting  20-1  6 5 6

WHISTLE PIG raced improved. Her back class may tell this time. MAKENA CAT failed first over as a heavy favorite and may make amends tonight. JOVANNA is overdue. She’s a possibility to get up in time.

TENTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, F & M, PURSE $2,600:

2  L-Sun Dream, T. Warren  5-2  *5 3 1

1  L-I Don’t Rember, Oosting  3-1  1 *5 7

7  Val’s Way, Smolin  5-1  *5 4 *1

3  L-Odds On Dominica, Anderson  6-1  3 6 8

4  L-Ataway Samantha, Leonard  8-1  4 *1 7

8  L-Cee Cee’s Delight, Carpenter  8-1  2 1 7

6  L-Donmesswithangel, R. Warren  10-1  5 4 2

9  L-Peacelovepace, P. Curtin  12-1  3 *1 7

5  L-E R Violet, T. Warren  8-1  4 *1 7

SUN DREAM sheds 8-hole for the 2-slot where he could get command and keep it. I DON’T REMBER was a strong three-wide winner and may be a well-timed move away from repeat. VAL’S WAY comes off a wide mile. Better trip makes her threat.
