1. OPEN PAGE had run into money after a long period in last run, horse is showing fine speed in tracks but goes at top weight with a weak rider, has to be considered after seeing the trend of long shots yesterday.HOSTESS has been shown a couple of gates, is more of a sprinter, but handicap is favorable. IMPERIAL VERSE can race well if fit, has not been worked much. LOVELY DANCER impressed in gates and has pleased in mornings. ACTIVE GREY has picked up form and the scheming trainer has no option but to try him. WOODRIDGE has failed twice as a favorite, has been sharpened up well.
2. PRECIOUS GLITTER does not impress at top weight.OYE COME VA has a slightly better rookie to improve upon. SCORCHING had run a fine leading race and was nabbed at the post, has a proper rider today.
