Running Aces has a 10-race card schedule for tonight. The 0.50 Late Pick 4 starts in Race 7. The sequence has a $5,000 guaranteed pool, and it will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
1-He Grins Again (3-1)-Roland lands on this Plano entry and should make the most of this starting spot to work a ground saving journey. Has one move and needs to use it at the right time to post the 1st win of the meet.
6-Urkillinmesmalls (8-1)-Looking for a better finish in the 2nd start at this level. Competitive 4-year-old should offer a solid price.
6-Saddle Up (5/2)-Shipping up to Aces has done wonders for this 4-year-old as he has notched 3 wins and a 2nd place finish in 4 starts. Back in at the same class looking to start another winning streak.
7-Caliber (9/5)-Plano got the top versus this kind last week and kept the pedal to the floor to draw off by 5 1/2 lengths in 150.4. Won't offer any value but is a main player.
1-Hoo Nien A (5-1)-Risky play because of breaking issues but if Longo can keep this 10-year-old in line it could be picture time. This is a soft spot and should offer a square price
2-Hay Hay Alright (8-1)-Draws inside and offers a nice price. Lackey can keep this 7-year-old in striking range and work an efficient trip.
5-Its a Marcs World (3-1)-Has won 10 of 17 at Aces and now makes its 2nd start for Nick Roland. Looking for a more aggressive steer. Should be racing near the top of the stack with this post draw.
1-Allmyx'sliventexas (5-1)-Recent form has been dull but now drops to a spot to shine. Roland should be out and rolling looking to make every call a winning one.
8-Bombay Hanover (4-1)-Beat this kind in its Aces debut on 5-17. Should relish the drop and the post draw helps the price.
