Best bet: Race 4, No. 6 Bo Vuk (5-2)

Bo Vuk has been in top form since his early October comeback and should love the added distance he gets today for trainer Robert Vukelic. Jockey Steve Hamilton has been up for his two wins and the second-place effort last out when he had to rally five-wide.

Day maker: Race 8, No. 6 Shes Dynomite (6-1)

Shes Dynomite has been loving the Laurel turf in her last three races and is well spotted today for trainer Charles J. Hadry, Jr. to keep her top form against a nice bunch of fillies and mares first-level allowance runners.
