** Best Bet Officiating had a crippling first start and was 4-5 when wide in his second race. The son of Blame has vastly improved in his last two starts. He recently had two solid workouts and a switch to Jose Lezcano should put him in the circle today.

 * Best Value Amistad broke his maiden two back on turf going shorter at 6/1. In his latest start he finished 6th five lengths behind the winner at 45/1. Today the 5 year-old gelding is stretching out, drops noticeably and gets a hot jockey.

Cumulative Record (as of JAN 3): Last week 13-for-35    ROI: $200 wagered; $420 return
