I don't have a lot of time until I head out to Churchill this morning, but below you can find the link to today's scratches and changes:

Churchill Downs Changes

With that out of the way, here's a quick rundown of the direction I think I'm going in today's races.  Good luck to everyone out there, I hope you cash a big one at some point during the day.

Juvenile Turf: I've been waffling a lot on this race but I might take a stab with the 20/1 shot, Deciphering Dreams as a long-shot play.  

Sprint: Lots of different ways to go in this race but I like Warrior's Reward and Riley Tucker on top and perhaps Smiling Tiger to get a piece of it along the way.

Turf Sprint: Silver Timber is the standout, to me, but I'll also have my eye on Stradivinsky.

Juvenile: I like Rouge Romance at a price.

Mile: It's Goldikova's world, we all just live in it.  However, I've been impressed enough with Gio Ponti (provided his odds drift a bit) that I'm going to make a small play to try and upset the heavy favorite.  It's probably a loss but I'm gonna try anyway.  

Dirt Mile: I like three in this race: Here Comes Ben, Theskyhasnolimit and Tizway.  I just need to figure out how to play them all.

Turf: With what happened to Midday yesterday I'm less bullish on the Euros this year.  Al Khali will probably be my value play in this spot, with some action going towards Dangerous Midge, as well.

Classic: Still think the race sets up best for Blame and Zenyatta but will have to wait for the will-pays to figure out how I'm going to ultimately attack this race.

Good luck, everyone!
