Monday's 1st race (5:25pm ET) from Presque Isle Downs is a $36,000 entry level Allowance heat for PA-bred 3-year-olds and up dashing five and one-half furlongs on Tapeta footing.
#4 Outlaw Kelly (4-1) easily captured both of his local starts against lesser foes this year. He was all over tepid fractions at 6.5f last time and scored using stalk and pounce tactics at this distance May 23. He hails from a profitable outfit and will probably try to pounce on these from midpack.
#2 Big Royalblackjack (5-1) dusted local state bred maidens May 29 and ended up a troubled 3rd in his first start vs. winners last time. The versatile sort has fine connections in his corner and should offer value under sharp sprint rider Erick Rodriguez.
$18 to win #4
$6 Exacta Box 2-4
