With Del Mar kicking off its eight-week stand and Monmouth Park holding its signature card of the summer on Saturday, it's a bountiful weekend of stakes action across North America. 

Horseplayers have their work cut out preparing for all that is on offer. To aid in that process, one option is the time-tested, data driven handicapping product Super Screener developed by author Mike Shutty. 

This week's Super Screener offers a big dose of the stakes-laced card at Monmouth with in-depth analysis and wagering strategies for the Matchmaker (G3), Molly Pritcher (G3), United Nations (G1) and the featured $1 million Haskell (G1) for 3-year-olds. 

The Haskell drew a field of eight led by California invader Taiba for Bob Baffert, the slight 7-5 morning-line favorite, and undefeated Jack Christopher (3-2) for trainer Chad Brown. 

While Taiba is rated as Super Screener's "top win contender," it gives a big chance to White Abarrio (5-1) rallying for the upset under Joel Rosario. 

White Abarrio, winner of the Florida Derby (G1), was never a factor when checking in 16th in the Kentucky Derby. He returned to be a good second behind Tawny Port in the Ohio Derby (G3) on June 25 for trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. 

Super Screener noted of White Abarrio, "no other horse in the Kentucky Derby covered more ground than this one thanks to traveling very wide throughout...This colt has been well managed with plenty of spacing between races and he comes into this affair 2nd off the 7-week layoff."

Super Screener contends White Abarrio could benefit from what's expected to be a lively pace.

"Rosario will take the reins and he'll patiently keep this presser type far enough off the early heat so as not to get consumed by it, but close enough to be positioned for a strong late run after reserving energy," Super Screener concludes. 

In addition to the stakes-action from Monmouth Park, Super Screener also takes deep dives into the Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) at Saratoga featuring Clairiere and Malathaat, San Clemente (G2) at Del Mar, plus offers suggested plays for the late Pick 4 at Monmouth Park.
