Feb 9th..... post 5, strong bias to those making the front. Jordies Hope and Dangerous Precedent took huge advantage of that.

Feb 10th....none
Feb 6 controlled the front and won 4 races
-3rd favorite has not won a race last 3 cards. 
-race 6 due for a longshot, likely the 4th or 5th fave 
-post 2, no wins last 2 cards 
-post 5 and 6 very good this month, post 4 worst percentage post this month
