Race 1

(8) LET'S NOT DWELL well bred colt has some upside and should be primed for a better effort third start back off the layoff.  (7) JM'S DOUBLE TERROR faced a much better bunch last out and put in a good mile.  (4) TEE ROY picks up a decent driver change and looks to have some ability.

Race 2

(5) TIME OUTA JAIL makes his first start back for proven connections off an excellent qualifier.  (6) MAYFAIR SOPHIE mare can score against this bunch if she stays trotting.  (7) MY FUNKY FARKLE has been much improved on the year and can hit the ticket with a smooth trip.

Race 3

(7) JACKSON'S IMAGE nice-looking Indiana bred pacer has tons of potential and is one of few threats in the race.  (1) OFFICIALLY YOURS picks up the top driver with the best post off a huge effort; threat.  (3) SHIFTTANEXTGEAR has started to put it together and is moving in the right direction.

Race 4

(5) IAM BONASERA needs a good setup but is a threat to sweep past late.  (3) FIRSTCLASSALLTHWAY has been razor sharp and could offer value in an evenly matched race.  (4) FORT SILKY will look to make it three straight; fires early.

Race 5

(4) SOUTHERN GIRL well-bred filly was far back early before ripping home showing a big burst of speed in her first lifetime start.  (1) SPORTY PROJECT filly raced greenly in her debut but looks to have a big engine.   (1a) RAVISHING IMAGE filly makes her sophomore debut off a nice qualifier; threat.

Race 6

(5) JUSTICE JET put in a huge effort off a month layoff last out.  A similar mile to that and he's untouchable.  (7) CELEBRITY HERCULES has been much better racing forwardly placed; fires early.  (6) FOX VALLEY VETO has been second in four straight starts; use underneath.

Race 7

(1) THE DOE filly has really started to learn to be a race horse in recent starts.  (3) LA DIABLA probably has the most upside in the race and looks to be ready off the bench showing a nice qualifier.  (8) DUNESIDE PERTTIE has been much better in a new barn and should be tighter second start off the layoff.

Race 8

(5) BLACKJACK RIVNDEL raced tenaciously last out never giving up and will be looking to take no prisoners; fires early.  (1) ARLO GRAM just missed to the top choice last out and looks to be in line for an ideal trip.  (4) HOLY MCMOSES has two wins in his last sixty-five starts; use underneath.

Race 9

(1) SCARLET N SILK mare circled a good group off a slow middle half last out.  The 4-year-old pacer takes on the boys but a good setup puts her in the mix; drivers choice.   (8) FLYING ROCKET has been competitive at this level and should offer a nice price.  (7) COTTON EYED JOE hasn't been able to get over the hump but has pulled off big upsets in the past.

Race 10

In a tough race to gauge (3) EMPLOYESS GO WILD raced super last out coming first over against a good horse.  (4) BLOOMING GENIUS four-year-old pacer makes his second start back but was short and could need another week before he's primed; command a price.  (6) TOUCH THE ROCK has just been racing evenly but does drop back down in class.

Race 11

(7) WHY ASK WHY was the driver's choice and looks to be very talented.  (9) LITTLE HANK will offer a good price with a suspect pilot and just needs a smooth trip for a chance to hit the board.  (3) WALKING TALL has not been able to pace with this group; use underneath.

Race 12

(5) CAM B ZIPPER is on fire right now and anything similar to his last two efforts makes it three in a row.  (1) REAL OR MAGIC was unable to pace with the top choice a few back but is just now back in racing shape and comes into the race off a confidence building win.  (4) PREEMPTIVE BID was the driver's choice but did make a nasty break last week; command a price.
