Race 1

(1a) BLACKJACK RIVNDEL should offer the better price of the few contenders in the race; driver's choice.  (2) FINNTASTIC lightly raced pacer put in a career best effort last out just missing.  (4) HARLEY J three-year-old is 0 for the year but has been close in recent starts.

Race 2

(1) AGENT BOOTH will offer a big price and just needs some racing luck from the rail to have a shot late.   (6) BANDS ALEXIS has been a new horse for the current connections; short price.  (3) A LOCAL BAND gelding trotter has been improved in his last few but would need more to hit the top spot.

Race 3

(7) OUR MISS LILY mare will look to make it five wins and a second in six recent starts at this level.  (4) SUN DREAM mare hasn't been the same this year but can crank it up at times.  (6) KITTY O'BRIEN mare gets her regular pilot back but needs a good setup; fires late.

Race 4

(1) CHIPPER tried a change of tactics last out.  The pacer tired late and looks to be better coming from off the pace.  (3) SPEED RACER raced gamely first start back off a long layoff and should have more to offer.  (8) BEN N AL has been extremely good since shipping in from out east and was the driver's choice.

Race 5

(3) BLUE GEM was on a roll prior to the flat tire.  The pacing mare gets sent out for a recent hot trainer.  (2) MEET ME TONIGHT filly was pressed hard last out and still drew off nicely.  (5) CASINO COMP needed her last start and has beaten similar on the year.

Race 6

(8) SS TOMMY TURNER has a lot of question marks but could be the sleeper in the race off bad-looking lines.  However the recent qualifier was much improved.  (1) HURRICANE FINALE gelding could be in line for a nice trip up close.  (2) LD'S DASH doesn't win often but is capable of a big burst from time to time.

Race 7

In a tough race to gauge (5) LOVINMESTRAIGHT gets sent out for connections tough to leave off the top spot.  (8) IF I DIDNT DREAM filly has shown some ability but will need to find a way into the race; fires late.  (9) PERFECTLY CLEAR filly will offer a big price and is capable of better.

Race 8

(9) SPEEDY ALBER takes a significant drop in class and just needs a trouble-free trip to be right there.  (1) BAGS FOR ALL filly gets sent out for capable connections and could threaten late with a good setup.  (10) NESSIE'S BOY also drops in class and could be the sleeper in the race at a price.

Race 9

(4) INDIAN CREEK KATIE owns only one win on the year but it was at this level.  The pacer is versatile and could be the main danger late with a good set up.  (7) EARTHLY DESIRE finds a much easier field than last out; threat.  (1) WESTERN BOUDOIR mare has been sharp in her last two and gets the best post.
