Best Bet ( 25 - 40 / $104.80): ROCK HOLLYWOOD (5th)

Spot Play: JESSE HILL (3rd)


Race 1

(4) MACIE RAE has proven to be the best so far outgaming her opponents; short price.  (1) SAY NO MO filly has a big burst of speed if she can stay trotting.  (2) BAILEY'S WISH has been on the improve and will be sitting a perfect trip.

Race 2

(3) JOYFUL ROCK filly showed big-time potential in her debut and should show good improvement.  (5) GIRLS HUNT TOO makes her first lifetime start off two nice qualifiers; threat.  (8) DUNESIDE PERTTIE filly closed up nicely last out and looks to be a threat with some racing luck.

Race 3

(6) JESSE HILL broke last start after coming up empty the start prior, however the Indiana bred has ability when right.  (7) OMYGOODNESS mare gets sent out for a hot barn and makes her second start back off a long layoff.  (8) ACT OF VALOR well bred trotter has the most upside in the race but could need a start knowing the connections.

Race 4

(8) WATCHBELLEPACE filly has been racing gamely against much better.  A similar effort puts the 3-year-old in the winner's circle.  (9) MY GIRL PIPPA also faces an easier group and could be one of few threats to the top choice.  (2) MEGYN HOTSPUR flashed ability before the time off and gets sent out for a trainer that has them ready when they hit the track.

Race 5

(1) ROCK HOLLYWOOD gelding put in a super effort first start back off a long layoff and will be tough to beat with any improvement.  (5) AMEN AMEN five-year-old trotter also needed his last start and finished his mile full of trot.  (7) CARDINAL WIND faces older but has flashed some closing ability.

Race 6

In a wide open and tough race to handicap (5) MEAN JD MUSTARD could be sitting on a better effort third start back at a price.  (8) SHOOTINFORTHESTARS had a really tough trip last out and things could be different with some racing luck.  (6) ITSALLABOUTTONIGHT has just been racing evenly; command price.

Race 7

In another tough race to gauge (5) VIN would fly past everybody late if he minded his manners which is a big if.  (7) CLASS STAR raced well being used multiple times last start; threat.  (4) MR MUSCLEMANIA has a big burst of speed and is versatile for a provisional driver.

Race 8

(5) ACT OF MAGIC has been unstoppable at this level; fires late.  (1) KITTY O'BRIEN is exclusively a back-runner who needs some pace to chase and a live outer flow for her best chance.  (6) CARNOUSTIE was once a lot better than these but has not been sharp lately; use underneath.

Race 9

(4) CASINO COMP probably has the most ability in the race but the driver is the question mark.  (1) CAMS SAHBRA has been dreadful this year but has put in some big efforts from time to time in the past.  The pacer gets the rail and a suspect field to try his luck.  (5) SUSAN SARANDUNE just missed last out to the top choice and will look to get some separation early.
