Race 1

(3) TINY MITE gets a much better pilot and has been racing gamely.  (2) BIG BAD BOB makes his third start of the year and looks to be heading in the right direction.  (5) SWAN LIFE TO LIVE would be a threat if the filly stays trotting.

Race 2

(2) FEELNLIKEAROCKSTAR has the look of a good one coming off a huge effort.  (2a) MAJOR ED flashed some ability before the miscue last out.  (7) CASEY AT BAT has a tough post to overcome and is probably best used underneath.

Race 3

(6) DAVE'S BID gets sent out for red hot connections and has the look of a winner last out.  (7) BEACH'S NICK finds a very weak field besides the top choice.  (5) BELL VALLEY ART would need the top choice to come up empty to hit the top spot.

Race 4

(1) SLOANE ELISE faces older, but looks to have room for improvement off an impressive victory.  (2) STONEBRIDGE ULTIMO has some ability if the 4-year-old can stay trotting with a provisional driver.  (8) FOX VALLEY SKYLAR could have some new found confidence breaking her maiden at Springfield after 29 tries.  The 3-year-old will be blasting early.

Race 5

(10) PARKLANE SCOOTER was a new horse last out for new connections and is a threat to upset in a suspect field.  (5) ARLO GRAM has been slowly progressing, shaving time off his miles with each start.  (9) DUNESIDES SON comes off a nice qualifier but needs a lot of luck with an inexperienced pilot.

Race 6

(5) READY faces a much softer bunch than his last few races; big chance.  (3) MEAN JD MUSTARD has been off a month but was racing gamely prior to the downtime.  (1) CHILLINONADIRTROAD has shown good improvement in his last few starts; threat.

Race 7

(9) BC'S FANCY DANCER went from being sharp to empty in her last two.  The filly owns the best win time in the field on the year.  (5) MEGYN HOTSPUR seems to have ability but always lacks pop late.  The 3-year-old finds a soft field and should be considered a threat.  (7) PERFECTLY CLEAR made a good move at Springfield last start and could use a fast pace up front to close into.

Race 8

In a field with few contenders, (1) OSAGE gets an intriguing morning line while dropping to the bottom level.  (3) KITTY O'BRIEN can't pace through the turns which has really hurt her chances into slow fractions.  (2) KENDYL will be taking heavy tote action but has yet to score a victory for the new connections.

Race 9

(7) LOVERS HOLIDAY has yet to fire on the year but is capable of going on a good streak.  (2) BLUE GEM has been a major player in this barn at this level; threat.  (10) ONE LOUD DING could offer a big price and is capable coming off a big effort.
