12/5: 5w, no bias

EVIL URGES - Trotter had post 10 and finished strongly for the place

 

MONTICELLO

12/5: 5w, no bias, off track

12/4: 6w, no bias, 4 winners rallied from well off the pace

12/3: 9w, ++ speed

DOLLY LITTLE GUN*** - Left from post 6 and was parked the mile without cover pressing the bias-aided odds-on frontrunner and held well to be 2nd best

CANNAE ROCKY - Had post 8, left, tucked, went first over and drew clear sharply

 

DOVER

12/5: 7w, + speed

12/4: 6w, no bias

12/3: 4w, no bias

MIC MAC BEAU*** - Was on the move early and paced a :55 middle-half, opened up a few lengths on the field but weakened late in a solid effort

COOPERS BEACH - Charged up first over to press a :27 2/5 third quarter and just missed in a game effort

ALLSTAR SHARK - Was first over from post 6 pressing a :27 third quarter, didn't tire that badly

DI MANGGIO - Trotter suffered broken equipment which cost him several lengths at the start, gained ground steadily; price factor with better post or a possible longshot winner off a drop

 

NORTHFIELD

12/4: 9w, + speed, sloppy track

12/3: 6w, + speed

FACIAL EXPRESSIONS - Trotter had post 7, circled wide on the final turn full of trot and finished fast for the win

 

PHILADELPHIA

12/5: 5w, no bias

HONEY DO JIGTIME - Was first over a long way, pressed a :26 4/5 third quarter against the sharp 3-5 winner and excusably weakened

                                                        SARATOGA         

12/5: 5w, no bias

 

YONKERS

12/4: 6w, + speed

KEYSTONE CHIANTI - Grinded first over into a stepped-up final half against an odds-on easy winner, held okay

LITTLE MICHAEL B - Left and was used hard to clear in :26 1/5, set a torrid pace and excusably tired while beating four horses home

SO TAKE THAT*** - Had post 6, followed cover down the back and finished strongly in :27 2/5 for the win

*** = extra-sharp preferred plays
