OPINION HANOVER -

Trotter shipped in from Dover, was 9th at the half, picked up poor cover, swung three wide early on the final turn and finished gamely from a tough spot

FOREVER AS -

Had post 10, moved up along the inside, angled out behind a wall of horses in the stretch and finished with good trot

GOOD CITATIONS -

Favorite was stymied by a poor cover, stormed four wide at the three quarters and finished well from a tough spot

INTHEBLINKOFANEYE -

Was 4th over and stuck behind a dull horse on the final turn, swung three wide and finished well from a tough spot

THORN IN YOUR SIDE -

Left from post 8 and tucked 4th late on the first turn, moved first over into a :27 2/5 third quarter against a sharp drop-down front runner, held okay considering

SNAP TO IT A*** -

Had post 7, left well, was three wide on turn one and parked to the quarter in :26 4/5, set a fast pace while heavily pressured the final quarter and gave way grudgingly late

FAMEOUS WESTERN*** -

Had post 8, followed cover in a race with a weak flow, swung wide for the drive and finished strongly to just miss the place behind the 2/5 winner
