Race 7

PAN GRAD goes first start off the claim for Brewer. In a field loaded with blanks, he probably doesn't look much worse than anyone else.  This one faced some relatively decent ones at the Meadowlands in March; improvement today can be expected in tough to figure race.  ARMEGEDDON HANOVER had little chance to track down Astounding Hanover in his most recent; that rival came back to win again next out.  WON'TBEFOOLEDAGAIN didn't have the easiest trip when last seen. SECRETAGENTCULLEN has beaten these types before and will offer a price.

Race 8

SLEEK N WOW raced three back against arguably the best trotter going right now and wasn't exactly terrible in that race.  He now drops down yet another notch and this is absolutely a spot where he should fire.  CREDITCARD EXPRESS easily disposed of far weaker upon arrival last out; this will be tougher.  Our old friend LOLIQUE returns here now at age 10.  It looks like he'll be reunited with Tetrick; somewhat interesting.  IRON WILL was used throughout in a recent fast mile at Pocono; can be used underneath.

Race 9

NIKKI BEACH was one of the sports fastest 2-year-old fillies last year and now makes her sophomore debut off a qualifier against fellow star I Luv The Nitelife.  It looks like the Alagna trainee will have a new pilot in Pierce; should only need to avoid early bad habits.  Short price coming.  SOMESTREETSOMWHERE raced well enough in the Simpson against Shebestingin. She outclasses many of these and should be going forward early.  WOMAN OF TERROR won over this track in 1:53 3/5.  Let's see how good she is in her first start back.  MISTRESSTOTHESTARS goes for Burke; I think she's a bit overmatched but wouldn't be a total shock either.

Race 10

TOTALLY ADDICTIVE moves to a high percentage barn and lands the rail; seems like enough to spur a wakeup; likely to take action.  PHOTORAMA tripped out in his most recent but still was able to capitalize rather easily.  Any live flow aids his chances again; repeat possibility.  IAIN'TNOMOMALUKE makes his fourth start back; had trot to offer at both ends of his most recent mile.  BAY LIGHTNING can keep up from this spot; capable of threatening with some luck.
