Race 7

ONE CHASER showed speed and had a good late move in him towards the end of his mile last week; seems overdue for his first win in '13.  TOM'S TORPEDO faltered late in his most recent without any apparent excuse. He was reclaimed by Schadel from that race for whom he raced very well  previously.  NUCLEAR ENEMY looked beaten last out in his first start for the new barn but came back on late to get the win.  PAYNE'S LANDING makes his first start since November; this is a level he does well at.

Race 8

DRAGON'S JOJO was bet down to 8/5 on the toteboard last out and that was with Sheridan driving.  A big driver change is coming today and this one looks much improved from where she was in April.  NARANCIA HANOVER stormed home last week to defeat a filly that had no business losing; more than playable off that try.  YOUREGONNAMISSTHIS has been racing consistently since first appearing here last month; will be flashing her customary early speed.  REAL LEGGY is tough to get a read on but can land a share from the inside.

Race 9

This will be the first time all year that MY MVP isn't racing against the best trotters in the sport and it would be hard to envision a bigger drop than this.  Four-year-old by Cantab Hall won in 1:52 last year and should dominate these.  THE BUDSTER comes out of a race in which Little Brown Fox was second; seems like the logical second choice.  CHOCOLATTA DE VIE has been first or second in all but three races this year; inside post will keep her close.

Race 10

ROCK ICON will acquire the services of Tetrick today and should be able to put together a big effort in this spot.  He hinted at some potential earlier in the year; no excuses accepted here.  JUMP THE SHARK put up a nice looking mile from his most recent at Yonkers; speed should be coming from the outside.  NUCLEAR STANDOFF broke last out when in against tougher. His mile here from two back would give him a shot.
