Race 1

(4) WHAT A RUSH doesn't look any worse than the rest of these and we are getting a positive driver change; worth a shot. (2) LIMA PRIDE raced okay in his first start since September and could easily show more now. (8) NEVER EVER CLEVER is off a nice win, but I don't feel confident enough to accept a shorter price.

Race 2

(4) SPECTATOR K hasn't been on the track in a while, but this field isn't exactly loaded with talent. Veteran should show speed and get a fine trip. (1) GASLIGHT will be a big price on the board and has proven capable in this class. (2) FEEL THE PRESSURE hasn't been out in a year but is faster than most of these; tough call.

Race 3

(7) DULL ROAR gets the class relief he needs to perk back up. (3) TWIN B FLIRT visits the basement condition at the Meadowlands and should improve. (1) CONORS CONCORD doesn't look that bad if you toss his most recent effort; adds Gingras.

Race 4

(10) MARTINIWITHMUSCLE was in a much tougher spot last week. Three-year-old has some ability and should get a chance to show it tonight. (9) HILL I AM has been sluggish off the gate. Those tactics would give him no shot at winning tonight. (4) TERRACINA AS moves into a barn that has started off the meet nicely.

Race 5

(5) DELIGHTFUL DRAGON needed the start last week, her first since August. With a small step forward she can upset. (1) SOUTHWIND SERENITY should protect her ground from the inside and prove tough as the favorite. (4) KATIE CANT WAIT just missed to the former last week; clear player. (3) DO YOUR JOB also came out of the same race and finished a close third.

Race 6

(8) MELADYS MONET has been super in his two starts here. (2) WAITING ON A WOMAN has dangerous inside speed. (3) QUICK DEAL could wire this field if he minds his manners. (7) TIRADE HANOVER couldn't be any sharper.

Race 7

(8) HARBOR POINT looked like he was going to go by last week but couldn't close the deal. This is his third start back from a break and he should be in top form. (6) SWEET JUSTICE stopped after going way too fast on the engine last Saturday. The drop in class this week should help. (1) TEAM SIX raced well off the bench last time and gets to drop down to the B-2 level this week.

Race 8

(3) ACE OF PACE didn't fire in the slop last time but her prior form was fine. Classy mare has the early speed to work out a close-up trip. (1) MISS MACHQUEEN ships down for a decent barn and comes off an improved effort. (2) ITSTIMEFORMETOFLY draws well and has early speed.

Race 9

(6) B L CLASS ACT has been a proven commodity at the Meadowlands the last two years winning seven races along the way. (3) SCOTTISH CROSS sports a 30-for-68 record since the start of 2013. Nine-year-old mare figures to make some early noise. (5) COFFEECAKE HANOVER won easily last time at Pocono.

Race 10

(7) SEEK THE DRAGON plunges to the basement condition at the Meadowlands and almost has to awaken. (5) DRAGON LORE comes off a dull effort but also gets a class break. (3) AVENUE HANOVER picks up Gingras and has past success here.

Race 11

(2) BEST BOSS has been facing some of the best mares in the sport lately. This looks like a winning spot. (3) UF DRAGONS QUEEN is coming off a decent effort in the Open at Yonkers. (6) MONTENEGRO stopped on the off track last time and deserves another chance.

Race 12

(8) FICO is supposed to beat this weak group. (3) CARNEGIE has been racing fairly well. (2) LINDY MCDREAMY has been facing tougher out of town.

Race 13

(3) SAM SWIFTY hasn't been bad in any of her recent starts while facing somewhat better foes. (9) BRING THEM HOME moves into a new barn and picks up Callahan; don't overlook her. (1) VICTORIA MAY N is a consistent sort that should definitely get into the exotics. (8) BROOKLYNS BEST could perk up with Gingras jumping in the bike. (12) JANIE BAY has already won three races here this year.
