Race 1

(4) ENRNROOTH sat behind a tired foe and finished up evenly in his qualifier. Your colt might be better than we think. (5) ACADIA AS cruised in her recent qualifier. If she goes that quick tonight, she wins. (6) DANA BOKO debuts for a new barn with hobbles added. (8) ZOLI has hinted at ability at times and lured Tim Tetrick.

Race 2

(1) CAROLSIDEAL faced mostly B-2 pacers last time and now draws better in this lower class. The price should be right and she is certainly capable of winning. (7) MYSTICAL DIVA drops down as she tries her luck on the bigger track; Tetrick’s choice. (6) SARANDON BLUE CHIP looked okay in her morning effort last time. I can see her racing well in this spot.

Race 3

(5) PEMBROKE STREET drops in for a claiming tag and really doesn’t face much tonight; unenthusiastic call. (4) BABY BLAZE has early speed and looks like the favorite. (3) DC NORTHERN raced well the last time Yannick was in the bike.

Race 4

(1) OVER AND OUT raced pretty well in this class last time. This field is devoid of form and he looks as good as any. (6) CHOCOHOLIC is clearly facing easier tonight; must use. (2) PLAY FAIR is at the proper level and would be no surprise.

Race 5

(4) NARANCIA HANOVER made her first start in four weeks and raced okay considering she was stuck in post 10. (1) CRAZY EIGHTS sports similar angles as the top choice; post relief and second start after a break. (2) SOUTH PACIFIC was facing much tougher foes last time; fits here. (7) SOLID QUEEN was a sharp winner last time.

Race 6

(1) LITTLE BITTY LIES chased the best 3-year-old fillies in the game and held her own last time. She missed four weeks of action prior to that start and should be tighter this week. (9) SWEET JUSTICE raced well last time but will need to find early speed to overcome post 9. (3) VIPER BLUE CHIP goes for Ron Burke/Yannick Gingras; hard to toss. (10) DONTYOUFORGETIT has a shot with the right trip.

Race 7

(7) AMIGO RANGER was locked in along the cones last week and appeared to have something left in the tank. I’m expecting to see early speed this week. (3) IL MAGO seems to have found a field where Tetrick can be patient early and pounce late. (10) AFFIRMED ACTION has plenty of early zip and should be firing off the gate.

Race 8

(5) PRECIOUS ROSE N showed a bit more than I was expecting after a very dull qualifier. My instincts tell me she bring a big effort this week. (7) LIGHTNING PAIGE closed well for second in this class last time. (10) THE SUMMER WIND comes off a win for a top barn.

Race 9

(4) UF DRAGONS QUEEN has been getting nice checks versus some of the fastest fillies in training. There are a couple of decent young ladies in here but she looks best. (5) AMERICAN IN PARIS has been holding her own versus some older foes; using. (2) KIMS ROYAL DAY can play with these given a clean trip.

Race 10

(4) WORTH THE MONEY AS lured David Miller off two other logical contenders. Gelding moves to an inside post after starting outside in his last two races. (5) FOUNTAINBLEAU VOLO rallied impressively with hobbles added in his recent qualifier. If Miller would have chosen here, I would have done the same. (1) RAY HALL makes his second start in after a month on the shelf and could show more.

Race 11

(2) BLOODSTOCKSHALLTAB was used hard last time and should have an easier go from the inside post. (9) THE TRIPLE LINDY charged home for the win most recently and now has to hope for some help starting from the outside. (7) WALLTOCOUSINS has speed and a solid record at the Meadowlands.

Race 12

(2) DON’T KNOW CHIP drops down and adds Gingras; I’m in. (7) MAGGLIO also gets class relief but he is usually reliant on a quick pace to set up his rally. (3) BLAZED is more than capable of scoring given a decent trip.

Race 13

(2) SUNSHINE PATRIOT gets to drop two classes this week and looks as good as any in here. (9) JB ROSE comes off a good effort but is stuck with an outside post. (3) PERSUASIVE HANOVER makes her second start since August and could be ready for more. (6) SWEET BET tries the bigger track.
