Best Bet: DW’S NY YANK (6th)

Spot Play: MONEY ON MY MIND (10th)

Race 1

(6) DONNIE DARKO circled last week chasing a fast pace and was gaining late. Burke trainee appears both logical and overdue. (7) DYNAMITE DAME gets another crack with these off a game win. (8) MUSCULARITY is now handled by DiDomenico and he qualified willingly.

Race 2

(7) DOUBLE BUNDY N gave way last week after brushing to the lead and controlling the action. Prior start was decent and the veteran could be an off-the-pace threat here. (3) LUCAS HALL was an easy winner at this level last out and looms the one to beat but there's little value there. (5) BELL A CHICK has been a steady earner in his last few starts.

Race 3

(3) TREVOR'S BEBE dropped to this level last week, had aim but broke late. Mare lacks the class of some others here but she should be in a good striking spot again. (5) DREAM'S BAR gets a touch of class and post relief and should be more involved. (8) HELLO MY DREAM exits stakes action, where she didn't disgrace herself.

Race 4

(8) PROVE UP bumped to this level, took the money but broke. Prior two efforts were solid and he deserves another look. (6) STAN THE MAN gets some needed class relief but he's missed time. (5) EVIL URGES held okay after an uncovered grind last week.

Race 5

(5) WALK THE WALK had been hard to fault until last week's speed break in the Singer final. Muscle Hill offspring can rebound here. (9) KEYSTONE BOCA flattened badly in her last two but she could be a threat here with forward early placement. (7) WAY OUTTA HERE had a decent three-year-old season and he could be ready off a good qualifier.

Race 6

(6) DW'S NY YANK finished very willingly right off the bench. Burke trainee had a huge 2014 season and based on last week's effort it's going to be a promising year. (7) MELADY'S MONET came up flat two back then was scratched sick but he was better last out. (1A) MASTER OF LAW has proven he belongs with the top echelon of trotters for Takter.

Race 7

(1) SUMMER SNOW put in a gutsy uncovered effort last out and was second best. Grey mare has nice back class and trainer Lappe has had a decent meet. (6) WESTERN EMPRESS is competitive stock from Burke who should fit well here. (9) SHEBESTINGIN is probably best here but she's missed time off a scratch-sick.

Race 8

(5) CLEMENTINE DREAM recently added Lasix and drops to a more appropriate level off a decent effort. Worth a look. (3) CHINESE CUISINE should be forwardly placed as Callahan's choice. (4) WINDING HILL closed nicely last out and will be much closer tonight.

Race 9

(4) KEEPING OPTIMISTIC overcame a long trip to upset for the live Harmon/Marohn tandem. With the right trip he can repeat in this competitive event. (1) WESTERN TSUNAMI has done little wrong of late at this level and he looms a solid threat from this inside post. (3) BESTNOTLIE HANOVER returned from Yonkers and turned it around with a game score last week.

Race 10

(1) MONEY ON MY MIND was a bit short in his first start off the layoff. Burke trainee drops and should be tighter tonight. (4) WORTH THE MONEY AS has hit the ticket in his last three versus cheaper and he could rally here with a good setup. (10) DETROIT RAPPER rallied nicely to pick up a share in the Singer final but he needs to find a way to overcome post 10.

Race 11

(4) LAUDERDALE steps up again looking for three straight. Sharp sort has to be respected. (2) IL MAGO was boxed in appearing to have trot last week, his first start of 2015. Clearly he's a huge threat. (6) UPFRONT BILLY is a consistent sort who can take all with the right trip.

Race 12

(9) FUEL CELL is stuck in another outside post but his early speed always puts him in play. (2) FOX VALLEY LEGEND couldn't reach last out; he returns to the Harmon barn with post relief. (1) HS CERTIFIED looks for two straight.

Race 13

(7) ALWAYS AS FAST finished mildly in a needed acclimating start; mare could be ready to show more in this suspect field. (9) SIR LEHIGH Z TAM missed a nose in her latest. (1) THE SUMMER WIND finished mildly last out and is clearly a contender from this spot.
