Race 1

This race looks ripe to be stolen on the front and (7) JACK ATTACK seems like one of the few with the early speed to pull the heist off. (9) EIGHT TEN EOM rallied nicely for the win last time. (6) BO'S SO HOT is another with early zip; maybe.

Race 2

(2) ROCKEYED OPTIMIST appears to be getting another free ride in this class. He beat these last week and looks like a standout again. (4) CARD SHOCK gets a better post to work with this week. (1) SHADIOS was used in the early pace most recently. He can do more with a better trip.

Race 3

(2) KHAN BLUE CHIP raced pretty well versus tougher foes last time. He outdraws his main rivals and could be controlling the action. (9) WHAT I BELIEVE & (10) MAJOR UPTREND finished one-two last time and would easily be 3-5 and 6-5 if they drew inside.

Race 4

(1) I'M THE REAL MAJOR stormed home last time from nearly last. Driver Callahan figures to have him forwardly placed this week from the better post. (7) ALITTLEAINTENOUGH has some versatility and is clearly fast enough to win. (2) RALBAR gets a better post to work with this week; capable.

Race 5

(11) JK PATRIOT drops back down to the level of his last win. Last week he was a good second behind a strong Rockeyed Optimist. (3) DRAGON LORE continues to race well. He should be forwardly placed in a bulky field. (8) TRACK MASTER D comes off an improved effort and should be a factor with a clean trip. (2) THE LADIES MAN drops for a top barn.

Race 6

(3) DAPPER DUDE has typically been on the lead lately but truly finds the perfect spot to wait for and follow cover. I can see him pulling off the upset. (8) BEACH MEMORIES figures to be aggressive in this spot; major player. (1) HANDSOME HENRY K continues to be in fine form; exotics must.

Race 7

(6) ROCKIN WIZARD was a good second behind Doctor Butch, who moved up to the top condition tonight. This guy looks as good as any in a tough field. (4) WARRAWEE NEEDY raced big on his return to the Meadowlands; must use. (2) SHOOTER'S DREAM drops back down to the level of his last victory. (1) FOOL ME ONCE has class and plenty of speed.

Race 8

(1) MOJO TERROR was used up on the engine last time. Look for a quick brush after the dust settles and a solid effort. (8) TALKING BLUES has been getting nice checks every week; better underneath. (4) CITY HALL was flat in the slop last time out. This guy could be live on the class drop at a price. (2) DREAMLANDS ART is off a win.

Race 9

(3) WINDS OF CHANGE raced well last week considering he had missed 10 weeks of action. I can see him showing more now at a fair price. (8) K-LEES SHAKENBAKE continues to climb up the condition ladder with his patented late rally. (1) SWEET ROCK finds a spot where an aggressive drive is in order. If the pace isn't too quick, he'll get a big piece.

Race 10

(6) VOICE OF TRUTH looks a bit dull at first glance, but he had no shot last time from post eight, raced in the slop the start prior, and was in over his head three back. I'm going to roll the dice at a big price and hope for the right trip. (3) PERRITO CALIENTE has been racing well and should be near the front. (4) FOUR STARZZZ Z goes for his third straight but faces tougher.

Race 11

(7) GEORGE JETTISON rallied well into a slow pace last time. This barn has been hot so far during the meet. (2) STORM THE BEACH comes off an open length score, but is facing more difficult competition this time. (6) GUNS AN ROSES wired the field last time; threat again. (5) THE POKERSTER drops down; capable.

Race 12

(5) BRICK BAZOOKA saw his perfect run to begin his career go up in smoke last time. He should have the tactical edge starting inside of that foe this week. (8) BAD TO THE BONE scored at first asking for new trainer Doug Lewis; main danger. (7) SKYFUL OF LIGHTERS could get involved if things went his way.

Race 13

(3) PIECE OF THE ROCK drops down and figures to bring a top effort. (4) ALLSTAR PARTNER gets an improved post as he searches for his first win of the year. (10) BLATANTLY BEST would be one of the favorites from an inside post; along late for a share.
