Race 1

Race 2

(2) SUNFIRE BLUE CHIP qualified back nicely behind Captaintreacherous and appears set to roll for a barn that has been sending them out ready. (4) WAKE UP PETER has proven capable of grinding on the rim; sharp. (5) FRANKIES DRAGON just missed in a big mile last time.

Race 3

(1A) SAYITALL BB flashed good pace at both ends of the mile while facing a better filly last time. (2) ROCKINGCAM PARK only needs a smooth trip to be a menace. (6) FANTICIPATION hasn't missed a check this year.

Race 4

(3) ACT NOW rallied nicely from an impossible spot in her first start since November. Western Ideal-sired filly has talent and is eligible to improve. (1) ATSALLRITE HANOVER was in full flight while sweeping the field impressively last time. (4) BLIXTRA improved in her most recent race.

Race 5

(4) DANCIN HILL hasn't really shown his best yet and should have every opportunity to stretch his legs out before the final. (5) DOO WOP HANOVER raced well behind a top 3-year-old in Western Vintage. This guy is the horse to beat. (2) BEAT THE DRUM has a right to improve in his second start of the year.

Race 6

(3) WARRAWEE NEEDY is one fast sucker who can reel off immense speed at a moment's notice. All he needs is a reasonable trip to score in this spot. (2) BOLT THE DUER should be much better in his second start of the year; very dangerous. (1) CLEAR VISION & (1B) SWEET LOU are two-thirds of a powerful Ron Burke entry. Either could win.

Race 7

(6) DRAGON LORE was awesome while romping to victory in the preliminary leg of this mini-series. (5) TELL US MORE has some traffic and still paced home willingly late. (7) MEIRS HANOVER moves into a new barn, but this stable knows how to make them roll.

Race 8

(4) RUSTYS SKIPP was super two starts back but couldn't get in gear last time. Now Callahan is back in the bike; expecting form reversal. (6) HILLBILLY rallied nicely last time and only needs to be close to have a shot. (9) K LEES SHAKENBAKE has ability but needs some pace help up front to set him up.

Race 9

(3) SHADIOS finished better with Lasix added in his last qualifier. In a field with no standouts, I'll take a shot. (7) JENERAL PATTON looked good in his career debut but moves to an outside post and faces slightly tougher. (2) RESPECTABLE DREAM ships in off a nice mile at Yonkers.

Race 10

(4) JINS DRAGON is hardly an inspired pick, but he could control the action in this race. (1) WILLY MUCHA has speed and the cones; big chance. (8) BOLDER & (10) RELENTLESS DREAMER both need a fast pace to set up their late kicks.

Race 11

(4) MY TEMUDJIN N comes off a sharp mile and should be able to tackle this modestly more difficult crew. (2) MIGHTY YOUNG JOE figures to flash speed tonight. (5) COBALT MAN hails from a barn that sent out live horses last weekend.

Race 12

(2) NEAT raced gamely for second despite a long trip versus a nice 3-year-old. (4) SOMEWHERE FANCY drops out of stakes competition. (6) LETS FOAL AROUND has speed and form.

Race 13

(10) ALEX BULLVILLE & (9) IM BANSKY jump off the page as the best two horses in the field. One of them should win despite the tough posts. (1) ITTAKESTWOBABY won when last seen at this level.
