Best Bet: BOILER BOB THE QB (10th)

Spot Play: ROCK FAME (2nd)

Race 1

(7) CAJOLE HANOVER is simply faster than this field. Against this group he should be able to relax and have a stress free trip. (6) YOU ROCK MY WORLD has raced pretty well since the move to the Ron Burke barn and if the top one makes a break, this gelding is the one to beat. (5) DOT DOT DOT CASH raced well over the mile track last time.

Race 2

(4) ROCK FAME has been brought along patiently from outside posts. This field came up light and I wouldn’t be shocked if the Ed Hart trainee woke up. (3) DINNER AT THE MET posted a nice debut mile in the slop and is probably the one to fear. (9) ROCK STAR could have won last time if he didn’t break. The outside draw is the main obstacle tonight. (8) SHADOW MARGEAUX got hot before the sale. How will he do for new connections?

Race 3

(6) EAGLE SAY picks up Tetrick this week in his first drive since December hip surgery. She hardly looks like a great bet, but might be an interesting play if she gets away close to the early action. (3) MACKS MOLLY HALL faces a very weak field and I’d call this a class drop. (8) CHANGED IT ALL drops back down to the level of her last win; using.

Race 4

(3) CHECKINTHEBOX & (4) DOIN TIME TOGETHER are both getting positive driver changes. This is a dull-looking bunch and the driver change angle is typically a good one. (5) CASINO KING was awful last time but is capable on his better days.

Race 5

There are many more questions than answer in the pp lines of these mares. (5) DRAGON RUFFLES returns to the Meadowlands at a reduced level and gets my narrow call. (4) DRAGON PRINCESS gets a new driver at the helm. Sometimes any change can make a difference. (2) DELIGHTFUL DIVA has class and comes off a confidence building win. (3) DELICIOUSLYNAUGHTY raced well last time.

Race 6

(2) YANKEE DEVIL missed six weeks of action prior to his last start and still raced okay while closing from last. This looks like a winnable spot. (5) BOLERO ANDREW drops down and gets a good post to work with. (3) TERROR HIGH looks like a player if Campbell can keep him close. (9) WHEELAWAY raced well last time; post hurts.

Race 7

(4) ALEX BULLVILLE is sitting on a win but can’t seem to get over the top. He finally gets an inside post to work with and the price should be right. (2) YOU BET YOUR GLASS is clearly sharp. (1) TRUEYS LEGACY is a classy sort who came back from a layoff with a winning effort. He can build on that race. (5) ROCK THE WIND goes for the Gingras/Burke team.

Race 8

(2) AMILLIONPENNIES drops from the $25k claiming level to the basement conditioned level. In just his third start since September, you would think this classy guy can step up. (3) ROO ROO RUSTY draws well this week and should be forwardly placed. (5) FRESH DREAM made a costly break last time.

Race 9

(4) HOLD ON TIGHTLY tends to race well in the C-2 class and tonight should be no different. (8) RUSH N SUPREME should be rushing away from the gate with Miller at the controls. (9) FOX VALLEY LEGEND ships in from Chicago and moves into a new barn; maybe.

Race 10

(2) BOILER BOB THE QB is an honest horse that brings a good effort each week. He faces much easier this time around. (4) MAJOR GRACE drops a notch down the claiming ladder. (1) GRATIAS DEO comes off a win. (7) RACING ROCKY has shown some form of late.
