Spot Play: ON THE RADAR (7th)

Race 1

(9) ROSE RUN LIMO has looked solid in his last two starts and would appear to have enough speed to get position from this spot. (3) MCATTEE gets much needed post relief after a no-chance mile. (10) QUITE POSSIBLE is always pointed forward for Gingras/Burke.

Race 2

(5) ROCK ME PLEASE gets a drop in class below the level of his claim for Fraley. Veteran may have been a bit too ambitious leaving the gate from the rail last week and suffered the consequences. (2) PREDATOR DVM picks up Dave Miller upon his arrival from Yonkers. Classy oldtimer finds a contending position. (3) C MAJOR HANOVER put in a big speed mile and came up a drop short in last. Gelding hails from a hot barn.

Race 3

(8) KINGS CAVALIER had some success here last winter and can be excused for breaking over the half mile track at Yonkers last time. Seven-year-old faces a very weak group. (2) BOY OF MINE is a steady closing threat but has an anemic win percentage. (1) THROUGH THE NIGHT didn't race badly upon recovering from a break in his first trip over the track. The pole and Dave Miller is a good combination.

Race 4

(1) DANAS SHARP SMART was very aggressively handled in his first start after a seven-month absence. Six-year-old should be a little tighter tonight and finds another solid spot. (7) FRISKIES CHEAPSUIT has a good amount of back class and should be excused for coming up short after a four-week break between races. (10) ITTAKESTWOBABY has been up against tougher competition and may spring to life with Gingras in the bike.

Race 5

(2) KARDASHIAN raced fairly well in her local debut from the outside. Four-year-old lands inside and remains in top hands. (8) ALWAYS ON A ROLL was well bet in last and made a miscue before the start losing all chance. Four-year-old returns with Gingras in the bike and is dangerous off a smooth trip. (4) A PERFECT DEO moves into the red-hot Brad Irvine stable and may come to life.

Race 6

(4) DONATELLA HANOVER has been getting better with each start for Takter. While the conditioner is rarely known to race his three-year-olds this early in the campaign this one has obviously been kept around for a reason. (1) TIME TO QUIT has gone three-for-three since joining forces with Burke and meets the acid test tonight. (2) HOME TURF may just be a better horse racing from off the pace.

Race 7

(3) ON THE RADAR is simply a much better horse than anyone at this level. (4) CONTRABAND HANOVER is another that should benefit from a meaningful drop in company. (8) YANKEE DEVIL has missed some time since his last start but returns with Gingras in the bike and should be motivated.

Race 8

(4) THAT'S JUSTICE has been doing this for quite some time. Eleven-year-old makes his 240th career start and still has the goods to handle this type of stock. (1) FREDDY DAY HANOVER will take plenty of tote action moving inside after a solid closing effort last week but due to his racing style is no certainty with these. (8) PENN TURBO TED went a huge mile against claiming foes for Bongiorno and rates a look again.

Race 9

(1) RACING ROCKY moves into conditioned company after a solid debut here two weeks back. Five-year-old is in top hands. (3) BUCKEYE IN CHARGE made a premature move as the favorite last time and paid the price of getting parked for it. Veteran has a solid record at this track and can bounce back. (4) ALLAMERICAN APAPCHE will need to get into the fray early to have success with these.

Race 10

(6) SOAPY SAP is another that appears to have been around forever. Now 11-year-old mare is as consistent as they come. (5) MAJESTIC STONE takes an important drop in company after a no-excuse trip. Ontario-bred has some class. (1) EAGLE SAY can pick up the pieces.

Race 11

(3) BOILER BOB THE QB is hard to like and hard to go against. Gingras/Burke tandem remains as potent as any in the business and with the inside placement gets a slim vote of confidence. (6) WINDSONG GORGEOUS has been razor sharp for Nick Surick but this time lands outside his main rival. (4) ST LADS HE MAN can be dangerous with the move inside.
