Race 1

(8) IMSPORTY raced well in the slop now he goes for Moreau off the claim here; top call in the opener. (7) LOCK N RELOAD has a solid record now tries claimers for the first time. He's worth a long look vs. many suspect foes. (9) JUST A THOUGHT passed most of the field in the back 1/2 to win in his debut in claimers. He could repeat; toss on Pick 5 tickets. (2) THE AVENGER should be able to take a share racing from close range here.

Race 2

(7) PENNIES FROM ABOVE almost got the job done a class higher last week. If she can lay a bit closer this time, she can beat these. (2) POLLAR HALL was beaten by a promising two-year-old colt last time and he should be prominent throughout here. (10) STUCK IN MY SPANKS has been racing against the best female rookie trotters, now she faces elders. She can take a share here if she stays flat. (8) VERY CLASSY should show some early foot then stick around for a share.

Race 3

(1) MISTY DE VIE should be able to sit closer to the pace here and she can convert if she finds live cover. (4) BETTORS UP has a great record and flashed excellent speed in the summer. She will likely be the one to chase down. (6) HOT SPOT HANOVER has been solid in her last two and a threepeat isn't out of the question here. (7) SHE LIGHTS OUT may last longer leaving from a better post here.

Race 4

(5) JMR MACH MEL requalified okay after taking a ton of money in her debut and breaking. I'll give her another try in a wide-open dash. (10) SNAPPY DRESSER has been racing decently and she could pepper the exotics here leaving from the outside. (2) COLUMNIST gets Filion here in an effort to break her maiden in her 28th try; she isn't impossible here. (4) B FIFTEEN looks like she has a bit of talent but she must stay flat.

Race 5

(10) UTOPIA has been in good form for several weeks now he goes for the top barn off the claim here. I am expecting Filion to get him a better position early here, even leaving from the 10 hole. (8) OLYMPIC SON raced well for Henry last time; expect the same here with that driver sticking. (6) KINETIC KING can close for a smaller slice, as he does often. (1) SECOND SISTER steps up off a good effort but merits a look for exotic plays.

Race 6

(6) LAY LADY LAY has been game in defeat in her past two starts after doing the heavy lifting. If she can work out a slightly easier trip, she can beat these. (7) MS MAC N CHEESE drops a few levels here and she has to be considered despite being an infrequent winner this year. (2) BET YA moves inside where she is sure to be heard from; using. (5) D GS PESQUERO has developed an effective closing style. She can share again here.

Race 7

(2) TWIN B INSPIRING is in sharp form and she has beaten better at this meet already; top call. (5) REGAL LUCK picks up Filion here shipping in which should mean she is headed to the front early; using. (7) STONEBRIDGE QUEST drops and may get sent off the gate here, which would make her dangerous. (8) RIDE AWAY SHARK hasn't missed a check in over a month and her good tactical speed should land her a spot near the front early here.

Race 8

(3) DOMEDOMEDOME drops to a level where she should be a top contender leaving from a good post here. (4) JETPEDIA has the speed to contend here and perhaps Davis Jr. will look for a spot closer to the front. (1) CROWN CLASSIC quite often takes a smaller share and she could do just that leaving from the inside here. (9) SCARY GOOD is in good form and he stands a decent chance of landing on the ticket here.

Race 9

(6) SANDBETWEENURTOES missed four weeks prior to her last start and came up dull. Returning quicker could make all the difference here. (3) ROCK N ROLL EXAMPLE roared home to win in this class last week. She's the one to hold off late. (1) WRANGLER MAGIC should get a good trip here leaving from the rail and take a share. (5) SAYITALL BB never missed a check and she should take one here.

Race 10

(1) KILLEAN FINALE draws well coming off a lifetime-best score; call to repeat. (5) SELLING THE DREAM faces easier here and also draws well; the main threat. (4) KATIES BEACH is 3 for her last 54 but is in good form and she can hit the ticket. (7) NAUGHTY LADY B was 2nd to the choice from the same post last week. She can take a smaller share here with a similar effort.

Race 11

(4) WHISTYS PARADISE showed her patented late kick off last week and if she brings a similar effort here she can win this despite stepping up in class. (10) MISS COCO LUCK drops a couple of classes here and may try to wire this. (2) BAROCKEY gets back to a regular cycle here and could be a lot closer at the finish. (5) ST LADS PENNY LANE and (8) P L HURRICANE are both great mares to use underneath in exotics.
