Race 1

(8) MACHO MASS was impressive in his debut powering by first-up to an easy win. There's likely plenty more where that came from for this one; call to repeat. (9) ONE DIRECTION looks well prepared by trainer Jones for his sophomore debut; contender. (2) TYRONE ZOEY was patiently driven and got by late for the win in her 2015 debut. There is some talent here.

Race 2

(1) KIKISKISSINKOUSIN put up some solid fractions and only tired late. The return to a 7-day rotation here for this one may be enough to do the trick. (8) EXHILIRATED stormed home from way back to just miss. Her style often leaves her a victim to trip and pace, thus the weak win record. (7) MAKE WAY was hung out to dry at Flamboro which left her with zero chance. She returns to a claimer here and can share vs. this group.

Race 3

(3) BISTROBISTRO TAJ showed some talent last year and looks ready to make an impact right away here in her 3YO debut. (7) POINTE OF INQUIRY was going well in Florida now tries the big circuit but has missed some time; mixed signals. (10) DUH BUBEES won a leg of the Tie Silk Series and is a threat here even from out there, especially if she leaves hard.

Race 4

(7) INTENDED STYLE rolled to an impressive win first time out for trainer Johnson off the claim. He should be a big threat here, too. (4) GENESSEE showed good early speed then stopped in a swift dash. He gets back with claimers here and has upset potential. (2) CROWN ISLE self-destructed at the start last week. He is a contender here if minding his manners.

Race 5

(9) STRONG HOPE qualified fast enough to contend right away here off the layoff. Henry will be blasting early, no doubt. (3) DONCANGO is another that will show speed if he stays flat, which may be a big 'if'. (5) MOONBEAM HALL is another coming in off a solid qualifier that has the look of a contender.

Race 6

(2) OCEANVIEW BINDI gets class and post relief and top call to take this conditioned group. (3) FAROUCHE HANOVER roared home last week with a swift last 1/4 and will pop at a good price soon; beware. (4) LIFE IS A LADY powered up late for her first win of the season and although these are tougher, she's not out of the mix here.

Race 7

(1) MS MAC N CHEESE was a Grassroots win machine last year and looks ready to roll here with a favorable pace scenario as the lead looks there for the taking early, which is what she wants. (5) I WONDER WHY had a higher profile than the choice, competing in the Gold division and looks like the main threat. (6) SASSAFRAS GIRL hasn't been in position to win turning home in either of her 2015 starts. A more aggressive drive puts her right there on the money.

Race 8

(1) KARLEE SUE was a bang-up third in an Ohio Sires Stake at Miami Valley and looks best here. (2) WARAWEE QUALLY was passively driven last week and missed the board for the first time. She can rebound here with a more aggressive steer. (6) SHESAGAMEMAJOR got in a bit of traffic last week and can threaten these.

Race 9

(7) OLYMPIC SON wired some of these last out and will take some beating in his current form; call to repeat. (4) JUANITAS FURY was one of the best 2YO trotting fillies in the province last year. She often finds herself well back at the 3/4 which could come into play here. Beware accepting a low price on her. (9) SECOND SISTER got going good at the end of 2014, culminating with a Grassroots Final win. She can contend here.

Race 10

(2) BEACH GAL flew home in her season's debut but couldn't catch the top two. She should be able to beat a couple of these off the gate and work out a trip closer to the pace. (4) WAASMULA wasn't far off in the Chip Noble at Miami Valley and has held razor-sharp form for a month; the main danger. (8) ROCK N ROLL XAMPLE blew up the tote board as an overlay off a good trip. She could get a similar scenario here so keep her on your late pick 4 tickets.

Race 11

(2) MARLEE B looks like the best closer in a field laden with early speed; top call. (7) EMPRESS DEO ships in from New Jersey in sharp form; she can lead or sit a trip up near the pace effectively. (4) REQUEST FOR PAROLE paced to a season's-best blowout win first time in the Baillargeon barn; threat.

Race 12

(2) AN ANGEL SHES NOT has improved dramatically for Auciello the past two weeks. She might even be a good price again here; top call. (6) SOUTHWIND MISCHIEF looks well-prepped to start her 3YO campaign to which she is heavily-staked. She's the one to beat. (3) CODE ONE HANOVER was beaten by the choice in her 2015 debut but can get closer with that start under her belt. (10) SOLAR SISTER was a top-class rookie last year and debuts with Lasix here. She can share even from out there. (8) DIANNA SANTANNA will be passing horses late and can get a minor slice.
