Race 2

(7) TOTALLY RIPPED was terrific in his latest in a new lifetime best. He's at a level where he's very competitive; versatile and comes from good connections. (3) MOONLIGHT ESPOIR comes from the Beaver barn, draws inside and drops out of the Gold series. (8) YOOOOUKILIS has hit the board in two of his last three starts, is versatile and should offer a price in this dash.

Race 3

(4) THINKOFAGAMEPLAN comes from the McIntosh barn and was a game second in the Champlain last week. He now receives major class relief. (7) ACE OF CLUBS has hit the board in each of his last six starts and has been a consistent player in this class for many weeks. (9) NOR STAR RENEGADE comes from the Menary barn, is very versatile and gets Jamieson aboard.

Race 4

(7) GRACEFUL MELODY has been knocking on the door in each of her last two, offers a lot of gate speed and will offer a short price. (4) ARTISTIC FUSION has won each of her last two, moves up in class and draws well. (5) NINE LIVES HANOVER went a big effort last week and did so at a high price.

Race 5

(4) LADY DYNAMITE was a winner two back and raced very strong last week. This is a wide-open tilt and she should offer a price. (10) MAJESTIC GINGER has all kinds of speed to offer, but has been self destructing as of late. (8) AGGRESSIVE was a winner in his latest, is versatile and shows the speed needed for this class.

Race 6

(5) HALF A BILLION comes from the Barrieau barn, has excellent gate speed and is very capable of dropping more time on this bigger surface. (4) STAR COVER has scored back-to-back wins, draws inside and gets Jamieson in the bike. (3) PAIR OF DEUCES has been very consistent in each of her last three stars, draws well and poses as a threat for the triactor.

Race 7

(3) CNDIANA JONES moves into the Dupuis barn and was a game second last week in this class in a good final time. (1) SIR LBS Z TAM continues to offer a low price in this class, gets the rail and will aim for a better trip. (5) BAROCKEY has terrific gate speed, draws well and has been a threat in this class throughout her career.

Race 8

(8) ROBERT HILL qualified strong by seven lengths, comes from the Alagna barn and likely will offer a short price. (4) FIGHTMASTER has been game in each of his last three starts in this Grassroots level, draws inside and was an open length winner two back. (5) PACE SEELSTER has been knocking on the door in each of his last two and is due for a big effort.

Race 9

(3) ADVERSITY has been knocking on the door in each of his last five starts in this class and is overdue for a win. (1) SHEER FLEX draws inside, has a good record this season and is very likeable in this class. (9) JUSTCALLMERONALD comes from the O'Sullivan barn and has been much better in his last two.

(3) RIVETING drops in class, draws inside and is due for a win. (8) J HIGH has won back-to-back scores, moves up in class and will get a lot of attention in here. (1) MISS DOLLAR MAM faces a tougher bunch, but gets the rail and has excellent gate speed.

Race 12

(3) WANNA ROCK N ROLL has been much better in her last number of starts, including a pair of wins. She draws inside, has excellent gate speed and gets Waples back aboard. (8) BAREFOOT BEAUTY is a better filly than she's been showing and is a good exactor option. (5) DANA DEAREST draws well, comes from the Coleman barn and has posted back-to-back wins.

Race 13

(1) BACK YARD BABY draws the rail in this wide-open tilt and was a game second last week, by a neck. (6) MACHNBYRD PRINCESS was a beaten favorite last week in this class and is due for a win.
