Race 2

(6) SLIP INTO GLIDE won last week at this level and has won three of his last four. (3) WHEELING N DEALIN continues to race well and finish off his miles very strongly. He continues to improve with each start. (4) MEGO MOSS continues to offer a fair price and went a big trip last week. He's versatile and has hit the board in four of his last five.

Race 3

(3) BROOKDALE SHADOW went a speedy mile last week in just her second start of the season. She draws inside and is ready for her first win of the season. (7) BORN TO DREAM closed very well last week at high odds. She showed the speed required and likely will offer a much lesser price. (2) IM SHAMELESS is fresh off a win, draws inside and comes from a high percentage barn.

Race 4

(3) FIERY JET debuts for Moreau, has been racing very consistently and is certainly capable. (1) JIGGLE IT gets the rail, posted a speedy qualifier and comes out of Steacy's barn. (9) MYTHE DUHURAS raced very well last week and continues to drop time. He'll have to overcome the outside, but is a good option for the triactor.

Race 5

(4) MEADOWVIEW ARTY is fresh off a win and has been racing much better since arriving in the Auciello barn. (9) RECKOM IM READY finished second in his latest and has an excellent record this season. (7) AISLING has hit the board in two of his last three, comes out Moreau's barn and may offer a fair price at this level.

Race 6

(2) KINDOFABIGDEAL raced very strong in his first career start last week. He dropped considerable time from his qualifier and is ready to break his maiden. (1) MITTCENT VAN GOGH has finished second in each of his last two starts and was very impressive in his most recent effort. (8) VEGAS RICH has hit the board in two of his last three, shows the speed and is able to overcome the outside to hit the triactor ticket.

Race 7

(9) BUDDY HALLY hopefully offers a fair price. He's been racing very strong in recent outings and if he's positioned well in the early stages, I like his chances. (5) THANKYOUKESSEL closed very well in his latest, draws more inside and remains at the same level. (2) ROCKYS FIRST did all the work last week en route to victory at this class. He won't offer the same price as he's been racing at his best in recent weeks.

Race 8

(2) WANNA ROCK N ROLL finished a game second last week at this level, draws inside and a repeat effort should be quick enough to win. (7) POLK DOT HANOVER comes out of Menary's barn and has hit the board in each of her last two in this class. (8) NINE LIVES HANOVER ships onto this circuit after qualifying at The Meadowlands in a solid final frame. She shows the speed and likely will race from behind.

Race 9

(10) CATCH THE DREAM has all kinds of back class, faces an easier bunch and is due for a turnaround effort. (9) INTENSE AMERICA debuts in Moreau's barn, which will drop her price. She hasn't been racing at her best, but drops in class. (4) BOOGIE WOOGIE draws inside, drops in class once again and is a top threat at this level.

Race 10

(10) FRAME WORTHY qualified very strong and looks the best on paper. (1) LYONS SHADOW closed very well last week to finish third. She now gets the rail and shouldn't be too far back. (4) DANIKA PATRIX hasn't missed the board in four career starts, remains at this maiden level and comes out of Menary's barn.
