Race 1 

(6) BETTOR AGAIN will make his third start off the shelf, drops in class and appears ready for a winning effort. (8) MAJOR HOTTIE has the back class and quick gate speed to be a main threat in here. (9) UFDRAGONS ROCKET has finished second in each of his last two starts, comes from the Fine barn and is a logical option for the triactor.

Race 2

(1) STUBBORN BELLE looks like the top rookie trotting filly at this point in the season with $361K to her credit. (2) DANIELLE HALL remains in top form this season with a terrific record. She can’t be overlooked. (8) JUANITAS FURY has missed the board once this season from nine starts and will offer a short price.

Race 3

(2) HARPER BLUE CHIP looks like the standout in this field. (5) SEE THE WIND was a winner last week after a terrific steer from MacDonald. He comes from top connections and draws well. (7) P L HURCULES will add Lasix to his program this week and has been a triactor threat all season in this division.

Race 4 

(5) REVEREND HANOVER is a perfect three-for-three in his career and looks like the horse to beat in this division. (8) DRACHAN HANOVER has a terrific record this season, comes from the Barrieau barn and is fresh off a Gold win. (6) SPORTSKEEPER has hit the board in three of his last four starts and comes from the Coleman barn.

Race 5 

(8) DONT RUSH romped in his latest Gold outing last week and now has back-to-back scores coming into this rich dash. (3) ALACRITY is also fresh off a win, draws inside and is once again a main threat. (4) A LITTLE MORE LOVE hails from the McIntosh barn, draws inside and has hit the board in each of his last three starts. He gets Waples aboard and has terrific gate speed.

Race 6 

(1) DONAU draws the rail and is fresh off a win for trainer Auciello. He has the speed and is capable of the class jump. (4) MIRAMONTMAN drops in class and is a much better horse than he’s been showing. (3) TWIN B IMPRESSIVE has hit the board in two of his last three starts, comes from the Moreau barn and offers quick final quarter speed.

Race 7 

(8) CAPELA was a winner last week for new trainer O’Sullivan and may offer a fair price in this rich final. I’m taking a shot based on her recent efforts and winning form. (10) SPORTS CHIC might be the favorite after a terrific season, but she wasn’t impressive last week. Up until last week, she has been the queen of the division. (3) I WONDER WHY draws well, comes from the McIntosh barn and has been a force in this division all season. She has the speed and gets Condren in the bike.

Race 8 

(9) RIVETING ROSIE has been at her best in recent weeks and will gain a lot of support when the gate unfolds. (10) WHITE BECOMES HER has hit the board in 11 of 13 starts this season, comes from the Baillargeon barn and is capable of overcoming the outside. (1) SWEETIE HEARTS draws the rail and is fresh off a Gold win. She gets Waples in the bike and has been racing at her best.

Race 9 

(3) SKIPPIN BY has been atop this division over the past few weeks, draws inside and comes from the Johnson barn. (7) LADY SHADOW comes from the McNair barn and has won two of her last three. (8) ALIBI SEELSTER has been knocking on the door as of late, has excellent gate speed and may offer a fair price from a post eight start.

Race 10 

(1) JET AIRWAY begins from the rail and has been the top colt in this division all season. He’s the horse to beat based on his recent efforts and overall record. (6) THREE OF CLUBS went gate-to-wire last week for McNair and will carry the momentum into this rich final. (7) VICTOR BAYAMA comes from the Moreau barn and has been finishing off his miles very well. He should offer a price.

Race 11 

(9) SHAMBALLA has won each of his last three starts in impressive form and appears capable of stepping up against the top pacers in the country. (4) DAPPER DUDE was a winner in this class last week and draws well. (7) PISTON BROKE has hit the board in four of his last five starts and has a patented late kick.

Race 12 

(5) NICKLE BAG has hit the board in each of his last three starts, including a win two back. (6) THUNDER STEELER has terrific gate speed, gets McNair in the bike and shows sub-1:50 speed. (8) CAMAES FELLOW shows quick speed in his qualifiers and is capable in his first start back. He may offer a price, has the back class and comes from the Menary barn,

Race 13 

(5) BROCKS FORTUNE has excellent gate speed and has been knocking on the door as of late. He’s due for a win. (6) SECRETSOFTHEKNIGHT comes from the Moreau barn and has hit the board in each of his last three starts and four of his last five. (9) ROETHBLISSBERGER drops in class, is versatile and gets Jamieson aboard again this week.
