Race 1

(2) DOMEDOMEDOME went another huge first-over trip last week, this time parked the route and still got up to win. She steps up but may be able to take these in her current sharp form. (10) MUSCLE BABY DOLL has come back in great form this year and tried vainly to chase down a very sharp winner last week. She is the best of this lot, but with bigger fish to fry it’s hard to predict the trip starting from out there. (1) MEADOW SEELSTER shakes one of the best local sophomore trotting fillies and should be heard from the inside post.

Race 2

(3) SPLIT THE HOUSE makes his final tune-up for the North America Cup here and it’s hard to see him losing. That being said, at likely off odds of 1/9, he will be unbettable in the win pool. (6) TEAM CAPTAIN would have won last week had he steered straight down the lane. He has a lot of talent but continues to race greenly often. (1) SOUTHWIND INDY had trouble tracking cover in a rapid mile at London, but should be coming late here for a share.

Race 3

(3) MAGIC MADNESS continues to improve – using a 27 4/5 third quarter to put her opponents away last out – and may get it done at a square price here in her sharp current form. (4) JETPEDIA is the obvious one to knock off after an easy sophomore debut win at 1/9 last week. (9) PLATOON SEELSTER started the season in an OSS Gold over the London oval and raced well to be second considering his long first-over trip that day. He’s dangerous.

Race 4

(3) ASLAN returns to a 7-day rotation and moves inside. His typical 27 flat final 1/4 gets it done vs. these if he is in close enough range at the 3/4 pole. (7) MR DENNIS drops back to a class where he has been competitive and likely gets sent hard early by Drury here. (5) CALGARY SEELSTER didn’t show a thing from the 10-hole vs. Better, now drops back to the same level he won at two back; using.

Race 5

(3) ONEISALONELYNUMBER ships in off a new life’s mark where he showed improved late speed. He stacks up well here. (9) PIERCE HANOVER has started the year off with two impressive first-over wins and also fired a lifetime best mile last out. He’s the one to knock off. (2) MAXDADDY BLUE CHIP has displayed wicked speed in both starts to date and could be any kind; keep on your pick 4 tickets.

Race 6

(8) DANCIN CAROLL raced well here last year, winning an OSS Gold Final and finishing 2nd in the Shes A Great Lady consolation. She’s had two perfect tighteners and should have plenty of early speed to chase. (3) MS MAC N CHEESE raced the best mile of her career in defeat last week and will be formidable here. (4) MAPLELEA has been in great form for a long time, but missing a month’s action likely compromises her win chances here.

Race 7

(7) ELLIS PARK had his late kick extinguished by a ridiculously slow 2nd quarter in the top class last week. Missing a check allows him to drop into a class he should dominate. (5) MELMERBY BEACH was given an easy trip last week following a miscue two back. It’s feasible that tonight he could return to the form that saw him win easily in 1:49 3/5 on May 16. (4) PUSH BACK drops out of the Preferred and should be prominent throughout from close range.

Race 8

(6) SOLAR SISTER has been lights-out this season and her win in the SBOA Final is by far the best mile on this program page. Beat her to greet the cashier. (7) LOVELY ERIN is 6 for 7 lifetime and has been making her own trips with an aggressive racing style. These are tougher - especially the choice - but this one will be heard from. (5) TESSA SEELSTER was a predictable winner last week off an impossible trip two back. She can get a good share here.

Race 9

(10) GO DADDY GO looked as good as a racehorse could both during warm-ups and winning his sophomore debut mile at London last week. He certainly doesn’t need to win this, but he’ll be hard to hold off with a reasonable trip. (2) ALLBEEF N NOBULL has consistently shown excellent speed both early and late in his miles, which is the mark of a very good racehorse; he’s dangerous. (3) ROCKIN IN HEAVEN has shown rapid improvement this season and more could be forthcoming; beware.

Race 10

(3) SHAMBALLA was thwarted by a slow second 1/4 last week, but was visibly motoring home late. That was off a 4-week break and he should be even better here, perhaps making an early move; top call. (6) THREE OF CLUBS paced a monster mile at Tioga pressing some serious splits. He’s a big threat here. (5) DUC DORLEANS showed little from an outer post vs. many of the best in the division in the Molson Pace. He can be much closer here.

Race 11

(5) MITTCENT VAN GOGH ended up jammed up fifth over in a 29-second third 1/4 last week and was rallying strongly at the end of the mile. He is capable of an upset here with a reasonable trip. (6) BOB BEN AND JOHN was a game 2nd to an impressive winner in the OSS Gold at London last week and will likely be a big favorite here vs. NW3L foes. (3) MOONWRITER rallied well to be a distant 2nd to one of the best in the division also in a London OSS Gold. He’s dangerous here.

Race 12


(3) SING FOR ME GEORGE gets class relief for his third start of the year and should have plenty of early pace to chase down; top call. (1) CARACCI HANOVER is another that should benefit from the expected heated early pace scenario and will be a big price; using. (10) NIRVANA SEELSTER is in terrific form and should be in the mix whether he leaves out or takes back early. (8) THUNDER STEELER carved out some big fractions then tired late. His form has been improving, but there is other speed to both sides of him to deal with here. (2) REGAL SON moves inside where he is likely to grab a share from closer range.
