Race 1

(6) URBANITE HANOVER gets class relief, comes from a good barn and was timed in 1:50 3/5 in his latest. (7) MACHAL JORDAN is a much better horse than he's been showing. He has the speed and drops in class once again. (2) THE REV gets post relief this week and just missed in his latest by a nose.

Race 2

(3) HARPER BLUE CHIP looks like the best in here on paper. He gets a good post and won last weeks elim at ease. (6) MUSCLE MATTERS has hit the board in both starts this season, comes from the Baillargeon barn and has excellent gate-speed. (9) JITTERBUG failed as the favourite last start and is capable of overcoming post nine with Tetrick.

Race 3

(3) WHITE BECOMES HER has risen to be a main threat in the provincial program as of late with three straight wins. (1) TOSCA was a game second alst week at high odds and gets Tetrick in the bike. (2) MAYBERRY has been much better in her last two starts and shouldn't get overlooked for the triactor.

Race 4

(9) NICKLE BAG won two back and was timed in sub-1:50 in his latest. (2) GRIN FOR MONEY gets major post relief and drops in class. (1) CHAMPAGNE PHIL has hit the board in each of his last three starts with a pair of sub-1:50 efforts.

Race 5

(5) VEAL MARSALA was a game third in his latest and he may come as a price. (9) JDS CALEB MAN is fresh off a win at this level, comes from a high percentage trainer and has a lot of upside. (1) VAL AMERICA draws inside and just missed in his latest, by a length. He finally draws well and should provide a price in this same level.

Race 6

(3) RESISTANCE FUTILE draws inside, comes from the Burgess barn and gets major class relief. (7) LUCAN HANOVER has yet to find the winner's circle this season from eight starts, but is hard to leave off the exactor. (1) UPFRONT HOOSIERBOY draws inside and hasn't missed the board in four starts for trainer Johnson.

Race 7

(4) BOOMBOOM BALLYKEEL has won two straight, enjoys leaving the gate and may offer a fair price in this wide-open final. (3) SILVERHILL SHADOW captured his elim last week, comes from the Moore barn and is fresh off a career best. (8) HUNCH MAN was flying late last start and has a lot of versatility to offer.

Race 8

(6) PISTON BROKE exploded last week en route to victory with a sizzling :25 final quarter. In a short field, you can only expect the same tactics from Zeron. (5) CAPTIVE AUDIENCE returns home, comes out of the Johnson barn and has paced three straight sub-1:49 efforts. (3) EVENIN OF PLEASURE draws inside and has yet to miss the board in five straight.

Race 9

(1) SEBASTIAN K draws inside, remains undefeated in four starts this season and is the best free-for-all trotter in North America right now. (2) MARKET SHARE is the defending champ and is the next logical option after winning last weeks elim. (6) MISTER HERBIE captured this event in 2012 and has been knocking on the door in each of his three starts this season.

Race 10

(4) LADY SHADOW was power driven last week and put forth a sizzling performance. She's the filly to beat based on last week’s elim. (2) SUDOKU comes from the O'Sullivan barn, enjoys racing off-the-pace and captured her elim last week. (3) MY SECRET BELLE has won three of her last four, draws inside and is a logical option for the triactor.

Race 11

(7) MICHAELS POWER comes from the Coleman barn, drops in class and is a much better horse than he's been showing. (6) MYSTICAN drops in class once again, comes from the Gillis barn and has $1.8 million of back class. (8) WORLD AWAY has all kinds of back class to offer, closed well in his latest and may offer a price once again.

Race 12

(2) SHAMBALLA was ultra impressive in last week’s 1:49 2/5 winning effort. (7) MELMERBY BEACH won the Summertime Series in his latest and has been racing at his best. (1) PLAY IT AGAIN SAM draws inside, comes from the Moore barn and paced home in :25 4/5 in his latest.

Race 13

(7) JET TRACKER might offer a fair price in the finale. He has the speed and is capable of a big effort. (3) SHADIOS draws inside and has won two straight. He likely will be the post time favourite. (5) JACKSON BRADY comes out of the Summertime Series and faces a much easier field.
