Best Bet: ST LADS PENNY LANE (3rd)

Spot Play: BADLANDS LOVE (8th)

 

Race 1

(5) FLYIN N GLIDIN is a good price option in the first. He comes from the McIntosh barn, qualified sharply and appears ready for his career debut. (3) NORDIC HOLIDAY draws inside, is fresh off a win from a post 10 start and has been finishing off her miles very strong. (2) THE ORANGE CRUSH put forth a solid effort last week in this class for high percentage trainer Bax.

Race 2

(4) UTAH BEACH has been showing quick flashes of speed for Hudon, draws well and finished last week with broken equipment. (2) WINDSONG LORD draws inside, hasn't missed the board in each of his last two and gets Christoforou in the bike. (7) ARQUE HANOVER kicked home in :26 2/5 last week for trainer Gillis from a post 10 start. That sets him up well for this contest.

Race 3

(7) ST LADS PENNY LANE was a winner last week from an outside post and she drops in class on this occasion. (8) DAZZLE N DELIGHT is very versatile and was a game second last week. She has a good record this season and has some upside. (2) ODDS ON CYGNUS was a winner two starts back and gets Jamieson in the bike.

Race 4

(4) LITTLE QUICK draws well and re-enters the Fellows barn. He has a patented late kick and is always a threat in this class. (8) DIANES SHARK comes from the Fine barn and is a good price option in this class. (3) INCOGNITO draws inside and is fresh off back-to-back scores, including last week in this class.

Race 5

(6) DIONYSUS LINDY was a winner last week in this class for Antonacci. (1) P L HALLE draws the rail this week, is versatile and due for a big effort. (10) CHEVOUS DAN has finished second in each of his last three starts and continues to be a threat in this class.

Race 6

(5) PORSCHE SEELSTER gets major post relief in this event and likely will be the favorite. (9) JUSTABIT MEAN drops out of the Gold Series, shows a lot of versatility and gets Drury back in the bike. (10) LIFE IS A BEACH has hit the board in each of her last two and three of her last four.

Race 7

(8) MR LINDY is undefeated in three career starts and looks like the horse to beat. (10) JEWELS IN THE SAND has a terrific record this season and is fresh off a 17-1 upset last week in this class. (4) RAGAZZO DOLCE enjoys finishing second for driver Tony Kerwood and is capable of the class jump.

Race 8

(5) BADLANDS LOVE drops out of the Grassroots Series and into this easier field. This is a wide-open tilt and she may offer a nice price. (1) LIGHT OF AVELINE draws the rail, qualified well and looks like she's ready for her first career start. (3) MAJOR HANGOVER doesn't like to win races as her 0-for-19 record indicates, but drops in class and is capable of the triactor ticket.

Race 9

(2) PAID IN CASH has hit the board in all seven career starts and likely will be the favorite in this dash when the gates unfold. (6) NOBLE JILLY closed very strong last week to finish second. A repeat effort makes her a top player. (5) J HIGH has hit the board in each of her last three with a pair of wins. She proved she can handle the class jump with a third-place finish last week.

Race 10

(6) BLUE CHIP SUNSHINE was a game second last week, comes from the Moreau barn and will offer a short price. (7) P L GYRO has been very consistent for the past number of weeks in this class and is an obvious candidate. (8) EAST MEADOW used a ground saving trip last week en route to a third-place finish. He's a price horse once again.

Race 11

(9) VITAL SIGN has been the king of this class for the past two weeks and likely will be the favorite. (6) GREYSTONE MOE has hit the board in each of his last three starts, draws well and is very versatile. (2) BRAND OF MY OWN raced very well last week from a post 10 start and has been a proven threat in this class. He's a good option with Jamieson aboard.
