Race 2

(6) BWT TAJ has won three of his last four starts since arriving in the Auciello barn and was a close second last week. (7) SAMIRA HANOVER's winning streak came to an end last week following a third-place finish. She remains at this same class, enjoys being put into the race and is a top candidate once again. (4) ROLLS BLUE CHIP hasn't found his best stride yet in three starts this season, but he's due for a big effort. He comes out of a top trotting barn, finally draws inside and Moiseyev will make the most of his chances.

Race 3

(8) EXCUSE ME PLEASE has won two of his last three starts and remains at this level. Mayotte and Cherwaiko has enjoyed success with this son of Yankee Glide and have been classifying him accordingly. (6) DESIGNER GENES closed very well last week to finish third and finally draws well. (2) HES A DEMON showed a much improved effort last week in the debut for new trainer McIntyre.

Race 4

(10) DANA DEAREST has won each of her three pari-mutuel starts this season and is capable of overcoming post 10 in this contest. (7) FRAME WORTHY is one-for-one to start the season and did so parked the entire mile. That was a gritty effort on her behalf and she can only improve in her second start of the season. (6) BROOKDALE SHADOW comes out of the Moore barn and is fresh off a winning effort in a new career best.

Race 5

(1) SCARY MAGIC comes out of the Norman barn, gets the rail and won two back on this circuit. (5) AGGRESSIVE draws well and has been racing very consistently in each of his last three starts. (9) SERENDIPITIOUS comes out of the SBOA final and faces a much easier group. She comes out of Jamieson's barn and will need to mind her manners.

Race 6

(7) COMPANY MAN hasn't been worse than second in each of his five starts this season and closed very well last week to finish second as the favourite. (4) MAJOR DEAGAN is fresh off a win and has posted back-to-back sub-:28 final quarters. He draws well once again, gets Christoforou in the bike and is very capable of the class jump. (8) SWISS BANK HANOVER has terrific gate-speed, which may be applied from an outside post and has a license to improve even more in here.

Race 7

(5) INTIMIDATE hasn't found the winner's circle yet from three starts this season, but has been trotting very quick miles and should appreciate a much easier field to his liking. (8) SLIP INTO GLIDE has won two of his last three and four of his last five all in this class. (9) MEGO MOSS has hit the board in 10 of 16 starts this season and has a quick turn of foot when the gate unfolds.

Race 8

(3) CHARMBO WILLIE has a terrific overall record this season and will make his second start for capable trainer Nixon. (8) FIRST IMPRESSION tends to race very inconsistently, but he drops in class to this bottom level and looms as a threat. (7) THE BIG BITE put forth a credible effort in his return last week.

Race 9

(6) BURNIN MONEY is my upset play of the night. He was trotting home very strong in his latest effort as he was charted over seven-lengths back at three-quarters to be beaten two-lengths for the win. (8) CATCH THE DREAM has hit the board in each of his last two starts and got interfered with in his latest. (7) HLDONTGHTTOYURDRMS may be the post time favourite when the gate unfolds, but he hasn't been at his best in recent weeks.

Race 10

(3) PORSCHE SEELSTER finished fourth in the $159K SBOA final in just her first start of the season. She was individually timed in 1:53 2/5 and can only improve this week. (6) POLK DOT HANOVER has been knocking on the door at this level in her last three starts and is due for a win. (9) BORN TO DREAM comes out of the O'Sullivan barn and has hit the board in two of her last three starts at this level.
