Race 2

(6) ELIZA DREAM has a good record this season, draws in the middle of the gate and gets Hall of Famer Pierce in the bike. (4) CHELSEAS CHANCE comes from another Hall of Famer in McIntosh and will look for a better effort after missing the board in both starts this season. (9) HOLLYWOOD DRAMA has won two straight coming into this contest and has quick gate-speed to overcome post nine.

Race 3

(1) PLEASE OKAY moves into the Fellows barn and was an open-length winner in her latest at Harrington. (8) CAPTURETHEMEMORY will make her first start of the campaign and looks like she has been well prepared with two solid qualifiers. (10) MISSYS GA GA hasn't missed the board in two starts this season and is fresh off a win for trainer Dion.

Race 4

(6) EMBRY SEELSTER hit the board for the first time last start with a second-place effort. She continues to improve with each start and closed very well in a good time. (8) MAJOR HANGOVER comes out of the Jones' barn, which has been terrific this season. This filly has hit the board in two of five starts this season and did all the work on the front last start before tiring down the stretch and settling for second. (1) NINE LIVES HANOVER was racing in the non-winners of two level in both her starts this season and drops down into a level where she should be much more comfortable.

Race 5

(9) MOJITO AS comes out of the Lorentzon barn, is fresh off an eye-catching win and has hit the board in three of four starts this season. (7) LENNY MAC raced well in her elimination of the SBOA and will now face an easier group of fillies. (8) CAROUSAL HALL has missed the board once from six starts this season, is versatile and shows the speed needed as she's raced primarily at Vernon Downs.

Race 6

(8) EXCUSE ME PLEASE has shown much improvement in each of his last four starts and has been a top candidate at this level. (2) HOLY MOLIE MAGGIE draws inside after a post 10 start last week. She raced well to finish fourth and should be better positioned in the early going this week. (10) DESIGNER GENES was a winner last week at this level and may offer a fair price with a post 10 start.

Race 7

(2) PORSCHE SEELSTER enjoyed a successful season last year with over $100K in earnings and has come back this season very well. (7) JOKES JET comes out of the McNair barn and this filly has posted back-to-back winning qualifiers over Saratoga. (8) FRAME WORTHY was terrific two back when she won at first asking in 1:54 3/5 from an outside post and tough trip.

Race 8

(1) BWT TAJ gets the rail and has been racing spectacular since arriving in the Auciello barn. (2) DELCREST JULIAN moves into the Moreau barn, who has trained this son of Oaklea Julian in the past and draws inside. (5) FORK has been racing very well and is a top threat when he minds his manners.

Race 9

(6) QUADROPHENIA was the heavy-favourite last week in her debut on this circuit and made a costly break in stride. Menary spoke highly of this daughter of Kadabra during a pre-game interview, which also played into my handicapping. (10) LOVE DETECTIVE comes out of the Takter barn and will have to overcome post 10. She continues to trot in the 1:56-range, which is quick enough to be a main threat in this Grassroots level. (3) P L HALLE was impressive in her career debut last week for trainer Clements.

Race 10

(4) JUST CALL ME LADY is my upset play of the night. She continues to show the speed and is due for a win. (8) K D BELLA will likely be the favourite when the gates unfold with her credible record this season and she is a top candidate. (5) STEPHANA DREAM has hit the board in two of her last three starts and moves onto this circuit.

Race 11

(9) SURPRISE HANOVER recently raced in the North America Cup eliminations and a division of the Somebeachsomewhere. He returns to this non-winners of two level and should be a top threat. (7) ARI ALLSTAR comes out of the Gillis barn and has posted a pair of credible qualifiers. (5) V I P BAYAMA qualified well for trainer Larocque, draws well and enjoyed a solid rookie campaign. He shows the speed and paced home strong in his latest qualifier.
