Race 1

(1) RIGHTINTHEKISSER gets the rail and qualified very well in each of his last two starts. He moves onto this circuit and looks very capable. (5) ACE OF CLUBS comes from the McNair barn, raced well in his lone start of the season and capable of dropping more time. (7) BIG BANG BALLYKEEL comes from the Moreau barn, shows versatility and might offer a fair price.

Race 2

(2) PAN STREET USA qualified well in each of his three qualifiers and comes from the Gillis barn. (9) THE FIRE WITHIN is a perfect one-for-one this season and appears to have more to offer. (8) MACH CODE raced very well to win his first start of the season in 1:58 2/5 over Hanover's half-mile track. He moves onto this circuit, gets Condren in the bike and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 3

(3) THINKOFAGAMEPLAN comes from the McIntosh barn, draws inside and shouldn't get overlooked. (8) TWIN B SCANDAL finished second in his qualifier, timed in 1:56 2/5, and looks to have more to offer. (9) PAIR OF DEUCES comes out of the Norman barn and might offer a fair price from a post nine start.

Race 4

(4) IM DRINKIN DOUBLES went a tough trip in the early stages of the mile last week. He comes from the Moore barn, has an excellent record this season and races a beatable bunch. (10) GRAND REWARDS is a top threat if he can overcome post 10. He closed very well in his latest and Fellows' barn has been excellent as of late. (7) TEX raced very well after a mini layoff with a :26 1/5 final quarter. That sets him up very well in here.

Race 5

(2) WINDSONG GEANT exploded in deep stretch last week in the addition of lasix to finish second. He's worth backing at the same class. (1) FRIEND OR FOE gets the rail, has won two straight and is a logical option for the exactor. (6) WHISKEY TAX drops out of the Preferred level and into this class. He's versatile and likely will offer a low price.

Race 6

(5) BIG MOMENT qualified sharply for Hall of Famer McIntosh and will offer a low price in his career debut. (3) FEELING CAM LUCKY moves onto this circuit, draws inside and looks like a top threat in here. (9) NOR STAR RENEGADE comes from the Menary barn, draws outside once again and gets Jamieson in the bike.

Race 7

(7) RECHARGE comes out of the O'Sullivan barn and raced very well last week to finish second. He gets Jamieson again this week and is a likeable candidate. (8) SOME MAJOR BEACH is due for a big effort. He comes from top connections and capable of improving. (9) P L HAYMAKER drops out of the Gold Series and will have to overcome post nine once again.

Race 8

(7) SPORTS BETTOR won each of his two qualifiers in-hand and looks well ready for his career debut. (1) MAKE SOME LUCK gets the rail, comes from the Jamieson barn and paced home in :27 in his lone qualifier. (8) THUNDERSTRUCK qualified well in both outings and might offer a price.

Race 9

(6) TOP CLASS CAT might offer a fair price. He comes from O'Sullivan's barn, qualified well and is capable of dropping more time. (2) SANTANNA STAR draws inside, won his lone qualifier and should improve on this circuit. (3) MATCHPLAY BLUECHIP draws inside, comes out of Moreau's barn and closed very well in his latest qualifier.

Race 10

(3) KINETIC KING posted a strong qualifier in his latest, draws inside and looks like he has a lot left to offer. (5) MURMUR HANOVER might offer a price. He qualified just fair in his latest outing and has lots of back class to offer. (2) NOWUCIT NOWUDONT closed very well in his latest, draws inside and comes from the Cirasuolo barn.

Race 11

(5) SHADIOS was terrific in his latest with an open-length score. A repeat effort should make him a winner. (10) WARP FACTOR THREE will have to overcome post 10, but has hit the board in three of his last four starts. (1) D GS JUSTLIKETHAT gets the rail, raced well last week in the debut of Moreau and has an excellent on-the-board record this season.
