Race 2

(9) MAGIC IS COOL comes from the Maxwell barn and may offer a price. He shows quick speed, gets Condren in the bike and has some upside. (3) P L HALLE draws inside, drops in class and raced in the Grassroots three back. (6) BLOCKING MY WAY comes from the Antonacci barn, is versatile and is capable of dropping multiple seconds.

Race 3

(1) REGAL BABE draws inside and hasn't been worse than second in 11 of 12 starts this season. He's just missed in each of his last two. (3) SHADOWBRIAND draws well, comes from the Darling barn and shows quick gate speed. (10) LITTLE BEN was a winner in his latest and will need to overcome post 10. He recently entered the Moreau barn and has been providing a better result.

Race 4

(10) SOMEWHEREFANCY comes from the Toscano barn, shows 1:51-1:52 speed at Chester and should fare out well in this contest. (3) THATS MY OPINION got the job done in his latest. He'll need to be better in this higher class, but has a good post and top connections in his favor. (2) NAKED CITY returns home to this circuit, is versatile and was a winner in this class three back.

Race 5

(4) ITS PAYDAY FRIDAY drops in class and was a winner two back. He has some back class, draws inside and gets Christoforou in the bike. (1) ROCKYS FIRST raced well in this class last week to finish third, gets the rail along with Condren in the bike. (3) MIDFIELD MAGIC is a much better horse than he's been showing and it may shine though tonight with the class drop. He has quick gate speed and likely will offer a price.

Race 6

(10) ATOMIC MILLION AM is a nine-time winner from 12 starts this season, has terrific gate speed and was a winner in this class recently. (7) BLACKTREE just missed last week in this class and has been a recent addition to the Moreau barn. (6) REASONABLE FORCE is fresh off a win and has a terrific overall record this season. Don't expect a price as he'll aim for back-to-back scores.

Race 7

(1) SOULFIL LINDY has won two straight, gets the rail and moves onto this circuit into the bottom class. (4) REGAL HOPE comes from the Robinson barn, shows quick speed and drops in class. Jamieson aboard is key! (7) DRAIN DADDY is a better horse than he's been showing and his back class may show up tonight.

Race 8

(8) SOME MAJOR BEACH has been much better since arriving in the Menary barn, is fresh off a win and has won two of his last three. (6) SHADOW PLACE was a winner two back in this class, shows quick speed and could be in store for a big effort. (9) WARP FACTOR THREE will need to mind his manners, but has a terrific late kick and comes from the O'Sullivan barn.

Race 9

(1) EXQUISITE GLIDE made a miscue in his most recent, but comes from the Alagna barn, gets the rail and was a winner two back in 1:54 2/5. (7) BODY TALK has hit the board in each of his last three and four of his last five. (2) DREAM ROCKER has been racing very consistently this season and draws inside. He has the speed, enjoys racing from behind and has been a constant threat in this class.

Race 10

(8) SHADIOS has won two straight in this class and four of his last five. (9) HALL BRO has been the picture of consistency this season and hasn't been worse than second in each of his last five. He moves onto this circuit, but shows quick speed and enjoys racing near the front. (3) LUCKY KING was a winner in this class three back and draws well. He has the speed and is a logical option for the traictor.

Race 11

(2) WIN ONE SOON draws inside and drops out of the Gold Series and Battle of Waterloo. He should appreciate the class relief in this contest. (6) ROBERT HILL comes from the Alagna barn, gets major class relief and is a top threat in this maiden class. He's versatile and gets Davis, Jr. aboard. (8) IF YOU WANT FIRE moves onto this circuit from racing in the NYSS. He comes from the Coleman barn, which can't be overlooked.

Race 12

(3) IDEALBEACH HANOVER may offer a price in the finale. It's a wide-open contest and he's due for a big effort and has been much better as of late. (7) A AND C ARTIST has been racing very well in each of his last two starts in this class and comes from the Auciello barn. He gets post relief and continues to pace in the 1:52 range. (5) MAJOR DEAGAN was a winner two back in this class and continues to offer a high price.
