Race 2

(5) EDIT picks up a huge driver change down in class.  (1) VICTORY CANDY MAN was the top driver's choice and has the gate speed to secure a nice trip up close.  (9) SENOR GLIDE drops down in class and should be primed for a better effort after a year layoff.

Race 3

(3) FOREVER GOOD has been facing tougher and just needs a trouble-free trip.  (1) THISWAYORTHEHIGHWWY gelding has been knocking on the door and looks to be ready for a big effort from the rail.  (5) TOLEDO BEND GATOR can crank it up late and just needs a fast pace to close into for a chance late.

Race 4

(3) HEZA RUBE four-year-old gelding is really fast when he stays trotting.  (2) TEAM ZORDIN has been giving good efforts hitting the board at a high percentage.  (4) ANNIE'S ROCKETMAN morning line favorite makes his first start off a six week layoff but did put in an excellent qualifier and adds first time lasix.

Race 5

(6) JAGGER BLUE CHIP has been on a big roll and will look to get to the top early.  (1) TEST OF WILL gets sent out for a hot barn and should get a crack at the top choice late.  (2) CRAIG MICHAEL should offer a big price and can hit the ticket underneath with some racing luck.

Race 6

(2) MARY'S DARVIN picks back up the regular pilot and is better than this group with an honest pace to close into.  (9) MAGICAL VICTORY has been improved over the last few months and should get a good spot out of the gate; threat.  (1) NORMAS ROSE mare isn't what she used to be, but is capable of trotting a good mile.

Race 7

(1) CHARLIE B has shown the ability to pace big miles and gets the top driver with the best post.  (3) LITE ME UP eleven-year-old stallion makes his second start off a layoff and was competitive against much better earlier in the year.  (2) BALLISTIC TIP owns a big burst of speed and drops in class.

Race 8

(1) ROSSRIDGE HANDSOME picks back up the better driver and will be used very aggressively from the best post.   (2) BOLERO ANDREW has been on fire for the current connections; threat.  (3) ART'S ON FIRE has raced well in the series and just needs a smooth trip for another in the money finish.

Race 9

(8) COUNT ME IN gets sent out for the top trainer in the country for the first time.  The connections are lethal in this scenario.  (6) THE NORTHERN DUDE nice-looking trotter won't have to work as hard to get an early lead.  (7) VICTORY IS COMING was much improved with the top pilot but will need much more to compete with the top choice.

Race 10

(6) ARTIST NIGHT four-year-old pacer gets a post edge on most of his main rivals.  (5) P L DRAGON was the driver's choice coming off a big effort.  (8) FANCY CREEK ELUSIV will look to make it three straight but will need more from a tough post; use underneath

Race 11

(4) RUSTY'S NO FOOL will be tough to beat with an easy early lead; big chance.  (5) IN A CRAZE comes into the race off a nice victory out east and is one of few threats to the top choice.  (7) LITTLE PRINCE has been knocking on the door for a hot trainer but has a lot of work to do.

Race 12

(6) WHIT six-year-old stallion has been improving in a new barn and should offer fair value.  (9) SOUTH JERSEY HONEY trotting mare takes a good drop in class and was a game winner at this level a few starts ago.   (3) WILD RIDE gets a negative barn change and will likely offer low value; command a price.

Race 13

(2) TRUE TO MACH drops out of the Open where he was competitive the start prior.  (1) GREAT AMERICAN sophomore pacer has been on a roll but will need to step his game up against better.  (4) LOST JEWELS gelding has the ability and just needs a good setup for a chance at a piece late.

Race 14

(9) ACTION METRO MAX finally gets some post relief and should be a big player at this level.  (4) FANTASY PAN gelding makes his third start in a hot barn and just missed last out.  (3) CAMART HANOVER gelding keeps the top driver in a wide open race.

Race 15

(9) IRA'S BIG GUY has been unstoppable at this level in his last two; short price.  (2) MASTER STROKE gelding looks terrible on paper but has had some tough racing luck in his last two.  (1) WINYARD HANOVER makes his second start back off a layoff and adds first time lasix.

Race 16

(3) BOILER BREES gets a monster driver change and also gets sent out first start for a hot trainer.  (1) DANGER HI JOLTAGE steps up in class after a dominating wire to wire win; fires early.  (2) MAJIK MASTER is one of few who's been competitive at this level and should offer a big price.
