Race 1 

(6) ALE ALE JANDRO gets a big driver change, will offer a nice price, and has shown the ability to trot a good mile.  (5) TYMAL BLING will look to make it three straight against a very suspect bunch.  (9) IMJISPINETANKU will also offer a big price and could be in line for a decent ground saving trip.

Race 2

(3) MYBROTHERGEORGE drops in class and has beaten much better on the year.  (1) ROYCE BLUE CHIP was the top driver's choice and gets sent out for a hot barn.  (7) BIGRISK impeccably bred stallion has had some trouble at this track from an outside post; use caution. 

Race 3 

(1)ANNIE'S ROCKETMAN adds lasix for the second time and should be ready for a much better effort second start back off the layoff.  (5) VICTORY CANDY MAN benefits from the top driver and early gate speed; threat.  (9) NORMA'S ROSE trotting mare owns back class but does her best racing upfront which doesn’t look like an option from the second tier; use underneath.

Race 4 

(1) ONHISHONOR HANOVER gelding picks up the top driver and will be used very aggressively from the rail.  (4) BAKKEN  paced a nice mile last out and should be primed for a good effort with a smooth trip.  (9) JW RACER has made the most money in the field on the year by far and has been facing slightly better. 

Race 5

(1) BLACKWOLF RUN well bred trotter raced big last out and probably needed the start over the track.  (5) EDIT was a game winner last week and could be one of few threats to the top choice.  (2) ZORGWIJK IMPACT nine-year-old stallion owns plenty of back class, gets post relief, and should offer a monster price for a top driver.

Race 6

(3) ROSSRIDGE HANDSOME paced a big mile last out pressed the whole way.  If the gelding can duplicate that effort he will be tough to beat.   (1) MIDNIGHT DRAGON has just been racing evenly but takes a good drop in class.  (2) YOULL THINK OF ME bumps up in class after a dominating win but probably needs more to hit the top spot.

Race 7 

(3) BEANS AND WEENIES doesn’t look the best on paper but has popped at big prices against better on the year.  (2) DANGER HI JOLTAGE comes off two huge efforts in a new barn.  (1) GREAT AMERICAN just missed last out against similar but looks to offer low value; use caution. 

Race 8 

(5) DVCFLYINGFRENCHMAN gelding paced a big mile last start and could be overlooked in an evenly matched field.  (1) ART'S ON FIRE gets sent out for capable connections from the best post.  The pacer was brutalized last out parked the mile but could get a piece with a smooth trip.  (2) STORMY WEST has been pacing some big miles and should be in the mix with a good effort. 

Race 9 

(9) S J BETTER DAYS gelding cannot be overlooked getting sent out for the top barn in the country for the first time; big chance.  (7) THE NORTHERN DUDE gelding has been overused in his last two but could find this spot easier.    (6) ACTION-BROADWAY classy mare is just now back in racing shape and should be ready for a better effort. 

Race 10 

(1) MYSTIC DESIRE well bred stallion will look to make it four wins in five starts; top driver's choice.  (5) FANCY CREEK ELUSIV top driver opted elsewhere but the 4-year-old has also been on a roll.  (6) P L DRAGON has been pacing some very fast miles and just missed at this level last out. 

Race 11 

(5) THISWAYORTHEHIGHWY gets sent out for red hot connections and will look to take no prisoners; fires early.  (3) JAGGER BLUE CHIP has been on a roll but does get sent out for new connections for the first time; use caution.  (1) FORTUNE'S JENNA always gives a good effort and gets the best post. 

Race 12 

(2) QUIK GROOM never had a chance last out from a tough post but has been racing gamely. (1)  CHEYENNE KNIGHT should have room to improve getting sent out first start off the claim for capable connections.  (3) RAISE THE GIN popped at a price last out against similar. 

Race 13 

(5) NOBLE FITCH nine-year-old gelding takes a big class hike but has shown big moves in his last two.  (4) KIASMA pacer is a threat but gets sent out for a very inconsistent trainer; command a price.  (9) BROWN TITAN bumps up in class off a good effort; use underneath.

Race 14 

(6) WINYARD HANOVER showed a big burst of speed last out and adds second-time lasix.  (8) WELLSAIDANDONE sophomore pacer has had a great year but needs to find a way into the race.  (7) SKULL OF ROSES dominated last out and has been competitive against better on the year. 

Race 15 

(4) IDBEGOODATTHAT has room to improve second start in a hot barn.  (3) CRY FOR CASH picks up a good driver change down in class.  (1) WESTERN RANGE takes a huge drop in class for an inconsistent trainer. 

Race 16 

(2) RAMBLING JET makes his first start for a new trainer in a wide open race.  (4) ROCK THE WIND heavy morning line favorite rarely wins; use caution.  (6) NUTMEGS GIGILO is capable at this level; threat.
