Race 1

(4) NORDIC VENTURE first time out for new connections who hit at a high percentage in this scenario.   (2) OLIVIA'S JEWEL trotting mare made a break last start but would probably hit the ticket if she stays flat.  (5) COLBY D faces tough competition but could get a decent spot out of the gate; use underneath.

Race 2

(6) CHASE THE SUN is on a roll and will be tough to deny with a repeat of his last two efforts.  (5) SANTA'S SPECIAL pacer has a bunch of positives going for him including third start back off a layoff and picks up the top driver.  (4) ALL POWERFUL has been pacing some good miles but needs a smooth trip.

Race 3

(6) MR JESSE gelding gets sent out for the top trainer in the country and faces an easier field than his last.  (5) SOULFUL DELIGHT has tons of back class and makes his first start for new connections.  (4) LASER LUCY also owns some back class and can trot up a storm when ready.

Race 4

(1) CULLENS BLUE JEAN takes a big drop in class, picks up the top driver, and gets the best post; short price.  (2) NDANA FAVORITE trainer is sending out some decent winners recently but would need more to upset the favorite.  (3) KEN UBR DREAM has just been racing evenly but gets a good post; use underneath.

Race 5

(1) HUXLEY just about made more money last year than the entire field put together.  The pacer has yet to get on track in 2014 but could do just that in a weak field.  (6) MATT'S JACK went a big effort last out and could be the only threat to the top choice.  (5) JUMPIN JACK J was an easy winner at this level last out after getting a fast pace to close into.

Race 6

(1) IWILLDOWHATIDO drops out of the Open, should offer the better price, and looks to be in line for a great trip.  (2) I KNOW YOUR LOOKIN is on a roll but faces a better field; vulnerable late.  (3) FORTUNE'S JENNA trainer is on fire and the pacer has been racing gamely; threat.

Race 7

(6) COACH KEN can really crank it up at times and could get a fast pace to chase.  (4) COWBOY ROUNDUP has yet to win in nine starts but has been knocking on the door and showed a new element of leaving off the gate last race.  (2) RIGHT ON TIME picks up the top driver in a wide open race.

Race 8

(2) ANNIE'S MASTER mare raced gamely from a very tough post and just needs to ration out her speed early for a victory.  (6) ZORGWIJK HEAVENLY is the class of the field but gets sent out for a low percentage driver. (1) HIGH STAKES BANKER has been sharp in his last two efforts and could be in a good spot turning for home.

Race 9

In a field with two contenders (5) ROCKIN FINISH owns the most class in the field, needed his last start and might offer a generous price.  (7) JUSTIFIED impeccably bred gelding makes his first start in a powerful barn, however the 6-year-old pacer has a history of not shipping well; use caution.  (6) NATHAN FEELSGOOD returned locally and raced well.

Race 10

(2) LUKE HENRY has been on fire in a new barn and looks to make it three in a row.  (9) BLACK ACE HANOVER was sent down the road last out but is hampered by the second tier.  (1) COLD BATH has good gate speed and looks to be set for a pocket trip.

Race 11

(5) ACTION BROADWAY million dollar winner looks to be back on her game and gets a huge post edge on her main rival.  (8) ROSE RUN LOGAN has won seven of eight but will need to overcome the worst post against a rival that looks to be primed for a big effort.  (4) NORMA'S ROSE has been racing much better lately and will try and fly off the gate for position.

Race 12

In a really tough race to handicap (1) PLAYERS BALL has been pacing consistent miles and will probably protect position from the rail.  (2) FLYING METRO bumps up in class for an inconsistent trainer.  The 6-year-old was a red hot driver's choice and will also be winging early.  (4) CRAIG MICHEAL burned a lot of cash last out and has just been racing evenly; command a price.

Race 13

(6) HERBIE L gets a big morning line and a huge driver change.  The trotter would be a huge threat forwardly placed.  (1) ABUNDASASS has broke in four of five lines on paper.  The trotter has ability if he stays on gait. (5) KAHOKU faces significantly less but looks to offer low value with a suspect driver.

Race 14

(8) GENUINE STAR N was an impressive winner in a new barn first start and with any kind of repeat effort will make it two in a row from the worst post.  (4) KENNAIRN LIFE SIGN is the dropper in the race and should the top choice not get an easy lead could be dangerous.  (1) THE CLASSIC Z TAM was a game winner last out but does bump up in class and would need much more to hit the top spot.

Race 15

(6) STATE OF THE UNION gets a good driver change but has a tendency to be full of pace or come up completely empty.  (5) MOSH PIT was a game winner against a similar bunch last race but probably wont get to control it like in his recent win.  (1) LOST JEWELS this will most likely be your leader at the top of the lane but should probably be used underneath.
