Best Bet: MORELAND FLASH (13th)

Race 1

(6) ROCKIN FINISH raced super last out beating a very game opponent.  The gelding is versatile and should be ready for another big effort third start off the bench.  (4) LYONS JOSEPHJNR has the post edge on his main rivals and might try and get the jump early.  (5) MYBROTHERGEORGE has been really good for a new trainer but will need more to get by the top choice.

Race 2

(6) EDIT faces a weak group and just needs to avoid an early speed duel.  (1) ANNIE'S MASTER mare races her best upfront and looks to be in line for a good trip; vulnerable late.  (3) BUCKEYE PATTY was better than this field at times last year and looks to just now be in racing shape.

Race 3

In a field of two contenders (5) CAN HE GO has been facing some tough customers and benefits from a red-hot top driver.  (4) BIG JER is the only threat to the top choice, and already has a fast win over the track.  (6) JS TANGO could get to follow one of the contenders and pass some horses late; use underneath.

Race 4

(2) ELDON MURRAY pacer makes his third start back off a layoff down in class.  The gelding faces an easier bunch and picks up an aggressive driver.  (4) MY LIFES DESIRE has just been racing evenly but does pick up the top driver in a suspect field.  (5) HALLIN GATOR has yet to win on the year but has been showing improvement.

Race 5

(2) ZORGWIJK HEAVENLY has been a new trotter with a better driver, gets a good post, and will be tough to beat with any kind of trip.  (6) WIND SURFER got a confidence-boosting win last out and will be firing early.  (1) PARTYATYOURPLACE draws the rail off a victory but now faces much tougher; use underneath.

Race 6

(5) FUDGE comes off a scratch but the connections have got a couple wins in this scenario recently.  The well-bred gelding should offer a big price in a wide open field.  (6) FOX VALLEY MERCURY has been knocking on the door and faces an easier field.  (3) CMR WINDMACH could possibly be overbet based off his lines but has not been competitive in his last two; command a price.

Race 7

(5) TAKE A WALK  well-bred stallion had a good first start off a scratch against a tough field.  The pacer drops in class and finds a spot to do some damage.  (2) MIDNIGHT DRAGON also drops in class, and gets a good post to fire early.  (3) MAJIK MASTER owns a suspect record this year but has been pacing some decent miles; needs a trip.

Race 8

(5) MAN HE CAN SKOOT has yet to find a groove this year but looks to be tough to beat against this bunch.   (2) BLACK ACE HANOVER just missed last out and will be winging off the gate.  (7) FOREVER JUST gets sent out for a powerful barn but needs some racing luck posted outside.

Race 9

(7) ROSE RUN LOGAN will be going for nine wins in ten starts; short price.  (6) JULIANS CAESAR has a chance to spoil the party if the trotter fires for position going out with the favorite.  (1) NORMA'S ROSE owns good gate speed and should have a great chance to hit the ticket with the right fractions.

Race 10

(3) CASH' EM IN will be looking to do just that in a hot barn and was the top driver's choice.  (6) GOODNITE has been facing much better and should be in a good spot turning for home.  (9) GENUINE STAR N has been on fire for the new connections but could be hampered by the second tier.

Race 11

(4) ARGON FIRE had been racing gamely and came back sharp off a scratch a few weeks ago.  The well-bred gelding finds a field he's beat up on before.  (5) BLESSING STONE gelding has been huge on the front end; check the driver's twitter account to see if he's blasting off the gate.  (2) MOSH PIT top driver opted off but the well-bred gelding has been racing gamely.

Race 12

(5) EASY STRENGTH takes a significant drop in class and should be on the move early.  (3) CALLING A VICTORY gets sent out for a barn that has had some nice recent winners and could be the only threat to the top choice.  (6) CADILLAC KID could be considered underneath at price.

Race 13

(3) MORELAND FLASH gelding's line on paper looks bad but he was taken out of the race by a horse who stopped in his face after refusing to let him go to the lead.  The pacer bumps up in class slightly but should be a solid play on top.  (9) ALLAMERICAN JUNIOR the morning line favorite looks to be vulnerable from not having his nose on the gate.  (2) DEBT CONSOLIRAIDER pacer is inconsistent from week to week but has jumped up with big efforts from time to time.

Race 14

(6) REITED XX just missed last out and has been getting better in a new barn.  (3) MATT'S JACK has just been racing evenly and looks to offer low value; use caution.  (5) FIERCE DESIRE finds an evenly matched race and just needs a smooth trip for a piece.
