Race 2

(1) SF TERRIFIC KISSER takes a big drop in class with the best post.  (4) NO SHENANIGANS is always a threat at this level and will look to set sail early.  (2) WARDOG HALL has been pacing some decent miles and should get a nice trip up close to the pace.

Race 3

(9) JESSE'S MESSENGER owns a ton of back class and drops from the Open; big chance.  (2) BOOKEM hasn't made a start in a month, however the trotter has a ton of ability when right.  (1) NORDIC VENTURE is having an excellent year but looks to need more to hit the top spot.

Race 4

(4) T RED seems to be hit or miss but has beaten much better on the year.  (3) RIGHT ON TIME has just been racing evenly but finds an ideal spot for a piece.  (1) SPUDCAM hasn't been competitive up in class but does get the best post to save some ground.

Race 5

(4) ANNIE'S ROCKETMAN gelding always gives an honest effort and will be firing early.  (6) SURE THING could need a start but did put in a nice qualifier and could show some nice trot late.  (5) PINE TAB has yet to win on the year but will most likely get a very aggressive drive against a softer bunch.

Race 6

(9) GLASS PACK veteran gelding has earned close to a million dollars.  If the pacer gets a smooth trip he's in the money.  (4) CASH'EM IN takes a significant drop but could offer low value and doesn't have to win.  (1) ARTS BOY gets a good post and has a touch of gate speed; use underneath.

Race 7

(2) NOBLE TRICK closed decent ground last out and should be involved earlier; threat.  (9) PRIME TIME POPPA six-year-old stallion faced a better field last start and paced a decent mile.  (3) OUR MCLOVIN gets a good driver change and should offer a fair price in a wide open race.

Race 8

(3) JS TANGO is on a roll but will need a big effort moving into the open.  (4) BETTOR'S CHOICE has been pacing some huge miles at Scioto; threat.  (5) COMICBOOK HERO gets sent out for the top barn in the country and owns a big burst of speed.

Race 9

(4) MYBROTHERGEORGE was sharp last out which could signal a return to his form earlier in the year. (1) BIGRISK impeccably bred stallion makes his first start for a new trainer.  The 4-year-old faces significantly less competition but is a question mark to get over the track.  (2) ACTION METRO MAX has found this level a bit steep; use underneath.

Race 10

(5) LONESOME ATTACK is capable of much better and is a huge threat should the pacer get an easy lead.  (2) JUST CROWNED shows a win against better and gets a much better starting spot with options. (9) GRANDE SEELSTER pacer was on fire last out and is tough to leave off the top if you watched his last effort.

Race 11

(7) MYTHICAL HALL gelding's tactical gate speed is his best friend; fires early.  (3) SUPER LUSTRE owns a big burst of speed for a hot barn and will be much closer turning for home.  (2) KAHOKU well bred trotter is very talented when he minds his manners; use underneath.

Race 12

(1) LOST JEWELS if the pacer offers a relatively fair price he's a good candidate to fire at.  The pacer gets big time post relief and has been better than his lines show.  (2) OSBORNE'S YANKEE has consistently been pacing good miles and looks to be in line for a decent trip.  (8) FOLLOW THROUGH gets a tough post off a scratch, but will offer a monster price and could pick up the pieces late with some racing luck.

Race 13

(1) KEYTOOURDREAMS will be looking to score taking no prisoners early for proven connections.  (2) IRISH ELITIST is capable of a big effort with the right trip.  (3) ALIGNED HANOVER needs racing luck to hit the ticket but will offer a huge price.

Race 14

In a tough race to handicap (9) GALEX has lots of question marks coming into the race, however could have the most ability.  (2) CAN REPEAT doesn't look the best on paper but finds a very inconsistent field.  (3) BET ON ART dropped and popped but will need more back up in class.

Race 15

(4) DUTCHTREAT HANOVER looks to be sitting on the lead or in the pocket.  (1) NUTMEGS GIGILO will be used very aggressively from the rail which could lead to some early fireworks.  (9) BASILIO BLUE CHIP will look to make it five straight, but the driver makes him a play against at a short price.
