Race 2

(6) TAGMASTER owns good gate speed and will offer a big price with the top driver; fires early.   (1) HALL OF MUSCLES gets sent out for proven connections off a nice victory but does get a negative driver change.   (2) CABO fits nicely in the series and looks to be in line for a nice trip up close.

Race 3

(3) HUNT N SAVE gelding makes his third start back off a layoff and should be primed for an improved effort.  (2) MARIGOLD BLOOM lightly raced filly was the top driver's choice and is one of few with upside in the race.  (1) STAR MASTER FOX owns a win against similar and gets the best post.

Race 4

(1) CHROME SEELSTER takes a huge drop in competition, gets the best post, and will be tough to keep out of the top few spots.  (5) HE'S A BEACHBOY has made the most money on the year and is capable of pacing a good mile.  (2) RULING V C N gelding makes his first start in a new barn and should be in line for a decent trip.

Race 5

(5) VICTORINTHEVALLEY five-year-old trotter raced gamely last out and will look to get the jump on the field early.  (2) LIFE LONG HANOVER doesn't look good on paper but the trotting gelding has beaten better on the year; threat.  (7) GET PACKIN will offer low value and could be in trouble if the 12-year-old doesn't get an easy lead; use caution.

Race 6

(2) HEEZA NORDIC looks to be the horse to beat in the series winning for fun last out.  (1) ST ELIAN'S FIRE filly gets the best post and owns some ability.  (8) ZORGWIJK IMPACT has room to improve second start for new connections.

Race 7

(3) U BETTOR WATCH OUT has been second in four straight but looks to be tough in a weak field.  (9) CHEEKY FOOL held off the top choice last out but will need a smooth trip for a chance late.  (1) AUTO PILOT rarely wins and is best used underneath.

Race 8

(2) LUCKY CHARM was an easy winner at this level first start in a new barn last out and could have more to offer.  (9) TABULATOR could be in a decent spot turning for home with some racing luck.  (1) STARBUX EDEN mare owns some back class and probably needed the start over the track last week.

Race 9

(1) BLACK ACE HANOVER gets sent out first start in a new barn for a trainer that gets results in that scenario; driver's choice. (2) ASTOUNDING HANOVER is in the same boat as the top choice and has room to improve off a nice effort.  (6) ROCK THE WIND gelding could be the sleeper in the race and could have an excuse last out with the off track.

Race 10

In a really weak field (3) MORELAND FLASH bumps up in class but will be tough to beat with a similar effort to his last start.  (1) KENNAIRN LIFE SIGN gets the best post and has been pacing some decent miles.  (9) LIGHTNINGINTHESKY comes off a big win that was set up with a fast half; command a price.

Race 11

(3) REALLY REALY SWEET was much improved last out and could get an easy lead with a race devoid of early speed.  (1) SAINTFRANCIS raced well against similar last out; threat.   (9) DAY TO DAY four-year-old is inconsistent from week to week but is capable of a good effort.

Race 12

In a field full of inconsistent trotters (5) WILD NORDIC should offer a big price an has been competitive against better on the year.  (1) BROADWAY BOUND seven-year-old gets the best post and takes a significant drop in class.  (4) TALLERTHANWOODY adds lasix for the second time but could need a start off a layoff.

Race 13

(2) BLACKHAWK LOOKOUT keeps the top driver and gets sent out for proven connections in a weak field.  (4) TIM'S FINALE gelding owns a good brush when timed right and raced well first start over the track.  (1) MOTOMAN raced well at a big price last out and finds a similar field.

Race 14

(8) DETROITER will look to rebound after burning cash last out.  The pacer should offer better value and just needs to find a way into the race.  (4) STRAIGHT MAGIC adds second time lasix and could show some improvement.  (3) FLYING MINDALE has just been racing evenly but does find a weak field.

Race 15

(2) ROUNTUIT BLUEGRASS will look to make it three straight at this level and has been impressive.  (1) MAGIC MANNY has been racing gamely but gets a negative barn change; command a price.  (6) MOVIN N SHAKIN is in the same boat as the top choice but will need more.

Race 16

(1) CULLENS BLUE JEAN owns back class on the field and has beaten much better on the year.  (4) PRO DUECE could be one of few threats to the top choice with some racing luck.  (5) TIDEWATER TOMAHAWK went a big effort last out but faces tougher; use underneath.
