Race 1

(7) CONTECH looks terrible on paper but has the ability to pull a huge upset when he decides to trot.  (8) MISS EVA CASH mare shows two breaks in a row but finds a suspect field and could be a player late.  (1) DOUBLE A GLORIA has lacked stamina late and will offer low value but looks to be trotting faster than most of the field.

Race 2

In a really weak field  (4) AMAZING SUZY raced well and has something to build on after a year layoff.   (1) GLIDED TOWARDS ME comes off a win and has proven connections.   (2) RENATA gets sent out for a new trainer and faces easier.

Race 3

(2) TIMER makes his second start for a new trainer and keeps a top driver.  (1) ROSE RUN JERIAH is just now rounding into racing shape, gets the best post, and should have more to offer.  (4) ON YOU BRIT flashed some ability last out but is probably best used underneath.

Race 4

(4) PLAYMAKER well bred pacer has the most upside in the race and has a big burst of speed.  (1) UBETTERUBETTERUBET gets a different pilot and looks to be one of few contenders in the race.  (9) SLOT ARTIST could be in line for an ideal ground saving trip before shaking loose late.

Race 5

(9) BUILDING WEALTH veteran trotter went a game mile last out from a tough post.  (7) VESPER AS mare needs some racing luck but finds a wide-open field.  (5) CRAZY JESSE was much improved in the qualifier and could be sitting on a better effort.

Race 6

(6) GALLANT GEORGE looks terrible on paper but finds a really weak and inconsistent field.   (7) FLAWLESS ELEGANCE two-year-old faces older but did show a decent burst of speed.  (5) SMOKE'N STORMS only has one lifetime win but could hit the ticket underneath.

Race 7

(1) CAPTAIN SCRUFFY flashed some talent last out despite the miscue.  The pacer gets the best post and looks to offer a fair price.  (4) GRAMMA'S STAR lightly raced pacer hasn't quite figured it out but could get on track against a suspect bunch.  (2) LOGANS A WINNER could be in line for a nice trip but is best used underneath.

Race 8

(4) IRON N STEEL is 0 for the year but had been competitive against much better.  (2) FOREVER HAPPY is another veteran that rarely wins; use caution.  (3) BEAU JET finds a suspect field and was the driver's choice.

Race 9

In a very tough race to handicap (9) CLASSICAL LOVE  needs to work out a trip but does own some ability.  (2) TWIGHLIGHT METEOR tries softer at a different track; threat.  (3) TUSCARORA BLUEROAN races better forwardly placed and has the right guy holding the lines.

Race 10

(1) BASILIO BLUE CHIP went a huge mile last out and will be tough to beat with a similar effort.  (2) ART'S BOY gelding raced gamely last out just missing and is now making his third start back off a layoff.  (4) BONNERS CREEK just missed at this level last out going a tough trip; threat.

Race 11

In a weak and inconsistent field (4) SHADY TOWN will offer the right price in a wide open race.  (3) BROTHER BUD was an easy winner down in class but now faces better.  (1) WINSMITH BRIANNA draws the rail and should be in line for a smooth trip.

Race 12

(2) MISS RILEY mare just missed last out for an inconsistent trainer; threat.  (7) BROADWAY BOUND well bred trotter was an easy winner at this level last out and needed the start.  (9) EAGLE JEAN will need to stay trotting but could hit the board at a big price.

Race 13

(1) PROMISED THE MOON was much better last out closing decent ground from a tough starting post.  (4) CERVANTE BLUESTONE has more ability than his last start and will look to rebound at a price; threat.  (8) FIRMS RANDSOME needs to find a way into the race but could hit the bottom of the ticket.

Race 14

(1) SLATTS gets a huge driver change along with the best post.  (6) ROBIN DONTGET will need some racing luck to hit the top spot but could pass some horses late; use underneath.  (2) CAPTAIN JACK has just been racing evenly but finds a weak field.

Race 15

(4) MELVIN'S DREAM could be hit or miss but his best is good enough.  (3) QUICK KIL just missed at a price last start and would be a huge threat with a similar effort.  (1) RULING V C N gelding went a big three quarters of a mile before tiring and just needs to ration out his speed.
