Race 1

(8) SKYWAY COBRA four-year-old looks to have a lot of ability swooping the field from the eight-hole in his career debut.  (9) SR LILLYSTAR adds second-time lasix for a new barn.  (1) IMAGE OF BLITZ has yet to win in eighteen career starts; use underneath.

Race 2

(1) BRIGHT STONE freelegged pacing mare gets the best post in a weak and inconsistent field.  (4) WESTERN DIAL should probably considered the horse to beat but needs a good setup.  (7) OAKLEY DOAKLEY will look to make it two straight at this level; threat.

Race 3

(5) PORSCHE GIBSON looks terrible on paper but if the trotting gelding can mind his manners he can upset at a price.  (9) LIBERTY BEACH has been facing much tougher.  The 5-year-old mare picks up a top driver and just needs to work out a good trip from the second tier.  (1) OVERWHAT gets the best post down in class.

Race 4

In a really tough race to handicap, (2) LETS BE TRUTHFUL gets sent out for a low percentage pilot but will offer a big price in a very soft field.  (1) CHROME SEELSTER comes off a scratch and has had trouble winning at this level but does benefit from the best post.  (5) RIDGE PARK has not won a race in a very long time.  In the right scenario he can hit the ticket.

Race 5

(7) MARGARITA MAN has been overmatched in two straight.  The 10-year-old trotter should find this bunch much more to his liking.  (3) CABO has been knocking on the door at this level.  (9) VAYA CON DIOS is very inconsistent from week to week.  A good effort puts him in the mix.

Race 6

In another wide open and evenly matched race, (9) SOUTHWIND JOKER gets a monster morning line and shows some close efforts against slightly better.  (6) TALBOTCREEK ARMANI has question marks coming off a scratch; command a price.  (1) PRO DUECE couldn't beat a weaker bunch two back off of easy fractions; use underneath.

Race 7

(1) RED ROCKS gets the best post with a big driver change; fires early.  (6) PARNELL is capable of trotting a good mile with a smooth trip.  (2) FORT COMMANDER gelding hasn't won at this level in quite some time.

Race 8

(6) J C ONTHEBEACH doesn't come into the race in the best form but is facing significantly weaker.  (9) OK FERRARI bumps up in class against tougher.  The 7-year-old is better than what he shows on paper.  (4) KWIK MAC comes into the race off a scratch but has been competitive at this level in recent efforts.

Race 9

(5) WISHIN IWAS FISHIN looks to offer the best price of the contenders.  (2) SOULFUL DELIGHT nine-year-old trotter owns tons of back class and comes off an easy victory.  (6) BOOYAH TJ trotter owns a big burst of speed when timed right.

Race 10

(1) TWINKLE LIKE ASTAR will look to make it three straight wins win racing at this level.  (4) BOURBANS BEST pacer has not been good in his last few starts.  The 10-year-old does drop down a notch but needs a turnaround.  (9) GIUSEPPE MOLLUSCA has room to improve with a start over the track.

Race 11

(4) WELLTHEREYOUGO owns a slight class edge on the field.  (1) SHAGUAR has lots of room to improve second start back off the layoff.  The pacer adds second time lasix with the best post.  (3) AIRGUITAR ROCKSTAR burned cash last out against tougher.  The 9-year-old drops in class and is one of the horses to beat.

Race 12

(2) CRANK IT UP was heavily bet against better last start.  The pacer picks up a good driver change and will look to play 'catch me if you can'.  (3) BREAKIN THE LAW will need a complete turnaround from last week but does show some decent lines.  (7) ELOCUTIONIST takes a big drop in class with a top driver.

Race 13

(2) POW CHICKA POW POW drops back down to a much easier spot.  (1) JUMPIN JACK J rarely wins but does get the best post; use underneath.  (9) MODEL NINETYFOUR needs a good setup and a smooth trip to hit the ticket.

Race 14

In a field full of question marks, (5) FUDGE didn't win in 2016 but finds a suspect bunch.  (2) NATHAN picks up a good driver change with a nice starting post.  (3) LOGAN COUNTY RALPH is very inconsistent week to week.  A good effort puts him close.

Race 15

(9) ELDON MURRAY beat a decent field three back showing good closing ability.  (1) CLASSIC DRAGON gets the best post and was a winner win last seen at this level.  (5) TEST OF WILL shows decent efforts but needs more to hit the top spot.
