Race 1

Race 2

(6) GOODNITE WILBUR has flashed some late speed last two and that puts him front and center against this crew. (1) ANSWER THE BELL sat in, closed mildly in latest. Has the rail and if he is going to get a win this year there is no better time or place. (9) DESIGNER CRUISE has one win two years and nearly 60 starts. Should be able to clear some early traffic and might be lucky tonight.

Race 3

(1) MUCKMUCKWOODCHUCK has no excuses this evening. After sucking in air the last two weeeks, he lands the pole and with the brush heading home he should romp. (3) JAY JAY REDSKY has late speed and will be moving through the lane. (5) FUTURE PAST made up a lot of ground after rough start. May have been able to overcome one break but two was too much to expect.

Race 4

(3) JP ORAZIO was uncovered too long in recent try and flashed some modest late foot in last. Should be along in time to revisit winners circle. (9) DOOWRAH OMELET has to clear early traffic but can rough it if he has to as witness by brave effort two back. (6) A J CRESS finished with good pace last two and cannot be ignored.

Race 5

(2) THE RAINCATCHER was second best two back, expired on the rim in last. Moves in and will give her best shot. (3) WHATSUPWITHTHAT beaten favorite suffered a very costly break in last and is the one to fear. (1) HIGH STAKES BANKER has the pole and only has to overcome breaking habit to be a force.

Race 6

(3) HELLO CARLO was nipped on the wire in down the road effort last time. No stranger to winning and if tighter, he can hold it all the way. (9) S MS TERMINATOR takse a substantial drop and might surprise if he gets away in good order from second tier. (5) S F SCORPION was parked the mile in last, never treatened and broke by the lane. Two previous were good second place finishes.

Race 7

(5) DUKE UH BRAVA went down the road quickly in last as the short priced favorite and wins if he can do it again. (1) DIGGERS REST N has the rail and needs some late life if the top one falters. (3) TYMAL TRITON showed signs of life in last coming wide in the final turn but flattened out. Will be a late factor for a share if he continues to improve.

Race 8

(1) SOUTHWIND RAMBO has discovered winning and seeks third straight. Faces better but has the rail. (9) FIXTHEDEFICIT should be away well following the top one. (5) CASINO ADVANTAGE closed with strong pace in last. Prior was a badly timed break while sitting pretty. Best effort is needed.

Race 9

(4) BELLES BECKY has had good success from this post two and three back. Should have the late speed necessary to squeak out a win. (9) EDIT worked out a good trip in last and was second best. (2) MORGANS MAJEST5IC could not last in most recent but has his share of wins in short career.

Race 10

(2) FOLLOW THROUGH finished well last two and has to be respected from the inside post. (4) ARTISTIC DREAMER was a nose short from the pocket in last. (7) GRINFROM C TO C wired the field from same post in latest outing. Faces better but earns a long look.

Race 11

(3) UF FAST FEELIN has won last two. Well bet and game in both, he is the one to beat. (4) SONICPEDIA has made costly breaks in two of last four but flat form tabs him as the one to fear. (9) TULFRA has been right there last two. Has performed well from similar post in recent past so do not ignore.

Race 12

(1) STAR CHIP has speed and rail and it worked for him in last as he romped home by three lengths. (7) HIGH GEAR WINNER will be tough if he gets a covered trip and the speed falters. (3) HAMMER OF JUSTICE has speed and an inside post. Should get away well, land a seat on the rail and will be heard from in the lane.

Race 13

(6) MIZUNO gets a shaky vote in shaky field of shaky veteran campaigners. Just seems to be faster than the whole gang at the present time. (4) FOUR STARZ Q has the four hole and a smidge of late speed. A smidge may be enough. (1) FRANCO NATURA N has the rail and should work out a trip. That should be enough to get him a long look.

Race 14

(2) DANGER HI JOLTAGE dominated in last in quick mile and huge margin. Cannot look past a romp like that. (4) CATCH THAT ANGEL has speed and if the top one cannot do it again, this guy can be the right one. (5) STONEBRIDGE ASTRO flashed strong late speed in last and can pounce if speed flounders.

Race 15

(2) MISTYS DIGNITY was the victim of a tough trip in last two and needs only get some racing luck to get it done. (3) SANDYS CANDY has late speed but should have more wins on his card. (1) BAY SHARK was used hard from post eight in last but proved to be a tired but game 2nd. The pole makes him a major force.
