Race 2

In a really tough race to handicap, (2) TWO BEAT should offer value and has room to improve second start back off a layoff.  (9) RIVER VALLEY PEARL has been competitive against better on the year.  (6) SHARKHART takes a huge drop down in competition but does get sent out for a low percentage pilot.

Race 3

(8) WICKED WINDY raced huge last week before making a break late.  If the 4-year-old trotting mare works out a smooth trip she can cash.  (2) MORELAND FLASHBACK has just been racing evenly but did show improvement getting second last week.  (1) QUEEN OF RACING gets the best starting post in a field full of question marks.

Race 4

(1) TONOLLI picks up a huge driver change with the rail.  (7) BRIGHT STONE is just now back in racing shape.  The pacer put in a decent effort last week against slightly better.  (6) FEELIN BEACHY three-year-old gelding has flashed a decent burst but looks to offer low value; use caution.

Race 5

(2) LIGHTENING WAR picks up the top driver with a great starting post.  If the 4-year-old minds his manners he can score.  (3) RETURN TO PARIS raced deceptively well a few days ago.  (4) ELLABUNDA has yet to win in thirty-three starts on the year but was very close at this level a few starts back.

Race 6

(5) ACTING CAPTAIN well bred gelding will look to make it two straight victories.  (1) ENEE WEENIE AND ME picks up a top driver with the best post.  (6) GOLD COAST MUSCLE faces significantly weaker but has just been racing evenly.

Race 7

(6) NORMA'S ROSE doesn't win often but did pop at a price last time down at this level.  (2) MR APOLLO has lots of room to improve second start back off over a month off.  (7) AUSTIN'S JON JON owns some back class when right.

Race 8

(2) UNTOLD LEGEND has done very well at this level on the year.  (5) PRINCEOFROCKNROLL picks up the top driver off a nice effort against better.  (1) MODEL NINETYFOUR should be in line for a great trip up close.

Race 9

(6) POW CHICKA POW POW picks up a huge driver change down in class.  (5) SEBOOMOOK KATAHDIN has yet to win on the year and faces tougher; use underneath.  (4) HEARTLAND DESIRE has shown some signs of life in his last two.

Race 10

In one of the toughest races to gauge on the card, (9) ROSE RUN NELLIE should offer a nice price and shows a win at this level three back.  (7) AWESOMELY AWESOME trotting mare can threaten if she gets an easy lead; driver's choice.  (1) SEDUCE A STRANGER gets the best post off an easy win.

Race 11

(3) CAMART HANOVER has been competitive against much tougher on the year.  (2) LIGHTNINGINTHESKY has a very poor win percentage over the last two years; use underneath.  (1) WINTER CRUISE gets the best post in an inconsistent field.

Race 12

(6) TRENTS RINGER has room to improve third start back off the layoff.  (4) T K SERA SERA looked to be on the right track before the miscue last start.  (1) SNOWSON five-year-old was really short in the qualifier and might need a start.

Race 13

(5) MECHANICAL ART will offer a much better price this week but will need to rebound with a much better effort.  (4) MORELAND FLASH would be the horse to beat with a different driver.  (2) BEANS AND WEENIES has fallen quite a bit from earlier in the year; use underneath.

Race 14

(1) NOAH'S SHARK picks up the top driver with the best post.  (3) MAC'S DEVIL is capable of a good burst of speed but gets sent out for a low percentage pilot.  (9) TERROR OF THETRACK has popped at big prices before at this level.

Race 15

(9) MYSTICAL BAY adds lasix for the first time off a decent qualifier.  The 3-year-old filly finds a very soft spot to do some damage.  (1) TANGO BAYAMA was terrible last start in this same spot.  The pacer does pick up a positive driver change.  (6) HOT MANDY has yet to win on the year; use underneath.
