Race 2

(6) CHICKENWITHABANJO lightly raced pacer owns some ability and is the horse to beat with a smooth trip.  (9) DREAMY FELLA comes into the race off a nice qualifier showing improvement.  (8) BEAUTIFUL RED gets a tough post but does own a gate speed.

Race 3

(9) MCVICAR will look to make it three wins in five career starts against a suspect bunch.  (5) MOLLY'S IMAGE finally stayed trotting in the qualifier.  The 5-year-old mare should offer a good price and can hit the board if she minds her manners.  (4) FLAWLESS ELEGANCE has just been racing evenly but picks up a significant driver change.

Race 4

(6) CAMMILICIOUS had a nightmare trip last week.  If the filly gets a good setup she can score.  (5) GOOD ROBERTA needs some racing luck but should offer value in a tough race to gauge.  (4) BOOTYSHAKERBAKER gets sent out for a low percentage pilot; use underneath.

Race 5

(1) BLUE JACKET LUKE probably owns the most ability but has a tendency to make miscues.  (4) WATCHA GOT ABBY filly has been outkicked late in two straight but can win with an early breather up front.  (5) ABES EARL owns wins against similar; threat.

Race 6

(4) STRONG PLAYIN KING might have finally figured it out and can probably only beat himself.  (1) Q COBRA JET will look to make it three wins in four starts; threat.  (5) UNCLE DONNIE is one of three horses coming into the race off a victory.

Race 7

(9) BUZZEN GARLAND owns a big burst of speed and should find this spot much easier.  (2) MONARCH BLUECHIP could be one of few threats to the top choice looking to make it three straight.  (4) CALLIT AS U SEE IT filly does just enough to get a piece most of the time; use underneath.

Race 8

(1) DANNYS MAN just missed at this level last out racing gamely.  (8) ARMBRO DOMI takes a significant drop in class.  (5) SIR BARTON has been competitive at this level but needs a lot of racing luck to hit the top spot.

Race 9

(8) DOUBLESHOTOFCROWN has been out-closed in two straight but faces slightly weaker; fires early.   (2) TOPVILLE CORVETTE gets sent out for a low percentage pilot but has shown good closing ability.  (3) IMALLEXCITED had no excuse last week off an easy middle half; command a price.

Race 10

In a wide open and evenly matched race, (1) PANDAPOCKET benefits from the best post and will be used aggressively.  (3) FAITH'S TATTLER is 0 for the year but should offer a big price.  The pacer looks to be in line for a ground saving trip up close.  (2) CF STING REI has just been racing evenly; use underneath.

Race 11

(5) ANASTASIA WHINNIE dropped and popped last week and will look to take no prisoners again; fires early.  (9) TALLADEGA HANOVER has been competitive against much better on the year; threat. (Note: top choice NANOHIO was an early scratch).

Race 12

In a weak field full of question marks, (6) ARIANNA HALL has been facing much tougher and is versatile.  (7) AISLING well bred trotter owns tons of back class and will offer a big price down in class.  (8) AXLE has made the most money in the field on the year but needs a good setup; use underneath.

Race 13

(4) OK GERONIMO will look to make it two straight at this level.  (1) FLYING METRO gets the best post and looks to be in line for a perfect pocket trip.   (3) ZEBS CAM BO drops down a notch but is best used underneath.

Race 14

(9) IYAMWHATISHAM races inconsistently from week to week but a good effort puts him in the mix.  (6) PRIME TIME POPPA scored down in class off a long layoff and has room to improve; threat.  (1) ETERNAL RULER gets the best post in a tough race to gauge.

Race 15

(9) AUTO PILOT rarely wins but is capable of pacing a good mile from time to time.  (3) UP ALL NIGHT takes a big dropdown to the bottom level; threat.  (1) DO IT DOC'S WAY veteran pacer is better than what he shows on paper.
