Race 1

(6) SKYWAY COBRA four-year-old is much the best if he stays trotting; short price.  (3) NEW KID IN TOWN could be one of few threats in the race with an easy early lead.  (1) HARLAND benefits from the top driver along with the best post.

Race 2

(9) OAKLEY DOAKLEY gelding should be much tighter with a few starts under his belt after a long layoff.  (1) OVERDRIVE is one of the best horses in the race but needs a competent drive from a low percentage pilot.  (2) ADIOS AMIGOS four-year-old pacer comes off a miscue but was close at this level the start prior.

Race 3

(6) EMILENE'S FUTURE broke at the start last week as the favorite.  The trotting mare drops down to the bottom level and just needs to mind her manners.  (9) B KEEPER twelve-year-old doesn't win often but can close with a decent setup.  (5) SPIES AND LIES has been competitive against better but needs a turn around.

Race 4

In a weak and inconsistent field, (6) DERINGER GUN is one of three droppers in the race.  The pacer needs a fast pace to close into for his best chance.  (5) HEARTLAND DESIRE has burned lots of cash at this track so far; use caution.  (8) THE WARDEN might be able to do some damage should the pacer find a way into the race.

Race 5

(5) RED FALKOR couldn't seal the deal against weaker last time but there isn't much in this field.  (4) ROMPAWAY ELVIS owns a decent burst when timed right.  (9) VAYA CON DIOS is one of few in the race that has been competitive at this level but needs to work out a smooth trip from the second tier.

Race 6

(3) HE ROCKS THE MOON the effort two back would be more than enough to handle this bunch.  (1) ONEDIN MACH N has room to improve third start out for a new barn with the best post.  (9) PRO DUECE has been facing much tougher but seems to always come up short.

Race 7

(7) BLUE SWAN five-year-old was close against slightly better last week.  (9) FORT COMMANDER also just missed at this level last start.  (1) HOORAY KATIE doesn't win often but picks up a significant driver change.

Race 8

(7) SHAGUAR is just now back in racing shape and was close at a big price last start.  (1) I AM WILL shows a win at this level.  The six-year-old finds a very weak bunch and gets the best post.  (4) COACH KEN has just been racing evenly but drops down in class.

Race 9

(5) CERVEZA DINERO takes a huge drop down in competition with the top driver.  (9) FAWN DE J might have finally snapped out of a small funk the well bred trotter was in; threat.  (8) HARD TO ROCK THIS will offer a big price and can hit the ticket underneath with a good effort.

Race 10

In the weakest field on the card, (4) FEELIN BEACHY comes off a nice effort at this level coming from way back to finish second.  (1) BRIGHT STONE has also been competitive against similar.  (9) FANTASTIC PLAYER looks terrible on paper but will offer a monster price; use underneath.

Race 11

(5) WAITINGFORTHISONE shows some decent efforts but no wins in quite some time.  The pacer has been facing tougher and can score with a smooth trip.  (4) WELL DID drops down to the bottom class and should be closer turning for home.  (3) HIGH AND TIGHT shows some competitive miles against tougher; threat.

Race 12

(9) EXOTIC MATTJESTY paced a really nice mile from a tough spot last week. (4) ARTISTIC DIRECTOR gets sent out first start for capable connections.  (5) AIRGUITAR ROCKSTAR had no excuse last two starts falling apart late; use underneath.

Race 13

(1) VILLAGE JACKSON gets the best post and shows wins against better.  (9) TWINKLE LIKE ASTAR looks to be in a perfect stalking spot up close.  (3) KWIK MAC has been very competitive against similar; threat.

Race 14

(3) HANGON MAN went to fast early last start.  If the 7-year-old can ration out his speed he can win.  (7) CANADIAN TOUCH when the gelding pacer stays pacing he is fast enough to beat this bunch.  (9) CAMCUN picks up a huge driver change; threat.

Race 15

(6) BUCKETHEAD FRED gets sent out for a provisional pilot but is one of the better horses in the race.  (5) IDEAL ROWAN just missed at this level two back.  (9) P L DRAGON mad the most money of the field last year and just needs a good setup for a shot late.

Race 16

(5) ACTION O SO ROYAL veteran pacer makes his first start for new connections.  The 8-year-old will offer a big price against a suspect bunch.  (1) HERE COMES HUDD was a game winner when last seen at this level.  (6) LIGHTNINGINTHESKY rarely wins but just missed last start showing a good late burst.
