Race 1

(7) ERISTER HANOVER lightly raced trotter gets sent out for proven connections looking to make it three straight.  (5) MARKET TIMER can hit the board if he stays trotting; fires early.  (2) STUDENT NURSE filly is 0 for her career but has been knocking on the door against better.

Race 2

(7) STRONG PLAYIN KING just missed at this level last week showing a decent late burst.  (5) BEAUTIFUL RED filly has room to improve third start over the track.  (1) PRINCETON has just been racing evenly; use underneath.

Race 3

(7) FREEDOM RIDGE just missed last week and should be sharper third start back off a layoff.  (3) TRENTS RINGER has been facing much tougher but hasn't shown signs of life in a awhile.  (5) CADILLAC KID will offer a big price in an evenly matched race; threat.

Race 4

In a week and inconsistent field, (1) FLYING SOUTH gets the best post and has been racing gamely.  (2) Q COBRA JET three-year-old colt had to need his last start having been off over a month.  (9) LILLIAN ROAD filly should be in line for a ground saving trip up close.

Race 5

(2) WATCHA GOT ABBY will look to make it three straight against similar.  (8) BLUE JACKET LUKE will have a tough time finding a way into the race but is one of the faster trotters in the field.  (9) ROJANS LAST SHOT four-year-old is an enigma.  The gelding owns a lot of ability but has been unable to stay trotting.

Race 6

In the toughest race to handicap on the card, (3) DR JACKS SHACK should offer better value this week and is one of few in the race that actually showed a burst of speed in recent weeks.  (2) RAMEMBER has just been racing evenly but has made the most money in the field on the year by far.  (4) FRANCO NATURA N needs racing luck with a good setup.

Race 7

(2) JACOB'S GILLY drew off impressively last start at this level.  (3) NEELY DUNN SUPER would need more to threaten the top choice but does own some upside.  (1) STURDY'S BABY should be much closer turning for home in against a suspect bunch.

Race 8

(9) NOAH'S SHARK is capable of pacing a good mile down in class.  (1) CHROME SEELSTER will be used very aggressively from the rail and is also dropping down a level. (2) GUNNIN' FORAFIGHT gets a good starting spot for the first time in over a month; threat.

Race 9

In a wide open race, (1) DO IT DOC'S WAY will offer a big price and just needs a competent drive for a piece.  (2) AHEAD OF THE CROWD tough to endorse using on top but could hit the ticket underneath at a monster price.  (5) DOOWRAH OMELET faces a really weak and inconsistent field first start in a new barn; threat.

Race 10

(2) TRUE TO MACH veteran pacer takes a significant drop down in class; big chance.  (5) AIRGUITAR ROCKSTAR faced a slightly better field last week and was close.  (9) LANSDOWNE ROAD will offer a big price and picks up a positive driver change.

Race 11

(9) KAYLEIGH'S FUTURE doesn't win often but did get a victory last time down at this level.  (5) CADIE'S GOTTA GUN pacing mare drops down and just needs a good setup for a piece.  (1) STRAWBERRYS ON TOP dominated last week against softer.  The pacer looks to offer low value and will have a tougher time this week; use caution.

Race 12

(1) JOHNNYBANANAS three-year-old set a lifetime mark two back by more than three seconds.  If the pacer races like that its light's out.  (7) SHAGUAR will look to make it two straight for proven connections but needs more.  (6) CAMMILICOUS has been very competitive at this level for a new barn.

Race 13

(3) JUMPIN JACK J will likely offer the better price of the contenders and owns a win against better on the year.  (1) ISLAND CELEBRATION gets the best post in against weaker first start for a new barn.  (9) ROSSRIDGE HANDSOME owns only one win on the year and is best used underneath.

Race 14

(9) ATTACKATOOFORU has squandered two straight nice trips up close.  The pacer faces slightly weaker and could be better from off the pace.  (8) MCMERRY AGAIN owns the fastest win in the field on the year but will need to find a way into the race.  (4) UP FRONT LADY GRAY looks terrible on paper but picks up a big driver change.

Race 15

(2) JK EVEN STEVEN will be driven very aggressively down in class against a suspect bunch.  (7) FLYING METRO is capable of pacing a fast mile and picks up a top driver.  (3) BRYNDAN'S TOY could pick up the pieces in the right scenario but is best used underneath.
