Race 1

(8) WICKED WINDY trotting mare has the most talent if she can mind her manners.  (4) CRAZYJOANN four-year-old mare has lots of room to improve second time out.  (2) MORELAND FLASHBACK looks to offer a big price in a field full of question marks.

Race 2

(1) L R FLYING AMMO gets the best post and picks up a huge driver change.  (3) FEELIN BEACHY raced well at this level last start.  (4) FLYIN ORION comes into the race off a judges scratch but has been very competitive at this level.

Race 3

(6) AVANZA gets a big morning line coming off a nice victory.  (2) CHAMPIONS CLUB has just been racing evenly but should be much closer turning for home.  (1) SO BE IT gets the best post in a weak and inconsistent field.

Race 4

(2) ROMPAWAY ELVIS finds a very soft spot to get it going in 2017.  (3) MUCKMUCK WOODCHUCK was close at a monster price last start.  The 10-year-old should offer another big price with a better starting post.  (1) QUIET CHARMER should be in line for a decent trip up close.

Race 5

(2) ENEE WEENIE AND ME hasn't sealed the deal in quite some time, however the 10-year-old is dangerous with an easy early lead.  (4) NOBLE TRICK takes a huge drop in class against weaker.  The 8-year-old stallion picks up the top driver but will offer low value.  (1) SANTA'S SPECIAL also drops down a notch with the best post.

Race 6

(8) LIGHTENING WAR appears to be starting to figure some things out in his last few; threat.  (2) TYMAL BLING doesn't win often but finds a weak field; fires early.  (3) BOUNTY is a major player with a good setup.

Race 7

(4) SOUTHWIND ILLUSION will offer one of the better prices of the contenders.  (1) KEENE ALLURE mare gets a good driver change with the best post.  (3) GRACIE GRACIE fourteen-year-old mare needed her last start and should have room to improve second start back off a month layoff.

Race 8

(9) DEFTONES just missed at this level two back.  (1) PRINCEOFROCKNROLL has also been close at this level and gets the best starting post.  (4) BEANS AND WEENIES will offer a monster price in against a suspect bunch besides the top choice.

Race 9

(3) SOULFUL DELIGHT veteran trotter owns tons of back class when right.  (6) DETAILER has hit the board twice at this level in the last two starts.  (2) CALLING A VICTORY is inconsistent from week to week but a good effort puts him in the mix.

Race 10

(1) WESTERN FELLA picks up the best post with a huge driver change down in class.  (3) LOCK THREE would need more to tangle with the top choice; use underneath.  (5) ST LADS ZOOM ZOOM has been off almost 6 weeks and looks to need a start.

Race 11

(1) HICKORY BIG BLACK gets sent out for capable connections against a suspect bunch.  (3) GAMBLERS ANONYMOUS was dreadful last start off a perfect trip; command a price.  (2) ADDYS SECRET could be in a good spot to save some ground before shaking loose late.

Race 12

(3) PATIENT I D made the most money in the field last year and will offer value.  (5) DRINSONTHEHOUSE well bred mare has beaten better on the year.  (2) HARD ROCK TRIXIE was tenacious on the lead last start.

Race 13

(4) MEAN FEVER is just now back in racing shape and has room to improve.  (3) COMMON CREED  hasn't won in a really long time but has been knocking on the door.  (1) FRISKIE TOWN has question marks coming off a scratch but shows a good effort at this level a few back.

Race 14

(5) HIDDEN HALL gelding makes his second start in a new barn.  (4) BREAKIN THE LAW well bred pacer owns some back class and faces much weaker.  (1) CRANK IT UP gets the best post; fires early.

Race 15

(6) TOMMY TWO SHOES drops down and will be used aggressively.  (9) GLASS PACK picks up a huge driver change down in class.  (1) STAMPED BY DESIGN has room to improve second start back off a layoff.
