Race 2

(5) WELL SPOKEN well bred pacer has some room to improve against a field full of question marks.  (6) CONTINUANCE raced well last out just tiring late against the same bunch.  (4) ST LADS LUCY lightly raced pacer makes his third career start and could be ready for a better effort.

Race 3

(2) BALLYKEEL MIKE gelding makes his second start in a hot barn and is one of few threats to the favorite.  (8) GET PACKIN will look to make it five wins in seven starts; fires early.  (1) DOUBLE A GLORIA raced well from the same spot last out but is best used underneath.

Race 4

(5) TIE YOUR SHOE ED nice-looking pacer exploded late last out and looks to have more.   (9) UPTOWN ROMANCE has been much improved in his last two efforts and should offer nice value.  (4) TAZAWA has shown a decent burst of speed but the top driver opted elsewhere; command a price.

Race 5

(3) FOREVER GOOD veteran pacer was parked the mile last out but could do some damage at a price with a smooth trip.  (2) CYCLONE ASHORE gets sent out second start for new connections; threat.  (4) U BETTOR WATCH OUT keeps the top driver but has yet to get over the hump in this barn.

Race 6

In the toughest race to handicap on the card (2) ROCKY MY BOY gets some post relief and will offer a big price in an evenly matched race.  (8) ML GAMBLER owns a decent burst of speed but will need a lot of racing luck from a tough post.  (3) SHOCKBYELECTRIC gelding could get an easy early lead but has a tough time finishing his miles; use underneath.

Race 7

(3) PUTNAMS STORM didn't miss by much at this level from the far outside last week.  If the pacer puts in a similar effort he will be tough to beat; driver's choice.  (4) MODERN WARFARE takes a huge drop in class but has been off his game lately; use caution.  (1) QUICK KIL looks to be in line for a nice trip up close.

Race 8

(3) LUCKY DANISH will look to make it four straight wire to wire wins.   (1) MJS VICTORY JODY trotting mare is the only threat to the top choice but needs to be closer turning for home.  (6) AL-MAR SNEAKY PETE owns good gate speed and can hit the ticket with a smooth trip.

Race 9

Race 10

(1) ACTIVATOR fourteen-year-old pacer gets sent out for a red hot barn with the best post.   (5) MATTOX'S WESTERN picks up a huge driver change off an impressive victory; threat.  (2) ALIGNED HANOVER showed a decent late kick last out and looks to be in line for a ground saving trip.

Race 11

(6) JACK ATTACK BROWN bumps up in class off a nice victory and finds a weak field.  (7) WINDSONG DESTROYER is just now back in racing shape and could be sitting on an improved effort.  (9) OIL SLICKER was the top driver's choice in a field full of question marks.

Race 12

(7) LADY REV mare is much better than this group when right.  (4) LEGACY CHIP picks up a positive driver change against a suspect bunch.  (2) LUCKY CIRO gets a much better post and will offer a huge price in a wide open race.

Race 14

(9) GO HERBIE GO just missed last out to a similar group; threat.   (3) CIRO rarely wins but will offer a big price in a weak field.  (7) TIOGA THUNDER has shown a big burst of speed but needs to find a way into the race.

Race 15

(9) LIGHTNING IN THE SKY picks up the top driver and should be in line for a decent trip.  (2) HAGI gets sent out for a new barn off a decent qualifier.  (1) EARLYMORNINARRIVAL just missed at this level from this spot two starts ago; threat.
