5,9 / 3 / 1,4,8 / 1,4,5,7,9 = $30


Best Bet: ERGO HANOVER (7th)

Spot Play: M T UR POCKETS (5th)

Race 1

(8) FORT COMMANDER will be tough to beat with a similar effort to his last, even with the tough post.  (4) IM gets sent out for a low percentage pilot but could have a shot late.  (3) VAYA CON DIOS can hit the ticket if he minds his manners.

Race 2

(3) TIDEWATER TOMCAT just missed at this level two back and looks to offer value.  (6) IMPRESSIVE JET has been competitive against better but rarely wins.  (7) ASTOUNDING HANOVER raced better last week but still needs to find a way into the race.

Race 3

(7) NEELY SPRING takes a huge dropdown in class against much weaker.  (4) SENATOR SAM did show improvement last week but looks to offer low value; use caution.  (5) HEMLOCK TOUGH GUY is just now back in racing shape; threat.

Race 4

(1) SJ'S BLISSFUL GUY gets the best post down in class; big chance.  (7) REAL FUTURE needed the start last out after being off a few weeks.  The pacer should be ready for an improved effort against weaker.  (6) TREV ADAMS ATTACK nine-year-old makes his second start off the bench and also has room to improve.

Race 5

(9) M T UR POCKETS just missed last week and has a good history at the track.  (5) ZORGWIJK MERCEDES mare is probably the horse to beat if she minds his manners.  (3) MISS PANTHERS trotting mare comes into the race off a miscue but can contend with a good effort.

Race 6

(2) BUPA BRUSIER has been much improved in his last three efforts and looks to make it two straight at this level.  (1) BOSSIE AUSSIE will offer a nice price and should be in line for a nice trip up close.  (4) WOLF CREEK PEGASUS should have had more to offer last week; use underneath.

Race 7

(8) ERGO HANOVER will be very tough to beat with a similar effort to his last victory.   (4) TSUNAMI DREAM owns a win at this level and should be forwardly placed.   (1) BLUSHING HANOVER gets the best post in a field full of question marks.

Race 8

In a tough race to gauge, (9) JUMPIN JACK J just missed at this level two back and will offer a nice price.  (5) MIDNIGHT DRAGON might have needed his last start off the scratch.  The 7-year-old stallion is capable of crushing this field when right.  (8) SOMEKINDAPARTY well bred pacer should be primed for a better effort third start back off the layoff.

Race 9

(3) ROSE RUN QUASAR will look to make it five wins in seven starts on the year; short price.  (4) CHAMBORO AS adds second time lasix and is one of few threats to the top choice.  (1) GREEN ACRELOLLYPOP picks up a huge driver change with the best post.

Race 10

(8) GRANDKIDS ATTACK dominated a softer bunch last week and can make it two straight with a similar effort; driver's choice.  (1) STATUS QUO impeccably bred pacer gets a big post edge on the top choice; threat.  (4) LOGAMOTION should have more to offer second start back off a layoff.

Race 11

(9) LIMA RITCH always offers a big price and does have a history at popping at big prices.  (4) SLIDN TO YA RONNIE keeps the top driver but has just been racing evenly; command a price.  (1) AUGIE'S drops down in class with the best post.

Race 12

(4) HARD COLD CASH showed nice closing ability last week off slow fractions; threat.  (3) DO WHAT will look to make it two straight wins against similar.  (7) TOYS LEGACY has been competitive at this level but has some question marks coming off a scratch.

Race 13

(3) ROSSRIDGE HANDSOME picks up a top driver facing much weaker.  (4) JIMMY RIP fits in nicely with this bunch and just needs a smooth trip for a piece.  (1) UNADORNED HANOVER gets the best post with a slight upgrade in the bike; threat.

Race 14

In the toughest race to handicap on the card, (1) LOGAN COUNTY RALPH probably needed his last start and should be in line for a much easier trip.  (2) DIAMOND BRADY will offer a big price for a capable trainer.  (3) TERROR OF THETRACK has been very competitive at this level; threat.

Race 15

(3) STAMPED BY DESIGN has been camera shy the last few years but finds a very suspect bunch.  (2) BLACKBIRD SINGING raced well last week and has room to improve second start back off the layoff.  (1) MARK MARA gets the best post coming off a nice qualifier.
