Spot Play: NED PEPPER (2nd)

Race 1

(5) THREESOCKSNGO four-year-old makes his second start of the year off an improved qualifier.  (8) BALITINA well bred mare will offer a huge price in her career debut against a weak field.  (1) WHALE OF A TALE gets the best post but looks to offer low value; use caution.

[NEW PAST PERFORMANCES: For the first time ever, Trackmaster PPs now available on DRF.com!.]

Race 2

(5) NED PEPPER put in an excellent qualifier and has some upside.  (8) UF CASHNMYCHIPS filly owns a decent burst of speed and just needs to find a way into the race.  (3) GUNS FOR FUN gelding scored a victory in his sophomore debut and could have more to offer.

Race 3

In a tough race to gauge (4) WORLDOFSUNNYTIMES makes his third start of the year against weaker and gets sent out first start for the top trainer.  (3) STRONG VICTORY filly is 0 for her career but does add second-time lasix with a good post.  (5) VICKER has just been racing evenly; command a price.

Race 4

(2) HAGI veteran pacer was a game winner last out and faces a similar bunch.  (5) ACTIVATOR has had two tough trips in a row but is a huge threat at this level.  (6) CRIME SCENE CRUZER owns a decent brush when timed right but needs a good setup.

Race 5

(7) ANNIE'S MASTER looks terrible on paper but is capable of popping at price with a smooth trip.  (4) RAILEE KWIK is 0 for the year but did trot a decent mile last out from a tough post.  (3) GANG OF SIX drops back down to the bottom level and just needs to mind his manners for a big chance.

Race 6

(9) BALLYKEEL MIKE picks up a top driver against easier competition.  (6) IVANA HANOVER has also been facing tougher and makes his first start in a new barn.  (5) GET PACKIN veteran trotter hits the board a lot in this class and is probably the horse to beat with an easy early lead.

Race 7

(1) STAR MASTER FOX gets the best post with the top driver in field full of question marks.  (7) RAY'S WESTERN needs to find a way into the race but looks to be one of few contenders.  (9) TIDBIT should be in line for a ground saving trip; threat.

Race 8

(5) DIBS bumps up in class off a nice victory and should be used aggressively based off his last effort.  (2) FIERCE DESIRE is one of few in the race that's been competitive at this level.  (7) STRANGE HANOVER has been facing much tougher but has not won a race in a very long time; command a price.

Race 9

(9) ELEVEN MADISON nice looking trotter gets sent out for proven connections but will be tested starting in the second tier.  (1) LIKE OLD TIMES filly will look to tackle sire stakes in a few weeks and could need a start.  (2) LUCKY DANISH owns a big burst of speed but has had trouble finishing his miles when on the front end.

Race 10

(5) JIMMY RIP gelding set a lifetime mark last out after not being competitive for months.  The pacer was bet down heavily last week and will win again with a similar effort.  (4) STRAIGHT DANCER rarely wins but faces easier with the top driver.  (1) LIMA RITCH gets the best post against a suspect bunch.

Race 11

In a wide open race (6) NORTHENRN CONE put in a nice qualifier and just needs to stay trotting for a chance at a price. (8) ES MUCHO had no excuse last out but will look to bounce back for new connections.   (3) LU'S NEELY four-year-old trotter has been better in his last few and makes his second start in a new barn.

Race 12

(1) UPFRONT CHIP DADDY gets the best post with the top driver.  (3) MJS VICTORY JODY adds lasix for the first time but has been very inconsistent from week to week.  (2) BOOYAH TJ has also been very inconsistent but is capable of a good move when timed right.

Race 13

(1) DANCE WITH DAN takes a huge drop in class and will be used aggressively from the best post.  (5) LEE A BRYANT is capable of a big effort from time to time and races better forwardly placed.  (6) SUNBURNED VERN owns some back class and can hit the ticket underneath at a price.

Race 14

(5) ARMBRO DURABLE twelve-year-old stallion needed his last start and paced a decent mile. (9) SHAM'S BIG GUY will look to make it three straight with the driver.  (4) FOREVER HAPPY needs a good setup for his best chance and is probably best used underneath.

Race 15

(6) FASHION HEART should have more to offer second start off a long layoff.  (9) DERINGER GUN will offer a big price down in class and just needs to work out a trip.  (7) KENNAIRN LIFE SIGN put in a lackluster effort last start at this level; command a price.
