Race 1

(6) ICANFEELYOUBREATH was a game winner at this level last out, should offer a better price, and keeps a red-hot pilot.  (2) NO DRAMA gelding will look to make it four wins in five starts; fires early.  (5) FIDGETTING HANOVER finds a wide-open race and needs a trip.

Race 2

(1) MOM'S LOOKER draws the best post and keeps the top pilot.  (3) WAY SO FAST has some ability and looks to be in a good spot to do some damage.  (2) S M'S TERMINATOR top pilot opted elsewhere but don't count the trotter out in a weak field.

Race 3

(2) TERROR OF THETRACK takes a significant drop in class and has been pacing much faster than the field; short price.  (1) ENVY looks terrible on paper but gets an upgrade in the bike and draws the rail.  (3) MAXIMUM VIKING veteran pacer still owns a decent burst with a good trip.

Race 4

In a really wide open race on paper (9) MAES PERFECT STORM made a lot of money last year and picks up the top pilot.  (3) MISS LULU BELLE needed the start last out and should improve.  (1) ABBEYCREST drops in class, draws the rail, and was the driver's choice; threat.

Race 5

(4) BEER LEAGUE gets a good driver change and faces a much easier bunch.  (6) UP FRONT STRIKING will probably be overbet based on how his last line looks.  If you sew his race last week he couldn't close off a perfect ground saving trip; use caution.  (1) BUCK I TIME if the trotter minds his manners he will probably get a piece.

Race 6

(2) DANCE WITH DAN put in a really nice first start off a long layoff.  The pacer will be tough to beat with a repeat of his last effort.  (1) TIELER BEA HOTSPUR has closing ability and should be closer turning for home; use underneath.  (4) CHIPS GALORE has been pacing some good miles but looks to be in line for a tough trip.

Race 7

(8) KATIE AND J should offer an enticing price handicapped with the worst post.  The well-bred mare adds lasix for the second time, makes her second start back off a long layoff, and put in a sneaky good effort last out.  (4) CINDERELLA STORY showed a big burst of speed first start with a new trainer and should be able to build off that.  (5) SWEETIE SUE CAM picks up a significant driver change in a weak field.

Race 8

(1) VACATION ANGEL will be going for three in a row and will be tough to deny with a smooth trip.  (2) WHAT DO YOU WANT could be the only threat to the favorite.  The 6-year-old trotter gets the benefit of the best post after not missing by much to the top choice last race.  (6) CHIP'S DREAMER gelding has room for improvement after needing his first start in six months.

Race 9

(2) MORELAND FLASH makes his 2014 debut off on average qualifier but could be ready for a good effort off the bench.  (4) CRAIG MICHAEL will probably be a heavy favorite but has been racing very poorly; use caution.  (1) DERINGER GUN rarely wins but could be in line for an ideal trip.

Race 10

(5) JESSE'S MESSENGER mare has tons of back class and the connections have been bringing her back slowly.  The 7-year-old trotter finds an easy spot to gain some confidence.  (1) MYSTERY RINGER drops out of the Open but has been very inconsistent.  (2) THE RAINCATCHER put in a huge effort last out making up a ton of ground after a break.

Race 11

In a field with few contenders (3) FOREVER HAPPY has been racing gamely and will be tough to beat with an easy lead.  (9) FULLY LOADED GUN keeps the top driver and should hit the board with a good spot out of the gate.  (1) BOILER BREES should start to see some form after a long layoff; use underneath.

Race 12

(6) SCHALYN has the most upside in the race and could be primed for a big effort third start back down in class.  (7) MASTER LAD PRO is versatile and should offer a huge price.  (1) MACAO draws the best post but is not consistent.

Race 13

(4) MOSH PIT trainer's horses are all inconsistent from week to week.  Watch the tote board because they seem to race much better when taking tote action.  (1) LEE A BRYANT if the pilot can work out a smooth trip this is probably the horse to beat.  (5) MACH TO THE LIMIT has been racing gamely but needs some racing luck.

Race 14

(8) ANNIE'S ROCKETMAN gelding trotter looks like a real good one and will be firing early.  (4) NEELY SPRING has been much better in his last two efforts.  (2) CALLING A VICTORY should be much sharper in his second start off a layoff.

Race 15

In a field with few contenders (1) TICKLE MY FANTASY made a break on the lead last out as the big favorite.  The pacer only has one threat if he minds his manners.  (9) J J NEWTON is really getting better with every start.  The pacer will need to get a good stalking spot out of the gate but has been razor sharp.  (5)  AE WESTERN INGOT is very inconsistent from week to week; use underneath.
