Race 1

(1) CONDOR HALL was huge winning two from post seven and took some exercise in last. Moves in and has a license to surprise. (3) MASTERS TRACKSTER has speed but has not been holding it to the wire in recent. (4) FEEL THE POWER made a costly break in last as the beaten favorite and can atone on best.

Race 2

(4) MASTER WHEELS knocked on the door in last but should be tighter this time around. (2) ROSE RUN JERIAH qualified well in last and could be toughest if he stays flat. (1) ROCK ON TRIGGER has the pole for owner, trainer, driver and should get a payday.

Race 3

(2) REWRITE THE RULES ships in and has fared better versus better. (3) SMALLSREED has Wrenn back in the bike and cannot be ignored. (1) DUE CALZE has the pole and her best keeps her close to the lane.

Race 4

(1) GYPSY LADY has been closing decently and looks as close to a lock as one can find from the rail despite moving up a bit. (7) CORWHINY will have to get to the rail to be most effective but there isn't much speed inside. (6) PAMSFOOLISHTERROR has been rallying wide in recent and can upset on best.

Race 5

(7) SEPTEMBER HALL ships in and faces weaker. (1) TIMBOGO has to be considered a serious threat from the rail given last few races. (6) TIMER won on the front end last time in game fashion but would have to step up his game to do it again.

Race 6

(2) MACH TO THE LIMIT will be in perfect striking position heading home. (2) ALLAMERICAN MASTER wired the field in last, ships in and should try it again. (7) BASILIO BLUE CHIP moves out but can be close throughout if he makes the rail.

Race 7

(2) TYMAL BLING races second time off a couple of qualifiers and will be sharper this evening. (3) ROSE RUN NEMO made a first over bid but broke in the lane. Has been threatening and would be a surprise but do not ignore at the price. (1) ELIAN EXPRESS has the rail and some early speed. Will give it a go and may not yield this time.

Race 8

(2) WESTERN RANGE put the pedal to the metal in last but ran out of gas in the lane. Moves in and faces weaker. (1) CHIPS GALORE does not have much in the way of early speed but faces a field ready to be paced over in the lane. (4) has hit the board a few times in recent while not firing a winning shot.

Race 9

(2) FORTURNE JAMES draws inside again and was a fast closing winner two back. Last was a modest late closing effort and his best makes him an upset winner. (7) MISS LULU BELLE seeks third straight that is rare for this kind. She is sharp enough to give a strong try. (3) NEELY SPRING was a huge winner two back and second best late closer in last.

Race 10

(2) AT DAYBREAK has been battling to the end last two after a strong qualifier. (1) JOJO IN THE SKY has been too sharp to ignore and has the rail. (7) IRISH ELITIST was parked to command in last from the 8-hole and won impressively but steps up

Race 11

(7) FORTUNE SAILOR had been battling strong this level and best effort puts him in line for mild upset. (4) VACATION ANGLE has been sharp as a tack in all recent but faces slightly better. (2) TROTALOT has closed well in all recent cannot be overlooked.

Race 12

(2) SINGIN BLUES went well for Lake in the qualifier two back and might be just what he needs to get 'er done. (3) OIL SLICKER put in two qualifiers out of town after missing all of 2013 and finished with pace at Hazel in latest. Might be tight enough to argue the point. (4) LIGHTNINGINTHESKY was moving fast at the wire in last and faces similar.

Race 13

(2) MOOVEIT has been well bet last two winning two back and finished well for second best in last. (4) CALL HIM CLINT won last in monster effort and seeks third straight. (3) INGLORIOUS MUSTARD wired the field last time and could be ready for a repeat.

Race 14

(5) WHAT DO YOU WANT closed stoutly to win last going away. Has seen better days but you got to consider him the one to fear in the lane. (3) CHIPS DREAMER has seconditis this season to date but could be the one to catch once again. (6) EDOM UP BLUE BOY broke at the start in last and has to stay flat but best makes him a threat.

Race 15

(2) FULLY LOADED GUN moves in and ships back to Northfield. (3) THE MACHSTER seeks third straight. (7) WESTERN RIVAL has been banging away out of town and knocking hard on the door to the winner's circle.
