Race 2

(3) MS JETTA pacing mare makes her third start back off a layoff and was flying at the end of her mile last start.  (6) MM'S SHINING STAR mare will offer a big price making her career debut and could have some ability.  (7) ANASTASIA WIGGLE needs to find a way into the race but has been slowly improving.

Race 3

(3) DOLORD looks to make it two straight against the same bunch.   (2) GOOD BY ALIBYE just missed last out and gets another great starting post.  (5) LATENITE TRICK has room to improve coming off a nice qualifier on an off track.

Race 4

(6) AL BROWN takes a significant drop in class and will be used aggressively.  (5) SAY IT BEST nine-year-old trotter makes his first start in a capable barn; threat.  (1) WEST RIVER VICTORY gets the best post facing weaker.

Race 5

(1) ST LADS GIDGET lightly raced filly is one of few with upside in the race.  The pacer gets the best post with the top driver.  (5) BROOKLETS BLISS raced gamely last out getting the victory but probably needs more up in class.   (4) U F SCOOTIN WHOSUR will look to get a piece late; use underneath.

Race 6

In a weak and inconsistent field, (4) JESSE'S PRIDE was improved in the qualifier and should offer the best price of the contenders.  (2) GUNS FOR FUN has been inconsistent from week to week but picks up a top driver.  (1) VICTORY BOOK three-year-old trotter should be primed for a better effort third start back off a layoff.

Race 7

(1) INGLORIOUS MUSTARD gets sent out for low percentage connections, however the pacer has a tendency to do his best racing up front; fires early.   (2) DR JACKS SHACK needs a good setup but can score against this bunch.  (6) TIDEWATER TOMCAT gelding makes his second start for new connections and keeps the top driver.

Race 8

(9) LULA'S LIL SWEETIE just needs to work out a trouble-free trip from the second tier to make it three straight.  (3) LIKES TO FLIRT mare has been competitive against similar when she minds her manners.  (1) EL CERRITO PLACE was no match for the top choice but should be in line for a great trip up close.

Race 9

(9) THE SWEET DION takes a significant drop in class and was a game winner last start at this level.  (6) TED'S DREAM GIRL picks up the top driver and just missed last out going a big three quarters of a mile.  (2) JULIANA'S DIRECTOR also drops down and owns a win against better on the year.

Race 10

(5) BLUE JACKET LUKE gelding owns a big burst of speed when he stays trotting; threat.  (8) NORTHERN CONE should be considered the horse to beat but gets a very tough starting post.   (3) LU'S NEELY has a good record of hitting the board; use underneath.

Race 11

(1) RESTLESS NATIVE takes a huge drop down in competition and gets the best post.  (3) JIMMY RIP seems to be hit or miss but a good effort puts him in the mix.  (2) MAKE YOUR MOVE has just been racing evenly but could hit the ticket underneath at a price.

Race 12

(3) ABS JESSE HALL four-year-old trotter makes his first start in a new barn that clicks at a high percentage in this scenario.  (2) REGAL GLIDE was close against a much better group last out; big chance.  (5) CAN'T FENCE ME IN mare made a good effort last week in her first start in over two years and should show improvement.

Race 13

(1) FOLLOW TRHOUGH looks to be pacing faster than most of the field and gets the best post.  (7) MR BAILEY needs a good setup for a big shot to strike late.   (8) D J SUPREME has just been racing evenly but finds a suspect bunch.

Race 14

(8) DUNKS BROTHER has room to improve but needs racing luck from a tough post.  (9) GUTH has hit the board in seven of thirteen starts on the year but owns only one win; command a price.  (1) AKNUSTI gets a negative driver change; use caution.

Race 15

In a field that's 0 for 137 on the year, (1) STIRLING CHRIS gets post relief against a weak field.  (5) LIGHTNINGINTHESKY will probably offer low value but should be right there.  (3) BOOGITY BILL could hit the ticket at a price late.
