Best Bet: ERGO HANOVER (9th)

Spot Play: CALLING A VICTORY (5th)

Race 1

(2) ANDOVER ISLE well bred trotter just needs to mind his manners for a piece.  (1) RUN WITH ME four-year-old gets the best post and needed his last start.  (3) SR LILLYSTAR is very inconsistent from week to week; use underneath.

Race 2

(1) CHEYENNE REIJANE lightly raced two-year-old  is one of few in the field with some upside.  (3) SAND ROCKER has room to improve second start out for a new barn.  (7) FLYIN ORION has hit the board in two straight.  The pacer is one of two horses in the race with a win on the year.

Race 3

(5) LIBERTY BEACH has been competitive against much tougher on the year.  (3) FORTUNE JAMES has just been racing evenly but will offer a big price in a field full of question marks.  (1) DOUBLE O JESSE picks up a huge driver change with the best post.

Race 4

(6) WELCOME WAGON pacer has been awful for a few months, however the pacer takes a significant drop in class.  (5) PLAYMAKER was much improved last week against similar.  (9) GOOD BY ALIBYE pacer is 0 for the year but could be in line for a nice ground-saving trip up close.

Race 5

In a wide open and evenly matched race, (9) CALLING A VICTORY has been facing tougher and just needs a smooth trip for a chance to score.  (7) SPIES AND LIES raced well at this level last week showing decent late trot.  (3) HELLO CARLO veteran trotter burned cash last week but is capable.

Race 6

(4) BURSTING BLAZE pacer picks up a huge driver change.  The 8-year-old is 0 for the year but has been facing much tougher.  (5) HANGON MAN the pacer is capable of a good effort but has just been racing evenly.  (9) RIDGE PARK has finished second in two of his previous three starts at this level; use underneath.

Race 7

(6) UPFRONT CHIP DADDY picks up the top driver off a decent effort.  (7) BOOKEM veteran trotter owns come back class and can threaten with some racing luck.  (1) SIRKULER takes a significant drop in class with the best post.

Race 8

(4) WIT AND WISDOM has been competitive against better; threat.  (9) STEVIE DIAMONDS the pacer was a game winner when last seen at this level.  (6) JUMPIN JACK J will offer a big price and could be in line to pick up the pieces late.

Race 9

(4) ERGO HANOVER drew off by open lengths last week.  A similar effort makes it two straight.  (2) HOUSE OF CASH has not won a race in some time but has been knocking on the door against tougher; threat.  (1) HERES ETHEL gets the best post in an evenly matched race.

Race 10

(1) FLYING METRO picks up a big driver change with the best post.  (6) REGIL TIGER hit the board last week against similar but looks to offer low value; use caution.  (9) BLESSING STONE pacer has room to improve second start out for a new barn.

Race 11

(1) POR QUE NO filly has burned cash in four straight but gets the best post in a weak field.  (6) THETIS owns a win against similar and closed decent ground from a tough post last week.  (9) TILLY THE FILLY four-year-old mare is just now back in racing shape and has room to move forward against a suspect bunch.

Race 12

(5) DON SWAN picks back up a top driver.  The trotter dominated at this level a few weeks ago.  (1) HELLO CHIPPER should be in line for a nice ground-saving trip up close.  (9) ROCKIN H CHEERY O owns a decent burst of speed when timed right; use underneath.

Race 13

In a very tough race to gauge, (9) ELOCUTIONIST shows some decent efforts against similar and will offer a nice price.  (1) DJ SUPREME owns only one win on the year but will be used aggressively against a weak field.   (3) CELESTIAL DREAMS gets a negative driver change; use underneath.

Race 14

(4) MEADOWVIEW ARTY just missed at this level last week from a tough spot.  (1) AISLING veteran trotter owns some back class and benefits form the best post.  The 12-year-old is capable of a better effort.  (3) SON OFA SPUR finished a good second at this level last week.

Race 15

(1) JOHNNY MAGIC owns a n easy win from this same spot a few starts back.  (2) BIG BAD'S SHADOW sophomore pacer picks up a top driver and faces a weak field full of question marks.  (3) SAM'S NOBLE DOCTOR might have gained some confidence with a win on the fair circuit but is probably best used underneath.
