Best Bet: OLIVIA V (7th)

Spot Play: THE PRICE YOU PAY (12th)

Race 1

(2) CYRANO JONES has hit the board in all six starts on the year.  The pacer finds a weak field and has flashed a decent burst of speed.  (5) POR QUE NO owns a win at this level and has been improving.  (6) HEART OF GLASS finally got a victory last start against similar; threat.

Race 2

(4) WILD NORDIC has some question marks coming off two straight breaks.  The 11-year-old has been competitive against much better on the year.  (2) TOES closed up a lot of ground late from a tough spot last start.  (9) SPIES AN LIES has been close at this level in two of three.

Race 3

(3) KIRKTONS CREDIT is probably the horse to beat if the pacer minds his manners.  (2) ROCKIN TO THE MOON well bred pacer should offer a big price and looks to be in line for a nice trip up close.  (6) RADIO LOVER drops back down against weaker; threat.

Race 4

(2) WHITE EARNIE six-year-old trotter has raced really well on the front end; fires early.  (4) HEMLOCK BLITZ will offer good value and his been knocking on the door.  (8) BLACK DENIM N LACE has dominated in two straight but could be in for a much tougher trip this week.

Race 5

(5) RULER'S BEST will look to make it two straight wins against similar.  (3) MCNICE owns a win at this level but needs a smooth trip to score a victory.  (6) SHELL BELL raced really well last week just missing to the top choice.

Race 6

In a weak field full of question marks, (4) FLYIN ORION has been improving each week and will offer a decent price.  (5) YOUHADMEFROMHELLO filly was finally competitive last week hitting the board for the first time in eight career starts.  (1) REBEL ROCK RUSTY sophomore pacer gets the best post and will offer a big price.

Race 7

(2) OLIVIA V was much better for the new barn in victory last out.  The 6-year-old can make it two straight with a similar effort.  (9) KARMA KWEEN  pacing mare was sharp in victory last week.  If the driver can work out a smooth trip from the second tier she should be in the mix.  (1) HAPPY FEET TOO had no excuse last week off soft fractions; command a price.

Race 8

(3) BOLD DECISION owns a win against tougher on the year and looks to offer the best price of the contenders.  (4) BORN TO ROCKN ROLL the pacer has just been racing evenly but picks up a significant driver change.  (1) AHEAD OF THE CURVE gets sent out for proven connections with the best post.

Race 9

In a tough race to gauge, (3) SECOND CHANCE raced well for being off over a month last start and has room to improve.  (2) FOREVER LOVER shows some competitive lines at this level despite only one win on the year.  (4) CALL ME ELIZABETH doesn't win often but has hit the board in two of three against similar.

Race 10

(4) LOVE YOU BAD is very inconsistent from week to week.  If the 4-year-old gelding puts forth his best effort he's the horse to beat.  (5) DRIVEN TO SUCCEED pacer is 0 for the year but could hit the ticket with a good setup.  (9) WELCOME WAGON pacer gets sent out for the top barn and owns wins against better on the year.

Race 11

(1) MS SOLONGBYEBYE mare gets the best post in a field full of question marks.  (4) CLASSIC SAKURI mare has hit the board in three straight and picks up a positive driver change.  (7) DESPERATE CROWDS will look to make it two straight in a new barn.  The pacer will offer a big price and just needs to find a way into the race.

Race 12

(1) THE PRICE YOU PAY will be used aggressively down in class with the best post.  (3) FOX VALLEY ARMOR pacer is capable of a good effort when right.  (4) BIG BOSSMAN owns an easy win at this level and picks up a top driver.

Race 13

(7) DRINKSONTHEHOUSE has a lot of question marks coming into the race off a scratch, however if the trotting mare is right she can score at a price.  (3) B COR THOMAS picks up a huge driver change in an inconsistent field.  (9) ZORGWIJK MERCEDES it's tough to believe the trotter is 0 for the year; use underneath.

Race 14

(9) SHIRLEYS DREAM filly is 0 for the year but has been facing much tougher.  (1) HULA LU drops in class with the best post.  (2) FOREVER LUCKY has just been racing evenly; use underneath.

Race 15

(5) STEVIE DIAMONDS pacer was heavily bet as the favorite against a much tougher field last start.  (2) JUST HENRY pacer has room to improve third start back off a layoff.  (9) CMR WINDMACH needs a fast pace to close into for his best chance.
