Spot Play: TORI HANOVER (4th)

Race 1

(5) MASERATI SEELSTER faces considerably easier here dropping out of a claiming handicap and he should get put into play early; top call in the opener. (7) ACEFORTYFOURTALON also moves into a conditioned claimer off a decent effort in a handicap; using. (6) THINK AGAIN has a poor win record but he's been racing decently of late and isn't impossible here. (8) LOOKIN AT A WINNER flashed much better late speed last week and he is another that can win this with the right trip.

Race 2

(2) IDYLLIC BEACH's potent early speed, driver and post are all factors that give her the edge here. (5) SOMEOMENSOMEWHERE has caught fire the past few weeks and she is an obvious threat again. (1) BETTORS UP rarely misses the board and she should make the ticket here, too. (4) ROCKETTE will be passing rivals late for a smaller share here.

Race 3

(2) GRANA PADANNO should be tough here taking a sizable class drop and getting a good post to work from. (3) OLYMPIC SON is capable of leaving much quicker than he has been and if he does, he should be a big threat here. (6) HARPER BLUE CHIP rallied strongly into a slowing late pace last week. He is getting closer to the elusive first win of the year now. (4) SECOND SISTER can sit a good trip near the front and share here.

Race 4

(7) TORI HANOVER should be driven much more aggressively here by Zeron facing easier; top call. (4) CAVIART ALLY tends to finish second frequently, but she is one of the best in here and could take a win with a decent trip. (5) THAT'S THE TICKET should also be laying closer early here exiting the Breeders Crown final; using. (1) CANDLELIGHT DINNER was badly off form when she was laid up in September. She will have to be seen once.

Race 5

(1) REQUEST FOR PAROLE gutted out a win in this class last time and she should be tough here right back while looking for her third straight win. (2) BET YA did a lot of the work in the choice's winning mile and she faded a bit late. A slightly easier trip puts her right there. (10) SELLING THE DREAM is as sharp as they come, but she will likely be fighting for scraps here leaving from the outside. (4) PARTY IN ROME is another that did much of the work last time.

Race 6

(7) SNOWSTORM HANOVER should be aggressively driven here starting from an outer post and has a great chance of doubling up. (3) WHISKEY LINDY should be a big threat from close range here if he stays flat. (5) SEVEN AND SEVEN - the local hope - has to be considered, even coming off the shelf, based on his excellent season so far. (2) INTERNATIONAL MONI can sit a good trip here and take a share if he stays flat this time.

Race 7

(10) TRUE REFLECTION takes a plunge in class and picks up Tetrick here. She deserves top billing, but beware taking too short of a price keeping the 10-hole in mind. (8) KISS ME OR NOT races better from on or near the lead. Maybe she gets sent tonight. (7) SHELLYSSILVERMOON raced decently last time after 48 days. Keep her in mind when you fill out your Pick 4 tickets. (6) DOCS HOLLYWOOD is famous for taking slices. She could hit the ticket at a price here off the layoff.

Race 8

(7) MOONSHINER HANOVER was no match for the best rookie trotter on the continent in the Breeders Crown, but, he should be tough here. (2) WHAT THE HILL wasn't far behind the choice in that mile and he should be the main danger leaving from a good post. (5) LINDY THE GREAT is in sharp form and he could trip out here close to the pace; beware. (6) DANCER HALL has been beating his elders regularly locally but he will need to find another gear to go with some of these.

Race 9

(2) SANDBETWEENURTOES rallied sharply late to win last week and now that she returns again on a 7-day cycle, she can double up here. (7) IMAGINE DRAGON comes off a rapid win down south and she will no doubt be sent hard early off the gate here; the main danger. (5) DELIGHTFUL HILL has been known to spring an upset in this class if she can land in the pocket early; toss her on Pick 4 tickets. (6) ROCK N ROLL XAMPLE looks best of the rest and she should share here.

Race 10

(9) ACEFOURTYFOUR ALEX gets reclassified here and she will likely attract a claim, so expect an aggressive drive. (8) CHARMING HILL is in sharp form racing in this class and can't be ignored here. (7) BONNIES GEM merits a look dropping out of the same race as the choice. (1) MONEY MAGIC can rally again for a share as she did last time.

Race 11

(10) WHISTYS PARADISE got stacked up on way too much cover last time. She could take this at a price with a better trip and has won at this track frequently in the past. (8) MAPLELEA should benefit from a solid early pace here. (6) VOODOO CHARM figures to take a share racing from close range here. (2) CANT STOP should take these a long way and stick around for a piece. (1) MISS COCO LUCK likes this track and she can improve here and take a small slice.
