Race 1

(4) DEWEYKEEPUMNWHY qualified well with trotting hopples added and he keeps them on here. He is surely good enough to beat these if he can stay flat. (7) FIVE BELOW trotted a strong uncovered mile last week to just miss. He is an obvious threat. (5) OUR MOJO put in a solid performance making several moves in his return race last week and he is another that can take this contentious opener. (6) CLASS ME NICE should take a smaller share as he is prone to do frequently.

Race 2

(4) MASERATI SEELSTER was one of several leaders in a mile full of action last week and he almost lasted while carving out some solid splits. This race could be less eventful which would help his chances. (1) THINK AGAIN was used up early in the same mile as the choice now he goes for the top barn off the claim; using. (6) SKY GUY also peppered the early pace when it was expected he would be closing from the back. He will likely revert to stalking tactics here and pass some rivals late. (5) SIERRA MADRE took advantage of some wild battling that probably won't materialize this time; minor share predicted.

Race 3

(6) LINWOOD BEACHGIRL should get an honest pace to track again and she should be able to double up off a similar trip as last week. (2) SAYITALL BB drops from the top class which should put her right there vs. these. (3) LOVETHEWAYYOULOOK could last longer here with last week's tightener under her belt. (7) REGALLY READY will likely be winding up from the backfield turning for home and she could better this prediction.

Race 4

(6) JIMBELINA raced decently in the Autumn series and she should be tough in here racing on or near the lead. (5) JIMMYS LITTLE GIRL motored home in 27 1/5 last week. She wouldn't be the worst stab to take on this card making her third start back off a break. (8) ZEALOUS SEELSTER brings sharp form with her from Flamboro and her good early speed should play well over this track. (7) DRIFT PANIC will put it all together one of these weeks and she will likely pop at a price.

Race 5

(2) LADY PING could mow these down late on the class drop if she can stay flat - which seems to be a 50/50 proposition for her most nights. (1) SECOND SISTER has been racing okay at this class and she could trip out here id she can get away fast enough from the tricky inside post. (4) ADVERSITY should show more here starting from the middle of the gate. (7) RAMAS LAST SON raced decently in this class on October 28th; consider for multi-race bets.

Race 6

(10) BRING ME DIAMONDS went a big trip from an outer post to win last week. The 10-hole should boost her price a bit here; top call. (9) NIPS BEACH GIRL has been showing a ton of early speed in claimers at Pocono; she will have to be caught. (7) SUNSET SARA could show more here at a price coming back in a week and dropping into a claimer. (5) MISS JONES SHOOTER should stick around for a smaller slice here.

Race 7

(7) BERNADETTE may bring a decent price here coming off the shelf but she appears to be ready to roll and she is capable of beating these with the right trip. (8) LADY MARINA peaked in the Autumn series final and she is the one to beat here in her current sharp form. (2) DONTBRUISECARRIE is worth a look here with the switch to trainer Auciello. (10) WASAGA BEACH closed furiously late to take a new life's mark last week but post 10 likely dooms her to a minor share here.

Race 8

(7) GRANA PADANNO left hard from the far outside post last time then he was part of the pace most of the way. He could clear early here and take these all the way. (9) DOMEDOMEDOME drops to a class where she is typically competitive; using. (2) CROWN CLASSIC will be passing rivals late, but it's debatable whether she is close enough to the leaders to threaten for the win. (6) AMITYVILLE LINDY took a ton of action last time then disappointed. He is capable of better and he could wake up in this spot.

Race 9

(6) JUSTABIT MEAN and (10) AINSLEYNOELLE rate highest here on the class drop. I'll give a slight nod to the former based on post position. (7) ARTISTIC MADISON has seen better days, but she could take a smaller share here if she can reproduce the late speed she showed last time. (5) SPORTSILLUSTRATOR has improved in three starts for trainer Gilmour. Keep her in mind for exotic wagers.

Race 10

(4) QUEENOFTHEJUNGLE is capable of an upset here if she is sent hard off the gate for position near the front; slight nod. (10) TEMPUS SEELSTER raced great in the Autumn series and she should be a big threat here despite her post. (7) TOP ROYAL rates highly exiting the Autumn series and she has proven that she can take a lot of air and keep going forward; using. (3) DOCS SAUSALITO wasn't far from notching a huge upset last time. She should be good for at least a small share here. (2) NEVER ANY DOUBT is one of the best in here, but she will likely be affected negatively by missing almost a month; minor share predicted.
