Race 1

(1) NOTALKINGBACK posted a good effort in her return, drops in class and gets the rail. (5) LIVE TO DREAM also drops in class and has hit the board in two of her last three. (2) BEE FULLOF STEINAM raced terrific last start with a solid final frame. A repeat effort makes her a top threat.

Race 2

(8) STANDING MY GROUND has the speed, drops into a claimer and comes out of Moreau's barn. (5) MO DEBRA comes out of a very high percentage barn. He qualified well and is classified accordingly. (2) SCHRADER HANOVER has been racing very well in his latest. He draws well and closed very well last week.

Race 3

(3) MISSEVIL gets post relief and is the horse to beat. She can get hot behind the gate so the connections race her conservatively; don't expect gate speed. (1) POLK DOT HANOVER gets the rail, comes out of Menary's barn and appears ready after a terrific qualifier. (4) VIOLET BAYAMA tends to be inconsistent, but she has the speed and remains a contender for the triactor.

Race 4

(4) MACH SOME NOISE enters a non-winners of two event in her career debut, but I think she can handle it after her encouraging qualifier. (8) MAKE SOME MEMORIES has been racing very well in this class and once again is a top threat. (5) LADY VALENTINE is fresh off a win, has been racing consistently and seems capable of the class hike.

Race 5

(4) DREAMFAIR BOGART drops in class where he's been racing very competitively. (10) K D BELLA raced very well last week and hopefully is positioned nicely in the early going. Speed is not an issue with her; it's her manners. (3) MIYAGI HANOVER likely will offer a price. She comes out of Henriksen's barn and is capable of surprising.

Race 6

(1) JENNA CASIMIR draws the rail, drops in class and likely will offer a low price. (4) ST LADS MORGAN is fresh off a win and has been racing terrific as of late. (7) ROMANTIC FEVER is also off a win, hasn't missed the board in her last three and appears capable of jumping up in class.

Race 7

(1) MARQUISE DE SARAH has been racing at a much higher level and gets major class relief. Along with the rail, she'll attract a lot of attention. (8) WAASMULA tends to be inconsistent, but that was an impressive victory last week. A repeat effort makes her a top threat. (9) ITS NO SECRET also drops in class and has a punishing late kick.

Race 8

(4) ALOT OF SENSE comes off an impressive qualifier and gets McNair in the bike. Don't expect a price on this youngster. (2) SOUTHERN ROCK draws well, qualified strong and enjoys being put in the race. (7) MICHELLE DIAMOND has hit the board in each of her last two starts. She'll likely offer a price and is capable of the hitting the triactor.

Race 9

(7) VALORSCROSS raced well in his debut last week. He's versatile, had a successful 2013 campaign and should be even better this week. (8) ALL CHILL NO FILL moves into the Baillargeon barn. He's terrific with trotters and worth a look. (9) CANBEC KADENCE is versatile and raced very well last week. He's a contender if he's put in the race like last start.

Race 10

(1) LIGHTS GO OUT finally gets post relief, remains at this level and is due for a win. (2) DEAR ARYSS drops in class, has the speed and Gallucci's barn has been much better as of late. (4) RELEASE THE MAGIC hasn't missed the board in five starts this season. She's capable of the class jump and enjoys using her gate speed.

Race 11

(2) LIBERTYS BEST STAR drops back down in class where he's been racing very competitively. He draws well and enjoys being put in the race. (5) DOCS HOSS has a patented closing kick and we should see that once again from a good starting spot. (7) BATTLE RIVER STORM has hit the board in two of his last three at long odds.
