Race 2 

(8) SHARK LEAP HANOVER can’t get overlooked in this class as the gelding has hit the board in each of his last three starts for trainer Cheryl Bloomfield. (2) NINETYMILE HANOVER finally draws an inside post this week for trainer Carmen Auciello, and driver Anthony MacDonald will certainly make the most of it. (3) CHATTANOOGA JIM shows 1:52 3/5 speed just two starts ago for trainer Mike Bishop and that type of performance makes him a top candidate in this field.

Race 3 

(2) FASHION GODDESS was a vet scratch sick on November  but still stands out in this spot. (5) CASH FOR GOLD raced very well last week for trainer/driver Michael Vanderkemp as the son of Cash Hall finished second in this class under a hand-drive. (6) PAGE IN TIME has hit the board in each of his last two starts for trainer Bill Budd and the four-year-old has been offering a fair price as of late.

Race 4 

(3) ST LADS PENNY LANE generally competes at a higher level, but the daughter of Million Dollar Cam finds herself against a much easier bunch this week. (4) KIKISKISSINKOUSIN overcame post 10 last week to finish third with the track off four seconds. (9) DAPPLE APPLE offers terrific gate speed and raced very well last week in this condition under new trainer Laura Winacott.

Race 5 

(2) THE MUSCLER draws inside this week and if he can mind his manners, he’s certainly a top threat in this bottom-end classification. (7) DREAMFAIR BOGART was a winner two starts back in gate-to-wire fashion at this level. (3) SEAWIND PASCALE dropped into this class last week and immediately found the winner’s circle for trainer Ted Macdonnell.

Race 6

(3) ITS A GO will make his debut on this circuit and comes from the Joe Cirasuola barn. (8) VAL AMERICA has over $400K of back class and will make his second start for trainer Tony Montini. (9) THINKBEFOREUSPEAK draws outside this week, but is at a level where he should be very competitive.

Race 7 

(5) HIS BOY ELROY finished second in both preliminary legs of the Autumn Series, before suffering a parked-out journey in the rich final from the 10-hole. (1) LITTLEBITASWAGGER remains undefeated in three career starts, draws the rail and has a lot of momentum coming into this contest. (8) BROWN DIRT COWBOY has hit the board in each of his last three starts, including a win last week for trainer/owner James Lamacchia.

Race 8 

(1) ESCUELA makes his way into the Tony O’Sullivan barn and gets Jody Jamieson in the bike for his WEG debut. (8) ORDER BY COMMANDER drops in for a claiming tag this week for trainer Vic Puddy. (9) HOLY MOLIE MAGGIE has been shy in the win column this season, but can’t be overlooked for the triactor even with a post nine begin.

Race 9 

(8) SI SEMALU was a winner last week in this type of class and has won three of his last four starts. (3) JDS CALEB MAN draws well again this week for trainer Carmen Auciello and has been a main threat in each of his last two starts. (5) BLUE CHIP SUNSHINE draws in the middle of the gate and hasn’t been worse than second in each of his last three.

Race 10 

(7) WHIPPET GOOD has been knocking on the door in recent weeks and appears to have the most momentum coming into this dash. (10) ER ZACH ATTACK shows all kinds of speed over the Hoosier Park surface in Indiana and now makes his way onto this circuit for trainer Trent Stohler. (8) CROWN ISLE finished fifth last week, but was too far back to make up any ground.
