Race 2

(2) THE MUSCLER has been terrific since arriving in the Jones barn, has gate-speed and likely will offer a low price. (7) VERDI has finished second in both starts this season and comes from a top trotting barn. (5) ADVERSITY comes from the Henriksen barn, draws well and went a solid mile in his latest.

Race 3

(5) MARCO DE VIE scored an impressive win in gate-to-wire fashion last week in his season debut. He's capable of a repeat on the class jump. (9) CRANK IT UP has been racing strong in his first two starts this season. He's a logical choice in here for Hall of Famer McIntosh. (8) P L GYRO doesn't like to win, but shows consistency and the ability to hit the board at this level.

Race 4

(3) KINDLY POET gets much needed post and class relief. (7) SANTANNA BLUE CHIP has shown steady improvement in his last few starts and drops back down where he won two back. (8) MIDNITE ROMP draws outside once again, but drops in class and has the speed for this bottom level.

Race 5

(2) TSUNAMI SEELSTER qualified very strongly last week for trainer Wallace. If he minds his manners, he's a top threat. (3) SAS WARKENTIN qualified strong in gate-to-wire fashion, draws inside and enjoyed a successful rookie campaign. (7)  BLUSTER comes out of the 'Nifty' Norman barn, raced well in his debut on this circuit last week and should be even better.

Race 6

(5) PETER PUMPKINEATER raced very well last week for McNair and was very impressive. He remains at the same class and enjoys racing off a helmet. (3) DOCS HOSS draws well and is a logical choice for the exactor with his record this season. (2) WILDCAT BOBBY has hit the board in each of his last three starts and finished very strong last week at high odds.

Race 7

(4) SEAWIND PASCALE draws well, is fresh off a win in good form and is very capable of the class jump. (3) AGGRESSIVE raced very well last season as a rookie, draws inside and should be even better in his second start of the year. (5) MASSIVE TALENT comes from a top barn, closed very well last week and should be better placed this week.

Race 8

(3) BIG SURF just missed in his last two at this maiden level and is due for his first career win. (4) MAJOR DEAGAN qualified well in a solid time for trainer Brethour. He's excellent with young starters. (9) NORMSTRIKESFAME has the speed, comes from a high percentage trainer and should offer a price in this class.

Race 9

(6) ROSE RUN ORIANA has been excellent in her last two, enjoys leaving the gate and comes from Johnson's barn. (8) ROCKIN WITH DEWEY is the other top option for the big prize. She's been at her best, is versatile and comes from the Baillargeon barn. (7) FRISKY MAGIC has been knocking on the door in her last two in this series. She has the speed and a top option for the triactor.

Race 10

(9) DRAGON SEELSTER finished third in the Youthful final against tougher company and gets class relief. (4) EINSTEINS BEST came out of the clouds last week to get the job done. He draws better, gets McNair in the bike and will offer a low price. (2) NIRVANA SEELSTER closed very strongly last week in his first career win. He moves up in class, but is very capable based on last week's effort.
