Race 2

(4) TOP GEAR just missed last out after doing all the work; fires early.  (1) COOL ROCK gelding takes a big drop in class but is often at the mercy of the pace with his closing style.  (2) BOLD DECISION gelding hasn't gotten a victory on the year but has shown a good burst of speed; use underneath.

Race 3

(3) BIG PAYOUT was just that last out scoring at a huge price in dominating fashion.  (2) WINZEL gelding makes his way to the big track after an easy victory last out.   (1) SOUTHWIND NAZARETH well bred trotter makes his second start for the new connections and draws the best post.

Race 4

(5) CIONA BROMACH gelding closed nicely last out and should be closer turning for home.  (1) SPAGO HALL veteran pacer has tactical gate speed and draws the best post.  (3) OVERCARD gelding finds a soft field and should offer a nice price.

Race 5

(8) LAKEFIELD takes a huge drop in class for the top trainer and will be firing early.  (9) DUKESTER needs a fast pace upfront for his best chance but that could happen.  Gelding will offer a big price and is racing better than his lines show.  (7) ARMBRO CHRONICLE eleven-year-old put in a big effort last out and should the top choice falter could be a threat.

Race 6

(2) WILD DRAGON five-year-old stallion drops in class for a trainer that wins at a good clip in that scenario.  (1) CHASIN RACIN pacer draws the best post and appears to be improving.  (4) WHO DEY was a game winner last out and a repeat of that effort is good enough for a big piece.

Race 7

(1) ANDERLECHT classy stallion drops out of the preferred and should be ready for a big effort; versatile.  (6) MYSTICIAN five-year-old hasn't had much luck this year but looks to be going in the right direction and owns a ton of back class.  (7) MACH DREAMER six-year-old put in a huge effort last out and should be even better second start off a layoff.

Race 8

(5) BLACKBIRD SINGING should offer a big price and has the ability to win in a suspect field.  (6) BEST EARS gelding has burned cash in three straight but appears to be facing a softer bunch.  (7) CAJON HOT SHOT gelding should be in line for a decent trip using his gate speed.

Race 9

(2) APOLLO BLUE CHIP gelding is a new horse since switching barns and appears to be able to handle the hike up in class.   (5) COOL GUY trotter has just been racing evenly but finds a field that is littered with question marks.  (3) OAKLEA UPTOWN four-year-old hasn't had a smooth transition to facing older but could be in a good spot to pick up a piece late.

Race 10

(8) ROETHBLISSBURGER gelding was facing much tougher last out and is versatile.  (2) FLEET SENSATION eleven-year-old is just now racing himself back into shape, faces a soft bunch, and just needs to work out a smooth trip.  (6) WINDSUN CALLUM gelding was a game winner last out but now makes his way to the big track and would need to step up.

Race 11

(5) SING FOR ME GEORGE drops out of the preferred after exploding home last out against better; short price.  (6) THEPANINSULAHOTEL seven-year-old also drops in class but doesn't win that often; use underneath.  (3) GD AIRLINER gelding is racing gamely but would need more against this level of competition.

Race 12

(5) PEENIE gelding loves to race and will probably be firing early; vulnerable late.  (6) SOUTHWESTERN DREAM gelding makes his first start for a new trainer who is lights-out with first timers.  (8) MONTE CRISTO gelding has yet to get his picture taken this year but did make up a ton of ground late last out.
