Best Bet: MAJOR DANCER (12th)

Race 1

(2) SWEETIE HEARTS captured the faster of two divisions last week and draws inside. She's won two of her last three and likely will be the favorite. (8) TORCHES STAR dropped significant time last start and is rounding into form. She comes from a top barn and has been racing very well in her last number of starts. (3) WONDERLAND STAR won the other division last week and is the other entry of trainer Parsons. She draws inside, has gate speed and has won two straight.

Race 2

(7) WITCH DALI won last week in comfortable fashion. It was a convincing score and she looks like the horse to beat in this dash. (5) ZENOBIA BLUE CHIP raced well to finish second last week after a great trip. She has the gate speed needed and comes from a top barn. (4) REALLY READY comes out of the McNair barn and enjoys leaving the gate; may offer a price.

Race 3

(9) MIYAGI HANOVER was the favorite last week in this class and made a miscue. He's back in one week later, gets Zeron again in the bike and is worth another look. (1) HUNKOFBURNINLOVE gets the rail and is fresh off an open length victory. He moves up in class, but has the speed for this level. (10) PAZZO LINDY will have to overcome post 10, but he has speed and won last week at ease. He comes out of the Baillargeon barn and should offer a price.

Race 4

(9) SHOCK N ROCK is well-bred and closed extremely well last start to finish second, by a nose. He'll likely be the favorite in here. (2) TYMONTIMEAGAIN raced very well last start considering it was his career debut. He draws well once again and closed last week in :27. (6) SPECIAL JACKPOT comes out of the Coleman barn, which can't be overlooked. He's not on his game right now, but is versatile and capable of improving.

Race 5

(4) SLIP INTO GLIDE draws well and drops in class. He won at a higher level just four starts ago. (5) P L DALEY also drops in class and raced in the highest class three starts ago. He comes out of Montini's barn and likely will be put into play early. (10) ROCKYS FIRST has won two of his last three and gets Jamieson in the bike. He's capable of overcoming the outside and a good option for the triactor.

Race 6

(9) HES A SENSATION won in this class in his last start and will look for another victory as he heads into the Autumn Series next week. (2) LYONSSOMEWHERE draws inside and is a perfect one-for-one in his career. He moves up in class, but qualified extremely well and may be the only threat to HES A SENSATION. (8) MARCO DE VIE won in his maiden class last start and moves up. He's a good option for the triactor.

Race 7

(9) KNOWS NOTHING has been at his best in recent starts and despite a post 10 start, he looks like the horse to beat. (3) TAKE MY PICTURE finished second last start and draws inside. He has a good record this season and a lot of back class. (8) CATCH THE DREAM has finished in the top three in each of his last four starts. He's versatile and gets Zeron in the bike.

Race 8

(9) WESTERN SENATOR drops in class and that's the main reason for my selection. He has gate speed and will make his second start for trainer Fellows. (6) WILDCAT ART made a miscue last week, but has been very consistent this season. He's classified accordingly and capable of rebounding. (7) SANDYS CANDY moves into the Shepherd barn and that's the main reason for my selection.

Race 9

(6) JUSTALITTLEFASTER raced very well last week in this class and now debuts for new trainer Auciello. He has a good record this season and is capable of improving. (9)TYMAL OH SO NICE comes out of the Johnson barn and has hit the board in two of his last three. (4) ILL BE THERE draws well and enjoys being put into the race.   He has a good record this season, but hasn't raced since October 11.

Race 10

(7) STELLLLLLA comes out of the Menary barn, has a good record this season and raced very well in this class last week. (5) ARTFUL IMPULSE comes from the McIntosh camp and got a terrific trip to finish third last start. She continues to improve. (6) P L HULA hasn't had the best start to her career, but shows flashes of quick speed. She'll likely provide a decent price and races better when she's put into the race.

Race 11

(9) PALM BEACH HANOVER hasn't raced since Lexington, but was timed in 1:52 3/5. She should be able to handle this maiden class after an effort like that. (5) LUTETIA SEMALU comes out of the Moreau barn and should be better placed than last week. She has a good final quarter and figures to get a better trip. (1) SGT MOLLY PITCHER gets the rail and drops in class. She has the gate speed and a good record this season.

Race 12

(2) MAJOR DANCER won the maiden event last week with ease. That was her first start and she's certainly capable of the class jump. (4) NEGLIGENT HANOVER drops in class, draws better and comes out of the Moreau barn. (9) FINETUNE HANOVER has hit the board in four of five career starts. She's versatile and has the speed for this level.
