Race 2

(5) TURBO MACH hasn’t been worse than second in two career starts for trainer John Pentland and now moves up in class into this NW 2. (9) THE BATTLE BEGINS comes from the Shawn Robinson barn and drops out of the Autumn Series final after a game second place finish. (2) 2 NEW PATROL has been a threat in this class as of late and generally offers a double digit price for trainer Mike Brealey.

Race 3

(1) KEN KAN WIN suffered a tough trip last week in this class and the four-year-old was parked the mile from a post 10 start before breaking in stride. (2) STUARTS DYNASTY has hit the board in each of his last three starts, including a win last week for Team Baillargeon. (10) MONTALBANO BI has been a much better since arriving in the Per Henriksen barn a few starts ago and the Donato Hanover youngster has been knocking on the door on both occasions.

Race 4

(10) GREYSTONE MOE will need to overcome post 10, but is fresh off a win for trainer Nick Gallucci. (4) NORMSTRIKESFAME has all kinds of speed to offer, but doesn’t appear to be the easiest horse to guide throughout the mile. (7) CHARLIES A FLYIN offered a low price last week and finished a disappointing eighth for trainer Steve Charlton.

Race 5

(6) ETRUSCAN HANOVER posted a winning qualifier at The Meadowlands on Nov. 7 in a speedy 1:56 1/5 and will look for his fourth win of the campaign. (10) LATOKA has hit the board in 11 of 19 starts this season and the gelding is fresh off a win last week in the debut for trainer Joe Cirasuola. (9) ROGAZZO DOLCE was a winner in his latest pari-mutuel contest with a speedy :28 3/5 final quarter.

Race 6

(5) CANT STOP is long overdue to enjoy her first career win and it may come in here with a good post this week. (8) DOCS HOLLYWOOD shows the speed over Hoosier Park and will make her first start for trainer Kevin St Charles. (9) LADY HILL draws outside again this week, but closed well last week to only be defeated less than four lengths from a post 10 start.

Race 7

(4) BIG TURN ON has been knocking on the door in each of her last two starts for trainer Ben Baillargeon. (7) MITTCENT VAN GOGH has been shy in the win column this season, but can’t be overlooked for the exactor for trainer Shane Arsenault. (1) J JS DELIVERY draws the rail and romped in his latest by over eight lengths for trainer Shawn Robinson.

Race 8

(4) ABC MUSCLES BOY has won three straight, including last week on this circuit and in this class. (8) SEVEN POINTS JESSE has also won three straight dashes and will enter the Tony O’Sullivan barn heading into this contest. (3) WALK THE PLANK has been the victim of outside post positions in his last two starts, but draws well in here and has been a proven threat.

Race 9

(9) WELCOME MARGIN will get top honours from me in this wide-open dash as the gelding shows quick speed over Northfield’s half-mile oval and was a winner in his latest pari-mutuel outing. (8) PLANS OVER comes from the Vic Puddy barn and was a winner in his latest in this class. (7) SEA STAR enjoyed a perfect two-hole trip last week in this class and settled for second for trainer Joanne Pond.

Race 10

(3) HOPETOBEFIRST was a winner in this class two starts back and draws inside once again this week for owner/trainer Stephane Bardier. (5) LOST IN PANSLATION will gain a lot of attention again this week as he faces off in the same class for high percentage trainer Jim Stewart. (1) MY MASTERPIECE draws the rail for a fourth straight week for trainer Marty Fine.
