MEET STATS: 44 - 168 / $317.50

Best Bet: PEMBROKE PRAYER (11th)    Spot Play: FORCE NINE (2nd)

Race 1

(8) WESTERN DEXTER put in a mild rally in his recent trip. Gelding can move forward off that effort. (4) SPANK ME FRANK Ten-year-old has done his best racing at the Hilltop. (1) ARTIC STRETCH Maybe the rail can help his chances.

Race 2

(1) FORCE NINE drops in class, moves to the fence and top pilot Brennan stays. Also dropping is (2) SPECIAL COMMAND, and the six-year-old has shown speed at times. (5) HOLLY HILL MASTER could land a share.

Race 3

(5) WHYDIDIGETITALL This could be a better spot for this seven-year-old gelding and Brennan keeps the faith. (1) WICKED N RUDE has good late pace and he can move forward from the rail slot. (6) FOURTH PAGE could have a say with these.

Race 4

(2) FOREVER GOOD Game effort for the place spot recently and Bartlett now takes over. (1) JOLLY LESTER Consistent pacer looks live from the fence. (4) YES HANOVER Down the road score against lesser.

Race 5

(1) UP FRONT JERRY has been perfect in 2012 and he is clearly on top of his game. (7) MILITARY STRATCOM is consistent and just held on for the victory last out. (2) DAN CHAZ Gelding gets post relief.

Race 6

(6) BLING Six-year-old miss needs to return to her back class and Pantaleano returns on this gal; capable at best.  (3) RIDGE JUMPER Pena trainee has good speed. (2) RAMONA DISOMMA She has scored two in a row against lesser.

Race 7

(5) WYGANT PRINCE is knocking at the door and pilot Manzi sees fit to stay aboard this trotter. (4) S F ACEINTHEHOLE Easy score against lesser recently.  (2) BENNS SURE THING just got up for win honors last time out.

Race 8

(5) FOOLS REVENUE moves back to the five hole where this trotter got his last score. (8) SON OF NORDIC is sharp with two down the road victories. (6) RINGSIDE LAURYN got the hat trick done last week against lesser company.

Race 9

(6) HIGH SPEED LIFE She showed good early zip against better company. Has every right to move forward. (1) LEGERDEPAN just got up for the show spot in her recent try. (2) MY GAL MYKENNA returns the half-mile oval and Brennan gets the call.

Race 10

(5) CHEYENNE TRISH takes a slight drop in class and that might help her chances with these. (2) HULAS Z TAM put in a fine effort in her last try. (6) UP FRONT CRUISER has good early zip and Brennan stays at the controls.

Race 11

(1) PEMBROKE PRAYER drops in class, has speed, the rail and Bartlett. Deserving choice over these. (3) DEFEND THE ROCK can fare quite well with the post relief. (5) PIO POWER could land a share.

Race 12

(5) EVERYMILEAMEMORY seems to be coming around to good form. She just needs a perfect trip. (2) P NOTE BLUE CHIP put in a mild rally in her recent try. (4) MONOCHROMATIC moves down the ladder and has good early zip.
