Race 2

(1) SIM BROWN has the rail slot and Brennan signs on for the drive. Can boss these down the road. (3) FOX VALLEY STEFFEN could contend with these given a better trip than his last one. (4) STORMONT LANCELOT can be right in the mix.

Race 3

(4) WORLD CUP CULLEN gets serious class relief and that could get this pacer over the top against these; all systems go. (2) CARD KNOCK LIFE should fare quite well from the 2-hole. (5) COSMICPEDIA has tactical speed and fits well in here.

Race 4

(4) WATERSIDE CHAMP raced evenly in his last try. Based on his latest indicates he is knocking at the door and Brennan stays; the pick. (2) WAYWARD SON has good speed and should be right in the swing of things. (1) GREYSTONE CASH has wheeled off two straight victories.

Race 5

(3) SWEET JUSTICE took the pocket route but could not get to the winner last time around. Trotter should be ready to put his best foot forward. (1) ROYAL MALINDA closed well last out for the show spot, so the rail slot can help her cause tonight. (3) STIR ME UP could make some serious noise down the lane.

Race 6

(4) KRISPY APPLE put in a sharp effort in her last start. Pacing miss has every right to boss these at her best. (8) SCANDALOUS HANOVER has good speed and the 8-hole should be no problem. (7) SUMMERTIME LEA gets class relief; watch out.

Race 7

(7) BAMBINO GLIDE Pocket-rocket score last time out at Philly. Gelding seems to be in good form and two in a row is clearly not out of the question. (5) ANDIE SOPHIA Trotting mare got the job done last out against lesser. (4) BACKSTREET HANOVER could grab a share of the purse.

Race 8

(7) OBRIGADO just got up for win honors in his recent trip to the post. Trotting gelding is very sharp and Sears gets the call. (4) DWS NY YANK Very consistent gelding has fine speed; big threat. (3) HOLY HALIBUT Philly invader can be right in the hunt.

Race 9

Will take a shot with (6) ABBEYLARA to mow these down for his second straight score. (2) WHOLLY LOUY just held on for the victory in his last start. (1) DIAMOND SAID should contend from the rail slot.

Race 10

With a perfect trip, (2) HARMONY OAKS QUIKE can get back to her winning ways. (5) MAGIC STARLIGHT flashed good speed in her latest. (7) MARTY PARTY Even finish in her most recent outing at Philly.

Race 11

(1) ARCH MADNESS is clearly knocking at the door. Ten-year-old trotter seems to be ready to get back to the winning groove from the rail slot. (3) FORTUNISTA Pocono invader fits well in here. (7) THERAPUTIC Gelding could be right in the mix; watch out.

Race 12

(1) VIRGIN MARY retains the 1-hole and this pacing miss drops a notch in class. She can take this at her best. (3) CHARISMA HANOVER has tactical speed and should make some noise through the lane. (4) PANERA HANOVER was second best in her last trip to the post.
