MEET STATS: 305 - 927 / $1688.30  BEST BETS: 44 - 74 / $151.00

Best Bet: CINAMONY (8th)

Spot Play: FEELS LIKE MAGIC N (3rd)


Race 1

(1) MAYFLOWERMOONSHINE got the job done at Saratoga last week, now moves downstate and draws the rail slot; ready to boss these with Brennan at the helm. (4) VODKA IS TERROR has put in two seconds in a row; main danger. (3) TOUCH AND GO rallied strongly to nail down the show spot last out; beware.

Race 2

(1) MONROE COUNTY Very consistent mare has been on the board in his last 7 starts; now trotter moves to the fence and has every right to return to the winner's circle. (6) FOR YOU ALMOSTFREE Tough break in his latest; stays in same condition and could atone. (2) CASHONTHEROCS is on the dropdown and that might help his cause; maybe.

Race 3

(6) FEELS LIKE MAGIC N was sharp to grab the place spot last time out; he seems to be heading in the right direction and could be ready to put his best foot forward. (1) MORTAL ZIN has hit the board in his last three starts; threat. (4) GOBAN is better than his last flop; don't overlook.

Race 4

(1) URBANA BAYAMA flashed good speed in his last trip to the post; with a relaxing trip he could top these at his best. (2) DUEL IN THE SUN just held on for win honors in his latest; appears to be the main danger. (5) DREAMLANDS ART Very sharp last out to miss the score by a neck; not out of this.

Race 5

(5) INVICTUS HANOVER Gelding has scored in his last three starts; moves up the ladder but his solid form makes this guy a major player again. (3) SIX GUN gets serious post relief and that should put this gelding in the mix; possible. (8) COACH CAL has hit the board in his last 6 starts; very capable despite the bad draw.

Race 6

(7) DELIGHTFUL DRAGON closed strongly to grab the show spot but was moved up to second in his last trip to the post; this should be a perfect spot for this mare to get the job done over these. (2) LUCULIA A was nailed for win honors last time out; big threat. (3) COCOA BEACH did put in a good effort last out but was DQ'd from the placing; could have a say in the outcome.

Race 7

(1) LAUXMONT CAPRI gets post relief and Brennan takes over this pacing gelding; can boss these if he reverts back to his September 21st start. (3) SMOOTH CRIMINAL should be a major player with the move to the 3-hole; watch out. (8) LORD OF MISRULE moves down in class; post hurts but is very capable; beware.

Race 8

(8) CINAMONY Tough loss at odds on last time out; expect Brennan to send this pacing miss on the engine; ready to atone. (7) ANNDROVETTE is back with her friends and could contend with this group. (5) CAROLSIDEAL might fare well from the 5-hole; maybe.

Race 9

(1) ARI ALLSTAR is back to the fence where this gelding closed well to nail down the victory on September 4th with Bartlett at the bike; now he returns on this 4-year-old and at his best, he can boss these. (2) SANTANNA ONE has wheeled off two straight victories and figures to be a exotics factor again. (3) IDEAL RACE gets Brennan and has tactical speed; don't overlook.

Race 10

(3) STORMUNN Her last two starts maybe an indication she is ready to get back into the winner's circle; we shall see. (1) SIR JILLIAN Z TAM gets post relief and that should help her cause; dangerous. (5) RD IOU did show good speed in her last start; could make some noise in deep stretch.

Race 11

(3) SAMS ESCAPE Gelding fits in here off his second straight score; the one to deny. (5) JUSTIFIED late surge to grab the show spot last out; serious player. (6) JDS CALEB MAN Three sharp tries makes this gelding a exotics factor again.

Race 12

(3) SOLID QUEEN Very sharp pacing miss just missed her second victory in a row last out; can take these to task for all the cash. (2) LITTLE MISS HENRY She must be considered based on her last two; threat with Brennan. (4) ROCKAROUND SUE was sent by Bartlett down the road last out for all the glory; can't be counted out despite the rise in class.
