Race 1

(3) DREAMLUCK drops in class, lands a better post and returns to Brennan; lots to like. (5) WISHER should show more in his second start off the layoff. (2) STEUBEN N has shown nothing in recent starts but on his best day he can be competitive with these.

Race 2

(2) BASTILLE isn't the most reliable trotter out there but he's a proven money-maker and he should be live from this inside post. (1) NOBLE WARRAWEE offered a decent second-place effort last week; he may be the favorite from this spot. (4) BOB N TONY returns to Holland and also drops in class.

Race 3

(5) MEETBEHINDTHEBARN brushed and crushed two back at this level with Brennan driving. (3) PRICELESS EDITION gets a better post and looks like the main threat to the top choice. (1) ARTS DELIGHT bottomed out a weak field last week.

Race 4

(1) CELEBRITY BLUECHIP was uncovered last out and paid the price late; he's in line for a much smoother trip tonight. (3) CELTIC MERCHANT is back to a catch-driver and was performing well in the Billings; veteran has speed. (6) FORT VALLEY AS woke up in last with an easy wire-to-wire score.

Race 5

(5) PEMBROKE ALEC BUSH will blast to the front; maybe he lasts, maybe he doesn't. (2) COSMICPEDIA had some willing late pace last week; worth a look. (3) MAJOR STONE tripped out to victory in last; I guess two in a row isn't impossible.

Race 6

(8) FEELING YOU faces a tough task from post eight but she's arguably best and may be a halfway decent price from out there. (5) SIR JILLIAN Z TAM is back in the Open ranks after charging home for the win; she's proven herself at this level in the past. (4) ROCK N LOAD was caught uncovered into a rated pace last week; forgive her for that effort.

Race 7

(5) CLASSY LANE ROSE had plenty of pace but was jammed in traffic last out; smooth sailing takes this. (4) LORRIE PLEASE was a winner two back with Sears in the bike. (6) ROCK N SOUL was sold privately and debuts for Larry Remmen; she's missed a couple of weeks.

Race 8

(4) BRANDOS MUSCLE MAN gets a favorable spot tonight and he looks like the one to catch. (3) HAULIN LASER added hobbles last week and went an unreal trip to score versus lesser. (7) WATKINS is stuck outside again but he could be considered for a share.

Race 9

(3) ROYAL KNOCKOUT had some minor traffic issues last week; getting the red-hot Brennan could help her cause. (5) MIBESTKEPTSECRET returns locally at a reduced level for a barn that's had plenty of success here. (4) PHONE TERROR showed life in her second start for Lachance.

Race 10

(1) JUSTA REBEL sometimes needs some racing luck but he's as good as any  in here; he may be a bit of an underlay with Sears driving. (3) POINTE OF HONOUR bumps up off a sharp score and he could be a price play here. (8) LORENZO DREAM won't be sitting last, that's for sure. Does he have enough speed to get the top?

Race 11

(3) FLASHY LADY returns to trainer Brandon Simpson in the bike, who steered this mare to two straight local wins last month. She's worth a look in a race with no standouts. (5) I'M FABULOUS could be a closing threat with the right setup. (4) HESGOTLEGS gets some class relief, could be competitive.

Race 12

(1) COCOA BEACH finally gets the post relief she craves; short price looming in the finale. (5) COLLAGE returns locally for live connections and she should be involved early. (8) MISS ANNIE J has ability but the eight hole may do her in; let's try to get her on the ticket at a price.
