MEET STATS: 284 - 1189 / $1,832.70

BEST BETS: 32 - 111 / $151.10

Best Bet: FRATERNITY (1st)

Spot Play: MARTIAL BLISS (6th)


Race 1

(1) FRATERNITY Gelding is very sharp scoring his third straight victory and clearly will be the one to deny from the fence. (2) IM THE REAL MAJOR was in the pocket most of the way but could not get to the winner Lucky Man last time out. (6) LISCLOON put in a mild rally for third money recently.

Race 2

(7) WRAPPED TO GO Pacing mare is knocking at the door based on her last three outings; ready to boss these. (5) SHE SAID moves down the ladder and this should help her cause. (3) JOKES JET gets post relief and could make some noise late.

Race 3

(4) SUMMER SNOW went down in defeat last out at 2/5 last time out, however the mare is in good form and has every right to atone for her last outing. (2) NIPPY W HANOVER just got up for win honors from the 8-hole in her most recent trip to the post; threat again. (8) ARABELLA J will be closing late.

Race 4

(2) CLASSY LANE ROSE was on the engine most of the way but was nailed for win honors last out. Pacing mare is sharp, fit and ready to greet the cameraman for pictures. (4) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY has wheeled off two straight victories against lesser. (1) IT’S A MIRACLE was very game in her last two starts and could move forward from door number one.

Race 5

(2) TWINSPEAK Sophomore gelding moves to Yonkers and gets a cozy post to take these to task for all the cash. (4) POWDER KEG was sent down the road in his last try for all the glory. (3) MR FANTASY finally receives a better post tonight and is clearly not out of this.

Race 6

(2) MARTIAL BLISS Sharp in his last two starts and this gelding appears to be heading in the right direction; gets the call. (3) WHAT I BELIEVE has four wins and two seconds in his last six tries; the main danger. (4) KING ROYALTY put in a mild rally for the fourth spot last time around.

Race 7

(1) BABY REMIND ME seems to have a fondness for the $20K claiming ranks and this pacing mare is very capable of returning back to her winning ways if she minds her manners. (4) HEY KOBE has been on the board in her last three trips and should have a say in the outcome. (5) OUR ELS DREAM N took the pocket route last time out to take down the top choice; not out of this.

Race 8

(2) LISPATTY Filly was very sharp for second money last week and she has every right to turn the tables on (8) KRISPY APPLE. The latter is on a roll scoring her third straight victory; dangerous again. (4) GLENFERRIE BRONTE N has done well in her last three tries and was second best against lesser company last week; don’t overlook.

Race 9

(7) CHANGE THE RULZ N was late on the scene from door number 8 and missed glory by a length and a half last out. Mare is rounding back to winning form and good to see Brennan with the return call; the pick. (3) NERIDA FRANCO N was sent down the road last out for the victory; threat for the repeat. (1) EDEN PAIGE N gets post relief and that should help her cause; maybe.

Race 10

(4) SINGLE ME Pacing mare has tactical speed and a favorable trip can put her right back into the winner’s circle; we shall see. (2) CHEYENNE ROBIN had a mild rally for third money recently; capable. (8) MARLEE B rallied strongly to nail down the show spot last time around; beware despite the return to door number eight.

Race 11

(2) REGIL ELEKTRA gets serious post and class relief and this mare knows how to get the job done. At her best she can boss these. (3) VELOCITY VESPA has been facing open foes upstate and has good speed. (7) DELIGHTFUL DRAGON Sharp in victory at the Meadowlands last out.
