MEET STATS: 6 - 41 / $39.40

BEST BETS: 1 - 4 / $2.80

Best Bet: HEY KOBE (10th)

Spot Play: GREYSTONE CASH (2nd)


Race 1

(2) JOHNNY Z was very sharp for the placing last time out and this 11-year-old gelding has every right to put his best foot forward. (1) N J LAW should appreciate the move to the rail; maybe. (5) ROCKEN CAMNATION rallied strongly to nail down the show spot in his recent attempt; watch out.

Race 2

(3) GREYSTONE CASH was sluggish in his last try, but the good news is he moves inside and should flash speed against these; threat at his best. (4) ETHAN HANOVER was a game second missing glory by only three-quarters of a length; main danger. (1) AUTOMATIC SLIMS gets post relief and should be a factor from the fence.

Race 3

(1) NOBLES FINESSE was sent down the road in his latest for all the marbles. Gelding retains the rail and gets the services of Brennan, so two straight is clearly not out of the question. (4) LYONS AGAIN was on the lead most of the way, but was nailed for win honors by a pocket-rocket Given up Terror recently. (8) CARTOON DADDY makes his 2017 debut from an outside slot, but is quite capable.

Race 4

(1) MAINLAND KEY N is knocking at the door based on his last four starts and the move from the 8-hole to the rail can have this 12-year-old pro greet the cameraman for pictures. (5) WINTER BLAST blew the doors off his competition last time out but now will have to get it done against a better group; possible. (8) GRIN FOR MONEY got the job done wire to window last out; post hurts but could contend with these.

Race 5

(1) CAVIART CARI ANN has fine speed and now she moves to the rail; big threat for win honors. (6) MOMAS GOT A GUN closed strongly to nail down the place spot last week; could move forward. (3) ICOMMANDMYSPIRIT took charge at the half-mile marker but did not have enough gas in the tank and held show money in her last try; watch out.

Race 6

(6) HIDDEN LAND is a very consistent mare that knows how to get the job done. A favorable trip can make her night a winning one. (5) BETTOR N BETTER grabbed the lead turning for home but was caught by some of these last out; big threat. (7) EMPRESS DEO is a Dover invader that has been in the exacta picture in her last six starts; not out of this.

Race 7

(1) WRANGLER MAGIC was on the engine most of the way, but was nailed for the score by Delightful Dragon last time around. She is clearly knocking at the door and the move to door number one can put her right into the winner's circle. (3) TRUTH AND LIBERTY just missed the victory by a head in her Meadowlands finale; main danger. (5) TYRA has been facing open foes at Dover and she is not out of this by far.

Race 8

(2) INTREPID HALL raced evenly in his last start, so that might be an indication he can get back into the winning grove if he mind his manners. (1) MACHMILLIONS gets serious post relief and Brennan keeps the faith; big player. (8) A PLUS HANOVER does not get the best of post positions but gelding fits with these; don't overlook.

Race 9

(2) COPPER COAST A was a good third last out and now this 7-year-old gets a cozy post to get back to his winning ways; we shall see. (4) ADDWATER was sent down the road en route to an easy victory last time around; factor again. (1) MIGHTY PERUVIAN N leaves the 8-hole for post one and has tactical speed; beware.

Race 10

(2) HEY KOBE closed well to grab the show spot against better last time out. Mare seems to be back to winning form and it is good to see Dube stays in the bike; the pick. (3) FOR THE LADIES N needs to revert to her 12-16 try to be a factor against these; possible. (5) CHEYENNE ROBIN moves down in class and gets a better post; watch out.
