Best Bet: COPPER COAST A (4th)

Spot Play: SUTTON SEELSTER (3rd)

MEET STATS: 280 - 1170 / $1,825.90

BEST BETS: 48 - 113 / $188.20


Race 1

(4) MAINLAND KEY N did not have the best of trips in his Philly finale. Veteran is very capable of getting the job done with a well judged drive. (7) SAMS ESCAPE was sent down the road in his latest for all the glory. Post hurts but he could contend with these. (2) SOLO STORY put in a good qualifier here last week; watch out.

Race 2

Hopefully (3) DIABANDO will get a favorable trip. He did show signs of life in his last try; using. (2) SOS JUSTIFIED gets serious post relief and that should help his cause; maybe. (5) BACKUP A is clearly knocking at the door; not out of this.

Race 3

(2) SUTTON SEELSTER showed good early pace in his latest and he could be ready to put his best foot forward; gets the call. (4) LYONS AGAIN rallied strongly to nail down the show spot last time around; threat. (1) BRUNELLO N has put in two good efforts in a row and he must be considered in all the exotic slots.

Race 4

(1) COPPER COAST A finally gets a serious post, has the speed and Bartlett has the assignment; the pick. (3) CARD SHOCK was no match for the top two last time out but he has done quite well here in the past; factor. (2) BET THE MOON should fare much better from door number two; we shall see.

Race 5

(1) QUICK ASA TRICK  N was on the lead most of the way but did not have enough gas in the tank in his previous trip to the post. If he gets the right trip he can greet the cameraman for pictures. (3) MR MATCH ON BEACH got the job done via the pocket last out; player again. (2) SHINOBU HANOVER showed speed but had nothing in the stretch drive recently; could have a say in the outcome.

Race 6

(1) HE'S MARVALOUS is back on the fence where this gelding took home top prize at Plainridge down the road; ready for action. (6) MY MIND IS MADEUP raced evenly for fourth money in his last trip; factor. (2) IN THE HUDDLE flashed good early zip in his Saratoga finale; don't overlook.

Race 7

(3) HIGHLAND TARTAN is on the dropdown and has tactical speed. At his best he can make tonight a winning one. (7) BEAST MODE put in a fine effort for place money recently; could move forward despite the move to door number seven. (6) MELMERBY BEACH flashed speed against better company last out so this should be a better fit for this six year old; watch out.

Race 8

(1) DEWAR N SODA moves back to the rail and this gal has good speed to top these if she is given a favorable trip. (3) MORE THAN MANY has hit the board in her last five tries and she must be considered in all the exotic slots. (4) HIDDEN LAND will need a better trip to contend in here; quite possible.

Race 9

(4) LAWGIVER HANOVER Two good starts in a row and sharp speed will make this pacer a win candidate. (2) A SWEET RIDE came up the fence to grab the victory in his latest; threat again. (5) MIDNIGHT DYLAN N has been picking up checks and he does have tactical speed; not out of this.

Race 10

(2) AMBRO COURAGE N moves back inside where this mare was a very game second two trips ago; using. (1) BROWN BRINNY retains the pole position and she must be considered against these. (5) SECRETS OUT N gets post relief and Bartlett gets the call; beware.

Race 11

(2) NEWBORN SASSY leaves the 8-hole for a much better slot. Took care of these two starts back so this gal knows how to get back into the winner's circle; the pick. (4) LADY SHADOW was facing tougher now she moves to a softer spot and gets the services of Mr. Bartlett; big threat. (3) BEST OF JENNA has seemed to step up her game and she was a sharp second against some of these last out; don't overlook.

Race 12

(2) KNOW IT ALL raced evenly for to grab the fourth spot in her last start. Trainer Abbatiello calls on Bartlett to get this gal right back into the winner's circle; factor. (3) SASSA HANOVER could not get past a stubborn Delightful Dragon here on November 17; could be right in the mix. (5) ALL ABOUT MADI gets class relief and she is knocking at the door; watch out.
