BEST BETS: 11 - 42 / $41.00

Best Bet: WHAT I BELIEVE (9th)

Spot Play: HARDTS OR BETTOR (10th)

Race 1

(6) WAYNE THE LEFTY blasted out of the 8-hole last out and was a very game second; geared up to boss these. (1) GRANDPA DON took the pocket route home to victory in his latest. (2) VENGANCE raced evenly for the show spot in his last try.

Race 2

(5) SPORTING THE LOOK did not fire in his last start but clearly this 4-year-old knows how to win races; capable. (3) CARTOON DADDY Sharp qualifier here last week in a snappy 1:55 3/5. (6) ADONIS BAY led every step of the way but was caught at the wire for win honors last week.

Race 3

(4) BIG BAD BOSSMAN did flash speed in his most recent outing. Gelding has hit the board 4 of 9 starts with a win under his belt; possible with a well rated drive. (2) REAL FLIGHT was sent down the road last week for all the glory. (5) STOMPIN TOM CREEK rallied strongly for place honors last out.

Race 4

(6) PLAYAWAY N was quite dull from the 8-hole last time around. She fits with this group and trainer Bamond will try Kakaley to get this mare back to the winner's circle and hey she does have 3 wins to boot this year; threat. (3) GROUNDED is quite consistent with four sharp efforts in a row. (2) DRIVINGTHEDRAGON N has wheeled off two straight victories against lesser company.

Race 5

(4) HERETIC FRANCO N was never headed on her way to glory last time out. She is the speed of the speed and could top these once again with Brennan at the controls. (7) PASULTIMATEDELITE N was first up and opened up in deep stretch to get the job done last week. (5) STRINGS just missed glory by only 1/2 length.

Race 6

Pacing mare (1) CINAMONY showed signs of life last time out to lose the victory by 3/4 length. Now she moves to the fence and if Gingras gets a perfect trip for this 5-year-old mare the rest will have to settle for place money; we shall see. (5) LADY SHADOW was sent down the road but in deep stretch she was nailed by Krispy Apple for win honors last out. (2) KRISPY APPLE ran down Lady Shadow from the pocket on her way to glory recently.

Race 7

(5) GALLIE BYTHE BEACH was rallying from the cones but could not get to the top three finishers last time out. She belongs with these and with a much better trip she can make tonight a winning one. (3) MACH IT A PAR put in a game effort from the pocket to miss the score by only a head. (6) VENUS DELIGHT is clearly knocking at the door based on her last two trips to the post.

Race 8

(6) LOVINEVERYMINUTE Sharp pacing mare has good early zip and lost the score to a good mare in Medusa on April 1st. Good to see Mr. Brennan with the call and this 5-year-old has every right to boss these down the road. (5) MCCOVEY COVE is unbeaten in her two North America outings. (7) ROCK N ROLL XAMPLE moves up the ladder off four straight victories against lesser.

Race 9

(2) WHAT I BELIEVE leaves the far outside slot in what appears to be a decent group of pacers. Three starts back this gelding got the job done down the road so having said that, a covered up trip could have this 5-year-old greet the cameraman for pictures. (6) KID PK came outside to grab the lead at the 1/4 pole and never looked back last out. (5) SAMS ESCAPE will need a much better trip than in his most recent outing.

Race 10

(1) HARDTS OR BETTOR was completely parked out going the long mile and was out of contention by the half last out. Good news on the horizon for this gelding, draws the rail he could rate or be on the engine; must be considered. (5) GOLD ROCKS raced evenly as the chalk and had to settle for fourth money last time around. (3) PAMS LEGACY put in a mild rally and lost the victory by 1 3/4 lengths.

Race 11

(1) ESCUELA was third over but could not get to the top three finishers but she did only miss glory by 2 lengths. Now this mare could mow them down with a much more favorable trip. (5) CLEMENTINE DREAM has scored two straight against lesser company at the Meadowlands. (2) MONEY MAVEN gets serious class relief and that should help his cause.

Race 12

(4) DUBLIN ROSE blasted out of gate 7 right to the front but did not have enough gas in the tank and had to settle for fourth money last out. She fits well in here and good to see trainer Banca keep this gal in same company and goes back to Bartlett; ready for action. (2) KNOW IT ALL game effort from this 6-year-old mare to get up for top honors last week. (3) TIPITINA did show speed in her latest and she does belong in here.
