Race 1

(7) JOLLY JUBITER Sharp effort for the victory last out. Repeat is not out of the question despite the move to the 7-hole. (3) WORLD CUP CULLEN just got up for win honors recently. Big threat. (8) CHINA DREAM has fine speed. Should be right in the mix.

Race 2

(6) LUTETIUM Upstate invader last time out went down the road for all the glory. Catches a weak group of trotters and can boss these for his second straight score. (2) ROYAL MALINDA gets post relief. Might contend in here. (3) KLM EXPRESS completes the trifecta.

Race 3

(3) JETTY is seeking his first victory of the year. Gelding has tactical speed and good to see Brennan at the helm. (4) LEGAL LITIGATOR makes his initial start of 2015. Has speed to be a major factor. (6) AZOREANSAILOR could land a share of the purse.

Race 4

(2) CRIMSON CRUISER He is knocking at the door. Sears takes a shot with this gelding in hopes get the job done. (5) IM THE REAL MAJOR moves down in class and that might help his cause. Threat. (4) ROCKIN RAMBARAN last out went down the road for the score. Watch out again.

Race 5

(2) DIAMONDKEEPER is on a roll scoring his fourth in a row. Has the two slot for this event, clearly the one to deny. (4) FOX VALLEY DEUCE came up a little short for win honors last week. Main danger. (1) JACK ATTACK retains the fence. Has tactical speed, not out of this.

Race 6

(2) RD IOU Pacing miss could rate and flash speed. Can get it done at her best. (7) DELIGHTFUL DRAGON rallied strongly to nail down the victory in her latest. Big player. (3) SWEETNSINFUL moves up the scale based on her last sharp victory. Beware.

Race 7

(5) CAVIART KEY If this pacer can get the perfect trip, it's light's out for the rest of these. Maybe. (6) STOLEN CAR Even finish in his last one and he's seeking his first win of the year. Can't count him out of this. (3) RAMPAGE JACKSON Sharp qualifier here last week puts this guy in the hunt.

Race 8

(2) SANTANNA ONE Very keen gelding has hit the board in his last four starts. At his best, he could rate and score for win number one in 2015. (1) THIRTY TWO RED ran down the early leaders for the score in his latest. Contender again. (8) RU READY TO ROCK moves down a bit in class. Watch out.

Race 9

(6) BOX CAR JOHNNIE ran third in his most recent trip to the post. Seems to be moving in the right direction and could take this with a fine-timed drive from Lachance. (4) IDEAL FASHION put in two sharp efforts. Main danger. (1) SAMS ESCAPE goes for a new barn and rallied nicely for show honors last time out. Don't overlook.

Race 10

(3) ROYAL KNOCKOUT put in a very good effort nailing down the victory in her latest. Pacing miss should be on her toes to make it a double. (2) HANDSOFFMYCUPCAKE She is knocking at the door based on her last two tries. Threat. SCOOTIN FOR JOY has sharp speed. Not of this by far.

Race 11

(1) KEYSTONE WANDA retains the rail slot for the finale. Mare appears to have found her best and a perfect trip might get her back to the winner's circle. (6) ROCKAROUND SUE closed well to grab the show spot last time out. Second best. (3) BAZOOKA TERROR is back at Yonkers off a nice closing second place finish at Philly last week.
