MEET STATS: 129 - 549 / $819.00

BEST BETS: 13 - 56 / $54.30

Best Bet: WAYNE THE LEFTY (3rd)

Spot Play: MACH IT A PAR (6th)

Race 1

(5) SEA VENTURE showed little in his last trip. Gelding will need a better trip and good to see Brennan with the return call; threat at his best. (1) ART FOR ARTS SAKE put in a mild rally for show honors last out. (3) OR is knocking at the door based on his last three tries.

Race 2

(1) LATOKA retains the pole position and was a game third last out. Trotter fits well with these and could make tonight a winning one. (4) UNDERCOVER STRIKE is on a roll scoring his fifth straight victory; likely favorite. (6) ZORGWIJK NOVA has hit the board in her last six starts; not out of this.

Race 3

(1) WAYNE THE LEFTY rallied outside to nail down the place spot last week. Gelding appears to be rounding back to great form and could take these to task. (5) AUTOMATIC SLIMS was sent down the road last out for all the glory. (6) MUSTANG MACH N had good cover and just missed the victory by a length; watch out.

Race 4

(1) SPORTING THE LOOK 4-year-old gets serious post relief and the last time gelding was on the fence he was a sharp second three trips ago; ready for action. (6) DOJEA SOLO was flashing speed and led most of the way but did not have enough gas in the tank in his latest. (4) ROSE RUN QUEST Game effort for win honors recently given the fact he was uncovered.

Race 5

(5) GROUNDED left the 3-hole and attacked at the 3/4 pole to get job done last week. Mare might have found the winning touch and two straight is not out of the question. (2) LYONS SHADOW Three nice efforts put this mare right in the mix. (6) CHERRY BLISS made a rally in the lane but could not get to the winner Grounded in their last try.

Race 6

(3) MACH IT A PAR closed strongly and lost glory by 1 3/4 lengths. Pacing mare gets a better post to work with and could make amends tonight. (7) TESSA SEELSTER's last start was sent down the road but could not hold off the winner Mach It A Par in their last outing. (4) AL RAZA N With a better trip she could make some serious noise.

Race 7

(2) EXHILARATED had no chance last week but the good news is the mare moves back inside and Holland who knows this gal is back in the bike; big threat. (1) CAROBBEAN PACETRY got the job done last out via the pocket route. (6) NEFERTITI BLUECHIP is much better then in her last start and with a clean trip she can have a say in the outcome.

Race 8

You have to love the way (3) MACHO CHICK flew down the passing lane to lose glory by 1/2 length. 9-year-old mare gets post relief and that should help her cause; playable. (8) BETTOR N BETTER stayed second all the way in the pocket last out; post hurts tonight but is very capable. (5) MOSQUITO BLUE CHIP will need a better trip then in her most recent outing; maybe.

Race 9

(3) NASSAU COUNTY Gelding is sharp missing his third victory of the year by a neck. Has the tactical speed to be the boss. (5) KID PK here's another that came out of the same race as the top pick to lose glory by a nose; big threat. (4) STONEBRIDGE TONIC has scored in his last three tries and figures to be a major contender again.

Race 10

(6) DOT DOT DOT DASH seems to be coming around based on his last trip to the post. Mare can mow these down with a well judged drive from Stratton. (1) NOT AFRAID's last try most likely was used up to grab the lead from the 8-hole but now the trotter will be a serious threat from the rail. (2) SKATES N PLATES was sent down the road in his latest for all the glory.

Race 11

(6) DRUNKEN DESIRE A had live cover and mowed them down by a nose in his last start. Gelding moves up a bit but he seems to be in good form to grab another. (3) BJS BEQUIA led most of the way but was nailed by the top pick Drunken Desire A in their recent start; main danger. (7) NORTHERN PUNTER N put in a mild rally to grab the show spot last time out.
