BEST BETS: 12 - 49 / $51.40

Best Bet: TIPITINA (9th)

Spot Play: SANTANNA ONE (7th)

Race 1

(1) OR gets serious post relief and seems to like the inside slot; threat at his best. (4) FRATERNITY comes by way of the Meadowlands and here's another that should fare well from the 4-hole. (2) DRIVE EM COWBOY has wheeled off two straight victories.

Race 2

(4) A LITTLE MORE LOVE Trotter is on the dropdown and that should help his cause. Gelding has good speed to boss this group. (3) MONEY MAVEN was sent down the road last out but did not have enough fuel in the tank and settled for the placing. (2) STORMONT PARK should find these to his liking.

Race 3

(3) AMASA AL Sharp from the fence last out to get the job done. Gelding appears to be in solid form so two straight is not out of the question. (1) ROSE RUN QUEST had a 3-hole trip and was second best to lose glory by a 1 3/4 lengths. (2) AUTOMATIC SLIMS could land a share from the 2-hole.

Race 4

(6) SPEAKING OUT Pacer did show signs of life last out with a mild bid to miss the victory by 1 3/4 lengths. With a favorable trip this gelding can put it all together. (1) LEGION OF BOOM comes by way of Canada and gets the best of the draw; threat. (4) EVERY INTENTION flashed good early speed but was flat in deep stretch last out.

Race 5

(3) GALLANT SEELSTER is quite on a roll scoring his third straight. Pacer stays in same condition so he could keep on his winning ways against these. (6) ARI ALLSTAR is clearly better than in his latest flop. (1) WHITE MOUNTAIN TOP retains the rail and does have a fondness for Yonkers.

Race 6

(1) JAG OUT Pacing mare gets another chance from the pole position. If Smith chooses to send this gal to the front the rest might have to settle for place money; factor. (8) DEVIL CHILD put in a good qualifier at Pocono last out; post hurts but is capable. (7) BETTOR N BETTER If you throw out her last try this mare had two wins at the Hilltop; watch out.

Race 7

(2) SANTANNA ONE moves into the claiming ranks and there's an indication this pacer is knocking at the door based on his last two tries. (6) IDEALBEACH HANOVER got the job done via down the road last time out. (1) NASSAU COUNTY was sharp in the pocket last out and missed glory by only a length.

Race 8

(5) CAROLSIDEAL Mare was an easy winner last out in the Matchmaker consolation. Has good form and Dube knows what to do with this 7-year-old; ready to take two straight. (8) SELL A BIT N led every step of the way in the final of the Matchmaker last time around but was caught by a very good Yagonnakissmeornot. (6) KRISPY APPLE did not fire her best last time out but she clearly is better than in her last try.

Race 9

Will try (5) TIPITINA again to put it all together. She fits well in here and was closing down the lane to lose glory by 1/2 length; can boss these at her best. (1) ELM GROVE INARUSH Got the job done wire to window at Vernon last time out. (4) OUR ELS DREAM N was on the rim at the 3/4 pole and grinded out a victory by a nose in her recent outing.

Race 10

(7) HYWAY MARCUS was very sharp to grab the place spot last out at the Big M. Gelding seems to be in good form and if Brennan can keep this 5-year-old on gait he could make tonight a winning one; we shall see. (2) RED HOT HERBIE is knocking at the door based on his last four starts. (1) E R ELLIE is better than her last flop but she is capable.

Race 11

(3) NARCIAN JEWEL was late on the scene and closed well to grab the fourth spot last out. She does know how to win races and good to see Mr. Brennan with the assignment; big threat at her best. (7) SCOOTIN FOR JOY also closed sharply to miss the victory by 3/4 length. (2) LYONS SHADOW did not race badly at Philly in her most recent effort.
