Race 1

(3) DOUBLESHOTASCOTCH was very sharp for the victory in his last try. Gelding can boss these for his second straight score. (7) BIG TIME ROCKS just got up for win honors recently. (1) PICTONIAN PRIDE should fare well from the rail slot.

Race 2

(1) FLEX THE MUSCLE gets class and post relief. Trotter is poised to get back on the winning track. (8) BASTILLE did show speed from the outside slot; player. (4) ELIN put in a mild rally in her latest.

Race 3

(2) NO GIN gets a cozy post to work with. Capable of taking this with Sears at the controls. (1) AUSSIE REACTOR A Gelding could have a say from the fence. (5) LONG FIGHT HANOVER has good speed and there's a good  chance he can be a factor with these.

Race 4

(2) WAYWARD SON Easy victory in his last start. Seven-year-old seems to be in fine form and two straight is clearly not out of the question. (5) JW RACER is better than his last trip. (1) SOUTHWIND CHASE The rail and speed puts this gelding in the mix.

Race 5

(1) AS YALL LIKE IT has good early trot. She is back in the 1-hole where this gal got the job done two starts ago. (4) ROSSINI moves down the scale and that could help his cause. (3) BLACKTUXWHITESOCKS just missed the score in his latest.

Race 6

(8) MONKEY ON MY WHEEL Very consistent pacing mare can mow these down at her best. (5) CAMILLE put in a late bid for the show spot last time out. (7) ROBIN CRUISER has wheeled off two straight victories.

Race 7

(1) PUTNAMS ATTACK put in a good effort in his last one. Gelding receives the best of the draw and could get back to his winning ways. (2) JUST THAT & (5) COSMICPEDA both of these contenders get post relief; watch out.

Race 8

(4) THERAPUTIC Moving up in class could be a good sign for this trotter to take home all the bacon based on his last two starts here. (2) MUGSHOT JESS could be in the mix. (6) HARBOR POINT will need a better trip than in his last start.

Race 9

(5) HOT RODDY closed well in his last one. Gelding has every right to move forward in this event. (3) FUTURE CHARACTER drops in class and has fine speed; threat. (1) BACK TO THE WEST was sent down the road last out for all the glory.

Race 10

(5) REPORT FOR DUTY N Old pro should be well suited cutting back to one mile. (4) ABOMINABLE SNOWPAN is better than his last try. (2) ER ROOM moves back inside where he went down the road three starts ago.

Race 11

(6) POLITICAL DESIRE got the job done in his Pocono finale. Trotter is very capable of taking two in a row & Brennan signs on to drive. (2) BOUNCING BAX came close to getting the job done last out; main danger. (1) POSSESSED FASHION gets class relief; beware.

Race 12

(5) COFFEE ADDICT Pacing miss closed too late and had to settle for show honors. Ready to roll tonight. (1) VENUS DELIGHT has fine speed and the rail slot can help his cause. (2) BEST BOSS could land a share of the purse.
