Best Bet: SIR LEHIGH Z TAM (8th)

Spot Play: I DO IT MYSELF (5th)


Race 1

(4) TONY CHEESECAKE Sharp in his last start; he only missed by half a length so with that said, gelding can top this group at his best. (5) CHEROKEE HIFLYZANE showed excellent speed in his initial try here; main danger. (2) LISCLOON should do much better from the 2-hole; watch out.

Race 2

(1) MODEST PRINCE was quite good closing for the show spot last week at Philly; gets the rail and Dube signs on to drive; threat. (3) CROSBYS CLAM BAKE is another Pennsylvania invader that showed two good efforts; main danger. (2) ROLLS BLUE CHIP needs a better trip then his previous start; maybe.

Race 3

(5) CANBEC KINGKAZIMIR makes his return to Yonkers where this gelding just missed the victory on July 20th; has every right to take these down the road for all the glory. (4) BRETT MCFAVRELOUS was late on the scene to nail down the third spot in his recent trip; figures in here. (3) WESTERN ROCKSTAR A was odds on at Pocono and did not disappoint the chalk players last out; not out of this.

Race 4

(4) MACH PRIDE moves up in class but however, this one seems to be rounding back to good form based on his latest; all systems go. (3) DREAMLANDS ART is knocking at the door; raced evenly last time out; big player. (2) ROETHBLISSBERGER Easy victory in his last try makes this guy the one to fear.

Race 5

(3) I DO IT MYSELF almost got the job done last out to lose by only 3/4 of a length; mare can boss this group at her best. (4) MONKEY ON MY WHEEL gets class relief and has good speed; dangerous. (5) ROCKAROUND SUE came close to a victory against lesser company last week; don't overlook.

Race 6

(7) SET ME UP makes her return to the Hilltop; got the job done at Philly on July 31st and fits well with this group; ready for action. (6) ICOMMANDMYSPIRIT is very consistent finishing 1st and 2nd in her last four starts; big player. (4) HER OWN LAND closed strongly to grab the show spot last out at Saratoga; beware.

Race 7

(1) SPREESTER jumps up in condition but gets the rail slot and Brennan is back in the sulky; seems ready to take these to task for all the cash. (2) KEENE OLIVIA Speedy pacing miss will be on the engine right from the bell; factor. (5) COCOA BEACH was second best in her latest and figures to make some serious noise in the stretch run.

Race 8

(5) SIR LEHIGH Z TAM Pacing mare will need a favorable trip to capture this event; did show some early zip in her last try; could put it all together. (3) STRINGS can contend with these if she return to her July 30th trip; maybe. (1) CHEYENNE MIRIAM moves back to the rail where this mare was a solid third three trips ago; don't count her out of this.

Race 9

(4) ALED HANOVER did not have the best of trips last out however gelding has hit the board 7 of 11 starts this year; poised to get the job done against these. (3) ROCK ICON was quite good for the placing at Saratoga last out; player. (1) BOILER BREES moves to the fence and that should help his cause.

Race 10

Trainer Jennifer Sabot pushes the down button on (8) FORT KNOX and this seems to be a perfect spot for this guy to best these despite the move to the 8-hole. (3) JUSTIFIED has wheeled two seconds in a row; main danger. (1) SOLAR SURPRISE put in a solid effort to miss the victory by a head; not out of this.

Race 11

(7) JDS CALEB MAN fits with these; just got up for win honors on July 24th so if he can revert to that effort, it will be game over for the rest. (4) RAMPAGE JACKSON blew the doors off the competition last week; makes this one a big threat again. (3) CAUTION SIGNS speedy pacer was nailed for the score last out; should be right in the mix.

Race 12

(3) GOLD ROCKS was over his head in his last start; returns to a winning level and could top this group if he can go back to his winning ways two starts ago. (1) MIKEY HANOVER closed late to grab the victory recently; not out of the question for the repeat. (2) SNAP TO IT A is knocking at the door based on his last three tries; watch out.
