Race 1

Race 2

(6) SON OF NORDIC takes a meaningful drop in class and is capable of having the top in two steps. (5) IMPERIAL PHOTO gets tested for class but has never been better. (3) UPFRONTSTRIKESGOLD ships from Pocono and may awaken.

Race 3

(3) LONG FIGHT HANOVER has had tough trips in his last three but has raced gamely in all; ready to score. (1) UPFRONT ELLIJAY ED has been second best in his last four and the Brainard trainee looms a big player from this spot. (6) CUTTY SHARK is a solid bottom-level claimer and he must always be considered.

Race 4

(4) GAELIC AND GARLIC took his shot and flattened last out but it was an improved effort; gelding should be competitive with these. (3) SEAGRAM steps up in class off a good front-end score. (5) STORMONT LANCELOT isn't the safest horse out there but he can trot up a storm when in the mood.

Race 5

(8) MR WEB PAGE has been a terror beating up on lesser in his two starts since joining the Burke barn; with the slightly added distance here Brennan should be able to get him rolling early. (2) FLEX THE MUSCLE was treated rudely last out; prior efforts were good. (4) CELEBRITY BOMBAY ships in off a big effort at Pocono and Sears drives.

Race 6

(6) VENUS DELIGHT has been super since joining the Fraley barn and she can take another despite the move outside. (1) FASHION MYSTERY looks like she's tailed off in her last few but if you look down the program a bit further she's a good fit, especially from the inside. (7) CAMPANILE could be a closing threat, but seems tough to take on top.

Race 7

(4) LORENZO DREAM drops from the Open ranks, will head to the front and should take these the distance. (6) ZOOMING should be more involved than he was last out. (1) SWISHNFLICK is sharp but she gets tested for class tonight.

Race 8

(8) WISHING STONE totally dominated two back when last seen here, and last week surged past a solid field at Pocono. Only problem here is the post. (4) DEWYCOLORINTHELINE returns to Stratton in the bike and he merits consideration. (6) OBRIGADO was the Open winner when last seen here but it looks like this group is slightly tougher tonight.

Race 9

(3) HANDSOFFMYCUPCAKE didn't fire last week versus better; there's no standouts tonight and she can be close enough to strike. (2) LITTLE SANTAMONICA returns locally and she's raced well here in the past. (1) MARTY PARTY has missed a couple of weeks off a weak effort; she should be better off with a rail trip.

Race 10

(5) REPORT FOR DUTY N took it easy last out after missing time; he should revert back to his front-running style tonight. (2) INSANE IN SPAIN has been rock-solid in his last two and he draws well again. (1) MEETBEHINDTHEBARN jogged last week but he meets tougher tonight.

Race 11

(2) ITZAZIAM has Sears driving in his local return and he looks like he can control the action here. (1) FORYOUALMOSTFREE needs to stay up close for his best chance. (4) HEZATRAIN may be forwardly placed from this spot.

Race 12

(3) VIRGIN MARY is back at the level where she was a game winner two back; mare faces a couple of tough rivals in here but she may be up to the task. (4) ROCKAROUND SUE was tossed aside by Royal Cee Cee N last week after an uncovered trip; no shame in that. (1) COFFEE ADDICT faces tougher after a game uncovered win.
