Race 1

(1) MONTEZUMA BLUECHIP is clearly knocking at the door based on his last three starts and now draws the rail so with that said he can get the job done against these. (4) MUSCLE BEACHBOY Gelding flashed good speed but tired in the stretch drive last out. (6) AUTOMATIC SLIMS was sharp in the pocket but could not get to the winner last time around.

Race 2

(3) HALTON HURRICANE was very wide turning for home and that might have cost him last time out but the good news is he now moves to the 2-hole and has tactical speed to grab a better spot; can take this at his best. (6) ALL ARTIST scored an easy victory last time around; post hurts tonight but he is very capable. (2) POWDER KEG came up the cones en route to glory against lesser recently.

Race 3

(5) LUCKY MAN was put up via the disqualification at 70-1 last time out and this 11-year-old seems to have a fondness for this level; gets the call. (4) CAN'T IT BE ME was sent down the road in his latest for the victory; main danger. (8) FRATERNITY's last trip he took charge and never looked back, however was placed last; not out of this despite the move to the 8-hole.

Race 4

(4) INVICTUS HANOVER did not fire in his last try but maybe this gelding will like the move to door number four; possible. (2) UPFRONT COUNTRYBOY got the job done last time out via the pocket; threat again. (5) CRIME OF PASSION leaves the far outside slot and the gelding has speed; watch out.

Race 5

(4) STYXIT TO EM N could not get to Artist Night last time out but this gelding seems to be heading in the right direction; poised to greet the cameraman for pictures. (8) ELRAMA N scored down the road last time around and it's not out of the question he can take another. (3) WHAT I BELIEVE came close to getting the job done against Elrama N in there last try; must be considered.

Race 6

(2) ROCK N ROLL XAMPLE flashed good speed against most of these last week and this pacing mare is very capable of returning to her winning ways with a well judged drive. (6) KRISPY APPLE raced evenly for fourth money recently and is always dangerous. (8) MACH IT A PAR rallied strongly to lose glory by only a length; don't count her out of this.

Race 7

(5) CARTOON DADDY is on fire scoring his fourth straight victory. 4-year-old stays in same level and should keep on his winning ways. (4) PRINCE ASTON is a new shooter from Tioga and is very consistent; big threat. (1) JK ALLNITELONG should do much better from the fence; maybe.

Race 8

(5) DO YOUR JOB was facing much better and was the chalk last time out. Pacing mare does know how to win races and hit the board 11 of 22 tries this year; quite possible. (2) SWEETNSINFUL took the pocket route on her way to glory recently. (4) HIPNUMBERONE led most of the way but was nailed in deep stretch last out; can't leave out of the mix.

Race 9

(4) HAZMATT Mare might find these to her liking and has been in the money 9 of 15 trips this year; capable at her best. (2) SIR JILLIAN Z TAM should fare better from the 2-hole if she gets the right trip. (6) GADSDEN HANOVER beat Open foes down the road last out at Batavia; not out of this.

Race 10

(4) AL RAZA N 6-year-old mare seems to be better at this level as she was very game for the score two starts ago so with that said a winning effort is clearly not out of the question. (1) BETTOR N BETTER moves down in class, gets the rail and Bartlett keeps the faith; dangerous. (3) JONSIE JONES was on the engine most of the way but did not have enough gas in the tank and she had to settle for place money last out; watch out.

Race 11

(2) GEORGINA CORNER beat lesser last out by only a nose. Trotting mare is in fine form so the rise in class should not be a problem and Bartlett has the return drive; gets the call. (1) BINGO QUEEN made a first over bid but could get to the winner in her latest; big player. (4) MIDNITE CRAZE showed good speed against Open trotters at Plainridge last time out and is back at Yonkers where she got the job done down the road; don't overlook.

Race 12

(1) MASSIVE ATTACK A takes a slight drop in class and moves to the fence. Mare can boss these with a fine-timed drive for glory. (5) REGIL ELEKTRA took charge right from the bell en route to victory last time out; dangerous again. (2) ICOMMANDMYSPIRIT was second best twice at the Meadowlands and this mare figures to be a strong contender; quite possible.
