MEET STATS: 167 - 795 / $1,166.50  BEST BETS: 18 - 67 / $87.60

Best Bet: CINAMONY (6th)

Spot Play: HICKORY ICON (4th)


Race 1

(2) ROYAL RECEPTION Sharp in victory last out; he moves up in class but based on his nice performance, two straight is not out of the question. (6) SLAM DUNK HANOVER comes by way of Pocono and is very consistent; gelding is a big threat for top prize. (1) WORLD PEACE returns to Yonkers where he got the job done at this level; not out of this.

Race 2

(6) MODEST PRINCE Gelding is knocking at the door; last three were impressive for trainer Toscano; all systems go for win honors. (1) NEW YORK MUSCLE Trotter gets post relief and that should help his chances from the fence; player. (5) LORENZO DREAM was sitting in the pocket but could not get to the winner last out; could factor in here.

Race 3

(4) MAGIC MANNY seems to have a fondness for the $20k ranks with a second and a victory recently; can boss this group at his best. (6) TONY CHEESECAKE just held on against the top pick recently; post hurts but is very capable of double score; maybe. (2) ART DEGREE put in a rally for the fourth spot last time out; could make some noise late on the scene.

Race 4

(8) HICKORY ICON closed strongly to nail down the placing at Philly last time around; should handle the 8-hole if given a favorable trip; worth a shot. (4) GOOD DAY MATE This should be a better spot for this pacer to get back into the swing of things and Brennan is back in the sulky. (1) GAVINS DESIGNER should fare quite well from the fence.

Race 5

(4) LUCKY MCTRUCKY The last we saw this pacer locally was on February 8; was sharp in victory at Northfield last time around and could be back in solid form; we shall see. (5) CAPITAL ACCOUNT flashed good speed at The Meadows to get the job done on August 2; big threat against these. (3) GALLANT SEELSTER could make some noise in the stretch drive; maybe.

Race 6

(7) CINAMONY got back to her winning ways at Pocono last time out in a solid 1:49 3/5; clearly will be the one to deny. (6) RADAR CONTACT closed well in the Artiscape at Vernon last out for the place spot; main danger. (8) VENUS DELIGHT pocket rocket victory in the Artiscape recently; stays in the 8-hole and she is not out of this by far.

Race 7

Let’s see if (4) INTREPID HALL could put it all together; had no shot from the eight slot last week but with a inside draw tonight, he could best these with a fine-timed drive from Holland. (1) ALED HANOVER was sent down the road last out for all the glory; dangerous. (2) ROETHBLISSBERGER has wheeled off two straight victories; moves up in class but could be a exotics factor.

Race 8

(1) JUSTIFIED gets the luck of the draw; gelding can rate and score from the fence. (4) HERE WE GO AGAIN was second best in his last trip to the post but could not get to the winner; main danger. (7) BIG BOY DREAMS Sharp  qualifier at Pocono puts this guy right in the mix.

Race 9

(6) SAND BENELLI might be rounding back to form based on his recent outing; has every right to take these to task for all the cash. (1) AMERICAN FLIGHT moves down in class and was a very game second against better last out; threat. (2) DONAU gets post relief and that should help his cause; beware.

Race 10

(1) JIN DANDY seems to do his best running from the rail; fits well in here and with a favorable trip, he could put it all together for win honors. (4) CAUTION SIGNS Wire to wire victory to nail down his second straight score; the one to beat. (2) JDS CALEB MAN was up against open foes and was nailed for the victory last week upstate; watch out.

Race 11

(2) ROCKAROUND SUE was late on the scene to miss by only a length and a quarter; draws much better this time and is very capable of getting the job done over this group. (5) VALENTINA DE VIE beat lesser company for her third straight victory; contender. (4) JUSTHAVENTMETUYET faced open foes upstate last time around and closed well for the show spot; can't be overlooked.

Race 12

(1) MONKEY ON MY WHEEL Two sharp performances for this pacing mare; she has back class and with the rail slot tonight, she clearly will be quite tough to down. (2) SANDBETWEENURTOES This might be a better spot for her to contend; capable; (6) MARTY PARTY moves up the ladder off two nice efforts; exotics factor.
