Best Bet: BEST SAID (12th)

Spot Play: PLAY FAIR (8th)


Race 1

(1) OYSTER BAY drops, draws better and should control this from start to finish. (2) KID COURAGEOUS A got roughed up last week; chance for a smoother trip tonight, perhaps even from the pocket. (3) AMASA AL isn't much but he may be able to secure a piece from this spot.

Race 2

(6) MUSCLESPRINCTONIAN looks like an underachiever but should have enough ability to beat these; Buter double? (3) MOVEUP finally gets an inside post. (1) MUSCULARITY was far back last week at 1/9 after breaking; obviously we must match the start closely.

Race 3

(7) HOLD ALL BETS must have some physical issues because he's only started seven times in his career but he ships in to the Brainard barn and gets a big driver change to Bartlett. (1) PAIN IN THE GLASS was nowhere last week upon arrival but he draws best tonight. (3) FAIRYTALE PRINCE caught my eye two back with a solid close.

Race 4

(3) DO IT FOR ANNIE was too far back to threaten last week; prior effort from an inside post was solid. (1) NOWERLAND FIREBIRD is a speed threat from the best post. (4) WINWOOD SCOUT looks next best in a weak field.

Race 5

(2) SIR KENSINGTON was well placed last week coming to the half but made a break. Another chance. (7) ENDURO HANOVER gets a big driver upgrade to Bartlett. (4) SING OUT has some back class for Lachance and he qualified nicely.

Race 6

(3) H HALL was used a bit harder than I thought he would be last week and he weakened late; I'm staying on board for another try. (1) LEGAL LITIGATOR has loads of speed but he hasn't been able to sustain it recently. (5) GREYSTONE CASH is classy and has maintained his form for an extended period of time; when does he cycle downward?

Race 7

(3) MARKUP HANOVER made only his first start of the season last out and he can build off that effort. (6) TERRACINA AS was uninvolved last week; capable of better. (4) MY INSPIRATION is a filly from Smedshammer that has some stakes experience.

Race 8

(1) PLAY FAIR is another classy Lachance trotter that could take these the distance from his inside starting spot. (4) DECK THE HALLS broke leaving last out; threat if he stays flat tonight. (7) ONE MORE KID is another in here that could be forwardly placed.

Race 9

(2) GYMOKEE JERRY has raced well in all his recent starts and he looms the one to beat tonight. (3) CARRACCI HANOVER is a new addition to the Lachance barn; does he need a start? (4) WELL TO DO can save ground and hold for a share.

Race 10

(2) MACK'S GOLD BAND jogged last week versus lesser with Merton in the bike; sharp sort can repeat. (3) STORMONT LANCELOT may draw off by 10 lengths, or may break and be far back; your call. (1) WELL CONNECTED KID was a solid winner three back at this level.

Race 11

(4) SENTRY closed well in his last two races; he has a chance to run down the speed here with a smooth trip. (2) SUN OF A VICTORY has placed just behind the streaking Cocotier in his last three. (3) VALLEY GLIDER showed good speed but couldn't last in his latest effort.

Race 12

(2) BEST SAID finally returned to the win column last week with a solid effort and he gets a free ride in this class; repeats. (4) UF ROCKIN DRAGON was aggressively handled in last and did hold for a board spot. (1) SHADOWBRIAND draws best upon arrival for sharp connections.
