Best Bet: JERSEY BOY (5th)



Race 1

(1) IRA'S BIG GUY drops back down to the winning level and clearly looks like the one to beat from this inside post position. (6) VIPER HANOVER gave way quickly to pressure last week but didn't totally collapse in a strange effort; speed threat again. (3) TRIPLE MAJOR gets some post relief after having an impossible trip.

Race 2

(3) PASADENA STAR ships from Canada where he may have been facing better; 3-year-old seems to have found a good spot. (4) DELANO goes second start for live connections. (1) SING OUT was uninvolved last week in his return from vacation; from this spot he may have to choice but to be forwardly placed.

Race 3

(7) FEELING CAM LUCKY has put in two decent efforts since arriving locally; 2-year-old was Sears' choice of three despite the outside post. (2) UPPERCUTZ should go well from this improved post. (3) FOX VALLEY IBIS appeared to make up good ground after breaking in his local debut.

Race 4

(3) MAGIC CHEQUE drops to the basement claiming level and should be competitive here. (4) NOWERLAND FIREBIRD was a solid trip-sitting winner last week. (7) FLASHY LADY drops in price for the third consecutive start but the mare is stuck outside with little early speed.

Race 5

(7) JERSEY BOY looked like a winner last Sunday afternoon in that added-distace event but he jumped a stray pylon top stretch and broke. Gelding can redeem himself tonight. (3) ONE MORE KID behaved himself last week and trotted an even mile; gets post relief tonight. (8) LEXUS AMIGO was well driven from the eight hole last week and he's stuck outside again.

Race 6

(3) BRENT MONTANA put in a big uncovered try before tiring in his debut for new connections; he deserves another look tonight. (7) JONES BEACH returns for Allard and he looks like a good fit here. (1) SHOW ME UP didn't race badly last out getting beaten by a longshot going a big trip.

Race 7

(4) GREYSTONE CASH is on some sort of roll and he can clearly take another. (3) TALKTOMECOURAGE N is back up in class off a big effort. (1) FOUR CORNERS seems to be a shell of his former self, but I said that about the top choice a couple of months ago and look what he's done.

Race 8

(3) MY LAST CHANCE showed serious improvent in his last start and he could be a price play from this spot. (4) VENGANCE and (6) DIAMOND SAID are both speed threats and are both currently sharp.

Race 9

(4) GRANTOR HANOVER faces a very suspect field tonight and Dube may be able to work out a live trip from this midpack post. (3) IDEAL CARVER is clearly feeling good again and he can handle the hike in class. (1) DANCING IN TERROR is another that should appreciate the post relief.

Race 10

(2) CANADIAN EDITION has hit the board in six of seven for the tough Allard/Sears combo; colt is clearly the one to beat here. (4) CARRACCI HANOVER folded on the front end upon arrival in a no-excuse effort; better is expected. (1) WELL TO DO looks best of the rest from this spot.

Race 11

(4) JUSTCALLMEARNOLD just missed last out at a big price; youngster seems to be getting better and must be followed. (5) DETROIT RAPPER ships from Ohio in razor-sharp form. (2) BLIND EYE debuts for the Allard barn and the filly draws nicely.

Race 12

(3) MIDNIGHT DUDE was in a tough spot in his local debut and understandably didn't fire; more can be expected tonight. (2) MOLIERE HANOVER gets post relief but loses Bartlett. (4) CARD SHOCK has been ultra-impressive in his last two but note that he was sold and now goes for new connections.
