Race 1

(1) JOKES JET has been a decent second in her last two local starts; two-year-old should graduate tonight from this spot. (3) STIRLING BELLA also raced well when last seen here. (7) J HIGH ships from Pocono, appears to have ability, but needs to overcome the poor post.

Race 2

(7) STAND GUARD has plenty of back class and raced well last out at Freehold; he's got speed and would not be a total shock. (4) STORMY NEW YORK hasn't been reliable enough to endorse as the favorite. (2) S F CIRO never wins, but should be close up from this inside post.

Race 3

(1) MACJESTIC TODDY N proved a very game uncovered winner last week and should repeat. (3) FANCY DESIRE was outbattled by the top choice; second best again? (2) SEAFOOD ANNIE hasn't put in a poor local effort in some time and she looks next best from this spot.

Race 4

(2) QUANTUM CONFIDENT returns locally at the basement claiming level and the gelding should be tough from this spot. (5) BEAUTIFUL WINDSONG woke up in a big way upon dropping to this level; big threat. (1) REL POSTAGE DUE has been awful since returning from vacation; maybe the change in scenery will help her cause.

Race 5

(5) MR GREENWELL finished very willingly from post eight last out and he may be a decent price in this competitive event. (6) CORLEONE HALL continues to suffer the post position blues; threat with a live trip. (2) SONG DREAM gets Sears in the bike tonight.

Race 6

(8) KEEMOSABE has stopped badly in his last two versus better; he'll probably have to come from off the pace tonight and if he's a big price he's worth a try. (6) CORKY BARAN has a ton of back class but he's been excuse-less in his last two. (1) FOX VALLEY YUKON drops out of claimers and draws best.

Race 7

(3) AMERICASGOTTALENT showed an improved effort last out; note the barn change here to Amber Buter. (1) TRIP HANOVER won easily last week from a similar spot; deserving favorite. (4) A LIST closed willingly in last and gets some post relief tonight.

Race 8

(3) BIG UNIT has raced well in all recent local starts and he clearly looks like the one to beat here. (4) UFDRAGONSROCKET rode the rail and never had a chance last week; he should be more involved tonight. (5) GAVINS DESIGNER was a winner at this level two back.

Race 9

(1) GEORGE JETTISON was reclaimed last week by Casie Coleman. He stays at the same level again and Brennan should be able to work out the winning trip. (3) LUCKY MCTRUCKY has good gate speed and a better draw. (2) PANONGAHELA ships from Canada and joins the Allard barn; he'll get some respect here, especially with Sears driving.

Race 10

(2) ALFREDSSON went uncovered last week versus better and could not sustain that run; he's back down in class tonight where he was an easy winner the start prior. (1) ABOMINABLE SNOWPAN hasn't been terrible in recent efforts and Stratton should take full advantage of the rail position. (3) WELLTHEREYOUGO debuts for new connections and has been racing well.

Race 11

(1) MILITARY STRATCOM was very stubborn in defeat last week; he should control the action once again. (4) GLASS PRINCE tripped out and kicked home nicely to post the upset in his second off the claim; shorter price looming tonight. (7) DINNER GUEST was a solid winner in his local return.

Race 12

(2) MY TALLIA IDEAL finished with some willing pace last week in a needed start and the talented filly can move forward tonight. (1) LEAVEUMLADY will be the favorite here but she's no gimme. (7) ZINDERELLA broke leaving last out but finished with some pace; price factor for exotics from this spot.
