Race 1

(6) STIRLING BELLA raced pretty well last week and she gets a weak vote based on that effort. (4) CAN CAN CRUISER will attract attention, especially with Sears on the return drive. (1) HAWK WILD collapsed on the front end last week and is tough to endorse tonight.

Race 2

(1) LIKE A HUSH went evenly last week and should benefit from that needed start; lots to like tonight starting from the rail. (7) KAPTAIN MAC DADDY raced well upon arrival and he can build off that effort. (5) MM'S LUCKY BOY is accustomed to facing much better.

Race 3

(5) BAY FISHEN DOC gets a slightly improved post and has some speed; maybe. (3) LILSHARKSHOOTER has plenty of experience over this surface; with Manzi not driving (get well soon!) it remains to be seen who's in the bike. (1) PUTNAMS ATTACK ships from The Meadowlands with no current form but at least he draws best.

Race 4

(5) FASTER FASTER clearly needed last week's start and she's shown speed in the past. (2) HAPPY APPLES will benefit from the improved post. (1) AMERICAN SHUTTLE has speed, but endurance has been the issue.

Race 5

(1) STORMY NEW YORK has never been one of my favorites but he's been racing well for a live barn. (3) GET PACKIN is a terror at this level; I still want to know why he didn't leave the gate in his last race. (4) IMA SPUR was on the move when he broke last week.

Race 6

(3) BIG BAY POINT drops in class, will be on the lead in two steps and he can take these the distance. (4) COSMICPEDIA has hinted at ability and he also gets class relief. (5) NATURAL HABITAT was an easy winner when last seen here at this level.

Race 7

(2) NEWBEGINING was facing better when last seen here, and he had some success at that higher level. From this inside post and with Sears driving he looks like the one to beat. (4) MARINER SEELSTER hit the board last week at The Meadowlands; that makes him a player here. (1) CRUISING YANEE has been awful since the Banca claim; can he turn it around?

Race 8

(3) MCERLEAN broke last out losing all chance; if he reverts back to his prior effort he'll be tough to beat. (7) WESTERN DAKOTA has class to him; if he can make his way into the race he'll be a threat. (1) THAT MAN OF MINE draws best and should hang around for a share.

Race 9

(8) WEDNESDAYS WHIM ships in for Burke off two straight wins at The Meadowlands and we all know Brennan won't be sitting last with him. (6) ODDS ON ALPHA was second best to a very logical winner last week. (4) WILD DREAM ships in off a good win at Monticello.

Race 10

(1) CASHENDASH HANOVER was the victim of poor cover last out on the big track. He can trip out from this spot. (3) MYSTICAL VALENTINE bumps up off an easy win and Sears sticks with him. (2) N J LAW is back in for a tag and he draws well.

Race 11

(4) LUCKY HOUSE took two straight at Philly and he looks like a good fit here. (1) UNTOUCHABLE ONE has missed more time than most of the rest in here but he draws best and has ability. (5) PANONGAHELA has done little wrong since arriving locally.

Race 12

(3) LEAVEUMLADY was big in defeat last week and she can build off that effort. (5) IT'S A MIRACLE didn't really fire while following the top choice last out; prior form is solid. (6) A SHAM OF AMBER faces better but could be a closing threat.
