Spot Play: LITTLE MICHAEL B (7th)

Race 1

(1) TRACK MASTER D was a decent second in his local return and the Remmen trainee just looks a touch better than these. (5) WAYWARD SON hasn't been racing all that badly of late and he drops in class tonight. (3) ROCKIN RAMBARAN double-drops in class off a rather dull effort.

Race 2

(4) MAGIC WILL WORK qualified nicely at The Big M upon shipping east from The Meadows; mare debuts locally for the streaking Harmon barn. (3) DO IT FOR ANNIE was a decent second to a classy rival last out in an added-distance event. (2) ROSE RUN NASH hails from the Banca barn, hard to ignore that angle.

Race 3

(3) ADRENALIN JUNKIE raced okay last week after recovering from a break before the start; he deserves another chance in this very weak field. (4) BRICKYARD CLASSIC has hit the board in six of his last seven for Baynes. (2) PERFECT TWENTY ONE also broke last week; prior race was a winning effort at Freehold.

Race 4

(6) REGIL MEG was a good second to a well-rated winner last week; Auciello trainee has the needed early speed and looks ready to score. (3) KEYSTONE CLASSY hasn't shown much in her last two at The Meadowlands but she had some decent efforts last Fall at Philly. (2) ANTY ENTITY raced okay here last season and she's reunited with Brennan.

Race 5

(1) WINWOOD SCOUT returns for Harmon off three consecutive front-end scores at Monticello. He's never been one of my favorites but he deserves top billing based on the rail draw and his current form. (6) PHOTO RULES has had his moments here in the past and he does have some early speed. (2) NOWERLAND FIREBIRD hails from Banca but she hasn't looked good in her last few.

Race 6

(1) ALBERTO CONTADOR N was overloaded with pace from an impossible spot versus better last week. He drops, draws all the way inside and looks like lock-city tonight. (6) FRITZIE PIC UP MAN was a pocket-sitting winner at this level last out. (3) BRETT MCFAVRELOUS was empty last out for Lachance but he was off a month; he's better than that.

Race 7

(5) LITTLE MICHAEL B enters a new barn via claim and has shown big speed on occasion; I think he's a must-try from this spot. (3) BOX CAR JOHNNIE had some decent pace last week after escaping traffic and he can show more tonight. (6) HYPNOTIST drops in class again but he's been pretty flat recently.

Race 8

(1) AGGRESSIVE arrives from Woodbine and finds a very soft spot; gets the call in a forgettable race. (5) MARTINI MASTER will be firing the gate which clearly makes her a player. (3) SHELIKESCANDY should be close enough to land a share.

Race 9

(2) MIGHTY YOUNG JOE launched a big wide move from behind stale excess cover last week and understandably flattened late after the tough trip; smoother journey takes this. (1) MY TEMUDJIN N was aggressively handled at a big price last out and now he draws all the way in. (4) EXTREME MACHINE N takes a needed drop in class but he has no current form; proceed with caution.

Race 10

(2) ART OF ILLUSION gave it an aggressive try last out and tired on the front end. Veteran appears overdue. (7) OUR DRAGON KING would clearly be the top choice if not for the poor post; can he get revved up early? (1) MARINER SEELSTER gets class and post relief in his local return.

Race 11

(1) REQUEST FOR PAROLE gets serious class relief in her second local appearance and Lachance should take full advantage of this prime spot. (7) VILLAGE JESSICA was shuffled back last week; mare has big early speed, (6) SHERKIN HANOVER drew away with ease last week after blowing by the quitting leader; she should be a player again.

Race 12

(3) DRUMFIRE A was in a spot to land a share two back when he broke and last week at The Meadowlands he had too far to come; oldtimer lands a better post tonight and he looks capable of upsetting with a favorable trip. (5) STATION THEEEOHSIX was uncovered into a rated pace last week versus better; threat here on the dropdown. (4) DIAMOND COWBOY may be more aggressively handled tonight.
