Race 1

(2) WAYWARD SON can be excused for his last effort, where he got hung to dry; chance to rebound from this inside post. (5) DUTCH RICHMAN fits nicely at this level and should be a threat. (6) DRIVE ALL NIGHT comes out of the same race as the top two choices and this one tripped out to score in that event.

Race 2

(5) SENTRY has been facing much tougher, should find these to his liking. (4) FLASHBACK gets some needed post relief and he appears capable of showing more. (1) KAPTAIN MAC DADDY has some ability somewhere; time to stay flat and show it.

Race 3

(1) FOX VALLEY LENA flashed speed in her initial trip here; she draws best and Brennan drives again. (3) CICELY HANOVER beat these last out but was dq'ed; obvious threat. (5) STONE OF MAGIC was rallying some when she broke; maybe she can be a closing threat.

Race 4

(2) BIG Z CLASS only needs to mind his manners to score easily here. (4) S F CIRO never wins but he does have plenty of early speed which puts him into play. (6) HARDROCKENJESSICA has done well over this track in the past.

Race 5

(5) HOBSONS CHOICE has speed but is very erratic; proceed with extreme caution. (4) ALLSTAR SURVIVOR looked ok in that qualifier upon arrival from Chicago; gelding can fit well here. (1) BAY ROCK hasn't really shown much but he does draw best and Sears drives.

Race 6

(1) A AND G'S DESIGN is sometimes her own worst enemy but if she gets away alertly she can trip out from this spot. (4) DOUKNOWHEREURGOIN arrives from Canada and joins the Fraley barn; obvious contender from these connections. (5) HAPPY APPLES has speed but lacks late stamina.

Race 7

(1) MISTRESSTOTHESTARS gets another crack at an inside post and Brennan drives; maybe. (3) ODDS ON ALPHA has done little wrong since arriving locally. (6) FREETIME has certainly been live in her last two with Sears driving.

Race 8

(2) COSMICPEDIA shook free with late pace last out; veteran is always capable with a live trip. (5) ORR HANOVER has back class and qualified effectively. (4) DRAGON RIDGE has plenty of speed at his disposal and Stratton should be forwardly placed with him.

Race 9

(5) MYSTICAL VALENTINE has been sharp since the Brainard claim; he loses Sears tonight but that may help his price. (4) THAT MAN OF MINE is trip-dependent but he did win at this level last out. (2) JEPSON HANOVER is good, but may need a start or two.

Race 10

(3) HOT RODDY ships north and joins a new barn; gelding has been showing live moves at Dover. (4) FOX VALLEY ACTION was a game winner versus these last out. (1) DRAGON FEVER tripped out to upset in last; he could work out another live trip from this spot.

Race 11

(6) QUINNMAN returned from a long layoff and came back razor-sharp for Burke; worth following. (4) UNTOUCHABLE ONE was Sears' choice and he merits respect. (3) ACHILLES BLUE CHIP is clearly a good fit at this level for Beckwith.

Race 12

(3) CAVIART KEY takes a needed drop in class tonight and is worth a play here. (4) WHITE MOUNTAIN TOP is racing better since returning locally for team Buter. (2) SIR ZIGGY'S Z TAM drops and gets post relief for Lachance; your call.
