Race 1

(5) NO REAL SURPRISE has enough early speed to fire to the front and control the action in this competitive event. (7) BAY FISHIN DOC is another with early foot but this gelding seems camera shy. (4) GIACOMETTI can rally from off the pace and pick up the pieces.

Race 2

(3) IPO BLUE CHIP has some hidden ability for Team Buter. The mare seems overdue and she should be close enough to strike from this spot. (2) WHATA HUSTLER lands back inside and has good speed. (1) FLIRTING DUEZY has held her own up at Monticello and she gets a driver upgrade to Kalaley.

Race 3

(2) DRIVE ALL NIGHT debuts for Allard via claim and Sears picked him over (1) FAMEOUS WESTERN, who he won with last week from the eight hole. The latter moves all the way inside off a win and looms a big threat. (7) SUCROSE HANOVER raced very well in defeat last out and he's been sharp but this is a tough spot tonight.

Race 4

(4) CAROBBEAN PACETRY went a big two-move eight hole effort at 41-1 last week. Filly may be the one to beat from this spot. (1) THE PERFECT DREAM fended off the top choice in last but was gunned down by another rival; I can't fault anyone for looking her way. (3) ART'S B has shown improvement in her last two; Sears drives tonight.

Race 5

(3) JS MISS LINDA had plenty of finishing trot to be second best to a lock-city winner last out; it's her turn to shine tonight. (2) CABO lands a good post in her local return and was Sears' choice. (1) HARDROCKENJESSICA failed to fire last out but she's been competitive here in the past.

Race 6

(5) RED ROCK was dead-game to the wire and somehow prevailed in his local debut; Allard trainee may be even better tonight. (2) BAGS OF MONEY gets a shot from an inside post tonight and he can show more. (6) LATE NIGHT JOKE is erratic but he can motor home if he gets a live trip.

Race 7

(7) DOO WEE RUSTY has been too sharp to ignore, even with Sears opting off. (2) ROAD BET made plenty of money on the NYSS circuit, but she may need a start or two off the layoff. (3) BETS DRAGGIN FLY is more than capable of picking up a share from this spot.

Race 8

(4) HOBE SHOUND ships back locally off a solid score at The Meadowlands; she's been super since the barn change to Harris. (5) ODDS ON ALPHA was much the best last out; mare may be much the second-best here. (1) FREETIME has done little wrong of late and she draws best tonight.

Race 9

(2) HYPNOTIST grinded into second last week and the classy veteran is heading in the right direction. (1) ISLAND JET folded badly after trying to cut the pace last out; he's better than that. (3) CHEYENNE JEFFREY drops in class and has some speed.

Race 10

(2) ABOMINABLE SNOWPAN raced willingly from an impossible spot last week in a needed start; Godinez trainee should be ready to roll tonight. (3) SO TAKE THAT had missed time prior to last week's start; he's another that can be better tonight. (4) BROOKSTONE is impossible to ignore from the tough Sears/Allard tandem.

Race 11

(1) LUCKY MAN has shown flashes of his former self recently and he draws best while dropping in for a tag. (5) UNTOUCHABLE ONE left hard and broke last week; he can be forwardly placed again. (3) MYSTICAL VALENTINE is up in class for new connections and he faces some tough ones tonight.

Race 12

(3) FRESH N FAST gets serious post relief and he picks up Sears; gelding is capable of showing more. (2) ROCK THE WIND ships in for Burke and looks well spotted here. (1) SIR ZIGGY'S Z TAM dropped to this level and was second best; threat again from this inside post.
