Best Bet: DONTTELLRUSS (7th)


Race 1

(5) MAYFLOWERMOONSHINE was going nowhere in a hurry last out trying to close into a fast back half. This is a more realistic spot tonight. (4) TROON showed some signs of life last week. (1) LOLAS CRUISER looks like he's found a home at this basement claiming level.

Race 2

(5) JACKIE GOLDSTEIN finished with plenty after getting shuffled in an added-distance event. Trotter is short on class but long on form. (2) BAMBINO HALL should be the favorite and may well be the one to beat. (3) WESTERN CREDIT in his two starts since the claim.

Race 3

(1) STKY FNGRS HANOVER showed in that qualifier that she may be ready for action and having the rail here makes her a big threat. (2) LADY SPARTACUS finished willingly in a morning trial at The Meadowlands and she makes her career debut for good connections. (5) BULLVILLE POWERPUFF was third best last week, could hit the ticket again.

Race 4

(3) LITTLE MICHAEL B gave it a good shot before wilting last week; I'm giving him one more chance to produce before I give up. (5) ER ROOM was second best with these last out; logical. (1) LIGHTNING STRIKE has speed, draws best and was a winner here two back.

Race 5

(2) ELECTROFIRE disappointed in his local return, but he was chasing a strong winner; chance to rebound here from this spot. (1) K SLATER has some class to him and gets major post relief; honestly, I have no idea how he ended up 20/1 on the morning line. (8) PAPPY'S PAL will be firing from the gate.

Race 6

(4) WITCH DALI hit town and did what she needed to do last week; repeats. (1) LIFE IS A BEACH ships in for Burke, draws best and could make things interesting for the top choice. (2) CRUISINWITHMYBABY raced very well last week to be second best.

Race 7

(5) DONTTELLRUSS is a late arrival to the Petticoat party but she looks much the best here. (1) ALWAYS SUNDAY figures to get a trip from this spot; Tetrick drives. (2) MY CAROLINE can be a little better off last week's needed start.

Race 8

(6) SENTIMENTAL LADY has been racing with better recently and she'll be trouble with an alert getaway. (4) IMPATIENCE was second best to a runaway winner last week. (1) WIKEDWITCHOTHEWEST arrives from The Meadowlands and she can be more competitive here.

Race 9

(3) UNCLE GOODFELLOW wasn't aggressively handled last week but he did have finishing pace; another chance. (1) P H POWERPLAY gets needed post relief and should be primed for a better effort. (6) ADDWATER has flashed good speed in his last two but he's faltered late.

Race 10

(4) A LA NOTTE HANOVER was pretty game to hold for a board spot after grinding on the rim last out; mare is cycling in the right direction and is overdue. (5) CARLOTA BLUE CHIP qualified effectively for Burke. (1) FRAME WORTHY moves back inside and will be close up throughout.

Race 11

(6) HICKORY ICON looked super winning last out and he can repeat but he does face a tough foe in (1) TRACK MASTER D. The latter was game in defeat after doing a lot of the work last week. Good matchup. (3) BULLVILLE KYLE has been pretty good in all of his recent efforts.
