Spot Play: SHERKIN HANOVER (10th)

Race 1

(4) LADY SPARTACUS looked very professional in her career debut, drawing off from a pocket trip with ease. Management barred show wagering this week, so apparently they think she's the real deal. (3) STKY FNGRS HANOVER cut a decent pace and was second best to the top choice; she can build off that tightener. (2) SEAFOOD MISSY is perfect in two lifetime starts, both at Freehold.

Race 2

(3) TIME WILL TELL ALL has been pretty decent in all of his recent efforts and Kakaley should have him forwardly placed off the gate. (1) ORANGE BIGI held well for second after being overtaken last week in an added-distance event. (5) FURTUNISTA is better than she's been showing.

Race 3

(2) TALKTOMECOURAGE N drops back to the winning level, draws back inside and will resume winning ways. (1) TRIP HANOVER was good three back, awful two back and okay last week. Clearly he's inconsistent, but he must be respected from the rail. (6) V I P BAYAMA drops again for Lachance after having shown little since arriving from Canada.

Race 4

(4) ALL FIRED UP has been awful in his last two but he drops in class tonight and clearly the Vallee trainee is capable of better. (1) BELIEVEINTHESPIRIT closed willingly last out from an impossible spot and now he moves all the way inside. (6) PIERCE has been solid in his last three local outings and he'll probably be overlooked in the wagering.

Race 5

(3) WITCH DALI won effortlessly last week; the Alagna trainee is clearly the most accomplished in here and she gets the call to repeat at a short price. (2) DONTTELLRUSS was well handled by Brennan in her local debut and she could put a scare into the top choice. (1) ALWAYS SUNDAY has made money in the two legs of this series and she will look to complete the chalky trifecta.

Race 6

(2) HAY STACKED toured the track with little chance last week but her prior effort was a sharp closing victory when she was close up enough; gets the call based on the favorable post. (6) CRUISINWITHMYBABY has the talent and the hot Buter driving but she's got to overcome the outside. (1) ROYAL MAMA broke last week while in contention for a share; she's got speed and draws best.

Race 7

(4) WINWOOD SCOUT goes for another new barn while in career form and he can win another. (1) I'M FABULOUS shows a win versus similar two back and she draws best. (3) SCHLIM SCHLAMMA rallied to be second best last out at a big price.

Race 8

(2) LAWGIVER HANOVER had some pace last out before getting dq'ed, now he returns to Brennan and has a big shot from this spot. (4) OFF LIKA PROMDRESS returns locally at a reduced level and he picks up leading driver Dube. (1) BROOKSTONE has been much better in his last two but he could be vulnerable tonight; don't accept a short price.

Race 9

(2) PANPIERO FIRPO closed with some willing pace in a needed start upon arrival and he can build off that effort despite the driver opting off. (5) SPINARAMA just missed when here locally three back. (1) HI HO STEVERINO isn't a prolific winner but he appears to be in a good spot tonight.

Race 10

(1) SHERKIN HANOVER had some very willing pace last week and now she draws best; if Bartlett can work out a live pocket trip she may have enough late to upset. (3) SAFE FROM TERROR looks for five straight for the Burke barn; she must be an overwhelming lock because there's no show wagering on this race. (4) CAROBBEAN PACETRY held very well after a long uncovered trip last week.

Race 11

(3) CAMBRIDGE was second best to the sharp Detroit Rapper last out at The Meadowlands and he was an easy winner when last seen here. (1) DOT DOT DOT DASH had some sneaky late trot in her added-distance race last out; big chance from this spot. (8) GENIUS AT WORK makes his four-year-old debut now in the Julie Miller barn and he may be one to keep an eye on.

Race 12

(1) HERE WE GO AGAIN drops in class, gets major post relief and seems like very logical selecting in the finale. (4) LIFE UP FRONT is better than he's showing and looks like a must-include in here. (3) HARD TO MACH was a very good second last out.
