MEET STATS: 77 - 240 / $428.10   BEST BETS: 13 - 19 / $51.00


Best Bet: ROAD BET (4th)


Race 1

(3) CAROBBEAN PACETRY flopped again at The Meadowlands. Youngster's last four efforts over the half-mile have been solid. (2) EXPOSE was second best last week upon arrival at odds-on. (8) MYPLACEONTHEBEACH hails from good connections but hasn't done much in her brief career.

Race 2

(6) EXXA LOU broke before the start last week losing all chance; mare flashed good speed in all prior efforts and she can be forwardly placed here if she minds her manners. (1) DEAD WRONG may be the favorite tonight but she's not very reliable. (5) KISS ME I'M LOADED broke upon arrival, gets Sears tonight but will probably be cautiously handled.

Race 3

(5) A SHAM OF AMBER rolled into a speed break trying to leave from the eight hole last week; three prior efforts were super. (3) MACHAROUNDTHECLOCK closed well but too late last out; Sears' choice is an obvious threat. (1) MY SHIYEN gets needed post relief and the Allard trainee will be more involved tonight.

Race 4

(1) ROAD BET has done little wrong in her three 2014 starts, and last week's defeat may have been her best effort yet; solid play from the rail. (5) IT'S A MIRACLE battled gamely before tiring last out. (2) KJ'S FOXY LADY just missed after saving ground last week but she faces tougher foes tonight.

Race 5

(1) ROCKY REGAL drops below the level of the claim from three back and he may just be faster than these. (2) BAGS OF MONEY hasn't done much lately but this looks like a better spot. (3) DVC GIVEMEATTITUDE has raced well in his last four, but he probably should have won last out.

Race 6

(6) AMERICAN SHUTTLE went a huge trip in her debut for the Garcia-Herrera barn and she must be followed up tonight. (8) DOO WEE RUSTY has been first or second in seven of her last eight but she must navigate the outside post. I loved (1) CLORIS HANOVER last week and she won, but not all that impressively.

Race 7

(4) LAWGIVER HANOVER gets needed post relief and Sears in the bike; lots to like here. (2) MISSISSIPPI HIPPY debuts for DiDomenico off the claim and he may fit well with these. (3) HANDSOME PRINCE finished well for second last week at 78-1. When do you ever see that price on a Burke horse with Brennan driving?

Race 8

(3) ETHAN HANOVER was a solid two-move winner last week, which was a total form reversal. He stays at the same level and I would expect a repeat effort. (2) ART FOR ARTS SAKE gets class and post relief in his second seasonal start. (1) TIDEWATER TEDDY returns locally from a decent stint at The Meadowlands and the veteran draws best.

Race 9

(3) REPORT FOR DUTY N was outgamed late by two rivals in here that appear to be in tougher spots; give the tactical advantage to this classy 12-year-old. (2) ABOMINABLE SNOWPAN had some late pace in traffic last week and he can be a late threat again. (4) ROADWAY gets some post relief and he appears to fit with these.

Race 10

(5) WESTERN DAKOTA grinded harmlessly uncovered into a paceless race but held well for third last out with Vallee in the bike; Stratton drives tonight and they can reach with a live trip. (1) TRIPLE MAJOR held okay late after a long trip versus cheaper last out; Sears sticks with him. (3) SOUTHWIND TABOR is still a decent earner after all these years.

Race 11

(2) POWER OF TARA N dropped down last week and had enough late kick to get the job done; he can repeat here in a field with no standouts. (1) PACIFIC DESPERADO lands inside and returns to Brennan. (4) BIG JER has flashed speed in his last two.

Race 12

(8) MAINLAND KEY N is clearly best here but he needs a real aggressive drive and a bit of luck tonight from post eight. (6) CHEYENNE JEFFREY has some early speed which may make him a player. (1) IDYLWOOD PHOENIX returns from Ohio, where he seems to have found his stride.
