Race 2

(4) SIMONE HALL cut the pace and was second best to a sharp rival; her turn tonight. (1) RAPID STRATEGY has back class, maybe. (3) NOWERLAND FIREBIRD is the queen of this class but she's missed time.

Race 3

(3) OUTA MY HEAD held very well off a brutal trip last out; prior race he won easily. (1) ROCK ME PLEASE just missed last week and is extremely logical from this spot. (5) EYES ONLY FOR YOU ships up from Dover and Goodell drives for the Ted Wing stable.

Race 4

(2) JUST ADD VODKA hasn't raced since last fall but it looks like she's ready to go off those two qualifiers. (3) STONEBRIDGE CLASSY ships from Canada and joins the Burke barn; instant respect. (7) CUT A DEAL has been picking up checks at The Meadowlands and she'll be forwardly placed.

Race 5

(1) ODDS ON ALPHA gets Kakaley in the bike tonight and she looks tough to deny from this spot. (2) HAPPY APPLES is always better from an inside post. (7) ENVIOUS HANOVER has the speed to overcome the outside post.

Race 6

(7) MY SHIYEN needs help from this spot but her seasonal debut was encouraging. (6) WEDNESDAYS WHIM broke leaving last week; another chance. (4) DOUKNOWWHEREURGOIN looms large here off that effort at The Meadowlands but she broke in her lone local appearance.

Race 7

(3) LATE NIGHT JOKE was second best after a long, sustained rally last out; worth following. (2) RED ROCK is perfect since arriving for Allard and he looks for more. (1) MACHTOTHEMOON will be close up from this spot.

Race 8

(6) FRESH N FAST sat in, got buried and kicked home too late last week; threat with more aggressive handling. (3) VERY UPSET RICHIE drops and is capable of better. (1) ATLAS ALLIANCE N is an interesting shipper for Smith.

Race 9

The only way (2) MAINLAND KEY N doesn't win this race is because they cancelled the card. (3) MAJOR TIPPER should be close up for Burke/Brennan. (1) TWIN B HOLLISTER returns at a reduced level and draws best.

Race 10

(3) MISSISSIPPI HIPPY dropped in for a tag last week and raced evenly while third over; gelding can be better tonight from this spot. (2) LUCKY MAN was bottomed from the pocket in last; he drops in class and can awaken. (7) SO TAKE THAT is steady stock from Burke but the outside post is going to be a problem.

Race 11

(3) JEPSON HANOVER was very game on the rim in his debut for DiDomenico and he can reach tonight from this spot. (6) REPORT FOR DUTY N was never in doubt last week. (1) MYSTICAL VALENTINE has speed and the rail looking for four straight.

Race 12

(4) ANTIGUA HANOVER finished with pace from impossible spots in her two 2014 efforts. Forget the 12/1 morning line, she will take plenty of action. (2) HILARIOUS HAYLEY looks like a real up-and-comer for Lachance. (7) A SHAM OF AMBER was super in victory last out.
