Race 1

Race 2

(3) COACH FOX free-falls in class and the veteran really has no excuse to fail. (4) CANEEL HALL passed her first test of the season, but she faces more established, seasoned foes here. (2) MAGIC SPICE qualified effectively.

Race 3

(2) CHEYENNE MIRIAM has been solid over at The Meadowlands and it appears that she lays over these. (3) BEAT THE BEAT had some stakes experience as a freshman and she took care of business last out at Freehold. (7) TIMESWEETEDHONEY is back at Yonkers after gaining some confidence out of town.

Race 4

(2) PACIFIC DESPERADO hasn't been at his best recently but maybe the post relief can make the difference here. (7) CHICAGO HANOVER has been solid in  his last three; only knock here is the poor post. (1) SAILING CRUISE drops, draws best but has no current form.

Race 5

(3) CITY KID is well established at this level and he looks like a prime contender here. (1) TOUCHDOWN FRANCO is back inside and reunited with Brennan. (7) IMPRESSIVE EARL took care of business last week after setting a soft tempo.

Race 6

(7) STEUBEN RUTHLESS rallied for second behind a 1-20 shot last week; prior week she took all the money then broke; mare might provide some value from this spot. (3) AZOREAN NIGHT was clearly second best last week. (4) AINT GOT A HOME has hit the ticket in four of five.

Race 7

(4) DRIVE ALL NIGHT drops in class off two solid second-place outings and although he's got some tough ones inside of him he could be sharp enough to prevail. (1) ANNOUNCEMENT N is the controlling speed here. (2) BJ'S GUY changes hands again off last week's rugged try.

Race 8

(1) CRUISE QUEEN took control and jogged last week; Burke charge should be forwardly placed again and could prove stubborn if she's on the front end. (3) FAST AND FIESTY drew off with ease last out and she's done little wrong recently. (2) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY has a win and a second in the series; draws best here.

Race 9

(6) SHARKS LEGACY drops in class for his fourth start off the layoff. Brennan drives tonight and he might be more involved. (4) STONEBRIDGE ROCKET has some speed, could use it from this spot. (3) ROYAL MEETING also drops and draws better; contender.

Race 10

(6) FOUR STARZ TRACE stays at the same level after being claimed by a live outfit; could be a price in this competitive event. (3) ART FOR ARTS SAKE has raced well in his three starts for Temming. (1) ARSENAL draws best for Burke; obvious contender.

Race 11

(7) OIL MAGNET has finally made me forget his gapping, plodding along days. Ths is a new animal under Burke. Last week he held gamely after a tough grind. (1) GLASS PRINCE lands inside again looking to repeat. (3) WISHER was a game uncovered second last week.

Race 12

(2) ULTIMATE DESIRE gets needed class and post relief here, which makes him a solid contender. (7) NINE INNINGS also drops and it's possible he can fire from the gate. (1) MAYTIME TERROR returns locally for Garcia-Herrera and draws best; nobody would be shocked if he won.
