Race 2

(3) CONSUMER RATE qualified effectively and he could be best in this totally forgettable race. (2) TOO MUCH HANOVER ships in for Garcia-Herrera; must respect. (1) FAUST burned money last out at Philly.

Race 3

(5) CURATOR plunges to the basement tonight and we'll see if the gelding responds. (1) ANDY BARAN gets needed post relief and Bongiorno will likely get aggressive. (3) LOCKLOADNEXPLODE qualified back effectively after being roughed up the start prior.

Race 4

(2) BRICKYARD TOOTS has been waiting for a spot like this to flex her class. (4) MONTANA SKIES picks up Sears tonight and she's shown speed on the big track; she could fit nicely here. (3) B L CLASS ACT is another shipper who should stack up well here.

Race 5

(5) ONE MORE KID is the current king of the $12,500 claiming ranks; takes another. (6) MARION MISS JULIE lands outside of the top choice again which may make things difficult. (3) TAGMASTER ships in and the veteran has some back class to him; Sears drives.

Race 6

(1) HIGHLAND ROCKSTAR got class relief last out at Pocono and proved a solid winner; youngster can built off that confidence-boosting effort. (3) SKY ARTIST hinted at ability in that qualifier for Schnittker. (2) CALL JESSICA LE moves back inside and just missed from a similar spot two back.

Race 7

(5) SUPER SOPH was an impressive two-move winner in her seasonal debut and she should be able to repeat. (1) MARACULOUS and (4) WILD LADY LUCK both ship up from Dover and should be good fits here.

Race 8

(6) SEAFOOD ANNIE ran huge in defeat last week and the mare appears ready to break through tonight, despite another poor post. (4) R MARIE HANOVER returns from Pocono and the Team Miller charge could be forwardly placed. (3) UILLEANN returns for Garcia-Herrera but she's never been a prolific winner.

Race 9

(1) ROCK TO GLORY hasn't been at his best in his last few but that was against better; Godinez trainee can get well from this spot. (6) JERRY'S BROWN GOLD returns to Brennan and I would be shocked if he wasn't aggressively driven early. (7) HERE WE GO AGAIN drops again and was beaten last out by the classy Real Nice.

Race 10

(4) MORTAL ZIN showed a ton of late interest last out from a tough spot and he deserves top billing off that effort. (1) IDEAL CARVER lands back inside off three consecutive eight holes. (3) TIDEWATER TEDDY has some class to him and he should be able to land a share.

Race 11

(4) MISSISSIPPI HIPPY is back in for a tag off a solid winning effort and he can easily repeat for the hot DiDomenico barn. (5) FAMEOUS WESTERN closed a ton last week; figures here. (1) WHOLLY LOUY has some speed, some class and the best post.

Race 12

(8) LIFE UP FRONT tried to leave last week, took back to last and had solid finishing pace; maybe his fortunes can change with better racing luck. (3) WESTERN DAKOTA was third best last out to some tough dropdown rivals. (4) BITTERSWEET CHAMP was a big upset winner last out.
