Race 1

(1) READY TO WORK was a solid winner at this level upon arrival and he should be able to repeat from this spot. (8) BLACK HAT is racing below the level of the recent claim and he's got plenty of early speed. (3) NORTHERN IDEAL deserves another look off last week's break.

Race 2

(7) CELTIC MERCHANT returns locally and has plenty of speed and class to him. The outside post may not present a problem. (2) LINDY MCDREAMY tries the small track for trainer Mike Forte, who has had a couple of wins recently. (5) TROTTIN TROY has speed and never breaks, thus always must be considered.

Race 3

(6) SKY ARTIST gets Stratton in the bike tonight, worth a look. (1) INTOVIEW went evenly off live cover in her second lifetime start; eligible for improvement. (2) THE PERFECT DREAM gets some needed post relief tonight.

Race 4

(6) MARION MISS JULIE gets away from One More Kid tonight and the veteran trotting mare can get it done. (4) NF SOARING returns locally for the sizzling Brainard barn and on paper he looks like the one to beat. (2) GREEN PEACE drops to a more realistic level.

Race 5

(1) CURATOR dropped to the basement and responded with a game front-end score; repeats at odds-on. (4) MAJOR STONE could have the lead in two steps here; second best. (7) LOCKLOADNEXPLODE has the ability, but faces a tall order from this spot. He could rally for a share.

Race 6

(6) SUPER SOPH was a judges scratch last week, when she would have been the likely favorite; give her another chance. (2) CAM FUNNY is up in class off a solid trip-sitting score. (4) JUST ADD VODKA is erratic but does have some talent.

Race 7

(5) CHERRY BLISS faced tougher at Philly last out; mare might find these more to her liking. (1) R MARIE HANOVER held second gamely last week after being passed late. (2) LET HER ROCK is up in class off a ground-saving score.

Race 8

(2) DIGITAL Z TAM has missed a couple of weeks, but his form has been impossible to ignore. (3) MOVEOUTOFMYWAY goes for a new barn tonight while in good form. (6) JOHNNY Z has tailed off in his last few, but he can fit with this type.

Race 9

(3) SAND SUMMERFIELD finished with plenty of late pace once shaking free in his local return last week; ready to score. (1) IDEAL CARVER was done in by that early break in last; he gets another crack from the rail. (4) TIDEWATER TEDDY looks best of the rest.

Race 10

(2) GAVINS DESIGNER has been stuck outside for four consecutive starts since the claim by Dane, Jr.; give him a shot tonight from this inside post. (4) MICHAEL'S POWER returns at a reduced level for live connections; overbet? (1) ROCNROLWILNEVERDIE will be close up throughout from this spot.

Race 11

(2) JERRY'S BROWN GOLD lands inside, picks up Brennan and should be ready to roll. (3) RIVER RUN FOR RYAN was uncovered into a good rival last week and flattened; he needs a better trip. (1) THIRTY TWO RED has some ability and Stratton's back driving.

Race 12

(7) ELECTRIC SHOOTER had zero chance last week but he made up some late ground; he's got another tough post but maybe Brennan will try to generate some early speed from him. (8) AUSSIE REACTOR A is up in class off a tough beat and he may be forwardly placed as well. 7/8 excata box? (1) KEYSTONE RAPTOR gets needed class relief and draws best.
