Race 1

(6) GREYSTONE CASH appeared to have some pace but was jammed in until too late; veteran is a threat with smooth sailing. (2) BLUE FIN returns to Goodell in the bike, has speed and has drawn well. (1) GIACOMETTI is always a player with an inside post.

Race 2

(2) NOWERLAND FIREBIRD hasn't done much recently but right now it's impossible to ignore these connections. (6) FORCE NINE is defintiely classiest and he wasn't all that bad last week. (1) SWIFT KID has been a good earner of late for Corelli.

Race 3

(6) MY MARISA CLAIR isn't much, but neither is anybody else; Rohr/Bartlett trainer/driver combo has been good. (8) ROCKNROLL MEG arrives from The Meadows, joins the Erv Miller barn and has been flashing decent speed. (3) THE PERFECT DREAM should be able to land a share from this spot.

Race 4

(2) ANEGADA went a big effort in defeat upon arrival and the Croghan trainee looks primed from this spot. (3) BETTOR BUSINESS had a big freshman campaign and she needed those two starts over at The Meadowlands. (1) ALWAYS A ROMANCE ships from Chicago looking for three in a row.

Race 5

(2) CARNEGIE drops to the basement tonight and really should have no excuse to fail. (1) PLAYA TULUM draws best and will likely be on the lead or in the two-hole. (5) ALL MUNKY BUSINESS ships from the big track where she was likely facing tougher.

Race 6

(6) TWIN B SPEEDO makes her 2014 local debut off two solid efforts at The Meadowlands; gelding simply looks faster than these. (3) WELL DID has underwhelmed since arriving but I believe he's got some talent. (8) WEST MATTERS fits here but has to overcome the eight hole; Bartlett's choice.

Race 7

(4) MR DE LUCA got going too late last week; he can pounce late if close enough to the action. (7) ROCKSTAR STRIDE appears to have the speed to compete but he really hasn't put it all together yet. (1) HAY WELL DONE has raced well in his last two at Freehold.

Race 8

(7) JUST ADD VODKA blasted out impressively last week with Brennan driving and he stayed on well for second to the big favorite; a repeat of that effort can get him home tonight. (1) BETTOR CHILL OUT moves all the way in for her third return start and she should be better tonight. (3) WONDERING HEART made her seasonal debut a winning one versus much lesser.

Race 9

(7) EXIT CAM brushed and crushed two back and there's no reason to think he can't do it again. (2) LONG TERM has been kind of hit-or-miss since arriving. (1) USEFUL HANOVER gets major post relief.

Race 10

(5) RIGHT ON MOLLY didn't look that bad upon her return and she can kick home nicely off a live trip. (6) SUPER SOPH steps up off an easy win. (4) LET HER ROCK returns to Dube in the bike tonight and they had success two and three back.

Race 11

(1) ROCKSTAR TEMPER drops back down in class off a throwout line and he was game in defeat two back. (2) COLONIAL ROAD steps up off a game pocket-sitting win. (6) ELECTRIC SHOOTER has plenty of back class and he appears way overdue.

Race 12

(1) PACIFIC DESPERADO returns to Brennan in the bike tonight and down at the bottom of the program they teamed up for a wire-to-wire score. (4) BIG JER returns from a brief stint at Northfield and he's been racing well. (5) WINTER BLUES was a well-meant winner two back; threat.
