Race 2

(2) K SLATER fits well with these, has a cozy post to work with. Can be the boss for his first score of the year. RED BUGLER Gelding could get involved with a golden trip. (1) KNOCKING AROUND should fare well from the fence.

Race 3

(4) WHATA BIZNESS Maywood invader is quite sharp. Sophomore can take this at first asking at the Hilltop. (1) JK ALLNITELONG retains the rail slot and put in a mild bid last out for the show spot. (7) SIMON SAID could land a share of the purse.

Race 4

(1) U BELONG TO ME gets the luck of the draw. Gelding has some speed and has every right to move forward off his latest. (5) BIG BAD BOSSMAN Upstate shipper has put in two sharp efforts; main danger. (3) FALCON JUSTICE was sent down the road last out at Saratoga for all the glory.

Race 5

(2) BIG GAME HUNTER's last trip was good against better. Should be tough in here. (1) MISSISSIPPI HIPPY gets the rail slot and that could help his chances. (3) BOBJACKS ANGLE A just missed the victory last time out at Freehold.

Race 6

(3) GREYSTONE CASH Gelding has been good in his last three starts. Pacer can boss these at his best. (2) DANISHDUJOUR Easy score against lesser in his recent try; dangerous again. (8) MYSTICAL VALENTINE Despite the move to the 8-hole, this one can't be counted with sharp connections.

Race 7

(5) CAPELA Sharp performance in her last trip to the post. Sophomore miss is very capable of moving forward against these. (3) MADDIE DOOWOP will need a better trip than in her recent outing; maybe. (2) HEAVEN ON EARTH is knocking at the door; watch out.

Race 8

(5) AMERITIME rallied strongly to nail down the show spot in her last start. Filly seems to be ready to blow the doors off this group. (4) BULLVILLEPOWERPUFF was second best in her last one; capable. (3) SAWYER Pennsylvania invader put in two good efforts; not out of this.

Race 9

(1) HAY STACKED She is knocking at the door based on her last two starts. Pacing mare moves back to the fecne where she was a sharp second two trips ago; the pick. (2) BETTOR N BETTER makes her 2015 debut off a good qualifier at Philly; main danger. (4) GIGI DEO came close to grabbing the victory last time out; beware.

Race 10

Will give (8) OPEN WATER a shot of returning to his winning ways. Gelding took the pocket route home to victory two tries back. (2) THAT MAN OF MINE gets post relief and maybe the 2-hole will put him in the mix. (1) CAN HE GO retains the rail slot. Could have a say in the outcome.

Race 11

(4) ROCKIN ROBERT Gelding did show speed in his latest. He can get back into the swing of things tonight. (5) GRANTOR HANOVER will need a better trip to contend with these; maybe (3) STEVENSVILLE got the job done last out down the road against lesser company.

Race 12

(1) BACK TO THE WEST He is seeking his first victory of the year. Moves to the fence and that should help his cause; ready for action. (5) COWBOY TERRIER was nailed for win honors in his last trip. (6) BLACKTREE is always there so watch out.
