(4) ISLAND LEXUS has done nothing since the claim but he does drop in class and goes second time for a new trainer. (3) JOLLY JUBITER ships in for connections that are tough to ignore. (5) HARNESSNITEINCANADA steps up looking for two in a row.

Race 2

(3) BROADWAYS FORTUNE understandably tired last week after being used multiple times in her debut for Garcia-Herrera; she deserves another chance. (1) ORANGE BIGI has speed, class and the best draw. (7) HOWE'S MAGIC hasn't done much this year but he picks up Sears in his return.

Race 3

(3) BETTOR BUSINESS backed up last out in NYSS action; her Lismore elimination effort last month was solid. (5) FLYING NUN ships from Philly where she was arguably facing tougher. (2) GORDJUS adds Lasix tonight, could improve.

Race 4

(3) CARD SHOCK jogged last week in his local debut. He faces a tough foe tonight in (5) BEST SAID but he may be the better price. The latter has had moderate success versus some really good foes in Pennsylvania. (2) WELL TO DO looks clearly best of the rest.

Race 5

(3) MAIN STAGE has been picking up checks versus similar foes up at Saratoga and the veteran faces nothing special here. (6) BLIZZARD WARNING also ships south and she's got some early speed. (2) HOBOKEN SUNNY may be best when all is said and done but he's impossible to endorse based on his current form.

Race 6

(3) IDEAL MAGIC qualified nicely last month but fell flat in NYSS action; this is clearly an easier spot. (2) WEST MATTERS was a solid winner when last seen here. (4) UF BETTORS HANOVER rejoins the Brainard barn and could land a share.

Race 7

(5) DELCO ROCKNROLL drops in class, gets post relief and should be forwardly placed with Brennan driving. (2) ROADWAY land back inside and was a winner three back with Sears in the bike. This one has plenty of back class. (1) TIDEWATER TEDDY toured the track from the eight hole last week and now he moves all the way in.

Race 8

(4) DALLENBACH HANOVER gets Sears back in the sulky and with an improved post he may be firing out. (2) HILLBILLY HANOVER cannot be ignored from the Burke/Brennan team but this gelding is still winless on the year. (3) TRACK MASTER D finished willingly last out though too late.

Race 9

(4) KEEMOSABE is erratic sometimes but he's got loads of speed; worth a try in this wide-open affair. (1) ART OF TEMPATION can be a threat if he holds early position. (6) BITTERSWEET CHAMP has raced well in all of his local starts.

Race 10

(4) ALITTLEAINTENOUGH raced very well in defeat last out getting run over by a sharp rival; four-year-old looks ready to score. (2) LAWGIVER HANOVER gets post relief off last week's decent effort. (1) ELECTROFIRE returns locally and he's had a good history here.

Race 11

(5) FASTER FASTER is still winless in 2014 yet she looks like the one to beat here; tread lightly. (1) BREATHTAKING lands the rail and that alone makes her a contender. (4) LIFE OF SMILEY got going too late last week.

Race 12

(4) K SLATER dropped and popped in a C-2 race at the Meadowlands and Bartlett was in the bike for that race. Veteran returns locally and can easily make it two straight. (1) REAL FLIGHT returns locally off a couple of solid efforts out of town. (3) HELLO HOT SHOT has emerged as a solid money-earner for his connections and he should be an okay fit in here.
