Race 2

(5) BELIEVABLE returns at a reduced level and seems capable of awakening. (4) GRECALE AS broke in his debut for new connections; give this veteran import another look. (7) NOWERLAND FIREBIRD is back locally at the level where she took two of three.

Race 3

(3) ZINDERELLA had good pace in her last local appearance then followed that up with a win at Philly. Last out she didn't fire at The Meadowlands but it was off a sick scratch; give her a long look here. (1) WINDSUN KENDA looks like the one to beat off last week's solid effort. (4) BLUERIDGE JEZEBEL is 6/5 morning line off her blowout win last week, but that was a very weak field.

Race 4

(4) MY AMERICAN TALLIA is a half-sister to the nice-looking filly My Tallia Ideal; she showed nice improvement in that second baby race. (1) INSTANT RESPECT draws best and will be ready to go for Takter. (2) GAME OF DREAMERS rallied well in the slop at Pocono.

Race 5

(6) VITAMEATAVEGAMIN cruised home in a nice back half over at Gaitway and she looks ready to roll here. (3) SCANDALICOUS posted a quick final clocking in her prep and loomed large. (4) SKY ARTIST hails from Schnittker, who always has them ready.

Race 6

(3) BETTOR BUSINESS is another good-looking firster from DiDomenico; Tetrick was a going-away winner with her in a morning prep. (2) ALI BLUE currently looks faster than these and she draws inside for Takter. (1) VALENTINA DE VIE showed remarkable improvement in her second qualifier.

Race 7

(2) MIND OVER MATTER ships down from her home base in Canada and she looks sharp off those two qualifiers. (3) SWEET CHARITY kicked home strongly over at The Meadowlands. (1) GENTLEMENS DELIGHT went evenly for Takter, draws best for her debut.

Race 8

(2) H AND M'S HIT was a game winner right off the bench and he should only be better off that effort. (5) BOB N TONY also went well off the long layoff; big threat. (3) AUTUMN TREASURE broke early last week while close up; give her another look.

Race 9

(1) SHELIKESITHERWAY gets some post relief and she hasn't been all that bad in recent efforts. (4) PERSUASIVE HANOVER will be firing from the gate. (6) FRITZIE CHIC bumps up off a win in her local debut.

Race 10

(3) SHEER DESIRE was reclaimed by Robertson, and he was a well-meant winner when last in this barn. (1) CHANG DYNASTY draws best and should be on the lead or in the pocket. (8) HEMER'S CARD SHARK put forth a game effort last week and he can spice up the exotics from this spot.

Race 11

(1) ELECTROFIRE drops back into claimers and should awaken. (3) MILITARY STRATCOM never had a chance last week; veteran will be much more involved from this spot. (6) ITS A GOOD THING was a dead-game uncovered winner last week; he can be considered, even with the move outside.

Race 12

(2) MACHAL JACKSON drops and draws better in his second local appearance; gelding is probably better than these. (1) IDEAL IKE was third best in a fast mile at Pocono. (4) A PLACE IN HISTORY went down the road at Saratoga and he picks up Sears tonight.
