MEET STATS: 204 - 637 / $1141.10 BEST BETS: 28 - 51 / $97.30

Best Bet: TIME ON MY HANDS (7th)

Spot Play: LYRA (5th)

Race 1

(6) DAUT FULL qualified effectively after misbehaving in a couple of starts; these days, having Scott Zeron in the bike is a good angle. (7) HEAVENLY BRIDE makes her initial start in the Cassar barn and she has NYSS experience; one to beat. (5) ABIDA HANOVER ships from Michigan and joins the Buter barn; that angle was victorious the other night.

Race 2

(3) AMAZON IDEAL broke early last out at 1/9 and never recovered; prior effort was sharp and the youngster only needs to mind her manners. (1) ROLLING GOING GONE was an upset winner with a close-up trip and now she gets Sears in the bike. (2) PRINCESS DELFINA was a very good second in her second career start; Bartlett drives.

Race 3

(2) RAGE N RYAN was hard-used last out and still lived to tell about it late; sharp gelding should repeat. (5) WHOGOESFIRST is just not the same horse as he used to be but he should definitely be competitive here. (8) BLADE SEESLTER may be hinting at a form reversal and I wouldn't totally dismiss him here with his early speed.

Race 4

(4) NAUTICA BLUE CHIP was Bartlett's choice here off a tough loss last out up at Saratoga, which was an improved effort; maybe. (1) MARLA MCGIVERS gets Sears in the bike after racing evenly against better and she draws best here. (5) FLOWER BOMB broke in her career debut and trainer Smedshammer takes the lines tonight; morning efforts were halfway decent.

Race 5

(2) LYRA gets a notable driver change to Kakaley and that could be enough to get her over the top in this tough-to-figure event. (6) PAT'S PARADISE ships in from Chicago and appears to have some ability. (3) THE PLAYER HANOVER hails from the sharp Chris Ryder barn.

Race 6

(3) STARNIGHT DANCER ships from Philly, picks up Kakaley and appears fast enough to topple these. (1) HEAVEN ON EARTH gets needed post relief, has a good history here and gets Tetrick in the bike; overbet? (2) AMERITIME has shown some improvement recently out of town.

Race 7

(1) TIME ON MY HANDS looked very impressive winning on the front end at Saratoga in 1:54 2/5; from this spot the Ryder trainee will be heavily favored to repeat. (4) VINO AND FORMAGGIO was a good second in both her career efforts and she looks second best here. (3) LILMISSTALKSALOT was scratched sick in her career debut which is never a good sign but her qualifer at Philly previously was good.

Race 8

(4) HYPNOTIST is trip-dependent but the seasoned veteran is very tough to pass up at this reduced level. (1) LET'S FOAL AROUND exits series action at Tioga where the Chiodo trainee performed admirably; he draws best and picks up Sears. (2) SAM'S ESCAPE is clearly better than what he's been showing recently.

Race 9

(5) WISHY WASHY GIRL has flashed good speed at both ends of her miles in all her career efforts; Schnittker's filly should be firing out and sitting a winning trip. (3) NO CLOUDS BLUECHIP was used in the early stages last out and held decently for a board spot; Sears picks up the drive tonight. (2) PENPAL gets post relief in her second career effort for Lachance; we may need to see another start or two from her.

Race 10

(3) MCRUSTY gets post relief in a questionable field and I'll give him a chance despite Buter opting off; Zeron drives. (1) DONAU hasn't done much recently but he has speed, the rail and Tetrick driving. (4) BACKUP A gets class and post relief for the Bamond barn but he hasn't really impressed me since arriving from Australia.

Race 11

(4) GLASS PRINCE can sometimes look sluggish but sometimes look like a champion; he does fit well here and the price should be right. (2) DUKE DID IT exits claimers off a series of good efforts. (6) SNAP TO IT A is another Bamond import who seems fast enough to compete.

Race 12

(7) BIG TURN ON may be a bit of a reach here but he was a game winner down at Philly in his debut for the Burke barn and the four-year-old may have more to offer. (3) OFF LIKA PROMDRESS returns to Yonkers off a couple of confidence-building wins at Saratoga. (5) MARINER SEELSTER was a pretty good second last out and could hit the ticket with the right trip.
