Best Bet: DREAM BALL (4th)

Spot Play: DUKES UP (3rd)


Race 1

(5) FOX VALLEY LEO drops in class in his second local start and he meets a very weak field; camera-shy type didn't race that badly versus better. (1) DVC GIVERMEATTITUDE draws best and raced well two back. (4) BEAU RIVAGE N has seen better days but he's still capable of getting the job done.

Race 2

(5) SPACED OUT broke last week but had shown good speed prior; another chance. (8) THE WAY I AM has taken two straight since his arrival but the eight hole may be too much to overcome tonight. (1) EMBRACE PEACE may improve with the change in venue.

Race 3

(4) DUKES UP drops back to the level of the claim off a no-chance effort and he should be rearing to go from this spot. (3) ARTS BLAZE rarely wins but he's thrown in some good efforts from time to time. (5) MASTER STROKE takes a needed drop in class.

Race 4

(5) DREAM BALL gets a big driver change to Bartlett tonight and that can make all the difference. (7) FLYING NUN has been second best in her two local appearances but she has little early speed which may make her journey difficult. (1) KELADI BLUE CHIP draws best upon arrival and she can grab a share.

Race 5

(8) COLUMBIA LION has ability but needs to stay flat. Garcia-Herrera trainee meets a field with question marks and he can be good value from this spot. (1) FLASHBACK drops in class and draws best; logical. (6) HARDROCKENJESSICA has had her moments here in the past.

Race 6

(5) ALWAYS A FLYIN was super in defeat two weeks ago then was a transportation scratch in last week's monsoon; three-year-old is definitely worth a play here. (1) GREAT AMERICAN raced very gamely in defeat for his new connections and he draws best here. (2) RICKY BLUE EYES should be in line for another live trip.

Race 7

(3) WATERSIDE CHAMP debuts for new connections after being hard used last out; worth a look in this competitive event. (4) BACK TO THE WEST raced well in defeat in last to a classy winner. (5) KID CRUISER can almost always be counted on for a share.

Race 8

(5) BEST SAID returns to Yonkers and raced huge in his two local appearances. (1) LORD OF MISRULE exits a solid effort at Pocono and certainly is logical from this spot. (2) BARBARIAN hails from Takter; enough said.

Race 9

(4) JANINNE had no chance last week from post eight snapping her win streak; the move back inside can help her cause. (2) SOUTHWIND ILLUSION wasn't bad in her local debut and she can show more tonight. (6) CAROBBEAN PACETRY went a big trip for the upset in last.

Race 10

(8) BREATHTAKING steps up in class and draws the eight hole yet still looks like the one to beat. (5) FASTER FASTER hasn't put in a bad effort in some time. (4) SENTIMENTAL LADY was overmatched in her last two; this is the right level.

Race 11

(1) PAMS LEGACY has put in three good efforts since the Sabot claim, inclusing a rugged uncovered try last out. The post relief should get him over the top tonight. (2) CLEM rallied stoutly in last at a big price. (6) CASHENDASH HANOVER was an interesting claim and he's worth a look but he's got some tough ones inside of him tonight.

Race 12

(2) AMERICAN RAGE has loads of class to him and this looks like a prime spot to get back on the winning track. (2) MISSISSIPPI HIPPY was a good second last out to a rival that went a huge trip. (7) YO CHEYENNE ROCKY has raced well with this type in the past; maybe he can spice up the exotics tonight.
