Race 1

(6) MACH TO THE MAX stayed in the pocket the entire trip last out but did gain some ground in the passing lane; threat to take this. (3) BOBJACKS ANGLE A was third best recently; could move forward with these. (5) FOUR CORNERS A was fast out of the gate, but could not hold the lead and had to settle for the place spot; watch out.

Race 2

(7) LUCK BE A LINDY makes her return to Yonkers where three starts back she raced evenly for the show spot; could be ready to fire her best. (1) PICKSYNC HANOVER comes by way of Philly, has some late punch; rail factor. (5) ABIDA HANOVER has been good enough to hit the board in her last four tries; not out of this.

Race 3

(4) LITTLE JOKE closed like a rocket for third four trips ago. Filly flashed speed at Monti last out; contender. (2) HILLBILLYSWEETSHRK was first up from 6th to second on the backstretch, did race well to hold the show spot; main danger. (3) FAN MAIL was quite game in her last try; must be considered against these.

Race 4

(4) MAH SISH N Nice score at The Meadowlands last time out. Gelding seems to be moving in the right direction; repeat not out of the question. (3) K SLATER could get involved with the post relief. (2) FASTLANELUKE was on the rim down the backstretch, but tired when they turned for home in his latest; the 2-hole can help his cause.

Race 5

(4) STONEBRIDGE TONIC was kind of sharp in his most recent try at Pocono. Makes his return to the Hilltop where he showed good early zip two starts ago; big threat. (2) FREE LOVE can be ready to fire his best given the fact he closed strongly to just miss the victory two tries back. (3) HOT SHOT LAWYER got the jump on them in the early stages but faded to fourth recently; don't overlook.

Race 6

(3) RURAL ART slingshot from 8th to third in the blink of a eye last time at Philly. Capable of moving forward so he can boss these at his best. (1) DEMOCRACY N rallied well to just miss by three quarters of a length last time out; main danger. (4) MIDNIGHT DYLAN N Gelding did show speed in the pocket but could not get to the winner Fool Me Once recently; beware.

Race 7

(3) COLOSSAL Have to love his versatility when he closed well for the show spot last out. Gets the 3-hole and that might be what he needs to make tonight a winning one. (2) WESTERN COLE gets class relief when his last score was on May 18th; dangerous against this group. (1) MACH PRIDE two bad tries, but hey they were from the 8-hole; should fare much better from the fence.

Race 8

(3) NATY post 6 did not help her so maybe the three slot should fit her nicely.  Very game mare did go down the road three starts ago and was on the rim to get the job done by three and a half lengths two outings back; all systems go to get back to her winning ways. (5) VRAKA HANOVER makes her return to Yonkers. Was second best at Monticello last out and flashed good speed in her third & fourth starts here; dangerous. (1) YES YOU CAN Sharp upstate with a wire to wire victory last time around; watch out from the rail.

Race 9

(2) ROCK MY WORLD 3-year-old filly has shown fine speed upstate; can top these all the way. (3) MELANIES SHARKETTE made a mild rally for third in her latest; can move forward. (7) ROCKERS ALLEY Was inside the entire trip and the 6-5 favorite Intoview was on her way to victory but the former shot up along the fence to put the latter to sleep; big player in here.

Race 10

(5) SECRETSOFTHEKNIGHT Is back at the NW12000 ranks where this gelding has done his best running. Was sharp on July 2 when he was a game second; threat. (1) TWIN B HOLLISTER was dull last time out, but is back on the rail where he was a good second. (3) UF ROCKIN DRAGON came close for win honors when he rallied for the show spot; don't overlook.

Race 11

(6) NIPPY W HANOVER Very consistent filly. Last time we saw her in the Sire Stakes on June 15, she was off the charts in seventh and closed like a shot to nail down the place spot; ready to fire her best. (2) SHES HEAVENLY Two third place finishes in a row puts this gal right in the mix. (4) LYONS SHADOW makes her return to Yonkers where she has showed good speed on June 22 & July 6 respectably.

Race 12

(5) THE LUNCH PAIL Gelding put in late kick last time out to just miss by only a length and a half. Form on the 4-year seems to be good for him to get back into the winner's circle. (4) VILLAGE BEAT was sitting in the pocket but was shuffled back, but did race gamely; dangerous. (3) OUTRAGEOUS ART gets class and post relief. The rest will have to run for second money if he returns to his down the road score on July 4; beware.
