Race 2

(4) FREE ROLLIN is still looking to get underway this year but last week's effort wasn't awful; worth a look. (1) IZA BELLA ships from Saratoga, draws best and looks like she can fit here. (2) SECOND HAND NEWS has always been one of my favorites, but his regular pilot Holland isn't driving tonight.

Race 3

(1) COSMICPEDIA gets much-needed post relief in his local return and he should be ready to fly from this spot. (2) HARNESSNITENCANADA has been super in his last two and he can easily take another with a good trip. (3) BOOTS N BOURBON bumps up in class for new connections after blowing away a weak field.

Race 4

(6) THE WAY I AM won going away in his local debut and he may be even stronger tonight. (1) GEM SAM finished well in his career debut and the Mark Ford trainee deserves a long look from this spot. (7) CUTUP HANOVER has been facing tons better and must be included.

Race 5

(6) TIRADE HANOVER has been a disappointment this year after banking 500K as a 2 and 3-year-old; he's got the speed to contend here. (1) MOST WANTED LINDY ships down from Vernon and joins the Brainard barn; gelding needs to get away alertly in this added-distance event. (2) CURRENT CAST was facing better when last seen here.

Race 6

(1) CARD SHOCK was a solid second last out to Best Said, who came back to win again impressively last week. This three-year-old looks like lock-city tonight. (3) TITAN DE VIE joins the Buter barn after some live-looking efforts up in Maine. (5) ALWAYS A FLYIN returns locally after breaking his maiden at Philly.

Race 7

(3) BETTOR BUSINESS folded up badly on the lead last out at odds-on but she deserves one more chance at an improved price. (5) FLYING NUN kicked home nicely in her local debut. (1) GORDJUS draws best and can be counted on for a share.

Race 8

(1) STATUS WARRIOR ships back in and had a couple of good efforts here in May; from the rail slot she may be the one to beat. (7) SUPLEMENTAL INCOME is a fringe NYSS player who will be more involved tonight. (4) SOUTHWIND ILLUSION ships up from Harrington where she's been rock-solid in conditioned events.

Race 9

(3) BIG SEA LIGER returns locally off a win at The Meadows and the four-year-old clearly looks sharpest of these. (4) AEQUITAS was in a very tough NW5000 event last week; this is an easier spot. (7) BLIZZARD WARNING raced well here two back for Team Stratton.

Race 10

(1) NATURAL LEDA has been facing NYSS stakes foes and now he debuts for Garcia-Herrera, which is always a good angle. (3) TWIN B TENACIOUS has taken two straight at The Meadowlands in solid fashion. (4) AHEAD OF THE CROWD could land a share with a ground-saving trip.

Race 11

(5) BUSTA MOVE got snapped on the wire after a solid speed try when last at this level; he has some tough ones inside of him but the price might be right. (1) MISSISSIPPI HIPPY took all the money but didn't fire last week; another chance. (2) P H JACKPOT ran second in his local return and he's done plenty of good things over this track in the past.

Race 12

(3) FANTICIPATION returns locally and this three-year-old has obvious ability; she looks as good as any in here. (4) SUPER SOPH returns off a down-the-road win at Saratoga. (2) SCANDALICIOUS ships in for live connections sporting good current form.
