Race 1

(7) TAKE INTO ACCOUNT had no real chance moving uncovered into a sharp winner last week; she's got a shot here versus a much softer group. (2) BETS DRAGGIN FLY gets post relief and could be more involved. (1) TESSLA BLUE CHIP lands the rail but there's not much else to endorse here.

Race 2

(5) NOWERLAND FIREBIRD was about to clear and open up on the field when she broke; mare qualified back safely and is more than capable with these. (2) PASS THE POPCORN gets class and post relief; big threat. (1) UNCLE FREDDIE ships from Pocono, lands the rail and has Sears driving.

Race 3

(4) LADY RIVIERA needed last week's start, her first off the long layoff. These connections must be respected. (1) ALPHADOODLE hasn't had much NYSS success, but those two Canadian efforts in May were impressive. (3) VIXEN has plenty of speed and stays flat.

Race 4

(1) LOLA DE VIE has been strong this season for the Ryder barn and she's clearly the one to beat here.  (7) PALM BEACH CHIC has found her stride in her last three for Toscano. (4) ISABELLA GAL is still trying to find her way after that stellar freshman campaign.

Race 5

(3) SECOND HAND NEWS was facing much better when last seen here and the veteran should easily handle things here. (4) GET CHIPPED is always competitive with this type. (6) CRYPTO MAN was a good second at this level and distance two back.

Race 6

(2) GIANNA'S DELIGHT flashed good speed out of town in NY sired events; prior to that was a good closing effort. (1) STATUS WARRIOR was likely facing better at Pocono. (7) MARY BITS threw in a clunker last out at Philly but her prior form was good.

Race 7

(3) SOLID QUEEN ships in off a game placing at The Meadowlands and this filly may be a touch faster than these. (2) DRAGON RUFFLES has been hard to fault in all recent efforts at Philly; Brennan drives. (1) STUNNING LADY was Sears' choice here and the Pavia, Jr. trainee fits well here.

Race 8

(3) GLOWING FASHION ships south from Canada and finds a reasonable spot for her local debut; timid vote here. (2) WICKED ELPHABA has flashed speed in her last two from midpack posts; she can be more prominent from this spot. (1) TRILLIAN was going nowhere last week from the eight hole; it's a different story tonight from the rail.

Race 9

(1) BOLDER should have shown more last out, but that was against better; with the drop and the rail draw he looms the one to beat tonight. (4) WYNSUM MAGIC ships back locally and also gets class relief; hails from live connections. (2) SAND SAVAGE ships from Pocono for Simpson, where he's had moderate success.

Race 10

(3) LONG ISLAND TEA hit a couple of bumps in the road once entering the NYSS picture but she qualfied effortlessly with the hobbles added and she could be ready to roll tonight with Morrill in the bike. (1) LOUISE KEMP was very game in defeat last week up at Tioga. (2) PROCLAIMING APRIL has been a solid money-earner this season for Smedshammer.

Race 11

(4) GLASS PACK is reunited with Sears tonight and this veteran is always a threat with these. (6) MY SUGAR DADDY found the water a bit too deep last week; he's back in with claimers tonight. (1) SOUTHWIND CHASE went evenly in his first start for Allard and he draws well again.

Race 12

(2) SALEVSTER STALLION is back in claimers after proving overmatched in his last couple; the class relief will help his cause tonight. (5) ITS A GOOD THING debuts for Fraley via claim and Sears is back driving. (3) GLASS PRINCE freshened up in the morning at Philly and should be ready to roll tonight.

Race 13

(3) MC DYNAMITE finished willingly in his first start for new connections and now he gets major post relief; lots to like. (5) HAVERFORD HANOVER has loads of speed and back class; worth a look. (1) SPARKY hasn't been at his best recently, but he looms a threat from this spot.
