Race 1

(1) LILSHARKSHOOTER has made live moves in his last two and he may be ready to end his seasonal skid. Note the barn change as well. (5) DOLLARS BROMAC N is certainly a speed threat. (2) FOUR TRUMPS A drops to a new low hoping to awaken.

Race 2

(3) MEADOWCROFT MAN had some belated trot last week upon arrival and he's capable of being more involved tonight. (2) JS MISS LINDA ships in for Buter and the mare was likely facing touger at Pocono. (7) S F CIRO never wins but he does have gate speed which should serve him well in this added-distance event.

Race 3

(4) CHA CHA MAGIC broke early while on the move last week; give the filly another chance. (2) CLASS STAR ships in for Simpson and he’s hinted at some ability. (6) LITTLE KING COLE had some finishing trot upon arrival from Ohio and he can build off that effort.

Race 4

(1) MERGATROID arrives off a solid effort at Pocono. The filly has speed, draws the best post and has Brennan driving. (2) WISH ME LUCK AS had a useful initial effort over this surface last week. (7) HEY BUDDY MAC has done little wrong in his brief career, but will he have too far to come from this spot?

Race 5

(2) HAPPY APPLES closed willingly from a tough spot in his local return and she figures to be much more involved tonight from the inside post. (1) LET HER ROCK failed at The Meadowlands but she qualified effecively at Philly. (4) BETTOR ANGEL tried to leave last week but went nowhere; she gets post relief and has Sears driving tonight.

Race 6

(1) FIT TO FRAME draws best here and the filly may simply be faster than these. (3) RUSH AND A BRUSH has been racing really well at Plainridge and she deserves a shot to race for real money; filly picks up a catch-driver as well. (2) JET ANGEL was a decent second last out and she'll be close up throughout.

Race 7

(3) COASTAL N has been good in all recent efforts and he appears ready to elevate to the next step. (1) GO WEST LUCKY CAM had no chance in his first off the claim; draws best tonight. (7) MILITARY STRATCOM is always a threat with these and he's got the speed to overcome the poor post.

Race 8

(2) GLASS PRINCE drops and draws back inside; big threat. (3) MISSISSIPPI HIPPY was a game winner at this level last week and he stays in the same class off the claim. (4) SOUTHWIND CHASE is another that looks for two straight.

Race 9

(2) REFLECTION ON ME debuts for new connections and draws better off a tough-trip 5th; maybe. (3) THAT MAN OF MINE closed with plenty from a similar spot two back. (5) PAINTS HALL just missed versus these last week and he would be no shock.

Race 10

(5) BRUSSELS HANOVER seems logical, will likely be a short price but proceed with caution. (1) LIGHT OF DAY held well for second after being passed last week; draws best again. (4) AFTER ALIMONY ships in for good connections.

Race 11

(5) MACRAIDER N blazed the way in his last two before tiring; oldtimer is always a speed threat. (4) SHEER DESIRE goes for new connections; will he maintain his form? (7) CASHENDASH HANOVER was Brennan's choice and he does get class relief.

Race 12

(4) KEEMOSABE gets some needed post relief and he figures to be forwardly placed from this spot. (3) ERIDANUS N also moves back inside and he's very capable on his best day. (1) LUCKY MAN showed some signs of life last out and he will be the speed from the rail.

Race 13

(5) YANOYANOMENOW was rallying last out when he broke; prior effort was good. He's got as good a shot as any in here. (2) SHOW ME UP plummets in class, should awaken. (3) BET THE TOWN has back class, which resurfaced last out at Pocono.
