Race 1

(2) DREAM BALL has been solid in her two starts since Bartlett took over the driving; filly should work out a perfect trip from this spot. (1) SHERKIN HANOVER was overmatched last out at Pocono; prior form is solid. (5) H ANDNHARLEYTHEJET raced pretty well in her local debut and had no chance from the outside post last week.

Race 2

(1) CUDA SIXTY SIX ships from Canada and joins the sharp Andrew Harris barn; big threat from this spot if he minds his manners. (7) COUNTRYGIRL AS is another Annette Lorentzon shipper from the the Midwest and we all saw how The Way I Am performed; filly deserves serious respect. (2) QUIKWIT finally put it all together last out at Pocono.

Race 3

(1) GEORGETOWN N has been razor-sharp for Garcia-Herrera and he is tough to overlook from this spot. (3) MILITARY STRATCOM hasn't fired at all this year but he's got speed and back class to call upon. (7) MACHAPELO is another with back class and Brennan drives tonight after a failed speed effort last out.

Race 4

(3) IT WAS FASCINATION was a solid winner locally three back and she may be able to get the jump on likely favorite (2) MAJOR DANCER. The latter has serious ability when her mind is in the game. (1) JUST ADD VODKA has been a steady earner all season long and she should be primed for a share from this spot.

Race 5

(4) MEDUSA has solid early speed and Tetrick will have her pointed to the front; filly can go coast to coast. (2) SUPLEMENTAL INCOME had no chance in the EBC Final at Tioga; this is clearly a better spot. (3) SKY ARTIST has been good in her last two and she will never be too far back.

Race 6

(3) BIG PAYOUT drops to a much more reasonable level tonight and he's clearly capable of getting the job done. (5) WINWOOD SCOUT returns locally and he's done well here in the past; Tetrick drives. (1) GO JESSE GO finally gets some post relief.

Race 7

(5) POINTE OF HONOUR actually gets to drops in class tonight off a solid effort in defeat; veteran deserves to be played tonight. (1) EX KING has shown a touch of improvement in his last two. (3) DO IT FOR ANNIE hails from live connections but she could have been better last week.

Race 8

(1) SHESAIDHESAIDISAID returns locally off a good effort in defeat down at Philly and Brennan can trip out from this spot. (6) HAPPILY EVER AFTER has been a fringe player in stakes action; this is obviously an easier spot. (4) JANINNE has been solid recently but note the barn change tonight; not sure if that's good or bad.

Race 9

(7) DELIGHTFUL DRAGON was used hard and gave way in the EBC final last week; filly has a load of ability and she can be a nice price from this tough spot. (2) BLUSH HANOVER has done little wrong in her brief career for Toscano. (3) SPREESTER has good, consistent speed.

Race 10

(1) PAM'S LEGACY is clearly in career form and he meets much of the same rivals he beat easily last week; repeats. (2) DIAMOND SAID bumps up off an easy score and he can sit pocket from start to finish. (3) CONNERY BLUE CHIP closed with plenty last out which was first off the claim.

Race 11

(6) SOMETHING FOR DOC has proven to be totally camera-shy but I just can't pass him up at this level. (5) KEEMOSABE has big speed but is kind of hit-or-miss. (4) UNCLE SMOOTHIE has missed a month off a sick scratch; proceed with caution.

Race 12

(2) DIRT DIAMOND arrives from Indiana with a pretty weak resume but she qualified nicely first-time in the Julie Miller barn and she is worth a look here. (5) CAROBBEAN PACETRY was super in her last two local appearances and Dube is back driving. (3) GET YOUR ARMOR gets post relief in her second local start.
