Race 1

(2) GOINROUNDNCIRCLES has had some good finishing pace in her last two and she should be live from this inside post. (6) HURRIKANE SCHUMMA added Lasix last week but it didn't seem to help; at least Sears drives again. (1) DELIGHTFUL DRAGON makes her debut off an even qualifier; tough to gauge.

Race 2

(1) ONE FINAL BLITZ ships in for live connections and easily disposed of a NW1 field at Pocono; filly may be ready for these. (2) MR NEW CASH closed well last week, now gets post improvement. (5) MYSTICAL CHEETAH picked up a small piece out of town; she may fit here.

Race 3

(2) SOMEKINDAMONSTER is far from a lock but the Allard trainee seems to be the most accomplished of these. (1) BEAUTIFUL LADY showed in that qualifier that she's ready for pari-mutuel action. (5) FANCY DESIRE was racing well but has missed time.

Race 4

(4) FIRST AQUA qualified well upon arriving in the Rene Allard barn; Sears drives. (1) JS MISS LINDA needed last week's effort and she should be better tonight. (3) HARDROCKENJESSICA has hit the board in three of four.

Race 5

(4) MASS MATAZZ had a useful effort upon her local arrival and she appears well spotted from this midpack post. (1) LITTLE KING COLE broke last week; prior effort was good. (8) HEY BUDDY MAC lands outside again which may seal his fate.

Race 6

(5) GLOW STICK finished with pace last out after lagging much of the way; her prior effort was solid and this filly may be ready to graduate. (1) IDEAL A LITTLE lands the rail and was a winner three back. (3) GLOWING FASHION finally gets a good post to work with.

Race 7

(1) SO TAKE THAT debuts for Coleman/Harris off the claim and he looms large from the rail, especially with Brennan driving. (4) ROCKNDREAM is back in with claimers and prior to that break last out he had been racing well. (3) SOUTHWIND CHASE changes hands again looking for three in a row.

Race 8

(2) COASTAL N was super-game in defeat last week after a tough trip; gelding is sharp and overdue. (5) COLONIAL ROAD enters a new barn tonight and he may be able to compete with these. (1) STONEBRIDGE ROCKET enters claimers, draws best and should be part of the early battle.

Race 9

(3) CASHENDASH HANOVER gets some needed post relief after having no shot in his last two; I'm taking a stab here in this wide-open event. (1) MACRAIDER N was a good second last week; veteran looms large from the rail. (8) ITS A GOOD THING has been good in all recent efforts but he may be done in by the eight hole.

Race 10

(5) MY SUGAR DADDY tried leaving from the eight hole last week but took back and had no chance; there doesn't appear to be a ton of early speed inside of him tonight. (1) FUZZYLEGSANDALL finally gets an inside post and I'm expecting an improved effort. (6) GLASS PRINCE had traffic issues last week; give him another look.

Race 11

(1) FOREVER GOOD gamely reeled in the speed last week and he deserves top billing off that effort. (5) PEMBROKE ALEC BUSH is back in the Robertson barn, where he's done good things. (8) ARTS ON FIRE may be a bit of a stretch from this spot but his last two efforts versus lesser have been solid.

Race 12

(2) GOOSE CREEK returns locally and the Burke trainee looks like the one to beat. (1) NO GIN raced pretty well in his debut for new connections. (7) COSMICPEDIA was hung to dry in his local return; he's had some success here in the past.

Race 13

(3) ONE MORE LAUGH would appear to have no excuse from this spot. (5) DAMON BLUE CHIP ships in from The Meadowlands for Burke and I'm sure Brennan will drive him aggressively. (4) ORR HANOVER takes a needed drop in class tonight and he should show more.
