MEET STATS: 252 - 732 / $1293.20  BEST BETS: 43 - 60 / $136.90


Spot Play: OOGLE GOOGLE (12th)


Race 1

(5) LONG FIGHT HANOVER was defeated late after an aggressive try last out; could be value here in this solid field. (1) VODKA IS TERROR drops back down to the level of his last win and Brennan is back driving; gelding is a bit erratic however. (4) GO GO RAIDER has maintained good form for an extended period of time now.

Race 2

(5) MISSISSIPPI HIPPY debuts for new connections via claim and he can be forwardly placed from this spot. (2) HEMER'S CARD SHOCK drops in class again off a slightly improved effort. (3) BOLDER gets class and post relief and he's certainly capable of hitting the ticket.

Race 3

(5) HIGHLAND ROCKSTAR was overmatched in stakes competition and she finds a better spot tonight; Sears drives. (3) CHEYENNE ROBIN flashed good speed last out at Philly but it was in a losing effort. (7) PERFECT PLAY did win from an outside spot two back and she will be a nice price tonight.

Race 4

(3) ZANNA BLU has been very consistent in her brief career for Brunet, including a rugged effort in her lone local appearance. (5) SUMMER SCENT won over this surface three back for Dan Daley. (1) PIG HUNT has done little wrong recently and she's obviously a contender here.

Race 5

(3) PHOTO MESSAGE stayed trotting and won her qualifier in debut for Lundell barn; worth a look in a race where anything goes. (4) COUNSELLOR AS has Brennan driving for live trotting connections. (1) MISS B'VILLE J needs to stay flat when she cuts that corner in the first turn.

Race 6

(3) NUNKERI has been speedy and smooth-gaited in her brief career. If she keeps that up she'll make loads of dough on the NYSS circuit. (1) FROU FROU was a decent second from a similar spot three back. (4) BARN DOLL has been super if you put a line through her breaking effort two back.

Race 7

(5) STORIES TO TELL gets Sears in the bike for the Ducharme barn and she'll attract plenty of attention at the windows. (2) MY TWISTED SISTER has a win versus NYSS competition on her card; obvious threat from this inside post. (8) THE CUSE will likely be firing for position from this spot; if the filly finds a tuck she can be trouble.

Race 8

(4) PAMS LEGACY is currently the king of the 30K claimers; sharp gelding can take another. (3) CONNERY BLUE CHIP debuts for another new barn and he can be excused for that effort last week, where he tired after an aggressive try. (1) NITESICANTREMEMBER lands inside off a pocket-sitting victory last out at Pocono.

Race 9

(7) SHAQLINE has looked very good in her two career appearances for Takter and she's got the ability to overcome the outside post. (2) BETCHA has been a solid earner for Daley and she should be close up throughout. (4) CONCENTRATION gets Sears and will be a big threat if she minds her manners.

Race 10

(2) KEYSTONE RAPTOR has missed a month since being claimed but the freelegged pacer qualified with vigor down at Philly. (3) WHOLLY LOUY was taken by Garcia-Herrera; we'll see how the veteran responds to the barn change. (5) JOHNNY Z returns locally off some speedy tries.

Race 11

(5) HAPPILY EVER AFTER kicked in too late last week upon arrival; more aggressive early handling can get the job done tonight. (1) BEAUTIFUL LADY went wire-to-wire last week but Bartlett's not driving tonight; beware. (4) SHESAIDHESAIDISAID has been second best in her last two and she figures highly for a board spot tonight.

Race 12

(3) OOGLE GOOGLE never had a chance from the eight hole upon arrival from Pennsylvania; I would expect Dube to be aggressive early tonight. (5) SOMEISLANDSOMEWHERE exits stakes company for Casie Coleman; overbet? (1) CAM FUNNY upset these last out; I guess a repeat is possible but she's probably better used to fill out exotic tickets.
