BEST BETS: 25 - 82 / $129.70

Best Bet: THE ROCK (12th)



Race 1

(4) MEETYOUATMIDNIGHT moves down the ladder and figures to get a favorable trip; gets the call. (5) BJS GUY rallied strongly to nail down the victory upstate last out; main danger. (6) SAFE HARBOR showed good speed against better last out and must be considered.

Race 2

(5) LUCKY MCTRUCKY is clearly knocking at the door based on his latest; can move forward against this group. (4) VAGUE TRACES was on the engine most of the way last out but did not have enough gas in the tank; could make a quick turnaround. (1) ITSONLYROCKNROLL A gets post relief and that might help his cause; maybe.

Race 3

(2) WINNING LINC put in a nice run and got up for the placing last time around. Sophomore can mow these down with a well-judged drive. (6) SOMELUCKSOMEROCK takes a shot downstate against these and has some early zip; threat. (1) MITCH RYDER could have a say from the fence.

Race 4

(5) PLACE TO ROCKNROLL showed signs of life when this filly moved her trade to Yonkers; capable of moving forward. (2) BONIELLO has showed good speed in her last two tries; contender. (7) VERMILION BIRD has wheeled off two straight victories and should be right in the exotic mix.

Race 5

(7) I SAID PLEASE was sharp losing the victory by only a nose in her most recent outing. 3-year-old miss seems to be in good form so moving forward is clearly not out of the question. (1) THREE DIAMONDS was sent down the road in her latest for all the glory; dangerous from the rail. (6) PEACHY was sitting in the pocket most of the way but could not get close to the winner in her last try; watch out.

Race 6

(7) NEW JOEZ was third best in her last two trips to the post and this pacing mare could be rounding to form; worth a shot from the 7-hole. (2) ART CRITIC was facing slightly tougher in her last start so this might be a better spot for her to contend in here. (5) TRACEYS DESIRE leaves the 8-hole and could make some noise in the final strides.

Race 7

(6) HOT LEMONADE did not race badly in her last start and this pacing filly has tactical speed; poised to get the job done. (5) BELLATRICKS is very consistent and is knocking at the door to greet the cameraman for pictures. (2) HEAVENLY BRIDE put in a mild rally for the show spot last out.

Race 8

(7) SHOW THE FASHION Gelding was very game last out and retains the 7-hole; all systems go for win honors. (1) BRED TO RACE was flashing speed last time out but tired badly at the 3/4 pole; could turn things around. (5) COBRA JOE should be in a much better spot to contend with these; not out of this.

Race 9

(4) ANGS DELIGHT took charge turning for home but was caught at the wire in his last try; can atone in here. (2) BOTTOM DEALS was late on the scene to land down the place spot last time out; big threat. (3) HURRIKANE ALI Sharp for place honors last time around and figures to be right square in the hunt.

Race 10

(4) MR DS DRAGON got the job done right down the road last out and this gelding has been very sharp and consistent; can land another. (1) SHANE ADAM should fare much better from the fence and was a fast closing third two trips ago. (3) ENDEAVOR rallied strongly for show honors at Tioga recently.

Race 11

(2) SAFENSOUND HANOVER has been in the exacta in his last four starts and good to see Brennan with the assignment; the pick. (1) QUICK FUN N moves back to the fence where this gelding was a game second two starts back; contender. (5) IDEAL JIMMY raced evenly for show honors last out and could have a say in the outcome.

Race 12

(3) THE ROCK is knocking at the door based on his last two starts and this gelding can cook their goose turning for home. (1) BLOOD BROTHER leaves the Open ranks and gets the rail slot, plus Bartlett is keeping the faith; big threat. (5) JK HEAVEN SENT just held on for the score last time around and must be considered in all the exotic slots.
