BEST BETS: 43 - 80 / $144.90

Best Bet: FASHION DELIGHT (12th)



Race 1

(2) THE SMIDGE arrives from Pocono and draws well in a suspect field; leading driver Bartlett gets in the bike. (5) BANK SEA returns locally off some live efforts. (1) WHITE BLISS is pretty to look at but he hasn't proven his worth on the racetrack yet.

Race 2

(3) MATTAMERICAN has shown good speed here in the past and he should be heading to the front from this spot. (1) AMERICAN RAGE changes barns and has always represented himself well from inside posts. (4) SOHO JACKMAN A gets some needed class relief.

Race 3

(1) E Z NOAH has been a good second in his last two off of uncovered trips; assuming he behaves himself he should take charge here. (2) MACINTOSH N was a solid two-move winner last week for Vallee. (6) BORDER CONTROL A saved ground for a minor sharp last out; hard to ignore anything from this remarkable trainer.

Race 4

(7) RED HOT HILL clearly needed last week's race and despite drawing outside again she may be more interested tonight. (2) THIS DAY FORWARD raced pretty well in her local debut. (1) ROBOCALL HANOVER ships in for Burke with Brennan driving, has speed and the best draw.

Race 5

(1) SELFIE shows a win at this level, which not many others can say, plus the filly draws best; MacDonald should work out a live trip. (4) ARROW HANOVER just missed last out and is a clear threat. (6) NEVER ANY DOUBT was a solid winner last week versus cheaper for Allard and she may have more to offer.

Race 6

(2) HOT LEMONADE was a good second last out to a monster and she has a post edge here on her main rivals. (6) ALBANY GIRL returns locally for Team Milici off an odds-on score at Philly. (8) MAJOR MILLIE has clear ability but the worst post.

Race 7

(4) STATION THREEOHSIX was a good second when last at this level and he lures Stratton off a Schnittker trainee; worth a try in this wide-open event. (2) WICK N tired chasing a runaway last out and we won't see a pace like that in this race. (3) DRUNKEN DESIRE A does fit with these types and can be considered for a share.

Race 8

(6) ROCK ON MOE tries Holland in the bike tonight and always gives a 100% effort; veteran usually offers value as well. (4) VALIDUS DEO was a nice winner versus one notch lesser two back. (1) BAKERSFIELD draws best and is good enough for a board spot.

Race 9

(1) SOMELUCKSOMEROCK draws best for the aggressive Stalbaum and faces a field with some question marks. (2) GRAND THEFT didn't race badly last out and draws well enough. (7) BRUNELLO N was a winner at odds-on versus these in last but wasn't overly impressive and now he's stuck outside.

Race 10

(2) HURRIKANE ALI was very sharp from the pocket in just his third start of the year; Dube will be able to step out over the rail horse early and sit another winning trip. (3) STONEBRIDGE BEACH was collared by the top choice and it could very well happen again. (4) SILVER BULLET ships in from Philly with some nice-looking form; threat.

Race 11

(4) BOSTON RED ROCKS was supposed to be one of the top 3-year-olds coming into this season but that obviously didn't work out, however he's paying the bills with almost $270K banked. He deserves top billing but may be overbet. (5) SIPPIN ON SUDS was very game to hold second after a tough trip in his local debut. (3) LONE SURVIVOR was all out and not gaining late last week but he gets post relief tonight.

Race 12

(7) FASHION DELIGHT hasn't shown speed from outside posts recently but that was against better; would anyone really be surprised if he fires to the top at all costs and forgets to stop? (5) SAPPHIRE CITY just missed to a Team Milici good thing last week; veteran always has to be considered. (3) SHADES OF BAY faces tougher here and needs a live trip for his best chance.
