Race 1

(2) BET THE TOWN qualified very nicely down at Philly and the veteran should be ready to roll off the brief vacation. (1) ORR HANOVER gets needed post relief after showing some speed from post eight last out. (5) ALLSTAR BLUES deserves a look off the Robertson claim.

Race 2

(6) MONTREAL PHIL goes second-time at this reduced level and is extremely logical but will be wildly overbet with Sears driving. (1) SMOKEALITTLESMOKE drops for the third straight time and last week's effort wasn't bad. (3) OURCULLENSCROWN N was used up in the early stages last week.

Race 3

(5) E L ROCK returns locally and is now with new connections; he's got some back class to call upon and could prove best in this tough-to-figure event. (1) PERFECT RENDITION is more than capable if he stays flat. (4) STAND GUARD returns off a win versus cheaper at Freehold.

Race 4

(5) FLOWING JAMES wasn't all that bad last week chasing some decent stock and the veteran faces some suspect rivals tonight. (2) ER UNDERCOVER is another Meadows shipper for Duspiva and they've had mixed success. (4) AMALFI COAST has talent but needs to stay trotting.

Race 5

(4) RED HOT SPICY ships in for Ake Svanstedt and coming from that barn the filly merits instant respect. (1) MUSCLESPRINCTONIAN has faced tons better in his last two. (3) QUIKWIT raced pretty well in his local debut despite a slow start.

Race 6

(5) VALENTINO raced big in defeat last out up at Saratoga and he's got plenty of back class to call upon. (3) CAVIART KEY held well after an uncovered trip in  last and he looms a big threat here. (2) BUBBIE BOY hasn't really done much recently but he can save ground and pick up a share from this inside post.

Race 7

(3) BANDEROSA is a late-blooming filly from Andrew Harris that has raced pretty well in her two career starts; Sears drives. (7) KEYSTONE CLASSY has been racing very well at Pocono including wins in two of her last three. (5) MYDELIGHT BLUECHIP was second best in a NY bred test two back.

Race 8

(3) BLIXTRA ships in for Svanstedt off a solid score at Pocono; filly is clearly the one to beat here. (2) WINE N MCROSES also arrives from Pennsylvania with good current form. (5) ALWAYS A ROMANCE has raced well in her last two at Saratoga for the very competent Austin Siegelman.

Race 9

(6) FASTER FASTER has shown a big late kick from time to time and if it sets up right she could charge by the two suspect favorites at a price. (1) SUPER SOPH always seems to have an excuse and just miss. (2) CUT A DEAL was overmatched last out at Freehold; prior efforts were good.

Race 10

(1) YO CHEYENNE ROCKY is back inside and back at the proper level; got to assume he's a lock to be on the lead or in the pocket from this spot. (2) GOBAN also gets needed post relief and is a big threat. (3) LETTUCEROCKU A is sharp now and wouldn't be a total shock.

Race 11

(3) LUCKY MAN finished with pace last week in his debut for Ruiz off the claim and he gets Sears in the bike tonight. (1) PENCE HANOVER was a solid second last week to the streaking Pams Legacy. (4) MOVEOUTOFMYWAY gets some post relief and he's clearly capable of rounding out the bottom of the ticket.

Race 12

(5) OK FANTASTIC encountered tough trips in his last two which can be excused; Schnittker trainee has yet to win on the season but the price should be right to take a shot with him. (4) THE POKESTER gets class and post relief; logical. (6) SEEK THE DRAGON has been up against some tough claimers in his last three.
