MEET STATS: 340 - 991 / $1,838.40

BEST BETS: 44 - 82 / $147.60

Best Bet: THE REAL ONE (12th)

Spot Play: SOMEWHERE IN L A (3rd)


Race 1

(2) EXIT CAM hasn't won in forever but he could work out a perfect stalking trip from this spot and he's proven capable with this type in the past. (4) DEMOCRACY N left hard and broke in the first turn last out; he could bounce right back if more cautiously handled. (1) TYLER figures to try and take these as far as he can.

Race 2

(1) KEYSTONE HONOR finally lands a needed inside post and the Laterza trainee has proven himself to be a good fit with these. (7) SNAP TO IT A returns to Bartlett while facing a softer group; big threat despite the outside post. (8) IN THE ARSENAL is still looking for his first 2016 win and has been searching for the right spot. This level may be it but overcoming the eight hole may be too much to ask.

Race 3

(7) SOMEWHERE IN L A was 2/5 versus better last out and was collared by a classy rival who came back and won again; Burke trainee really should get the job done against this type. (3) AMERICAN VENTURE was impossible to hold when last seen locally but he rebounded with a nice win at Philly. (5) HERE WE GO AGAIN gets Bartlett in the bike and has plenty of back class.

Race 4

(3) TEXAS TERROR N had plenty of late interest in that qualifier last week and he's a proven winner at this level. (2) BORDER CONTROL A took all the money last out and was sent down the road, holding off a sharp rival in the process; clear threat. (1) BETTOR ROCK ON N gets needed post relief and can trip out from this spot.

Race 5

(3) GHOST PINE was third best last out to a couple of tough ones and he was an upset winner versus this type four back; worth a long look in this wide-open affair. (6) THESEYESRCRYING was snapped on the line in a good speed effort last out and he could be leaving the gate again. (5) REGGIANO returns locally off a big upset score versus lesser at Pocono.

Race 6

(7) MELADY'S MONET has to overcome a tough outside post but the classy veteran is more than capable with any sort of live trip. (6) E R ELLIE shows up to work every week and it's hard to leave the mare off your tickets. (4) MONEY MAVEN steps back up to the Open level in razor-sharp form looking for four straight.

Race 7

(6) ARTISTIC MAJOR has put in a good effort in practically every local start and he just needs a smooth trip here to connect. (7) BLOOD BROTHER brushed and crushed last week, is clearly overloaded with talent but is unproven from outside posts. (2) GO DADDY GO should be considered underneath from this decent starting spot.

Race 8

(5) POLAK A is pretty much unproven at this top level but last week he rallied impressively from a tough spot; consider on top if the price is right. (6) MACH IT SO is back from Harrington after running second to Wiggle It Jiggleit and the sharp pacer has a proven record here. (8) BIT OF A LEGEND N moved early last week, rated the action and jogged. It won't be as easy tonight.

Race 9

(2) COWBOY TERRIER came up just shy last out trying to kick home from off the pace; from this spot Bartlett can take control early and never look back. (3) FREESPIN N has raced well in his last few efforts but he loses Bartlett to the top choice. (4) STOLEN CAR hit the ticket in his last four tries at this level.

Race 10

(7) FIRST CLASS HORSE has been an unbelievable force in two starts since moving to Team Milici; stay on board. (5) LIMELIGHT BEACH returns locally after beating lesser at Pocono and the Burke trainee has plenty of back class. (1) ROCK ON MOE was unaggressively handled last out and therefore had no chance; he should hold position from the rail and land a share.

Race 11

(1) CASH ME OUT returns locally with the best post and was very sharp in his previous Yonkers efforts; clearly the one to beat from this spot. (2) RED HOT HERBIE takes a needed drop from the Open and was a winner four back from a similar spot. (6) SPRINGBANK SAM N probably should have shown more last week; use the recent import underneath.

Race 12

(3) THE REAL ONE drops from the Open, where he's had good pace in every start; I think it's practically impossible for him to lose tonight. (1) WESTERN ROCKSTAR A draws best and seems capable with a good setup. (2) ALLBEEF N NO BULL was going nowhere last out trying to chase the rating frontrunners; he should be in line for a better trip from this spot.
