MEET STATS: 363 - 1076 / $1,998.60

BEST BETS: 48 - 88 / $158.60

Best Bet: SANTA FE BEACHBOY (12th)

Spot Play: TAKE IT BACK TERRY (5th)


Race 1

(4) THESEYESRCRYING has raced pretty well in all recent efforts and the veteran could be a speed threat in a race full of question marks. (2) IN THE ARSENAL looked ready to break through two back but followed that up with an awful effort; who knows what to expect. (5) FOOL ME ONCE hasn't been at his best recently but he's proven at this level.

Race 2

(3) LORD OF MISRULE just missed in his last two tries at this level and he can be close enough to strike from this spot. (4) MAH SISH N is better than he's been showing and should offer good value. (2) FIERY LUSTRE N had zero excuse last out but that was against better; Bartlett sticks with him.

Race 3

(4) MOONLITEONTHEBEACH always gives a good accounting of himself and could strike late off a hot pace. (5) ROCK ON MOE fired to the lead and was dead-game in victory last week; could certainly repeat. (3) CASIMIR JITTERBUG returns locally off a win at Pocono and he's more than capable with these.

Race 4

(6) BETTOREVER was used really hard trying to secure position last out but had to take back to third anyway then was shuffled and boxed; his prior effort he came up a bit flat but the Bamond trainee has done well versus better in the past and he deserves top billing. (4) TWIN B IMPRESSIVE blew away cheaper two back. (3) OH JONNY B GOOD N drops in class, draws decently enough and could be a closing threat.

Race 5

(3) TAKE IT BACK TERRY went a huge uncovered effort last week when first time Lasix; classy Burke trainee can repeat despite stepping up in class. (7) KEYSTONE VELOCITY was underwhelming in that Invitational last week, his debut for Allard after the high-priced purchase. He can be more involved tonight. (4) THE REAL ONE is very sharp and is proven at this level.

Race 6

(6) NOT AFRAID was used a bit in the early stages last out and came up flat late at odds-on; Takter trainee is arguably best here and the price will be much more attractive tonight. (4) MONROE COUNTY raced very well last week in that added-distance event. (3) DOT DOT DOT DASH was nailed on the wire last out after enjoying a live trip.

Race 7

(3) LUMINOSITY was going nowhere from the back of the pack in the Invitational last week but he was a wire-to-wire winner the start prior; he's got a post edge here on his main rivals. (7) MELADY'S MONET was dead-game last week to be second best to Bee A Magician; problem here is the outside post. (5) MAJOR ATHENS toured the track last week in a needed start and he'll offer some value with Bartlett opting off.

Race 8

(7) ROCK N ROLL WORLD put it all together last week and was a dominating winner; 4-year-old can come right back. (8) BLOOD BROTHER has loads of talent but is stuck outside again and failed to get involved in his last two starts from poor posts. (3) MCARDLES LIGHTNING seems capable at this level.

Race 9

Against better judgment I'm selecting (3) FOILED AGAIN. The old man wasn't as bad as it looked last week, as very few would have overcome that grind into the rated pace. With the right setup he can still get it done. (2) TE KAWAU N raced well at big odds off the layoff and he's a big threat from this spot. (4) RAMPAGE JACKSON is as game as they come but the former basement claimer has his work cut out for him against these tonight.

Race 10

(2) SOMEWHERE FANCY gets needed post relief after closing well from too far back in his last two; Allard trainee looms large from this spot. (1) RONNY BUGATTI drops in class, draws best and is a player. (4) FAMEOUS WESTERN raced well last out versus one notch lesser; he has a shot to hit the ticket.

Race 11

(6) MONEY MAVEN was an easy winner at this level three back with Bartlett driving. (4) ZOOMING has raced much better in his last three; threat. (1) PIERCEWAVE HANOVER could land a share if he minds his manners early.

Race 12

(5) SANTA FE BEACHBOY has looked very good beating lesser in his last two; Banca trainee is sharp enough to take another. (1) SAPPHIRE CITY had no real excuse last week flattening out in the late stages; clearly he's better than that. (2) DREAM OUT LOUD N draws well again and should be close up throughout.
