FINAL 2014 MEET STATS: 372 - 1082 / $1961.90  BEST BETS: 57 - 88 / $185.20

Best Bet: BULLET BOB (7th)

Spot Play: IRA CHIEF (9th)


Race 1

(4) ONE THROUGH TEN shows a useful qualifier at the Meadowlands and his previous local effort at this level was good; he may be tighter than the rest of these. (3) LATE NITE FLIGHT gets some needed class and post relief tonight and he should be more involved. (2) OUR CULLENSCROWN N bumps up for Vallee off a good uncovered score.

Race 2

(2) SIMPLY BUSINESS finally gets the post relief he needs and he should be aggressively handled from this spot. (8) OFF LIKA PROMDRESS drops and does have some early speed but overcoming the eight hole will be a tough task. (1) THUNDER NOISE was better in his second local start upon arriving from Fraser Downs.

Race 3

(6) DRUMFIRE A raced well versus better when last seen locally; leading driver Bartlett gets the call and it looks like he's as good as any in here. (4) SECOND WIND N doesn't win that often, but it seems he's always around. (2) ROCK TO GLORY ended 2014 with a solid trip-out win for the Godinez Barn.

Race 4

(2) ILIKEITREALHOT goes second start for DiDomenico and seems capable of improvement. (8) SCREAMAN SEAMAN N won his first North American start and the import clearly has ability but it will be tough from the eight hole. (7) FOREVER JUST gets some needed class relief but is also stuck outside.

Race 5

(3) STEUBEN PATRIOT has come a long way for the Stalbaum/Asher barn and he will be forwardly placed with the improved post. (2) GRAND MASTER bumps up off a game off-the-pace win. (5) RESCUE PLAN has raced well here in the past.

Race 6

(3) TAKE IT BACK TERRY raced last week at The Meadowlands, while the rest of this field has been off a month. That's a good angle, no? (4) MICKEY HANOVER is back up in the Open ranks and he's been pretty live for Dube. (8) O'SUNDLAND is really being tested for class but he can fire off the gate.

Race 7

(2) BULLET BOB had no chance last out at The Big M, but he returns locally and was recently a winner at this level from a similar post as the favorite. Why on earth is he 15/1 morning line??? (8) STONEHOUSE ADAM fits with these and Brennan probably won't be sitting last with the Burke trainee. (5) TWIN B HOLLISTER hit the board in his last three local efforts.

Race 8

(2) CHARGER BLUE CHIP is back down in class off two wasted efforts, and he was an upset winner last November at this level. (4) CLASSIC GENT ships from Saratoga and he looks like he can fit with these. (7) FAMEOUS WESTERN is probably best here but he may be handicapped by his outside post and lack of early speed.

Race 9

(8) IRA CHIEF overcame an outside post and jogged at this level locally two back; capable of repeating. (1) DREAMLANDS ART returns from The Meadowlands, where the veteran had been racing well. (5) PANCHESTER UNITED lacks the class of others but he's been very sharp.

Race 10

(4) MACHS BEACH BOY gets some needed class relief and if he's ready to go for Lachance he could be trouble. (1) ORILLIA JOE was well-spotted but broke last out; he's inside again and could provide some value. (6) EASY AGAIN likes to win for Burke and he's looking for three straight.

Race 11

(3) PAPPY'S PAL was a sharp trip-sitting winner versus lesser last out; like many others on tonight's card, if he's in shape and ready to go off the layoff he'll be tough. (2) SPINARAMA returns from Saratoga where he's been racing well. (4) KIWI IDEAL N was baked up on the front end when last seen here.

Race 12

(5) SKY IS THE LIMIT raced last week at The Meadowlands, and raced well in defeat. He could have a conditioning edge on the rest of these. (2) HANG TEN has been razor-sharp in his last two. (3) SHADY CITY bumps way up in class but he drew away powerfully in his last effort.
