MEET STATS: 332 - 942 / $1829.10       BEST BETS: 47 - 75 / $156.90

Best Bet: RUSSLEY RASCAL N (7th)

Spot Play: E Z NOAH (2nd)

Race 1

(1) DON'T FOOL WITH ME drops back down to the level where he was very live two back; he clearly looks like the one to beat from this spot. (5) RAFFERTY HANOVER needed his last start, where he raced evenly while uncovered; capable of improvement. (4) ABBEYLARA was in a bit over his head in his last three off the claim; this is a better spot.

Race 2

(3) E Z NOAH was racing well with better when last seen locally; four-year-old looks very well spotted here. (1) BUBBIE BOY drops and finally lands an inside post; Brennan sticks with him. (2) COACH CAL returns off a blowout score at Monticello; prior local start he was leaving hard when he make that break.

Race 3

(3) SAFE HARBOR parlayed a perfect trip into a win versus better two back and he can take this with another favorable journey. (4) OFFICERNAGENTLEMAN also drops a notch in class and has been racing well. (1) BIG TIME ROCKS has raced well since returning locally and he draws best.

Race 4

(3) CAM B ZIPPER picks up Sears in his local return and he's got plenty of gate speed to leave and sit a perfect trip. (6) ARACACHE HANOVER drops in class tonight but he's been lacking the winning touch recently. (5) MR HASANI N also drops and he needed last week's start.

Race 5

(7) CODE WORD is stuck outside again but if Yannick takes a shot and leaves hard this one could take these a long way. (4) P H SUPERCAM looks for four straight and could be a price again. (8) MICHAEL'S POWER was a front-end odds-on winner when last seen here.

Race 6 - Lady Maud Final

(5) CHARISMA HANOVER powered off to a convincing score in last week's elimination and that clearly stamps her as the filly to beat in the Lady Maud Final. Short price expected. (1) SCANDALOUS HANOVER was the other elimination winner and she's been super since joining the Casie Coleman barn. Drawing outside of the top choice will severely compromise her chances tonight. (3) HANDSOFFMYCUPCAKE was a decent second last week and she's still looking for that elusive first seasonal victory.

Race 7

(2) RUSSLEY RASCAL N got away last and got going too late last week; it's a different story tonight from this inside post. Short price looming. (4) ROLLWITHITHARRY has been hard to fault in all five starts since joining the DiDomenico barn. (5) NOBLE FALCON was second best at this level last out.

Race 8 - Messenger Final

(3) WORD POWER was a solid second in last week's elimination. From this spot expect Brennan to be aggressive early and he may get the jump on his rivals who have drawn outside. (1) ODDS ON EQUULEUS didn't look all that good last week but he managed to make the final. We all know that this three-year-old is better than that. Drawing the best post will only help his chances. (7) SUNFIRE BLUE CHIP was a very game uncovered winner last week. The field's highest seasonal earner will have his work cut out for him from post seven.

Race 9

(3) LIGHTNING RAIDER N gets Brennan back in the bike tonight and they teamed up for a win a few starts back. (1) ELECTROFIRE debuts for new connections off a blowout win; Sears drives again. (8) DALLENBACH HANOVER is up in class off that well-meant eight-hole score; can he repeat?

Race 10

(2) CLASSIC ROCK NROLL gets much-needed post relief tonight and two back he almost took a better field the distance. (5) TRIGGER FINGER left alertly last out and was an upset winner; perhaps he can leave the gate again. Tetrick drives. (1) MYSTERIOUS MOMENT lands inside and should save ground for a share.

Race 11

(2) SAPPHIRE CITY drops from the Open ranks, where he had three consecutive eight holes; gelding looks like lock-city from this spot. (1) MONTREAL PHIL should be aggressive from the gate and look to sit a trip behind the top choice. (4) PANCETTA is a strong candidate to hit the ticket.

Race 12

(2) BETTOR'S EDGE picked up Tetrick and was hustled home a game winner; repeats. (3) SECOND WIND N has been feeling good recently and he looks second best here. (1) NOB HILL HIGH has been off his game for a while now but he should land a share from this spot.

Race 13

(2) THE BRUISER was super two back, then went backwards last out. This isn't a strong field he meets tonight and he should be a decent price. (3) FOREIGN OFFICER could be forwardly placed early and be cutting the mile. (5) SIR MELO'S Z TAM is tough to endorse for the top spot but he could round out exotic tickets.
