Race 1

(3) FOUR STARZ KYLE ships in and doesn't face a particularly strong field; chance to wake up. (4) SIR ZIGGY'S Z TAM sat and was third best last week as the favorite; more aggressive handling tonight? (1) MAJOR BELLE should be close up tonight.

Race 2

(1) VILLAGE BEAT dropped to this level last week and got hung to dry from post seven; no such problems tonight from this spot. (5) MR PERSEVERENCE gets Brennan in the bike and he will likely be leaving the gate. (2) TRIGGER FINGER was never a threat last week; gelding draws well again and can be considered for the bottom of the ticket.

Race 3

(5) NEPTUNE was never really involved last week; four-year-old stays at the same level with no standouts here and he could strike off a live trip. (3) ABBEYLARA gets some needed post relief tonight. (4) LIGHTNING STRIKE woke up with a good effort last week.

Race 4

(8) P H JACKPOT is stuck in post eight but this is the weakest field he's faced in some time and he must be considered a major player here. (1) HYPNOTIST bumps up off a win and he's got plenty of back class. (3) CHEYENNE JEFFREY should be close up throughout and he can land a share.

Race 5

(5) N J LAW has raced well in all recent starts and he only needs a live trip to score versus these. (3) TWIN B HOLLISTER bumps up off a loss and he loses Brennan but he's got as good a shot as any in this tough-to-figure event. (4) ELECTROFIRE had no real excuse last week but it was an improved effort.

Race 6

(1) DREAM OUT LOUD N bumps back to the Open ranks off a solid score versus one notch lesser; gelding could work out a live stalking trip in here and post the upset. (5) ESCAPE THE NEWS returns for Burke and he's been in good form recently. (2) KEYSTONE VELOCITY has proven he can go with this type. He was an injured scratch last out but the fact that he's right back in is a good sign.

Race 7

(3) HI HO STEVERINO drops back to a more reasonable level and is a threat to take this with a live trip. (7) VALENTINO is a major speed threat here; good to see Cat Manzi back in the bike. (2) JERRY'S BROWN GOLD runs hot and cold but he could jog here on his best day.

Race 8

(4) SHOW ME UP faltered on the front end last week; another chance. (3) LUMBERJACK WILLIE has really impressed since arriving from Indiana. (8) MACHS BEACH BOY would clearly be the pick in here if not for the tough outside post.

Race 9

(5) PIERAZ certainly hasn't disgraced himself since arriving; gelding appears overdue. (1) FOREST VIC A only has a few starts left in him; 14-year-old should be live from this spot. (2) COLE HEAT acclimated well last week.

Race 10

(1) ROADWAY raced huge in defeat last week; from this inside post he looks tough to beat tonight. (3) I LIKE DREAMIN drops in class and lands a better post. (8) LETTUCEROCKU A also drops but is stuck outside; price factor for exotic plays.

Race 11

(2) ESPEN DE VIE drops in class and finally gets post relief; maybe. (5) WAYNE THE LEFTY has quietly earned over 100K this year; gelding is capable with a live trip. (3) SHORTSTACKED should save ground and rally late.

Race 12

(1) ROCK TO GLORY gets lucky with another favorable draw and Stratton should work out a perfect trip. (6) SAPPHIRE CITY drops out of the Open and this classy gelding looks like the chief threat. (4) NOBLE FALCON bumps up off a win and looks like a player for the bottom of the ticket.
