MEET STATS: 391 - 1122 / $2,133.90

BEST BETS: 51 - 91 / $169.10

Best Bet: FREESPIN N (1st)



Race 1

(1) FREESPIN N returns locally off a win out of town and the Bamond trainee has been competitive with better here; he will likely be controlling the action from this spot. (3) ROLAND N ROCK has the speed to be in play early and sit the garden trip. (4) NESH CRUISER ships in from Saratoga for sharp connections and he can be considered for a share at a price.

Race 2

(1) AVENTURE has raced well in all recent efforts, draws best and driver Ciuffetelli will try to take these coast to coast. (3) THE FRANCHISE fits well with these and has one of the more accomplished amateur drivers in the sulky. (2) LADYS BIG STORMONT has gone wire-to-wire in his last two amateur events and he'll be looking to protect close up early position.

Race 3

(3) GAELIC AND GARLIC hasn't won locally in some time but he appears overdue and faces nothing special in here. (1) ON THE PODIUM had little to offer last week in the added-distance event but the veteran went wire-to-wire versus cheaper in his two prior starts. (2) LAUDERDALE should be close up throughout and could threaten late with a ground-saving trip.

Race 4

(1) KADABRASNEWRECRUIT gets needed post relief in his local return for Allard and he was a winner when last at this level. (6) WING FLASH was solid in her local debut, her first start for the Julie Miller barn and Sears sticks with her despite facing better. (7) GEORGINA CORNER draws poorly but she does get Bartlett back in the bike.

Race 5

(1) PIERCEWAVE HANOVER should get the job done from this spot assuming he minds his manners. (3) XTATIC HANOVER has been razor-sharp for the Ruiz barn and was a solid second last week. (4) ZORGWIJK NOVA gets post relief in her second start after being reclaimed by Banca and Bartlett is back driving; big threat.

Race 6

(4) ROCK ON MOE has been ultra-consistent this season and just went over the $100K mark again; his early speed can set up a good trip for this veteran. (2) CLEAR VISION is still a solid high-conditioned horse from Burke who's been very sharp in his last few. (1) MCARDLES LIGHTNING stopped badly last out but clearly he's better than that; Bartlett drives tonight.

Race 7

(4) POLAK A qualified very nicely last week after that debacle the start prior; Russo trainee is a proven commodity at this level. (1) RAMPAGE JACKSON is the claim of the year, plucked for $12,500 and now a legit threat in the winners-over. His speed and the rail slot makes him a must-use. (3) AMERICANPRIMETIME was overmatched in the Breeders Crown last week; four back he tied the track record.

Race 8

(5) KEYSTONE VELOCITY has come up just shy in his last two; it's time for the recent high-priced Allard purchase to break through. (4) MACH IT SO picked up a check in last week’s Wiggle It/Miki showdown and clearly he's in with a big chance from this spot. (8) BIT OF A LEGEND N rated it kindly on the front end last week but now he's banished to the eight hole; how does he get involved?

Race 9

(7) WIND OF THE NORTH raced well in his two local starts but it appeared he could have had a touch more to offer; I'm giving him one more chance. (6) LUMINOSITY should be forwardly placed off the gate from this spot. (4) TORNADO TIM seems capable and will be a late threat with a live trip.

Race 10

(2) WINDS OF CHANGE gets needed class relief and the Takter trainee should take care of business in the finale. (5) CAVIART LUCA gets tested for class but has been razor-sharp since moving to the Burke barn. (1) MOONLITEONTHEBEACH beat one notch lesser and can threaten here with a stalking trip.
