Race 2

(3) ACHILLES BLUE CHIP has really impressed up at Saratoga since joining the Beckwith barn; he should get the jump on these early. (1) ALFREDSSON is always a big threat at this level.  (5) WELLTHEREYOUGO tired after a two move effort just 5 days ago.

Race 3

(3) IRAS BIG GUY manages to pick up checks week in and week out at this level; he's got as good a shot as any in here. (2) CLEM has been a good earner at this level for some time now.  (1) MUSCLE BEACHBOY faces tougher but has been solid in his last two.

Race 4

(1) P H JACKPOT hasn't done much of late but this veteran finally draws the rail and would be no surprise here.  (2) LIGHTNING STRIKE has just one win on the season but he's been live recently.  (6) LYONS JOSEPHJNR is stuck outside again but must be respected from these connections.

Race 5

(4) WAYNE THE LEFTY drops back down to the level of his last win; classy gelding can reel in the speed late. (5) I LIKE DREAMIN also drops and could be a closing threat. (1) FASTLANELUKE steps way up off a second consecutive score and he'll have to be caught.

Race 6

(3) SAPPHIRE CITY was a good second last out to Sweet Lou; he lands inside with this open draw and he should be forwardly placed in this competitive field.  (4) ESCAPE THE NEWS returns locally and just missed versus these two back.  (6) P H SUPERCAM has come a long way since his claiming days and he's in career form.

Race 7

(3) BLATANTLY BEST has done nothing wrong since arriving locally and only needs a live trip to take this.  (6) BJ'S GUY drops a notch in class and should be more involved.  (1) SAFE HARBOR has missed almost a month but he was facing some tough ones at Pocono.

Race 8

(8) SPECIAL FORCES is assigned the tough post 8 but this Burke trainee looks for three in a row and may have a real future. (4) UNCLE GOODFELLOW has not disgraced himself in recent efforts down at Philly. (2) LUMBERJACK WILLIE has really impressed since shipping from Hoosier and he lands a nice inside post.

Race 9

(3) DANCIN YANKEE gets much needed class and post relief; five-year old has plenty of back class. (1) DINNER GUEST ships back locally and is a player from the rail.  (4) I FOUGHT DALAW also gets class relief but has been rather flat recently.

Race 10

(4) MONEY TWITCH A had no real chance yet rallied for a small share in his debut for the Rohr barn; veteran should be more involved tonight.  (1) SOMETHING FOR DOC raced better in his debut for Drolet but he's still got a long way to go to recoup his purchase price.  (5) TIDEWATER TEDDY is amazingly still winless on the season in 40 starts; at least Brennan is back in the bike tonight.

Race 11

(5) FOUR CORNERS is usually at the mercy of the post draw but he's proven to be competitive with this type and there are no standouts in here. (3) FOREST VIC A gets a sentimental vote here as this may well be his final career start; oldtimer is still competitive. (1) ART FOR ARTS SAKE was a winner at this level five back from this inside post.

Race 12

(3) ROLLWITHITHARRY takes a needed drop in class tonight and is capable of responding.  (2) NOB HILL HIGH has found his stride of late and this hard-knocking veteran should land a big share from this spot.  (1) TAKE IT BACK TERRY draws best, hails from Burke, has Brennan driving.
