Race 2

(5) IDEAL CHAMP got hung the mile last week and understandably tired; there doesn't seem to be a ton of early speed inside of him tonight and Kakaley should consider sending him to the front. (2) FASTLANELUKE draws better and is reunited with Sears. (1) FORTY FIVE RED makes his second start for new connections and he lands in a cozy inside spot.

Race 3

(2) WARRAWEE NEEDY didn't embarrass himself last week versus the best horses in the land and he really should be able to handle these. (3) DELCO ROCKNROLL gets a free ride at this level after winning last week and he was Bartlett's pick over my top choice. (4) SKY IS THE LIMIT was game in defeat last out, getting collared by a classy rival.

Race 4

(3) BULLET BOB drops back to the level where he went wire-to-wire five back; to the front. (6) FOREVER JUST was second best upon dropping to this level last week. (1) TWIN B FAMOUS has speed and the best post; stamina appears to be the issue.

Race 5

(4) BJ'S GUY gets another crack at this level off his solid front-end score; he can certainly repeat tonight. (1) MICHAEL'S POWER drops back to the level where he took two straight; he's the one to beat tonight as the likely favorite. (3) HOLDINGALLTHECARDS was in too deep in last week's Open; DiDomenico trainee can go with these.

Race 6

(6) BEACH MEMORIES came up a touch shy last week in his local debut for Burke; Brennan can have him forwardly placed tonight. (3) SAPPHIRE CITY is back in the Open looking for four in a row. (7) MCERLEAN is sharp as a tack but he may have trouble reaching from this outside post.

Race 7

(3) HILLBILLY HANOVER was outgamed late while going first-over upon dropping to this level; Burke's veteran will get the job done tonight. (1) TOWNSLIGHT HANOVER raced decently in his local return and he looms large from this cozy inside post. (2) THIRTY TWO RED also lands an improved post and he should be able to land a share.

Race 8

(4) JONES BEACH lacks the class of others in here but he's been solid since joining the Allard barn and he's got as good a chance as any in this wide-open affair. (5) THE LADIES MAN drops in class and is another Burke trainee that is tough to ignore. (6) EIGHTEEN is back from a brief vacation; why the barn change?

Race 9

(3) TAKE IT BACK TERRY raced well though too far back in his last two local attempts; he returns in a much better spot and should control these. (2) ROCKIN WIZARD had a nice local debut and he can build off that effort. (4) P L FIGHTER had no real excuse last week but his prior efforts were good.

Race 10

(3) STOLEN CAR is not a prolific winner but he's been in decent form and this looks like a pretty live spot. (2) FLEM N EM N has also been going well of late but he's missed a couple of weeks. (4) FOOL ME ONCE has tired on the front end with little excuse in his last two; clearly he can win but it's not easy to endorse him for the top spot.

Race 11

(2) FAT MANS ALLEY should be a little closer to the action tonight and this classy gelding can get the job done. (7) A COOL CARD was a blowout winner last week versus lesser. (4) VERDAD can land a share from this midpack post.

Race 12

(6) KIWI IDEAL N has shown flashes of brilliance recently and Carlson's choice faces nothing special in here. (2) BULLVILLE KYLE flattened late in his last two after closing stoutly in prior efforts; maybe he can show more tonight. (3) SOURCE OF PRIDE should be forwardly placed tonight.
