Race 1

(1) BLATANTLY BEST has raced well locally for the most part and he returns in a perfect spot tonight. (2) RUSSLEY RASCAL N was driven like he was best last week but he was nailed by a sharp rival; second best. (3) SALEVSTER STALLION failed with no excuse last out; he fits with these however and the veteran can hit the ticket.

Race 2

(1) PAPA RAY didn't fire in his local return but from the rail I'm gonna give him another chance. (5) LIGHTNING RAIDER N was a winner at this level two back with Brennan in the bike; logical favorite. (8) ROADWAY fits with these and could find a way to spice up the exotics.

Race 3

Last week (1) WAYNE THE LEFTY got away third then came first over which sealed his fate; he can rebound with a smoother trip. (3) N J LAW closed very willingly last out. (2) VERY UPSET RICHIE draws well, has Pierce driving; veteran deserves a long look.

Race 4

(4) MORTAL ZIN didn't race as badly as his line suggested last week. He may have gone forward with some clearance. Tonight Pierce drives. (2) THE POKESTER drops and gets needed post relief; obvious threat. (1) CONNERY BLUE CHIP has some speed and draws best.

Race 5

(2) MONTREAL PHIL tightened last week, now drops and lands inside. No excuses accepted. (5) OFFICERNAGENTLEMAN was Pierce's choice and he ran well three back at this level. (1) APPLEY EVER AFTER will be close up throughout but he'll need to show more at crunch time versus this better group.

Race 6

(2) LUMBERJACK WILLIE really hasn't put in a bad effort since arriving at Yonkers; gelding gets another decent inside draw and he can trip out from this spot. (4) P H SUPERCAM has been on a long extended form spree; reformed claimer may be the one to beat here. (1) ATTA BOY DAN bumps up to this level for Burke, has speed and draws best.

Race 7

(8) DELCO ROCKNROLL got going too late last week and did finish with plenty of pace; he needs some big-time luck from this spot but the price should be right. (1) OUREA NOURRIR was dead-game in defeat in his local return; Pierce drives again. (5) EIGHTEEN gets a free ride in this class off a game front-end score.

Race 8

(4) STONEHOUSE ADAM is winless in his first two seasonal tries but the Burke trainee certainly hasn't disgraced himself; he's capable from this spot. (1) NOB HILL HIGH is back inside; expect a top effort from this classy veteran. (2) A J CORBELLI was a huge uncovered winner last out with Pierce in the bike.

Race 9

(5) ELECTRIC OUI has started three times since the layoff and has gotten better in each race. Tonight he drops in class and he can show off some of that speed he has. (1) SEEK THE DRAGON ships from The Meadowlands, draws best and has Pierce driving. (4) BULLET BOB also drops and keeps Sears.

Race 10

(2) ROCKIN WIZARD was shuffled and had no chance upon arrival; chance for redemption tonight. (1) RELENTLESS G gets much-needed post relief. (6) NEPTUNE has been in good form and he can hit the ticket with a live trip.

Race 11

(1) MCERLEAN bumped to this level, took all the money but didn't fire; he's capable of rebounding from this spot at a much better price. (3) DINNER GUEST gets post relief and picks up Pierce. (5) ORILLIA JOE rallied nicely at this level two back.

Race 12

(2) RESCUE PLAN has been razor-sharp winning from the pocket in his last two; he faces better tonight but he might be good enough to complete the hat trick. (3) SAFE HARBOR has been facing some tough ones with limited success; he should appreciate the class and post relief. (1) ESPEN DE VIE also drops, has speed and the best draw.
