Race 1

(6) OUREA NOURRIR got lost early starting from the rail in that added-distance race last out; Pierce can pick up live cover from this spot. (4) GRAB YOUR KEYS was a winner when last at this level. (2) SIR RICHARD Z TAM ships in from The Meadowlands for Lachance and he draws well.

Race 2

(3) UNCLE GOODFELLOW seems to have been knocking on the door for some time now; Brennan gets the assignment tonight and he will probably be aggressive early. (2) VALENTINO returns locally and the speedy veteran looks like he still fits with these. (1) MACHAPELO bumps up in class but draws best and picks up Sears.

Race 3

(2) ELECTRIC OUI raced well in his fourth start back from vacation and this looks like his spot tonight. (6) WESTERN DAKOTA is reunited with Stratton, and they teamed up to beat lesser two back. (1) THESEYESRCRYING was hung to dry last week but he should get a smoother trip tonight.

Race 4

(1) POWER OF TARA N gets much-needed post relief, Pierce sticks and I would assume he'll be the favorite. (4) MAY DAY can leave the gate and potentially clear the lead, which makes him an obvious threat. (2) FOUR CORNERS also moves back inside and he's proven at this level.

Race 5

(3) SILENT SWING has been super in his last two local appearances and the double-millionaire looks well-spotted here. (5) KEEP GOING has really done little wrong since joining the DiDomenico barn. (1) DIAMOND COWBOY is a bit erratic but he does have talent.

Race 6

(6) CLEAR VISION proved in those Meadowlands qualifiers that he's ready for action; Burke will likely have this one pointed towards the Levy. (2) AMERICAN RAGE has raced well in his last few and he gets a cozy post assignment. (5) PAN FROM NANTUCKET has a win and a second in the Open coming right off the bench.

Race 7

(1) GLASS PRINCE has stormed home in his last two to pull off upsets and he may be a halfway decent price again tonight. (5) SPECIAL FORCES was going nowhere last week from the eight hole in the Open; Burke trainee will be more involved tonight. (6) DREAM OUT LOUD N could be a closing threat with a perfect trip.

Race 8

(3) ROCK TO GLORY was put on the front end last week and gave way under pressure; I'm going to give the Godinez trainee another try. (5) SPARKY MARK has loads of class and qualified effectively; Pierce drives. (1) FASTLANELUKE woke up last week with an improved effort.

Race 9

(4) DALLENBACH HANOVER faces some tough ones inside of him but he may be sent to the lead and rate kindly enough to hold off the challenges. (1) SECOND WIND N is up in class off an easy win and he draws best again. (2) CHINA GRILL went a big effort in defeat right off the bench.

Race 10

(5) PONTIAC LUCK held pretty well last week in a needed race after missing time; Burke-trained veteran can progress further tonight. (4) BAKIN ON THE BEACH followed up his no-excuse failure two back with a much improved effort last week; Harder trainee may be the one to beat. (1) MACHS BEACH BOY has loads of talent and must be feared from this spot.

Race 11

(5) MAJOR BELLE has been solid since joining the Burke barn; he steps up again but faces no standouts. (2) PANONGAHELA moves back inside and looms a threat with a live trip. (6) MONTANA PABLO A has really put it all together in his last few races.

Race 12

(3) SOMETHING FOR DOC failed yet again on the front end last week, yet somehow I keep getting drawn to him. I'm using the first-time Brennan angle tonight. (1) DRUMFIRE A returns off a decent stint at The Meadows. (2) ROCNROLWILNEVERDIE made some decent money as a three-year-old but I don't know if he's ready to tackle more seasoned foes.
