BEST BETS: 7 - 18 / $26.00

Best Bet: LET’S DRINK ON IT (3rd)

Spot Play: ROLAND N ROCK (6th)

Race 1

(8) GOLD ROCKS has been in good form out of town, now ships in and joins the 'powerhouse' Milici barn; post eight may be no problem if this one is revved up. (5) MC RUSTY usually races as well as he draws but this one can kick home nicely off a good setup. (2) LUNAR TIDE N is one of a handful of recent Vallee imports who could show more tonight with the improved post.

Race 2

(1) FIERY LUSTRE N is up in class off a game win, draws best in a questionable field and keeps Bartlett. (3) SHARK FANTASY debuts for Banca off the claim, always a potent angle. (5) DEMOCRACY N hasn't done much off the 40K claim but the veteran does find a softer spot tonight.

Race 3

(1) LET'S DRINK ON IT went a big effort last week in a solid acclimating mile and he looks tons the best from this spot. (3) ONE THROUGH TEN should be aggressively handled early looking for a pocket ride. (2) HEEZ ORL BLACK N is tough to endorse on top but he'll be close up throughout.

Race 4

(2) SANTANNA ONE gets much-needed post relief tonight, is a proven entity at this level and was Sears' choice. (1) CAUTION SIGNS lands back inside where he was a winner two back. (4) RURAL ART has been very sharp in his last three and is impossible to ignore.

Race 5

(3) KIWI IDEAL N was very good in his seasonal debut two back, then couldn't sustain a two-move eight-hole effort last week; he can get it done with tonight's post relief. (1) MADIBA MAGIC N drops, draws best and beat better four back. (5) THIRTY TWO RED needed last week's race and could have more to offer.

Race 6

(4) ROLAND N ROCK qualified superbly with Lasix added, beating Foiled Again and Mach It So in the process; four-year-old can go down the road tonight. (3) BIT OF A LEGEND has looked super since arriving in the U.S. and he'll be much closer to the pace tonight; big threat. (5) BAD BOY MATT didn't fire in his two local Open efforts but last week's win versus lesser was very good.

Race 7

(2) CYCLONE KIWI N blasted down the road last week from an outside post but couldn't hold off two sharp rivals late; he's back with Bartlett tonight and from an inside post. (4) BULLET BOB was very good two back, toured the track last week. He can be more involved tonight. (1) JENERAL PATTON is up in class looking for two straight and he draws best again.

Race 8

(6) DYNAMIC YOUTH likely needed last week's start at The Meadowlands; Open winner from last season should be ready to show more tonight. (1) CHANCELLORCULLEN N blew away a weaker field last week, draws best and adds Dube. (7) ROCK ICON jogged at this level two back before coming up empty in last week's Open.

Race 9

(5) BETTOREVER went evenly last week while having no real chance in his first start since last September; Bamond trainee showed big ability as a four-year-old and could be ready to tackle these tonight. (1) FORTY FIVE RED drops in class and can carry his speed a long way from this spot. (3) REGGIANO doesn't look all that great but he can save ground and spice up the exotics.

Race 10

(3) ARQUE HANOVER returns locally for his 2016 debut and he had his moments here last season in some stakes events; note he's now in the Milici barn, who seems to have finally found the key to success, clicking at almost 30%. (6) MATTAMERICAN ships from The Meadows and is another barn-change bonanza (Andrew Harris) that must be respected. (1) REUBEN BROGDEN N is up in class off a solid score and he draws best.

Race 11

(1) A BETTOR HAT was okay two back from an inside post versus better and had a tough time getting involved last week. It can be all systems go tonight from the rail. (3) LIFE UP FRONT is a legit high-conditioned veteran who clearly needed last week's start; he should be tighter tonight. (7) ALBERTO CONTADOR N is in the same boat as Life Up Front but the outside post may seal his fate; use underneath.

Race 12

(1) MACHS BEACH BOY banked almost $250K last year and that wasn't by accident. After a poor start to his 2016 campaign the veteran looked better last week and from this spot Lachance should be prominent throughout. (8) SAPPHIRE CITY ripped out from the pocket and beat a nice rival last out. Millionaire gets to stay at the same level but now he's stuck in post eight; it's a total guess as to his intentions tonight. (2) SAM'S ESCAPE just missed last week and lands in a similar spot.
