Race 1

(5) ROCKIN ROBERT drops down and finds a pretty soft NW12000 race here; he can take all with any racing luck. (4) LITTLE PRINCE has had his moments here in the past, especially with Brennan driving. (7) IWANNARACE HANOVER also drops and can be a serious closing threat.

Race 2

(1) GLASS PRINCE lands back inside, is rock-solid at this level and is the deserving favorite here. (2) TALKTOMECOURAGE N is back in claimers off an easy score. (6) CHINA KING showed a solid off-the-pace rally last out and he can build off that effort.

Race 3

(3) IM FULLA LUCK N arrives locally and joins the Cassar barn; worth a shot. (4) FOUR CORNERS drops in class and is capable of better. (2) THESEYESRCRYING followed up his awesome effort here with a solid race at Tioga; he faces tougher tonight but he's sharp.

Race 4

(4) SEA VENTURE is facing tougher off that confidence-building victory five days ago; gelding has some class to him and it wouldn't shock me if he strung some good efforts together. (1) LUCKY MAN has speed at the rail; good combo. (3) ROADWAY has fallen on hard times recently.

Race 5

(6) GIDDY UP DELIGHT put forth a very game effort last week at 20-1. He's shown renewed energy since the recent barn change and picking up Sears doesn't hurt. (1) TIDEWATER TEDDY is logical from this spot but note he's winless on the season. (5) ELECTRIC SHOOTER has beaten better than these in the past.

Race 6

(4) STATESMAN N is a very highly regarded Down-Under shipper who's quickly proven he's got serious ability; he lands a perfect midpack post in his Yonkers debut. (3) TOBAGO CAYS is back in the Open ranks off those two speedy blowout victories. (1) NOB HILL HIGH is assigned the rail tonight and he should be heard from.

Race 7

(3) SAPPHIRE CITY beat up on lesser last week and the track-record holder can come right back for another. (6) FORIEGN OFFICER has been sharp in all recent efforts. (1) SAINT WILLIAM A should be able to land a share from this spot.

Race 8

(7) WHACKAMOLE HANOVER has been sharp in all recent efforts; expect him to be forwardly placed again tonight. (4) RU READY TO ROCK gets needed post relief and the Godinez barn has been live. (3) ELECTROFIRE won a leg of the Levy five back; he's a bit erratic, however.

Race 9

(1) ELECTRIC OUI is simply a war horse that gives a good effort every week; tonight from the rail he can get the job done. (3) AUSSIE REACTOR A gets some post relief and he looks like he'll be live here. (7) GREAT VINTAGE gets class relief but he's stuck outside.

Race 10

(3) LIGHTNING RAIDER N was pretty game for second last week; Team Vallee veteran can end his seasonal skid tonight with any racing luck. (4) LIFE UP FRONT drops in class and should be more involved. (1) COLOSSAL looks fast enough to secure a spot from the rail.

Race 11

(8) JERRY'S BROWN GOLD paced an eye-opening back half en route to his jogola score last week; the bump in class and the eight hole add some intrigue tonight, but I think he's sharp enough to get it done. (5) LISTOWEL has very quietly become a solid overnight horse; Sears drives tonight. (1) NOBLE FALCON gets much-needed post relief and the millionaire pacer is a prime contender.

Race 12

(3) HI HO STEVERINO has had success in the past with Stratton driving; he looks like he's got as good a shot as any in here. (4) STONEHOUSE ADAM drops in class but he hasn't been overly impressive of late. (1) FRIDAYNIGHTFLIGHT finally showed some signs of life last week at Philly.
