MEET STATS: 205 - 588 / $1077.40  BEST BETS: 35 - 48 / $113.30

Best Bet: CARTOON DADDY (5th)

Spot Play: FLEM N EM N (12th)


Race 1

(7) PAMS LEGACY has raced well in all recent efforts. The outside post presents a bit of a problem tonight but the price should be right to take a shot with him. (1) ACHILLES BLUE CHIP returns locally with plenty of speed and the best draw; threat to go all the way. (3) WHOLLY LOUY returns to claimers looking for three straight.

Race 2

(1) TRACK MASTER D broke leaving from the eight hole last out; toss that effort and he should be right there with these. (8) ITS A GOOD THING triple-jumps in class off a pocket-rocket score and he's been competitive with these in the past. (3) ROCK TO GLORY gets post relief and he will be more involved from this spot.

Race 3

(1) BAKIN ON THE BEACH returns locally off some solid efforts versus lesser out of town and he's beaten better than these in the past. (4) OLDE TIME HOCKEY should be flashing early speed from this spot. (2) HARD TO MACH rallied well for a small share from a tough spot in his debut for new connections and he gets serious post relief tonight.

Race 4

(2) ROCK N ROLL WORLD is a nicely bred colt who arrives off an even effort at The Meadowlands and he looms the one to beat here. (4) MYSTICAL PACER put in a good effort over the half in NYSS action at Buffalo. (6) IN THE ARSENAL tired after an aggressive try in his career debut at The Big M.

Race 5

(3) CARTOON DADDY is fresh off a big win in a NYSS test and the Burke trainee looks like he should have little problems with these. (1) LONE SURVIVOR raced well in defeat at The Meadowlands. (5) SONOFA SIZZLE qualified in stellar fashion at Vernon for veteran horseman Dan Daley.

Race 6

(5) PANCETTA exploded home from the clouds last week and got closer than he ever should have; Sabot trainee is in raging form and can take this with any sort of trip. (4) THE REAL ONE hikes to the Open level after taking three straight upon arrival for Lachance. (1) SAPPHIRE CITY is assigned the rail and has the early speed to take full advantage.

Race 7

(3) CASIMIR JITTERBUG drops back to the level where he was a wire-to-wire winner two back; logical. (1) CHINA GRILL was also a winner when last seen with these. (2) VERDAD hails from Burke and has hit the ticket in five-of-six.

Race 8

(1) SIR ZIGGY'S Z TAM has picked up minor shares in his last two versus Open types and now he gets a very generous post position assignment; Lachance should be able to work out a winning trip from this spot. (3) LIFE UP FRONT has been rock-solid in all recent efforts. (6) GREAT VINTAGE is as gutsy as they come and Stalbaum may be firing with him tonight.

Race 9

(1) SANTANNA ONE almost made it the distance last out in a tough beat; chance for redemption tonight. (7) MONTREAL PHIL drops back to a level where he jogged four back. (5) DALLENBACH HANOVER is always a speed threat.

Race 10

(1) BITTERSWEET CHAMP has been pretty good in all of his starts for Gareth Dowse. If he can stay close enough to the pace he can roll by late. (3) TWIN B FAMOUS returns locally and gets Brennan in the bike. (2) VILLAGE BEAT has plenty of back class to call upon.

Race 11

(3) THIRTY TWO RED finally broke through with a solid front-end score and he can easily repeat versus these. (1) RONNY BUGATTI has loads of speed and he lands back inside. (2) FAMEOUS WESTERN gets class and post relief after going nowhere in his last two races.

Race 12

(2) FLEM N EM N was nailed on the wire last week after a solid, aggressive effort; Fraley trainee can get it done tonight. (4) ROLLWITHITHARRY had no chance of reaching last week; this is obviously a better spot. (3) K SLATER bumps up in class but is back in good form.
