Best Bet: ALWAYS A GOOD TIME (2nd)

Spot Play: KRONWALL (7th)

MEET STATS: 477 - 1354 / $2,586.30

BEST BETS: 64 - 115 / $211.00


Race 1

(9) LUCK O THE IRISH went a pretty big trip in defeat last week, holding for a board spot. Rob Harmon trainee should be able to get away in good order from this second-tier spot. (4) DOG GONE LUCKY flashed good early speed last out in what ended up being a closers race; threat. (10) CRAZY ABOUT PAT has raced better since moving to the Garcia-Herrera barn, despite last week's break. He was a winner at Yonkers three back.

Race 2

(3) ALWAYS A GOOD TIME shipped in last week, joined the DiDomenico barn and was an easy two-move winner; he can easily repeat facing similar. (1) GRUDEN added Lasix for his debut in the Allard barn and won over at Pocono; worthy of consideration from this spot. (4) TYCOON SEELSTER jogged versus lesser up at Saratoga for his new connections and ships south to race for bigger money.

Race 3

(4) MADHATTER BLUECHIP qualified nicely up at Monticello and he does have experience at this oval and at this added-distance; worth a play in this wide-open event. (5) P L HERCULES recently added trotting hobbles for Burke and has behaved himself. (10) BINGO QUEEN has suddenly reinvented herself as a speedster though she fell back into old habits last week and broke stride; she fits with this type and could land a share if she behaves herself starting from the second tier.

Race 4

(1) RUN AND TELL PAP has been a bit erratic recently but he meets a pretty soft field here and is capable of taking these the distance. (5) DELCREST MASSY gets needed class relief in the hopes of awakening. (9) CRAZYCAT blew away cheaper and can land a share here if he behaves himself.

Race 5

(4) PINGALING broke leaving from the eight hole last week but a return to his effort two back would be good enough to beat these. (2) ANNAPOLIS HALL was pretty good last week rallying for a board spot. (3) HOLIDAY PROMISE has flashed good speed in her last two efforts from outside posts.

Race 6

(7) YOOOUKILIS stays at the same level off the claim and he can beat these if he maintains his good current form. (10) HOT SUMMER KNIGHT returns locally and was facing better recently at Pocono. (5) I C CAVIAR is a fixture at this $12,500 claiming level; threat.

Race 7

(4) KRONWALL moves into the Rene Allard barn in the hopes of regaining his form and certainly doesn't meet any standouts; to the front? (2) TEASIN N PLEASIN has some talent but just can't seem to find the right spot; filly adds Lasix and picks up Bartlett. (3) STAYIN STRONG fired from the eight hole last week; assume he'll be near the front again with this improved post.

Race 8

It took some time but it seems (6) SMALLTOWNTHROWDOWN has finally hit his top gear and the Allard trainee seems sharp enough to keep the streak intact despite facing tougher. (4) DW'S NY YANK wasn't all that great last week but Brennan may get more aggressive today. (2) MELADY'S MONET is two-for-two beating lesser off the bench and the classy veteran gets a nice post assignment here.

Race 9

(1) MONEY MAVEN lands the best post in this questionable field and should look to take these wire-to-wire. (5) MOSTINTERESTINGMAN has the talent and a driver who likes to take chances early. (3) CENTURION ATM either comes up really good or really bad; your call.

Race 10

(4) ALL THIS COMMOTION ships from the Midwest to join the DiDomenico barn, an angle that's worked in the past. Worth considering if near his morning line. (3) MUZZY'S MUSCLES is certainly the most consistent in here. (2) SWEETASCANTAB qualified effectively enough and draws well.

Race 11

(6) EVELYN was last seen missing a nose in the Matron at Dover; she figures to handle these. (2) STICK WITH ME KID debuts for Banca via sale purchase and he had a decent season on the NYSS circuit. (1) MIGHTY SURF had trot between breaks last week.
