BEST BETS: 55 - 99 / $186.30


Spot Play: ZOOMING (2nd)

Race 1

(2) CENTURION ATM didn't race that badly last week getting shuffled as the lead changed; MacDonald drives today and he deserves another chance. (7) HEMI SEELSTER was hard to handle and very antsy in the pocket before ultimately breaking in last; his prior two efforts on the front end were super. (8) WIND OF THE NORTH returns locally after being right there in the TVG Final at The Meadowlands but he's got to overcome the far outside post.

Race 2

(5) ZOOMING has been in good form for quite some time now and he should be in line for a perfect trip from this spot. (3) CHARMED LIFE has plenty of class to her and she ships in off a sharp score upstate. (1) LILY'S SWAN POND was buried in that tough Open Handicap last week; he was a good second at this level four back.

Race 3

(3) XTATIC HANOVER was better last week which could be signaling a return to form; he may offer the best value of the contenders. (1) ZORGWIJK NOVA rallied nicely from off the pace after that second-tier start last out; mare will likely be controlling the action today. (4) PIERCEWAVE HANOVER should be in line for a better trip today.

Race 4

(3) SOUL TRAIN had been looking much better prior to last week's tiring front-end effort. Trotter can strike from off the pace today. (2) WING FLASH flattened late in a fast race last out; mare was solid the week before. (6) SIM BROWN blew away lesser in his second start for new connections and he may be sharp enough to handle this type.

Race 5

(1) KADABRASNEWRECRUIT was second last week and stays at the same level debuting for new connections off the claim; logical. (4) LO RAIL CROSSING missed a week but had been sharp in prior starts. (5) ROCKET MASTER gets a driver upgrade exiting the amateur ranks.

Race 6

(8) DARK ROAST arrives from The Meadows making her debut for the Allard barn and she gets Sears in the bike; trotter could fit well in here and is worth a look despite the poor post. (6) WHATNBLAZES hasn't won in two years but he fits at the basement level and he gets a professional driver back in the bike. (7) CI'S BUCKEYE gets Bartett back in the bike today but he stopped badly last week; use caution.

Race 7

(9) DREAMSTEELER was very game in victory for the second straight week; why not again? (4) WELL CONNECTED KID was outbattled by the top choice; big threat again from these connections. (2) MASSIVE TALENT lands the best post and should be a player in here, but he also should have won last week.

Race 8

(3) LETTUCERIPRITA A is up in class off a big effort and he keeps Bartlett over a good Bamond trainee; stick with him. (5) SNAP TO IT A returns locally and he's had success with these in the past. (1) REASONABLE FORCE had pace once clear last out and he draws best.

Race 9

(2) CASIMIR JITTERBUG gets needed post relief and the veteran is more than capable with these. (1) SPORTS BETTOR exits claimers off a sharp pocket-sitting win and he draws best again. (3) LORD OF MISRULE gets a better starting spot and was Dube's choice.

Race 10

(1) POLAK A gets away from the big boys, draws best and gets Stratton back in the bike; they teamed up for a big upset win three back. (2) BLOOD BROTHER came too late last week; he should be in a better spot today. (4) DOWNTHEHIGHWY may have needed his first local start last week and the Burke trainee can be better today.

Race 11

(4) SOMEWHERE IN L A returns locally now in the Banca barn and he can take these a long way on the front end. (3) TEXICAN N gets post relief and certainly can go with these. (2) LETTUCEROCKTHEM A is a bit unpredictable but the talent is there.
