MEET STATS: 57 - 142 / $257.00   BEST BETS: 7 - 12 / $23.20


Spot Play: SURFACE TENSION (Race 7)


(2) E R ELLIE has been getting away slowly in bulky fields while racing up in class. Forte trainee drops down and draws well this morning; expect an aggressive steer. (5) SEVRUGA will be heading to the front as usual and should take them a long way. (3) MADEWELL HANOVER was in an impossible spot a week ago; don’t ignore him at a price. (7) CRAZY ABOUT PAT moves down the condition ladder for the second straight week; another contender.

Race 2

(8) LUMINOSITY proved vulnerable when handed a tough trip last time. He’s stuck in post 8 again but still deserves the call, hopefully at a price closer to 2-1. (5) BOFFIN steps up this week but isn’t out of his element in this class. (6) DOT DOT DOT DASH upset in the Open ranks with his third straight win. Don’t be shocked if he rolls again at another good price.

Race 3

There are lots of options in this race and (2) ABC MUSCLES BOY leads the way for me. Allard student was given the cold shoulder leaving from post eight last time and now draws inside with Sears signed on to drive. (4) CAN DO drops back down and was a solid second against this type last time. (1) ZOEY DE VIE picked up some confidence down in class and is clearly sharp enough to go back to back. (3) THERAPUTIC has missed some time but remains dangerous.

Race 4

(1) BRANDOS MUSCLE MAN takes two steps down the condition ladder and draws inside for a top barn. He looks like the obvious play at 4-5 or so. (3) EXPRESSIVE ACTION got more aggressive last time with the inside post and looks like the main danger. (10) SIM BROWN is a consistent performer that should hit the exotics. (2) FOR YOU ALMOSTFREE has been awful of late but drops down. I’m inclined to toss him but understand if you don’t.

Race 5

There really are no obvious throw-outs in this field. (3) EXTRACURRICULAR got a perfect trip and blew them away in the stretch when dropped in for this tag last time. I’ll give him the edge again. (10) KASCARA ROSA is back at Yonkers at a reduced level. Don’t be shocked if she wins at a nice price. (5) PROUD MOMENT arrives for Oakes off a big win but is 0 for 14 here the last three years. (1) PASADENA STAR drops back down to the level of his last win.

Race 6

(4) TACS DELIGHT has been sharp for some time now and looks like the clear one to beat. (6) NF HAPPENSTANCE ships in sharp and should leave for position in this spot. (10) ULTIMATE WARRIOR raced well in his first start for this barn. (9) SHE WORE RED has some ability but faces elders and drew in the second tier.

Race 7

(1) SURFACE TENSION didn’t pay immediate dividends for new connections but the trip wasn’t exactly clean. I’m expecting a much better finish today. (10) SCOTTISH CROSS drops down but wasn’t exactly loaded with trot last time. I’m not sure he is as obvious a play as the morning line suggests. (2) FOREVER AS draws well this week and is capable. (6) LIMITLESS picks up a top driver.

Race 8

(3) SIX GUN should fire off the gate as he squeezes under the condition limits allowing him to exit the claiming ranks; down the road try. (1) CLINT WESTWOOD should sit close to the leader and have every shot at nailing him late. (5) IDEAL WILLIE moves inside a couple of spots and could be a threat with the right trip.

Race 9

(3) FAT MANS ALLEY drops out of claimers and gets Bartlett in the bike. I have to think he be sent to the front today. (5) CITY HALL should be very comfortable at this level; must use. (2) SOHO JACKMAN A steps down a level and has Sears.

Race 10

(2) FOOL ME ONCE reunites with Zeron, who was in the bike the last time this guy won a race. He should flash early speed and stay close to the speedy (1) STEVENSVILLE from the pylons. (5) ALLSTAR PARTNER responded to the change to Sears in the sulky.

Race 11

(5) DONAU takes a significant drop in class and should be able to wear this field down. (3) DUEL IN THE SUN should head to the front and give an honest effort. (8) MOONLITEONTHEBEACH has enough early speed to get involved despite the outside draw.

Race 12

(4) BULLET BOB is down in class and should be handled with extra aggression. (2) CAROLS COMET exits the claiming ranks and enters a comfortable condition. (1) REGULUS N will be hustled away to protect position and could trip-out.
