Race 1

(2) SOUTHWIND TERROR comes in off a couple of eventful efforts but he plunges to the basement today where he was an easy winner four back. (7) ROCKEN CAMNATION would have won easily last week if not for skipping multiple times in the final quarter; big threat. (5) HUNCHIE was second best at a price in his last two local efforts; consider for a share.

Race 2

(2) WARRAWEE ONYX was a solid second last out versus two classes better; top billing. (3) FOR YOU ALMOSTFREE finally woke up with a better effort and that's clearly a good sign. (1) WALLTOCOUSINS gets the best post and may try to go down the road in what looks like strictly a three-horse affair.

Race 3

(6) SWISHNFLICK debuts for the Allard barn off a solid win versus cheaper and this classy mare may be ready for better. (5) BUEN CAMINO brushed and crushed last out; faces better but seems capable of stepping it up. (4) O U SEXY GUY was a nice pocket-sitting winner and can be forwardly placed again in this bulky field.

Race 4

(5) SPRINGBANK SAM N really hasn't done much wrong in all recent efforts and the veteran should be well positioned from this midpack post. (9) RED HOT HERBIE won two back and was second best last out to a tough one; second-tier start may present a bit of a problem. (6) NEWCASTLE goes out for a new driver/trainer combo; consider for a share at what should be a huge price.

Race 5

(6) NOT AFRAID hasn't looked his best so far in 2017 but those weren't the easiest of trips; the Takter-trained ATM machine will start making money soon. (2) BENTLEY SPUR raced well last out and now goes for the Banca barn; Bartlett drives. (9) TESACO DU PONT ships in for Europe and qualified decently; take a look at him.

Race 6

(2) SLUGFEST has traffic issues last time and now gets class relief while picking up Kakaley in the bike; lots to like. (8) SEVRUGA flashed good speed in that qualifier and Holland may be looking to fire out with the veteran. (10) LAUDERDALE has been close up in his last three at The Meadowlands.

Race 7

(7) LO RAIL CROSSING has been on fire recently and was reclaimed by Banca; down the road today. (2) NOBLE WARRAWEE trotted evenly last out and does fit with this type. (6) WESTERN CREDIT hails from a top barn and has raced well in his last few; I don't quite understand the huge morning line here.

Race 8

(5) LEAVE YOUR MARK was aggressively handled early to take control last out but was overtaken and fell apart; I'm giving the Harmon trainee another chance at a better price. (4) O'WOW ships from The Big M and gets a driver upgrade to Brennan. (3) ROCKET MASTER gets some needed class relief.

Race 9

(2) LUCKY PLAYER broke last week while in the midst of a two-move effort; another chance with the post relief. (6) NORTHERN SOIREE was a sharp pocket-sitting winner in last; Kakaley's choice. (1) RED HOT HILL looks for three straight but faces a bit tougher.

Race 10

(8) LO HOLD A MOONBEAN went a big post eight effort last week to be second best at a big price; he's 'blessed' with the outside post again but I'm hopping on board. (3) NIC NAC PATTY MACH goes second start for Clegg, who usually has them geared up for speed; Bartlett drives again. (1) POKERFACE raced well last out and lands another good post; logical.
