MEET STATS: 69 - 214 / $338.60  BEST BETS: 10 - 18 / $35.40


Spot Play: ELECTRIC OUI (11th)


Race 1

(12) NOT AFRAID took a well deserved week off but the reigning King of the Open should still maintain his edge and he's sharp enough to overcome this tough starting assignment. (8) DW'S NY YANK returns locally for Burke off a no-excuse effort at The Meadowlands. (10) BACKSTREET HANOVER was tons the best last week and now he bumps back to the Open level.

Race 2

(11) TWEET ME looked so good disposing of lesser last week that he deserves the call to repeat. (12) THERAPUTIC gets some needed class relief but he hasn't looked all that sharp in his two 2015 efforts and he's stuck in a tough early spot. (6) WARRAWEE PREFERRED could be a closing threat if he minds his manners.

Race 3

(3) COMMISSIONER DALEY showed serious signs of life last week after a long drought and he can certainly build off that effort. (1) BASTILLE threw in a clunker last out; veteran is better than that. (9) HOORAYFORVACATION raced well last out at this level and he looks like a good fit here.

Race 4

(3) WINWOOD SCOUT was claimed by sharp connections last week and this trotter is in career form; Buter's choice can take another. (6) FORTUNISTA hasn't been all that good recently but she drops and is capable of better. (10) SCOTTISH CROSS has good speed and fits nicely with these but she's got to overcome the second tier.

Race 5

(5) ABC CROWN ME QUEEN has been super in her three local 2015 races and she'll likely be the best price of the logical contenders; worth a look. (4) LUCKY COLBY was making a nice move last week when he broke. (1) PROUD MOMENT is a bit erratic but he does drop in class and he hails from live connections.

Race 6

(6) ORANGE BIGI hasn't been terrible in recent outings and she gets some class relief today; having her nose on the gate may be beneficial. (9) BLOOMFIELDCANTIFLY raced well in defeat in her debut for DiDomenico. (4) BERKSHIRE showed good speed last week and didn't tire that badly at 112-1.

Race 7

(2) SUN OF A VICTORY couldn't make the front last week then never really fired when sent to the rim; Sears may be able to control the action from this spot. (5) MEADOWVIEW ARNY has been right there in his three local starts; obvious contender. (3) AQUANILLA got away poorly from the second tier last week and never got close; she's better than that.

Race 8

(6) SEMALU EXPRESS was outgamed by the trip sitter after cutting the mile last out; he's sharp and has plenty of back class. (5) SPEEDACIOUS was too far back and got going too late last week. (8) TAILLIGHT HANOVER drops and has the gate speed to overcome the poor post draw. Will Brian Sears utilize it? Who knows...

Race 9

(5) FOOL TO CRY is in to go Friday as of this writing so it's hard to gauge what's going to happen but he does enter a live barn via claim and must be respected. (1) WHOLLY LOUY has class and the best draw. (2) ROCKAVELLIAN enters a new barn while sharp and he draws well again.

Race 10

(1) ASTOR was second best to a sharp rival in his local return and Bartlett should get the jump on these from this spot. (3) MYSTICAL VALENTINE returns to the Brainard barn looking for two in a row. (7) FASTLANELUKE was facing better when last seen here.

Race 11

(7) ELECTRIC OUI has finished with sneaky good pace in his two starts off the long layoff and we've seen him dominate much better than these in the past. (2) WINYARD HANOVER ships from Northfield and clearly he's got ability. (3) MARINER SEELSTER returns locally and draws well enough to contend.

Race 12

(6) GALLANT SEESLTER wasn't all that bad last out at a big price and I'll give him another look to pull off the upset versus this suspect field. (2) HACIENDA draws well again and will be forwardly placed. (3) ROCKS N BONDS ships in off two solid wins at Freehold.
