BEST BETS: 30 - 97 / $144.40

Best Bet: WESTERN BAYAMA (10th)

Spot Play: MILLWOOD FAITH N (3rd)


Race 1

(5) AMERICAN ALIVE took some of these most of the way on the lead but did not have enough gas in the tank and held second money last time out; all systems go to greet the cameraman for pictures. (4) WRAPPED TO GO came down the center of the track to run down the top pick recently; threat for the repeat. (2) GOTTA BE ME showed good speed but could not get past the top two in her latest; watch out.

Race 2

(5) KIDDIE MCCARDLE went evenly in her last trip to the post but if she reverts back to her September 15 start the rest will have to settle for minor awards. (2) MACY BLUE CHIP N gets post relief and Bartlett has the assignment; main danger. (1) ARABELLA J has good early zip and should be a factor from the fence.

Race 3

(4) MILLWOOD FAITH N Pacing mare is knocking at the door based on her last two tries; can get the job done with a well judged drive. (6) HER OWN LAND is another that can put her best foot forward and just missed glory by only a length. (2) BAD NIGHT MARE moves back to the NW7500 ranks where she got the job done two trips ago.

Race 4

(3) HEAVENS LEGACY closed sharply in her last start to lose the victory by a neck. Mare seems to be heading in the right direction and has every right to mow these down at her best. (1) CRUISINWITHMYBABY was sent by Dube down the road in her most recent event to take home top prize; dangerous again. (5) CLASSY LANE ROSE's last two tries were very sharp so she should not be counted out of this.

Race 5

(7) ROYAL ENGAGEMENT flashed good speed in her Philly finale so she might be ready to get back in winning form and has been facing better when she was here two starts ago; gets the call. (2) KAMWOOD LAUGHTER N took the pocket route last time out for all the glory; major player once again. (5) FOR THE LADIES N did not fire from the 8-hole last out but should do much better from door number five.

Race 6

Will take a shot with (4) ROCKIN ROBERT to get back to the winning groove and this gelding knows how to win at Yonkers, did get the job done with a pocket-rocket score at Philly three tries ago; threat at his best. (1) HI HO STEVERINO showed fine speed at Philly last out and now he is back at the Hilltop and retains the rail; must be considered. (3) MC RUSTY gets post relief and that should help his cause; we shall see.

Race 7

(3) ETERNAL RING Filly has put in two good efforts and gets a better draw; poised to boss these for all the glory. (1) GADSDEN HANOVER has good early pace, moves to the fence and gets Bartlett with the return call; dangerous. (2) SNOW CONE A was second best in her latest and figures to be right in the mix.

Race 8

(1) ROCK ABSORBER Gelding has tactical speed and moves back to the rail. Good to see Dube with the return drive after he got a feel for this 5-year-old pacer; rate and score. (3) SMOOTH CRIMINAL is a very consistent gelding with a down the road victory last time out; dangerous to repeat. (5) CHOCOLATE CRACKERS rallied strongly to nail down the victory last time out; don't overlook.

Race 9

(5) WE THINK ALIKE has hit the board 12 of 31 starts this year and this gelding has the tactical speed to pick them up and lay them down for all the marbles. (7) UNION MAN HANOVER was on the lead most of the way but was nailed in deep stretch last time around; big factor. (2) GYPSY LEATHER gets serious post relief and that should help her cause; maybe.

Race 10

(4) WESTERN BAYAMA's last start is an indication he is rounding back to winning form and trainer Forte keeps Brennan at the helm; the pick. (1) INVICTUS HANOVER beat lesser down the road last time out and now draws the fence; main danger. (2) DALHOUSIE DAVE here's another that went wire to window recently; not out of this.

Race 11

(2) B L CLASS ACT 9-year-old was sharp in his latest and this pacer is back at the NW15000 ranks; primed to take these to task for all the cash. (1) LILYS SWAN POND finally gets post relief and Brennan stays in the bike; main danger. (4) AGGRESSIVE has put in four good starts and in his last try just lost glory by a neck; watch out.

Race 12

(4) DUNE IN RED Mare is knocking at the door based on her last two starts. With a fine-timed drive she can make her return to the winner's circle. (2) SCOOTIN FOR JOY has been in the trifecta picture five starts in a row; big player. (7) OUR ELS DREAM N needs to revert back to her September 22nd start and in her last try at odds on she was shuffled; can be in the mix.
