(3) WAYWARD SON flahsed good speed and was nailed at the wire last out; another chance for glory against these. (4) DUTCH RICHMAN just got up recently for the score against the top pick; threat again. (2) LOCKLOADNEXPLODE should do much better with his return to Yonkers.

(3) HOBOKEN SONNY broke at the start last out but made a great recovery for the fourth spot; good chance he can get back to his winning ways. (4) UNCLE FREDDIE closed well for the placing in his latest; main danger. (5) RISE N SHINE is off a good qualifier; maybe.


(1) TERROR RISING raced against slighty better at the Meadowlands and this might be a perfect spot for this pacing mare to bring home top honors. (6) AUF WIEDERSEHEN got the job done last out when she was sent down the road; seeking the hat trick. (3) LITTLE MISS HENRY was a pocket-rocket for the victory last out; quite capable again.


(2) FOR ALL WE KNOW was sharp in her last four trips to the post. Very consistent mare can get it done at her best. (5) AMERICAN SHUTTLE put in a mild bid in her recent try; could contend in here. (6) WHIRLWIND is much better than her last flop and Brennan keeps the faith.


(1) HOLLY HILL MASTER gets post & class relief. Gelding could boss these for win honors. (8) MY MAN CAN was second best last out; quite possible from the 8-hole. (3) STRONG HALL posted an easy score against lesser last time around; could be right there despite the rise in class.


(4) ALWAYS LOVE ME is knocking at the door based on her last two tries; all systems go to take this. (5) BOOTS PLACE drops a notch in class and that might help her chances. (3) ZIP IT LOCK IT could make some noise in the stretch drive.


With a better trip, (4) MACH THIS WAY is sharp enough to get back on the winning track; good to see Kakaley at the helm. (5) AIR GUITAR HANOVER flashed fine speed in her latest; not out this with Sears aboard. (2) NOTREADYTOBENICE will be closing in the final strides; worth a look.


(1) ITS DE LOVELY closed well for the fourth spot recently. Seven-year-old mare moves to the fence and that might be the ticket she needs to best these. (2) CLASSY LANE ROSE moves down the ladder and the 2-hole will suit her fine; big threat. (5) SIR LBS Z TAM could be right in the mix; maybe.


(7) CLEM showed good early zip in his last try; could fire his best with Sears on the return call. (2) KID CRUISER rallied strongly last out for the victory; repeat is not out the question. (1) SKY DESPERADO could fare extremely well from the rail slot; beware.


(2) ALFREDSSON moves down in class after showing good speed last out; ready to roll. (4) N J LAW was sent down the road for all the glory recently; main danger. (5) THAT MAN OF MINE raced evenly and held the show spot last time around; watch out.


(2) ARMBRO CASINO is an old pro who might be ready to score, but will need the right trip to take down these. (5) IVANA HANOVER made last week a winning one; double score is quite possible. (4) GRECALE AS could have a say despite moving up the scale.


(2) IF I DIDNT CARE gets the best of the draw tonight and she has every right to take top honors. (6) CAMPHOR HANOVER has put in two fine efforts; major player with these. (1) JANIE BAY should show some speed from the fence; capable.
