Race 2

(3) VILLAGE JESSICA almost lasted on the front end last week at a big price; should be forwardly placed again. (7) TRINE HANOVER stalked the top one and got by late; figure on her leaving hard again to secure a similar trip. (6) INTOVIEW seems like a decent fit here and did rally nicely last out.

Race 3

(2) ARTHUR was used from the eight hole off the claim and caved in on the front end; he gets post relief tonight and should be in line for a more relaxed trip. (6) REPORT FOR DUTY N was a good second at this level and the 14-year-old will make a nice living at this $12,500 class. (1) SAKRA FELLA is another 14-year-old who draws best and has been a nice story so far this year.

Race 4

(3) SUMMER SNOW was a solid winner at this level two back and the classy grey mare should be close enough to strike from this spot. (6) DEREK DELIGHT will be firing and likely cutting the mile. (5) BAD GIRL VEGAS certainly was bad last out but her prior start was decent.

Race 5

(1) DALLENBACH HANOVER returned to the Cad Gregory barn and showed forward progress last out; expecting big things from this one tonight. (2) WAYNE THE LEFTY has been a solid force at this basement claiming level for Banca. (4) GRANDPA DON looks for two straight but may be at a tactical disadvantage tonight with the top two inside of him.

Race 6

(3) PLAYAWAY N takes a needed drop in class and lands a decent post for proven connections. (1) SIMPLE SAVER N has shown nothing in her last few but she does land the best post tonight. (4) TOP BRAND ships in from Northfield off a nice win but there's reportedly been some controversy with her trainer out there; use caution.

Race 7

(6) BOX CAR JOHNNIE gets an impossible to ignore barn change to Milici here and must be included; looks like the automated morning line whiffed on this one. (2) ONTHECLOCK HANOVER returns to Banca, will improve. (5) MONTREAL PHIL looks for two straight at this level.

Race 8

(3) ANALYZE hasn't done much in her last three from outside posts versus better; Team Buter trainee lands a much better spot tonight. (2) MAJOR DANCER always seems like she's better than she actually races; look elsewhere for value. (1) SENTIMENTAL LADY returns to the Adamczyk barn and has speed with the best post.

Race 9

(1) ALL FIRED UP was aggressively handled last week before flattening; worth a look from the rail. (6) INTHENAMEOFJAMES finished with pace after escaping traffic last week; expect early movement. (5) SEA STAR looks for two straight.

Race 10

(5) KIDDIE MCCARDLE has been second best in her last two and has hit the ticket in her last six; consistent mare should land a big share here. (6) HAZMATT looks for five straight but loses her regular driver. (3) BAD NIGHT MARE is up in class off a game score.

Race 11

(5) SCREAMAN SEAMAN A has rallied well in his last two and was second best on both occasions; he could trip out at a decent price with some suspect rivals inside of him. (6) OHOKA TEXAS N is another veteran who seems capable with a good trip. (1) TYE SEELSTER is probably the one to beat but doesn't seem reliable enough at the current time.

Race 12

(4) LIGHTNING PAIGE returns to the small track off a willing effort last out versus some good rivals; Steve Elliott trainee looks perfectly spotted here. (3) CANACO STAR was forced to come uncovered last out and couldn't hack it; expect a close-up rail ride tonight. (5) IT'S A MIRACLE has raced well with this type in the past.
