Best Bet: PEOPLE LIKE ME (4th)      Spot Play: RULE BY STRENGTH (2nd)

Race 1

(3) LADY YACHTSMAN showed signs of life in her last trip. She can top these at her best. (2) ABLE YANKEE got the job done going down the road in her recent start. (7) SKYWAY HANOVER has hit the board in her last four tries.

Race 2

(4) RULE BY STRENGTH Trotter should appreciate the move back to the four hole and Brennan returns. He can take this with a perfect trip. (3) PERFECT SCAM Solid effort from the eight post last time out. (6) TANGO DANCER She got the job done against lesser in her last try.

Race 3

(7) HIGHLY THOUGHT OF Experiment at the Meadowlands did not work out for this pacing mare. She retruns to the half-mile oval and has every right to be ready for a big effort against these. (8) JK GERONIMO is better than her last flop. (1) SAD TUNE should fare well from the fence.

Race 4

(2) PEOPLE LIKE ME Pacing mare was sharp for the place spot at the Big M last time out. She is very capable of putting her best foot forward with Brennan at the helm. (1) BRITASH REDCOAT Tough beat in her recent trip to the post.  Moving to the fence could help her tonight. (5) STYX DELIGHT N charged late to grab the victory last time around.

Race 5

(5) GOTABGOODTOBLUCKY Gelding put in a sharp effort last time out. He can rate and pounce over these at his best. (3) ROADSHOW VIC Mild rally in his last try.  Now Brennan takes over this trotter. (1) SWAGGER BEGONIA showed good speed in his last one.

Race 6

(4) MAKE A BUNDLE N She is on a roll scoring her fourth straight, and this pacing mare is sharp enough to keep on her winning ways. (3) SO CONFUSING Four-year-old miss got the job done in her recent try and is the main danger. (5) NELLY HANOVER completes the trifecta.

Race 7

(3) R C CRUISER Seven-year-old gelding has good speed and with a perfect start out of the gate, this pacer can take these all the way for the score. (2) DONTAKEYOURGUNS could be right in the mix with a better trip. (6) JOLLY LESTER has hit the board in his last five tries.

Race 8

(4) IWANNABESEDATED Eleven-year-old showed good early zip last time out. He is capable of moving forward to get the job done for win honors. (2) PRESTISSIMO was sharp in his last start. (7) MCGREAT will be closing in the final strides.

Race 10

(1) FORT VALLEY AS is 3 for 3 at the Hilltop and clearly has every right to repeat. (6) TWIN B CAVIAR has scored two in a row for team Pena. (2) MARION MISS JULIE Trotting mare should appreciate the move to the two hole.

Race 11
