Race 1

(4) ENVIOUS HANOVER did show speed against better. Can move forward. (1) DENYITTOTHEEND has wheeled off three straight victories. Threat again from the fence. (3) GET THE LOOK was nailed for win honors last week.

[NEW PAST PERFORMANCES: For the first time ever, Trackmaster PPs now available on DRF.com!.]

Race 2

(5) CLIMATE HANOVER has tactical speed and is ready to pounce and score over this group. (2) MISS DOLLAR MAM is an upstate invader that rallied nicely to grab the score in her recent outing. (4) BIJOU THEATER can grab a share of the purse.

Race 3

(5) THUNDERS FURY should fit well against these. Can make some serious noise with a golden trip. (3) MYSTICAL WALTER put in a nice qualifier at Philly last time out. Might be a factor in here. (6) TIDEWATER TOMAHAWK got the job done two trips ago. Needs to step it up based on his last try.

Race 4

(1) ALWAYS LOVE ME moves to the fence where she was a sharp second two starts ago. Ready to get it done tonight. (2) LOCAL ART gets post relief after closing well last out for the placing. (3) SHELIKESITHERWAY was used up in the early stages last time around; not out of this.

Race 5

(5) STONEBRIDGE COWBOY was caught at the finish in his latest. He has been knocking at the door and is ready to atone for all the glory. (3) THUNDER NOISE took the pocket route home to victory in his last trip; very dangerous again. (2) BAZOOKA should fare well from the two slot. Watch out!

Race 6

(1) FLYING INSTRUCTOR has put in two seconds in a row. Moves now to the rail, where he might take these down the road for his first score of the year. (4) DANISHDUJOUR was nailed for the victory in his recent trip to the post; big threat. (5) LONG FIGHT HANOVER fits well in here and can't be counted out.

Race 7

(3) SOOKIE showed good late pace in her last two starts. With a fine-timed drive from Kakaley, she can make tonight a winning one. (2) NUTMEGS  DESIRE gets post relief and it should help her cause for getting back on the winning track. (8) STAGE IT RIGHT flew home strong from the 8-hole last out.

Race 8

(3) SOMEPLACE SPECIAL scored two straight, now goes for a new barn plus  gets the services of Brennan. Not out of the question for the hat trick. (5) AUCKLAND FLYER has tactical speed and fits with these. Main danger in this event. (2) KEEMOSABE gets a cozy post for a sharp outfit. Beware!

Race 9

(4) SHAWNEE DANCER was quite sharp upstate last out. Pacing mare is very capable of getting the job done with a perfect trip. (6) NO LIES took an easy lead in the stretch, but was nailed for the victory; threat. (3) MCEVER closed well for all the glory in her latest.

Race 10

(5) COCOA BEACH was very sharp in her last try. She is seeking her first victory of the year. This looks like a perfect spot for her to do just that. (2) HARMONY OAKS QUIKE put in two nice rallies. Should contend with these. (1) SUMMER SNOW gets the rail slot and is on the drop-down. Big factor.

Race 11

Pompano invader (2) JJS DOUGHNUT gets a cozy post to work with. He has tactical speed and it is good to see Sears with the assignment. Ready for action. (6) HARE CRAFT needs to return to his 4-2 trip to contend with this group; maybe. (5) MEETYOUATMIDNIGHT was sharp in his qualifier at Philly last out; ready for return to Yonkers.

Race 12

(8) TREVORS BEBE didn't race all that badly in her latest. Has the speed to overcome the eight slot and might have the ability to move forward. (3) GROUNDED closed well to nail down the place spot in her last try; main danger. (4) FOX VALLEY HERMIA will be closing in the final strides.
