Race 2

(2) PHOTO RULES's last one is an indication this trotter is ready to fire his best tonight. (1) CASH VALUE was quite game for the placing last week. (5) S F ACEINTHEHOLE will be closing in the final strides.

Race 3

(4) WESTERN EXPRESSION has some speed and might take these to task for all the cash. (8) DONTAKEYOURGUNS could be ready from the 8-slot. (1) TUGBOAT should fare well from the fence.

Race 4

(2) CYCLONE NIGHT N has fine speed and has every right to down this group at his best. (4) LATIN LYRIC has wheeled off two straight victories. (5) RUNAWAY ROSE went down the road for win honors last time out.

Race 5

(3) MEMEME can get it done if she gets away in good order. (5) PAY TRIBUTE She is knocking at the door. (7) JULIAS SONG N could have a say.

Race 6

(1) LONG STORY SHORT gets back to the rail where he got the job done; sharp. (2) ALTERNAT THURSDAYS can be a main danger with the post relief. (5) JON WIN is better than his last flop.

Race 7

(1) BABES BISTRO returns to Yonkers. When we last saw this gal, she was a good third two starts back. (4) STORMUNN went down the road for all the glory last time around. (7) HARPER LEE could land a share.

Race 8

(6) SOUTHWIND WARSAW rallied strongly for the show spot. Gelding can down these trotters at his best. (3) IM THE CASH MAN just held on for the score last week. (4) JAILHOUSE FUNK could be right in the mix.

Race 9

(5) MARIE THE ARTIST Vis very sharp and can take another against these. (3) DENYITTOTHEEND beat lesser company in her last trip to the post. (4) WIZZARD QUEEN could make some noise.

Race 10

(4) MYSTICAL ESCAPADE closed strongly for the win last time around. 4-year-old mare is very capable of getting it done again. (6) ADONIS B moves out of the 8-hole and gets class relief. (2) BLUFF is a Pennsylvania invader who could have a say from the 2-slot.

Race 11

I will take a chance with (8) KILLER QUAKES to mow these down from the far outside slot. (1) ACTIVATOR closed strongly for the score last time out. (3) ARTS DELIGHT just held on for win honors recently.

Race 12

(4) FLYING MOCHA raced evenly in her last one and with a better trip, this gal can top these at her best. (6) LATE FLYIN N has tactical speed; contender.  (7) NORA LEE might have a say from the outside post.
