MEET STATS: 194 - 559 / $1040.90  BEST BETS: 25 - 47 / $90.20


Best Bet: LIGHT UP THE SKY (3rd)

Spot Play: TWIN B FAMOUS (9th)

Race 1

(3) MASSIVE ATTACK A returns locally at the bottom level and seems more than capable with a live trip. (1) AMERICAN ALIVE has been awesome in her last few and is tough to ignore. (5) RAVENNA STAR was overmatched in her last two but was close up in her prior start at this level.

Race 2

(7) CRUISINWITHMYBABY debuts for Allard off an even qualifier and seems capable of big improvement; watch the board. (1) LITTLE JOKE had no chance last out, her debut for Julie Miller. Mare drops and draws best. (6) RD IOU has hit the skids recently but she has plenty of back class.

Race 3

(1) LIGHT UP THE SKY looked like a winner every step of the mile last out in his local return and the veteran is clearly the one to beat from this spot; short price. (4) CLEM finally showed forward progress in last and upset at 32/1. (6) NABBER AGAIN looks dreadful on paper but note the barn change to Milici.

Race 4

(2) BABY REMIND ME has a load of speed and just missed from a similar spot two back; mare may be a touch faster than main rival (4) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY, who is always right there for leading connections. (7) VICTORIA MAY N gets a driver upgrade to Stratton; worth a peek at a price.

Race 5

(1) LAWGIVER HANOVER has raced decently in his last few at The Meadowlands while caught up in fast miles. Vallee trainee has performed well with better than these in the past. (3) INVICTUS HANOVER has also been facing better but hasn't been all that special recently; use caution. (3) DONAU is another with back class and little form.

Race 6

(3) REAL FLIGHT has been digging in gamely week in and week out and is tough not to include here. (5) STOMPIN TOM CREEK can leave the gate and discourage his outside rivals. (2) COLONIAL ROAD never misses a check and can be used underneath from his inside spot.

Race 7

(1) HALTON HURRICANE lacks the class of all of his rivals but he's raced well in his two starts for Michael Russo and it's tough to love anyone else in here. (3) SHARK FANTASY has leading driver Bartlett driving for Banca and must be included. (4) STAY UP LATE drops in class again and went willingly in that qualifier.

Race 8

(2) NOT BEFORE EIGHT has been holding her own versus tough stock at The Big M and should be able to roll by late. (8) HERETIC FRANCO N may try firing from the gate from this outside spot but the import always staggers late; still worthy of consideration. (5) HEY KOBE is camera-shy but fits with these.

Race 9

(1) TWIN B FAMOUS was racing well when last seen locally and he can trip out from this spot. (4) BUBBIE BOY has been on the front end in his two starts for Milici and he may be firing again. (3) JD'S CALEB MAN should be close enough but sometimes has trouble grinding from off the pace.

Race 10

(6) DEWYCOLORINTHELINE has been sharp and is way overdue for the Schnittker barn. (3) FORT VALLEY AS has shown steady improvement and the classy trotter is going to put it all together sooner rather than later. (1) LATOKA draws another good post but he needs to show more late.

Race 11

(1) SCOOTON FOR JOY drops in class for Tritton, draws best and should be in a perfect spot turning for home. (2) KAITLYN RAE has two wins and two seconds in his four starts for Allard since returning from vacation. (3) HEAVENS LEGACY may not see the lead but should be close up throughout. (4) STACIA HANOVER seems to have a big move that needs to be timed right.
