MEET STATS: 226 - 665 / $1210.90 

BEST BETS: 33 - 56 / $116.00



Spot Play: DOJEA SOLO (8th)

Race 1

(1) CRUISINWITHMYBABY has missed a couple of weeks after failing on the front end but the Allard trainee gets another crack from the rail and can make amends. (4) ART IDEAL folded badly last out but that was against better. (3) VICTORIA MAY N has no excuse not to land a share from this spot.

Race 2

(2) KAPOW kicked home nicely last out at Goshen and he can improve off that effort. (5) REASINFORPLEASIN has been much improved in his last few and he looms a large threat. (1) UNCLE MACK should be close up throughout as long as he minds his manners.

Race 3

(3) JUMBO JET N tried it from off the pace last week and powered by to win easily; Vallee trainee faces better but the sharp sort can repeat. (7) SIX GUN debuts for Milici via claim and is clearly capable of better. (1) CANBEC KINGKAZIMIR gets much needed post relief tonight and Joe Bongiorno jogged on a Richard Johnson trainee this past Monday night.

Race 4

(5) THE EMPIRESISTER N gets class relief in her local return after two needed starts at Philly; Bamond trainee could be ready to show more. (8) MISCHIEF MAKER N ships from Plainridge and gets a notable change to Sears but she'll have to overcome the eight hole. (3) HERETIC FRANCO N seems to be better than she's showing. Recent import has been hanging a lot lately.

Race 5

(1) DAYSON was a legit win candidate heading into the Beal at Pocono but he made another break. Burke trainee debuts with the trotting hobbles tonight off a sharp qualifier. (2) SIR ROYSON has tailed off in his last few after a nice showing in the NYSS a few starts prior. (4) SMALLTOWNTHROWDOWN will be firing from the gate for Dan Daley.

Race 6

(1) NEFERTITI BLUECHIP gets the winning combination of class and post relief. (4) SUMMER SNOW was a solid two-move winner last week showing unknown speed. (3) VILLAGE JESSICA could be on the move early to secure good position.

Race 7

(1) DANTE has missed some time since his nice score in the EBC Final at Vernon but I'm sure Svanstedt has him primed for this assignment. (3) THE ROYAL HARRY has also been sharp giving Svanstedt a legit chance for the top two spots here. (4) REVE ROYALE gets Bartlett in the bike off a sharp qualifier.

Race 8

(8) DOJEA SOLO has blast-off speed and seems capable of carving out a live trip from this outside spot; at a price. (2) URBANA BAYAMA has been dull lately but does drop a notch in class. (3) INTREPID HALL gets needed post relief in his third start for new connections.

Race 9

(3) REAL FLIGHT is in raging form and is the pick to take another. (2) PIECE OF THE ROCK lands inside what he needs to beat for Ginsburg and I suspect he'll be driven aggressively. (4) TWIN B FAMOUS has been coming up short recently but he should land a piece.

Race 10

(1) STONEBRIDGE TONIC has surprised me with back-to-back solid winning efforts; why not again? (3) FOREVER JUST goes for another new barn via claim and he gets post relief; threat. (7) SHADIOS faces better tonight looking for five straight.

Race 11

(2) BINGO QUEEN had some late trot last out finishing willingly; we all know if she minds her manners and has some late clearance she can storm home. (3) SKATES N PLATES broke leaving last out; he's back with Sears and is a serious threat to go all the way. (7) ZOOMING faces a bit softer and has loads of back class.

Race 12

(7) BABY REMIND ME was treated rudely last out but stayed on the duration only getting beaten by 3 lengths; Sears is back driving and I have to stick with her. (2) MACHO CHICK faces softer for a barn that's going well now. (4) ROYAL ENGAGEMENT ships in from The Meadowlands, keeps Bongiorno and will likely be aggressively handled.
