Best Bet: AMERICAN ALIVE (2nd)

Spot Play: THINKOFAGAMEPLAN (4th)

Race 1

(1) BOX CAR JOHNNIE flashed good speed at this level but tired badly in the stretch drive last out. Gelding is moving to the fence and could make amends against these. (2) LIGHT UP THE SKY led most of the way but was nailed for win honors in his latest. (7) LIGHTNING STRIKE posted a sharp score at Tioga last out and this gelding should be right in the mix despite the far outside post.

Race 2

(2) AMERICAN ALIVE seems to be coming around off her last start, a game third. Pacing mare moves to the 2-hole and that should help her cause; the pick. (1) AFTER ALIMONY gets post relief and has speed; threat. (3) MY IDEAL HANOVER showed good speed last out but was caught in deep stretch for win honors; not out of this.

Race 3

(1) VICTORIA MAY N is knocking at the door based on her last two tires. With a well judged drive this 8-year-old can greet the cameraman for pictures. (4) NIPPY W HANOVER came outside at the three-quarter pole and just got up for the victory last time around. (2) CRUISINWITHMYBABY has put in two fine efforts and must be considered in all the exotic slots.

Race 4

(6) THINKOFAGAMEPLAN rallied strongly to nail down the show spot at Pocono last time around. Four-year-old pacer seems to be heading in the right direction and it is good to see Brennan with the assignment. (1) BRETT MCFAVERELOUS flashed good early zip in his last two trips to the post; main danger. (4) ARTSMAH raced evenly for the show money at Pocono last time out.

Race 5

(1) BAD NIGHT MARE moves to the fence and this mare figures to get a nice trip against these; worth a shot to boss these. (3) KAMWOOD LAUGHTER N was a very game third as the chalk last time out. (2) HERETIC FRANCO N posted an even finish for show honors last out and it is good to see Brennan at the helm; watch out.

Race 6

(1) BETTOR BELIEVE IT retains the rail and gelding was sharp at the Meadowlands last time out; good enough to put his best foot forward against this group. (2) KEYSTONE HONOR launched an outside bid approaching the three-quarter pole to land down the show spot in his latest. (4) PASS THEM BY N could land a share of the purse.

Race 7

(4) THE RIGHT MOVE can take this if she returns to her May 7th start where she was a fast closing third to miss glory by only a neck; using. (1) BABY REMIND ME gets post relief and this should help her chances against these. (3) WRAPPED TO GO gets the luck of the draw and must be considered.

Race 8

(1) CHEYENNE ROBIIN moves inside, gets post relief and has tactical speed. Pacing mare can boss these at her best. (2) ELISAVETA N showed good early zip at Philly last time around and gets the 2-hole plus Bartlett; threat. (3) FOR THE LADIES N will be closing in the final strides.

Race 9

(4) INTREPID HALL has tactical speed and good to see Stratton back in the sulky as he was a fast closing fourth behind this gelding two trips ago; gets the call. (7) P L HELLCAT has gotten the job done from the 8-hole here three starts back and could make some serious noise. (1) OHOKA TEXAS N should do much better from the rail.

Race 10

(4) SEA STAR showed good pace but was no match for the winner last time out. Five-Year old appears to be heading in the right direction and with a fine-timed drive he can get the job done. (3) UNION MAN HANOVER has good early zip and was in the pocket most of the way last time out but could not get close to the winner; formidable. (1) ITSONLYROCKNROLL A did not fire at Pocono but is back at Yonkers where he has done his best racing; watch out.

Race 11

(3) KARETS is a consistent 5-year-old that has hit the board in his last four starts. Now he might have a found a perfect spot to top these; the pick. (4) ZORGWIJK NOVA was in the pocket most of the way and missed glory by two lengths in her latest; main danger. (2) LATOKA might have been used up in the early stages last out but he figures to be a factor in here.

Race 12

(2) KAITLYN RAE showed sharp speed in her last start and almost got the job done, losing by only a neck. Pacing mare has hit the board 7 of 9 tries this year and moving to the 2-hole makes this 7-year-old a solid contender for win honors tonight. (3) MOTU MOONBEAM N has scored four in a row and figures to be the main danger to the top pick. (4) ROCK ME GENTLY flashed good speed in her Pocono finale; don't overlook.
