Race 2

(3) BORN TO FIGHT gets class relief and did show good early zip last time out. (5) LUCKY COLBY has wheeled off five wins in a row; dangerous again. (2) BLOODSTOCKSHALLTAB fits well in here.

Race 3

(1) NUTMEGS DESIRE drops a notch in class. Moves to the fence and has the speed to boss these at her best. (3) EVIL EVA & (6) MATTYS BIG DAY could make some noise in the stretch drive.

Race 4

(1) LITTLE MISS HENRY gets serious post relief and this gal receives the services of Brennan. (7) PERFECTLY ROYAL is back at Yonkers where she got the job done three trips ago. (2) BOOTS PLACE should do much better from the two-hole.

Race 5

(7) RINGSIDE MUSCLE has fine speed and good to see Brennan back aboard. (1) ANTHONYSKYWALKER moves to the rail slot and that could help his cause. (4) JAILHOUSE FUNK closed strongly to grab the victory in his latest.

Race 6

(1) NF INDEPENDENCE draws well and has a good chance to make tonight a winning one. (4) ALL STAR DRAGON raced evenly in his recent trip. (5) DANAS SHARP SMART could land a share.

Race 7

(2) CAMPHOR HANOVER did not fire in her Philly finale but seems to have a fondness for Yonkers; worth a closer look. (5) MCEVER will need a better trip than in her last try. (6) LITTLE MERMAID N has hit the board in her last three starts; watch out.

Race 8

(4) BACK TO THE WEST showed some early pace last out at Pocono. Moves back to the Hilltop and Brennan signs on for the drive. (1) ROCKAHOLIC broke in his last start. Four-year-old can be in the mix from the rail. (3) FUZZYLEGSANDALL has put in three good tries; not out of this.

Race 9

(1) DVCFLYINGFRENCHMAN put in a mild bid in his last trip to the post. Gelding might be ready to get it done at his best. (2) GIDDY UP DELIGHT was second best in his most recent outing. (7) DASH N could have a say in the outcome.

Race 10

(1) PASSION R VIRGINIE was facing much better in her last try. Pacing mare is clearly better than most of these and will be tough to beat in this event. (5) FLYING MOCHA just got up for show honors last time around. (4) IDEAL GINNY may hang on for a piece.

Race 11

(2) KEEPERS DESTINY should find these to her liking and good to see Sears at the helm. (3) BO TOX HANOVER should fare quite well from the three slot. (8) SEA CRUISE HANOVER could be right in the mix with a good trip from the eight-hole.

Race 12

(1) SMOKE PAN MIRRORS ships in from Philly, moves to the rail and picks up Brennan; worth a shot. (4) QUAIL took the pocket route home to victory in her most recent try; big threat. (3) ITS DE LOVELY has the tactical speed to contend with this group.
