Race 1

(2) COSMICPEDIA was motoring on the backstretch from fourth to an easy victory last time out. All systems go for this pacer to grab his second straight score. (4) LEGAL LITIGATOR will most likely be on the engine but must relax his early foot to contend. (8) OUTA MY HEAD was no match for the top pick last out. Post hurts, but is capable of making some serious noise.

Race 2

(6) WHITE ROLLS flashed good speed in his upstate finale. Three starts back he was quite sharp for win honors at Monticello; threat at his best. (5) HASH TAG CHROME makes his way from Tioga with a nose victory last time around; good enough to be a major factor in here. (1) MAJOR PLANS blasted out from the 7-hole to the front, but tired in the stretch drive recently to lose by a head; watch out.

Race 3

(4) HUDSONANDBERNARD makes his initial trip to the Hilltop after two nice tries upstate. Two trips ago at Pocono he made his move on the backstretch to get the job done and showed good early speed last time out to last for third at Tioga; big player. (8) KJ ERICH is a speedy 2-year-old has hit the board in all of his tries; the one to catch. (1) FRESH CUT put in a mild bid in his recent outing; should fare well from the fence tonight.

Race 4

Considering most of these are seeking their first pari-mutuel victory, I'll go with (2) DUAL CELEBRATION to put it all together. Upstate invader put in two good efforts on June 29 and July 8 respectfully, now Brennan will take charge on this 2-year-old. With a favorable trip, juvenile can make tonight a winning one. (1) ROLL AWAY JOE was just a little short on getting the score last time out at Tioga; main danger.  (6) ARTMAGIC was over his head in the Sheppard final last week, but this might be a perfect spot for him to contend against these.

Race 5

(2) BAZILLION took charge right from the bell, but might have gone too quick and faded down along the rail last time out against most of these. Gelding needs to go back to his July 25 trip if he has any chance of turning the tables on (5) AMASA AL. The latter blew the doors off the competition on July 9 and it appears this guy has the ability to make it two in row; maybe. (1) WHOLLY LOUY was completely off the screen and surged his way from sixth to second in a blink of an eye last time; watch out.

Race 6

(7) MY IDEAL HANOVER got bet down to 3-1 last week and showed good speed against better company. Pacing mare could be ready for a breakout performance. On May 12 she was a fast closing third in the Jackpot series against Grace Seelster; big threat. (4) JOKES JET was dull in her last try but now moves to the four slot where she showed good speed at Tioga on July 3; possible. (2) LITTLE MERMAID N also receives post relief and two starts back she was in the pocket and came through the passing lane to hold on for the victory; not out of this.

Race 7

(1) FINE DIAMOND is clearly knocking at the door; stays on the rail and good to Brennan gets the call for trainer Ron Burke. All systems go for him to get the job done. (5) AUTOTUNE HANOVER leaves the fence for the 5-hole, but if he goes back to his four length victory last week, the rest will be battling for the place money. (4) CARLOS DANGER showed good early pace and held on for the third spot at Tioga on July 17; don't overlook.

Race 8

(3) JOE LARRY N CURLY posted a tough break at odds-on in the Sheppard elimination two starts ago, but this guy rebounded back at Tioga with a sharp score; talented juvenile can boss this group. (2) RED ROLL showed some speed against the top pick but was a non factor in that event; the 2-hole should help his cause; maybe. (7) TRAVEL PLAYLIST got to the front early, was sitting in the pocket for the rocket victory last out at Tioga; post hurts but is very capable.

Race 9

(5) CHEYENNE LEILA was quite sluggish from the 8-hole last time out. The good news for this pacing mare is she moves back to the NW5k ranks where she was a railying third three starts back; could take this with a fine-timed drive from Ray Baynes  (3) IDEAL A LITTLE was fourth last out, but on July 9 she rolled home to an easy victory; big factor. (1) JANIE BAY comes by way of Vernon Downs with good early foot; watch out.

Race 10

(3) MURRAYFIELD was completely dead last for most the trip last out but did close some. Now this mare moves to the three-slot against a weak group and Brennan is back in the bike; can boss these with a favorable trip. (4) STRINGS was against tougher last out and tried to clear from the 8-hole, but that was not the case and she faded into submission; should find these to her liking. (7) BLUSH HANOVER put in two good outings at Philly, so she is sharp enough to contend.

Race 11

(6) DUKE DID IT was first up at the half and could not clear to the front, but did hold on for the fourth spot. There is an indication this gelding could revert to his late punch; threat at his best.   (2) IM BLUE TOO's last outing was on the engine for the entire trip, but he could not hold off the eventual winner Someplace Special, who was buying is time in the pocket; main danger. (3) TOO DARN HOT did not disappoint the chalk players with a well measured drive from Brennan last week to grab his second straight victory; beware again.

Race 12

(3) BABY REMIND ME finally receives post relief. On July 9 this gal was a fast closing second at this level. Versatile miss can get the job done with Sears taking over the lines. (6) ROCK N LOAD took charge from the bell and stayed on the lead down the stretch, but could not hold on for win honors last week; sharp enough to contend. (1) SHESAIDHESAIDISAID makes her return to Yonkers. If you go back to May 20, she was on the fence and got the job done against a better group; not out of this by far.
