MEET STATS: 257 - 761 / $1344.40

BEST BETS: 36 - 63 / $123.40

Best Bet: REAL FLIGHT (10th)



Race 1

(1) MCARDLE ROYALE N took these the distance last out and will be favored to repeat. (6) LIGHT UP THE SKY has been a consistent force at this basement level since joining the Allard barn. (5) THISGUYSAROCKSTAR has also raced well in his last few.

Race 2

(5) CRUISINWITHMYBABY is another bottom-level Allard trainee who consistently makes money. (3) JOKES JET just missed last out in a good try and she drops in class with another decent post; threat. (4) GOTTA BE ME gets an interesting barn change here to Robertson; consider.

Race 3

(1) SIR JILLIAN Z TAM has zero excuse to fail from this spot, however she will be overbet and always seems to have an excuse; don't take too short of a price. (3) VICTORIA MAY N gets the more aggressive Dube in the bike tonight. (4) MISS MACHQUEEN is capable with a live trip.

Race 4

(4) BJ'S GUY returns locally after a confidence-boosting victory at Saratoga and he may have too much class for these. (1) WESTERN BAYAMA debuts for the Forte barn off a private purchase and he draws best after racing well last out. (6) GYPSY LEATHER gave it a legit shot after taking money in his second local appearance but folded on the front end; off the pace tactics tonight?

Race 5

(2) CLARA BEA has been razor-sharp in her last three yet still may offer decent value. (3) CAROBBEAN PACETRY should be a part of the early pace from this spot. (4) CARIBBEAN ROSE N gets needed post relief and picks up Bartlett.

Race 6

(6) ANGELS ROCKN PINK was solid in defeat here two back in a NYSS test; filly is stuck outside again but has the early speed to overcome. Use her at a price. (2) TIME ON MY HANDS won here at odds-on two back but didn't really impress me; vulnerable. (4) SOFT IDEA loses Bartlett to the likely favorite but she's been a solid performer for Toscano.

Race 7

(3) NO CLOUDS BLUECHIP exploded home for second when here last month and followed that up with a nice two-move win at Vernon; John Berger trainee is very sharp and can take this with smooth sailing. (1) DIME A DANCE draws best for Burke off a recent win; logical. (6) WISHY WASHY GIRL debuts for the Brainard barn and adds Lasix.

Race 8

(3) PAPPY'S PAL has raced well in three starts since joining the Burke Brigade and he deserves a long look despite the bump in class. (1) SPORTSKEEPER is still trying to find his level and the Casie Coleman trainee hung off a live trip last week. (2) SKYFUL OF LIGHTERS was a winner two back from a similar spot.

Race 9

(6) EDEN PAIGE N gets class relief in her fourth U.S. start and is now second-time Lasix; watch the board here as I'm sure she'll be coming down off her 20/1 morning line. (3) FANTICIPATION gets post relief and picks up Bartlett. (1) KAITLYN RAE has been short in her last two; don't accept a short price.

Race 10

(4) REAL FLIGHT has been super in practically all of his recent starts and gets the call to win again. (5) ROETHBLISSBERGER was gunned down by the top choice last week and he figures to be forwardly placed again. (3) HANDS OFF FRANK gets some post relief and can be close enough to land a share at a price.

Race 11

(3) FORT VALLEY AS is feeling good again; veteran is facing tougher tonight but he's got tons of back class. (7) AUSPICIOUS HANOVER closed with plenty last week from too far back; I'd like to see Sears leave the gate with him and drop into an awaiting hole. (1) ROSSINI returns locally and is another with solid back class.

Race 12

(3) PLAYAWAY N just missed last week when dropped to this level and she returns to Bartlett tonight. (6) MOTU MOONBEAM N has been really impressive since arriving from Down-Under; must include. (1) DEUCES FOR CHARITY prevailed at odds-on last out and the Allard trainee draws best.
