MEET STATS: 181 - 774 / $1,157.80

BEST BETS: 22 - 75 / $113.50

Best Bet: HEY KOBE (12th)

Spot Play: CLARA BEA (5th)


Race 1

(4) SOUTHWIND MISCHIEF seems to be a perfect spot for this mare to get the job done with a favorable trip; we shall see. (2) AMERICAN ALIVE flashed good speed in her latest; main danger. (3) I DO IT MYSELF put in a mild rally for fourth money last out.

Race 2

(2) ON THE PODIUM was a game second in his last try and this gelding appears to be in fine form; gets the call. (3) STORMONT PARK gets post relief and that should help his cause. (4) DEWYCOLORINTHELINE closed strongly for the victory in his latest.

Race 3

(4) CLASSY LANE ROSE showed life closing late to nail down the show spot in her last try. Mare can make tonight a winning one with a well judged drive. (5) NIPPY W HANOVER is on quite a roll scoring her third straight victory; likely favorite. (3) CLEAREDFORTAKEOFF should fare well from the 2-hole; watch out.

Race 4

(3) HER OWN LAND just missed glory by a head and this pacing mare seems to like this level; gets the call. (1) ARIELLE LYNN has the rail and speed; big threat. (4) SIR JILLIAN Z TAM should do much better from the inside post; watch out.

Race 5

(2) CLARA BEA Pacing mare just got up for win honors last out and she continues to stay in sharp form; the pick. (3) CHEYENNE ROBIN rallied strongly to nail down the score in her latest. (4) KAMWOOD LAUGHTER N came up a little short losing glory by a head; not out of this.

Race 6

(3) MIRAMONTMAN Clearly this pacer is knocking at the door based on his last three trips to the post; big threat at his best. (2) BORDER CONTROL A Sharp in his last start with a very game second. (4) PRONOLOGY Z TAM rallied strongly to grab the show spot last time out.

Race 7

(3) CHUCARO ACERO BC finally gets post relief and there should be enough speed in here for this 5-year-old to mow them down for all the glory. (4) FAMEOUS WESTERN here's another that gets a better post to work with; factor. (1) MC DYNAMITE was on the rim at the 3/4 pole and rallied for show honors last out.

Race 8

(1) MOTU MOONBEAM N has sharp speed and the good news is she moves to the fence where she can take these down the road for all the marbles. (2) KAITLYN RAE is very consistent and has hit the board 8 of 10 trips this year; main threat. (3) OUR ELS DREAM N moves now to the 3-hole and that might help her cause.

Race 9

(4) IDOLE DUHARAS leaves Pocono and is back at Yonkers so hopefully this gelding can make a quick turnaround here if given a favorable trip. (6) SIX GUN was sent down the road in his last try for all the glory; post hurts but is very capable. (3) BETTOR REASON N moves up in class but gets a cozy post to work with; can't overlook.

Race 10

(3) ROETHBLISSBERGER Gelding was sharp in his last start finishing second. 8-year-old is heading in the right direction and could be the boss over these with a down the road score. (1) SPORTSKEEPER retains the rail and moves down in class; must be considered. (4) REAL FLIGHT is clearly better than his last flop; not out of this.

Race 11

(1) JAILHOUSE JESSICA Mare knows how to get the job done and now she moves to the fence; big factor. (2) TAKE MY PICTURE has tactical speed and Brennan has the assignment; main danger. (7) SKATES N PLATES led most of the way but could not hold off the winner last out.

Race 12

(5) HEY KOBE moves back to the NW10000 ranks where she was a very sharp second two trips ago; capable of putting her best foot forward. (1) FOR THE LADIES N has good speed but tired in the stretch run in her last try so maybe the rail could help her chances; possible. (6) CHERRY BLISS faced Open foes at Tioga last time around; not out of this.
