Spot Play: FOX VALLEY STEFFEN (3rd)

 

Race 1

(5) V I P BAYAMA showed good speed in his last try and this gelding appears to be heading in the right direction; gets the call. (8) IDEAL WILLIE was sharp for second money at Pocono last out but will have to overcome the 8-hole to best these; we shall see. (3) CLASSIESISTAR N did not get the job done at odds on last week but must be considered in all the exotic slots.

Race 2

(1) BROADWAY ROCKS was sent down the road last time out for all the glory at Freehold. Trotter seems to be in excellent form so two straight is not out of the question. (3) GREY ICE 10-year-old now moves to the half-mile oval and gets post relief; threat. (7) CASSAS IMAGE is knocking at the door based on her last two trips to the post.

Race 3

(6) FOX VALLEY STEFFEN showed good speed for 3/4's but tried in the stretch drive last time out. Trotting gelding needs to revert to his 9/20 start and if that's the case the rest will have to settle for minor awards. (1) SURFACE TENSION gets serious post relief and that should help his cause; maybe. (2) WESTERN CREDIT was sent down the road in his last try for the victory.

Race 4

(1) HIDDEN IDENTITY has put in two sharp efforts at Pocono and this trotter is very capable of getting the job done with Bartlett at the helm. (7) MOVEMENT has scored in her last four starts and she must overcome the 7-hole to make it five straight; capable. (2) MAMA MADE ME BLUE has won 18 of 29 starts this year so he clearly is not out of this.

Race 5

(3) ALL NIGHT CREDIT is back in door number three where this trotter was a very game second three trips ago; with a favorable trip he can greet the cameraman for pictures. (4) DICE MAN put in a sharp qualifier at the Meadowlands for his return to the races; main danger. (1) SCREAMING CONWAY took the pocket route home to victory in his Plainridge finale; watch out.

Race 6

(2) HIGH JOLTAGE scored wire to window last week and this gelding appears to be back to winning form; can repeat. (3) KANARIS moves back to the NW7500 ranks where he got the job done three starts back; big threat. (1) STOMPIN TOM CREEK should fare much better from the fence.

Race 7

(2) MADHATTER BLUECHIP seems to be in a perfect spot to boss these trotters and with his tactical speed he can pick them up and lay them down for all the glory. (4) CLEMENTINE DREAM beat Preferred foes at Freehold last time out; can make some noise again. (1) GABE THE BEAR DEAN put in a mild rally for the show spot last out and the rail post should move him forward today.

Race 8

(4) SPIRIT SQUAD opened up a big lead and never looked back for the victory in her most recent outing. Trotting filly is versatile and figures to get a favorable trip to grab her second straight score. (3) GLOBAL REVOLUTION rallied strongly for an easy victory last week; main danger. (2) MASTER CLASS gets post relief and that should help his cause against these.

Race 9

(5) DYNAMIC EDGE is back to a flat mile where this trotting gelding just missed the victory by 3/4 length; can boss these with a well-judged drive from MacDonald. (8) CLOUD NINE HANOVER put in a mild rally for the show spot last time out; post hurts by he is very capable. (1) RIDGEWAY SPRINGS has some early trot and moves to the fence; don't overlook.

Race 10

(5) BENTLEY SPUR Philly invader is on fire scoring his third straight by open lengths. Trotter has 6 out of 8 victories this year and should keep on his winning ways against these. (1) OMAHA SET HUT showed life in his latest and should contend from the rail. (7) WILDFLOWER moves down the ladder but will have to get it done from the 7-hole; quite possible.

Race 11

(5) CRESCENT FASHION seems to have a fondness for the Hilltop and clearly is the class of this group; the pick. (2) JAYPORT ALL MUSCLE got the job done last out via the pocket route; main danger. (4) MADMAN HALL was on the lead most of the way but was nailed for win honors by Jayport All Muscle last time out.

Race 12

(4) STATION THREEOHSIX moves down in class off a good third against tougher last out. The last time this pacer got the job done was at this level on 8/16; gets the call. (1) WESTERN ALUMNI moves to the fence and that should put him right in the mix. (2) TWIN B FAMOUS is another with post relief and he could have a say in the outcome.
