Race 1

(1) LEGENDS LUCK has raced decently here in the past and he draws best versus this suspect group. (2) RANSOM DEMAND blazed the way on the front end last week and folded; threat if better rated. (6) UPFRONT LORNE debuts for a barn that's had some recent success; Brett Miller drives.

Race 2

(4) NORTHERN DALI has been racing very well recently and may be due for a breakout performance. (3) GINGER TREE ALEXIS broke in her Milici debut but did qualify effectively afterwards. (6) CAROBBEAN PACETRY returns from Pocono off a solid try.

Race 3

(4) ROCK TO GLORY has plenty of class and can find a way to get the job done. (3) FLEM N EM N also has back class and does come off a win but the missed time is a concern. (1) BEAT THE DRUM debuts for the Milici barn, draws best and is an obvious threat.

Race 4

(6) DYNAMIC YOUTH raced pretty well last out considering he was used early and shuffled; another chance. (7) ROLLIN RING AFIRE is more new Team Milici stock and this one has ability. (3) YO CHEYENNE ROCKY gets some needed post relief and can be considered underneath at a price.

Race 5

(5) SWEET TALKIN SATIN ships from Delaware and moves into that Milici guy's barn; clearly good things can be expected right off the bat. (2) IN COMMANDO hasn't done much since being claimed for $30,000 but this looks like a better spot. (1) TWIN B FAMOUS is another one who has been underachieving and is tough to endorse on top; use underneath.

Race 6

(1) MADMAN HALL has quietly had a very profitable season for Schnittker and he was a solid winner three back at this level and this distance. (5) TRIUMPHANT'S CHIP likes to win and could fit well here. (2) DOUBLEDAY was second best to the top choice two back but he loses leading driver Jason Bartlett; his trainer handles the lines and he's proven competent in the past.

Race 7

(7) SOUTHERN CROSS has gone down the road in his last two starts, including a recent blowout win at this distance; Dube driving for Svanstedt is always a live angle. (5) TACO TUESDAY is yet another new addition to the Milici barn and this one has some minor stakes experience; he has missed some time however. (4) MISTER CLASS returns locally for Lorentzon looking for two straight but is facing a bit tougher.

Race 8

(3) DIAL A CHIC raced well in defeat last week and he raced okay in an added-distance event three back; MacDonald sticks with him and he draws well in this wide-open event. (5) PHAT STACKS looks like a legit speed threat for Buter. (4) LINDYLICIOUS is clearly better than she's been showing.

Race 9

(5) MASS BALANCE has been racing very well out of town without a victory to show for it; he could be a big threat here assuming he's ready for his new connections. (9) BEND IN THE RIVER won easily at Philly upon arrival from Ohio; he faces much better here but may have more to offer. (3) ELUSIVE ACTION is inconsistent but is capable on his best day.

Race 10

(7) MANHATTAN AS rallied well for a share at this distance two back and followed that up with a win; filly looks as capable as anybody in here. (5) TECH TITAN has ability but also a serious breaking problem; tough to use but also tough to toss out. (6) I'M LOOKING AT YOU could be forwardly placed from this spot.
