MEET STATS: 442 - 1266 / $2,441.00

BEST BETS: 57 - 104 / $193.70

Best Bet: TACO TUESDAY (7th)

Spot Play: DON LINDY (10th)


Race 1

(4) SOUTHWIND TERROR has been very good in his last few and I don't think he loses anything on the barn change here; top billing. (1) MAGIC MANNY plunges in class, draws best and it's not like he's been racing horribly; big threat. (3) AUCKLAND FLYER makes his third start at this reduced level and he could save ground to land a share.

Race 2

(2) NORTHERN DALI has been sharp in all her recent efforts and the post relief obviously helps. (1) ARABELLA J draws best and is in line for a winning trip. (5) COOL DESIRE  was an easy winner in his second start for Clegg.

Race 3

(6) BETTERLATETHNNEVER was third best last week to two tough rivals and the Allard trainee appears ready to score. (2) TRIPLE SEELSTER just missed at this level two back and the Banca trainee picks up Bartlett today. (3) MARTY MONKHOUSER A was an upset winner when in with this type but he loses Zeron today; use caution.

Race 4

(4) BACKUP A hasn't done much in recent starts but he faces his softest field in some time and appears capable of awakening. (2) TWIN B FAMOUS has forgotten how to win but the veteran does fit with these. (5) LIFE UP FRONT is a shell of his former self but his best effort can get it done.

Race 5

(1) MARTIAL BLISS was narrowly defeated by rival (6) WHAT I BELIEVE last week; sharp sort can turn that tables with the post advantage. The latter is arguably in career form and certainly would be no surprise if he took another. (3) HANDS OFF FRANK can save ground and land a minor share.

Race 6

(4) BEE IN CHARGE was a big earner this season up in Canada and he was held together nicely in that qualifier last week; 3-year-old could be ready for action. (5) MADMAN HALL has been second best 12 times this season; why not again? (9) SOUTHERN CROSS has been razor-sharp for Svanstedt but needs to navigate the second tier.

Race 7

(9) TACO TUESDAY brushed and absolutely crushed in his second start for Milici; as long as he minds his manners he can easily repeat. (5) IRON ships from Plainridge and debuts for Team Miller; consider. (3) DUPREE faces a bit tougher here for Marcus Melander, who has had a very nice season locally with his trotters.

Race 8

(4) SHADY MCCOY qualified willingly for his debut for the McDermott barn and this trotter likes to win with 11 tallies on the season. (5) BLOWNOUTOFTHEWATER raced well for a share upon arrival and the added distance may help his cause. (3) WHATA PEACH is a clear speed threat but needs to show more late.

Race 9

(9) MASS BALANCE kicked home very nicely last out but was too far back to threaten; with a smooth closer-up trip he can get there in time. (8) SCREAMING CONWAY keeps Zeron and seems to have the early speed to get good position; consider at a price. (4) ROCK THE BONES has been racing well at Philly and could do well here at this added-distance.

Race 10

(2) DON LINDY is another new addition to the Julie Miller barn and the lightly-raced 3-year-old could be ready to roll in his local debut. (8) OOH RAH has looked good in just two lifetime starts but he needs to find a way to get involved early from this spot. (10) BEST TURBO has made a very nice living at this level; for a share.
