MEET STATS: 18 - 81 / 169.40

BEST BETS: 4 - 8 / $14.60

Best Bet: DEWDLE ALL DAY (7th)

Spot Play: VIRGIL CAINE (2nd)


Race 1

(3) SIR ZIGGYS Z TAM Gelding is sharp based on his last two tries and figures to return to his winning ways. (1) V I P BAYAMA took the pocket route on his way home to victory last out at Freehold; threat for the repeat. (2) CLASSIC AMERICAN N gets post relief and that should help his cause; we shall see.

Race 2

(4) VIRGIL CAINE comes by way of the Meadowlands and seems to be coming around; at his best he can top these. (5) DON LINDY showed good speed but could not hold off the top two in his latest; dangerous. (1) IM LOOKING AT YOU just missed the score by 1/2 length; not out of this from the rail.

Race 3

(1) BEST TURBO was sent down the road in her latest for all the glory. Retains the fence and catches a weak group tonight; repeats. (5) MAJESTIC MISTRESS was very wide and broke turning for home last out; could atone. (7) CAROLINKIA Hopefully the three qualifiers in a row could have her cranked her up for this; maybe.

Race 4

(7) MASS BALANCE was uncovered the entire mile and folded last time out but the good news is he faces a weak group. So with a favorable trip he can get the job done. (6) MAJOR MATTER was caught very wide at the 3/4 pole and saved the place recently; big threat. (5) BEND IN THE RIVER is knocking at the door based on his last two trips to the post; watch out.

Race 5

(4) THE EMPIRESSISTER N Mare showed signs of life last out and she could be ready to fire her best against these. (3) GO FOR SAND Jersey invader might appreciate the half-mile oval and she does have tactical speed. (2) ELM GROVE INARUSH gets serious post relief; not out of this.

Race 6

(2) METATRON came down the center of the track and mowed them down for all the glory in his recent outing and the trotter can repeat despite the rise in class. (3) ONTHEROAD DE VIE Three straight in the trifecta puts this mare right in the mix with these. (1) INUKCHUK CHUCK raced evenly in his last try and should improve from the fence.

Race 7

(3) DEWDLE ALL DAY got the job done wire to window in her last start and this trotting mare seems to be in winning form to make it two straight. (7) DYNAMIC EDGE is another that scored down the road last week; post hurts tonight but he is capable. (6) PERFECT ROAD seems to love being in the exacta picture so he must be considered in all the exotic slots.

Race 8

(1) JUST BETTOR Sharp qualifier last out here and now this California invader will try to get back on the winning groove riding the rail. (3) IM A GIFT was on the lead most of the way but was nailed for win honors in his Florida finale; big threat. (4) MIGHTY PERUVIAN N moves down in class and this pacer has every right to be right in the thick of it.

Race 9

(4) SHADY MCCOY lost all chance when this trotter broke at the start but the good news is the gelding has done quite well so far this year so he has every right to atone off his last clunker. (5) ALVAREZ has wheeled off two straight victories and the hat trick is clearly not out of the question. (7) ARRAKIS is knocking at the door based on his last two trips to the post.

Race 10

(6) TWIN B SPEEDO Gelding is sharp enough to get the job done over these if given a favorable trip. (2) MYSHARONA BLUECHIP should be much better from the 2-hole and Kakaley keeps the faith. (4) RANSOM DEMAND takes a slight drop in class and Bartlett is back at the controls; beware.
