BEST BETS: 5 - 10 / $18.00

Best Bet: LONG LIVE ROCK (4th)


Race 1

(1) ART FOR ARTS SAKE was a winner in Banca debut, will repeat with lucky rail draw. (5) REPORT FOR DUTY N qualified effectively for his 14-year-old campaign and should make a decent living at this reduced level. (4) AMASA AL has raced well in all recent and is tough to ignore.

Race 2

(6) HALL OF TERROR raced well last out in Banca debut, now gets to plunge in class; there's some legit ones in here but he gets top billing. (2) R CAAN seems better than he's been showing recently. (3) SOMETHING FOR DOC made some forward progress last out; it seems like just yesterday he was a Levy finalist.

Race 3

(4) STEVE SAID ships from Canada and makes his debut for the Allard barn; class-wise it looks like he can fit here. (3) ROLL WITH FRED keeps Sears off a decent effort and should be the one to beat. (6) JK ONAROLL finished very willingly last week for new connections.

Race 4

(8) LONG LIVE ROCK gets a big driver change to Zeron and he deserves top billing despite the poor post. (4) HEADSUP YANKEE should be forwardly placed from this spot. (6) OHOKA TEXAS N has performed well with better than these in the past.

Race 5

(1) STOMPIN TOM CREEK wasn't all that bad after an uncovered trip last week and the rail draw gives Dube tactical options. (5) SEA STAR was an odds-on winner at this level three back. (2) OK GORGEOUS ships in from Freehold after dominating lesser in his last two.

Race 6

(1) TRUE BLUE HALL was a game winner versus similar in his local return and he should be tough today from this spot. (3) MIDNIGHT LIGHTNING was a good second last out for Vallee, could be second best again. (2) TEAM CAPTAIN went well in his local debut for O'Sullivan and he'll never be far back from this spot.

Race 7

(9) NORTHERN OBSESSION had a solid three-year-old campaign and the mare deserves a long look here despite the missed time. (1) GET TO DOIN IT has taken his last two at nice prices and he can certainly win this but the value won't be there today. (3) CREDIT CREATION was an easy winner upon arrival.

Race 8

(4) KEYSTONE BODACIOUS flashed early speed, then was shuffled and finished with plenty last out; he's a smooth trip away from breaking through. (1) INSOMNIAC has burned money since arriving but he certainly hasn't been bad. (5) PARTY ON THE RIVER was improved last out giving a rugged uncovered try.

Race 9

(2) SHOEMAKER behaved himself last week and was second best versus better; he can be primed for big things today. (6) AGGRESSIVE jogged in his debut for Garcia-Herrera. (1) COUSIN EDDIE is up in class a notch off the Berkeley claim and he looks for four of five.

Race 10

(5) WHATNBLAZES qualified effectively for Abbatiello, who is off to a hot start in 2016; veteran is as good as any in here. (4) FICO has shown nothing in his two starts for his new barn but he was facing better when last seen here. (1) DIAMONDS R US is a proven entity at this bottom claiming level.

Race 11

(4) ALTERNAT THURSDAYS hasn't really fired recently but he has plenty of class and seems capable of awakening from this spot. (2) BLUEBIRD KIDSQUEEN has been better recenty for Abbatiello. (5) NOBLE ANTHONY kicked home nicely from a tough spot last out and should be a closing threat again.

Race 12

(4) MAURICE went evenly last out in a needed start for Lachance; there's no standouts here and with a favorable trip he can kick home nicely. (1) WINNING IS SWEET gets another crack at an inside post and seems capable of better. (8) SECRET DELIGHT is stuck outside again and I'm not convinced he's sharp enough to overcome it; use underneath.
