Best Bet: WISHING YOU WELL (1st)

Spot Play: FIRE IN THE CELL (10th)


Race 1

(4) WISHING YOU WELL returns locally off some decent tries at The Meadowlands and and jogged when last seen here; logical. (5) REGGIANO hails from live connections (Burke/Brennan) and will be forwardly placed. (3) POWER BALL ships north from Harrington and he should fit okay here.

Race 2

(6) GIANNI looked smooth as silk in his blowout win last out; if he stays trotting, he wins. (3) MASTEROFTHEWIND AS was second best to the top choice and could be second best again. (4) MUGSHOTS BRO qualified evenly for connections who have had local success wth trotters for some time now.

Race 3

(4) ROCKNTOUCH has been facing some decent stock out of town and he lands a decent post with the best driver in this tough-to-figure event. (2) UPPERCUTZ isn't a prolific winner but he is looking for two straight. (3) GOOD LUCK stopped badly last out at Philly but his prior efforts were decent.

Race 4

(8) RAISE THE CURTAIN was stuck facing more seasoned foes in his last two but prior to that he had taken two straight facing his own kind; only problem here is the eight hole but with an alert getaway he'll be tough. (6) MOJITO AS couldn't last the duration in her last race but do note she took three straight upon arriving locally and the mare is a big player here. (7) DONNIE DARKO has had some success recently over at The Meadowlands.

Race 5

(2) CELEBRITY FANTASY has some speed, a good draw, and was Sears' choice. (3) CREDIT CREATION has had issues facing NYSS foes but he jogged in his last two versus overnight foes. (8) CUTUP HANOVER was a big earner last season but has had issues this season; needs to stay trotting.

Race 6

(6) TONY CHEESECAKE faltered on the front end in his debut off the Banca claim; he's worth another try today, perhaps from off the pace. (3) AMERICAN TOWER needed last week's start and he should have more to offer, especially from this improved post. (4) HANDS OFF FRANK was no match for some tough ones last out upon arrival from Pennsylvania but this should be a better spot.

Race 7

(6) BOUND FOR FAME was nipped last week by a classy rival in a definite no-shame effort; veteran is certainly capable of rebounding. (8) ON THE PODIUM drops in class off a series of dull efforts but he's beaten better than these in the past and he should offer some value from this spot. (3) BIG BILL BREEZE is a steady check-earner for Lachance despite being winless on the season; MacDonald drives today.

Race 8

(10) HOORAYFORVACATION had no real chance last week but did finish belatedly; this one has back class and today's added-distance event should benefit his racing style. (1) DREAMSTEELER has been very consistent, with three near-misses in her last three tries; Bartlett could be looking to take these down the road. (6) LUKAS HALL has been lacking major punch recently but he could be a closing threat. (2) JACKIE GOLDSTEIN has been racing well if you throw out last week's break.

Race 9

(1) BRANDOS MUSCLE MAN finally put it together last weekand; he's classy enough to go back-to-back. (8) AS Y'ALL LIKE IT steps way up in class but was an impressive blowout winner in her debut for the Steffan Lind barn. (9) STITCH IN TIME kicked in sharply last out to just miss, also versus lesser but he's done well with this type in the past. This looks like a very competitive event.

Race 10

(10) FIRE IN THE CELL is another classy Garcia-Herrera trotter who I've been keeping my eye on. She gets a needed drop in class today and can be a smooth trip away from the winner's circle. (5) ALMAFI COAST went a big effort in his debut for Banca and is the one to beat. (7) MOVEMENT broke last out, made up good ground but it was too late; mare drops back to the level of her last win.

Race 11

(10) FLASHBACK has done lilttle all season but at least he had a bit of finishing trot last out. There is nothing to endorse here with any confidence and I can see some crazy stuff happening. Why not play some prices? (7) APRILSHOWERS has seemingly had some issues for years now but she can trot well when in the mood; qualifier was decent. (1) DIAMONDS R US clearly needs to stay trotting and if so she has a chance.

Race 12

(6) ALLBEEF N NOBULL enters the Burke barn off a solid effort in the Hempt consolation last out; this is a competitive event but he may be a touch faster than these. (2) CAVIART LUCA should be forwardly placed and close-up throughout. (7) MAXI BON closed nicely upon arrival and could kick home again at a price.
