MEET STATS: 116 - 591 / $817.20  BEST BETS: 13 - 51 / $55.20


Spot Play: AMALFI COAST (3rd)


Race 1

(1) APP HEAVEN stayed in the 3-hole most of the way and put in a strong run in the passing lane, but was not going to catch the 4-5 chalk Yankee Heaven in last week's event. Determined to get it done. (5) KOLT POWER is a Philly invader that raced well on 6-28, where he was quite tenacious; threat. (7) FRANKANDJOANNE was last seen here on 5-12 and stayed second throughout that trip; fits with these.

Race 2

(1) ELIAS JOY is a 10-year-old trotter that was shuffled back to dead last most recently. With that said, he is back to the $5,000 ranks where he closed nicely for third; quite playable. Canadian shipper (4) ALEXANDER LUKAS has been on the board in 8 of 21 starts and has tactical speed based on his 6-23 trip at Georgian Downs; contender. (6) NORTHERN ESCORT came out of the same race as Elias Joy; showed some early zip but folded badly along the rail as the 2-1 chalk; needs a quick turnaround.

Race 3

(4) AMALFI COAST deserves an A for effort. Revved up first over from 8th to 2nd, briefly enjoyed the lead in the stretch, but could not hold off Brickyard Toots and Jackie Goldstein. Dangerous tonight with Brennan for the return call. (1) CANDY STASH hasn't raced since April 14. Two qualifiers at Philly were very sharp; main danger. Great recovery from last to 5th for (6) MOVEMENT in her 6-30 outing; she figures to get involved with these.

Race 4

In (3) RILEYS DREAM's last start he was 6th, 9 lengths back of the leader Apostles Creed in the early going. She got the best of trips from the 8-hole when Volcanic Matter made a tough break on the backstretch and closed well to nail down the place spot. She has a cozy slot tonight; all systems go. (6) APOSTLES CREED led every step of the way, but faded in the stretch drive; needs to do more. (2) TROPICAL STORM N BI has scored in his last three trips to the post; watch out.

Race 5

(6) HENNI did not let his fans down on 6-16 with a down the road victory. Took her trade to Goshen last out and raced well up there; threat to repeat here. (1) BUNDLE ME UP was kind of sharp in his Goshen race with a second-place finish; the rail should give him some confidence if he mind his manners. (2) HERCU LINDY was in the pocket and took a tough break at the half, ending his day; rebounds?

Race 6

(7) CHUCARO ACERO BC was 6th in the early stages of the race, first-up on the backstretch, and got the lead briefly but was nailed by 90-1 Arrow on 7-7. Pacer is capable of getting the job done with a favorable trip. (1) SIR SAMS Z TAM came out the same race as the top pick and stayed evenly throughout. He could have a say with his return to the rail slot. (2) SPORTS BETTOR is a  Canadian shipper that was caught for win honors in his most recent try; watch out.

Race 7

(4) WESTERN PIONEER came out the gate like a shot to grab a slight lead but the hot fractions put him in deep waters. He did not disgrace himself holding third money; ready to fire his best tonight. (7) WISHING YOU WELL was odds-on last out and got the job done down the road; main danger. (6) EDWARD TEACH was very sharp at Philly with a second-place finish; watch out.

Race 8

(4) MONROE COUNTY was off the radar screen in her most recent trip to the post, but the good news is she gets well deserved post relief and that should help her cause. She had post 2 three trips ago and rallied strongly for win honors. (6) FIRE IN THE CELL was first up on the backstretch but faded to 5th in her latest; could improve with a favorable trip. (1) DREAMSTEELER finished with sharp early trot to almost nail Jesses Story in her latest;  consider this gal in your exotics from the fence.

Race 9

(5) SIM BROWN was completely out of it in his last trip. Gelding flashed some speed on 6-20, so with that said, he drops a notch in class and has every right to mow these down with a meltdown of the early leaders. (1) WESTERN CREDIT took the lead and sat in the pocket the entire trip but could not get to the winner Orange Bigi; contender. (3) SCOTTISH CROSS is a 10-year-old miss that took a vacation to Pocono on 7-1 and made it a winning one for her second straight score; not out of this.

Race 10

(8) WYGANT PRINCESS posted two solid efforts recently; sat in the three-hole and tried to come through on the fence but was not close to the winner. The post hurts but she is very capable of taking these to task. (5) CRESCENT FASHION comes off an easy victory against lesser at Pocono last out; figures in here. (4) A LIST LINDY put in a first over victory in her last try; right in the mix again; beware.

Race 11

(6) SS POSEIDON took a first-up bid on the backstretch to miss by a length last time out. Trotting sophomore can put his best foot forward considering he has three sharp efforts in a row. (1) ESKIMO JOE has scored two in a row at Saratoga, now returns to Yonkers where he got the job done on May 21st; big player. (4) JUSTIN ON BROADWAY ships in from Philly and has good early trot; don't overlook.

Race 12

(6) ALLBEEF N NOBULL moves into the Ron Burke barn and he pushes the down button on this 3-year-old pacing colt. Solid effort for third in the Hempt consolation at Pocono last out. At his best, he'll boss these. (1) RESPECTABLE DREAM put in a even finish for fourth at the Meadowlands recently; could contend from the fence. (3) PARKLANE EAGLE showed sharp speed last out but tired in the stretch drive and had to settle for the show spot; factor in here.
