Race 1

(4) APP HEAVEN was sharp in his previous start; gelding is good enough to take this group down the road for all the glory. (5) DCS BETTER LIFE held on for the victory in his last try; main danger. (6) WE THINK ALIKE could grab a share of the purse.

Race 2

Canadian shipper (5) GS GRASSHOPPER should find these to her liking and gets the services of Brennan; seems ready to get the job done. (4) TALBOT HERCULES just got up for win honors last time out and appears to be a threat once again. (3) MADHATTER BLUECHIP might have pulled the trigger too soon last out; not ouf of this.

Race 3

(4) PASTAPALOOZA makes his return to Yonkers where he was a sharp third three starts ago. He took home the top prize at Batavia on August 30 and can do the same here with a good effort. (3) SO JUSTIFIED has speed; should contend in here. (5) BRUCES MAGIC was second best at Freehold last out; could be a factor.

Race 4

We shall see if (3) EXPLOSIVE ACTION can put it all together against this group. Trotter did take some action last out and with a favorable trip, he can win this. (6) DIAMONDS R US is knocking at the door based on her last two starts; watch out. (4) AMALFI COAST put in a nice qualifier on September 18; could have a say in the outcome.

Race 5

(3) TRADING PLACES made a bad break around turn number two last time out. Trotting miss has hit the board 12 of 22 starts this year and should rebound against these. (1) WILD SMILE retains the rail slot; has speed and could make some noise in the final stretch drive. (2) BAILEYS WISH has tactical speed and an inside slot; that could help her cause; maybe.

Race 6

(5) MASSIVE LIGHTNING posted an easy victory at Pocono last time out. He fits well in here and has every right to make it a double. (8) NORTHERN OBSESSION has been facing sire stakes foes; post hurts but she is very capable. (6) COIN COLLECTOR was second best in her last two starts; right in the mix.

Race 7

Let's take a shot with Hoosier invader (6) SECRET THREAT. The sophomore could prove best against these if he gets the right trip; we shall see. (4) YIPPITY HANOVER closed strongly to nail down the show spot last time out; main danger. (2) STOVER was very sharp in his previous four Pennsylvania starts; not out of this by far.

Race 8

(1) CHUCARO ACERO BC has put in two nice efforts and that might be an indication he is ready to get back into the winner's circle; ready tor action. (6) A BETTOR HAT seems to be in a perfect spot. (3) THE SPY put in a mild bid for the show spot last time out; could make some noise in the stretch drive.

Race 9

(5) MODEL BEHAVIOR just missed by only a length and a quarter last time around. With a favorable trip she can take these to task for all the cash. (2) DREAMSTEELER just held on for the score last time out; clearly a big threat again. (1) MAGIC WILL WORK moves up in class but was sharp in her last three tries here; beware.

Race 10

(4) WESTERN CREDIT posted an even finish in his last trip to the post and something tells me he might be ready for a better effort. With a fine-timed drive from Stratton, he can be the boss over these trotters. (5) PICTURE THIS displayed sharp speed at Philly for the victory in his previous outing; main danger. (2) TURTLE EXPRESS is better than his latest flop at Saratoga; could be an exotics factor.

Race 11

(3) GLOBAL ICE closed down the lane to nail down the victory last week; trotting filly can repeat against this group. (2) MISS BVILLE J is a very fast filly that will clearly be the one to catch and beat. (4) BIG RICH invades from Pocono and could find the half-mile oval to his liking; maybe.

Race 12

(4) MCKENRY was dull in his latest trip to the post and third best on September 1st, so maybe this pacer will get back on the winning track with a better post tonight.  (2) CAVIART LUCA put in a solid qualifier last week and appears to be ready to get back into the swing of things. (1) GOKUDO HANOVER flashed good speed and held the placing last time around; beware.
