RACE 1

3-None Bettor A – The Aussie import is back after making shambles of the opposition twice in sub 1:50 fashion, draws an improved post to tap into his potential further 

 

2-Always At My Place – Bounced back & tripped out to a 1:49.1 mild upset @ Pocono before getting parked in the Golden Receiver, stalks the speed from an inside post

 

1-Eddard Hanover – Note the solid third from post 12 in Leg #1 of the Golden Receiver & bad posts in his last three, kicks off a strong entry & in line for a better trip from the rail

 

RACE 2

2-Gold Orchid N – Love this gutsy NZ bred, barely outsprinted by the uncontested Caviart Ally in :25.3, moves inside from another smooth trip & could turn the tables

 

5-Caviart Ally – Flaunted her controlling speed & was able to rate the Preferred win last week, only the third start back for this classy & talented mare, so plenty more in the tank

 

4-Kissin In The Sand – Dan Patch Award winner who staged epic battles with Youaremycandygirl scratched sick in her second start back, Big M qualifiers were great

 

RACE 3

6-Western Exposure – Parlayed his winning comeback into a game grind & narrow loss to Caviart Rockland in :26.3, continues to soar for a raging barn

 

5-Best In Show – Hit the board from post ten with a sizzling :53.3 back half & :25.3 in his 3YO debut for Team Toscano, looms large with logical further improvement 

 

9-Caviart Rockland – Surged past Western Exposure to take a new mark of 1:50.3 as the favorite in a sparkling 3YO debut, huge threat to repeat despite post nine

 

RACE 4

4-Trump Nation – Took a new mark of 1:50 with an explosive burst two starts back, then was out of range in a :53.2 back half, just warming up & chance to atone with better start

 

3-Skyway Quinton – Nosed out by Somebaddude with a dreamy two-hole ride last week, nice rebound effort, big threat with a similar strategy from an inside draw

 

7-Mac N Cheese – Nailed Trump Nation with a wicked :25.2 three starts back, no chance in the Golden Receiver, then faltered on the lead @ Yonkers, chance to rebound

 

RACE 5

4-Atlanta – 2018 Hambo history maker & Trotter of the Year is back fresh off a track record comeback @ Miami Valley, looking to go two-for-two for Team Burke

 

6-Fiftydollarbill – 2017 Breeders Crown champion served notice by steamrolling to a awesome new mark of 1:51.3 last week & may be on the verge of some big things 

 

7-Six Pack – Fastest 3YO trotter in history & Dan Patch Award winner nosed out by world champion Homicide Hunter in his second qualifier, looks ready to roll

 

RACE 6

4-Democracy N – Vinnie Ginsberg did a great job grabbing second to standout Talent Soup last week, there’s some back class lurking here, long overdue & back inside

 

5-Shattered Glass – Suddenly took charge & went all the way for a new mark with Gingras, while living up to the tote action, big threat to repeat with a better post

 

3-Perseverant – Simply got too revved up on the engine & understandably tired last week, has a chance to rate a more reasonable pace from an improved post

 

RACE 7

3-City Hall – Rallied to upset similar here back in late February, notorious Big M lover returns in solid form with an inside post in a wide-open field, can’t fight City Hall

 

2-Sharp Action Money – Brushed to the front, had things his own way & gave way late last week, fresh & hot Team Burke trainee draws inside again as the one to beat

 

9-Wise Image – Dominated these all the way with a new mark of 1:50 two starts back, then just missed from post ten, razor sharp item looms large despite post nine

 

RACE 8

5-No Easy Day – Was pace compromised, yet stormed home off cover to just miss in a noteworthy Big M debut, 4YO on a form spree with lots to build on in a tough field

 

4-All It Takes – Beat these with a great drive & late surge two starts back, too far out of range last week, sets up another stalking trip from post four again at a price

 

6-Tivo Hanover – Hot shipper makes the switch from Yonkers where he just beat N/W 8 in gutsy style in the slop, speedy puts him in play & possible stalking position

 

RACE 9

1-Crystal Fashion – 2018 Hambo heat winner in world record 1:50.1 fresh off a $1 million season, second start off the bench from the rail in a field of several possibilities

 

7-Mission Accepted – Won his first three starts for Team Burke, just missed to Fiftydollarbill in a sizzling Big M debut, forwardly placed in a real handicapper’s challenge

 

4-Custom Cantab – 2018 Indiana Trotter of the Year ships in off two tightening miles with an inside draw, speed puts her in play & reunited with The Buckeye

 

RACE 10

1-Billy Badger N – Loved him last week with he erupted & swooped the field in :25.4 to take a new mark of 1:50.4, improving NZ bred rewarded with the rail for the double class hike

 

9-Mcthriller – Right there with an airborne :25.3 in a wild finish last week, needs another speed target from post nine & class relief makes him an inviting price play

 

5-JK Parlay – Gelding has gotten on some kind of roll this Spring, claimed by Eric Abbatiello fresh off a well-driven upset last week, has a chance to keep it going

 

RACE 11

3-JM Jack Of Hearts – Has been quietly acclimating against some salty opposition in his last two here, gets class & post relief while possibly on the verge in a competitive field

 

10-Statement Made A – Last week’s Best Bet paced into a :54.4 back half from an impossible spot, now deals with post ten, but the drop back down helps

 

2-Joe Joe Joe – Caught fire when he shipped north & added Lasix for a mild upset & close second before the no chance trip last week, class & post relief makes him a player here

 

RACE 12

1-Pinkman – Capitalized on a fresh form & soft fractions to steal the first leg of this series, beaten favorite with traffic woes in the Cutler, classy gelding back to the rail to rebound 

 

6-Trolley – Continues his season-long prominence here fresh off a gallant second in the Cutler, caught behind a well-rated Pinkman in Leg #1 & seeks revenge

 

4-New Heaven – Steady force in the Yonkers Open arrives fresh off a nice winning rally, his style suits the longer stretch here & could surprise

 

RACE 13

3-Duckies Dynasty – His form has cycled forward in his last few, no chance chasing a big favorite last week, 1:51.2 winner here this season draws better in a soft finale

 

6-Ideal Son – Go back to his big late move to hit the board in :26.3 three starts back as the 3-1 favorite, 1:51.4 winner here this season needs a similar set up

 

4-Astor – Tough to ignore the way he parlayed back-to-back wins @ Freehold into a sharp second from post nine here last week, better post makes him a stalking threat
