RACE 1

3-Haveoneforme – Kadabra filly added trotting hopples for a sharp second qualifier chasing the classy Misslarose, makes her long awaited debut in a soft spot for Nifty Norman

 

6-Hammer Creek – Just one for 25, but hinting of an overdue score with strong on-the-board finishes in his last four, his latest in :27.3, capable of blasting past them all

 

2-Ab’s Royal Punkin – 4YO mare draws well again to end her 0 for 20 skid, lively efforts in her last two & just missed with a nice late surge two weeks ago

 

RACE 2

2-Parkin In Heaven – Made up for a very slow start from post nine with a hard-charging rally & just missed in her first start south of the border & now moves inside

 

1-Backseat Terror – Tracked perfect second over cover, while pace compromised & settled for fourth again last week, tighter & acclimated & working on snapping an 0 for 22

 

9-You Should Be Here – Beaten heavy favorite fought off some late pressure & was barely outsprinted by a surprising Silk Reed, a solid second before that, post nine assignment hurts

 

RACE 3

1-Delcrest Holiday – Guess what folks?  Team Burke is back & this 4YO returns fresh off a narrow loss with a gutsy effort from post eight second time Lasix & moves inside to anchor a strong entry

 

5-Just For You – Caught a few of us off guard with that powerhouse career best blowout last week & got his barn off the schneid, let’s see if he can duplicate that 

2-Opulent Yankee – Took advantage of a tailor made scenario when the heavy favorite Rubber Duck broke & was able to steal away uncontested, now moves inside for the step back up

 

RACE 4

7-Northern Swift – Hit the board in two of her last three, beaten favorite off a lively effort, now drops with tactical speed in her arsenal & not much to beat

 

2-Icommandmyspirit – Drops into an ideal spot, horse-for-the-course makes her third start off a sick scratch from an inside post & several of her opponents can easily be eliminated

 

10-Tearful Of Happy – Burke trainee has won two of her last three, but hasn’t raced in 36 days & tackles post ten, remains a serious contender in this weak bottom level field

 

RACE 5

1-Alvisi Hanover – Draws the rail fresh off a much-improved effort chasing Credit Fraud, 4YO added Lasix recently & eligible to carve out another ideal trip at a price

 

6-Credit Fraud – 4YO mare proved she’s for real with another sharp finish as the odds on choice 

last week, has a big chance to keep it going off that mile of her life

 

2-Lucky Sheila – This mare has been knocking on the door, just missed with a game first over effort two starts back, set the table for Credit Fraud last week & draws inside that rival

 

RACE 6

4-Blitz Victory – 5YO continues on a form spree, has kept it going since the 1:55.4 career best three starts back, strong finish chasing Opulent Yankee last week

 

2-Shady Mccoy – Wow, he really turned his game around with a first over crush from post eight when hammered down to 2-1 last week, rewarded with a better post to prove it was no fluke

 

5-Cash For Gold – Steps up a notch while on the board in his last four, grinded gamely for the place spot last week, can capitalize on his sharp form with an easier trip

 

RACE 7

2A-Believe In Me – Pelling trainee ramping up her game, fresh off a second to standout Penpal, closed from tenth to third before that, drops a notch & needs some sort of set up from post eight

 

1A-Talbot Chanel – Just one for 16 last season, yet the comebacker was strong chasing Stormtracker & the other half of the Burke entry gets class relief

 

5-Narcian Jewel – Credit Bill Mann who has this mare trending in the right direction, a solid runner up in her last two & has a chance to trip out from an inside post

 

RACE 8

4-Di Oggi – Missed almost four months, yet won the qualifier with plenty of trot despite a tough trip & draws well at a reduced level for his Ake Svanstedt debut & faces a wide-open field

 

3-Casino Cutie IT – This mare is ramping it up since the late December sick scratch, solid runner from post seven last week & draws well for another shot at this $15,000 level

 

2-Starsaboveallerage – 8YO veteran hit the board in two of his last three, lands an improved post, eligible to work out an ideal stalking trip & play a prime opportunist role

 

RACE 9

6-Muay Hanover – The grey hit the ticket in his last two with improved efforts, lands in a similar bottom condition match up, a smooth trip paves the way to an overdue win

 

3-Knightofvictory – Struggled to make a dent from outside posts in his last two, draws better to set up a stalking trip within closer range & snap a long losing skid

 

8-Cant U Spell – Thundered home from last to third in what amounted to basically his Big M debut, chance to build on that despite a tougher post here

 

RACE 10

9-Waltzacrossthewire – Second start off the Robert Lounsbury claim paid off with a more aggressive effort last week, post nine a hindrance, but remains at the bottom price

 

3-Urbanite Hanover – Struggled to be much of a factor in his last two @ Freehold, now dips from $12,500 down to $7,500 & draws inside with plenty of back class & speed to flaunt

 

2-Rock On The Hill – Has tailed off in his last three since the 1:52.4 upset in mid December, but now drops a notch & faces virtually a blank field from an inside post

 

RACE 11

2-Justcallmeronald – Capitalized on a perfect drive by Dexter Dunn & finished a solid second to Photo King last week, now has an even bigger post advantage on that rival from the rail

 

9-Photo King – Fresh claim off a dominant first crush from post ten last week, 12YO is on a roll right now, reunited with Corey Callahan & post ten again can’t stop him 

 

3-Bell A Chick – Rallied from a long way back to finish third, but broke across the wire last week, draws better this time as he continues to trend in a positive direction on the comeback trail

 

RACE 12

7-Seven Iron – Thought he might’ve been sitting on a good one & came up a flat fifth again, 4YO now drops a notch & still has a chance to step up in his third start off the bench

 

6-Mosconi Hanover – Dropped to this level & got going late to hit the board in an improved effort last week, gets another shot at this reduced level in solid form

 

2-Marion Gondolier – Dropped n popped with the mile of his life last week, draws the same inside post for the follow up & may be the sharpest of this group

 

RACE 13

8-Spanish Art – Drops back down to the $7,500 level & where he took a mark of 1:52.1 on 12-27, fought through the snow to finish second as the beaten favorite last week

 

4-Sports Cowboy – The Cowboy just missed two starts back, then launched another late bid to hit the board again last week, draws inside again with a two for 40 record to consider

 

2-One More Miracle – 10YO has been doing good, consistent work @ Monticello recently, returns to the mile track here with an inside post & long losing streak to snap
