1          Major Syn – Sister to Wilson winner Armbro Bombay, 1:50.1 [$575,131], rode the favorite’s live cover & just missed with a mighty late surge in a sparkling 3YO debut, big threat from the pole


7          Dustlanemissmolly – Seemed on the verge off the strong speed try & narrow loss two starts back & delivered the upset with a superb Vinnie Ginsberg drive, once again her gate speed puts her in play


6          Sandy Win – Tony Alagna trainee scratched sick last Fall & returning from a five-month layoff, her latest qualifier was much better & makes her a contender right off the hop



2          So Take That – Popular item & dominant force against the $10,000 class, fresh claim by Vincent Fusco, Jr. off a dominant 1:51.4 mile draws inside & stands out for Hurricane Hannah


3          Ideal Race – 11YO was relentless first over & took advantage of the late breaker Who Do You Like to score a mile upset last week in his debut for trainer Kyle Spagnola, draws well to repeat


10         Sir Jake’s Z Tam – Forced wide off cover & just by a neck again last week with another gallant try, just one for his last 38 & moves outside, yet remains a razor sharp prospect right now



6          Amalfi Coast – Beaten favorite tipped wide off cover & rallied to hit the board behind a well-rated Windsun Fireball, this gelding has come around & has a chance to atone


8          Trotalot – Trotted plenty with speed at both ends in a game narrow loss to Windsun Fireball last week, 10YO parlayed his confidence-building win @ Saratoga before that & now faces a more demanding draw


10         Windsun Fireball – Added Roy Marohn who carved out a front-end masterpiece from the rail last week, obviously post ten is much tougher, but this gelding is on his game



3          Vita Bella Bi – Sister to Crys Dream, 1:54 [$997,378] & Brigham Dream, 1:53.2 [$639,280) draws well fresh off an excellent 3YO debut, came up a neck shy with a crisp :27.4 for Team Orange Crush


5          Cinnamon Prayer – Rebounded with a well-controlled speed try by Campbell & just missed, this filly is learning her lessons well & may attempt the aggressive route again


1          Chapter Too – She was a very good third to repeat winner Aplomb Hanover in her 3YO debut here & lands the rail again to show more, dam is a sister to Leader Of The Gang, 1:55.2 [$615,713]



6          I’ll Have Another – Was finishing with pretty good energy last week when saddled with another tough post, his persistence & the right trip could put this one across at a decent price


7          I’m Looking At You – Displayed speed from post eight to secure position, went from second to fourth, yet was still digging in to the wire, another demanding draw here & just one for 18 


9          Uncle Leroy – Former King of the Ohio Fair circuit got nosed out in his debut here on the engine, then made an early miscue last week, now moves outside & can use his speed to overcome that obstacle



6          Crazy About Pat – Classy gelding was much better in his third start off a sick scratch @ Pocono last out, finds a prime spot to flaunt his speed & seriously content


7          Opulent Yankee – All set to cap off an excellent, resurgent month of March, gets away from a raging Melady’s Monet, versatile gelding can leave, gain control or stalk the speeds to his inside


3          Appomattox – 8YO has clearly regain his winning edge with two straight blowouts, steps up with renewed confidence & maybe be able to handle the double class hike



2          Analyze – Emerged from a shuffle & finished with a purpose to hit the board behind the dominant Penpal last week, lands post two again off that superb acclimating mile


3          Mosquito Blue Chip – Looks poised to step up fresh off a pace-controlling score in her second start off the bench, classy mare draws the same inside post & aggressive handling is expected


7          Not Before Eight – Beaten favorite just missed with a furious charge two starts back, then was out of position & had some stretch traffic last week, dangerous with the class drop



4          Windsong Illusion – Qualifier on a frigid day @ Monticelo with a -3 variant is tough to gauge, rallied to beat much better here back on 2-3, so this sets up as a prime spot to stalk n pop


5          Hot Summer Knight – Finally gets some much-needed class relief after several futile attempts against tougher, this gelding is capable of speed & note the bottom level blowout back on 2-16


7          Kolbee’s Star – Drops back down to a competitive level, finished a close second back-to-back last month & expected to be on or near the lead in this lighter match up



6          Makers Mass – Fresh off an excellent debut here for Team Orange Crush, rallied for second in a strong :27.4, logically expecting this gelding to offer more at the same level


7          Majestic Mistress – This mare has been doing fine work against tougher N/W 6 opposition @ Yonkers, fresh off a couple of solid seconds there, we’ll look for her to be forwardly placed


2          Big Bill Breeze – Finished off his 2016 season with two straight on the board finishes, qualified well, draws inside, gets class relief & can’t be dismissed despite the layoff



4          Battle Mage – This mare has been razor sharp in two starts off a sick scratch with a nose loss & strong upset, gets another class hike, but this is a highly suspect field


5          Montalbano Bi – Beaten favorite made an inexplicable break last week, willing to forgive that rare miscue, was on a long form spree before that for Team Harmon, ideal spot to rebound


3          Sheer Flex – Returns off the double sick scratch & winning qualifier for a new barn, won two in a row here earlier this year & lowered her mark to 1:54.1, draws well as a fresh threat



1          Mcace Of Arts – Team Harmon-tuned mare has been sharpening her sword against tougher mares, fresh off a solid third from the rail, has a big chance to do the class drop n pop here


5          Keystone I Wish – Came to life just before getting claimed by Vincent Fusco, Jr. & has simply kept it going with three straight wins all in convincing fashion, her latest a career best 1:53


7          Victoria May N – Dropped to this bottom condition level & finished a decent fourth with a :27.3 final quarter, gathering steam on the comeback trail
