RACE 1

6          Inspiration View – Burke trainee qualified evenly, yet did pace home in :27, returning from more than three months off & lands at the bottom level, might be too much for these to handle

 

3          Ari Allstar – Returns from almost four months on the sidelines, two qualifiers were nothing to write home about, but this is such a severe class drop he must be feared

 

2          Wild Again – Raced noticeably better from the same inside post last week, hitting the board for only the second time this season, faces some classy foes in this match up

 

RACE 2

2          Too Much Hanover – Has been very productive this season @ Freehold & shows a nice win there two starts back, difficult to gauge how he’ll make the mile track transition, yet the inside post helps his cause & Vinnie is driving great

 

4          Winemaster Hanover – Kicked off his year getting claimed in seven straight starts, returns from a 23-day layoff in a softer bottom condition & draws well, chance to regain winning edge

 

3          Possessed Fashion – Just one for 17 last year, won the qualifier with plenty of vigor off a sick scratch, then scratched injured, lands in a prime spot with more than his share of back class, but remains a question mark

 

RACE 3

2          Cherokee Ranger – Eric Foster claim dropped back to this level & tripped out with a strong win, going away in :27.2, stands out as a big threat to repeat from improved post.

 

1          Daylyn Horizon – Was trying to rebound off a dull sixth on 3-18 & got parked last week, drops back down to the level of his blowout win from the rail back on 3-3

 

8          UF Fast Feelin – Sharp Michael Russo trainee steamrolled first over, bothered slightly at the top of the stretch chasing Cherokee Ranger, was a well-driven winner before that, outside draw here a slight hindrance

 

RACE 4

1          Alex Bullville – Lively runner up to the red-hot So Take That last week, now a fresh claim, remains at the $10,000 level & draws the rail against a camera-shy bunch

 

7          Drunken Terror – Fresh claim by a barn that has done good work here, emerged from a shuffle to get nosed out with amateur David Yarock driving last week

 

6          Mr Big Load – Answered his usual marching orders, carved out reasonable fractions & faded to fourth last week, dips back down a notch & may show more stamina

 

RACE 5

3          Brocks Fortune – Mark Harder-tuned gelding off to a terrific start this season @ Freehold, ships here off a gutsy narrow loss, owns some back class, draws well & primed for the mile-track transition

 

4          Sky Is the Limit – Continued to struggle @ Yonkers with a seventh there on Tuesday, yet ships here with plenty of back class on view, an inside draw & retains Yannick Gingras

 

6          Twin B Scandal – 0 for his last 35, flashed some sneaky late pace in a much-needed acclimating mile, claimed by a productive outfit & lands in a soft spot

 

RACE 6

7          Alberto Contador N – Ripped it up here earlier this season, taking a mark of 1:49.4, returns off an easy win & solid third in his last two @ Yonkers, steady NZ bred gelding suits the mile track

 

4          Barimah A – The public pounced on the barn change, making him 2-1 favorite & he delivered with a first over crush & equaled his lifetime mark, poised to step up off that crushing score

 

6          Artistic Major – Graduate leg winner here in 1:48.1 from post eight last May, worked his way into two Levy legs, versatility, talent & freshness make him a serious factor here

 

RACE 7

1          Somesizesomestyle – 1:50.3 winner here this season has definitely come around since the sick scratch back on 2-18, runner up to the raging City Hall two starts back, set a pressured pace last week, gets class relief & ideal draw

 

5          Special T Rocks – Fresh off his win with a :26.3 two starts back he came right back with a bang up second to the raging Barimah A last week & certainly deserves a long look

 

4          Preparty – Team Harmon gelding ships back to the mile track off a no-chance mile from post eight @ Yonkers, ran into the standout City Hall in his last start here on 3-4 & draws well

 

RACE 8

7          Art History – Classy horse-for-the-course followed up a decent third to City hall on 3-18 with a well-beaten seventh last week, has license to rebound with class relief & reunited with John Campbell

 

6          Sentencing Memo – Bumped back up a notch on the class ladder fresh off a narrow loss, while grinding it out first over for a strong percentage barn, possible price play

 

5          Alexie Mattosie – Millionaire took full advantage of his fourth consecutive class drop with an easy romp, now hiked back up a notch & has missed three weeks, tough to gauge

 

RACE 9

8          Betting Exchange – Freshened with four months off, qualified with plenty of energy, returns at a reduced level & can handle the outside draw with his effective gate speed

 

3          Donau – Hammered down to 3-1 & suddenly exploded to a well-meant score last week, rewarded with an inside post & figures to handle the one-notch class hike with more of that new found vigor

 

6          I Like Dreamin – Perked up with decent speed & held third as the beaten favorite in his second start off the bench, bumped back up a notch as his back class & form continue to resurface

 

RACE 10

8          Legion Of Boom – Rallied to a decisive score on 3-18 fresh off the Eric Foster claim, then had no response when Barimah A blew them away last week, has a big chance to rebound despite another outside assignment

 

7          Unix Hanover – Consistent gelding finally broke through with superb rating by Corey Callahan & equaled his lifetime mark, a similar effort makes him a threat to repeat

 

5          Dateline Hanover – Romped in his first two starts here for the raging Team Buter, then stung by a hot pace on 3-18 & miscued last week, could be dangerous & rebound if able to gain control

 

RACE 11

2          L Dees Luca – Qualified with good vigor then chased a runaway Hallies Comet in a much-needed sophomore debut for Team Orange Crush, draws again to show more

 

1A        Major Key – Qualified with a winning rally here, then unleashed a blowout maiden score in his 3YO debut @ Pocono, has to do more work from post nine here, but has plenty to build on

 

3          Park It Park It – Was much better in his second start here as a distant runner up to heavily favored Hallies Comet last week, draws an improved post & heading in the direction
