RACE 1

2          Sister’s Delight – Finished a pretty good fourth in her 3YO debut, dam is a sister to Darlin’s Delight, 1:49.1 [$2,901,926], flashed some talent at two, draws inside again to make the next logical step forward

 

5          My Candy – Took strong tote action in her return to the Big M & finished a nonthreatening third last week, just missed by a neck with a perfect trip back on 3-17, finds a prime spot to score

 

6          Sandy Win – Another experienced 5YO mare for Tony Alagna, finished a well-beaten fifth behind My Candy in his 5YO debut, previous qualifier was encouraging & certainly has license to improve

 

RACE 2

7          Shady Mccoy – A much-improved third when dropped to this level & second time Lasix in the slop, drops again & third start for Team Orange Crush could spell winning effort

 

6          Rose Run Quickley – Was a much better runner up when he tripped out against easier @ Harrah’s Philadelphia last Sunday, now tries the bottom rung back on the mile track

 

8          Panana Republic – Finished a solid second to a rejuvenated Winemaster Hanover after missing three weeks off a sick scratch, tougher draw here, but gets another shot at the bottom level

 

RACE 3

6          Gweneeee J – Took a mark of 1:50.1 here last season when she earned $100,000 & raced as high as the Open class, ships north off a sub par stint @ Pompano, gets a big chance to regain her winning edge at this reduced level

 

5          Blush Hanover – Launched a premature bid & flattened out fourth last time, just missed with a hard-charging third before that in :26.4, more class relief could put her across

 

4          Mcace Of Arts – Team Harmon trainee has gradually ramped up her game in her last three, beaten favorite ran into a buzzsaw Keystone I Wish last week, remains a threat here

 

RACE 4

1          Trotalot – Got bumped into turning for home chasing the runaway Detroit Rapper last week with a strong effort from post eight, just missed by a head to Windsun Fireball before that, major threat on the rail

 

5          Detroit Rapper – Rebounded from a miscue on 3-10 with a dominant score last week with Logan Powell, horse-for the-course makes his third start off the claim with plenty of back class

 

6          Windsun Fireball – Left alertly from post ten to grab a pocket ride, cut inside a pylon & gained unfair advantage, stole one on the front end before that, look for him to be forwardly placed again

 

RACE 5

4          Skaterly – Got off to a promising start late in his freshman season, draws well fresh off a superb qualifier over an off track allowing two seconds, looks like one of the deserving standouts here

 

1          Chapter Too – Have to be impressed by this filly’s outstanding second start off the bench in slop last Friday, lands the pole again & continues to build on what could be a stakes season

 

2          Romancing Rachel – Team Burke-tuned Muscle Hilly filly had some minor stakes success at two, won the qualifier with plenty, lands post two again & may be headed for better

 

RACE 6

6          Penpal – Runner up in last year’s Matron couldn’t have looked any better steamrolling first over & dominating her 4YO two weeks ago, she’s headed for some major action

 

7          Truth And Liberty – Has now won her last four starts here, made a triumphant return to the Big M with a decisive 9-1 upset in the slop last Friday, looks like the prime focus

 

4          Windsun Glory – Polished off her 3YO season with back-to-back wins here in December, while lowering her mark to 1:51.1, draws well off two excellent qualifiers making her a threat right off the hop

 

RACE 7

8          Melady’s Monet – Dominant winner here back-to-back & fresh off the bench was forced to chase Muscle Diamond first over @ Pocono as the beaten favorite, primed to turn the tables back in the mile track

 

7          Muscle Diamond – Reverted back to controlling speed & cruised over heavily favored Melady’s Monet @ Pocono, has been very consistent since coming back from long term injury this season

 

5          Opulent Yankee – Was able to intimidate an inferior feature field in the slop last week, nobody was willing to pull & challenge, has been on a form spree, yet this a real test against some formidable foes

 

RACE 8

4          Fashion Creditor – Took an overly ambitious shot @ Muscle Diamond & company @ Pocono & didn’t race badly, tighter now & returns in a softer spot, but this field is very competitive

 

2          Its Payday Friday – Took a few weeks to regroup off the late break on 3-17, got away with a :58 half & held off Battle Mage last week, lands post two again as the main target again

 

3          Montalbano Bi – Worked out a perfect second over trip but was pace compromised when Its Payday Friday was allowed to steal away last week, draws inside to stalk any speed again

 

RACE 9

6          Dustlanemissmolly – Came right back to win again in the slop given another aggressive drive by Vinnie Ginseberg last week, looks like the one to beat against this camera-shy bottom condition crew

 

1          Geisha Girl N – Newcomer ships in & changes barns, recent form has been okay, missed a month prior to her last start, has a bit of back class, can fire out from the rail & surprise this wide-open field

 

2          Mac’s Secure – 1:53.1 winner here earlier this season been racing well @ Freehold, draws inside to work out a stalking trip at a competitive level

 

RACE 10

9          Ataboy Hanover – Lively up the favorite’s hype when he rallied stoutly in :27.4 to win his debut, makes the logical move forward off that sparkling debut, but post nine won’t be a picnic

 

4          First Class Filly – $155,000 yearling qualified nicely on Lasix & draws well, but that was three weeks ago, dam is a sister to Caprice Hill, 1:52.3 [$992,401], may need one or two

 

8          Southwind Pearl – Beaten favorite made steady progress from post nine & hit the board behind the impressive Chapter Two, 1:55.4 winner here last season will certainly need more from another tough post

 

RACE 11

7          Big Bill Breeze – The qualifier was strong enough & clearly needed his first start back, he’s been pretty strong in the win column, eligible to improve at a price

 

1          Stitch In Time – 0 for eight this season, moves inside off a no-chance trip from post eight, horse-for-the-course in line for an ideal stalking trip from the rail

 

10         Starsaboveallerage – Added The Buckeye & responded to a perfect drive to trot the mile of his life at 6-1, will need more of his tactical speed to pull off a repeat from post ten
