4          Windsun Brooklyn – Another promising Pat Lachance prospect, dam is a sister to Four Starzzz Shark, 1:47.4 [$257,267], qualifiers were excellent & she gets top billing fresh off the bench


3          Oneida Blue Chip – Tuned up with a couple of minor shares in the Weiss Series @ Pocono, sibling is Nefertitti Bluechip, 1:52.2 [$310,985], can conceivably trip out from a favorable post & break through here 


6          All About The Pace – Product of the NY Excelsior A Category won two of four last year, miscued in her 3YO debut off the solid qualifier, has the talent to rebound in a soft spot



1A        Southwind Woody – Snowstorm Hanover & What The Hill are two of Ron Burke’s four Hambo prospects, Burke said this Muscle Hill colt can trot with all of them, the qualifier was solid & post draw favorable here


2          Chapter Too – Went the aggressive route in her quest to repeat & fell a head shy to Angel Cindy into stretch headwinds, lands the rail again, giving Campbell some options with a live filly


7          Angel Cindy – Added Jim Marohn, Jr. & took full advantage of a tremendous drive to score a 37-1 upset, has to build on that from a more demanding post



2          Blush Hanover – Has continued to charge hard in last three, right there in there in the photo with Gweneeee J last week, moves inside, sets up her rally & banks on a faster pace


4          Gweneeee J – Steps up accordingly fresh off a gutsy wire-to-wire win after shipping north from Pompano, fought off a trip-sitting Keystone I Wish & keep in mind she raced as a high as the Open level here last season


1          Keystone I Wish – Art Official mare has been on a long form spree four-race winning streak snapped with a neck loss to a gallant & classy Gweneeee J last week, Mike Watson claim heads a strong entry



4          Exquisite Glide – Was a much better second last week after missing time prior to his previous start, lightly-raced gelding with some back class draws well to keep it going


8          Hot Summer Knight – Dropped n popped on the verge & delivered with a convincing knock out punch & lifetime best from post seven last week, steps back up in career form  


2          Winemaster Hanover – Regained his winning form at the bottom level two starts back & followed up with a strong second to Hot Summer Knight last week, beaten favorite draws inside on the way up



6          Panana Republic – This mare has come back strong with back-to-back seconds at this bottom condition level here, the latest from post eight, knocking on the door & may kick it in with Hannah Miller


4          B L Class Act – Classy 10YO gelding has definitely come around in his last three, parked the mile & still just missed last week at Freehold, draws well here to assert himself


7          Fox Valley Steffen – Twice a winner here this season, equaled his lifetime mark of 1:55 on 2-23, then faltered & scratched lame, so how are we supposed to gauge him after a 42-layoff?



6          Windsun Glory – Nine-time winner in 2016 won her last two of the season here & lowered her mark to 1:51.1 from post eight, fresh off excellent qualifiers she chased the monstrous Penpal in her 4YO debut


4          Inittowinafortune – Only two for 33 in 2017 is the itch, but off her back-to-back seconds here she wired weaker from post seven @ Harrah’s Philadelphia last week & we know she loves it here


5          Prairie Sweetheart – Undefeated 14-for-14 Florida-bred freak lost both qualifiers @ Pompano, but with a 1:49.1 mark @ The Red Mile there’s obviously enough talent here to extend her streak, an intriguing specimen indeed



1          Rock Of Cashel – 1:53 winner here last year forced to repeatedly bang heads in the heads in the Yonkers Open where he actually won back in February, this is a much more favorable spot


4          Sumatra – 0 for 11 this season, but everybody knows this classy gelding truly belongs on the mile track, draws well at a proper level & has a big chance to snap his skid


3          Watkins – 10YO gelding made the switch to the mile track & rallied from never-never land to hit the board behind Battle Mage last week, the inside draw & proper class insertion make him a prime candidate



5          Two Hip Dip – Took four starts to come around this season & exploded to win a GSY Final last week, horse-for-the-course continues to conjure up his back class


6          Shady Mccoy – 11-time winner in 2016 was hammered down to 2-1, rated kindly & couldn’t hold on last week, gets another shot at the rock bottom level for Team Orange Crush


10         Tac’s Delight – Classy 12YO has been on fire, jogged in his second start off a sick scratch, has now won two of his last three, has missed three weeks & draws outside, yet remains a contender



4          Rockers Alley – Got a bit of a shuffle, angled clear & just missed in a close photo last week, draws well again to work out another favorable trip & looks like a major threat here


2          Single Me – Beaten favorite tried an ill-fated first over move from post nine & finished a decent fourth after shipping from Florida after a 16-day layoff, draws much better off that tightening mile with some back class on view


3          Mac’s Secure – Her lone win this season came at the N/W $5,000 level back on 2-3, draws inside again off an impossible trip, but her latest form is questionable



3          Winwood Scout – Gelding equaled his mark of 1:55.1 here last season, sharpened his sword @ Yonkers recently, no chance from post eight there last week, could surprise this bunch


4          Big Bill Breeze – Rallied to hit the board as a prominent player again in his second start off the bench, draws well a little tighter now & has enough class to mow this questionable field down


7          Modern Mercury – She has been pretty productive @ Pompano for Team Harmon, notching four wins this season, fresh off a strong second in Florida, hasn’t raced in 24 days & draws a demanding post here
