RACE 1

3-Let’s Have A Party – $105,000 yearling flashed a :26.4 in her sophomore debut here on Lasix, then romped @ Vernon as the even money favorite, headed in the right direction

 

6-Misqued – Progressed nicely in the NJSS series & driven superbly by Steve Smith to a nose upset in the final, figures to be well within striking range to utilize her late kick again

 

5-Concerto – Unraced at two, this daughter of Bettor’s Delight has quickly found her best stride, tried to steal her latest with a :58.3 half & outsprinted by the favorite Dr J’s Kiss

 

RACE 2

7-Camturo Beach – Fresh claim by a barn that won a few races here earlier this season, grinded gamely to just miss last week & remains at the reduced price

 

1-Yacht King – Dropped to the $5,000 level, was aggressively handled & nailed late by the rail-skimming favorite, moves inside to be forwardly placed in lively form

 

6-Mr Julian – Cycled back around at the bottom condition level & went all the way in familiar style for the upset, Tom Merton may send again if he’s still at the top of his game

 

RACE 3

5-Honey’s Dragon – Rallied sharply from a tough spot to upset at the bottom condition level back on 5-20, chased a 1:51.2 winner last week & finds a softer spot here

 

4-Fly’n With Royalty – Only one for 20 this season, but has taken a few starts to adapt to the mile track, much-improved strong first over surge & held third last week at 42-1

 

1-Stormin Rustler – 13YO warhorse tripped out from the rail to score at the $5,000 level three starts back for his lone win of 2017, remains inside & in solid form

 

RACE 4

4-Gold Medal Swan – Draws much better off a no-chance mile from post ten & tries this reduced level again, just missed off the recent sick scratch from post eight two starts back

 

5-Sweet Justice – Classy gelding simply can’t be ignored as he drops another notch fresh off a solid third & can outkick the best in this match up

 

1-Modern Mercury – Team Harmon trainee has been pretty steady @ Pocono, getting some class relief to rebound off a rare break & draws the rail again

 

RACE 5

1-Love Tap Hanover – 0 for 12 this season, but has come to hand in his last three, rallied for third behind Twincreeks Jack into a :53.4 back half & may be within closer range from the rail

 

3-Uncle Lile A – Offered a late bid on the comeback trail second time Lasix, continues to tumble down the class ladder & draws inside

 

5-Twincreeks Jack – 8YO gelding has been on some kind of roll, stayed sharp with a qualifier @ Gaitway, then went all the way & dug in late for a gutsy post eight upset last week

 

RACE 6

5-Rockeyed Optimist – Notorious Big M lover has piled up his share of wins here, sharpened his sword with two straight blowouts in PA, the latest with a :53.4 back half @ Pocono, versatile gelding owns blinding speed

 

1-Mel Mara – 1:47 performer here in 2017 won his seasonal debut @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, then got nosed out by the classy Clear Vision in a :26.2 thriller, an even sharper target back inside & might be even tougher to knock off

 

3-Odds On Equuleus – This 1:47.3 performer here has clearly regained his edge for Tony Alagna with two straight vicious surges, closed into a :53.2 back half last week, things may set up nicely for his big kick in this competitive feature

 

RACE 7

2-City Hall – Back at the Big M he quickly regained his winning form & confidence with a brush n crush against easier last week, draws well & knows how to string them together here

 

5-Artistic Major – Graduate division upsetter here last season was freshened by Steve Elliott & came back with two sharp seconds as the beaten favorite elsewhere, appreciates the longer stretch here

 

4-Sippin On Suds – Got shuffled from the rail & was surging late while chasing a wrapped up Bettor’s Edge, team Burke trainee looking to build on that acclimating mile

 

RACE 8

2-Spicebomb – Displayed sudden & brilliant speed @ Pocono last out, returns here at a greatly reduced level, draws inside & has a big chance to outclass these

 

3-Misty’s Delight – Raced deceptively well in a much-needed first start for Ross Croghan with a

solid back half of :55.1, lands in a very soft spot for his second start off the bench

 

1-Daylyn Horizon – Capitalized on a perfect trip off a brisk pace to score the mild upset last week for the promising Christian Lind & rewarded with the rail

 

RACE 9

2-Machtu N – Shot home in :27.4 to romp in his Gaitway qualifier for the Nick Surick barn, returns from three-months freshening with some class & post relief in an intriguing match up

 

5-Jacksrluckytoo – Rallied to hit the board with his usual late vigor into a :54.2 back half last week, Team Harmon trainee always dangerous with the right speed set up

 

7-Sams Triple Crown – Was super sharp in his first few starts here, chased a heavily favored Last Gunfighter into a :26.2 final quarter last week, look for him to fire out for another trip

 

RACE 10

5-Pop’s Romeo – Tried to make up a ton of ground from far back last week, just missed three starts back, this gelding’s big kick could pay off in a wide-open field

 

9-Always Rock N Roll – Beaten heavy favorite lost a heartbreaker by a nose @ Saratoga, has come around for Al Annunziata & only needs to find a way into it from an outside assignment

 

2-John Dally – Whiffed as the heavy favorite in his first start for new connections @ Harrah’s Philadelphia after an okay qualifier here, chased the likes of Huntsville at two & has a big chance to rebound in a soft spot here

 

RACE 11

6-That’s My Harley – Just missed by a neck with a well-driven effort two starts back, flashed more speed last week, fully acclimated now & could be on the verge

 

5-Ville Valo – Beaten favorite got a bit too enthusiastic with his speed in his debut here, adds Lasix for his second start for new connections & third try off a sick scratch

 

8-Windsong Gorgeous – Classy 10YO offered some late life in his first start in four months, draws an even more challenging post, but may be ready to surprise this G Notes division
