RACE 1

2-Lothario – Well-bred Muscle Hill colt just missed with a nice late move in his debut, then made an early miscue, lands the rail again in a soft opener

 

1-Iron Dome – Chapter Seven gelding aired it out with a 1:55.1 @ Harrah’s Philadelphia this Fall, so has some talent & potential & freshened up by Team Harmon

 

9-Break Free – Consistent gelding finally broke his maiden in fine style, may have the confidence now to find a way into it despite post ten

 

RACE 2

3-Quick Deal – Offered some decent late trot over an off track in his first start off the bench, former 1:51.4 performer here is tighter now & drops into a soft spot for Team Harmon

 

6-Clifton Beach – Got to toss his latest chasing a 1:54.4 winner, a close second before that from post nine & returns to the bottom level

 

8-Sibson – Just one for 22 this season, draws a tough post, but drops substantially from N/W of 5 @ Pocono & could surprise this wide-open crew

 

RACE 3

1-Jaded Dream – Team Burke trainee arrives off several no-chance trips, gets class & post relief & sports a high winning percentage & worth a shot in a wide-open field

 

5-Misqued – Her lone win this season came here when she stormed home to win the NJSS Final on June 2nd, needed to re-acclimated, drops significantly & retains Brett Miller

 

7-Lady Of Heaven – Worked her way up to N/W 5 in Pennsylvania, closing type figures to like the long stretch here & ships in first time Lasix

 

RACE 4

5-Stardust Memories – Recent Team Harmon ships in fresh off a solid second @ Pocono & figures to be forwardly placed in this field ripe for the taking

 

4-Real DJ Hanover – Horse-for-the-course maintaining decent form recently, lands at the bottom

level here, draws well & adds Andrew McCarthy

 

7-Michael’s Wild Boy – A close second @ Harrah’s Philadelphia two starts back spells form & this gelding has been a winner here the past two seasons

 

RACE 5

4-Fox Valley Cadet – Fresh threat for Team Harmon, strong in the win column, draws inside with controlling speed & solid recent form @ Pocono & Vernon Downs

 

5-Southern Sport – Classy 10YO with a history here drops in for a tag here, out of striking range in his last two, returns to the mile track where he can launch one big late move

 

2-May I Cruise West – Must respect the sharp recent form & speed in series action @ Plainridge, inside draw here facilitates the quick start he prefers

 

RACE 6

3-Cundalini – Gelding ships in fresh off a surprising wire-to-wire effort @ Plainridge, draws well, priced right & not much to deal with

 

9-Intrigued Intended – Was well-rated under constant pressure & held well for second in a G Notes Final, rates highly despite the tougher post

 

7-Fly’n With Royalty – Went all the way to grab the biggest slice of the Pumpkin Pie @ Freehold, demanding post, but this hot gelding demands a long look

 

RACE 7

5-Gold Medal Swan – Shipped from the WEG circuit, landed in the Silva barn & couldn’t quite get to the classy & well-rated Master Of Law, primed for another big effort

 

6-P L Icabod – Sports a 1:55 mark here, was right there in the photo with Gold Medal Swan last out & remains a hug threat at a reduced level

 

8-Lauderdale – Classy horse-for-the-course drops further, recent miscues at the gate & demanding are concerns & long overdue

 

RACE 8

3-Roll N Catch – Flashed plenty of late pace trying to close from last, 1:52.4 winner here this season seems to be trending in the right direction & draws better

 

2-All It Takes – Interesting newcomer & fresh Team Burke acquisition displayed speed & held second with Ron Burke fine-tuning, draws inside a bottom level G Notes division

 

6-High Octane N – Owns a winning history here, three nondescript starts on the comeback trail, drops to the bottom condition & capable of kicking home off the speed

 

RACE 9

7-Bettor Chill Out – Stormed home from a tough spot to grab second @ Pocono last out, major horse-for-the-course with some back class makes second start off bench

 

3-Fire N Diamonds – Sharp mare shipping in from Plainridge with high winning percentage & fresh off a game effort, draws inside & picks up Gingras

 

1-Well Shaded – Just one for 31 this season, third behind Fire N Diamonds last out @ Plainridge, lands inside for trainer Jackie Greene, who has done well here

 

RACE 10

4-Cardiac Fashion – Beaten favorite was a better third last out @ Harrah’s Philly, drops even further here & debuts for the Burke Brigade from an inside post

 

6-Moonlight Ransom – Chased a revved up runaway winner @ Freehold, 0 for 29 in 2017, but third try off the bench for Bongiorno barn

 

1-Quality Bud – Lands inside again fresh off a solid third first time Lasix, 1:51.3 winner here this season just one for 29 in 2017, yet has a chance to trip out

 

RACE 11

6-Kotare Yael N – Fresh off an excellent debut here, fired out from post nine, shook loose late & just missed in a photo, now drops a notch

 

10-Ideal Matters – Burke trainee looking to rebound off a dull mile @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, was more engaged before that, look for Gingras to blast off against this easier group

 

1-Ring Warrior – Gelding with a winning record here drops & moves inside, retains Bionic Man & speed puts him in play
