RACE 1

8-Shady McCoy – Stormed home to shock tougher N/W $8,500 types fresh off the bench on 3-10, gets significant class relief & that may be enough to overcome post eight

 

4-Fox Valley Steffen – Rallied from outer space to just miss in his last two for Jennifer Lappe, draws a bit better & appears on the verge

 

9-Wild Smile – Nailed him last week when he rallied out of a lively flow with a bigger kick, current A-game form & back class could spell repeat despite the outside draw

 

RACE 2

2-Opulent Yankee – Scored off a 35-day layoff beating stablemate Gural Hanover on 3-9, then was able to steal an easy repeat, clearly lands in an easy split of a series that seems tailor made for him

 

4-Filled Donut – JL Cruze connections ship in a steady 4YO in excellent form, on the board in seven of eight this season@ Dover Downs, versatile & upside potential

 

6-Di Oggie – 4YO has been very good in three of his last four, placed second chasing Opulent Yankee last out, a sharp opportunist looking for the favorite to falter

 

RACE 3

7-Majestic Sunset – Runner up to an exceptionally sharp Glenferrie Dreamer last week, lightly-raced 5YO has come around & hits rock bottom

 

3-Neverdie – Was freshened & makes his second start off the bench, 9YO with solid numbers last year gets class & post relief

 

4-Sweetchap – Dover Downs shipper got a better result in his second start at a reduced level, owns a mark of 1:55 taken here last season & draws well

 

RACE 4

3-Perseverance – Added Lasix & won his last two with a much-improved late kick & arrives fresh off the mile of life, JL Cruze connections have a 4YO who can step up further from an inside post

 

2-Sutton – Was a stellar 3YO in 2016 when he finished a close third in the Hambletonian Final, qualified with plenty of vigor after more than two years on the shelf & draws inside for Team Orange Crush

 

6-Royal Becca J – Open class competitor @ Dover Downs was much better when he hit the board with trot at both ends last time, big chance to build on that in a wide open division

 

RACE 5

4-Classy Chapel N – Added Lasix recently & just missed with a sterling rally two starts back, too far out of striking range last week, draws inside again for her fourth try off a sick scratch

 

1-Brunhilda – Has hit the board in three of her last four, runner up to a standout Rockin praline last week lands the rail to stalk the speed

 

7-Julio’s Girl – Easy winner in this class back on 2-23 left alertly, had some stretch traffic & finished well behind Brunhilda last week, rates contender status from another challenging post 

 

RACE 6

7-Jack Vernon – Beaten favorite fresh off a tough, narrow loss into stretch headwinds last week, added distance winner @ Yonkers before that for Team Orange Crush the major danger despite the outside assignment

 

1A-Montalbano Bi – Recent Team Burke claim rebounded off a rare miscue with a decent effort from post nine, adjusting to his new barn & half of a strong entry

 

6-Golden Son – 10-time winner last season arrived in sharp form, surged to command, retook the lead & settled for third, nice acclimating mile, may work out a stalking trip

 

RACE 7

3-Bee In Charge – Just missed in his first start off the bench @ Pocono, returns here at a reduced level with another inside draw

4-Scirocco Jakob – Landing on the fringes with decent kick in his last few, class relief & inside draw may put him across for an overdue tally

 

5-Possessed Fashion – Gelding with some success here in the past almost went all the way in a solid qualifier, strong numbers last year & could surprise fresh off the bench

 

RACE 8

4-Do Your Job – Forced into a double jump up in class off an easy win in a sparkling Big M debut, yet owns enough back class & draws well to loom as a threat to repeat

 

7-Talbot Chanel – Struggled in the Petticoat Series @ Yonkers recently before making quick work of much easier @ Pocono Downs, a good boost of confidence, Team Burke trainee owns a mark of 1:53 here

 

10-Cheyenne Triengel – That was some noteworthy upset from post nine on 3-9, then chased a runaway Delightful Dragon before the injury scratch, has shown the talent to overcome the outside draw

 

RACE 9

1-Triumphant’s Chip – Drops back down to the level of the explosive score on 3-24 when he equaled his lifetime mark, fresh threat also lands the rail & was strong in the win column last year

 

2-Man Of Muscle – Trotting hopples off experiment disappointed us last week, his previous Dover Downs form was solid & now the post is better, took a mark of 1:55.4 here last season

 

4-Its Chocolate Time – This gelding suddenly caught fire with a career best romp two starts back, then a solid third from post nine last week & draws inside in a wide open affair

 

RACE 10

3-Blush Hanover – Working on an 0 for 11 losing skid this season & this is a drop into a now-or-never spot, current form is okay & lands post three again

 

4-Ideal In Cash – Sporting some solid numbers from last year, fringe player @ Dover Downs recently lands a very cozy spot for Team Callahan, but tough to gauge

 

8-Areyoureadygirl N – Beaten favorite rallied to hit the board with a drop down scenario @ Pocono last out, tough draws, but has a chance to build on that in a very soft finale
