RACE 1

4-Scarlett O Terror – Just one for 21 this season, yet did flash some late pace from a pace compromised spot last week, threat within closer striking range off that acclimating mile

 

6-Delightful Feather – Bettor’s Delight filly was a beaten favorite three weeks ago when she rated nicely & just missed, steamrolled to a new mark of 1:53.2 in the slop before that & lands a real soft spot to go all the way

 

1-Stick That Lip Out – $30,000 Harrisburg Mixed sale purchase & Mystery Roll With Joe filly debuts for Kevin McDermott off a decent climate & in line for smooth trip from the rail

 

RACE 2

1-Zooming – Beaten favorite rallied to be a solid second behind a well-meant Burke trainee, classy millionaire ramping up his form & moves inside to trip out

 

2-Resita – 4YO Burke trainee displayed positive speed & held third in a beneficial Big M debut last week, draws better to build on that in a field ripe for the taking

 

6-Tuonoblu Rex – 1:51 performer in the slop here last year trying to regain that speed on the comeback trial, looking to rebound off a rare miscue last week & show his class

 

RACE 3

8-Northern Credit – Beaten favorite was parked first over & held third in a much-needed Big M debut, his post is more demanding, but we can expect more & his barn is on fire

 

5-Take A Wish – Unleashed a strong rally to hit the board in :27.2 last week, consistent filly deserves a long look off another solid effort

 

9-Lucky Sheila – Was sent to the front, got her own way & just missed in a game try last week, Chris Marino trainee draws a tougher post, yet has cranked up her game

 

RACE 4

6-Trolley – 1:51.4 performer is a nice comeback story from a broken coffin bone, now two-for-two on Lasix, held off a determined Opulent Yankee with a well-rated effort last week & stands out

 

4-Opulent Yankee – Fresh from a strong & improved mile flashing trot at both ends & gave Trolley a late Tussle last week, certainly knows his way around this oval & may be on the verge

 

5-Pappy Go Go – Former 13-for-13 Maritimes champion finished a solid third in the Preferred three starts back, then lowered his mark to 1:53.1 @ Pocono, strictly an opportunist here

 

RACE 5

5-Gold Orchid N – Fresh NZ bred 4YO won her first six US starts before a game narrow loss in the Dover Downs Open, this Bettor’s Delight mare is solid gold

 

7-Penpal – Breathtaking is one way to describe her sterling rally from last to first despite being pace compromised at even money last week, stuck outside a tough field again, yet remains a major danger 

 

3-OK Heavenly – 1:49.4 performer here this season just missed to Penpal with a well-driven Andrew McCarthy effort last week, draws better with a wicked late kick in her arsenal

 

RACE 6

1A-Landonfitz – Moves outside but comes off a strong pace-setting effort & finished second to a surprising Arch Credit, romped in an added distance event @ Yonkers before that so stamina is not an issue in this pari mutuel puzzler

 

5-Celebrity Lover – Finished an even fifth behind Landonfitz after sitting a three-hole trip, draws well to work out another stalking trip in a field where nobody deserves a high five

 

2-Waiting On A Woman – Regained his winning form in big way at the bottom condition level two starts back, then failed to get involved, 10YO veteran moves inside to set up a stalking trip

 

RACE 7

8-Delcrest Holiday – Team Burke 3YO has really found his best stride & romped to a new mark of 1:52.2 in his Big M debut last week, he’s poised to tackle a tougher class & post

 

5-Two AM – Twice beaten favorite @ Yonkers just missed despite a parked out effort two starts back, then made a break in the slop, a close third in the Yonkers Open on 11-18, sports a 1:52.2 mark here last year

 

3-Zlatan – Two straight solid thirds off the sick scratch, chased the standout Trolley against last week, draws inside again to stalk & take his late shot in this intriguing field 

 

RACE 8

5-Gemma’s Beach Girl – Just one for 15 this season, beaten favorite fresh off a strong tightening & acclimating mile for the Cancelliere brothers & lands midpack to step it up further

 

9-A Plus – First start for Team Burke always raises red flags, plus this mare comes off a game score @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, hasn’t raced in three weeks, saddled with post nine, still worth a long look

 

10-Fancy Creek Jolene – Took advantage of a notch of class relief & steamrolled first over to a gutsy win, stuck outside & bumped back up, but still rates strong consideration

 

RACE 9

7-Shady Mccoy – Equaled his mark of 1:53.2 here this season, gelding has regained his form & returns off a narrow loss @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, threat despite a challenging post

 

9-Arch Credit – 4YO gelding tripped out to a new lifetime mark of 1:54 in a huge upset last week, third start for his new barn, tougher task, still worth a long look

 

4-Georgie’s Pockets – Qualified with good energy after a miscue @ Freehold, makes his second start in a year, draws well in a wide-open field & his barn can do no wrong recently
