RACE 1

1-Canbec Kingkazimir – Just two for his last 44 & winless this season, yet fresh off an impossible acclimating trip from post eight, now gets class & post relief

 

4-Bright Future – Grinded gamely & still held third in his second adjustment start here, drops another notch, draws inside & like many in this opener is long overdue

 

5-David The Saint – Comes off a parked-out trip & chased a revved up Rather Swell in his last two, switches from claimers & has a chance to set up his keen late kick to snap his skid

 

RACE 2

4-K Ryan Bluechip – Two-time Preferred winner this season always has his game face on, nosed out despite a first over grind two weeks ago, give him a target & watch out

 

1-Highalator – Three-time sub 1:50 winner here last season unleashed a rousing return & down-the-road mission, figures to take advantage of the rail & attempt a similar effort

 

6-Caviart Luca – Team Burke trainee surprised a few with that nose upset over K Ryan Bluechip, came right back to wire them & hold off Shneonucrzydiamnd A @ Yonkers

 

RACE 3

6-Santiago Style – 1:49.3 performer here & $71,000 winner last season broke in his third start off the bench, now hits rock bottom & draws a bit better, yet certainly no slam dunk

 

1-Newbie – Just one for 24 last season, yet there’s some talent & back class lurking here, pushes off from the rail & look for more in his second start off the bench for a barn that’s ramped it up

 

5-Talent Soup – Nothing special about last week’s mile, but did rebound from a break, sports a mark of 1:48.4 here a few years ago & continues on the comeback trail in a blank field

 

RACE 4

3-Wheels On Fire – Capped his sophomore season with five in a row, aired it out in both qualifiers here for Team Burke, the latest in a sizzling 1:51.1 & no doubt poised for his 4YO debut

 

6-Mindtrip – $50,000 claim off a career best 1:50 was roughed up in his last two & scorched in his latest, has had two weeks to regroup & work out an effective stalking trip 

 

7-Hudson Phil – Uncorked a pretty impressive 1:52.1 win second time Lasix @ Saratoga, fringe player in the Preferred here before that, expect him to fire off the wings

 

RACE 5

5-Twin B Watching – Ontario Sires Stakes Grass Roots level colt showed some grit winning his qualifier here & debuts for Team Burke in a relatively soft spot

 

2-Mark Witha K – Adjusted quickly to the mile track here with a solid second from post seven, looking for a similar stalking trip from an improved post with The Buckeye

 

7-One Corona To Go – Chased Wheels On Fire in a pretty decent qualifier, gelding saw some stakes action at two & may make an immediate impression despite a demanding draw

 

RACE 6

1-So Take That – Has reeled off three in a row here with strong rallies, hats off to trainer Alexandra Goldin for reviving this classy 10YO, lands the rail for stiffer test

 

2-Griffon Hanover – Landed on the fringe fourth again from post ten last week, now moves inside & gets further class relief to make him a serious threat

 

3-Redonkulous – Twice beaten favorite was used too hard battling for the lead last week, gets another shot at the bottom condition level & draws inside again to atone

 

RACE 7

3-Decision Day – Got on a roll here late in a ten-win sophomore season, freshened & draws inside for the switch back to the mile track & finds a field where nothing stands out

 

5-Tact Tate N – Plagued by a couple of sick scratches recently, yet bounced back with a strong narrow loss last week, has a chance to build on that & take charge again

 

1-Quality Closer – Big upsetter last week lived up to his name with a sterling rally off fast fractions, moves inside which will likely place him within closer striking range

 

RACE 8

8-Shadow Cat – Off to a slow start & paced home in :54.3 in his debut here on Lasix for Jennifer Bongiorno, $102,000 winner at three owns some talent & could step up despite post eight

 

1-Incredible Shark – That was a powerhouse score from post ten two starts back, beaten favorite got overzealous on the step back up last week & draws the rail to ration out his speed

 

10-Play Jet Ray – Was Gingras’ option over Rebel Rouser & the Team Burke trainee finished a strong third in the comebacker, rates highly despite the post ten dilemma 

 

RACE 9

1-Dragon Time – Left in the wake of Highalator’s devastation in the comebacker last week, Team Burke 4YO with upside & trip potential from the rail

 

5-Lyons King – Intriguing shipper suddenly caught fire with two straight blowouts @ Dover Downs for his new barn, the latest a career best 1:50.4 & fits well in this tight match up here

 

6-Mcthriller – Beat some good ones with a great drive by Corey Callahan two starts back, then overmatched from post ten last week, stalking threat continues to thrive here

 

RACE 10

2-Dependlebury A – Note the gutsy narrow loss two starts back @ Dover Downs, regaining form since the recent sick scratch, draws well to trip out & surprise a wide-open field

 

1-Sportsmanship – Has simply picked it up with back-to-back narrow losses as a big longshot, gets a class relief scenario & draws the rail in a camera-shy field

 

4-Life Happened – Lived up to the hype, cycled forward & tripped out to score in a photo finish last week, looks for a similar set up from the same post 

 

RACE 11

1-Arque Hanover – Launched a menacing late move off cover & was just caught at the wire in a sparkling Big M debut last week, look for more from the rail

 

3-All It Takes – Gets some class relief & lands post three again after squandering a perfect second over trip & displayed a bigger late punch when he won three starts back

 

2-Siskel – Shuffled, buried & completely blocked down the stretch last week, his lone win this season came from post ten at the bottom rung, beaten favorite two starts back, upset chance

 

RACE 12

8-Roland Ontheriver – Power swept to the top, rebuffed longshot pressure & drew off in an impressive Big M debut two weeks ago, lightly-raced 3YO has a bright future based on that

 

2-Lyons Pegasus – Surprised more than a few with his game first over try & narrow loss in an inspiring debut last week, moves inside to follow up with a smooth trip

 

1A-Actor Hanover – Captaintreachrous first cropper tasted stakes action at two for Team Burke, qualified okay & likely sets up a big finishing kick

 

RACE 13

8-JK Parlay – Just missed with a big uncovered effort two starts back before the early miscue last week, assigned the outside, yet owns gate speed & may hold a slight class edge 

 

3-Spaghetti Eddie – Eddie is pretty steady & gave Four Staces all he could handle with a gallant first over effort last week, recent Nick Surick claim draws post three again & looms large

 

6-Four Staces – Came right back to control the front end & repeat fresh off another claim, consistent gelding now goes for Team Fusco & might be the one to knock off again
