RACE 1

3-Star Track Hanover – Solid runner up to impressive first timer Guaranteed with Lasix added, draws inside to continue improving for Team Burke

 

1-Summit In Sight – Rallied in sharp :26.4 when qualified a close second to Guaranteed, then regressed into a break after flashing speed in the comebacker, chance to rebound from the rail

 

10-Miss Trixton – Aired it out to break her maiden in style in a smashing 3YO debut @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, filly with a future demands attention despite post ten

 

RACE 2

1-Odds On Naples – Just missed in her 3YO debut with a :26.3, then grinded gamely into a :54.4 back half, lands her third straight rail for the Crocodile Man

 

6-Backseat Terror – Runner up in her last three, fresh off a strong uncovered effort & outgamed Fool Me Again for the place last week with a :54.4 back half

 

5-Fool Me Again – Covered her last half in a brisk :54.2 to gain the show spot last week, one for 15 filly heading in the right direction

 

RACE 3

7-Swancredit – Just one for 15 this season, yet comes off a much-improved rally for third in :27.3, Robert Lounsbury claim back in late March hits rock bottom here

 

2-Knightofvictory – Suddenly got aggressive in the slop & had just enough to hold off Prince Of Minto for a new mark, draws an improved post to set up his preferred stalking trip

 

5-Prince Of Minto – Beaten favorite fresh off a nose loss to Knightofvictory with trot at both ends from post eight, solid rally for third before that, chance to turn the tables

 

RACE 4

5-Ideal Son – Forced wide from a tough spot & hit the board with a :26.4 over an off track last week, a positive sign for his switch back to claimers & dangerous within striking range

 

4-Shaving Mug – 10YO added Gingras & lathered up to beat these with a sterling rally in the slop last week, follows up on that superb acclimating mile from another inside post

 

7-Pop Pop Joe – Hot item at the claim box took pressure & folded fifth as the heavy favorite last week, always capable of swelling up on the front end & now Team Fusco takes over

 

RACE 5

1A-Haveoneforme – Towered up late with a snappy :27.2 to nose out heavy favorite Asiago in the comebacker, that new mark was three weeks ago, yet this filly has major league potential

 

9-Say You Do – That was some bounce back effort & game grind for the upset last week, now tackles post ten off the mile of his life

 

4-Speed Titan – Grand Circuit player at two, rebounded off a miscue to chase a classy The Ice Dutchess in the second qualifier & draws well to contend right off the hop

 

RACE 6

3-Stonebridge Gamble – Two solid tighteners here so far, severely pace compromised & closed in :26.4 last week, 4YO with upside draws inside for Team Buter

 

4-Warrawee Shipshape – Nailed the heavy favorite Celebrity Pegasus with a perfect trip two starts back, then chased the standout repeater La Grange A last week, huge threat here

 

6-Celebrity Pegasus – Just missed to Warrawee Shipshape two starts back & runner up again to well-rated winner last out @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, solid contender in a tight affair

 

RACE 7

10-Gold Orchid N – That was some explosive rally to take a new mark of 1:50.2 in her sloppy track Big M debut, somehow she gets class relief to go along with a more challenging post

 

2-Rockin Praline – Solid runner up to the standout Reclamation last week, game wire-to-wire to nose out Stylish Beachwhere before that, draws inside in top form

 

5-Stylish Beachwhere – Never entered contention last week & now 0 for 15 this season, second to Reclamation in :25.3 before that, needs a better start to set up her stalking style

 

RACE 8

3-Family Roll Call – 0 for 11 this season, yet has cycled forward in her last three, nice rally for second to heavy favorite You Should Be Here last week & now draws better

 

8-Parkin In Heaven – Parlayed a mild upset & new mark of 1:52.4 in the slop here with a decisive wire-to-wire @ Pocono, gate speed puts her in play & her form has never been better

 

6-Traffic Jam – Raced well in her last three since switching to Team Harmon, a decent third behind Family Roll Call with a perfect second over trip last week, needs bit more improvement

 

RACE 9

1-Ideal Candidate - Toss out last week’s no-chance trip from post ten in the GSY Series, a rock solid second to a revved up Pop Pop Joe before that, moves inside & reunited with Dexter Dunn

 

4-Just N Berlander – Has cranked it up & knocking on the door in his last two, reclaimed by David Wiscow & draws inside again to work out another stalking trip 

 

5-Daylon Horizon – Followed up a tough nose loss with a winning rally & narrowly denied Just N Berlander last week, looks to continue ramping it up with a similar set up

 

RACE 10

2-Democracy N – 11YO with some success here in the past, can take advantage of some class relief & smooth trip from an inside post here & note the barn change

 

6-Steve Said – Moved forward off an acclimating mile with a perfect trip upset from post eight last 

week, any semblance of that effort could spell repeat

 

4-Perseverant – Shifted his act back here to the mile track, set a rated pace & settled for third last week, draws better for his third start off a sick scratch

 

RACE 11

7-DW’s Revenge – Fresh off a narrow loss in a key third start off the bench, Team Burke trainee appears on the verge in a field begging to be beaten

 

5-Arrakis – Flashing early speed, yet has struggled recently, now this Big M horse-for-the-course gets some much-needed class relief, will it be enough?

 

6-Majestic Presence – Went all the way in his second start off the bench for Team Orange Crush, has a chance to rebound off a dull mile @ Harrah’s Philadelphia

 

RACE 12

7-Carly Girl – Struggling against better from tough posts over smaller tracks, makes her second start for trainer Nick Surick & lands in a prime spot to shine

 

3-Live Odds – Hasn’t won in a long, yet did make up for a slow start with a solid second last week, note the :26.4 when she was runner up in the slop on 4-12

 

4-Whiskersonkittens – Veteran mare has two solid tighteners under here, rallied for third behind Live Odds last week & now draws better

 

RACE 13

7-Awesomeness – 1:50.1 winner here last season, returns to the Big M at a greatly reduced level & adds Gingras in a now-or-never spot

 

9-Major Authority – Has found the going simply too tough here since coming back, moves outside, but this is a significant class drop for a dangerous barn 

 

5-Major Pepper – Making up for a lost season in 2018 & coming around in his last three @ Pocono, ships into a soft affair here for Team Harmon
