1-Synergy – Sports a $275,000 price tag, lands the rail in a soft division after winning two of three morning trials for top connections & his latest stands out, third foal out of a sister to Federal Flex, 1:53.3 [$735,534]


8-Chestnut Hill – $410,000 Muscle Hill fourth foal out of the millionaire Poof She’s Gone, finished well & just missed in both qualifier, the latest in a crisp :26.4, tough draw, but the speed, talent & pedigree is there


7-Rose Run Voyage – Took three baby races to get his act together, chased the promising Primo Padre in :27.3, hails from the second crop of Uncle Peter, a contender for Team Svanstedt despite post seven



7-Ramona Hill – Muscle Hill first foal out of 1:51.4 performer Lock Down Lindy, showed determination & speed when she rallied to win both morning trials for Alagna Armada


3-Contepartiro Deo – $190,000 Muscle Hill sister to Perfect Alliance, 1:51.2 [$249,788] cruised in her first trial, followed up with a solid second & draws well for Team Orange Crush


4-Julia C – My MVP full sister to Wolfgang, 1:51.2 [$578,560] really stepped it up in her second baby race with a confident wire-to-wire win & draws inside for a barn going well



5-Rocks Noble Artist – Has come to life with two straight convincing romps since the recent sick scratch both with Marcus Miller & draws inside again off the mile of his life in a G Notes Final


7-Tailgunner Hanover – Beaten favorite in last two since that rousing upset in :26.3 & 1:52.4 on June 15, forced wide from last in most recent, a faster pace sets up his late move


2-Bet The Dragon – 0 for his last 46, and his lone on-the-board spot came two starts back, lacked the needed punch last out, now draws better to stalk the speed



1-Back Of The Neck – Cruised all the way in his initial trial, then battled willingly to just miss in :27.4, debuts from the rail for Team Melander, first foal out of the dam with Oaks winner Broadway Schooner


4-Hayek – Rebounded from a miscue in his first baby race & tripped out to win his second in a solid 1:56.2 & draws well to give Team Melander a strong 1-2 punch, second foal out of a sister to Angies Lucky Star, 1:53.1 [$376,694]


9-Primo Padre – Kelly Walker homebred settled down after an initial miscue to win impressive @ Gaitway in 1:55.4, then wired foes here for Team Alagna, first foal out of a sister to And Heez Perfect, 1:52.3 [$859,513]



1-Hello Tomorrow – Muscle Hill sister to Dejarmbro, 1:52.2 [$1,137,285] aired it out in her first baby race, then finished a close second with a solid mile & faster time, lands the rail for another smooth trip


5-Bayou – Father Patrick filly made steady progress to win her third baby race with confident speed for Team Toscano, her second dam is standout Pizza Dolce, 1:52.4 [$668,824]


7-Thankful For You – Manofmanymissions sister to All Laid Out, 1:52.4 [$432,460], rallied nicely to hit the board in her debut @ Pocono Downs, demanding draw here, but knows her way around the oval



4-Follow Your Heart – Fired out to secure a perfect trip & just missed to Rockin The Aces last week, draws inside that rival while continuing to ramp it up, a brother to 1:50.3 performer K Rock [$416,166]


9-Rockin The Aces – Got off to a good start from the second tier, brushed to the top & outsprinted Follow Your Heart in :27.3 to go two-for-two, big threat to sweep despite post nine, 14thfoal out of his dam Mattaroni


5-Rockin The Gates – Hammered down to even money favorite, bobbled before the start, parked the mile & hung tough for third in an inspiring debut with Gingras, 13thfoal out his dam So Ravishing rates highly again with some better luck



10-Guardian Angel AS – Next to Atlanta, he’s likely the sport’s hottest Open trotter right now, fresh off a world record 1:52 in the Cleveland Classic, check out his 1:51 romp in the Maxie Lee & beat Cruzado Dela Noche with a :26.4, 5YO stands out despite post ten


6-Trolley – Can’t forget all those Preferred Trots he won here earlier this season, went all the way a leg of the Muscleman in 1:52.1 back on May 18, has a chance to assert himself in his second start off the bench for Team Miller


2-Say You Do – Caught fire for Team Sisco back at the end of May, lowered his mark to 1:51.4 in his recent string, and held on for back-to-back nose wins in both starts last month, the latest in a prolonged duel @ Tioga Downs, will likely be the main target from post two



10-World On Edge – Things didn’t go his way in Grand Circuit action @ Tioga, right there in the photo in his previous two here, Team Burke 3YO has the talent & speed to overcome post ten in this pari mutuel puzzler


4-Always Bet De Grey – De Grey was forced to chase highfalutin Graduate stock in his debut here & actually picked up a check, while pacing in 1:49, this is a much more reasonable spot for only his fourth start of 2019 after missing all of last year


2-Highlandbeachycove – Just one for 21 this season, but flashed some sneaky late pace in :26.3 in his return here last week, lands post two again & expecting a better start with the needed class relief



5-Fortune Starlet – Sister to NJSS champion Shoshie Deo crushed foes with an impressive parked out :26.4 last week, lands an ideal midpack draw & George Ducharme has a mighty 1-2 punch in this match up


4-Caviart Eva – Nosed out by a surprisingly good Spirit Of Deo in round one, then came up a neck shy to Spoiled Princess, draws inside that rival, speed & potential makes her a major player again


2-Jula Champagne – Trixton filly out of a sister to Triple Crown champion Marion Marauder was gunned down by a very determined Fortune Starlet in a strong opener, moves inside to possibly step up & turn the tables



5-Henderson Seelster – Beaten favorite was cycling forward before being pace compromised last week, gets high points for his aggressive effort & narrow loss before that


6-Zlatan – Found room to rally through stretch traffic & score the upset two starts back, then had no chance chasing Darling Mearas S in a 1:49.4 track record, steady gelding rates contender status in this camera-shy field


7-On The Ropes – Beaten favorite had dead aim & came up a length shy of Zlatan last time, a close second in three of his previous four, look for Ake Svanstedt to put him in play from a challenging post 



3-Change Stride N – Just one for 17 this season, but has been dropping positive hints recently, including a close third in 1:50.3 two starts, now gets some class relief, draws inside again & gets a sound the trumpet driver change to Gingras


7-Keepmywiglegametyt – Lightly raced 3YO ships in for Team Teague off a break, yet won four of his previous five in Delaware, there’s some speed & potential lurking, might be worth a swing in a field begging to be beaten


4-Stormont Czar A – Steps back up the class ladder off a strong second in the GSY Series with a :54.4 back half in reign to Rob Harmon, stalking type also draws an improved post



9-Spectre – Capitalized on a great drive by Tyler Buter to pull the upset in a career best of 1:52.3 from post eight last week, recent Team Harmon acquisition gets the repeat call despite post nine & may be heading for bigger & better affairs


6-Biodetti Hanover – Reeled off three in a row @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, went right back to the top here & yielded to the hard-charging Spectre in an excellent acclimating mile last week


4-Finally Found Away – Rewarded with a better post after airing it out for a new mark of 1:54.3, Bob Stewart trainee trying to keep his Hambo hopes alive



1-Big CC’s Rock – Arrives from Chicago on a form spree, grinded gamely for a new mark of 1:53.1 two starts back, lands the rail for a new barn, yet has missed some time


2-Taramakaureactor N – Was wondering if I should stay on his bandwagon after that narrow loss to Just N Berlander two weeks ago, nevertheless The Mann is back inside & looms large


9-Just N Berlander – 8YO is red-hot right now, came to within a fifth of his lifetime mark with a gutsy score over Taramakaureactor N & deserves a long look despite post nine



6-City Hall – 1:49.4 winner here this season hasn’t made much noise recently, but this is a significant class drop, he returns to his favorite track & doesn’t have a lot to beat


4-Southwind Masimo – Classy veteran hasn’t responded to the Team Burke touch yet, in fact he’s made early breaks in his last two, now gets a class relief & an inside post to possibly spark a wake up call


7-Sportsmanship – Ships back to Big M & lands in the bottom condition class, note the :27.1 third quarter speed @ Pocono last out, his one for 22 record this season in a concern however
