RACE 1

3-American Kronos – Her only loss came with a tough trip & miscue @ The Meadows, saved ground & shook loose with just enough to get up by a nose in a sharp Big M debut for Team Orange Crush

 

6-Global Pageant – Assumed the role of heavy favorite, switched to speed & scored in a well-controlled career best last week, her previous Grand Circuit experience is an asset & versatility may came in handy here

 

4-Marveloustrix – 0 for 10, but has benefited from a pair of solid efforts here this month, rallied stoutly in :27.1 chasing the well-rated Global Pageant last week

 

RACE 2

4-Sweet Diamond – Followed up a 1:52.4 maiden breaker @ The Red Mile with a hard-charging nose loss in her sharp Big M debut last week, big time pedigree & upside in her corner

 

1-Odds On St Lucie – This Tony Alagna-tuned filly adapted quickly to the Big M with a decisive brush n crush last week, draws inside again with major stakes experience on view

 

3-Darn Tootn Hanover – Just missed again in a crisp :26.2 despite being severely pace compromised last week, another promising Sweet Lou filly could be on verge

 

RACE 3

5-Can’t Touch It – Runner up to Sister’s Promise two weeks ago, then chased a well-rated big favorite Global Pageant, this Takter trainee is a prime opportunist with another smooth trip

 

3-Sister’s Promise – Convincing winner here two weeks ago gave the Breeders Crown eliminations a whirl & made another break, lands an ideal spot to rebound for Team Toscano

 

2-Big Weezy – Her & her stablemate have a case of seconditis, yet her latest came off a sick scratch, draws back inside to work out a stalking trip & break through

 

RACE 4

6-Michelon’s Filly – Stormed home off a solid pace with an eye-catching :26.4 enroute to a convincing score two weeks ago, big chance to show more off that excellent acclimating mile

 

5-JK Mardi Says – Was able to brush to the front past an easy :58.3 half & held on with a :26.4 to save the favorite players last week, faces key match up with the 6-Michelon’s Filly

 

1-Surreality – Shipped in after a productive run @ Freehold, had no chance after a slow start from post seven last week, moves inside with a useful acclimating mile under her now

 

RACE 5

2-Jackie Newlands – Newly acquired Team Harmon filly stayed flat, made some progress & picked up a check in her second start since the barn change, lands in a prime spot

 

6-Fleur De Hill – Muscle Hill filly tried tougher in the Simpson to no avail, some previous lines make her very competitive in this softer match up 

 

8-Quantum Kemp – Ships in with three needed starts @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, broke his maiden in style fresh off the bench for a top trotting barn, but the post is a challenge

 

RACE 6

4-Reign Of Honor – After making breaks in three of his previous four this gelding added trotting hopples & flashed a :27.1, son of Father Patrick draws well off that positive outing

 

3-Thunder – Had quite a run in the NYSS program & just missed in that final, now hasn’t raced in over a month after a sick scratch, draws inside & remains a big question mark

 

6-Alderbaranwalkabout – Off a break @ The Red Mile he was aggressively handled, rated a :58.4 middle half & almost held on for the upset, worth a long look off that Big M debut

 

RACE 7

4-Southwind Ozzi – Absent last week after he just missed to the well-rated Mac’s Power with a :26.4, look for him to get a better pace target to shoot at here

 

3-Escapetothebeach – Added Lasix, backed off a :58 half & held them off with a :26.4 & took a new mark of 1:52.2, his dam Shelliscape won back-to-back Breeders Crowns

 

2-Mac’s Power – Went all the way in an uncontested score in his Big M debut, then set a more demanding pace & gave way last week, draws better while trending in the right direction

 

RACE 8

5-Pilot Discretion – Late-blooming $100,000 Muscle Hill colt for Tony Alagna went two-for-two in Lexington & stands out in this division

 

3-No Drama Please – Blew them away with a sharp new mark of 1:54.3 before the sick scratch, draws inside to take charge for Team Orange Crush

 

6-Lucky Weekend – Bounced back off a break with a well-driven upset for his new barn, two wins before the miscue came the same way, a live item to consider here

 

RACE 9

2-Silk Reed – Rallied nicely for second chasing a heavy favorite Odds On Stephanie, draws better in a similar match up with a chance to stalk within closer range

 

6-Ashlee’s Sport – Just one for 23, yet this Blake MacIntosh filly can snap her 2018 losing skid fresh off a strong third behind Silk Reed last week

 

1-Typhoon – Has been ramping it up on the comeback trail in PA for Team Burke, 2YO draws the rail to stretch it out & improve on the mile track.

 

RACE 10

6-No Ordinary Man – This gelding was barely outsprinted in :26.2 after Escapetothebeach stole a :58 half, only making his fourth career start & maybe worth a swing

 

4-Melanie’s Tedy – Lived up to his tote hype with a rousing new mark of 1:52 beating Cub Fan in his first start here, his Indiana lines indicated talent, big threat to repeat

 

2-Cub Fan – Gelding finished well to be second best behind Melanie’s Tedy last week, nice rebound effort & draws an improved post off that acclimating mile

 

RACE 11

5-High Blue – Bounced back with a solid third last week in his second start off a lame scratch, stalks from the same midpack post & garners strong support in a wide-open finale

 

7-Pricelesspossession – Finished a roughed up fourth behind High Blue last week, draws a bit better & was chasing superior foes @ Harrah’s Philadelphia

 

8-Lauderdale – Classy horse-for-the-course freshened off consecutive breaks, won the qualifier with authority, tough draw with fitness a question
