RACE 1

8-Modern Yankee – Plainridge shipper arrives fresh off a gutsy repeat effort for this price, expecting speed to secure a stalking position & can capitalize on his sharp form

 

5-Terror of The Nite – Followed up a solid second from post eight with another strong finish from a tough spot last week, returns to claimers with a one for 29 this season

 

3-Wellwesaid – This gelding was simply caught too far back again from post seven second time Lasix & still finished with a respectable :27.3 & now draws better

 

RACE 2

5-Codias On The Move – Looking for a fresh angle here, shipper from The Meadows been tackling tougher N/W of 4 company from challenging posts

 

3-Gold Medal Swan – Beaten favorite dropped to this bottom condition, set a rated pace & couldn’t hold on in a modest 30 seconds, gets another inside post to atone

 

1-Star Studded Cast – Rebounded with a flat mile & decent effort from post nine last week, chance to show more from the rail in a wide-open field

 

RACE 3

3-Real DJ Hanover – Beaten favorite with a strong second two starts back, no chance with a slow start from post nine last week, moves inside for Team Svanstedt third time Lasix

 

9-Aventure – Gelding has hit the board in three of last four, fresh off big rally for second last week & looks to set it up from another outside post

 

6-Bold Fresh – Fresh off a decent acclimating mile, gaining fourth behind Real DJ Hanover a few weeks ago, recent Plainridge winner a price play option

 

RACE 4

8-Charmbo Curiosity – Gelding dropped to this price & looked like a completely different horse, charging home just a nose shy of Must Be The Bunny, tougher post pumps up his price

 

6-Esprit De Kayjay A – I have a soft spot for this kind, 13YO is a classic warhorse, makes his 300th career start fresh off his 70th win, flaunted his versatility with a decisive off-the-pace tally

 

2-Must Be The Bunny – 12YO ended a season-long drought with a perfect two-hole trip upset last week over Charmbo Curiosity, threat to repeat from another inside post

 

RACE 5

3-No Recess – Solid third in the comebacker @ Saratoga off an energetic qualifier, draws inside after facing tougher & his barn has done damage here in the past

 

2-Montalbano Bi – Fresh off carbon copy wins after a four-month layoff for a Harmon barn hitting on all cylinders & lands another inside post

 

1-Wild Smile – Beaten chalk paid the price for a slow start & was flying to just miss after upsetting better @ Yonkers, the rail facilitates a tailor-made trip

 

RACE 6

6-Walks Of Life – Makes a comeback in the most competitive race of the night, took a new mark of 1:51.2 when he repeated fresh off the claim this past July, looks ready for a serious stalking try

 

4-May I Cruise West – Changed barns & did a complete 180 when he stormed home from far back to nose out Rock The Official last week & rewarded with an improved post

 

1-Fox Valley Cadet – Consistent sort & twice a runner up as the beaten favorite, moves inside off a game effort as a pressure pacesetter for red-hot connections

 

RACE 7

5-City Pie – Horse-for-the-course got in high gear last week when he launched a wide late bid to just miss in a sharp :27.3, second start for new barn from a slightly better post

 

10-Calvin B – Clearly the class of this field got his own way on the point & was barely outsprinted as the beaten favorite, remains at this reduced level & major threat despite post ten

 

4-Le Gambe – Credit Mitchell Cushing with patient handling & prime positioning to get the most out of his charge at 50-1 last week, draws better to set up a similar rally

 

RACE 8

3-Aarin Hanover – One for 31 this season & on the fringe fourth in both starts here, gets another inside draw with a chance to upset with the right set up

 

8-Purity – Beaten favorite made a gallant bid from far & wide to just miss to Charming Hill, third start off the bench may be even better with back class on view

 

4-Charming Hill – Draws an improved post fresh off a gutsy 8-1 upset in her Big M debut, her eight win of the season, looks like one to beat

 

RACE 9

1-Cam’s Lucky Sam – Beaten favorite in his Big M debut simply had too far to come, 1:50.3 winner @ Vernon Downs gets class & post relief off that acclimating mile

 

5-Emperor Montana N – 1:50.3 winner @ Pocono this season lands in a real soft bottom level field here for his fourth start off the bench

 

7-Buckle Up – Just one for 21 in 2017, but this gelding had loads of late pace after a slow start from post nine in his Big M debut
