1          Rock N’ Roll World – Burke trainee finished third in last year’s Graduate Final here, got two months freshening & qualified with good late energy chasing Open class Mach It So, ready for this intriguing match up


3          The Rock – Dropped back to a winning level, added Brett Miller & delivered in decisive fashion, in line for the same scenario, Buter barn hitting on all cylinders


5          Jacksrluckytoo – Finished stronger last week while closing from a tough spot as usual, can’t be too far off the pace in this abbreviated field & noted for his wicked late kick



2          UF Fast Feelin – Beaten favorite was wiped out when he hooked wheels around the first turn last week, chased a runaway Mr Julian before that, big chance to score an overdue win in this soft spot


4          Tijuana Party – Runner up in his last three draws the same inside post while facing no standouts in this match up, chance to take charge or stalk the pace & break through


10         Fraternity – Was hammered down to even money & responded to aggressive handling from the rail last out, ten-time winner in 2-17 will be hard-pressed to repeat from post ten



1          Tractor Glen – Made a favorable transition from Monticello to the mile track here with a solid third last week, look for him to build on that with another smooth trip from the rail


5          Grave Dancer – 1:52 winner here last year is winless in nine starts this season, but has been consistently in the money, solid runner up from post eight last week


4          Baggage Claim – Added Lasix & suffered interference two starts back, then didn’t have enough late pop to threaten last week, still waiting for this Team Harmon gelding to spark his form



1          Hammock Bay – Finished a much better second to runaway Classy Dragon last week, late-blooming 4YO continues to build some momentum from the rail


4          Stirling Ensign – Hit the board chasing the standout Classy Dragon in his last two, those were good tune ups for a prime opportunity like this from an improved post


7          Park It Park It – Finally broke his maiden @ Monticello in career start 24, headstrong gelding makes his third start for Dan Gill & adds Brett Miller, who figures to utilize his speed to overcome post seven



4          Somesizesomestyle – Makes his third start for Dylan Davis & off a sick scratch, had some sneaky late pace from a tough spot last week & drops dangerously


5          City Hall – Stepped up in class admirably & just missed to a raging Rockin Ron last week, drops back down & always a threat when he swells up on the front end


3          Art History – Steve Elliott trainee has thrived her in the past, gathering momentum on the comeback trail in the Dover Downs Open, draws well to be a major player back here



7          Legion Of Boom – Reclaimed by Eric & Art Foster off a pretty decent third to Dateline Hanover, while showing speed, likely leaves searching for that ideal stalking trip again


8          Dateline Hanover – Has cruised in three straight & two blowouts in a row here & has lowered his mark to 1:52.2 in the process, figures to take charge & control the pace again


6          Unix Hanover – 0 for ten this season, but a sharp claim by Vincent Fusco, Jr., solid runner up in his last three, the latest two behind the red-hot Dateline Hanover, chance to turn the tables



6          Stratocaster – Has come close recently a notch above this & has tackled even tougher this season, drops dangerously & capable of a lethal late kick


2          I Like Dreamin – Chased a runaway Alexie Mattosie here back on 12-31-16 before a three-month layoff, qualifier looked good against much classier foes & the draw is kind


1          That’s My Opinion – Rallied from an impossible spot to pay off as a 25-1 barn change bonanza, moves inside on the slight step up & could keep it going in a field full of question marks



6          Blush Hanover – Rallied to hit the board against better company two starts back, drops off a no-chance trip & reunited with Super Brett, prime time opportunity


7          Snow Cone A – Set a rated pace & came up third last out @ Yonkers, blowout winner here in a career best 1:51.3 with a :26.4 two starts back, trying a tougher level here this time


8          Mosquito Blue Chip – Classy winner of $650,726 makes her 5YO debut off a one for 17 season, the qualifiers were adequate, the post is a challenge, but she could be ready despite the four-month layoff



4          So Take That – Mounted one of his patented late charges & paid instant dividends off the Bruce Clarke claim, comes right back with the same inside draw as a big threat to repeat


8          Daylyn Horizon – Beaten favorite rated a solid pace & was collared by a rejuvenated That’s My Opinion, draws even farther out, but remains on his toes for Brett Miller


3          Mr Big Load – Was reclaimed by Bill Mann & finished a solid third with speed from post ten, draws much better to keep his form spree alive at the same level



1          Rooster Rabbit – Just missed by a neck first time Lasix back on 2-25, moves inside, adds Brett Miller & has a chance to turn things around in a wide-open field


7          Moonlight Ransom – Beaten favorite almost went all the way in a strong effort from the same post into strong headwinds last week, 1:50.2 winner here last season may be the one to reel in again


3          Big City Jewel – 0 for his last 27, note his third start for trainer Tom Shay was a distant second to the runaway Giant Slayer two weeks ago, post improves his chance to build on that effort



3          Special T Rocks – Classy 9YO near $600,000 ships into a softer spot after getting parked as the beaten chalk @ Dover Downs, strong in the win column & well situated to stalk n pop


4          Cashendash Hanover – Steady 10YO hasn’t missed the board in eight starts this year, fresh off a nose loss while getting parked from post nine @ Dover Downs, a relentless warrior


1A        Eastend Eddie – Consistent Burke-tuned veteran drops dangerously off two tightening miles, can close with the best of these, completes & compliments a strong entry



3          Disarrei – Flashed some late life in his latest start @ Yonkers, makes his fourth start since a sick scratch, lands in a much softer spot & the price may be right


2          P L Idaho – Exploded out of the pack with a wide rally for the mild upset in his second start here, fresh threat owns a bit of back class, draws inside & his barn is going well


1          David’s Dream – Struggled to make much headway against tougher recently, gets his third consecutive class drop, lands the rail again to set up his strong late kick
