1A-Southwind Hydro – Hambletonian prospect added trotting hopples & follows up on a pretty impressive career debut two weeks ago, another tough post, but doesn’t face much


3-Di Oggi – Colt by Crazed still looking for his first win after 11 starts, two comeback miles were encouraging, the latest chasing the sizzling Sortie in PASS & draws well here


6-Northern Starlight – Looks like an add on to this ticket, making some progress after three starts, overmatched in NJSS, sister to Little Brown Fox, 1:51.2 [$1,192,403]



6-Every Way Out – Lived up to the 1-9 hype with a mighty power surge in :26.2 to romp in his sophomore debut, gelding has major stakes aspirations


2-Deo Galileo – Nice bounce-back mile off a break @ Mohawk & acclimating trip & note the late surge to a short lead before Every Way Out kicked into gear


5-Prairie Mcdreamy – The other Dylan Davis trainee in here finished with a solid :26.3 to hit the board in an inspiring debut last week



5-Panana Republic – Added trotting hopples & uncorked a huge win & took a new mark in this GSY Club two starts back, big chance to rebound off a miscue @ Yonkers


8-Real DJ Hanover – Gelding regained his winning form with an easy air out mission two starts back, then just missed by a neck last week, remains a threat despite the tougher draw


3-Winwood Scout – Recent Mike Watson claim went all the way from post nine with a well-rated effort in the Billings two starts back, then made a rare miscue, draws well to bounce back



2-Super Soph – Ships in fresh off a wire-to-wire, confidence boosting score @ Tioga Downs, fresh threat with an inside draw expected to be on or near the lead


7-Keystone I Wish – Gutsy mare went all the way to score her ninth of the season in a career best 1:51.2, gets a serious test against some classy mares


6-Rock Me Baby – Courageous Lady winner at three cruised in her 4YO debut @ Yonkers, then broke as the heavy favorite, chance to atone in this competitive match up



4-Feed Your Head – Finished a solid second to the well-rated Glitzy Gal in her 3YO debut, look for her to step it up for Team Takter with another inside draw


8-Glitzey Gal – Aside from Ariana G one of the most impressive round one winners, stole it all the way for her second straight in a career best 1:52.2, post eight poses a challenge


1-Ice Attraction – Ake Svanstedt trainee just missed to the impressive colt Enterprise in her sophomore debut, was poised to take a shot at Ariana G before she broke last week



2-What The Hill – Last year’s NJSS champion & Peter Haughton Memorial winner has come out guns a blazin, dominated wire-to-wire in round one & draws inside again


1-King On The Hill – Saved ground, had dead aim & broke in the stretch chasing What The Hill, look for this Takter trainee to rebound from the rail


9-Southwind Cobra – Distant runner up to What The Hill last week, strong on the comeback trail with Lasix added, overcomes an outside draw with gate speed



6-Ooo Rah – Won four out five in the Weiss Series, including the final in a career best 1:55, toss out the gate miscue @ Yonkers, this is a talented trotter with upside


3-Don Dorado – Gelding has conjured up some of his back class & cycled forward, draws well, yet gets another class hike off a second to standout Hambo prospect Bill’s Man


8-Stonebridge Combat – Regrouped after breaking issues & recent sick scratch to post a pretty impressive qualifier in a career best 1:53.2 with Tetrick, likely blasts & may not get caught



8-Colorful Jasmine – Was able to steal a :58.2 half & dominated her division last week to go two-for-two in 2017, Cancelliere brothers filly gets a stiffer test, but has oodles of upside


4-Livinginthedream – Twice beaten favorite @ Tioga Downs before her gate miscue last week, post improves her chances of a rebound & there’s some potential lurking here for Team Miller


10-Wonderful World – Outraced her big odds, left alertly & outsprinted by the well-rated Colorful Jasmine in round one, capable of more to overcome post ten



1-Hyway Marcus – Took another shot at this bottom level, launched a late bid & finished an improved second behind the big favorite Real DJ Hanover & lands the pole for Team Harmon


3-Here Comes Numbers – 9YO gelding makes his third start off the bench with an inside draw, owns some back class & switches to Scott Zeron


6-He’s An American – Was a bit better in his third start back against $10,000 claimers in the slop, lone win in 2017 came here this season & drops into an easy spot



4-That Girl Of Mine – Draws better off a needed acclimating trip, finished well to hit the board,  seems to be on her game & may try speed this time


3-Mojarra Hanover – Classy veteran was nosed out with a hard-charging effort off cover last week, loves the long stretch here, draws well again & may be on the verge


7-Algebra – Got into the lively outer flow & just missed by half a length last week, another patient trip & decent speed target puts her in the picture again
