RACE 1

4-Rose Run Quickley – Needed his last start @ Pocono after missing 25 days off a sick scratch, just missed here at this level with a gutsy effort back on 4-14, might be the value play

 

6-Lauderdale – Classy gelding in this intriguing opener showing signs of energy recently, parked in his latest @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, returns here at a competitive level & may be the target

 

3-Sweet Justice – Another classy horse-for-the-course in this field on the fringes in his last two, should appreciate the class drop & inside draw facilitates his preferred stalking trip

 

RACE 2

4-Pine Tab – One for 17 this season, but knocking on the door, just missed by a nose here back on 5-12, then forced wide from an impossible spot on 5-19, lands in a soft spot for Hannah Miller

 

5-Windsun Fireball – Has picked up shares in some tough miles @ Saratoga recently, lone win this season came in wire-to-wire fashion back late March

 

6-Toss Cartwright – Flashed some sneaky late trot two starts back for Kleinhans & seemed to be sitting on a big effort, chance to rebound off a dull mile last week

 

RACE 3

2-Sunshine Delight – Staffan Lind-tuned filly has come back strong in three starts this season, kicked off by the mile of her life @ Pocono, a solid second from post seven there, then got parked in NYSS, big threat with an inside draw

 

8-Victor Gio IT – Peter Haughton Memorial elimination winner & Final runner up stayed flat & cruised in his sophomore debut for Tetrick & Takter, takes another step on the Road to the Hambletonian from a tougher post

 

1-Skidaway – Gelding has come to hand elsewhere, fresh off back-to-back romps from post eight, the latest a career best 1:56.4 @ Vernon Downs, fires out from the pole position here

 

RACE 4

3-Sweet Chap – Went all the way in a noteworthy qualifier here under less than ideal conditions, then got shuffled from post ten & picked up minor spoils in NY Excelsior A action, finds a softer spot with an inside draw here

 

9-Moneydontbuyulove – Lightly-raced 4YO found some confidence by adding trotting hopples, responded to aggressive handling with a solid second behind a wrapped up Victor Gio IT, tackles another tough post

 

5-Annapolis Hall – 0 for 15, but has hit the board in three of his last four, made a strong move to the top @ Vernon Downs

 

RACE 5

10-Gold Medal Swan – Gelding came up huge in his first start here for trainer Mark Silva off a sick scratch, stuck farther outside, but figures to improve

 

4-Moonlight Cocktail – This mare was shuffled & angled from stretch traffic too late last week,

drops a notch & gets the same inside post

 

7-Montalbano Bi – Made his move to the front in a rated pace & just missed by half a length last week, more demanding draw here, but razor sharp for Team Harmon & can’t be left out

 

RACE 6

6-B Yoyo – Big M lover returns with two straight wins here in early May, one on the engine, followed up by a :26.2 rally, interfered with on 5-19, back on the mile track

 

7-Gural Hanover – Except for his early miscue in the Cutler he’s been on top for every call in

three of his last four, fresh off back-to-back lifetime marks, clearly the one to gun down

 

5-Not Afraid – Yonkers Open mainstay has tailed off in his last two, classy Takter trainee returns to the scene of his best ever – 1:51.2 at age five

 

RACE 7

7-Market Share – Classy 2012 Hambo Hero trotted his fastest mile in awhile last week, runner up to a well-rated B Yoyo three starts back can take advantage of some class relief

 

8-Kolbee’s Star – May be cycling back around off an energetic effort @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, can overcome the outside draw with speed in a class drop scenario

 

6-Downundermatter – Steps up fresh off the mile of his life with a well-driven Campbell upset, another patient trip could pay off with a repeat in this wide-open field

 

RACE 8

9-Abbijade Hanover – Consistent Burke trainee has rallied to hit the ticket in her last five, lit up the board here at 54-1 back on January 6, outside draw, but these are much easier

 

6-Let Her Rock – Unleashed a wire-to-wire class drop n pop in a well-rated effort, steps back up brimming with confidence & loves this track

 

5-Dandy’s Beauty – Claimed off a gutsy win @ Yonkers two starts back, shuffled, angled & raging late to hit the board here last week for Eric Abbatiello

 

RACE 9

5-Marty De Vie – Gelding makes his second start for the high percentage Amber Buter, the latest break came in the slop @ Saratoga, lands in an ideal spot to conjure up some back class

 

6-Whatnblazes – 11YO warhorse finished a much-improved second with a more alert start last out, 0 for his last 33 is a major knock however

 

2-I C Caviar – Qualified behind the Open class trotter Obrigado, 1:53.3 winner here last season returns in a very cozy spot for Irish Joe

 

RACE 10

2-Joyful Game – Just missed in her last start here to the surprisingly good Mac’s Secure back on 5-5, overmatched against Open opposition @ Tioga Downs, ideally spotted here

 

9-Velocity Lana – Rallied into a solid :55.2 back half chasing the well-rated Let Her Rock last week, moves outside, but trends forward in her third start off the bench

 

3-Shesgotthebeat – Left alertly from post nine, got jammed up behind a gapper & shook loose with some late pace last week, contender from an improved post
