RACE 5

4-Highland Top Hill – Homebred Muscle Hill filly fresh off her first two wins @ Pocono, both in the slop, and the latest in game grinding style, draws well & worth a shot

 

7-Muscle High – The drop out of NJSS has done wonders for this lightly-raced Muscle Hill gelding with a solid second, then a well-rated Campbell masterpiece last week

 

5-Sevally – This Trond Smedshammer-tuned filly was surely game first over & just missed to the favorite Myammie Drama two weeks ago, daughter of Chapter Seven with plenty of upside

 

RACE 6

4-Danish Durango – Steady Big M lover with a mark of 1:52 here last season, a solid second last out @ Harrah’s Philadelphia & seems to be cycling forward, draws inside a wide-open field

 

6-Muscle Diamond – Big question mark here bothered a bit by a first turn breaker, then faded in

the Charlie Hill Trot, finished well here two starts back in 1:51.1, hasn’t raced in 20 days, yet gets some class relief

 

9-Can Do – Draws farther outside, but comes into this match up fresh off a second to standout Trolley last week, any semblance of that effort makes him a major player in this intriguing puzzle

RACE 10

5-Keenan – John Campbell listed on the proof so this could be his last career drive, 9YO gelding is in pretty good form fresh off a solid second at this level, Hollywood could never write the scripts John has written over and over again, thanks for the memories, John!

 

4-Affair Of Honor – Trainer John Butenschoen has two Top Ten Hambletonian players in Bill’s Man & Giveitgasandgo, can this colt spark his Hambo aspirations in this softer spot?
