2-Hurrikane Empress – Daughter of John McDermott’s speedy 1:47.3 performer Hurrikane Kingcole scored a three-ply sweep of NJSS at two, earned some shares in the Weiss Series @ Pocono recently, freshened up & returns to the mile track to assert herself


5-Cruzinforavictory – Beaten favorite & runner up in both starts on the comeback trail @ Rosecroft, Jeff Clark homebred a runner up to Hurrikane Empress in all three NJSS events here last season remains a serious contender here


3-Hypnotic Tale – Ronald Mario homebred son of his world champion Hypnotic Blue Chip , couple of siblings earned a quarter million, Gambler’s Tale & Beach Story, lands in the Linda Toscano barn fresh off a career best @ The Meadows



8-Multitaskar Hanover – Noteworthy rally to hit the board when severely pace compromised from a similar post two weeks ago & Jennifer Lappe certainly knows how to condition/handle one


5-Inukchuk Chuck – Shows a gutsy recent win @ Pocono on 4-16, then raced way over his head from tough posts in his next three, big drop here & knows how to win @ The Big M


2-Stitch In Time – Veteran gelding is a Big M lover & recent winner @ Pocono for the productive Buter barn, getting some class relief & lands post two again



1-Samis Rolin Stone – Went winless in ten starts as a 2YO, but did win her first qualifier in hand, then chased the outstanding Manchego, matured filly lands the rail to stalk the speed


3-Princess Marxxx – Stayed flat & romped to a new mark in her second start off the bench with a well-rated effort @ Harrah’s Philadelphia


4-Ocarina Hanover – Added trotting hopples for a solid career debut here two weeks ago, big chance to show more in a wide-open field



1-Zephyr Kosmos – Takter trainee closed into a wicked :54.4 back half & :26.1 to nail the nose first win, lightly-raced son of the great Ready Cash has star written all over him


2-Perfetto – Rallied from a tough spot to win his 3YO debut, then missed a few weeks & made a late miscue, draws better to rebound with talent & potential


5-Lima Novelty – Chased the standout filly Atlanta in her latest qualifier then finished a solid third in NYSS @ Yonkers, Linda Toscano trainee has license to improve



2-Mister Indiana – 1:50 performer last season seems to have ramped it up a tad recently @ Hoosier Park, ships into real soft with a barn change & picks up Brett Miller


4-Ever Again – Tried the much tougher Hot Lead Series to no avail, displayed solid speed before that, gets class relief & draws well here


7-Ring Warrior – Well driven by Jim Marohn, Jr. to hit the ticket in a useful acclimating mile last week, same demanding post with an 0 for 17 in 2018 hanging over him



2-For A Dreamer – Cantab Hall colt with some Grand Circuit stakes experience & Hambletonian aspirations debuts for trainer Bob Stewart, stayed flat & tripped out to win his second qualifier in 1:55, makes his 3YO debut in a very easy spot


1-Eurobond – Brother to 1:52.1 performer Lindy’s Tru Grit Won his second qualifier in lively fashion for Domenico Cecere & lands the rail to launch his sophomore season in style 


7-Lovely Linley – Lightly-raced 4YO has raced well in all three starts here this season, draws back outside, yet may have enough to oust this field of question marks



10-Double L Lindy – Tackled tougher in the Shiaway St Pat Series, roughed up in most recent, gets class relief, switches to Team Orange Crush & may have enough to overcome post ten


4-Checkmate Time – Muscle Hill mare always had talent winning two legs of NJSS at two, unleashed a powerful score to equal her lifetime mark last week & draws the same inside post

5-The Fire Within – 1:53.2 winner here back on 4-20 drops into a real soft spot off a no-chance mile & draws a bit better


6-One More Miracle – Classy 9YO makes his second start off the bench for The Mann, winner here last season has the tactical speed to leave for a stalking trip


7-Kings Barns – If you look back at his two recent thirds in 1:52 & change he has to rate serious consideration, last week he ran into a 1:51.1 winner, this should be more to his liking



7-Fearless Leader N – 1:52.2 career best back on 3-17, returns to the mile track with a big chance to rebound off a miscue at a reduced level 


3-Super S Yzerman – If you’re looking for something positive in this bunch his rated speed last week lends some hope, plus the improved post & he’s overdue


5-Huxley – Productive sort & recent winner @ Freehold figures to be forwardly placed from his midpack draw & owns plenty of back class



5-Let’s Fall In Love – Dominant winner in her 3YO debut followed up with a solid second with speed at both ends, a major danger for Team Burke
