3-Princess Marxxx – Won a leg & the NJSS Final over Diamondstone US last year, romped @ Harrah’s Philadelphia before the sick scratch, month layoff a concern, but adds Gingras 


2-Samis Rolin Stone – Qualified third to the mighty Manchego, then added Brett Miller & stole a well-rated maiden-breaker in her 3YO debut, builds on that encouraging effort in a similar spot 


5-Diamondstone US – Sat the pocket behind Samis Rolin Stone & came up second best last week, fourth start on the comeback trail & note the seven seconds as a 2YO 



2-Rockin Redford – Grinded gamely & was no match for the well-rated Global Revolution last week, but draws inside that rival & has been chasing much tougher recently 


10-Global Revolution – Gets the outside assignment fresh off the repeat & mile of his life, 2017 Amateur of the Year Joe Lee swings for the fences again with a red-hot gelding 


1-Toss Cartwright – Gelding has proven competitive here in the past had a needed start @ Yonkers after a month off & lands the rail for the very capable Peter Kleinhans 



1-Shoshie Deo – Took full advantage of U Need Stones’ early miscue & cruised to a new mark in his 3YO debut, will likely be stalking that rival while brimming with confidence 


4-U Need Stones – 2017 NJSS champ somehow lost focus around the first turn, recovered well to finish a solid second, his previous two were pointing in the right direction 


2-Brutal Storm – Offered a late bid & finished a distant third last week, gelding owns a win this season, acclimating to the mile track & his barn is off to a great start  



2-Hurrikane Empress – Lived up to her heavy tote play with an aggressive second to Hypnotic Tale, retains Gingras from post two again with a big chance to advance further 


5-Hypnotic Tale – Made it two straight with a perfect trip pounce last week, outsprinted a gritty Hurrikane Empress in :26.4 & continues to ramp it up 


1-Cruzinforavictory – Solid third behind the same top two she faces tonight, moves inside for her fourth start as a 3YO & remains a stalking opportunist 



5-Zephyr Kronos – Unleashed an eye-catching rally to win his 3YO debut with a :26.1, then didn’t quite have the same pop last week, Takter Hambo eligible continues to improve in a soft spot 


4-First Call – Homer has a hot filly prospect fresh off an easy win @ Vernon Downs, draws well here & got to give her some love based on that effort 


9-Credicone – Has been struggling, yet building stamina in stakes company, tough draw back here, but the mile track suits him & Smedshammer hitting on all cylinders 



4-Ella Christina – Breeders Crown elimination winner at three upset the favorite OK Heavenly two starts back @ Harrah’s Philadelphia & fits well here 


6-Freakonomics – 1:51.3 winner from post 7 here back on April 13, been tangling with Preferred types @ Yonkers & returns fresh off two straight gutsy scores for the Crocodile Man 


2-Heaven’s Dancer – Consistent & versatile smaller track specialist draws well on a long form spree & deserves a long look in this match up 



6-Cheap Thrills – Her rally off cover came up a bit short in the comeback on Lasix, looking for logical improvement in her second start off the bench against this soft lower condition 


2-Classy Chapel N – Freshened up for Team Crocodile, qualified against Dan Patch Award winner Youaremycandygirl & draws inside a field begging to be beaten 


1-Roll With Ann – Has been picking up regular checks against N/W $5,000 @ Yonkers, lands the rail in camera-shy field & Ed Hart sports a strong percentage here 



3-Pappy Go Go – Undefeated 13-for-13 Maritimes star at three has taken a few starts to acclimate, just missed with a :27.3 two starts back, then chased the standout filly Atlanta, drops into a softer spot here 


6-Double L Lindy – Changed barns to Team Orange Crush & capitalized on some class relief & perfect second over trip from post ten to score decisively last week, big threat to repeat 


8-P L Icabod – Tried it on the engine on the step up in class to no avail, just missed with a thunderous rally before that & drops back down 



1-It’s Chocolate Time – Note the fine work Team Harmon did with Montalbano Bi, fresh claim flashed some late life last week, lands the rail to launch a new chapter in his career 


8-Checkmate Time – Erupted to equal his mark of 1:53.3 two starts back, then forced into a first over grind last week, drops back to the winning level, while facing the post eight challenge 


2-Fiji – Shuffled, then blocked behind a wall & finished with vigor once clear last week, drops back a notch & draws inside again with that one for 17 this season 


RACE 10 

4-Fool Of Ideas – 10YO with some back class been struggling against slightly better in PA, draws well in a prime spot & reunited with The Buckeye 


5-Wakinyan – Flashed some late pace from an impossible spot in his return to the mile track, gets  

another stab at this bottom level from an improved post 


3-Steady Pulse – Actually edged out Wakinyan for the final check last week, draws well again with a chance to snap a 0 for 14 losing skid this season
