RACE 1

1-Rather Swell – Back in the Danielle Daley barn via another claim & easy repeat from post eight, huge romp in the slop before that & tough to go against from the rail in a soft GSY Series division

 

7-Quality Bud – Kicked out a crisp :26.3 to grab a piece two starts back, back in a light division of the GSY Series & Mark Silva figures to have a solid target to shoot at

 

3-May I Cruise West – Has finished well & hit the board in his last three with patient drives by Mark Schullstrum, just one for his last 46 & winless this season, but draws better here

 

RACE 2

4-Do Your Job – Classy 8YO settled for second as the beaten favorite two starts back, pace compromised into strong headwinds last week, drops back down & draws a bit better

 

8-Shewearsthepants – Forced wide from a tough spot just behind Do Your Job last week, rallied from last to third before that, two acclimating starts & hits rock bottom

 

5-Blush Hanover – Beaten favorite gave it a good try, but came up second best last week, has dropped all the way down to the bottom class & lands in another suspect field

 

RACE 3

5-Dewey Hava Winner – Has struggled to make much headway this season, landing on the fringes against tougher N/W 3 stock recently & this is an ideal class drop n pop scenario

 

1-TT Conway – Offered a hint of late trot in his switch to the mile track here last week, has a chance to build on that much-needed acclimating mile from the rail

 

2-Prince Of Minto – 1:56.4 winner @ Pompano back in early February faltered in the slop from second over in his comeback here two weeks ago, yet could rebound from post two again

 

RACE 4

5-Atomic Rei – No factor from post nine in the slop two weeks ago, solid in his previous three, claimed by Nick Surick & draws an ideal stalking post

 

2-Colonial Road – 12YO has caught fire this month & romped in his last two @ Freehold, sharp shipper lands an inside post to establish position or take charge

 

4-Buckeye In Charge – Steady check earner owns one huge upset against these back in early February, gets an improved post tonight to set up a stalking trip

 

RACE 5

3-Foreverhillreign – Muscle Hill 3YO qualified well, then drifted too wide off cover before landing the place deadheat with Wings Of Speed in his debut, draws inside to follow up

 

7-Wings Of Speed – Left more alertly in his second start & finished solidly for the place deadheat with Foreverhillreign last week, tougher post, but going in the right direction

 

1A-Final Claim – Muscle Hill gelding makes his 3YO debut on Lasix for Team Burke, post nine a hindrance, but owns some stakes experience & logical upside

 

RACE 6

4-Hockey Hanover – Stickhandled his way to the top & battled gamely to a narrow loss as the beaten favorite in a sharp Big M debut, look for this Burke trainee to fire forward again

 

3-Double L Lindy – 1:52 performer here last season is expected to step up in his second start in eight months with class & post relief for Team Orange Crush

 

2-Miami – The other Burke trainee in here a beaten favorite almost got to Arrakis, who stole that one last week, nice rebound effort second time Lasix & draws better for the class hike

 

RACE 7

7-Tech Titan – Has ramped it up with three straight on-the-board finishes, the latest from post eight, anything similar will get him across in this camera-shy field

 

4-Montalbano Bi – Just hasn’t been at his absolute best recently, but owns too much success here to be ignored & draws inside to tee up his potent rally for Team Harmon

 

5-Eyore Hanover – Beaten favorite made a rare early miscue last week, his previous two efforts were positive indicators & now he’s reunited with Eric Abbatiello

 

RACE 8

4-Hammer Time – Took a much-needed tour after the sick scratch & three-week layoff, rallied to beat these before that, lands post four in this wide-open match up & his barn is going well

 

6-U Need Stones – One of two Burke trainees in here with some back class was speed tightened in the comebacker & figures to be forwardly placed again 

 

3-Lucky Sheila – Sheila is good right now, hitting the board in her last two & runner up to the standout Bizet last week, her reward is an improved post in a field of question marks

 

RACE 9

5-Shady Mccoy – Has trickled down the class ladder & was hampered by a slow start from post eight last week, an overdue horse-for-the-course finds a prime spot for Eric Abbatiello

 

4-Dawson Springs – Beat the bottom level condition types with a game grind three starts back, a solid third while pace & trip compromised last week & draws inside a camera-shy bunch

 

8-Mayfair Johnny B – Sports a mark of 1:52.4 with 11 wins last season, beaten favorite suddenly tried speed & settled for third in the slow, draws farther outside, yet was chasing tougher

 

RACE 10

4-Newsday – Runner up in the NYSS Final at three kicked home with vigor to hit the board in her second start off the bench, expect even more & draws well to stalk n pop 

 

9-Oceania – Stormed home in a breathtaking :25.4 to take a new mark of 1:50.1 in her 2019 debut, then steamrolled to repeat @ Yonkers, rates top billing despite the outside assignment

 

5-Believe In Me – Rolled off perfect second over cover & edged Newsday for the place while swooped by heavy favorite Diva’s Image last week, has regained form since the sick scratch

 

RACE 11

2-If Not Why Not – Polished off his sophomore season with two of the best miles of his life, qualified well & looks ready to be a serious threat fresh off the bench from an inside post

 

5-Ataboy Hanover – Got jammed up behind a gapper & breaker on the final turn & just missed to a ground-saving Piercewave Hanover, a nice bounce-back mile on the comeback trail

 

7-Resita – Has struggled to make much headway at the Preferred level, took a mark of 1:53.1 with an aggressive effort back on 2-15, chance to regain form for his new barn

 

RACE 12

6-Bettor Chill Out – Finally put together an on-the-board finish from post nine, rates highly off that improved effort & makes her third start at the bottom condition level

 

4-Mistress Angelina – Has been very competitive for this price @ Freehold, used hard over a tiring sloppy track last week, draws well here second time Lasix

 

3-Live Odds – Have to dismiss last week’s mile as simply an off night, has been competitive at this level from tougher posts, needs a rebound mile to end a long losing skid

 

RACE 13

4-Magnum Mike – Constant threat & runner up to the raging Rather Swell in his last two, draws well to set up his usual late kick for the potent team of Andy Miller & Nick Surick

 

1-Abbeylara – 10YO has been on a tear @ the $7,500 level, fresh claim off his fourth in a row & blowout win from post eight & draws better for the bump up in price

 

3-Cheyenne Reider – Rebounded with a decent effort in the GSY Series last week, an inside draw can place him in close striking position again
