RACE 1

5-Mcnulty Z Tam – Beaten heavy favorite squeezed on through to grab second & taken down for pylon violation two weeks ago, big rally from last to second before that, has a big chance to atone for the very capable Samuel King

 

4-Tailgunner Hanover – Returns from almost eight months off, added Lasix for a deceptively good qualifier & draws inside, fresh threat may be ready for these

 

3-Good Day Mate – Upset a division of this series with a hard-charging rally over an off track on 10-16, pace compromised third as the beaten favorite last week & draws better

 

RACE 2

4-Griffon Hanover – Forced wide from a tough spot & hit the board with his second straight :26.3 last week, horse-for-the-course FINALLY moves inside & gets another shot at this bottom condition

 

1-Tom’s Arockin – Sleeper in here flashed a bit of late life coming from tenth & last in the comeback acclimating mile, 13-time winner of $114,000 in 2019 moves inside for his second try off the bench 

 

7-Mountain High – 4YO gradually coming around in three starts since arriving here for a new barn, fresh off a strong late surge for the show last week, likely needs a speed target from a challenging post

 

RACE 3

1-Spectre – Took a mark of 1:52.3 here last season, returns fresh off a dominant win @ Pocono, where he’s been chasing tougher & draws the rail to trip out in his switch to trainer Justin Sodano 

 

2-Super Schissel – Beaten favorite acclimated promptly with a solid late move to just miss to Cash For Gold last week, 4YO lands post two again & remains sharp enough on the comeback trail to turn the tables 

 

6-Cash For Gold – 9YO has been on a roll since the claim by Peter Pellegrino, fresh off a well-driven score with leading pilot Simon Allard & looms large again

 

RACE 4

7-Alyvia Deo – 3YO Trixton filly ended a long drought & trotted the mile of her life two starts back against N/W 3 @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, chance to show her upside with a with a well-behaved performance

 

3-Marveloustrix – Upset these with a solid rally from ninth three starts back, third in her last two from outside posts & impossible spots & finally moves inside

 

10-Heat Wave Hanover – 3YO filly is one for 17, stayed flat to romp in her latest qualifier @ Harrah’s Philadelphia for Team Bongiorno, threat despite post ten

 

RACE 5

2-INXS – Rallied to beat these back in late September with the mile of his life, maintaining consistent form @ Saratoga & returns with an inside post

 

4-Broadway Promise – Fresh off a much-improved effort on the engine, looks like Mark Silva has his smoothed out, retains George Napolitano, Jr. & draws inside again

 

6-Cyclone Maximus – Just one for 19 this season, but gets some much-needed class relief & draws a bit better, thrived @ The Big M & has favored the slop

 

RACE 6

7-Alexa Skye – Well-bred & talented filly flaunted her speed with a sterling rally from post ten last week, draws bit better off that mile of her life & can step up further

 

2-Grant Me This – One for 26 in 2020 with ten seconds, gets some class relief & post two again for her Big M debut & figures to be on or near the lead

 

4-Wingding Hanover – Somebeachsomewhere filly been competitive against N/W 5 @ Harrah’s Philadelphia & draws well to set up her preferred stalking style in this wide-open affair

 

RACE 7

10-Thaneeya – Took a swing with this one last week, encountered some road trouble & finished well for minor spoils, now moves all the way outside, but drops even further

 

1-Pazza Hanover – Rebounded off another break for a mild upset two starts back @ Plainridge, gets another rail for her Big M debut & finds a super soft spot to trip out in this pari mutuel puzzler

 

9-Teal Hanover – One for 14 in 2020 & stuck outside, yet shows a couple of seconds recently @ this bottom level & banks on a hot pace

 

RACE 8

7-Major Jesse – Just one for 32 in 2020, but unleashed a huge rally to grab the runner up spot two starts back & finished a solid third in a Fall Harvest Final last week

 

5-Thunder Dome – Aggressive winner @ this level back in early October, a strong third from post eight last week & rates serious contender status off that mile in a real handicapper’s headscratcher

 

1-Our Art And Heaven – Moves all the way inside after getting parked first over in a quickening pace & has been knocking on the door at this level

 

RACE 9

4-Warrior One – Beaten chalk just missed @ Pocono in two of his last three, strong in the win column this season with a mark of 1:52.4 here for Team Burke

 

5-HL Revadon – Sports a 1:52.3 mark here three starts back, solid runner up to a pair of standouts in his last two, can keep it going & has license to take all

 

7-Chiplosive – Caught fire for Team Cullipher & romped to back-to-back lifetime marks from outside posts last month, got parked & held third chasing JL Cruze last week

 

RACE 10

4-J Rockin B – Just one for 16 this season, yet too far back from post nine in her Big M debut, moves inside & was tackling much tougher @ Yonkers

 

5-Arnie’s Angel – Parlayed her latest upset rally @ Freehold into a decent effort @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, ships into a weaker class & sets up a midpack stalking scenario

 

6-Exotic Dance – Was on quite a roll here recently for Team Bongiorno & this eight-time winner this season is trying to rebound off two straight losses with Joe in the bike

 

RACE 11

4-Infiniti AS – Capitalized on an easier spot & cruised wire-to-wire in the slop @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, 1:53 winner here this season getting sharper & confident on the comeback trail & draws well

 

5-Lifetime Royalty – Just missed with a mighty late surge from post nine two starts back, took a 1:54.3 mark here this season & draws better

 

1-Bizet – Took a mark of 1:53 here in 2020, solid runner up two starts back, squandered an ideal cover trip last week, back on the rail to rebound

 

RACE 12

5-Up The Alley – One for 16 this season, was a fringe player @ this level before a rare miscue over an off track @ Monticello, note the barn change to Mark Ford

 

6-Shady Mccoy – Second by a head with trot @ both ends from the same post three starts back & has a big chance to snap his 2020 losing skid

 

10-Billie Claire – Cantab Hall filly just one for 22, yet has had an acclimating trip, owns some upside & looks for some trip luck from post ten
