RACE 1

6-Thndrfrmthethron N – NZ bred took a mark of 1:50.4 here this season, continues his tumble down the class ladder in search of a competitive level & owns a big kick

 

7-Albergo Hanover – Beaten favorite appeared to have the table set & couldn’t quite deliver the goods, just missed in :26.2 before that & makes third start for Team Burke

 

4-Starznheaven – Ramped it up in his last two while getting in better shape, beaten chalk chased a revved up Premier Rockstar last week & can stalk that same rival

 

RACE 2

6-Reggiano – Caught first over & forced to grind as the heavy favorite & still held third off a blowout win in 1:52 from post nine, has a big chance to rebound

 

3-Sugartown – Reclaimed by Williams Hernandez off a huge turn around romp in 1:52 last week, now draws a better post & retains Corey Callahan

 

1-Cruzing Hill – Dipped slightly to the $10,000 level & suddenly shook loose late to score the upset last week, steady 9YO is a threat to trip out & repeat

 

RACE 3

8-Barrage Hanover – Lightly-raced 4YO with a mark of 1:51.1 here & plenty of upside, took his requisite tour of the oval against much tougher & Chris Ryder could surprise this bunch

 

4-Palomar – 1:48.4 performer here last season has tumbled all the way down to the lowest condition & makes his a key third start off the bench from an inside post

 

7-Go West Go Fast – Finished a hard-charging third against N/W $7,500 company two starts back, hits rock bottom & has a chance to swoop a field that is a combined two for 53 this season

 

RACE 4

3-Sadiq Hanover – Stepped up to this level & kicked home from an impossible spot in :26.2, back half in :54.2, now looking for a closer stalking trip from an much-improved post

 

6-Stonedust – The grey was on a nice roll recently before the slow start & no-chance trip from post nine last week & had been knocking on the door at this level for Team Cullipher

 

4-Dealer’s Table – Promptly drops right back down to the level of a speedy, hard-fought win in 1:51.1 two starts back & draws well again to give Team Cullipher a solid 1-2 punch 

 

RACE 5

6-TJ Blast – Settled for minor spoils chasing Seeley Man last week, yet had been dropping positive hints, looks for the right pace & flow to possibly upset this field full of question marks

 

9-Seeley Man – Arrived fresh off a confidence-building romp @ Yonkers & went all the way here with a well-rated Dexter Dunn drive as the heavy favorite, remains a threat despite post nine

 

5-Acting Out – Was claimed again off a narrow loss to Seeley Man last week, looks to stay on a strong form spree & stalk from midpack in a wide-open affair

 

RACE 6

6-Some Chapter – This Anette Lorentzon-tuned 4YO has been a model of consistency, tried to get the jump on Get Legs & was barely outsprinted again, still eligible to turn the tables

 

4-Get Legs – Lightly-raced 4YO continues to tap his talent & potential for Team Orange Crush, nailed a very determined Some Chapter with another sterling rally last out

 

1-Pikachu Hanover – Emerged out of a shuffle with a much better second to JL Cruze last week, lands in an ideal spot to stalk the pace & expound on that effort

 

RACE 7

8-Escapetothebeach – Made a quick & effective transition from Ohio with a solid second to Chaser Hanover last week, stuck outside, but loaded with some back class

 

7-Good Rockin – Joined the flow off a rated pace & had to settle for a minor share last week, draws another demanding post, but gets another shot at this reduced level

 

3-Saying Grace N – Trounced these with a huge stretch explosion back on Feb. 13, gets class & post relief for Team Cullipher in an evenly-matched & camera-shy field

 

RACE 8

9-Lexus With a View A – Progressed nicely in qualifiers here on Lasix, went off as the favorite & grinded out a solid second in his US debut, builds on that from another tough post

 

8-Paduka N – Was able to get things entirely his own way on the engine & held on as the heavy favorite last week, bumped back up & moves outside, but gate speed puts him in play

 

6-Seeuninnashville A – Has been pretty consistent, but still winless this season, caught first over in his last two, perhaps he’s due for some better trip luck

 

RACE 9

4-Colossal Stride A – Unleashed a pair of eye-catching lower level wins to kick off his US stint, just missed with a sharp rally from post nine while stepping up & now draws better 

 

7-Gods Spirit N – That was an impressive winning sweep just before the sick scratch & solid runner up to Ana Afreet N in the feature last week

 

3-Decision Day – Steady, workman-like horse-for-the-course had no chance in last week’s feature, yet was a dominant post nine winner before that & now draws better

 

RACE 10

3-Deltasun A – Sat a three-hole off a well-rated JL Cruze, got jammed up late & lost all chance last week, draws inside a slightly softer group & has a chance to be more assertive

 

2-All Champy – Dominant winner in this slop two starts back & just missed last week, steps up again, but draws inside, while regaining top form with Dexter Dunn

 

1-Rock Of Cashel – Severely pace compromised, yet finished with plenty of late trot in a much-needed comebacker & now moves inside to stalk from closer range

 

RACE 11

1-Dull Roar – Claimed again last out by Besim The Dream off a narrow loss, 11YO has been on quite a roll recently, retains Andrew McCarthy & has a chance to take control from the rail

 

2-Victorias Maverick – Took his act over to Yonkers & just missed the repeat there, draws inside back here & in line to trip out, one of four Dexter Dunn was listed on

 

3-Pirates Alley – Form has tailed off recently, but the fresh claim is eligible to turn things around from another inside post in a mostly wide-open affair

 

RACE 12

7-Skyway Kon Man – Has cranked it up for Team Cullipher with three straight on the board finishes, a solid second off a slow :57.3 half last week & now drops a notch

 

3-Pappy Go Go – Flaunted his class, took control & regained his winning form two starts back, drops back down with post three again off a parked out trip

 

5-St James Gate – Team Burke trainee has been pretty steady in his last three, tried to steal it with slow fractions & settled for third last week, retains contender status

 

RACE 13

6-The Candyman Can – Took a 1:49.4 mark here this season, 4YO now plummets to the rock bottom condition & has a big chance to revive

 

2-Primo Giovanni – Has simply been much better hitting the board in his last two, his latest from post nine in a crisp :27.2 & draws an improved post

 

4-Time For George – Recent winner @ Rosecroft changes barns for his Big M debut, tough to gauge where he belongs, but draws inside a real soft finale
