RACE 1

5-Ohoka Texas N – 10YO rallied from an impossible spot to upset back on 12-29, gets a nice helping of class relief & midpack post to stalk n pop

 

4-Intheblinkofaneye – Winningest pacer @ Big M in 2016 with nine tallies, has been better in his last two, third to a decisive War-N-Munn last week

 

7-Lucky Man – 12YO millionaire has cranked it up in his last three, kicked home in :27.1 despite an uncovered trip on 1-21, runner up to a well meant War-N-Munn last week, tougher post here

 

RACE 2

6-Djnorthernstar – Finally put together a serious rally off a solid pace & just missed to Timcat Hanover, a similar trip may put him across at a decent price

 

7-Timcat Hanover – Lightly-raced gelding delivered in his debut here, holding off a hard-charging Djnorthernstar & has obvious upside

 

1-Witchita – 0 for 17, yet has managed a couple of on-the-board finishes here recently, his latest chasing Timcat Hanover & draws inside that rival

 

RACE 3

1-Dancingwithdelight – Saved ground & encountered stretch traffic last week, second start off the Sean Bier claim with speed on the rail & has beaten better

 

6-Perseverant – Razor sharp gelding off a win & narrow loss was claimed again by Team Fusco & figures to be firing off the wings

 

4-Jetski Louie – Huge upset winner back on 12-23 has cycled forward & finished better in his last two, prime stalking threat in a wide-open field

 

RACE 4

1-Mattamerican – Tonight’s best bet was airborne last week, coming up a half length shy of standout Calvin B with a wicked :54.3 back half, now drops & moves inside

 

7-Reuben Brogden N – Won both qualifiers here with strong finishes, paced his back half in :54.3 in the comebacker, now drops for the dangerous second try off the bench

 

4-Mister Truth – Was too far back & kicked home in :26.4 when he tried these on 1-14, right there in the photo with Mattamerican last week, big threat at this level

 

RACE 5

3-Something For Doc – Not strong in the win column, but ships back here into the bottom condition, picks up Brett Miller & draws inside with plenty of back class

 

5-Rock Star – Enjoyed his third straight class drop & closed from a tough spot to be runner up to a raging Tauranga last week, a major threat here

 

6-Show Me Up – Took advantage of some class relief to rally for second at 32-1 last week, any semblance of that effort puts him in this picture

 

RACE 6

3-Si Semalu – Tonight’s Price Play stormed home to upset these back on 12-31, drops back down, draws inside again & can stalk the ample speed on view

 

4-Rockin Robert – Jack Franklin trainee got shuffled behind a rejuvenated Vegas Vacation after winning two in a row, fresh threat from another inside post

 

1-Missile J – Last year’s Rooney winner who sold for $115,000 at the January Sale exploded once clear in a crisp 26.2, classy & talented 4YO with major upside from the rail

 

RACE 7

5-Doctor Butch – Classy millionaire had stretch traffic issues last week, beaten chalk before that, may be cycling around & get the target he needs in a very competitive field

 

9-Calvin B – Repeated in game style, steamrolling first over & still pace home in :27 to hold off K-Lees Shakenbake, 1:49.2 performer here in 2016 continues his ascent from a tougher post

 

4-El Bloombito – Did some fine work here before the recent sick scratch, missed a month, then got parked & claimed last week, new trainer/owner Sean Bier has him well situated in a supreme handicapper’s puzzle

 

RACE 8

1-So Take That – Rallied from far back to win two of three prior to last week’s no-chance mile behind Jackson Brady, moves inside a competitive field to hail within striking range

 

8-Jackson Brady – Consistent gelding has been on a form spree, fought off pressure, held off City Pie & took a new mark of 1:51.4 in the process, logical threat despite a tougher draw

 

7-Legion Of Boom – Has won two of his last three, just a fifth off his lifetime mark given a great drive by Vinnie Ginsberg last week, must include

 

RACE 9

1-Unix Hanover – Beaten favorite grinded out a solid third from post ten & was claimed, now protected in a condition event & moves inside in good form

 

2-Joe Larry N Curly – Lightly-raced 4YO had his requisite first trip on Lasix here off the bench, qualifier on 1-24 worth noting, may ready to fire a serious shot from an inside post

 

4-Stratocaster – Off a couple of weeks since a dull seventh, go back to the 30-1 upset rally on January 7, draws in a prime spot to stalk & set up his late kick

 

RACE 10

1-Totally Dreamy – Gelding paced a pretty solid back half last week, gets his third consecutive class drop, moves inside & may offer some value

 

5-Giddy Up Delight – 11YO has clearly come to hand since the recent sick scratch, unleashed a convincing rally to take a round one division last week

 

8-The Fire Within – Just missed to surprisingly good Lucky Man in his second start after missing a month on 1-21, impossible trip last week, may find a way into despite post eight again

 

RACE 11

2-Boogiewoogiebrian – Finished with enough energy in his first start here to be considered a threat now, had missed 41 days, fine tuning by new barn, lands in a soft spot, post two again

 

1-Roger Mach Em – Has definitely cranked it up in his last two for Team Fusco, tried speed, was pressured & nailed late by the heavy favorite David’s Dream, now moves inside

 

4-Rock On The Hill – Comes off an impossible trip from post ten in his debut here, class & post relief makes him a contender in this so-so match up

 

RACE 12

7-Tauranga – Jack Franklin trainee has dropped in class for this Dash For The G Notes series, cycled around & bottomed them out to romp last week, major player despite a tougher assignment

 

1-Gravelsinmytravel – Boy, the Lasix sure kicked in last week when Campbell unleashed him to the mile of his life from post nine, how does he follow up from the rail?

 

3-Sir Sam’s Z Tam – Gelding is gathering steam on the comeback trail, shook loose late out of a shuffle to finish second to Gravelsinmytravel & lands an even better post
