RACE 1

8-Criminal Element – Interesting gelding shipping from Dover Downs where he beat N/W of 4, tough draws but comes off a noteworthy effort there, may be worth a swing

 

9-Buff – Stayed flat after consecutive breaks & just missed to the heavy favorite Majectic Sunset, moves outside, but always a dangerous controlling speed

 

4-Lion Brand – New acquisition for Richie Johnson rebounded with another easy confident qualifier on Lasix & draws well after get parked on 1-26

 

RACE 2

6-Muscle Diamond – Missed a couple of weeks, yet was allowed to control the front end & steal away last week, did the same thing on 1-13, continues to build stamina for possible stakes engagements

 

4-Opulent Yankee – Ventured over to Yonkers & almost went all the way there from psot six, previous upset here further indicated a return to form

 

5-Crosbys Clam Bake – Always a major speed threat, sat the pocket behind heavily favored Muscle Diamond & came up just half a length shy last week, third try off a sick scratch now

 

RACE 3

4-Playboy Rusty – Was dropping subtle hints before slingshotting off cover to a 15-1 upset last week, tries to keep the positive trend going with a slight class hike

 

2-Keystone Blade – Offered a serious late bid & finished third behind standout Mostinterestingman, third try off a sick scratch here from another inside post

 

5-Angel Rusty – Nothing wrong with her last two starts here, hit the board again as a solid runner up to runaway Mostinterestingman, a fast pace set up would help her cause

 

RACE 4

2-Leave Your Mark – Recent Team Harmon acquisition ships in off two straight tighteners @ Yonkers, the latest a wide rally in an added distance race, draws well here                                                     

 

6-Winemaster Hanover – Was claimed for the fifth straight start & off another solid effort, consistent gelding has done well for everybody & lands right back in for the same price

 

1-Time Will Tell All – Another Yonkers shipper repeatedly bogged down in mile & one quarter races, class & post relief, plus distance reduction makes him a consideration

 

RACE 5

4-Exquisite Glide – Was freshened again & finished a solid third off the qualifier, Tony Alagna trainee with potential from post four again

 

1-Hyway Marcus – Dangerous drop down candidate for Team Harmon, twice hit the board against tougher last month

 

2-Rose Run Quickley – Drops back to the level of the easy win two starts back & draws inside to duplicate that effort

 

RACE 6

1-Betabcool N – New Zealand import jogged in her lone qualifier on Lasix, draws the rail at the next to bottom level, tough to gauge, may need one or two

 

5-Odds On Key West – Alagna tuned mare offered some sneaky late pace in her comeback from post eight & certainly has license to improve

 

7-Melanies Sharkette – Richie Johnson trainee has won three of her last four with authority, steps back up in price off the mile of her life

 

RACE 7    

1-Swift Warrior – Steamrolled to victory in a sparkling debut for the Harmon stable & figure to be even better in his second start off the bench

 

4-O U Sexy Guy – Picked up Brett Miller & closed for a minor share in his return to the mile track, gets some needed class & post relief here

 

3-I C Caviar – Drops & draws well again off a big first over effort, proven winner here for Irish Joe may be on the verge of an overdue win

 

RACE 8

8-Watkins – Dropped back to this level & just missed two weeks ago, blew these away by seven lengths on January 13, tactical speed puts him in play

 

4-Mostinterestingman – Gelding has unleashed two straight blowouts for Team Burke, including a career best 1:56.2, draws well & certainly merits this test for class

 

9-Sheer Flex – Fresh claim off two straight wins for this price & took a new mark of 1:54.1 last week, moves outside, yet remains a major threat

 

RACE 9

2-Robocall Hanover – Consistent Burke trainee took a couple of weeks off after stealing one on the engine, draws inside & faces some more experienced mares, may be up to it

 

4-Blush Hanover – Scored an overdue win with a perfect trip on the drop down two starts back, launched too far behind Mac’s Secure last week & draws better in good form

 

5-Joyful Game – Suffered another tough loss when she stormed home just a neck shy of Mac’s Secure last week, sets up her rally from another midpack stalking post

 

RACE 10

1-Hugh Hefner N – Team Harmon trainee returns to the mile track, hit the board against better here back in December & pushes off from the rail

 

6-Titus Seelster – Just missed by a neck with pace at both ends, drops a notch & anything similar makes him a serious contender

 

7-Mister Truth – Gets another class drop off a rare miscue, been knocking heads with much better this season

 

RACE 11

7-Gurl Bank K – Talented filly for Andrew Harris took a mark of 1:51.3 at two, won her comeback qualifier in solid fashion & may be too class for these

 

8-Total Miss – Another intriguing Dover Downs shipper was a top contender in N/W of 5 there, tough post, but picks up Super Brett

 

1A-Ava N Ella – Grey filly added Lasix & aired it out in an impressive debut here, lightly-raced 4YO tackles post ten, but with plenty of upside
