5-Stealth Hanover – Andover Hall colt removed the trotting hopples & put forth a solid 3YO debut from post eight chasing the heavily favored filly Myammie Drama, logically improves in a field ripe for the taking


3-Yes Mickey – Muscle Hill brother to 2007 Hambletonian runner up Adrian Chip, 1:54.2 [$1,124,584] added trotting hopples, behaved & cruised in his latest qualifier for Ake Svanstedt, gelding draws into a cozy spot for his sophomore debut


6- He’s Gone – Second foal out 2009 champion Poof She’s Gone, 1:53.1 [$1,312,093], flashed some promise at two, homebred was much better in his second qualifier for Nifty Norman



1A-Magic Presto – Upset Princess Aurora in the Goldsmith Maid, held off the highly regarded Ariana G in a well-rated second qualifier & compliments a formidable entry


3-Enterprise – More than lived up to the favorite’s hype & easily made it two-for-two in a sparkling 3YO debut, second foal out of a sister to Poof She’s Gone, 1:53.1 [$1,312,093]


2-Top Flight Angel – From the first crop of Archangel, 1:50 [$1,140,972], solid runner up to Enterprise from post seven, moves inside off that inspiring first start for Team Orange Crush



4-No Chaser – Put together a pretty decent back half & rallied to be a close second to the well-rated Dustlanemissmolly last week in an ideal acclimating mile for this 1:51.3 performer last year


6-Dustlanemissmolly – Hats off to Joe Bongiorno for seizing command & getting every ounce out this consistent mare last week, logically looms large off the mile of her life


7-Phyliss Jean – Came right back with a decisive score from post eight two starts back, then was barely outsprinting by Dustlanemissmolly last week, tactical speed puts her right back in play



2-Keene Olivia – Was severely trip & pace compromised & was charging home in a brisk :26.1 last week, gets another shot at this reduced level from an inside post after that needed acclimating mile


4-Blush Hanover – Consistent horse-for-the-course type launched a premature late bid for the lead, remains a huge threat after dropping to this level last


5-Rock Me Gently – Only two for 32 last year & off the board in all seven starts this season, brushed to the lead & faded to sixth in her Big M debut last week, but owns some back class & makes her second start for the raging Crocodile Man



5-Keenan – 9YO gelding with back class & distinct liking for the Big M, the key is his recent form revival & versatility, count on him to be forwardly placed in this soft match up


3-Extracurricular – 11YO has come around since the switch to trainer Kyle Spagnola, moves inside fresh off a strong second from post eight & Bob Heckkoff likes to send them


6-Landonfitz – Got to like the way this gelding has responded & trended in his last two, just missed in the Billings @ Yonkers after a solid second to Danish Durango here



5-Sheeza Shark N – Has been competitive here at this level this season, off a couple of no-chance trips @ Yonkers, due for a big score here


4-Scandalicious – Open winner @ Dover Downs this season has missed a couple of weeks since the fourth against our top mares class, drops into an ideal spot to stalk n pop


3-Glenferrie Bronte N – 10-time winner in 2016 knocking heads with top stock @ Yonkers, gets some class relief & draws well in a favorable match up



2-B Yoyo – Last week he dropped to this level, steamrolled to the top from post nine & fell just a buck shy, lands the pole in a wide-open, camera-shy field


4-Can Do – Draws well off two no-chance miles on smaller tracks, we know this gelding can do here, plus gets some class relief & Gingras


8-J A T O – Roared past some top trotters in his return to the mile track, but hasn’t raced in 28 days, draws outside & changes barns to Ake Svanstedt



9-Glitzy Gal – Got off to a slow starts from the rail, was forced wide & just missed in :27 in her 3YO debut, lightly-raced filly moves outside, but with a ton of upside


1-Annapolis Hall – 0 for 12 gelding was a solid third in his second start of the season with trot at both ends, rewarded with the pole position while going in the right direction


7-Promo Kemp – Team Burke trainee was an energetic second in his sophomore debut a few weeks ago here, tougher post, yet poised to step up



4-Exquisite Glide – Receives his second consecutive class drop & draws inside with a chance to spark a disappointing season so far


7-Luv At First Site – I have no idea where that mile came from last week, rallied out of nowhere with the mile of his life at 36-1, must prove it was no fluke


8-Downundermatter – Gelding continues to plummet down the class ladder after landing on the fringe fourth in his last three, but post eight complicates matters



4-Caviart Cherie – 1:51.3 winner at two with Grand Circuit experience didn’t qualify with much, but this is a real soft spot for her comebacker


1-Gypsy Rose – Lightly-raced Burke trainee wasn’t heard from in her 3YO debut chasing the standout Twinkle, back inside a finale that has no such standouts


8-That’s How We Roll – Product of the NYSS program makes her second start as a 3YO in a very soft N/W of 2, must find a way into it from post eight
