RACE 1

1-Dealt A Winner – 2015 Cane Pace upsetter in a world record 1:47.3 makes his 5YO debut off a couple of strong qualifiers, 1:48.2 winner here last year has a chance to steal this from the rail

 

5-Bettor’s Edge – Classy 8YO closing in on $2 million tailed off in the Levy Series & hasn’t raced in 35 days, 1:49.4 winner here back in January & early season purchase loves the mile track

 

6-Doctor Butch – Another classy $1.2 million winner who always thrives here, managed to exploit a soft spot @ Freehold after missing time off a sick scratch

 

RACE 2

3-Tac’s Delight – 12YO gelding was an easy winner for this price three starts back, drops back down & draws the same inside post for Anthony Napolitano

 

2-Don Dorado – Gelding owns some back class, seems to be trending in the right direction recently, draws inside to be forwardly placed in a camera-shy field

 

9-Luv At First Site – Stormed home from out of the clouds to pull a big 36-1 upset two starts back, followed up that career best with an even fifth last week, at the mercy of the pace here

 

RACE 3

5-Victorydaze Wilwin – 0 for 16 this season, but flashing more of his late kick in his last two, 1:51.4 winner here in the slop last year

 

4-Last Dragon – Has only hit the board once in 12 starts this year, but hinting with some signs of life, got parked over an off track last week, draws well & makes his second start for Jody Riedel

 

3-Some Power – Recent acquisition for Vincent Fusco, Jr. was freshened & ships in off a strong third @ Freehold, finds a real soft spot & lands the same inside post here

 

RACE 4

4-Twincreeks Jack – Gelding has been knocking on the door, was all out on the rail in a Dash For The G Notes Final last week, finds a softer spot here

 

2-Stormin Rustler – 13YO just missed a huge upset three starts back, flashed a bit of late life from post eight last week, moves inside & slices his tag in half for Freehold’s leading trainer

 

5-Lemon Drop Hall – 13YO winning with regularity for this price @ Freehold, tactical speed & consistency makes him a player in this match up

 

RACE 5

10-Dorel – Gelding won his first two career starts here last month before trying PASS in the slop @ The Meadows, returns with the ten-hole, but with plenty of talent & potential

 

6-Last Gunfighter – Kicked of his career with two straight blowouts @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, then broke in the slop @ The Meadows, big chance to rebound & flaunt his obvious upside

 

4-Hallie’s Comet – One for 14, but was flying from far back in his Big M debut from post ten off a sick scratch, draws better in a pretty competitive match up

 

RACE 6

6-Lyons Snyder – Knocked heads with top sophomores in several 2016 stakes, qualified big for Takter, then suffered broken equipment in the comeback last week, bounce back time

 

4-Rockeyed Optimist – Kicked home in a sharp :26.3 to romp here in the slop back on 2-25,

freshened off a sick scratch, solid qualifier, back class & strong in the win column

 

3-JK Will Power – Nosed out at this level two starts back, then overmatched in the Graduate Series last week, draws an improved post to trip out in an intriguing match up

 

RACE 7

1-Millenium Wheel – Recent form elsewhere has been dull, but recall he won two in a row here in late March & this is a prime spot for him to revive that form

 

2-Iammrbrightside N – NZ bred unleashed a mighty :26 sweep off cover to romp impressively in his US debut last week, builds on that in a field of question marks

 

7-Preparty – Mark McDonald drove him perfectly last week & he was outgamed for second, gets some class relief & can easily overcome the outside draw with a blast off

 

RACE 8

3-Play The Field – Severely pace & trip compromised over the off track last week, rallied for another upset before that, recent Eric Foster claim draws better to rebound

 

2-Grave Dancer – Just one for 14 in 2017, but was forced to chase the superior Ocean Colony last week with a :26.2, gets some class relief & draws inside

 

8-Jacksrluckytoo – Gelding has taken a tumble down the class ladder, parked as the beaten favorite last week, sets up his big late move & hopes for a fast pace target

 

RACE 9

6-War-N-Munn – Finished a hard-charging third last week chasing the standout Nocturnal Bluechip, 1:52.1 winner here in 2017 is primed for his second start off the bench

 

2-Mister Truth – Beaten favorite just missed with pace at both ends two starts back, 1:52.4 winner here this season finds another ideal scenario

 

10-Ville Valo – Took advantage of some further class relief with a wide rally for second @ Harrah’s Philadelphia last out, note the barn change, could surprise despite post ten

 

RACE 10

5-Cherokee Ranger – Has come around in his last two with a big upset rally, then runner up to the heavy favorite in a G Notes Final last week, one to beat

 

1-Fraternity – Fires out from the rail fresh off an aggressive narrow loss as the heavy favorite with Tetrick, look for him to be on or near the lead again

 

10-Workandplayhard – Forced wide & just missed last week, 0 for 15 this season, but has displayed the kind of late kick that can make him a threat if there’s mayhem up front

 

RACE 11

7-Steady Pulse – Just one for 31 in 2016, but going on the fresh angle in this wide-open finale, owns a mark of 1:51.2 here in the slop & shows recent signs of life

 

2-Sizz Matty – Guessing N/W 4 & 5 in Delaware is tougher than this, 0 for his last 31 & dull form, but the class relief & inside draw could spell wake up

 

8-Honeys Dragon – By sheer process of elimination this 11YO gelding rates a look based on his back-to-back seconds @ Freehold recently, might appreciate the longer stretch here
