RACE 1

8-Muscle Almighty – Took 14 starts to break his maiden with a convincing wire-to-wire @ Pocono, so ships in brimming with confidence & poised to fire from the outside in a light field

 

4-Eastern Promise – 0 for 20, but flashed some promise here with decent finishes in stakes action this summer, draws well to rebound off a miscue @ Saratoga for a reputable barn

 

1-What A Knockout – Lightly raced 2YO filly has quickly found her best stride in three starts since the sick scratch, broke her maiden going all the way @ Harrah’s Philadelphia & lands the pole

 

RACE 2

3-Miss Me Yet – Team Teague shipper finished third again in the Harrington Open as the beaten favorite on Tuesday, steady 4YO wheels right back on short rest, draws inside & figures to thrive down the longer stretch here

 

1-Abbijade Hanover – Burke trainee took a mark of 1:49.4 here in the slop back on July 7, struggled in her last two @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, yet in line for her ideal stalking trip here

 

6-Arielle Lynn – Elevated her game to take a small piece in the Yonkers Open recently, not sure how she’ll adjust to the mile track in this intriguing field, but she’s certainly strong in the win column

 

RACE 3

4-Coogan – Ships in fresh off two very encouraging efforts in PA, a narrow loss timed in 1:54.2, then displayed sudden speed from post eight @ Pocono, may have sparked a turnaround & draws well in a wide open field

 

6-Splashed – Note the recent barn change to Team Orange Crush, which paid immediate dividends in the 1:54.2 comebacker @ Pocono, forgive the miscue @ Yonkers last out, gelding lands in a real easy spot here

 

7-Deacon Tony – Burke trainee had some stakes experience this season & owns a mark of 1:56 here, needs to overcome a challenging draw & recent breaking issues

 

RACE 4

2-Hail Damage Blues – Team Fanning filly recently graduated to tougher N/W of 5 company @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, fourth just behind Chillin It De Vie last out & draws inside that rival

 

7-Chillin It De Vie – Steady filly rallied to a huge 40-1 upset @ Harrah’s Philadelphia two starts back, followed by her usual late surge to hit the board again, fits well here & banks on a fast pace

 

6-Bettor Chill Out – Horse-for-the-course has thrived here in the past, she’s come around in her last three, wired easier in the slop @ Pocono two starts back

 

RACE 5

1-Mr Jagerbomber – Team Teague freshman prepped well with a pair of winning qualifiers, then outkicked as the beaten favorite in his debut, lands the rail here against soft opposition

 

7-Henry Hill – Lightly-raced Alagna trainee romped in his second career start on Lasix despite a 26-day layoff, taps into his potential further by firing out from a demanding post

 

6-Yo Apollo Creed – Broke his maiden with a tailor made trip & sharp 1:51 here back on 7-22, regained his top stride with a close second @ Pocono last out & rates contender status

 

RACE 6

5-Express Stride N – New Zealand import won his American debut with a wide rally @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, then got outkicked third as the heavy favorite again, fresh threat fits well here from an ideal midpack stalking post

 

3-Talent Soup – 3YO Pace & EBC finalist was a 1:48.4 blowout winner in the slop here back on July 1, draws inside fresh off an energetic score @ Harrah’s Philadelphia

 

4-Calvin B – Veteran horse-for-the-course has often put his best foot forward here, recent winner @ Plainridge ran into a 1:49 Open winner @ Vernon Downs last out & gets a favorable draw here

 

RACE 7

9-Ashley’s Husband – Took a mark of 1:49.1 here in 2016, struggled with only seven starts this season, blowout winner in 1:51.3 @ Saratoga with the trainer driving two starts back

 

6-Jacksrluckytoo – Team Harmon gelding has had a long, productive campaign, 1:49.4 winner here this season has cycled forward in his last two & returns here at a reduced level

 

8-Perseverant – 1:51.2 winner here in 2017 had excuses in his last two, gets further class relief & searches for a live cover flow from a challenging post

 

RACE 8

5-IYQ YQR – Still recall his strong win here last December, rounding into form after a sick scratch & gets substantial class relief for this G Notes series

 

7-Ring Warrior – Has thrived here in the past, landing on the fringes since the claim against comparable stock & his sharp gate speed puts him in play

 

3-So Take That – 8YO gelding was a winner here the past two seasons & always strong in the win column, has a big chance to revive his form in this soft spot

 

RACE 9

7-Stakeout – 4YO flashed some solid form here this summer, had excuses in his last three, with some better luck he has the sheer speed to surprise this light division

 

6-Moonlight Ransom – 0 for 26 this season, yet just missed on 8-6 fresh off the claim, back to the scene of a 1:50.2 mark here in 2016

 

5-Jumbo Jet N – Winless in 2017, struggling in all of his recent starts & remarkably the beaten favorite two starts back @ Yonkers, class relief makes him one to fear

 

RACE 10

6-Twincreeks Jack – 1:50.2 winner here this season faltered in his last two elsewhere, Rick Dane, Jr. reclaim can take charge & dominate this crew

 

2-Last Dragon – 1:50.3 winner @ The Big M in 2017 always capable of unleashing some blinding speed, drops in class & draws well to assert himself

 

7-Howsaboutakiss – Hasn’t been a serious threat recently, but tackled much tougher when last seen here & can overcome the demanding post with his gate speed

 

RACE 11

1-Jazebel De Vie – 1:55.1 winner here in 2016, go back to the strong third with a :27.3 on 8-4, that kind of effort makes her a contender as she returns to the Big M in a real soft spot

 

3-Party On The River – Only one for 17 in 2017, but we’ll give him his first start in two months, tighter now, remains at a reduced level & draws inside

 

8-Murmur Hanover – Classy gelding just shy of $700,000 ships in from Charlottetown where he comes off a deadheat win in the slop, fires from the outside & may go a long way

 

RACE 12

8-Four Hour Nap – Seen her act here before, only one for 21 this season, stalking type gets some serious class relief & figures to be blasting for position

 

6-Cedar Hall Heiress – 1:52.1 winner here this season off an interference break @ Pocono, another drop in class could spark her form

 

1-Aarin Hanover – One for 20 in 2017, but has come around in her last two on smaller tracks, heading in the right direction for this very light match up
