4-Parkavenuejulieann – Chased the undefeated favorite Painted Lady with a sharp :26.2 last week, draws well off that excellent acclimated mile


7-Let’s Fall In Love – Only one for 10 as a 2YO, yet just missed in the KYSS Final, third in the NYSS Final, Burke trainee qualified against superior mares like Darlinonthebeach, sister to millionaire Romantic Moment poised for another stakes season 


2-Danikova – The other promising Burke-tuned Bettor’s Delight filly went 0 for ten at two, had some stakes experience, qualified okay from the same inside post, deserves a long look 



1-Dejarover – Just two for 29, but comes off a rebound effort in which he rallied to be a solid runner up to favored Donatover & lands the rail to improve further


3-Lovely Lynnly – Late-blooming 4YO mare draws inside fresh off a pair of strong qualifiers, her latest a handy 1:54.4, anything similar makes her one to knock off


4-Seven Roses – Flashed sharp early speed to establish position & held third behind Dejarover last week, just missed to standout Law Of Attraction on 3-23, stalking threat again



4-Wild Smile – Big M lover stormed home to score with his familiar late kick from the same inside post two starts back, used hard from post nine last time & may hold a slight class edge


3-Gold Medal Swan – Tough to go against this razor sharp gelding off back-to-back lifetime marks for Mark Silva & rewarded with an improved post 


7-Hot Summer Knight – Pulled off a last-to-first post nine upset on 3-23, has continued to finish well from tough spots, needs some mayhem up front



3-Piranha Fury – 0 for 11 at two, yet transitions into her 3YO season off a solid qualifier with trotting hopples removed & inside draw in a wide-open affair


4-Casino King Deo – Looked like he was finding his best stride with that third on 3-23, then broke again, impeded @ Yonkers last out, back on the mile track & in a soft spot for Team Burke


5-Made It Happen – 0 for ten, but give her the benefit of a much needed comeback mile last week, has a chance to step up off that effort in this complete toss up 



6-Mattjestic Tempo – Showed vast improvement for Pat Lachance when she stormed home to just miss in her second start off the bench


8-Joyful Game – 1:54.2 winner here in the slop this season gets some much needed class relief, banks on a fast pace with a tougher, outside draw


7-Blush Hanover – 0 for 13 season on view, hit the board in her last two as the beaten favorite, post seven again for her third try at this bottom condition



4-Andy M – Runner up in the Yonkers Open two starts back off an interference break there, ships in sharp form for Scottie D & draws well in a field ripe for the taking


5-Fly On – Qualified energetically after five months off & solid 3YO season, promising son of Muscle Hill strong in the win column & returns in a field of question marks for Team Orange Crush 


7-Buen Camino – Competitive in the Yonkers Open before the recent four-month break, miscued off a nice winning qualifier here & returns to the mile track in an up-for-grabs field



4-Perseverance – Forced wide around dull cover in round one, pace compromised & got going too late in :26.3 last week, poised to pounce at a price from the post four again


7-Sutton – Slapped the trotting hopples back on & rebounded big time off the break in the first leg with a scintillating new mark of 1:51.3 from the same post last week, looks like the one to beat, runner up & stablemate Opulent Yankee is on his game as well


9-Deep Impact - $40,000 Harrisburg buy last Fall fresh off a sparkling new mark in his debut for his new connections, tries to builds on that from a tougher outside assignment



5-May I Cruise West – Forced wide from never-never land & was flying home in :26.4 last week, draws a bit better in a field begging to be beaten


1-Pembroke Joey – Took his mark here last season, draws the rail with Andrew McCarthy fresh off a gutsy first over crush @ Plainridge & was facing tougher before that


7-The Fire Within – Shuffled out of range after a decent start last week, just missed before that as the beaten favorite, tougher post, but was ramping up for his new barn



5-Keystone Riptide – Love this mare’s guts & determination, solid season so far, returns to the scene of her 1:51 career best two starts back


3-Roselily – Raced well while overmatched in the Burning Point Series, steady & improving 4YO acclimated now & gets class & post relief


8-PenPal – Took a mark of 1:49.2 here last season, three strong qualifiers for Pat Lachance, big 

chance fresh off the bench despite her outside assignment



5-Tober – Forced wide off a soft, controlled pace last week, 10YO regained his form in the comeback trail & drops again
