2-Helpisontheway – This Linda Toscano-tuned Chapter Seven colt has quickly found his best stride, just missed to eventual EBC winner Six Pack in 1:52.1 before getting parked in that final, note the :26 & change final quarters to launch his 3YO season


3-Seviyorum – Last year’s Breeders Crown runner up to the great Manchego hit the ticket in nine of 13, nailed Samo Different Day with a wicked :27.1 sprint in the qualifier, Team Orange Crush have her ready & like her chances right off the hop


1-Samo Different Day – The consistent Takter Hambo hopeful on the board in 11 of 13 as a freshman, 2ndin the Peter Haughton & Matron Final, 3rdin the Breeders Crown & Valley Victory, controlling speed & nailed by Seviyorum in the latest qualifier



5-Betterthanbrie – That 1:52.3 qualifier here back on April 21 stands out in this field, has struggled to duplicate that & find his way, but this Takter project returns to the mile track after gaining some valuable experience


2-Ideal Life – Unraced 3YO from a productive family that includes a couple of sub 1:50 performers, debuts in a soft spot fresh off a winning qualifier at Gaitway


7-The Second Star – Assigned the outside with a lively upset in 1:53 back on April 27, caught in some tough spots in her last two, look for The Mann to send her into contention



4-Multitaskr Hanover – Has been knocking on the door here while dealing with challenging posts, finally moves inside to set up a winning rally for very capable Jennifer Lappe


5-Wild Smile – Caught him when he rallied to score his only win this season back on March 30, racing well while a tad overmatched in NY & fresh off a tough trip, returns to the mile track where he can thrive


3-Inukchuk Chuck – Failed to take advantage of a perfect second over trip, yet was pace compromised here on May 18, look for him to be within closer striking range



5-OK Heavenly – Had zero chance closing from last into a :54.3 back half, her one for 17 record this season is a concern, but this is a great spot for her to get aggressive


6-Stormtracker – Twice beaten favorite squandered a tailor made second over trip off a hot pace, yet has the class & form to redeem herself in this abbreviated field


4-Scandalicious – One for 15 in 2018, only two starts last month, has missed three weeks, but won a Blue Chip Matchmaker division & may actually hold a class edge



3-Misslarose – We all know what she’s capable off when on her game & she loves the Big M, held on for a new mark of 1:52.4 three starts back before running into the classy Broadway Donna, Team Burke trainee has a big chance to trip out


1A-Double L Lindy – Reeled off two straight blowouts, then set a rated pace & got gunned down by the razor sharp Celebrity Ruth in :27.1 last week, completes a formidable entry & lands in an ideal spot to rebound


1-Fly On – Hambletonian prospect last year has regained his top stride with aggressive efforts in his last two @ Harrah’s Philadelphia & draws inside for a prime opportunity



9-Voss Volo – Nice recovery from a miscue to just miss in NYSS on May 11, next a lively effort to make the EBC, too far back in that final, big threat despite another outside draw


8-Repentance – Lightly-raced Linda Toscano-tuned filly flashed some serious talent winning a qualifier here on May 12, then advance to the EBC Final, give her a chance with the right set up from a demanding post


6-Broadway Bruiser – Hambo eligible has hit the board in both starts this season, finished a solid second from a tough spot last week & may be on the verge



2-Cheap Thrills – Racing better on the comeback trail with Lasix, gets away from the raging Mylittlesurfergirl & in line for a perfect trip in a highly beatable field


4-Jenna Hanover – One for 19 in 2018, flashed some late life just behind Cheap Thrills from an impossible spot, now gets class & post relief


3-Limelight – Finished an even fourth in an okay transition to the mile track, draws better & may complete the top three in a best-of-the-rest scenario



4-King Cast – Chased a runaway Shady Mccoy with a solid effort for second last week, his one for 19 record this season is a concern, but this looks like an ideal spot for an overdue win


5-Master Kingpin – 4YO gelding has been pretty consistent & picked up his game a bit @ Freehold, give him a chance if the pace & trip set up in his favor


6-Joeyscash – 8YO ships in fresh off the mile of his life @ Pocono, almost went all the way in his previous two @ Freehold, some positives in a field of question marks



7-Crazshana – Was scratched sick after tackling some of the toughest trotters around, now drops a notch after a much-needed acclimating mile for Team Bamond


3-Gold Medal Swan – Gets away from the red-hot Double L Lindy, drops a notch, draw inside & has a chance to assert himself & pump up his strong winning percentage


4-Shady Mccoy – Gets the call to handle the class hike fresh off a no-doubt wire-to-wire blowout, Eric Abbatiello Big M lover may be the one to knock off again
