2-Can’t Touch It – Solid runner up to a dominant Sister’s Promise last week, her dam is a sister to International Moni, 1:51.4 [$775,463], Takter trainee may be on the verge from an inside post


6-Global Pageant – Consistent Credit Winner filly stepped up with two strong seconds while pace compromised chasing the same heavy favorite in Red Mile Grand Circuit action


4-Queen Of Trix – Finished with crisp late trot to hit the board behind Sister’s Promise & Can’t Touch It & draws better with plenty of upside potential



3-Odds On Stephanie – Lightly-raced Tony Alagna trainee was freshened up for the Red Mile Grand Circuit & picked up a check in a sizzling 1:47.3 mile, lands in a prime spot to shine


5-Airborne Hanover – Offered some decent late pace in her adjustment to the mile track here, look for her to lay closer to the fractions in this soft match up


4-Someangelsomewhere – The other Tony Alagna-tuned filly in here hasn’t raced since late July when she wired foes @ Yonkers, may be ready to contend in this wide-open affair



4-Hanna Dreamgirl – Returns to the scene of her mark of 1:56 back in late July, a close third in the Jim Doherty Memorial, stands out in this one for Team Toscano


1-Big Wheezy – Trixton filly hasn’t missed the board in eight starts, scratched sick off a narrow loss in the Simpson, looms a stalking threat despite the missed time


3-Southwind Percy – Another contender for Nifty Norman, Muscle Hill filly needed to acclimate after a sharp narrow loss from post seven @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, draws well as a prime opportunist



5-Sweet Diamond – From the first crop of 2014 Pacer of the Year, Breeders Crown winners on both sides here, fresh off her maiden breaker with a nice late burst @ The Red Mile


4-Darn Tootn Hanover – Just missed with a sharp late surge in her first start here & third time Lasix, has a big chance to stalk & pop off that encouraging effort


2-JK Mardi Says – Dam is a sister to JK Endofanera, 1:48.2 [$2,049,580], graduated to the Grand Circuit & picked up a check in the Bluegrass, another promising well-bred prospect for the potent Team Johansson



4-Captain Mckee – From the sensational first crop of two-time Pacer of the Year Captaintreacherous, erupted in :26.2 to break his maiden, then a twice beaten favorite with excuses in his last two


3-Odds On Boca Raton – One of three distinct possibilities in here for Tony Alagna, just had a taste of Grand Circuit action with Lasix added, 1:53.4 winner here this season


5-Century Ferrari – Fresh off an eye-catching narrow loss in a crisp :26.3 here last week at 64-1, has license to move forward off that inspiring second career start



4-Waterway – First crop of The Captains has been impressive, took a sharp mark of 1:50.3 @ The Red Mile, look for him to be aggressive in this spot for Team Alagna


5-Mac’s Power – Went all the way in a well-controlled career best last week, a major threat to repeat off that excellent acclimating mile


3-American Admiral – Yet another promising pupil for Tony Alagna, seems to have ramped it up in his last two in Lexington & continues to improve in this soft division



1-Soul Strong – Father Patrick colt stayed flat, saved ground & rallied to just miss in a terrific acclimating mile here last week & back on the rail to stalk n pop a wide-open field


7-Don’t Let’em – The Peter Haughton Memorial winner in an astounding 1:51.4 track & stakes record returns after breaks in three consecutive races & qualified okay for Team Takter & draws a demanding post


5-Lucky Weekend – Made a break after winning four of his previous six starts, took a mark of 1:54.2 two starts back in Lexington, can rebound in his second try for his new barn



1-Memo – Brittany Farms-Tony Alagna-tuned son of Trxton was left in the wake of Seven Hills last week, moves inside to work out an ideal stalking trip & turn the tables


9-Seven Hills – Muscle Hill colt remained undefeated with a decisive score in only his third career start, tougher draw, but his needle is pointing skyward


5-No Drama Please – Bounced back off a break again & took no prisoners here last week, Trixton colt draws a bit better off that sharp new mark for Team Orange Crush



1-Caviart Darlin’ – Captaintreacherous sister to Darlinonthebeach, 1:48.1 [$1,034,998] kicked home in :26.3 to win her second start, lands the pole for Team Johansson & the sky is the limit


3-Alkippe – Consistent Sweet Lou filly went wire-to-wire in a well-controlled career best 1:53.4 last week, looms large as a result, yet this is a more competitive match up


5-JK American Beauty – Hasn’t missed the board in ten career starts, a close third in the NYSS Final, sick scratch a minor concern, another Nancy Johansson threat here



8-Pappy Go Go – Shows a couple of back-to-back on-the-board finishes @ Mohawk last month, qualified well here for the high percentage Andrew Harris, gate speed puts this fresh threat in play


7-Swancredit – Steady gelding with speed to overcome a challenging post, almost took them all the way from the same post last week, may be the one to knock off again


9-Don Dorado – Plenty of back class here, scored two in a row @ Rideau Carlton last month, tough draw, but owns blastoff speed
