3-Hudson River – Takter trainee & NJSS winner here this season has tackled the best in major stakes action, homebred brother to millionaire The Bank shuffled third in the Breeders Crown behind two monsters


4-Reign Of Honor – Gelding has transformed since adding trotting hopples & that was one powerhouse performance in the Kindergarten Classic Final last week, tough to deal with off that impressive upset


2-No Drama Please – This Trixton colt was certainly at his best when he went wire-to-wire from post seven back on 10-12, can rebound making his second start off the sick scratch 



1-Windsong Jack – Flaunted his back class & ran up the score under a stranglehold in his second start for Team Burke last week, moves inside & any semblance of that mile would make him untouchable


3-Lone Wolf Terror – Recent claim was hammered down to 2-1 favorite & suddenly turned his game right around, took a mark of 1:50.1 here this season, draws well to be forwardly placed


5-Nobles Finesse – Was left in the wake of Lone Wolf Terror off some solid qualifiers, makes his second start in a couple of months & owns plenty of back class



3-Special Honor – Father Patrick filly has been very consistent against top level company, chased a standout Woodside Charm in the Breeders Crown, looking for a stalk n pop scenario here


5-Evident Beauty – Steady Trixton filly was a solid runner up in the Peaceful Way, then rallied to go two-for-two @ The Red Mile, has now missed 36 days after that lone start last month


4-Princess Deo – Kicked home in a sharp :27.2 to win a Bluegrass division, closed from a long way back to grab second in the Kindergarten Classic Final, this Noel Daley trainee has talent



4-Major Starlight – Recent Nick Surick claim has twice hit the board here & once for a $10,000 tag, raced okay in a G Notes Final last week, 11-time winner this season draws well in a softer match up


2-Intheblinkofaneye – 13YO with a ton of back class & history of success here, makes his second start off the bench & ships into a real easy spot 


1-No Tears Blue Chip – Arrives just one for 27 this season, beaten favorite in the slop @ Vernon Downs last out, yet lands the rail in a field riddled with question marks



6-Ocean Colony – 4YO still relatively fresh with only nine starts this season, just missed in his first start after the bar switch & this is a slightly easier match up


3-Rock N Motion – 3YO from the first crop of Pet Rock colt freshened up by Team Burke, finished well in the comebacker @ Hoosier Park & draws better here to tap his potential


1-Jacksrluckytoo – Team Harmon stalwart & Big M lover flashed his familiar late kick to hit the board last week, makes his third start off the bench & finally moves inside



3-Gotarockinmypocket – Another Pet Rock shipper getting over some recent sickness & makes his second start for Team Harmon against much easier from an inside draw


6-Terror Of The Nite – Polishing off a pretty solid campaign with a season mark of 1:51.3 here, current form looks okay, strong number in the win column & now drops a notch


7-Mach Déjà Vu – Gelding has displayed speed & faded in both starts here since shipping south into the Burke barn, gets another shot at this bottom condition & needs a drastic turnaround



5-Geez Joe – Team Miller trainee surged home from an impossible spot into a :53.4 back half in his Big M debut, draws better off that deceptively good acclimating mile


3-Bettor’s Edge – Tons of back class here, qualifiers here were superb, second try off the bench from an inside post with Scottie Z, almost looks too good, right?


2-Dragon Time – 3YO went all the way by setting a controlled pace & held on gamely in his Team Burke debut here last week, steady sort has a big chance to build on that from another inside post



4-K Ryan Bluechip – Virgil Morgan, Jr. has come around recently, stormed home from a tough spot to hit the ticket last week & draws better while sporting some strong numbers 


7-Mcthriller – Just missed in his Richard Johnson debut, then simply exploded to a new mark of 1:50.4 last week, demanding post & bumped back up in class, but has a new lease on life


10-Play Jet Ray – Recent Team Burke acquisition took two starts to break through for his new barn, but that was sandwiched by two breaks, not sure how he fits here, plus post ten to deal with as he adjusts to the new venue



4-Rock The Nite – Andrew Harris trainee has tackled tougher recently as high as the Preferred, current form looks strong enough, another class drop & same inside post give him the nod


7-Bushwacker – Gets his fourth consecutive class drop after three impossible trips on the comeback trail, tougher post this week, but could blow these away on his best day


1-Life Happened – 1:52.3 winner here this season has landed on the fringes fourth in both starts here, but now gets some class relief for a barn looking for a spark



4-Magnum Mike – Struggling this season, shows a recent third for this price, but how much will the 10YO be able to turn around fresh off the Team Burke claim?


1-Show Me Up – Beaten chalk set a solid pace & settled for second in a G Notes Final last week, classy 11YO was a sharp winner in the slop before that & looms large from the rail


3-Western Toro – Caught fire off the $4,000 claim @ Vernon Downs, all the way in the slop here two weeks ago, draws inside to take charge again for The Prime Minister



3-Grand Theft – Sports a mark of 1:51.2 @ Plainridge, took his acclimating tour & now can take full advantage of some class & post relief


6-May I Cruise West – Working on an 0 for 29 season, rallied to hit the board here two starts back, has been a contender here in the past & just needs the right set up


4-Awesum Ace – Has been speedy & effective when able to avoid miscues @ Vernon Downs, draws well to make an immediate impression in this soft match up



8-Bay Rum – Was a hot item this past Summer when he took a mark of 1:51.2, makes his third start off the bench, dips in price, reunited with Andrew McCarthy & overcame post eight back in early July


3-Ideal Romance – Hasn’t gotten the trips to threaten the $10,000 types in his last two, now drops back to the level of his narrow loss from post nine on 10-20 & draws inside again


4-Fcee N – Another live shipper for The Prime Minister John MacDonald arrives fresh off a solid effort as the beaten favorite, makes his second start in two months & draws well
