RACE 1

5-Wise Image – Sports a mark of 1:50.4 here & eight for 20 last season, nice qualifier on view & second start off the bench for this Team Harmon in a highly vulnerable field

 

3-Mr Carrotts – One for 16 this season, yet shows repeated tough trips against better, now gets class & post relief in a wide-open curtain raiser

 

6-Joe Joe Joe – Added Lasix & crushed a real weak field from post nine at only 4-1 in his Big M debut despite missing 18 days, how much more does Joe have for this slightly tougher match up?

 

RACE 2

6-Sharp Action Money – Settled down & won the qualifier with a crisp :25.2, then finished a solid third against some tough foes in the comebacker, 4YO Team Burke trainee poised to show more

 

7-Wager On Me – Another Delaware invader on a roll, Bettor’s Delight colt likes it on or near the lead, may adjust quickly to the mile track, takes charge & never look back

 

1-Goldberg – Team Teague sophomore hasn’t missed the board in five starts this season, outsprinted with a perfect trip as the heavy favorite 22 days ago, remains on a form spree

 

RACE 3

5-Kiwi Ideal N – Just missed in his last three here with well-driven efforts, now switches to The Bionic Man & lands the ideal midpack draw to set up his stalking style

 

1-Boogie Nights – Has come around at this level with a close second, then a convincing score last week, moves inside to set up his hard-charging style

 

4-Always A Diamond – Responded to the Gingras touch with a second  & win against these last month, beaten favorite got roughed up last week & as a chance rebound

 

RACE 4

1-Bring The Thunder – Note the fast-closing second in Leg 2 of the Wiggle It Jiggleit Series, no chance after a very slow start in that final, now lands the rail in a very competitive affair

 

7-Western Exposure – Flashed speed, then shook loose late to nose out Play Times Over in his 3YO debut last week, tougher post, yet the barn has come out guns blazing

 

5-Play Times Over – Carved out a perfect second over trip from post eight & nosed out by Western Exposure in an eye-catching Big M debut, big threat on the follow up for Team Teague

 

RACE 5

2-Donttellmeagain – Last year’s Graduate winner qualified well, then got bogged down by a dull flow in the crowded Golden Receiver, draws better to fire a better shot in his second start back

 

6-Sweet Rock – Zero chance from post ten in Leg 1 of the Golden Receiver with little flow, unleashed the season’s fastest 1:48.1 in the Preferred before that, big chance to rebound

 

3-Dealt A Winner – Runner up to HOY Mcwicked in the 2018 TVG Final qualified with vigor & obviously needed the comebacker from post 11, now eligible to step up & show his class

 

RACE 6

6-JK Parlay – Caught fire winning three in a row, changed barns & lowered his mark to 1:50.2 two starts back, chased a runaway last week, draws better in an intriguing match up

 

7-Rough Odds – Drops back down to the level of the well-driven upset three starts back, now the post is tougher, but his tactical speed & current form rates him a major contender

 

4-Incredible Shark – Used a class drop to regain his winning form & confidence last week, forced to step up a couple of notches, yet draws the same inside post

 

RACE 7

3-This Is The Plan – Matron & Progress Pace winner forced wide from a tough spot chasing a 1:50 winner in his much-needed comebacker from post ten, now moves inside for Team Burke

 

5-Dorsoduro Hanover – Breeders Crown champion & top earning 3YO last year was more active in his second qualifier, gutsy gelding can take a lot of air & looms large right off the hop

 

1-Rock Lights – Took a 1:49.4 mark @ Dover Downs back in late March, speedy Andrew Harris trainee owns some experience here & can avoid traffic pushing off from the rail9-None Bettor A - 

 

RACE 8

2-Blood Line – Pulled an 8-1 upset with a perfect two-hole trip fresh off the bench, speed tightened further @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, back here with post two again in a snug affair

 

9-None Bettor A – Pounced on this one & so did the betting public in a scintillating Big M debut blowout for Team Bongiorno, faces a stiffer test, yet this Aussie import may be even better

 

8-K Ryan Bluechip – Got another shot at this reduced level, thought he was going to prevail with his patented first over steamroll & just missed last week, Preferred winner is overdue

 

RACE 9

6-Trolley – His comeback from injury includes five Preferred wins already this season, pace & trip compromised in his last two, stamina & talent not a question, prime time to step up

 

3-Cruzado Dela Noche – Yonkers International Trot winner faltered in his last two events of 2018, but qualified with some vigor here & looks ready to contend from an inside post

 

5-Will Take Charge – Last year’s Cutler runner up has been sharpening his sword in the Yonkers Open, raced well here late last season & strong in the win column

 

RACE 10

1-Sams A Champ A – Dropped to this level & got nosed out with a perfect trip last week, this Aussie import is peaking from the rail now for a sharp barn

 

2-Backstreet Lawyer – Blitzed by a 1:49 winner last week, broken equipment before that, don’t like the one for 14 this season, but drops dangerously & lands post two again

 

6-Sagebrush Sid – Was absolutely flying in :25.4 in a blanket photo two starts back, somehow rallied for third from an impossible spot last week, now class relief may put him over the edge

 

RACE 11

2-Courtly Choice – The 2018 Pace & Jug winner aired it out in both qualifiers with sharp displays of speed, draws inside to avoid traffic & reunited with The Buckeye

 

8-Always A Prince – Unraced at two, then 2018 Indiana Pacer of the Year, has added Lasix & prepped in sharp fashion, may have plenty of speed to shoot at in this wild affair

 

4-Done Well – One of three Burke trainees uncorked a standout second qualifier, draws inside, expect Dexter Dunn to send up out of there & gain a tactical advantage

 

RACE 12

6-Bravo Tex N – Love the effort when he suffered a narrow loss from post eight with pace at both ends two starts back, beaten favorite @ Pocono last out looks live for Team Harmon

 

4-Another Daily Copy – Nothing in his first two starts this season, but his barn knows how to fine tune them, gets class & post relief & adds The Bionic Man

 

1-Life Happened – Shows beating better as the favorite back on 3-23, took a 1:51.2 mark here this season, serious drop down candidate from the rail in a wide-open field

 

RACE 13

6-Techino Hanover – 0 for 14 this season, arrives off a dull mile, but shows some recent competitive lines & versatility & ships into a real soft finale

 

2-Talk Show – Moves inside fresh off a big wake-up effort & narrow loss last week, expect more aggressive handling from Andy Miller

 

4-Camwiser – 14YO stayed on a roll with a solid third last week, draws better to set up a similar cover trip & rally, tough to leave out
