10-Moon Bridge – Another promising Ake Svanstedt pupil uncorked a solid rally to win his first morning trial, then ran into a revved up Synergy, now post ten is an issue, but he could already be a step or two ahead of most of these, dam is a sister to Whiskey Tax, 1:52.1 [$1,019,405]



5-Hello Tomorrow – Muscle Hill filly hails from a winning family that includes Dejarmbro, 1:52.2 [$1,137,135], fresh off two excellent preps she dominated her Kindergarten Classic division, her future is bright, look for her on or near the lead


8-Hypnotic AM – Impressive Marcus Melander trainee prepped sharply here, then went two-for-two in NYSS, draws outside a strong field, but looks like a major league player


2-Spoiled Princess – Suddenly took charge & held on to win a NJSS division in :27.4, then had no chance from post nine in that final, big chance to regroup from an inside post



5-Sans Default – Team Burke-tuned Muscle Hill filly caught the winning habit with two stakes in a row in PA, overcoming outside posts & roughed first over last out, sister to Southwind Frank, 1:52.1 [$1,950,887]

4-Synergy – $275,000 yearling won two of three baby races, then crushed foes in his Kindergarten Classic debut, scratched sick from Leg #2, which leaves a slight question mark, draws well again, out of a sister to Federal Flex, 1:53.3 [$735,534]

7-Bestseller Hanover – Added Lasix & runner up to a raging Kimberlee in the comebacker last week, more demanding post here, she’s got the speed & credentials to fire out & take charge



6-Diva’s Image – 2018 Golden Girls upsetter took the requisite tour of the oval in this year’s renewal as a much-needed start, we all know she’s capable of a wicked late move, was strong in the win column last year, more major stakes are ahead of her & may be ready to deliver


10-Caviart Ally – Assigned the outside off a tremendous effort from post ten in the Golden Girls, throwing a scare into Shartin N, classy mare was at her best with a 1:48 mark in the Rainbow Blue Final & we’ll look for another blastoff


5-Bettor’s Up – Note the third to Caviart Ally in :25.2 back on June 28, fresh off an easy win from post eight @ Yonkers, reunited with Tim Tetrick & might be worth a swing for a price

6-Joe Joe Joe – Since his explosive rally & new mark of 1:50.2 back on June 22 he rose up the class ladder, dipped back & tried to close from last chasing Odds On Lauderdale in most recent, could surprise this wide-open crew with the right set up


10-Odds On Lauderdale – Beaten favorite was pace compromised, forced wide & finished a hard-charging second by a neck in his second start off the bench, lands outside again, but sharpening his sword & showing his class for Team Alagna


3-Rather Swell – Took a mark of 1:50 here this season, suddenly regained winning form with a class drop two starts back @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, draws well to stalk the speed & take advantage of the longer stretch

9-Wicked Wizard – Interesting Kadabra colt with a $120,000 price tag has won two of three in PA & broke in the other start, tough draw here, yet has loads of promise for Team Svanstedt


5-Hatikvah – Steamrolled first over & gamely held off Marveloustrix for a new mark of 1:55.1 last week, finding his best stride for a top trotting barn


6-Marveloustrix – Made up a lot of ground & came flying home to be a close second to Hatikvah last week, just one for 22, but this filly has regained her confidence



6-Eurobond – Has quickly regained top form with two-straight blowouts & new mark of 1:51.1 since the switch to Team Orange Crush, will be tough to overhaul with any semblance of those last two miles


1-Southwind Chrome – Switched to trainer Jeff Cullipher, added Lasix & promptly went down the road in a sparkling career best 1:51.2 two starts back, toss the Hambo Maturity debacle, this is a prime spot back on Lasix


5-Swan Chase – Took a ton of tote action & responded with a cover trip rally off a slow pace & deadheat for win in his Big M debut last week, great acclimating mile & back class lurking 



7-Tall Dark Stranger – $330,000 price tag & this is a special one, two-for-two in morning trials here, caused quite a buzz with that 1:52.4 second baby race, second foal of Precocious Beauty, 1:50.1 [$838,004], the first was 1:51 performer Beautyonthebeach
