RACE 1

3-Sir Ritchie – This veteran has been gathering steam for the same claiming price @ Freehold for that track’s top barn & draws well to maintain that revived form

 

5-Daylyn Horizon – 1:51 winner here this season has hinted he’s on the verge of a winning effort, finally gets away from the streaking Preppy Art this week

 

1-R M Blackhawk – Finished a solid third to the red-hot Preppy Art on 11-15, set a strong pace @ Freehold last out, reunited with Andrew McCarthy with speed from the rail

 

RACE 2

6-Sunfirewindrain – Mohawk shipper arrives in a new barn fresh off a new mark of 1:54.4 three weeks ago, has a lot of potential & can acclimate quickly

 

1-Rogerthat Bluechip – Captaintreacherous colt has had some minor stakes experience, tough to gauge off his even qualifier, yet a stalking trip is imminent with Dexter Dunn

 

2-Island Of The Sea – First time starter finished well to a runaway in both qualifiers @ Dover Downs, draws inside & perhaps the toteboard will offer a clue

 

RACE 3

8-Illinimight – That recent win @ Harrah’s Philadelphia boosted his confidence, he was second to a big favorite What Chapter last week, rates highly in this match up despite a tough post here

 

6-Noble Warrawee – Just one for 36 this season, but shows three straight on-the-board finishes elsewhere recently, that lone win came here with a big rally in a Billings event back on May 25

 

2-Total Diva – 0 for 28 in 2019, yet has made a few positive moves recently, draws a better post in a real soft field & could surprise with a smooth trip

 

RACE 4

3-Milady Denver A – Draws inside again fresh off an excellent acclimating mile, finishing second to a heavy favorite & has a chance to stalk within closer striking range

 

2-Sweet Young Thing – This filly has been tackling much tougher N/W 5 company @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, new purchase now changes barns & lands in softer spot here

 

1-JB’s Shooting Star – Launched a well-timed rally to prevail as the favorite last week, now lands the rail for her key third start off the bench

 

RACE 5

3-Mister Accumulator – Resumed his winning ways in his second try off a recent sick scratch @ Freehold, draws well to be forwardly placed & make an immediate mile track transition

 

6-Preppy Art – Popular item at the claim box easily made it five in a row for four different barns, now a fresh claim for Freehold’s leading trainer looking to snap a losing skid at The Big M

 

7-Cheyenne Reider – 10YO with a winning record here ships back on a form spree @ Monticello, bumped up a notch in price & draws a demanding post, yet remains a contender

 

RACE 6

3-Unforgetable – Here’s a lightly-raced 4YO with potential & on the road back @ The Meadows, ships into the Team Harmon Stable & draws inside a soft division

 

2-Alvisi Hanover – This 4YO has some upside, regaining his form on the comeback trail, fresh off a solid third & lands another inside post

 

7-Majestic Sunset –Took a mark of 1:54.1 here in 2018, rallied to hit the ticket two starts back, ran into a raging U Need Stones last out, needs some speed to shoot at

 

RACE 7

6-Forevernalways – Was nosed out with an ideal trip on 11-15, draws a bit better here as a fresh claim by Andrew Harris & that may be the key

 

1-Walks of Life – Runner up in four of his last five to the streaking Preppy Art, stands out with his tactical speed from the rail & long overdue

 

4-Big CC’s Rock – Beat these with a game grind back on 10-19, first over chasing favorite Preppy Art last week, gets away from that rival & draws inside again

 

RACE 8

7-Max Volo – Sports a 1:53.3 mark here this season, makes his second start off a sick scratch & third try after a long layoff, adds Gingras & may ready to fire his best

 

1-Kabu – Took a few starts to acclimate & scored a mild upset with a late lunge, rewarded with the rail & strong in the win column

 

4-Blue And Bold – 3YO has bounced back from some recent breaking issues with two inspiring efforts for trainer Andrew Harris, expect him to be forwardly placed back on the mile track

 

RACE 9

8-Gloria Pierre – Note the sizzling 1:51.1 mark @ Pocono back on 10-29, tough draw after a needed start here, gets some class relief + Gingras + debuts for a new barn

 

4-Sew Psyched – 8YO mare arrives on a form spree @ Plainridge, just two for 34 this season, yet draws inside with a chance to assert herself

 

6-Future Delight – Hasn’t been effective from outside posts in both starts here, was holding her own against higher-priced claimers @ The Meadows & retains Dexter Dunn

 

RACE 10

1-Dali Delight – $72,000 winner this season ships transitions from Yonkers, gets class & post relief, picks up Gingras & faces a highly beatable field

 

2-Glamorgal – 6YO capping a long, productive campaign, steady mare likes to take control, strong number in the win column & inside draw for big time trip potential 

 

9-Summer Rock – Gave Hunter Oakes his first Big M win on 11-8, will need some pace to fire at & trip luck to overcome a tough draw
