3-Call For Justice – Burke trainee went all the way in a well-controlled effort from post 8 two starts back, used hard from post nine last out, 1:52.4 winner here moves inside fresh on the comeback trail


4-Lucky Sheila – Sat a two-hole behind the 3-5 favorite Kadabra Queen & lacked the knockout punch last week, drops back down, but 11 seconds this season tells her story


6-Kadabra Queen – Twice beaten favorite since that 1:54.2 blowout first time Lasix, gets some needed class relief + retains Dexter Dunn in a very intriguing opener



1-Midnight Romance – Potential star by Captaintreacherous, Brittany Farms second foal out of millionaire NYSS champion Romantic Moment, late-blooming 3YO really shined in her second qualifier & kicks off a potent Alagna Armada 1-2 punch


2-Watchful Eye – 2YO from the first crop of 2014 pace record setter He’s Watching finished a solid third in a useful comebacker on Lasix & draws inside for Team Alagna


8-Anurka – Sister to 1:50.2 performer Ella Christina took a few starts to break through with a nice rally @ Harrah’s Philadelphia as the heavy favorite, tough draw, but potential Pelling power



1-Credit Fraud – Owns a 1:54.4 mark here in 2019, goes third time Lasix, finally moves inside & substantial class relief & better start might be the keys to an overdue win


5-Chief Justice – Took a 1:54.2 mark@ The Big M this season, makes his third start off the bench & drops into a real soft spot & draws an ideal stalking post for a productive Team Fusco


7-Cyclone Maximus – Paid the price for a slow start last week, drop back down to a more competitive bottom condition & looks for a speed target from a challenge post



3-Dancin Doug – Fresh face for Breeders Crown winning trainer Tahnee Camilleri twice qualified solidly for Gingras & draws well in a suspect field


5-Mrs Browns Boy – Maritimes bred 3YO took a mark of 1:53.1 in his big M debut, now has two tighteners here & tackles a lackluster group of mostly older foes


6-Albert A’ Scootin – Just two for 37 this season, yet has been consistently on the ticket @ Freehold, transitions into a soft match up for his mile track stretch out



7-Steve Said – Owns a 1:51 mark here this season, racing well against $12,500 claimers @ Yonkers, gets Andrew McCarthy & his gate speed puts him in play


1-T’s Electric – Productive Pocono invader & recent winner banked over $70,000 this season, hasn’t raced in a month off a sick scratch, but changes barns & lands the rail


8-American Music – Hammered down to 8-5 favorite & showed sudden speed to trip out for The Buckeye last week, a major threat to repeat with a similar effort

1-Victoryisalluneeed – 3YO filly has won 10 for 21 this season & arrives off a pair of air out missions @ Yonkers & she’ll get to ease off the rail & tap her potential here



2-Melady’s Monet – Beaten favorite when pace compromised two starts back, then stormed home to just miss from a tough spot two weeks ago, finally moves inside, which may spell the difference


4-Sutton – Third by a neck in 2016 Hambo, only 14 starts the past two seasons, back from eight months off, qualified with plenty, looks ready for a serious test


7-Southwind Chrome – Rebounded off another miscue, fought off pressure & held on in a sharp 1:51.4 last week, tougher post for the bump back up into the Preferred, but sports a strong number in the win column



5-Make It Big – Only two for 32 in 2019, but has come around in sharp fashion for trainer Juan Cano, simply blew them away in authoritative style from post ten last week 


1-Duckies Dynasty – 1:51.2 performer here this season was absolutely crushed down to 2-5 & suddenly came to life for Dexter Dunn, rewarded with the rail off that big wake up mile


7-Mach Up A – Left alertly, sat a two-hole behind Make It Big & finished a solid second in a nice comeback off consecutive sick scratches, look for a similar strategy & possibly a better result



5-Majorette Angie – Has been trying to fire her best shot from out of striking range @ long odds, should be fully acclimated & now gets some class relief, possible price play

8-Undefiable – New barn & venue, hasn’t raced in a month, first win of the season came two starts back @ Mohawk, tough post, but gets Dexter Dunn & could surprise



2-Presidente Zette – Credit Corey Callahan with carving out a perfect second over trip tracking live cover from post ten, 1:53.4 performer here this season moves inside & remains @ this reduced level


5-Piercewave Hanover – Fired out for an early lead, was blocked briefly in the stretch & advanced into second behind Presidente Zette, guns for another stalking trip from the same midpack post 


7-Inukchuk Chuck – Grinded gamely & held third after he transitioned from the Billings Series else where, 10-time winner this season has been sharpening his sword



5-Skyway Kon Man – Rallied to be a solid second to next out winner HL Revadon two starts back, then broke as the heavy favorite last week, lands the same post for the bounce back effort with new pilot Dexter Dunn


6-Warrior One – 3YO gelding showed huge improvement when he finished a closed second to repeater HL Revadon last week, has a big chance to build on that stark turnaround


2-Galixton – Sports a 1:54.2 mark here this season, been on the fringes chasing the red-hot HL Revadon, now draws inside to stalk n pop for The Buckeye

6-MS Mac N Cheese – Came to life when she debuted here with aggressively handling & solid second in her fourth start on the comeback trail, might be on the verge


5-Believe In Me – Dropped n popped with a decisive blowout score two starts back, then just missed when heavily favored @ Harrah’s Philadelphia with pace @ both ends



6-Illinimight – That was a very solid second to a standout winner two starts back, set the pace from post 8 & gave way last week, has a chance to steal this wide open finale
