RACE 1

4-Sams A Champ A – Parked in his comebacker, paced a strong back half to hit the board again last week, 1:50 winner here last season draws better to show his class

 

2-America’s Fleet – Team Burke often sends them ready & in this case the qualifier was solid, just three for 45 last year is a major knock, but draws inside as a major contender

 

7-Uncle Reimus – Chased a couple of sharp ones with an ideal trip last week, draws a tougher post, but remains at a competitive level

 

RACE 2

6-Rouser Hanover – Third foal out of the millionaire Romantic Moment romped despite broken equipment in his debut @ Pocono, Alagna trainee finished well in both qualifiers here

 

1-Devil Or Angel – Beaten heavy favorite in all three starts, flashed sharp speed & faded to fourth @ Pocono, talented 3YO back on the rail @ The Big M 

 

2-Callingallbeaches – First foal out of the half million winner Major Look qualified evenly for Team Burke, draws well to make an immediate impression

 

RACE 3

8-The Big Muscle – Drops back down to the level of his gallant nose loss from post eight two starts back, a hotter pace target would help his cause

 

3-Starlight AS – Flashed some late trot two starts back, acclimated now, gets further class relief & draws inside a wide open match up

 

4-Theraputic – Pace compromised & forced wide from a tough spot in the slop last week, his effort before that was encouraging, draws better to be more aggressive

 

RACE 4

3-Rockin Ron – After two even starts this season it’s time for the real Rockin Ron to stand up, can erase a disappointing 2019 season by sparking something here from another inside post

 

1-Bell I No – Bumped into the impressive Covered Bridge in his last two, 8YO lowered his mark to 1:48.4 under ideal conditions on Feb. 22, a smooth trip from the rail is imminent

 

6-Harambe Deo – Caught in never-never land after an unusually slow start @ Dover Downs, was knocking on the door here with wicked finishes before that

 

RACE 5

3-Odds On Columbus – Flashed some crisp final quarters in his last two here & just missed on Feb. 8, draws well for his return to the mile track with the Blueberry Bomber

 

2-Da Magician – Jammed in a severe shuffle with no chance last week, a solid second from post eight before that, still gathering steam in the comeback trail & draws inside

 

1-Mr D’s Dragon – Qualified well enough to rate highly in this wide-open field for Team Burke, lands the rail at a reduced level & owns some back class

 

RACE 6

3-Kenziesky Hanover – Had just about everything go his way & couldn’t quite get to a classy Very Very Fast last week, drops another notch & draws inside again

 

1-Henderson Seelster – Regrouped nicely & basically duplicated the winning effort in his qualifier with a handy comebacker, rewarded with the rail with more in the tank

 

2-Carrick – Team Burke trainee followed an easy win & close second with a parked out trip last week, tighter & acclimated now & draws another inside post in top form

 

RACE 7

3-Jet Airway – Grinded gamely to beat this kind two starts back as the favorite, then got roughed up first over, drops back down & lands post three again

 

5-Western Redhot – Forced into a first over attack in his last three resulting in a win & narrow loss to the heavy favorite Rough Odds last week, sharp item on a form spree

 

4-Tymal Peacemaker – Offered some late pace from nowhere in his 2020 debut, $117,000 winner last season draws better for his second start off the bench

 

RACE 8

4-Dealer’s Table – Unleashed a premature rally to a late lead & just missed as the even money favorite last week, gets another big chance from an inside post at this reduced level

 

3-Major Pocket A – Shot home to just miss in his Big M debut, draws well again to build on that effort in only his third start in the US & might be on the verge

 

2-Statement Made A – Flashed some late life from an impossible spot last week, finally draws an inside post & capable of being more aggressive

 

RACE 9

1-Another Daily Copy – 1:49.2 winner three starts back rated, then tried to give them the slip & got nosed out last week, major danger from the rail

 

5-Mindtrip – Beaten favorite stung to a :54.3 half, solid second to Bell I No before that, 12-time winner in 2019 has the class to rebound

 

6-Jack’s Shadow N – Every other type faltered as the favorite after missing three weeks, cruised to a new mark of 1:50.1 before that, so who shows up tonight?

 

RACE 10

2-Hayden Hanover – 1:47.3 performer here persistently knocking on the door since coming back this season & moves inside off a close second from post ten

 

4-Eddard Hanover – Took advantage of a smooth trip to hit the board with an improved effort last week, gets further class & post relief to make him a major contender

 

1-The First Step – Brushed sharply & stopped last week after blasting to a new mark of 1:50 for Team Burke, 4YO with potential moves inside with a chance to rebound

 

RACE 11

4-A Major Omen – Tripped out to beat these after a quick start from post seven two starts back, missed three weeks prior to his dull sixth last week, lands in a prime spot to rebound

 

1-Caviart Rockland – Lands the rail off two solid qualifiers, the latest chasing Caviart Ally, 1:50.3 winner @ The Big M last season has major upside

 

10-Good Rockin – Chased the standout Hurrikane Emperor last week, has the gate speed to establish position & sharp form to overcome post ten

 

RACE 12

7-Duckies Dynasty – Nosed out as the beaten favorite when he gave it a gallant try rating the pace last week, took a 1:51.1 mark here this season

 

3-All It Takes – Gathering momentum in his last few, just missed from post seven with pace @ both ends last week & draws better

 

4-Thunder Dome – A close second with a perfect trip two starts back, early speed & faded last out, moves inside to work out his preferred stalking trip

 

RACE 13

3-General Joy A – Rated nicely & just missed in a sparkling US debut here on Lasix, draws inside with a big chance to build on a much needed start

 

1-Our Positano N – Got underway late in his Big m debut last week, now drops to the bottom rung & draws inside a wide-open finale 

 

4-Daamericansky – Added Lasix, set a rated pace & gave way last week, gets further class  post relief with sub 1:50 marks on view
