RACE 1

2-Soho Wallstreet A – Just one for 11 this season, but gradually acclimating, knocking on the door with furious rallies in his last two, grinded gamely into a :53.3 back half last week & lands post two in a tight match up

 

4-Emeritus Maximus – Well-driven by Corey Calahan & barely outsprinted Soho Wallstreet A with a :26.3 last week, draws better in top form for a barn that won two here last Saturday

 

7-Bettor’s Edge – Class of the field took full advantage of an inside draw & gunned down a well-rated Western Joe in :26.2 last week, tough & consistent gelding remains a huge threat

 

RACE 2

5-When I See You N – Croghan NZ import had no chance sitting off a pedestrian pace & was flying late in :26.4 in his US debut, lands in a prime spot to show more & break thru here

 

1-American Vision – Beaten favorite pace compromised & just missed with a hard-charging third in his 3YO debut, back on the pole in another soft N/W of 2

 

4-Sammy’s Lightning – Lightly-raced colt with some upside was no factor in his sophomore debut, but eligible to improve with an inside post, note the solid qualifier chasing Penpal on April 6

 

RACE 3

8-Love Tap Hanover – 1:52 winner here last season flashed some late life in the much-needed comebacker after eight months off, tough post, while making his second start for Brett Pelling

 

9-Northern Virgin – Fresh off a strong third @ Yonkers on Tuesday, a closer banking on the right set up from post nine has a chance to snap his season skid

 

6-Daylyn Horizon – Took a mark of 1:51.2 here last year, his second start on Lasix was a much-improved third, more expected in a wide-open G Notes Dash

 

RACE 4

7-Alotbettor N – Catapulted off the easy win @ Yonkers two starts back by sizzling home in :53.1 last week, peaking perfectly & dips slightly in class for a high percentage barn

 

3-Hug The Wind N – Chased the raging Barimah A in the Whata Baron Series, 1:50.2 performer here earlier this season gets some class relief & draws better for key third start off bench

 

1-First Class Horse – Finished well in both tightening miles with Rob Harmon in the bike, his latest in a :53.2 back half, cranked up for this class drop from the rail

 

RACE 5

3-Air Strike – Managed a couple of checks while overmatched in the much tougher Whata Baron Series, this is a substantial class drop & inside draw puts him in play

 

6-Speed Again – Burke-tuned millionaire sharpening his sword in PA, returns to the mile track in a lite N/W of $5,000 & has a big chance to flaunt his class

 

8-Maajaackobe – Only one for 14 this season, yet was a contender chasing the rejuvenated Quality Bud last week, challenging post, but drops back down a notch

 

RACE 6

4-Griffon Hanover – Was knocking on the door here this Spring at a tougher level, fresh off a narrow loss @ Harrah’s Philadelphia & draws well again, while slipping just under the cap

 

2-Durant – Rose to be competitive in the Preffered ranks this season, looks to be cycling forward off a game speed try from post nine @ Pocono & draws inside an easier class back here

 

3-Santiago Style – Beaten favorite paid the price for inexplicably slow start from the rail & didn’t get the speed target to shoot at last week, back inside to atone at the same reduced level 

 

RACE 7

2-Western Joe – This season’s Preferred class star fresh off a narrow loss last week, finally draws inside & looms as a dominant force in this year’s Graduate Series 

 

1-Highalator – Piled up 11 wins in his sophomore season, ships in on fire going two-for-two on Lasix & fresh off a new mark of 1:49.2 @ Pocono & controls from the pole

 

7-Beyond Delight – Brett Pelling trainee on a form spree, just missed with an aggressive effort, excellent acclimating mile, expect another blast off to stalk the ample speed on view

 

RACE 8

7-Brigadierbronski A – Downunder trainer Tahnee Camilleri almost made it two-for-two with her first pair of entries here, this gelding finished a bang up second in a terrific US debut last week

 

2-Pierce – Gelding regaining form for Nick Surick, fresh off a sharp 1:53.3 win @ Freehold, draws well to tap further & show some back class

 

1-Mister Truth – 0 for 12 in 2018, yet was a bit more competitive from a challenging post last week, drops all the down to the bottom condition & moves inside a camera-shy field

 

RACE 9

6-Odds On Delray – Lightly-raced Tony Alagna-tuned 4YO just missed with a mighty surge in his 2018 debut & logically looms large off that super tightener

 

1-This Is The Plan – Tangled competitively with tops colts like Lost In Time, qualifiers were sharp enough, heads a strong Chris Ryder entry from post two

 

8-Rock On Line – Got shuffled a bit from post eight & motored home in :26.4 to hit the board behind Odds On Delray, posted back-to-back romps from outside posts earlier this season

 

RACE 10

9-Iwillmakeyousaywow – Noted Big M lover for Team Buter has raced better in his last two @ Pocono, tackles an outside assignment, but the class plunge makes him a threat

 

2-Mr Euroman N – 1:50 winner here this season continued to show signs of regaining form with a game grind for third last week, draws inside again for another try at the bottom condition

 

4-The Fire Within – Came through as a the heavy favorite & steamrolled to beat a soft field last week, rewarded with an improved post to keep it going
