4-Marquis Volo – Rebounded off a miscue @ Saratoga with a pretty solid third from post eight in a beneficial Big M debut & now draws better with some back class


1-My Boy Christian – Hammered down to 5-2 favorite, brushed to the top & came up just a length shy into wicked headwinds last Friday, rewarded with the rail for Team Bongiorno


2-Knightofvictory – Bounced back with a flat mile on the fringe again, post improves, retains Dexter Dunn, just one for his last 33, but fourth start on the comeback trail & his barn is on fire



3-Staycation Hanover – Somebeachsomewhere first foal out of 2015 Shady Daisy winner Stacia Hanover, her latest qualifier stands out with a :25.3, back half in :54.4, draws inside for Pelling


2-Always B First – Always B Miki first foal out of an unraced daughter of Somebeachsomewhere, strong third just behind Staycation Hanover in her qualifier & draws inside for a high percentage barn 


4-Stephanie Deo – Note the lone win in just two starts, an impressive 1:52.3 with a :25.4 from post ten here last June, finished well in both qualifiers & has lot of upside



5-Force N Fury – Hit the board in two of his last three, both times chasing standouts The Candyman Can & Tuxedo Bay, well-bred 4YO lands in a prime spot to exploit his form


3-Griffon Hanover – Had the table set to rally off a sharp :54.3 half & lacked enough late pop last week, gets another serious shot at the bottom level from inside post & reunited with Gingras


4-Justin Credible – Just one for his last 36, caught out of range from post nine last week, needed to re-acclimate, 1:52.1 winner @ Big M in 2020 draws better & owns a big kick



1-Really Fast – Pricey $700,000 yearling second foal out of $600,000 winner Stubborn Belle, the first was 1:52.4 performer Ms Savannah Belle, added trotting hobbles for his latest eye-catching qualifier & lands the rail for Team Takter 


4-Torn To Pieces AS – 3YO put forth a more than adequate effort in a much-needed debut, draws well for the follow up for a potent trotting barn & retains The Bionic Man


3-She Must Be Magic – Daughter of the late Kadabra draws inside again off a much-improved second last time, 0 for 28, but a prime opportunist in line to trip out



4-Cashncam – Added Lasix & just missed with strong pace at both ends last week, has ramped it up & looms large from post four again & might be on the verge


6-Rockinwiththebest – 0 for ten this season, but consistently did well in the GSY Series recently, post nine has proven costly, draws a bit better in a field that is a combined three for 68 in 2021


3-May I Cruise West – One for his last 42 & winless this season, steady check earner in the GSY Series draws inside again with a chance to trip out for another slice of the pie



7-Pantheon Hanover – Flashed some strong late pace to hit the board in a solid Big M debut, tougher post, yet retains Tetrick for his fourth start since a sick scratch


1-Ocean Colony – The Ocean finally ended a long drought in wire-to-wire fashion from post seven before a sick scratch, moves inside after missing a couple of weeks


8-Sugartown – Was pace but not trip compromised & just missed as the heavy favorite in the GSY Final, moves outside, but remains sharp since the claim



1-Slick Artist A – Flashed some sneaky late pace from post nine in a much-needed comeback here, now hits rock bottom & retains Dexter Dunn


3-Kaitlyn N – I have no idea why she was in the Blue Chip Series @ Yonkers & three weeks in a row, proven winner here gets a massive class drop & inside draw 


7-Rapunzel Blue Chip – 0 for her last 12, but was much-improved runner up in her second start off the bench, draws another demanding post, but has faced better



7-Master Conrad – Did a great job to reel in a runaway leader & drew off into those wicked winds last week, huge improvement for a barn that can do no wrong


1-Motor City Marco – Tripped out to an easy drop n pop win off the sick scratch & claim & lands the rail for a Bionic Man repeat in a field that is a combined five for 86 in 2021


4-Bettor Notbitter A – Forced three wide to avoid a breaker & hit the board again last week, draws well to continue his positive trend



1-INXS – Took a mark of 1:53.1 here last season, solid winner two starts back @ Saratoga, continues to ramp up on the comeback trail & lands the rail in a field begging to be beaten


4-Charlie Ona Harley – 6YO tripped out & came away with a new lifetime mark despite broken equipment last week & draws inside again on a nice form spree


3-Omaha Omaha – Still can’t fathom how he scored the upset fresh off the bench with trotting hopples added, gets another shot at this level off a decent follow up from post nine



8-Northern Rock – Brushed n crushed them from post seven last Saturday, off a career best of 1:52.4 & now fresh off another claim by Besim The Dream


1-Final Justice – Somehow was able to rebound with a solid second to Northern Rock @ 47-1 last week, draws inside that rival once again, but is two for his last 43


2-Rollin In New York – 0 for 12 this season & two for his last 28, but third in his last two with increased vigor & draws inside again with Dexter Dunn



7-S McKee – Put together a pretty solid back half of :56.3 to hit the board last week, that was into those strong stretch headwinds, draws a tougher post, yet this could be a ideal spot to end a long drought 


8-Mighty American N – 0 for his last 20, was a much better second last out, moves outside off a sick scratch, but we’re scrambling for something positive in this match up


3-Grandpa Don – Grandpa was pace compromised & still managed to rally for third last week, fresh claim draws inside a field that is a combined one for 59 in 2021



6-Whole Lotta Lou – Wow, that was some rally to score with a career best 1:52.1 in a sparkling 3YO debut & now stands out for a barn that is hitting on all cylinders


2-Itzalldowntoluck N – That was an outstanding US debut in a sizzling 1:51.2 from post seven for this NZ bred, then was severely overmatched, back to N/W 2 with an inside draw


4-Rockin Rocko – 1:51.2 performer here in 2020 was freshened & qualified with plenty of vigor, draws well to take charge for a barn off to a great start this season



2-I Am The Cowboy – Vincent Stallworth claimed this 10YO who was bothered by a breaker on the far turn last week, a solid second before that & rates contender status


3-Rockin Rambaran – 11YO was a beaten favorite & distant third last week, just missed against these three starts back & now draws inside again off another claim


5-Nobles Finesse – Hard to figure how he rallied for that huge upset two starts back, tried speed & faded into those wicked winds last week, chance to stalk from a midpack start
