6-Shenzi AS – Intriguing filly did some nice work @ Scioto Downs this summer, won a late-closing series final there in 1:55.3, has the talent & potential to overhaul this bunch if she can behave 


2-Panthera AS – Just one for 28 this 2021, comes off a miscue @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, but was competitive against tougher N/W 4 & 3 stock & draws inside a very soft opener 


5-Makers Mass – Hasn’t hit the board in ten starts this season, added trotting hopples & qualified with confidence & has faced tougher recently



6-Industrial Hemp – Shuffled & shook loose with plenty late in an excellent acclimating mile, Team Bongiorno tuned filly owns speed & can tackle her seconditis opponents

6-Mayfield Duke – One for 27 this season, very steady against $7,500 stock, just missed with a sharp :27.3 last Saturday & rates contender status 


3-Takeittotheface – Scored his lone win of the year in rousing fashion three starts back, makes his second start off the recent claim from an improved post



3-Brickhouse Babe – More than lived up to the hype with a sterling rally & new mark of 1:54.1 last week, Ray Schinttker standout rewarded with a better post


1-I’ll Have A Lindy – Prolific in the TSS & notched her fifth win in that final, got going too late chasing big favorite Misswalner Fashion, back inside off that acclimating mile


5-Lookin Chic – Walner filly definitely going in the right direction, runner up to standout Misswalner Fashion last week & draws a bit better for the red-hot Nifty Norman



4-Watchmeneighneigh – Paid off with an aggressive effort as the favorite two starts back, then paid the price for a slow start from post ten & now moves inside


3-Petal To The Metal – Rallied second by a neck to Watchmeneighneigh three starts back, has a chance to turn the tables with a stalking trip for Team Chiodo


5-Cashncam – Note the big wide move to grab second two starts back, draws a tougher post, but a prime opportunist with the right pace set up



4-Treacherous Dragon – Two wins & two seconds in just four starts, runner up to NYSS champ Gotthegreenlight last week, has pedigree & potential for Pelling


6-Captiva – Captaintreacherous filly for Team Alagna on the board in five of six, shuffled second to revved up Hood Party last week in an ideal acclimating mile


8-Flip The Script – On the ticket in six of seven, a solid third behind Captiva in :26.4 last week, post eight again, but capable of speed
