RACE 1

9-Da Magician – Recent Mark Silva purchase ships a long way east fresh off a wire-to-wire lifetime best 1:51.2 @ Fraser Downs, piled up 14 wins last year, worth a long look despite post nine

 

10-Just N Berlander – Has spent a couple of months on the shelf after an injury scratch, won the qualifier here with a nice late move, 1:52.2 winner here in late June may have too far to come

 

4-Settlemoir – Lots of back class on view, makes the switch from Yonkers on short rest, has a chance to spark something in a softer match up from an inside post

 

RACE 2

1-Bungalow Bill N – Beaten favorite on the engine in his last two before a sick scratch, now gets a significant driver change to Gingras + the rail

 

6-Mister Accumulator – Just one for 22 this season, but in a mostly Freehold stock match up this gelding seems to be gathering some momentum since the sick scratch

 

2-Ohio Larry – 1:53 winner here this season has won two of his last three @ Freehold & draws inside fresh off a crushing score

 

RACE 3

1-All It Takes – 1:50.1 winner here back in early May, makes a key third start off the bench for the potent Cullipher Connection & lands the rail in a softer match up

 

6-Smileandsaycheese – Took his mark of 1:51 here year, has hinted of a turnaround in his last two & may have found a prime spot

 

9-Steve Said – Lowered his mark to 1:51 back in the Spring when he won three of four here, gets a barn change to Andrew Harris, strong in the win column, threat despite post nine

 

RACE 4

7-One Tough Nut – Deservedly draws the strongest attention for winning two of his last three @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, expect another aggressive effort here holding that form

 

1-Somethinginthewind – Just one for 24 in a comeback season, has cranked it up in last two, including a second to One Tough Nut & draws inside that rival here

 

3-Ideal Son – Only three for his last 41, 1:51.4 winner here this season fresh from a four-month layoff draws well & picks up Gingras

 

RACE 5

4-Luck N Roll K – Finally snapped a long season skid by equaling his lifetime mark @ Rosecroft, 1:52.4 winner here last year lands in an easier spot + adds Tetrick

 

1-Final Justice – Overcame a slow start from post eight & rallied for second down the short stretch @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, drops out of claimers & draws better here

 

2-Thespywholovedme – Rallied for a huge upset @ Harrah’s Philadelphia in late August, freshened & qualified with some late zip & draws inside with The Buckeye

 

RACE 6

6-Rebel Rouser – Half of his ten wins this season have come @ The Big M, lowered his mark to 1:50.2 two starts back @ Pocono & can rebound off a rare miscue for a high percentage barn

 

9-Americanprimetime – Open class winner @ Tioga ships in fresh off his tenth win of the season, has the class & speed to overcome the outside draw

 

3-Aflame Hanover – Messenger elimination winner with a mark of 1:49.1 in PASS, high quality 3YO draws inside to stalk this evenly matched group of older foes

 

RACE 7

4-Stormont Czar A – In full regroup mode in his last two @ Pocono, makes that key third start off the bench in an easier class from an inside post for Team Harmon

 

7-Barimah A – Had post eight in three of his last five, recent form clearly indicates a tail off trend, but this is enough of a class drop for this classic horse-for-the-course

 

6-Rockathon – Has been facing much tougher @ Yonkers recently, perked up in his latest effort in the slop & eligible to surprise this mixed bag

 

RACE 8

6-Geez Joe – Ships in with a sparkling new mark of 1:47.4 @ Hoosier Park two starts back, no chance chasing Mcwicked in the Allerage Farms, fresh threat with only seven starts this year

 

8-Western Joe – 2018 Sam McKee Memorial winner returns on a form spree @ Pocono, tripped out to nailed Dealt A Winner in 1:48.2 two starts back & this Joe loves The Big M

 

7-Dealt A Winner – Ultra classy track record holder & millionaire arrives on a roll for Mark Silva, bounced back from a nose loss to Western Joe with a 1:49.2 blowout @ Pocono

 

RACE 9

3-Electric Western – Failed to get involved while pace compromised in his last two @ Yonkers, gets some class relief, draws well in a wide open field & gets another new driver in Gingras

 

5-Nascar Seelster – Just two for 29 this year, yet has ramped up form in his last three on smaller tracks, fresh from a narrow loss @ Yonkers, should appreciate the longer stretch on an oval he’s familiar with

 

2-Heavenly Sound – Only one for 24 this season, but like the way this 4YO is going with back-to-back thirds @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, has a chance to keep it going from post two

 

RACE 10

6-Franco Totem N – Fresh off an inspiring strong finish in his US debut @ Harrah’s Philadelphia for Nifty Norman, has major upside & much longer stretch to his liking here

 

5-Constntlysidewys A – Primo horse-for-the-course & beaten favorite in his last two sliding down the class ladder, launched a premature :27.3 third quarter @ Pocono

 

3-Awesomeness – Steady gelding with some back class ships back from Pocono in solid form & well spotted with an inside draw

 

RACE 11

6-Respect Our Flag – 1:49.2 winner here while winning two divisions of the Wiggle It Jiggleit Series back in April, improved in his last three elsewhere for potent Team Bongiorno

 

7-Caviart Rockland – 1:50.3 winner here this season added Lasix recently & finished a decent fourth in a Bluegrass division, tougher post back here, but his barn is on fire

 

8-Better Than Some – Arrives sporting sharp form @ Yonkers & fresh off a pair of narrow losses there flaunting versatility, may surprise this group despite post eight

 

RACE 12

4-Master Of Puppets – 9YO veteran has been a winner here in the past, some mixed results & tough posts recently, this inside draw sets up a smooth trip in a field ripe for the taking

 

2-Soho Leviathan A – Went all the way as the favorite @ Yonkers on Tuesday, wheels right back on short rest in a lower condition here with an inside post in a prime spot

 

3-Taramakaureactor N – Was going well this Fall @ Tioga Downs before the recent sick scratch, makes his second start since that interruption & draws well for The Mann

 

RACE 13

3-Arrakis – Horse-for-the-course been freshened on the sidelines, qualified okay @ Mohawk, draws inside a blank finale & can add points for any moisture in the track

 

6-Take A Wish – Only one for 21 this season, but got to like the two needed tighteners, the class plunge & took a mark of 1:55.2 here last year

 

1-Revrac Harbour – Tripped out to beat a weak field @ Vernon Downs as the favorite, that’s a bright spot to cling to in this soft match up, plus gets the rail + Gingras here
