4-My Delight – Qualified well against a quality foe in Schnitzldosomethin, then twice overmatched in N/W 6, tighter now & draws inside to assert himself


3-Century Churchill – Just one for 16 this season, yet makes his third start off a sick scratch, plus gets class & post relief in a real mixed bag opener


7-Shattered Glass – Grinded gamely for the place spot against a revved up invader Pauly Wally last week, tougher class & post test here, but this 4YO is razor sharp right now



3-Western Joe – Joe is finally back, multiple Preferred class winner here last season took a mark of 1:47.3 & beat HOY Mcwicked in the Sam McKee Memorial, Joe may be ready for this, but faces several serious opponents


6-Soho Wallstreet A – Fresh off another win albeit a deadheat @ Pocono, pace compromised in the Golden Receiver two starts back, loves this track & has a big chance to take charge


4-Nocturnal Bluechip – Hard to believe such a consistent gelding is 0 for 11 this season after an 11 for 32 campaign in 2018, speedy, versatile, stalking type looms large



1-Perseverant – Only one for 14 in 2019, slow starts off wicked opening quarters have hurt him in his last two, draws the rail again to revert back to his familiar speed


4-Every Way Out – 2016 NJSS champion conjured up some of that back class & took advantage of a softer spot going wire-to-wire from post eight, builds on that in a similar spot


2-John Dally – Parlayed a narrow loss @ Monticello with a game grind & narrow loss to Every Way Out last week, remains a fresh threat & can grip it n rip it with an improved post



5-Twin B Speedo – Has now had three starts since the recent sick scratch to acclimate, simply faces easier competition in this match up, expect a better start from a better post


6-First Class Horse – Arrives fresh off a solid second against similar @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, stalking type may appreciate the transition to the mile track & hasn’t got much to beat


7-Joe Joe Joe – Beaten favorite squandered a perfect second over trip, yet gets away from the streaking Another Daily Copy, owns a wicked late kick & just needs the right set up



2-Smileandsaycheese – Beat N/W $12,500 back on March 30, takes a huge tumble down the class ladder, draws inside & thrives down the long stretch here, big standout


1-It’s Just Too Much – Added Lasix & got parked @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, had missed 18 days prior to that start, returns to the Big M at the bottom condition & with rail control


5-Stakeout – By sheer process of elimination he gets a tepid call to complete the trifecta, marginal recent form @ Harrah Philadelphia, lands in a pick up the pieces scenario



3-Barimah A – Flashed a sharp :26.3 to hit the board from post eight chasing big favorite Mcthriller, now gets further class & post relief on the verge


8-JK Wildfire – Forced wide & made a threatening late move into a :54.4 back half last week, tougher post off the nice acclimating mile, but has something positive to build on


5-Meetyouatmidnight – 0 for 15 this season & just three for 41 in 2018, had his requisite acclimating tour of the oval last week, now drops as part of a camera-shy bunch



4-Rancousy – Classy 8YO dropping some positive hints on the comeback trail on smaller tracks with some tough trips sprinkled in, draws well to stalk n pop a highly vulnerable field


3-Rather Swell – Winner in a nifty 1:50 here this season, runner up to the raging Another Daily Copy two starts back, draws better on quite a stretch of strong closing efforts, 


8-Daylight Rush – Runner up to Rather Swell in that 1:50 sizzler back on May 3, solid runner up @ Pocono last week, will need some things to go his way with a challenging draw back here



2-Albergo Hanover – Effortlessly came right back to repeat in style from post eight last week for the red-hot Team Bongiorno, now moves inside to go four-for-four this season


3-On Duty – Came up just half a length shy of heavily favored Thinkbig Dreambig with a great drive by Vinnie Ginsburg last week, 1:49.2 winner on May 11 draws inside again on the rise


10-Heyden Hanover – Major stakes player at two & three has come roaring back four-for-four @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, his latest a new mark of 1:49.3, may have to blast off from post ten



6-Billy Badger N – Steps up another notch after simply being too far back, pacing a :53.4 back half last week, NZ import with bigger things ahead for a solid percentage barn


1-Alotbettor N – Beat this kind with a perfect trip back on April 27, left in the wake of raging stablemate None Bettor A last week, back inside to stalk the speed for Team Bongiorno


9-Mcthriller – Outside again fresh off the mile of life, a brush n crush in 1:49.4 last week, just missed with a blast off from post nine before that, versatile gelding can handle the class hike



8-Sports Legend – Tougher draw after two excellent acclimating miles for Team Bongiorno, his latest a game grind & placing behind wrapped up stablemate Albergo Hanover, dangerous with some trip luck


6-Dealt A Winner – Classy millionaire has taken a few starts to hit high gear, flaunted speed & bowed to the streaking None Bettor A last week, drops further & long overdue


1-Anthem N – Steady stalking NZ bred no worse than second in seven of nine starts @ Yonkers, matches up well classwise & looks to make a smooth mile track transition from the rail



1-Griffon Hanover – 1:50.1 winner here this season has been struggling @ Yonkers, some outside posts there haven’t helped, class & post relief puts him back in play here


5-Larry Karr – Larry flashed a hint of return to form with that :26.3 to hit the board two starts back, this is a much easier spot for him to exploit for Team Burke 


9-Backstreet Lawyer – Drops back down to the level of that upset & :26.2 rally for a new mark of 1:50.2 on May 4, yet will need some luck dealing with post nine



7-Cabo Real – 9YO just one for his 30 & winless this season @ Freehold, however he was flying from an impossible spot to just miss in his Big M debut last week


2-Spear Point – One for 18 this season, but has been sharp with Eric Abbatiello in the bike, fresh off a narrow loss with pace at both ends in a superb acclimating mile last week


3-Big Rocky – Ships south from Mohawk into the capable hands of Danielle Dailey, hasn’t raced in a few weeks, 4YO with some upside draws well to surprise in this soft match up



8-Ohio Larry – Was on the verge & capitalized with a well-rated wire-to-wire from the same post eight last week, hard to go against his strong repeat chances in this really soft finale


6-Daylyn Horizon – Rallied to beat the $7,500 claimers back on April 26, slow start last week, bit too much speed before that, will need some sort of mayhem to shoot at


5-Atomic Rei – Forced wide from a tough spot & flattened out chasing Ohio Larry last week, one for 18 this season & needs a quicker start to make a bigger dent here
