4-Cedar Hall Heaven – Already gelded son of Rock N Roll Heaven has done decent work in two Gaitway preps over tracks rated good there & draws well in a wide-open division, dam is a sister to 1:48.4 performer Jerseylicious


5-Rockin The Aces – Flashed a :27.4 to be a solid second in his initial qualifier @ Mohawk, went evenly chasing a 1:53.2 winner here last week, looking for his good bloodlines to surface, 14thfoal out of the dam Mattaroni


6-Sea Isle City – Saw enough willing late pace in both baby races in PA to merit consideration in this toss-up division & draws better than the other Aaron Lambert trainee



4-Youaremycandygirl – Classy 1:48.2 Shady Daisy winner here last season just missed to Caviart Ally with a :25.1 back on May 18, too far out of range in the Roses Are Red, this is a prime spot for her to bear down & apply serious pressure late


2-Caviart Ally – Got some relief away from division standout Shartin N, relished it & simply went down the road to equal her lifetime mark of 1:48.3, figures to control this in career form


1-Apple Bottom jeans – Got off to a fast start so she could follow Caviart Ally all the way for the place spot last week, moves inside off that nice effort fresh off the bench & hasn’t missed the board this season



3-Play Trix On Me – This $4,500 bargain Trixton colt simply cruised in both of his baby races @ PA tracks & draws inside a field ripe for the taking


2-St Martins – Set the pace & just missed in an inspiring baby race here on June 8, debuts almost three weeks later with an inside post for a reputable trotting barn


5-Rooney Blue Chip – Already added trotting hopples on, a solid third from post eight in his first attempt @ Mohawk, then broke, ships south for TheStable.Ca with a chance to surprise



8-Caviart Eva – Showed logical & stark improvement in her second trial here, lands a tougher post, yet Team Johansson has been on a serious roll so far this season


3-Fortune Starlet – Sister to 1:52.2 performer Shoshie Deo went two-for-two @ Vernon Downs, so arrives brimming with confidence from an inside post


6-Common Sense S – First out of her dam was a hard-charging second in her only trial to date, could be a diamond in the rough here for the prolific Team Svanstedt



5-Sheer Muscle – Romped to a new mark of 1:54 in The Stallion Series @ Harrah’s Philadelphia two starts back, then chased Green Manalishi S & company @ Pocono, this lightly-raced Muscle Hill colt is going in the right direction


2-Star Track Hanover –Tripped out to win his Big M debut for Team Burke, then forwardly placed & settled for third in his follow up, now draws inside to step it up a notch or two


1-Flippen Creek – Lightly-raced Hambletonian eligible finished a distant third in his seasonal debut for Team Miller & has a chance to build on that from the rail in a relatively soft N/W 2 



5-American History – Seemed to be cycling forward for Team Alagna & just missed when he catapulted off the torrid clip last week, now the 1:47 performer here last season is reunited with Andrew McCarthy 


6-Jimmy Freight – One of the sport’s newest millionaires ships south fresh off a brush n crush & new mark of 1:48.1 in the Mohawk Gold Cup, this steady stalking type just missed to Done Well in the Confederation Cup Final


3-Backstreet Shadow – We nailed this one to the tune of $13.20 last week, erupted off the dazzling fractions to the fastest mile of the season here so far, an exceptional Graduate division winner @ Tioga before that



6-Dramatra – Won her first baby race with nice late burst, then just missed in her second trial here with a crisp :26.4, looks like Scottie Z has a live one, a sister to 2013 Hambo champ Royalty For Life


8-Spoiled Princess – Give her points for the much improved second baby race here, this Nifty Norman trainee may have a nice future, but the post is tougher tonight, hails from the maternal line of 2009 Oaks champ Broadway Schooner


9-Violet Stride – Left alertly, brushed & cruised in her only baby race here last week for Mark Harder, rates contender status in this division despite the outside draw, dam is a sister to 1:52.1 performer Bill’s Man



7-Reclamation – Lightly-raced mare with upside returns on a six-race winning streak, took a new mark of 1:50 @ Pocono two starts back, showing versatility & speed for Team Burke


10-Catch An Ace – Stormed home in :26.1 to take a new mark of 1:51.2 in her second start off the bench, then just missed from far back, remains a major threat to rally off the expected action


5-You Should Be Here – Sports a 1:51.3 mark @ The Big M this season against N/W $6,000, fresh from a nose loss @ Yonkers, form cycling forward & stalks the speed



1-Super Schissel – Rated #8 on the Road to the Hambletonian Top Ten, rallied from a tough spot to just miss in the Goodtimes Final & takes another step up from the rail


7-Chiplosive – Added George Napolitano, Jr. & went all the way in the mile of his life @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, Trond Smedshammer has a Hambo eligible stepping up at the right time


4-Sister’s Promise – Strong runner up in the NJSS Final with a :26.4, didn’t fire in the qualifier last week, yet draws inside to resume her quest for the Oaks



4-Courtly Choice – The 2018 Pace champ returns & really woke up with some serious fractions & nose loss to The Downtown Bus @ Tioga two starts back, then ran into the streaking None Bettor A @ Pocono last week


1-The Downtown Bus – The Bus is in top form right now, was able to leave hard & trip out to beat Courtly Choice with a new mark of 1:48.2 @ Tioga, then had no chance from post eight @ Yonkers, finally moves inside


7-Shadow Cat – The Cat pounced into some hot fractions & held on gamely for a new mark of 1:48.4 two weeks ago, tries to keep it going in deeper waters for the raging Team Bongiorno



2-On The Ropes – Shook loose too late to just miss again in :27.2, grinded gamely before that, draws inside a camera-shy field to finally kick the door in for Team Svanstedt


6-Zlatan – Has hit the board in both starts since coming back, set a reasonable pace & held third behind On The Ropes two weeks ago & remains a top contender


1-Henderson Seelster – Squandered a perfect two-hole trip when settled for third behind On The Ropes last week, back inside to resume an opportunist role again



8-Soul Strong – Looked like a Hambo player after his NJSS win in 1:53, then broke in the NJSS Final, nice rebound effort with a wide rally & nose loss, rates a long look for Team Svanstedt 


2-The Ice Dutchess – Took a sharp mark of 1:52 in her 3YO debut here, fresh off a blowout in the PA Allstars @ Pocono Downs & Team Johansson are on a roll


4-Sheena’s Boy – Runner up to Greenshoe in a leg of NJSS, huge rebound blowout in the slop @ Pocono last out, draws inside with speed to give Team Svandstedt a strong 1-2 punch



3-Merga Hanover – First out of the 1:50.4 performer Magic Starlight, romped impressively in both Gaitway qualifiers, draws well & could be anything for Team Burke


5-Hen Party – Roll With Joe sister to Metro winner & 1:48.2 performer Stag Party, set a solid pace & just missed in her second Gaitway qualifier, another potential star for Team Burke 


2-Silver Tail – Third foal out of 1:51.3 winning dam, won her second trial with a well-timed late move @ Harrah’s Philadelphia & draws inside here



4-Night Hall – Just missed in the slop two starts back @ Pocono, then ran into a 1:53 winner in PASS, lightly-raced Muscle Hill colt draws well in a camera-shy finale for Team Svanstedt


7-Finally Found Away – Winner in The Stallion Series @ Pocono to open his 3YO campaign, nice rebound & rally for second here last week, trying to keep it going from a tougher post


3-Hatikvah – Switched to Marcus Melander & his latest qualifier indicated some talent & potential, roughed up early from post eight & stopped in the comebacker, has a chance bounce back from a better post
