Race 1: 2- Julmyra: Coming off a career best victory, inside her major dangers tonight; 7- Lady Tini: Had late trot when second in her third lifetime start, the post really hurts; 3- Musical Milestones: Usually gets a piece without winning one; 1- So Serious

Race 2: 3- Driving Me Lindy: Has been facing and beating better, best bet here; 5- Blue Skies Craze: Has had breaking trouble in the Excelsior races, shown promise otherwise; 1- After Randi: The clear favorite in exactas behind the top one; 2- Katniss O’kelly

Race 3: 3- Slice Slice Baby: Comes to town off her career best start at Yonkers, driver is a question; 2- How Bout Cash: On the board in seven straight but with only one win, clear danger; 1- Curly Q T: Rail off a better fourth; 5- Caroline Street

Race 4: 2- Subliminal Hanover: Set a lifetime mark in his first try in this class last week, call to repeat for Dobson; 1- Ideal Gift: First or second in three straight, that streak should continue from the rail; 7- Smellthecolornine: On the board in five in a row at this level; 4- Grand Revelation

Race 7: 7- Market Rally: The three year old to beat drew poorly but it shouldn’t matter; 2- Glowngold: Runner up to the top one last week, appears clearly next best; 1- Flyhawk Falina: Rail should yield minor spoils; 5- L Dees Scripture

Race 8: 1- Mr Rockford: Threw a major clunker at even money off the double drop, is questionable but his B game should beat these; 6- Sahara Hall: Early speed should return and likely at a price; 2- Lee Ave: Third despite a break in his local debut; 9- Risk Factor

Race 9: 7- Avalicious: The only question is if she trots, clearly faster than these; 2- Driving Miss Crazy: Strong second while on the front end from post eight, moves in; 1- Beauty Of Gray: Rail for a piece; 5- Do You Believe

Race 10: 4- S F Ciro: His A game beats these but is coming off a three week layoff following some issues, a gamble; 3- One True Friend: Consistent closer, threat if flat; 1- Winds Of Victory: Speed and the rail; 5- Alpine Dauntless

Race 11: 2- Keep On Flyin: Moves in off a hard charging third, call in the finale; 3- Dingle Bay: Tough trip from the rail at even money, gets a better trip for sure; 1- Cheyenne Oxe: Moves to the rail off a dull try on the lead and a claim; 4- Allamerican Fargo
