Race 2: 5- Dead Wrong: Back to the connections who she thrived with; 1- Need Help Here: A fast and game second last week, pole control to be the major danger; 2- Scottish Blue: Beaten favorite when a solid runner up in this class earlier in the week; 3- Hello I’m Johnny

Race 3: 5- Camdee: Comes off by far her best start of the year, call for Bouchard; 6- Whimsies: Has been much better off the pace lately, closes for a good piece; 7- Fire N Diamonds: Has battled better all year long, chance with a trip; 1- Dandy Do Right

Race 6: 5- West Liberty: Comes to town off a lifetime best performance, chance at a big price; 6- Stage It Right: Fast second from the pole against cheaper last week, can thrive with a cover trip; 3- Iced Out: She’s always a factor but has lacked winning pop; 2- Auf Wiedersehen

Race 7: 6- Carolsideal: Never got involved from post eight in her local debut, she’ll be aggressive tonight; 2- So Nice: On the board in six in a row without a win, she’s been flirting with a win in this Open; 5- Her Own Land: Another who is often close but has yet to be a winning presence in the local feature; 1- Mcever

Race 8: 1- Broadway Gabber: Has had excuses of late, tries to wire this group from the rail; 3- Silent Pine: Has been dealing with miserable posts, charges hard late; 2- Pistols Aspiration: Thirds in two straight against similar, moves in; 6- Bad Cantab

Race 9: 7- My Spring Fling: She’s been a tick faster than her rivals since she came to town, blasts out early to overcome the post; 6- Campanile: Starting to look like her old self again; 1- Shortest Distance: Solid third last week, moves all the way in; 2- Goddess’s Rosa

Race 10: 1- Southwind Vixen: Drops into claimers for the first time, Bouchard steps up from the rail in a wide open finale; 2- Goin Shoppin: She’s the logical choice here; 4- Notorius Terror: Comes to town off a tiring effort, a scratch and a month off, beware; 6- Gale Storm

Race 2: 4- Bondy N: Gets another shot on the engine and won’t be denied here; 3- Joltin Colt: Got parked  following a fast second in his previous try; 1- East Meadow: Not his best of late but draws the rail in a spot to get a pocket ride; 2- Major Moves

Race 5: 6- Insane In Spain: He’s a tick faster than these but needs a second over trip; 2- RD Donethat: Has lacked winning pop but has been second nine times this year; 5- Putnams Attack: Usually ends up third or fourth; 1- Hemingway

Race 6: 5- RU Ready To Rock: No factor from eight holes in two straight, closes in 27 every week and that gives him the edge here; 1- Legacy N Diamonds: Pole control for the first time since dropping to this class; 2- Village Jackson: Inside trip for a piece; 3- Kelly’s Noah

Race 7: 8- JK Panache: Has won so impressively in his local starts that I don’t think the eight hole will matter; 1- Spinarama: Can compete in the Open from the inside; 2- Martial Bliss: Final quarters have been sensational of late, on the board in six straight; 4- Burkentine Hanover

Race 8: 1- Coach Cal: Distant second while running into a 1:51 mile, should prove tough to catch here; 2- Mister Skitter: Takes a big step up but off a career best effort; 5- My Sugar Daddy: Has yet to win one locally this season but usually factors for minor spoils; 3- Affluenza

Race 9: 5- Titus Seelster: Faded badly in last but hoping that one was just a clunker, in position to make the top; 3- Bondi Hanover: First over winner last week and in a similar spot here; 1- Vance Bayama: Invader gets the rail for minor spoils; 2- Mariner Seelster
