‚ÄčTop Selections:  504/1250    40.3%    

Race 1:
#2 B Seventeen--Before his last race clunker, he was racing very well. Solid qualifier to show he's shaken it off. Brett Miller alert.
#3 Bubbie Boy--Nice win from P8, hung out the entire mile. It was an off track where the front end gave way often. Still, contender.
#5 Yes Your Mattjesty--Has not done much since last being claimed. He is better than those recent miles. Gets Wrenn. Player.
Race 2:  
#2 J J Tanner--Won 2of4. Tough first over trip on a strong leader, last wk. Fights hard to the wire. Slight nod in competitive race.
#4 Caribbean Beach--Has been sharp since being claimed into red hot Rhoades barn. Improved post. A likely big threat.
#3 Best Shot--Once top driver Gray jumped in bike, he won 4 straight at Saratoga on the lead. Major player from lead, in Nlfd debut.
Race 3: 
#8 Wind Of The North--Has been hard to beat on the lead.  Getting assigned P8 give the field a fighting chance but still one to beat.
#6 Grana Padanno--Finishing miles strong. While he has won 2of3, he normally runs out of room and hit the bottom frequently.
#9 Sass--Won 2of4 at Open1. Aaron chose off to driver #8 but getting Brett Miller isn't too bad. If front end falters he's be a threat.

Race 4:
#1 Y S Joe--Has looked good recently and gets the rail tonight. If Aaron avoids an early speed dual he should hold off all challengers late.
#5 Adversary Seelster--Strong closer that needs the front end to falter to win. Regardless, he should pass quite a few to hit the bottom.
#6 Momma's Jolt--With minimal speed to his direct inside, Page should find a good early seat. Has done well when forwardly placed.

Race 5:
#1 How Are Yee John--Finally avoided a tough trip and cashed in for Burke barn. This is a very strong NW6500 field but still one to beat.
#2 New Evidence--2nd time Lasix. Has had excuses in recent miles. Has flashed big potential. If Stahl finds open road late, win threat.
#5 Barley Up--Moves up after a confidence building win. Used to facing better. Speed to his inside so he'll need a top effort here.
Race 6:
#8 HeadForTheBeach--Racing better than the lines indicate. Now claimed into Massey barn plus upgrade to Wrenn. Can overcome P8
#1 Great American--Has had excuses since being claimed. Capable of more than he's shown. From the rail, he should be a factor.
#4 A Farmboys Success--Can leave/close giving Page nice options from P4. Won 2of4 versus similar to these. Solid Nfld debut likely.

Race 7:
#2 Gorgeous View--Take away last wk's off track mile and he been finishing sub 29 every week. Lots of ways to challenge from P2. 
#4 Play It Again Sam--Hit the board in 5 straight. Eye popping win 3 back and fought hard to finish last 2. Major player on those efforts.
#7 Gypsy Leather--Hit the board in 3of4 at Yonkers/Pocono versus similar to this. Allard drives/owns. Bomb worth including on tickets.
Race 8: 
#6 Annie's Rocketman-Snowy track was not kind to leaders, last wk. Likely overlooked but we wont be fooled and use him on top here.
#2 Mesmerized--Capable of a big mile. Has raced well with Aaron in bike, in the past. From a likely lead/pocket he'll challenge for win.
#7 Bowdie De Vei--Has not won but has hit the board in 5 straight, finishing strong. If Lems avoids excess/dead cover, he can hit bottom.
Race 9:
#3 Lucky Lime--Has been a contender at Open1 level, even assigned P8 sometimes. Inside draw+NW level=clearly the one to beat. 
#2 Blue Spanx--Moves up after a win on the lead. Kash always give this one a premium drive as he trains also. Longshot to use.
#7 Independent One--Was favored 4of5 races at Dayton. Those fields were equal to, or better than this one. Player in Nfld debut.

Race 10:
#5 Bali--Finishing miles strong at Yonkers. Ships in for claiming series.. 37x winner did most of his damage in Canada versus similar
#6 Sin City Shark--When Wrenn takes the reigns from Schillaci a big mile normally ensues. Wrenn chose off 2 inside horses too.
#9 Owen Hanover--Claimed twice in last 3 races. Capable of a big mile. P9 will be tough but he gets Brett Miller. Can step up here.

Race 11: 
#5 Crusoe Hanover--Drops from Open level. Gets an upgrade to Aaron. 9X winner this years looks to take advantage of drop in class.
#1 Western Captive--Has run some big miles when drawing inside. Lems likely rides the rail and looks for room late. In the mix.
#2 Tail Gunner Hall--He is capable of running the biggest mile of this group but is not consistent. Can Brett tap into his big potential?

Race 12:
#4 Stride Of Pride--Avoids Southwind Amazon and gets a good draw. A bit unlucky the last couple. If not locked in, he likely wins.
#6 Major Nemeis--Has been off a month, being scratched injured. Would like his chances if he was 100% but cant expect that.
#8 Shooter's Dream--Hit the board in 5 straight, finishing miles strong. Needs some help from P8 but worth using on bottom at big odds.
Race 13: 
#5 Rocky Regal--Dropped to 8CL level and Wrenn took over the driving, resulting in 3 nice miles. If not used hard early, big shot at win.
#1 Mustang Tom--Has done his best work from the lead/pocket. Getting the rail should allow him to be in position to be a major factor.
#4 Mach Stockn Barrel--Have expected better from him since shipping in. Gets an upgrade to Aaron. Can he wake him up?

Race 14: 
#4 Fly Jesse Fly--Has been favored in 4 of his last 6 with only 1 win. Dropped to NW and was outfought to wire. Capable of better.
#5 Eyes Cool--Lightly raced 4 yr has big time potential. Has pulled away late for the win in most recent miles. But, does break stride.
#1 Hupomone--Easy win last time out but takes a big jump up in class. Gets Brett and the rail, so likely rides the rail and can hit bottom.
Race 15:
#5 Modern Gesture--Most horses didn'tt do well on the front end last wk. Disregard last wk. In this evenly matched finale I give slight nod.
#3 Deseronto--Just missed from P7, at big odds, in a field not much better than this. Improved post. A similar effort could surprise.
#4 Percy's Z Tam--Blazing fractions and he easily circled the leaders and surged down lane for easy win. Tougher here, but still a player.
