Race 1:                                                         
#9 Iron Mine Johnny--Has trotted well since arriving. Lost to an Open level class dropper last wk. Will be in a good late striking position. 
#5 Pop I--When he is in top form he has won in fields tougher than this. Kash finds a spot that he should challenge even if not sharp.
#2 Carbon Footprint--Last week's effort was better than it looks. Has been a player versus these types at Nfld over the years. Player.

Race 2:
#4 American Steele--Can leave or close, giving Goodell nice options from P4. Fights hard to the finish and I give the slight nod here.
#3 Star Buster--Has breaking issues and not the most consistent sort. However, he's capable of the biggest mile. Surely a win threat.
#8 BloodstocksHallTab--Nice closer. If there is a battle on the front he will be charging hard from the back. Passes a few regardless.

Race 3:  
#9 Crusoe Hanover--Solid second, from P8, losing to a winner on the rise.  Big middle move likely and he should pull away late for win.
#1 Commentariat--3rd race off a layoff. With any improvement he will be a contender. If not used hard early, at least lands on ticket.
#2 J J Tanner--Has been favored at levels higher than this but has underachieved since being claimed for 20k. Looks to get on track here. 

Race 4:
#5 New Evidence--Has had excuses in has last 2 Nfld starts. Capable of much more. Gets redemption here and blows door off this field.
#3 Crosswinds Dodger--Can leave or close. Keeps coming late in miles. Should outfight most of the late. Most likely to finish second.
#1 Elrama--Big post improvement. Raced well when he drew inside back in February. Rides the rail and looks for room late. Bottom.

Race 5:
#4 Keystone Memphis--Hit the board in 5 straight and now gets claimed into red hot Rhoades barn. Adds Aaron too. Lights out here.
#1 LoveDancinWithYou--Finishing well the last few but he races his best from the lead/pocket. He will be the main threat to the 4.
#5 Two Beat--Won 2of3 and stepped up to this 8CL level and finished a solid second. On a similar effort he will be in the mix, late.

Race 6:
#6 Starry Nite Teen--Moves up from 6CL to 10's after a couple of dominating wins, final 1/4 in 28 flat. Slight edge in competitive field.
#2 Lodi Machette Man--Hit the board in 4of6 as mostly a longer shot. He should be in a good position to challenge for the win tonight. 
#1 Y S Joe--He was the Fav often, in fields like this, last yr. Expect a much improved effort here as he wont be caught at the back.

Race 7:
#8 Graceful Jarmbro--Has a massive late move. Will need some help from P8. 2nd race off layoff and could blow up the tote board.
#1 Bowdie De Vie--Dominating wire to wire win, 2 back, in a field similar to this on, makes him the one to beat from the rail tonight.
#6 Wilberforce--Has been a player at Open levels a couple yrs back. 5th race off a layoff and appears to be rounding into that form.

Race 8:
#4 Bully Pulpit--Drops from Open1 where he was a major player. Gets an upgrade to Aaron. Flexes his muscles and gets the win.
#5 Vinovio--Two confidence building wins and he moves back up to the Open levels. Has been impressive/sharp. Contender.
#3 He Can Fly--Two straight wins since shipping to Nfld. An impressive 54.4 second half last wk. A similar effort handles move up.  

Race :9: 
#7 Dancin Yankee--1.88M in the bank. One of the best ever in Ohio. Gets post advantage over Amazon. Shows'em he's still got it.
#8 Southwind Amazon--Won 29of48 over last 2 seasons as is the beast at Nfld. Assigned P8 to give the rest a shot. Big battle tonight.
#2 Just Toyin With Ya--Won 3of5, blowing by Amazon a couple races back. Gets the post advantage. Will need 7 & 8 to battle early.

Race 10:
#1 Barn Sis--Has been sharp, challenging for the win each week. Gets the post advantage tonight. Looks to outfight them all late. 
#5 Grana Padanno--When sharp he has been assigned P8 at Open1. Has a big late move. Big shot if with a couple lengths at 3/4.
#2 Rompaway Galaxy--Fought hard to get the lead and almost lasted to the line, as the Fav. Will be right there as they turn for home.

Race 11:
#2 Ogradys First Man--Avoids the tough Open1. Races well from the lead/pocket. In an evenly matched field I like his chances the best.
#7 ShagnWithTheDragon--Has raced in strong fields. Lightly raced 5 yr old appears to have nice potential. Looks for confidence booster.
#4 Tebow Time--Has one nice move. If Sugg can wait to use it at the 3/4 pole, he will be a contender. Regardless, can pass a few late.

Race 12:
#8 Barnabas--Just missed from P8 last wk at the Open2,  Aaron should be forwardly placed & make a 2nd move to challenge for win.
#6 World Of Gaming--Was a big Fav at NW levels in his previous years. Could step up, at big odds, to flash that form here tonight. 
#2 Official Delight--Made huge improvement at 4 yrs old. 3rd race off a layoff. Very nice wire to wire win last wk. One you cant ignore.
Race 13: 
#1 Brooklynite--When Aaron takes the reigns on a Headworth trainee a strong mile is likely. No lock as he'll need to avoid early pressure.
#2 Anoche--Much better than his recent lines indicate as he was near the back in all of them. Better position here so he'll be a contender.
#4 Montero Blue Chip--When sharp he is capable of wiring most field, even Open levels. Showed improvement. Getting closer to top form.

Race 14: 
#5 Stride Of Pride--Major player at top levels. Lost at NW last wk to a sharp foe,  now at Open levels. Forges to top and is not passed.
#1 Gorgeous View--Has been very consistent giving quality miles. This is a stronger field than he's used to seeing but player from rail.
#4 A Real Miracle--Has had mixed results when racing at Nfld. It appears he needs the lead/pocket to be effective so start is key.

Race 15:
#2 Valiente Stride--In good form now. Easy win two back and a solid second to one that is racing at Open2 this wk. One to catch.
#1 MacADoodleDoo--2nd race off a layoff. 4 yr old hit the board in 15of20 lifetime starts. Lake must avoid getting out third.
#5 Mr Big Load--Struggled the last few hence he drops in class. Prior he won versus fields similar to this one. Player from lead/pocket.
