2-King On The Hill – Added trotting hopples after the late break in his first start & twice finished a solid second in NJSS, was closing fast & just missed the final


3-Feed Your Head – This Takter-tuned filly got off to a good start with a second in round one of NJSS, was pace compromised in round two, then had no chance from post ten in the final


1-Deacon Tony – Lightly-raced Burke trained gelding started off well this season, struggled in his last two sires stakes events, this is a softer spot to progress further



6-Mcace Of Arts – Beaten favorite forced wide from a tough spot, paced home in :26.2 chasing a runaway Velocity Lana in last Friday’s finale & finds a field she can handle for Team Harmon


3-Joyful Game – Was chasing some Open company @ Tioga Downs before getting bogged down at the back of the pack here last week, 1:51.2 winner here last season draws inside again


4-Cedar Hall Heiress – Left alertly & followed along after a three-hole trip for minor spoils in her Big M debut behind Mcace Of Arts & company, has a chance to improve on that acclimating mile



2-Crescent Fashion – Took some tote action last week & responded with an aggressive second to heavy favorite Market Share, gets further class relief & lands inside


3-Triumphant’s Chip – Was charging late out of traffic for the show spot & disqualified for interference in his debut here, 13-time winner last season should be tighter & drops


1-Sheer Flex – Dropped to the level below this & chased a revved up Moonlight Cocktail, draws inside that rival & makes his third start for a high percentage barn



5-Jewels In Hock – 1:51.4 winner here in 2016 was left in the wake of a world record mile in last week’s Preferred, figures to be tighter for her only fourth start of the season


6-Market Share – 2012 Hambo hero took full advantage of the drop to this level & romped to an overdue win, classy 8YO looks like a repeater


2-Second Sister – Took her mark of 1:54.1 here this season, been tackling tougher @ Pocono, draws inside here to stalk any possible speed



4-Hyway Marcus – Romped to an easy 1:55 romp here three starts back to break his 2017 goose egg, rallied to hit the board from a post nine last week, may be the sharpest in this match up


2-Keenan – Simply raced better two weeks ago, sat a two-hole & had to settle for second behind

a well-rated winner, draws better for a similar trip here


6-Panana Republic – Twice a winner in this GSY Club Series recently, thwarted by a slow start from post nine & traffic last out, look for Hannah Miller to get her more involved



3-Shivered – Erv Miller trainee with Hambo aspirations, first two starts this season were solid, then had no chance off a slow pace in his EBC elimination, chance to prove something here


7-Achille Duharas – Lightly-raced Hambo eligible for Team Takter, flashed a bit of talent at two, second qualifier here was noteworthy & finds a soft spot to launch his sophomore season


6-Winneress – Garnered minor spoils making his 3YO in NYSS, steady Smedshammer trainee has a chance to stretch out on the mile track & progress further in a wide-open field



5-Venus Delight – 2015 Dan Patch Award winner & TVG champion was a $95,000 Harrisburg buy last Fall, millionaire makes her second start off the bench for Team Alagna


6-Inittowinafortune – Tripped out & rallied in a sharp :26.1 to pull a nice upset in her last win here, horse-for-the-course has been freshened up for a Summer campaign


2-Abbijade Hanover – Finished a hard-charging third again from post ten last week, in line for a better trip within closer striking range here



2-Explosive – Four different tracks in his last four starts & his best result was a third, placed second here last week, huge chance to build on that with another inside draw


7-Texican – Lightly-raced gelding ventured to Vernon Downs & rallied sharply for second in NY

Excelsior A action & may be gaining confidence for Trond


5-Muscle High – Clearly overmatched, yet gained valuable experience against superior NJSS foes, this is a softer spot to ignite his career



9-Myammie Drama – Won her first start of the season here with a quick start from post seven, was chasing the likes of Ariana G in NJSS, now gets class relief & goes second time Lasix


4-Wutan – Takter-tuned Hambo hopeful made some noise here early last Fall in the Kindergarten Series, won his Gaitway qualifier over a well-rated Praying Gear


1-Iron Dome – Chapter Seven colt draws the rail off two encouraging starts this season, keeps that positive trend going with a smooth stalking trip scenario in a wide-open field



1-I C Caviar – Got shuffled & shook late to finish third in his first start off the bench, remains at the reduced level & Irish Joe can control his destiny from the rail in this soft finale


7-Marty De Vie – Trotted with a lot more confidence & success when he finished second with trotting hopples added & makes his third start for the high percentage Buter barn


4-Brookroad Knight – Beaten favorite stayed flat & finished third in his second start of the season @ Pocono, draws well for his return to the mile track & reunited with Jim Marohn, Jr.
