RACE 1

7-Chief Justice – The Chief flashed some sneaky late trot after missing 30 days & off two sick scratches, 1:54.4 winner here this season expected to show more

 

5-Winneress – Much better runner up in his last two, couldn’t quite outsprint Swancredit last week, draws inside that rival here & might be on the verge

 

10-Swancredit – Has rallied for three of his last four & two straight here with well-timed moves by Melissa Arbia, at the mercy of pace & traffic from post ten

 

RACE 2

5-Gottalovemyshadow – Took a mark of 1:50.2 here this season, easy winner @ Freehold two starts back, strong in the win column & finds a soft spot

 

6-Lookatmyart – Took two starts off the Edwin Quevedo claim to blow away a bottom condition bunch & took a new mark in the process, let’s see some more

 

7-VH Princess Brea – Looking to rebound with class relief after fading to seventh last week, tougher draw, yet hit the board in three of her previous four

 

RACE 3

5-Heartofgold Devie – This filly worked her way up to N/W 4 @ Yonkers & just missed with a nice late move three starts back, launches midpack here & picks up Gingras

 

3-Jula Magician – Tailed off in his last two soon after taking a mark of 1:55.2 @ Pocono, but exits N/W 4, draws inside, gets Tetrick & has a big chance to rebound

 

1-HL Revina – 2YO filly with some upside, note the solid to Venerable in the Matron, overwhelmed in the Goldsmith Maid & now move inside to face a much softer field

 

RACE 4

2-Zenith Stride – One for 17 in 2021, but rebounded off a miscue & sick scratch with a solid qualifier, classy colt draws & can assert himself in a field he can take advantage of

 

7-Brookroad Master – Pace compromised & still came up with a much-improved effort last week, now the post is more challenging, but he has something to build on

 

5-Shinkansen – Was on a nice form spree against N/W 5 @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, no chance chasing standout Redwhite N Goo in a useful acclimating mile one month ago 

 

RACE 5

3-Watchmeneighneigh – Horse-for-the-course perked up with a solid second last week, draws much better & could be poised for an overdue win

 

5-Elrama N – Forced wide & picked minor spoils in a decent effort last week, coming around since the mid-October sick scratch, 12YO worth a long look

 

4-Galactic Galleon N – 0 for 17 this season, but gave it a good try to hit the board again last week, just missed with a late surge before that & draws inside

 

RACE 6

1-Off The Record – Stuffed in off a modest pace last week, shuffled before that as the beaten favorite, 1:51 performer here this season gets the rail in a highly beatable field

 

6-Capsaicinn – Arrives in career form, went all the way for a new mark as the heavy favorite two starts back & looks like the main speed in this wide open affair

 

4-Northern Storm – Sub 1:50 performer @ The Big M this season scored first time Lasix from post seven, then got stung from post ten, Alagna Armada filly can rebound

 

RACE 7

2-P L Leeroy – Team Bongiorno-tuned gelding drops from tougher claimers, draws inside & gives Jacob Stillwell a big chance to trip out in a wide-open division

 

5-Elysium Seelster – Just missed with a strong third two starts back, then stormed home from last to just miss, now draws better & re-united with Roy Marohn

 

3-Ferdinand A – Went all the way in a well-rated mile & came away with a new mark @ age eight, then faded last week, draws inside to bounce back with James Slendor

 

RACE 8

6-Captains Maid – Team Bongiorno filly stormed home off a hot pace to repeat in style, gets another test for class from a more demanding post

 

3-Norman’s Madeline – Just your standard stock rebound blowout & new mark of 1:51.2 from post eight off breaks in two straight, now steps up with an improved post

 

4-Morning Has Broken – Followed up the mile of her life with a solid second to a heavy favorite last week, draws well again with positive trip potential

 

RACE 9

4-Double Account – Equaled his mark of 1:51.2 here this season, draws well again fresh off an excellent narrow loss with trot at both ends last week for Team Cullipher

 

3-Stormont Ventnor – This Team Cullipher trainee continues to climb the ladder & steps up further off a bounce-back first over second to heavily favored Max

 

7-Hillexotic – Returns to the Big M on quite a form spree & fresh off a dominant wire-to-wire score @ Yonkers, gets the outside draw, but can do it either way

 

RACE 10

5-Annabelle Hanover – Stormed home for the huge upset on Nov. 5, then struggled from post eight in her last two, now draws a bit better & has to get off to a better start 

 

8-Marloe Hanover – Came charging home from a tough spot to grab a piece of the TVG, nailed late as the heavy favorite by Annabelle on Nov. 5 & outside draw no picnic

 

7-Priceless – Fresh off a game speed try & yielded for the heavy favorite, she can also do it from off the pace & sharp on the comeback trail for Team Orange Crush

 

RACE 11

3-Rocknroll Captain – This Captain gave some indication with that solid second back on Oct. 23, impossible trips have plagued him since, yet now gets an inside draw 

 

5-Winning Linc – Back to The Big M off two no-chance trips @ Freehold, reclaimed by Richard Johnson & everybody saw the damage he did here recently

 

7-Rycroft – 10YO’s form not much to write about in his last three since the gutsy win back on Oct. 8, but now gets some class relief off an acclimating mile

 

RACE 12

3-Walleywalleyinfree – Responded with some recent freshening with an easy air-out mission @ Freehold, inside draw against soft opposition paves the way

 

5-Rockin Rambaran – 11YO warhorse just missed in his last two, seeks another ideal trip & may kick the door in here for an overdue win

 

4-Big Sweep Osborne – Wheels right back after being bothered by a first turn breaker @ Yonkers this past Tuesday, post ten winner here on Oct. 29 finally draws inside
