9: Maxnificent (Eikleberry, Mamakos)120/20-1

NORTHHAMPTON KID caught a traffic-filled stretch in debut lacking room to move forward; strong contender for win honors with better trip. Stablemate CAPTAIN PAYCHECK ran third in first career start on the main track sprinting. HARD THUNDER ran behind top pick last out, finishing off the board; candidate to move forward.

13: Serious Gray (Eikleberry, Scherbenske)123/12-1

JULIE’S MEMORY just missed last two out by half length or less, settling for place honors; talented enough to shoot to the lead from the outside draw. MOUNT EAGLE looms as late closing threat coming off a seven-wide rallying win last out. TRANZIP, ARTISTIC LICENSE and DROPPED CALL are major players in this deep field.

11: Model Citizen (Dieguez, Sheehan)119/8-1

12: Caribbean Storm (Butler, Robertson)121/8-1

DUKE OF DEL REY failed to fire last out in allowance effort and should improve on class drop; late closer deserves another shot. BOREALIS WAY is usually in the mix from the get-go with solid positional speed, owner of two wins on the lawn this summer. WHY FRANK exits a victory after a hard-fought duel as the favorite. BILL OF RIGHTS, OH MY GRAVY and NO TIME LIMIT seek to be the buzz kill for the local contenders as dangerous shippers from Iowa.

7: Sugar Storm (Butler, Rengstorf)123/7-2

8: I’m Honour Grad (A. Canchari, Hemba)123/6-1

LAOPE is all speed and projects as the one to catch to get the win, should enjoy cutting back a furlong after weakening late last out. SUGAR STORM is the main threat stalking behind the expected hectic pace in the ideal spot for first attack. I’M HONOUR GRAD and HARD NOSE will keep Laope company up front early while doing all the dirt work for the closers.

9: Glorious Pegasus (Goodwin, Flores)118/30-1

10: Grand Full Moon (Martinez, Diodoro)118/2-1

GRAND FULL MOON is strictly the one to beat coming off a strong place effort in debut, freshened up with a couple of quick works. Roommate MAXWELL’S HAMMER begins racing career with a strong series of works. PEA SHOOTER PRO unveiling out of the Robertson barn appears to be promising with solid work tab entering.

10: Hi Prim (Shino, Hawley)123/12-1

FLASY EM split runners last out to get up for win and has every right to duplicate that effort. RAINIER MISSILE drops another notch after a couple of uninspiring performances, expect to vie for command up front from the break. INCISIVE won two back at this level and distance.

10: Brooktown (Martinez, Van Winkle)119/6-1

11: Lady Scatterley (P. Canchari, Becker)123/15-1

ONE HOT TAMOLLY enters off a couple of place landings at Prairie Meadows and is a good bet for local debut at a square price. URMYBABY took a backward step in local debut after shipping up from Iowa; tough call but will give another chance. BROOKTOWN didn’t enjoy the sloppy course last out after after winning debut by seven lengths.

10: Colette’s Secret (Eikleberry, Wolochuk)123/8-5

The nightcap appears to be a three horse race but give tepid nod to PLAY N TRUTH, dropping in class off the turf. Ran a strong second at today’s distance two back. Rival COLETTE’S SECRET will be in the mix early tracking the pace. DOCS MISS VICTORY stretches out to two turns for first time and appears one to chase.
