Race 7: (9) Zen Major had tough trips in last two starts and held well, should be tough despite the post. (6) Yankee Devil just missed in last and adds Salix.
Race 8: (8) Casino King landed on my sharp list after showing good speed in a race he may have needed. (5) Get It Now got a perfect trip in last and beat this type and should go well again.
Race 9: (1) De Vins Girl drops, moves inside and picks up Campbell while showing signs of breaking out. (5) Carolstern has been finished strongly and gets a better post.
Race 10: This is the toughest race of the sequence, a weak 12-horse field of trotters going a mile and a sixteenth. I'll use all four of my listed contenders, (4) Take It To Nine, (6) Baileys Photo, (7) Ax Man and (12) Striking Forever.
