The feature at the Meadowlands this evening rolls in Race 6, a fillies and mares Preferred Handicap with a $20,000 purse. The 0.50 Pick 4 sequence begins in Race 7, it has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
1-Misslarose - Part of a Burke entry has breaking issues but Gingras knows well, in this if minds manners.
7-New Jersey Viking - Drops to a better level and gets a new pilot, should be able to leave and get into contention.
8-Trolley - Been off since 9/23 but had 2 good qualifiers, a player if ready versus this field.
9-Simply Volo - Will use at 10-1 in the ML, should like the company and does well at the Big M, needs a good steer.
5-Followthewind N - Tough trip in last, makes 3rd start on Lasix and could be sitting on a big try.
6-Ok Heavenly - No chance in last, now drops to a spot to shine and McCarthy steers again.
8-DelightfulMemphisn - 3rd straight Big M start for ML chalk, is in the mix but will need a trip.
1A-Verdi D Em - Part of Harmon entry is looking for 2nd win in 2 years, but with this crew, best to not overlook.
5-Bizet - Even effort off the bench in last, is in the mix if steps up off that try.
6-Another Chapter - Needs to mind manners but might be better on the big oval, winner of >$86k in 2017 fits.
1-Dov's Song - 1st start at Big M was ok, will take a swing at a price with McCarthy, tough foes outside.
7-Frog Pond Princess - ML chalk drops to lowest level in some time, could blast out and get a good seat.
8-Hepburn Hanover - 3-yr-old could beat older if B. Miller finds some cover, could be rolling fastest in late going.

Race 8) 5,6,8
Race 9) 1,5,6
