There is a big 13-race card set to go at the Meadowlands tonight. The feature rolls in Race 9, the Reynolds Memorial for 3-year-old colt and gelding trotters with a $81,200 purse. The 0.50 Pick 4 starts in Race 8, it has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
3-Beautiful Sin-Royally bred filly has come close but still looking for 1st win of 2019, should be in the hunt.
4-Cloud Nine Fashion-Was racing fine on Lasix but can't tonight, using anyway with Tetrick-Campbell duo.
5-When Dovescry-4th start for Allard trainee who appears to be rounding into form, best to respect.
8-The Ice Dutchess-Form has been flat but now makes 3rd straight Big M start, this could be the time for a big try.
5-Sheena's Boy-Having a much better sophomore season, could get a close-up seat and trip out.
7-Mr Vicktor-In fine form, although this is a Big M debut races well at VD, looks like a player at a square price.
11-Swandre The Giant-Just when I was starting to doubt the The Giant he woke up and will string along here.
5-Marion Marauder-Off almost 4 weeks, tuned-up well and this is a good spot, is no stranger to Big M winner's circle.
9-Manchego-Going back on Lasix should matter and puts this classy mare in play with Dunn, even from this post.
3-Hayden Hanover-Hung to 52.3 half in last and will excuse that start, a big threat if repeats previous efforts.
4-Lyons Steel-In top form, has faced better and fits well here, offers some value at 8-1 in the ML.
8-Wheels On Fire-Missed a start and bumps up after a nice win from the 10-hole, Burke trainee likes to win.
9-Done Well-Another from Burke barn, has faced tough foes and has big gate speed, Dunn may blast out.
Race 8) 3,4,5,8
Race 9) 5,7,11
Race 10) 5,9
Race 11) 3,4,8,9
Total Ticket Cost) $48
