5 - JPS MINI ME (9/5) . . .Took advantage of a perfect trip to take his debut at BMP. Trainer/driver Gillespie has been winning at a good clip, especially with babies. Could power past these. WINNER: $3.60, $2.40, $2.10
4 - FOX VALLEY DIJON (8/1) . . .Crushed foes at a fair race last week in his debut. Gets a test here. Chance to prove if he is for real.
6 - SINGULAR SIGHT (10/1) . . .Perfect trip last Sunday at BMP to finish second best in a quick 1:55.4. Broke in previous race. Hard to rule out.
1 - FOX VALLEY NORMAN & 1a - FOX VALLEY ANDY (5/2) . . .Sawgrass Farms entry. NORMAN showed speed at BMP in debut last week. Draws well here and gets Oosting. ANDY is making first lifetime start and probably needs the race.
3 - COLECHESTER (7/2) . . .Raced a few days ago to a third place finish at BMP. Looks like he has a strong late kick. Might motor past these if he can get in striking range.
2 - SAGE RUCK (6/1) . . .Rucker trainee makes debut. Barn not showing any recent success with first timers. Let's watch this one.
8 - BAUER'S Z TAM (6/1) . . .Went a tough trip last week at BMP and was still very close at the wire. A lively pace here could set things up for this guy. Likes to win. Price could be right. WINNER: $24.20, $10.80, $4.80
1 - M M WEST (5/2) . . .Was an easy winner at this level last week. Could be on or near the lead once again. Major player.
3 - RIO'S Z TAM (3/1) . . .Been a monster for Warren barn, finishing either first or second in eight straight. Will be in the fighting line again.
7 - SENTIMENTALJOURNEY (4/1) . . .Returns after battling tougher at the HOP. Lost a heartbreaker last time he raced here. Might leave and hope for the best.
6 - FOX VALLEY SEE YA (15/1) . . .Was never in it last time from the eight post. Has a strong late kick, just needs to get within range. He'll get there one if these nights.
4 - THE JANITOR (12/1) . . .Flattened out last week against these. Reunited with top driver. Won the last time Oosting drove.
2 - GO TUFFY (8/1) . . .Last three were dull. Needs much more to compete with this rugged group.
5 - RICH N SPORTY (10/1) . . .Affrunti barn magic has not worked on this one yet. Last few were dull. Pass for now.
1 - MISSY MUFFLER (5/2) . . .Surged to the lead like a runaway train last week and scored an overdue win. Cannot go against after that eye-popping move. Repeat in the cards. WINNER: $4.20, $3.00, $2.60
3 - FRUSTRATED FRAN (3/1) . . .BMP shipper shows speed at times. Could be a big factor here if she goes to the top.
5 - FOX VALLEY DINA (8/1) . . .Liked her last week and she had all sorts of road trouble. Could make amends with a clean trip.
2 - ANNIE'S MILE (4/1) . . .Running Aces invader was not much of a factor last time out. Showed speed in prior races at BMP. Should be involved in early fray and could hang around for a slice.
7 - TOWNE'S DARLIN (6/1) . . .Makes debut for Arriaga barn and gets services of top driver. Horse won the last time Oosting drove. Will be tested from out here, but cannot be ruled out.
4 - MISSY MACK (12/1) . . .Makes third start of the year. Has yet to show much of anything. Pass until we see some progress.
6 - LANGTREE LILY (10/1) . . .Has not been close in last several races. Pass.
8 - PEYTON'S PINKY (15/1) . . .Has yet to do anything since coming to this barn. Hard to like from out here.
3 - GOT IT SEELED N (7/2) . . .BMP shipper making third start of the year for respected trainer Von Knoblauch. Showed some speed last time out. Hoping for an aggressive early move by Roberts. Could wire these.
2 - KEITHER (3/1) . . .Handled a softer group last week to pick up the overdue win. Will be in the mix once again.
9 - SMOKEN CAMBEST (8/1) . . .Lines are littered with scratches, so there are some issues here. Has the ability to compete with these if ready.
1 - AMERICAN GOLD (9/2) . . .Liked him last week and he never could find room. Should have better position from here and can redeem himself.
4 - MASTER JEEVES (12/1) . . .Found eight claimers a bit rough. In a better spot here. Might have to come first up.
5 - PALMER (10/1) . . .Packs a late wallop. Will need striking position, but can zoom past a bunch of these in the lane.
6 - LA CABANA (6/1) . . .Was used a little early and still came on late to get third. Must respect Affrunti barn. Can pull off the upset with the right trip.
7 - WHATSHOULDIDO (15/1) . . .Has not won a race in ages. Might show some speed, but needs to find more stamina.
8 - DRAGON ON DEMAND (15/1) . . .Last several have been brutal. Pass.
2 - WELL TO DO GURU (1/1) . . .Was way too tough for these last time. Hard to see him losing with the rail. No price, but as solid as they come. WINNER: $2.20, $2.10
6 - DOUBLETROUBLE (9/2) . . .Was parked out to the above when they squared off last time. Should find live cover here and round out the exacta.
4 - THISBIGDOGWILFIGHT (3/1) . . .Gutsy veteran has speed and will look to sit behind the top choice. Can come on late to hit the ticket.
3 - FOX VALLEY YUKON (6/1) . . .Parlayed a rail trip to a second place finish to the Guru last time. Will probably have to work a little harder here, but can certainly vie for minor award.
5 - BIG DADDY WOO WOO (12/1) . . .Returns to the local scene after a sizzling race down at SPR. Can compete with these when at the top of his game.
1 - LAZY LIZARD & 1a - RAGING CAM (10/1) . . .Both of these Perry Smith trainees have had their moments this year. Unfortunately, they both appear overmatched against this group.
2 - GAME BELIEF (6/1) . . .Was bet down and finished second last week in debut for Durante barn. Draws well again and switches to Oosting. Hoping for lead or two-hole.
4 - MOSES HANOVER (3/1) . . .Came on like a freight train and just missed last week. Is almost always a factor with this kind. Should gun for the top from here.
1 - SAND JAKE (9/2) . . .Does not win often, but hits the board frequently. Should be in the mix throughout from here.
3 - WESTERN SIGN (7/2) . . .Took advantage of a perfect trip last time and finished second to a rugged foe. Another with good early foot. Can be tough if he can get to the lead.
9 - LAWSUIT (10/1) . . .Took advantage of the rail position and hung on for the win last time out. Will need some clever driving from Deano to repeat. Difficult, not impossible.
6 - JOANIES IRISH LUCK (15/1) . . .Has been a non-factor in his last three starts. Driver change to Leonard could help cause.
5 - BEN'S JD (12/1) . . .Winless in 16 tries this year. Last several on the dull side. Pass.
7 - NIGHTINTHEBOX (8/1) . . .Makes 2012 debut. Did not show much in qualifier. Looks to need a race.

6 - HE'S A GOLD DIGGER (8/1) . . .Made a break last time and finished far back. Has speed and looks like he could be a major contender for tonight's new driver. WINNER: $33.20, $7.00, $4.60
8 - CAGE FIGHTER (6/1) . . .Returns after taking on stakes competition at the HOP. Came on late in his only start on this track back in May. Will need a lively pace and cover, but he has the look of a contender here. Post and inexperienced driver Wingard are obvious concerns.
2 - BLUEBIRD MUFFLER (12/1) . . .Owns a win and a third place finish in two starts on this track. Fits with these and price looks right.
7 - DON'T DARE DIS DOG (7/2) . . .Steps up after a nice win last week. Tough task from here, but looks like he might have the talent to overcome the obstacles.
4 - FRESHMAN PHENONOM (2/1) . . .Beaten favorite came up short yet again. Only 1 win in 23 starts is a concern. Hard to put on top, but is a must use underneath.
3 - CJ'S REAL DEAL (9/2) . . .Finished a distant third to a runaway winner last time out. Another that does not seem to have the winning habit. Looks good for a minor award.
1 - HUGGY BEAR (15/1) . . .Has shown speed at times. Will be in contention throughout.
5 - ROCK RIVNDEL (12/1) . . .Winless in 53 starts. Is nearing DiMaggio territory.
2 - WESTERN COLE (3/1) . . .Was an impressive front-end winner last week. These do not appear much tougher. Should have control again. WINNER: $2.80, $2.40, $2.20
3 - DARETODOGREATHINGS (15/1) . . .Was an easy winner last time Oosting drove, and he's in the bike here. Could sit behind the #2 and power down the open stretch.
9 - FIVE COUGARS A (7/2) . . .Finally put everything together last week and crushed an easier field. Will have to work harder from here, but cannot be ruled out.
6 - ANESCAPE N (8/1) . . .String of excuses continues to grow as this one just cannot seem to get over the hump. Certainly fits with these and will likely find a way into the tri.
4 - KING Z TAM (10/1) . . .This one has been tossing hints lately. Moves up in class here, but just needs some clear sailing and he could blow up the tote board.
1 - NATURAL LAD N (6/1) . . .Draws well again and will probably have another nice trip. Will hope for a seam late to pick up a minor award.
5 - A AND GS EXPRESS (9/2) . . .Was a distant second to the #9 last time out. Will likely blast and hope for the best. Needs to avoid getting parked out.
8 - PAPA BRIAN (15/1) . . .Seems to struggle at this level, but he was not far off last time. Needs a hot pace and live cover to spring the upset.
7 - INDESCRIBABLE (12/1) . . .Finished far back in the slop last time at BMP. Had success here in his previous two starts on this oval. In this competitive event, this guy is one of many that has a shot to sneak in this at big odds.
1 - BET ON ART (9/2) . . .Kind of surprised to see this one in for a tag. Took on stakes competition at the HOP last week. Was a dominant winner last time he raced here. If everything is okay with this guy, he wins for fun. WINNER: $3.40, $2.20, $2.10
7 - SHASKA (8/1) . . .Changed tactics last week and went to an early lead before fading. With a bunch of speed in here, he could try to follow cover and blow by the tiring pacesetters. Sneaky play here.
4 - JJ SUPREME (3/1) . . .Battled to the wire as the favorite last week at BMP. Does not win often, but has the speed to hang on for a slice.
5 - STRYKER (9/2) . . .Impressive second last week from the eight hole. Gets better post and the switch to Oosting is also a plus. Early move likely.
6 - AMERICAN LEASE (12/1) . . .Last two were dull. Has shown good speed at times. Perhaps tonight's new driver can turn things around.
8 - FOX VALLEY TOCCOA (15/1) . . .Finished far back in last two. Will need to find more to contend from here.
2 - AIRY HEIR (8/1) . . .Has not won in forever. Has not been all that close to hitting the board either. Pass.
3 - MR PROSPECT (15/1) . . .Has not been close to the money in months. Pass.
5 - TIMELESS ARTIST (6/1) . . .Taking a shot with this gal in a very competitive race. Returns after finishing a solid second last week from BMP's 10 post. With some horses in here that figure to battle on the front, this one could be in position to pick up some pieces late.
8 - FINAL ATTRIBUTE (15/1) . . .Expecting a big race from this closer too. Been chasing softer foes, but the pace could be to her liking. Packs a late wallop.
3 - WEEKEND UPDATE (7/2) . . .Speedball was not able to hold off a similar field last week. Is inside of other main speed. Will be tough to collar.
4 - MAKIN' A STATEMENT (3/1) . . .Was part of some scorching fractions last week before tiring. Appears to want the lead at all costs. Can be trouble if she can clear.
6 - PILGRIMS HALEY (9/2) . . .Could benefit from a fast pace. Should have live cover. No surprise if she blows by them all.
2 - MAKENA CAT (8/1) . . .Was overmatched last time out at BMP. Eaton barn has good #'s with class droppers. Has some speed, but will likely try to come from off the pace here. Extremely usable.
1 - COLE BLUE (10/1) . . .Speed and rail comes into this off a front-stepping victory. Won't get an easy lead here. Will look to sit behind speed and make a move late.
7 - VIP FILLY (12/1) . . .Handled a much easier field last time out. Also likes the front, but there's no way she gets it here. Has three wins in seven tries this year. Will need lots of luck.
9 - CANDY N APPLES (15/1) . . .Perfect trip helped her finish an improved second last week. Hard to envision a perfect trip here. Looks overmatched with this rugged group.
1 - MR ROCKFORD & 1a - MISCHIEF MAN (5/1) . . .Both parts of the Moffitt trained entry are in good form. ROCKFORD was bet down and handled a pretty decent group last week. MISCHIEF makes debut for new connections after being claimed last week. Either one of these could win this with the right trip. Will take the two-for-one deal.
7 - CON GAME (9/2) . . .Takes another step up in class, but it might not matter with the way this one is racing. With speed inside of him, he will be put to the test from here. Might be sharp enough to overcome the adversity.
4 - GALACTIC STAR (2/1) . . .BMP shipper has shown speed against some tough foes. Prefers the front and will have to deal with speed inside of him. Can be a big factor if he takes to the half.
5 - PICASSOS BOY (8/1) . . .With a ton of speed in here, things could set up nicely for this guy. Can uncork a big move at times. Might blow by them all late.
6 - TURN IT UP LOUD (12/1) . . .Made a bold surge last time out to finish third at this level. Can surprise these with a well-timed move.
2 - ICE MAN COMET'H (3/1) . . .Has been struggling lately, but a new driver and the rail could help turn things around. Is loaded with speed and could be tough to collar.
3 - DADE HALL (15/1) . . .Has not fared very well at this level. Looks overmatched.
9 - VOOMERANG (5/2) . . .Was parked out to sizzling fractions from the eight post last week. Still finished less than three lengths of the winner. Just needs clear sailing to get this done. WINNER: $4.00, $2.60, $2.10
8 - KAYDON BEGONE (6/1) . . .Went three-wide and just missed last week. Could leave and seek a good early spot, if not the top. Rates very high, despite the post.
1 - SAMEASITEVERWAS (12/1) . . .Seems to have righted the ship with improved efforts in his last three. Will be in the mix throughout.
3 - SMOOTH TRANSITION (9/2) . . .Looks like a talented three-year-old. Will likely seek the top. Can be trouble with an easy quarter.
4 - AT MAX SPEED (8/1) . . .Finished a close second against easier last time out. Might be overmatched, but Oosting chose him over the #5 and #7.
2 - PRIME ESCAPE (15/1) . . .Gained a ton of ground in the stretch last week. Moves inside and should be in the mix from here. Longshot to consider underneath.
6 - SPEAKIN GREEK (15/1) . . .Was not too far off in a start he figured to need. Has every right to improve off that effort and is another one that could hit this ticket with the right trip.
7 - NO GIN (15/1) . . .Has been dominating easier over the last several weeks. Makes debut for new connections after being claimed last week. Certainly sharp, but appears to be in over his head.
5 - COLEFEDERATE (7/2) . . .Form appears to be tailing off after two dull efforts. Pass for now.
8 - SWEEET TALKIN TOM (3/1) . . .Finished second to a rugged winner last time out. Trainer Affrunti has kept his one sharp for weeks. Will have his work cut out for him from out here, but he looks good enough to overcome the post.
5 - GAR (5/2) . . .Another one that has been in sizzling form for weeks. Fully expect him to unleash a furious charge. Major contender.
3 - SLEAZY MR E (4/1) . . .Been taking on tougher lately. This field should be more to his liking. Might try to blast for early position.
2 - FOX VALLEY LIBERO (8/1) . . .Perfect trip last week and finished third to a tough winner. Figures to have good position once again.
1 - FOX VALLEY SLAMMER (6/1) . . Was never really a factor last week with a little tougher. Should be more involved from here. Rarely wins, but is certainly usable underneath.
7 - GEORGE'S ZTAM (10/1) . . .Closed ground late to pick up show dough last week. Typically a factor with this kind. Will need some luck from out here.
4 - ALLAMERICAN BOMBER (12/1) . . .Last several have been somewhat dull. Perhaps driver change to Roberts could help cause.
6 - CELEBRITY BEST (15/1) . . .Was a total no-show in his debut for trainer Conley. Passing for now.
6 - FLIP (7/2) . . .Was never in position last week. Reunion with top driver huge, as the horse was victorious the last two times Oosting was in the bike. Should blast to the top and will be tough to catch.
1 - FOX VALLEY DOMINO (3/1) . . .Was far back last week and finished fifth to a tough winner. Should have better position here.
8 - WILSON'S TRACKS (9/2) . . .Twice beaten favorite looks to make amends for new driver. Might leave for early position. Cannot dismiss anything from Affrunti barn.
7 - KB'S ROBBY (6/1) . . .Usually fires off the gate. Has not held off a field in quite a while. Might hang around for a slice.
5 - JOEZEHRLOVESJOHNNY (8/1) . . .Showed a little improvement last week finishing a distant third. Still has more work to do.
2 - BRYN TIN TIN (10/1) . . .Has not won in ages. Was trapped behind a tiring horse last week. Is making third start after a layoff. Could sneak in that High-Five.
3 - RIVER OF FAITH (12/1) . . .Has not been remotely close in weeks. Pass.
4 - SECURED RISK (15/1) . . .Still struggling after the long layoff. Passing until we see progress.
9 - INNOVATION (15/1) . . .Has not been close in weeks. On auto-toss for now.
