The Marc Campbell trainee has been assigned post 8 after winning this class his last two starts including a 1:54.4 scorcher in his latest. That post disadvantage is enough for race analyst Les MacIsaac to look another way and peg Euchred as the one who will acquire the front end. David Dowling trains and drives Euchred from post 5 after finishing no worse than third in all four of his seasonal outings. "Euchred was not able to exploit that great gate speed last week but it's a different story tonight as the one that set the pace in the latest is stuck out on the fence," MacIsaac said.

The top class will line up in race 9 as Jason Hughes picks up the catch drive behind Down On My Luck for trainer Patrick Shepherd and owner Robert Woodburn of St. Thomas, Ont.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - E R Quinn had his Thursday night winning streak cut short last week and with an outside post this week's feature is wide open at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 11-dash Thursday evening harness racing program kicks off at 6:30 P.M. with the $2,400 top pace lining up in race 10. E R Quinn is shouldered with post 8 but retains the services of top Canadian percentage driver Gilles Barrieau for trainer Jeff Holmes and owner Orwell Bay Stable. Likely To Win has been known to go on Thursday night feature hot streaks and leaves from post 2 this week for driver Adam Merner, while race analyst Les MacIsaac is taking a slightly longer play. MacIsaac is siding with post 5 starter Zero Rate to score a mild upset in the competitive field for driver Kenny Arsenault and trainer Michael Gallant. "Zero Rate is a rallying threat and if there are some quick early fractions, which is possible, it could be right up his alley," MacIsaac said. "If he gets some live flow and a cover trip to bring him into it late his chances go way up." Also in the field is Midnight Matt (Driven by Jason Hughes), Perfect Escape (Ron Matheson), Harbourlite Jerry (Steven Shepherd), Rockin Indy (David Dowling) and Hes Marvalous (Myles Heffernan Sr.).

Heavy post time favourite Carlisimo had broken equipment at the half-mile marker, and the talented sophomore pacer was pulled up by driver Marc Campbell and failed to finish the race.

Euchred sports two wins and second from just three starts this season but is shouldered with post 6 for trainer-driver David Dowling. Doctor Royal was the one to beat in this class the first two weeks of the season but took a week off after finishing fifth on May 18. Gilles Barrieau will drive Doctor Royal for Truro, N.S., trainer Dawn Ellis Abbott. Back-class is what race analyst Les MacIsaac will pin his selection on as he takes Rose Run Quest to win. "Rose Run Quest hit another gear up the backstretch last week and never looked back in winning his seasonal debut," MacIsaac said. "You got to think he would only get better which is scary for his rivals. He's the one to knock off." Rounding out the field is Mick Dundee (Driven by Don MacNeill), Revenant (Adam Merner) and IC True Grit (Mike McGuigan). The freshly minted rivalry resumes Saturday evening in the $2,800 Fillies and Mares Open pace in race 8 which will be part of the Drive For Home Series presented by Hillside Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac.

The 10-dash program kicks off at 1 P.M. with Carlisimo teaming up with Marc Campbell in the race 9 top event carrying a $2,700 purse. The Kevin MacLean trained Carlisimo rides a two-race win streak into the event and draws post 3 for owner Reg MacPherson of Stratford. The son of Shadow Play captured his Bob Dewar memorial division in 1:56.2 last Sunday with Campbell aboard but now advances to some iron tough aged company. Free-For-All pacer Adkins Hanover is part of that company as he will leave from post 4 with Ambyr Campbell at the helm for trainer Trevor Hicken and owner Perry Burke of Grosse-Ile., Que. With three on the board finishes in his last three tries, Adkins Hanover shows the quickest time on his program with a 1:55.3 mile in his latest. Race analyst Les MacIsaac will give the nod to Carlisimo to knock off his aged competitors. "Carlisimo has won three of four since the change of address and has already faced aged horses so exiting the stakes scene shouldn't pose a problem," MacIsaac said. "Looks like the road to the winners circle goes through him." Also in the compact field of five is Heza Workof Art (Driven by Mike McGuigan), Mando Fun (Dale Spence) and Soccer Hanover (Corey MacPherson). The back-up class goes to the gate in the race 10 finale with eight entrants vying for a $2,200 purse.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - A deeply competitive field will face off Saturday evening in the featured harness racing event at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Mick Dundee has rail control in the top class for owner-trainer-driver Don MacNeill of New Haven. The homebred son of Aahm Canadian Now has been knocking on the door the past few weeks in the preferred ranks but has yet to find the winner's circle. Last week's winner, Euchred, has post 6 and rides a two-race win streak into Saturday for trainer-driver David Dowling. Revenant has yet to miss the top three this season as the son of If I Can Dream will look for his first preferred victory with Adam Merner supplying the drive. Race analyst Les MacIsaac sees a possibility for any one of the six entries to hit the wire first and will defer to Mick Dundee's post position advantage.

"There's a possibility of some early mayhem up front so if Mick Dundee can sit and stalk all the way and exploit that good late kick he could get it all." Also in the deep field are Half Cut (Driven by Mark Bradley), Adkins Hanover (Corey MacPherson) and Rose Run Quest (Marc Campbell). Sodwana Bay was dominant in 2018 in the Open Mares Pace and showed more of the same last week in her seasonal debut.
