Perfect Escape (Gilles Barrieau) looms a danger off the rail while riding a two-race win streak and Doing Some Damage (Corey MacPherson) exits preferred company to draw post 6. Ryan Desroche will make his top class debut on the program, as the 18-year-old Prince Country native drives Eagle Jolt from post 5 for trainer Marc Campbell. Race analyst Les MacIsaac likes post 2 and Montreal Phil to land in the winner's circle.

The Trevor Hicken trainee has drawn post 3 in the $2,200 feature event scheduled as race 11 on the Thursday evening program with the first of 12 dashes scheduled to kick off at 6:30 PM. Bazillion will have Brian MacPhee back in the bike for owner Kent Livingston of Cornwall after finishing third last Saturday during Governor's Plate night action at Red Shores Summerside. The six-year-old son of Village Jolt did all the front end road work in that start only to give way to Smiley Bayama down the stretch in a scorching 1:55 mile. With an inside post and Smiley Bayama leaving on his outside, the score could be settled this Thursday, with the post 6 leaving Smiley Bayama scheduled to have Adam Merner in the bike for trainer Ron Gass and owners Shelley and Alexis Gass, of Cornwall. Race analyst Les MacIsaac sees Bazillion setting up shop on the front end again this week but think rail starter My Lucky Killean (Ken Murphy) can leave enough to make front-end-control a dear price to pay. MacIsaac says this will all play into the game plan for Smiley Bayama to win it all and turn his three race win streak into four. "He's firing on all cylinders right now with three straight wins," MacIsaac said. "The possibility of some early mayhem up front could set things up nicely for his rallying style and give him a great chance to keep the streak intact."

The race 6 Open trot carries a $1,950 purse and see a career opportunity for a 18-year-old reinsman.
