Each week, Meadowlands racing analyst Bob Heyden ranks the Top 10 contenders for the $1-million Meadowlands Pace on July 18.

1. WELL SAID - Exploded home to win Pepsi North America Cup in a stakes record 1:48.1. The $240,000 yearling has jumped atop everyone’s list after his completely dominant mile.

2. ART COLONY - Disappointing in his NA Cup elim, but bounced back and got up for second in the final. Casie Coleman: "I would say he's all the way back and I was thrilled with his race."

3. MR WIGGLES - Just missed third in NA Cup final. Teague: " I was happy with the way he finished for sure. He's a versatile horse, and I felt going in that he was a main contender."

4. IF I CAN DREAM - Sixth, but paced in 1:49.4, in the NA Cup. Overdue for a mile in which he makes a late sweeping move.

5. ANNIESWESTERNCARD - Berry’s Creek winner shocked at 50-1 to make the NA Cup final but was a non-factor in the final.

6. MILLIONAIRE CAM - Toured the oval from post 10 in NA Cup final; quality colt needs a better post and fast pace.

7. CHASIN RACIN - Seventh in NA Cup, but really had no chance at the start or finish.

8. VINTAGE MASTER - Didn't make the NA Cup final after an untimely break in his elim, but his comeback was memorable.

9. LISAGAIN - Third in NA Cup consolation, but so far stuck in the starting gate.

10. PASSMASTER HANOVER - Failed to make NA Cup Final after his NJ Classic win. Will Burgess, the leader in big money races, have him ready?
