7 Mr. Style(L) 113 Rice 4-2-6 Rice 3-1

Two More Jacs was a clear-cut winner at 20-1 last time and should offer juicy price once again. Mr. Style owns speed and fast figures; very dangerous. Brother Bob has been sidelined for 91 days but is more than good enough on 'A' game.

6 Stunning Lady(L) 118 Maragh 5-5-1 Hennig 12-1

Stunning Lady is 2-for-2 on inner oval and has shown a history for firing winning efforts off the bench. Masasi owns solid late kick and could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues. Champagne Rain compiled tight work tab for first start since November; don't ignore.

9 Keen On Green(L) 115 Rice 5-9-x Contessa 15-1

Princesa de Papi drops and should move forward with race under belt. Star Magnolia was a front-running third in last and now makes first start since claimed by high-percentage stable. Unafraid debuts for capable first-out barn; follow the money.

8 Your Time Is Up(L) 121 Ortiz 1-1-7 Violette, Jr 5-2

Haldane wheels back in a hurry for new barn after fast-figured win last week. Your Time Is Up was freshened for 55 days after winning two straight; very playable. My Donna Jean was a determined winner in last; price will be tempting.

8 Engine(L) 124 Castellno,Jr 5-2-3 Brown 7-2

9 Winter Games(L) 124 Ortiz 2-3-3 Englehart 8-1

Tony D was third behind a pair of next-out winner last time; call based on price potential. Away Game was a two-move third last out; forward move expected. Engine never got out of neutral on a good surface last time but logged solid final fractions in prior two starts; bounce-back threat.

11 Blue Ballerina(L) 111 Mejias 4-4-4 Barrera, III 12-1

Bileaps and Bounds regressed in last after chasing hot pace and earning career-best internal figs in prior; breakthrough predicted. Mrs. Bean owns speed and fast numbers but will offer short odds; your move. Myperfectvalentine turns back to a sprint and should pack intensified late wallop.

6 Furlongs. Allowance. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Non winners of 1 race(s) except Purse: $62,000

2b Lost in Success(L) 121 Velasquez 1-2-3 Rodriguez 2-1

7 Keep Bustin(L) 118 Ortiz 5-6-1 Levine 8-1

Make the Moment makes peak start of form cycle after tough-trip fourth in last; set for 'A' game. Keep Bustin failed as the favorite in last at Prx but is 3-for-4 on inner track; very dangerous. Lost In Success was a dominant winner in last and has yet to take a backward step on the numbers; big-time player. Highestmaintenance has burned shiploads of cash in last three starts; you've been warned.

5 1/2 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $16,000. 4&up. NY Bred. Purse: $23,000.

9 It Was All Good 121 Mayta 7-x-x Jerkens 20-1

10 Bob and Jim(L) 116 Rice 8-3-8 Iselin 12-1

Insighting logged three tight works for first start since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez; call in weak nightcap. Pegasus Tiger is speedy and will prove tough on a soft lead. Chang's Secret could impact at fat ticket if pace meltdown ensues. D J's Hope is right in the thick of this on best efforts.
