6 Kingofgoldstreet 118 Lezcano x-x-x Albertrani 10-1

7 Danza(L1) 118 Castellano x-x-x Pletcher 7-2

Permanent Campaign displayed nice turn of early foot in debut; tighter with race under belt. H Town Brown lured Johnny V away from pair of Pletcher-trained newcomers; could be the goods. Danza makes for start for Pletcher; need more?

11/16 Miles (Inner Turf). 3&up. Allowance. Purse: $77,000.

1 Ampersand(L) 122 Solis 3-7-5 Violette, Jr 3-1

8 Overwhelming(L) 117 Castellano 1-10-2 McGaughey III 15-1

Main Track Only

9 Blue Creek(L) 122 No Rider 1-5-2 Rodriguez 5-2

Ampersand logged seven tight works since pace and trip compromised in last; rail draw is key on tight-turned course. Kharfa was a fast-figured second behind a repeat winner in last and bested top selection by nearly two lengths on May 3; could easily take this. Joking is rested and should be favorably positioned in field that's light on speed; don't ignore.

6 Furlongs (Widener Turf). 2yo. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $70,000.

1 Scoria 118 Maragh x-x-x Clement 10-1

2 Street Gent 118 Solis x-x-x Gyarmati 20-1

3 Frogman Mel(L1) 118 Castellano x-x-x Pletcher 5-1

10 Maria's Dunkirk(L1) 118 Ortiz x-x-x Contessa 15-1

11 More Than Classic 111 Davis x-x-x Ward 6-1

General Jack worked 15 furlongs in final two weeks of preparation; best guess. Tiger Bourbon is from a dam that's produced three turf winners. Bashart logged two 5-furlong works on the Saratoga sod; charting a must.

7 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $70,000.

1 Tapitinsilver(L) 119 Alvarado 8-9-x Mott 12-1

4 Quay(L1) 119 Maragh x-x-x Ribaudo 8-1

5 Simplie Sinister(L1) 124 Jimenez x-x-x Reiff 30-1

6 Merry Meadow(L) 119 Castellano 2-2-3 Hennig 5-1

7 Laguna Girl(L) 119 Rosario 2-5-2 Orseno 5-1

Merry Meadow is 0-for-10 but may have finally found the right field. Laguna Girl has worked four times since besting a next-out winner when a late-running second in last. Sheer Drama was a pole clear for second when bested by a repeat winner in debut at Del; very dangerous.

9 Indian Starlight(L) 121 Velasquez 1-2-2 Quartarolo 15-1

Main Track Only

10 Sonja's Angel(L) 121 No Rider 1-1-1 Rodriguez 6-5

Dance With Gio ships in for crafty Jersey-based barn and is 1-for-1 on Belmont grass; rates close call. Sally's Dream logged solid final fraction when an even fourth in last; big-time player. House On Toilsome gets class relief and will be aided by today's longer trip. Celebrity Sighting owns fast dirt figs; very interesting.

1 Mile. 3&up. NY Bred. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $67,000.

1 Seventy Six(L) 117 Alvarado 5-1-2 DeMola 4-1

9 M P Joe(L) 122 Espinoza 1-5-3 Chin 30-1

10 Sky Colors(L) 115 Tomas 3-5-4 Ortiz 20-1

Saturday Appeal was a front-running winner on May 19 and is working with a purpose for return; controlling speed once again. Seventy Six packs a solid stretch kick on 'A' game; dangerous. Smokin Candy bested a simialr field last time and now makes first start since claimed by Bruce Levine; must consider. M P Joe could impact if pace meltdown ensues.

10 Romancing the Gold(L) 122 Prado 3-3-5 Galluscio 3-1

11 Uncle T Seven(L) 122 No Rider 7-1-6 Jacobson 7-2

Blingo is working strongly for first start in 335 days and owns fast late pace figures on best efforts. Mia Poppy is speedy, owns fast numbers and is 4-for-7 on Belmont sod; big-time player. Magical Season consistently earns swift numbers; right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Maiden Claiming $16,000. Purse: $26,000.

1 Southern Safari 124 Lezcano 8-x-x Jerkens 4-1

2 Fairy Snow(L) 112 Tomas 5-6-7 Persaud 20-1

3 Go to the Net(L) 124 Maragh 3-7-5 Sciacca 12-1

4 M P Ruckus(L) 124 Saez 2-2-5 Barker 7-2

5 Imreloaded(L) 124 Ortiz 7-4-2 Duggan 3-1

6 Gamble(L) 119 Espinoza 9-10-6 Donato 20-1

7 Anything Green(L) 119 Richards 10-9-x Scott 50-1

8 Opposing Parties(L) 119 Ortiz, Jr 6-7-4 Orseno 8-1

9 Velocci(L) 119 Prado 3-4-3 Galluscio 5-1

10 Harvest King(L) 124 Jimenez 2-3-3 Reiff 10-1

Harvest King wheels back in a hurry after clear-cut placing last week; tighter in second start since February. Imreloaded drops, returns to dirt and could capitalize on unchallenged lead; very playable. Velocci was compromised by wide trip in last; don't ignore. M P Ruckus was second to a repeat winner in last; right in the thick of this.
