Wildhaassseee was done in by hot fractions in last; softer flow today. Toninthirteen could be the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Winter Now owns speed and is right in the thick of this on 'A' game.

Risk Management tallied solid final fraction after bad start in debut; pair of half-mile bullets in the interim seals the deal. Perfect Danger displays pop-and-stop line in first start; puncher's chance. Able Baker Charlie was just two lengths behind top selection on Feb. 23; must factor into mix.

5 Bye Bye Bernie(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 7-2-4 Breen 7-2

Dads Caps visually and numerically impressed in debut; more to come. Tenango was a fast-figured second in Capossela; dangerous. Bye Bye Bernie regressed in last after game placing in prior; rebound potential. Killin Me Smalls could impact if fractions get hot and hectic.

8 Don't Hook My Halo(L1) 113 Tomas x-x-x Hertler 20-1

China Gold was clear by a city block when second to a runaway winner in last. Legal Lady compiled sharp work slate for debut; follow the money. D'Alessandro entry: Tizaheroine adds blinkers after clear-cut second in debut and mate Dizzy Disco Diva lost irons in last; very interesting.

7 Pennymine(L) 116 Coa 6-7-1 Schosberg 8-1

5 Avenging Spirit(L) 118 Maragh 5-1-8 Pletcher 5-2

6 Magic Harbor(L) 120 Velasquez 3-1-2 Rodriguez 2-1

Rein King fired swift 5-furlong drill since speed sharpened in sprint last; controlling front-runner with proper ride. Magic Harbor was pace and trip compromised when third as the favorite in last; very dangerous. This Hard Land and Irish Lion boths pack late kicks and would be aided by pace meltdown.

7 Ruler On Ice(L) 119 Ortiz, Jr 1-10-2 Breen 3-1

Last Gunfighter fires fast final fractions and has trained sharply since winning Evening Attire last time. Joan's Choice was a hand-ridden winner at today's 9-furlong trip last time; big-time threat. Ruler On Ice got his game back when a determined winner in return from four-month layoff last time; very dangerous.

Chubbalita's Joy gets weight off and could land in exotics at juicy number.
