5Street Beauty(L1)118Saezx-x-xTagg7-2

Madgi tallied solid final fraction in debut last summer and is firing bullets for return. Previous shows work tab that culminated with half-mile bullet; follow the money. Sister State delivered strong efforts in both starts at GP; right in the thick of this.

Glorious Exit logged three crisp works since tough-trip third in well-bet debut; call based on price potential. Saturday Nthe Park has finished second in last three starts; continues trend? Garmentos Girl never fired when favored in last at GP; dangerous on 'A' game.

6Belle Gallantey(L)122Velasquez2-2-4Friedman5-1

Belle Gallantey turns back to sprint and should pack amplified kick in evenly-matched field. Finders Key adds blinkers and is 1-for-1 at 6 1/2-furlong distance; dangerous. McCarren Park is fresh and owns fast numbers on best efforts.

10Smoke Town(L)118Saez3-6-6Nevin6-1


Lakota Freud notched solid late pace figs on turf last year and fired 5-furlong bullet drill for return. Smoke Town owns speed and makes third start of form cycle; serious player. Antone Suavey made late rally when third at 95-1 in last; long-priced exotics player once again.

10Stately Cat(L)112Rivera5-2-1Persaud6-1

Bozique drops, returns to dirt and could rebound to best efforts at juicy ticket. Dissension also gets class relief and packs solid late kick on 'A' game. Jazzington was pace compromised when a clear-cut second in last; dangerous.

9Delta Doyenne(L)116Velasquez1-4-xDutrow8-5

Chloe Bear notched two, crisp half-mile works since hard-charging victory in last; pairs up. Adriatic Dream consistently logs fast final fractions and should have more to give in second start since five-month absence. Heart of New York is 1-for-1 on Belmont sod and training with a purpose for first start since New Year's Day.

10Tancredi(L)122No Rider1-2-1Barbara8-1


Hear the Footsteps packs solid stretch kick on best efforts and should receive favorable setup in probable pace dynamics. Karakorum Elektra, an uncoupled barn mate of top selection, also closes strongly and owns 10 wins on Belmont grass. Dr Disco earned improved pace figure in last; must consider. Writingonthewall (dominant winner in last) and Uncle T Seven (returns to claiming ranks) are two more contenders in deep field.

12Sovereign Default(L)122Cohen7-5-1Jacobson4-1

Idle American tallies swift final fractions on 'A' game and should offer generous ticket in wide-open nightcap. Plainview is speedy, rested and training sharply; very dangerous. Kharafa also is working strongly and owns two wins from four starts on Belmont turf. Cantonic owns fast figs and hails from white-hot Mike Maker stable; right in the thick of this.

1aAfternoon Treat(L)115Franco7-2-3Brown6-1

Ziptronic compiled eye-catching work tab for first start since October and packs potent late kick on 'A' game. Decisive Move is fresh and could play out as the speed of the speed. Evacuation Route could impact if pace meltdown ensues. Capetown Devil drops and owns fast numbers on best efforts.
