4 Ea(L) 121 Garcia 1-1-1 Jacobson 4-1

5 Star of New York(L) 121 Velasquez 5-4-2 Quick 5-1

Star of New York is rested and should be favorably placed near the front in compact field. Keep Me Informed is fresh and owns fast figs on 'A' game. Ea has won three straight for dynamic Drawing Away/David Jacobson duo; right in the thick of this.

13 Blazing Arches(L) 123 Silvera 4-5-3 Toscano, Jr 12-1

14 Raquel(L) 123 Maragh 2-2-7 Balsamo 2-1

Always Home tallied solid final fraction when a much-improved third in last; more to come. Shewreckstheplace was an even third in last and bested top selection by nearly a length two starts back; very dangerous. Classic Point is speedy and could prove tough on an unchallenged lead.

1 Mile. 3&up. Claiming $30,000-$25,000. Purse: $36,000.

1 Minescape(L) 120 Rosario 4-1-6 Jacobson 5-2

6 A Boy Named Em(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 3-2-3 Reid, Jr 8-1

7 Photon(L) 118 Garcia 5-2-3 Dutrow, Jr 5-1

Talented Whiz was a pace-pressing winner in last at Lrl and could get early jump in field that's light on speed. Minescape drops and will be aided by today's additional furlong; very playable. Photon also gets class relief and closes strongly on best.

4

1 Victoryat Last(L) 121 Luzzi 6-3-3 Figgins, III 4-1

9 Evan's Rocket(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 3-8-4 Jerkens 10-1

10 My Unbridled Storm(L) 116 Ortiz 4-5-2 Gyarmati 20-1

Victoryat Last has been facing pricier fields at CT and owns a win at Belmont at today's mile distance. Tapitude was a clear-cut second in last and should have more to give in second start since two-month layoff. Here's Zealicious was an easy maiden winner in last at Pen; very interesting.

1 Mordi's Miracle(L) 120 Dominguez 8-6-x Pletcher 8-1

8 Invocation(L) 120 Rosario 3-3-6 Kimmel 6-1

9 Artie's Jasper 120 Alvarado x-x-x Jerkens 15-1

Lake Superior hails from powerful second-out stable and should offer generous price. Tuckers Point was an ultra-game second in last; dangerous. Last Gunfighter is training with a purpose for first start since March; must consider.

Main Track Only

16 Bluffing Quality(L) 120 No Rider 9-7-7 Ronen 20-1

Desert Bliss made sustained rally when second in last and should pack amplified wallop at 6 furlongs. It's Your Dime was second to a perfect-trip winner in last; very dangerous. Fast and Strong has delivered strong efforts in all three starts. Carey Princess' speed must be respected.

7

1a Buffum(L) 119 Castellano 6-1-2 Albertrani 7-2

2b Saginaw(L) 121 Dominguez 1-1-1 Jacobson 4-1

Beau Choix makes peak start of form cycle after pace and position compromised in last. Crossbow could play out as the dominant speed in first turf start. Boots Ahead is riding a two-race winning streak; very playable.

8

1 Carson Hall(L) 121 Lezcano 6-2-1 Servis 10-1

15 Irish Lion(L) 121 No Rider 3-3-4 Badgett, Jr 5-2

16 Andersonstate(L) 121 Maragh 6-5-6 Baker 7-2

Candy Feat lived up to distance-loving pedigree when a determined winner in first start on Belmont sod; pairs up. Presumptive has delivered two strong efforts since returning from three-month absence; very playable at fat ticket. Arc Above has won at a marathon distance and is working with a purpose for first start in seven weeks.

6 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $38,000.

11 Stray Bullet(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 5-2-4 Jacobson 15-1

12 Sansannah(L) 120 Garcia 6-3-7 Englehart 15-1

Main Track Only

13 Roman Renegade(L) 120 Velasquez 1-2-2 Levine 5-2

14 Sasta Go Lucky(L) 120 Lezcano 10-1-8 McClelland 8-1

1a Annelle(L) 118 No Rider 10-4-4 Brown 3-1

Vinda is riding a forward line on the numbers and pulls weight from the main contenders. Stray Bullet should pack enhanched kick with cutback to sprint. To the Point was a fast-figured second in last; bounces today? Aba Dabbler exits ultra-game placing in most recent; dangerous. Debonair Dancer will benefit from return to turf today.
